What are Emax crowns?

Emax are special crowns – and their special because they’re made from lithium disilicate, which is one of the strongest dental crowns you can get.

The material is known for its superior strength as well as its appealing aesthetics – making it a popular restorative choice.

  • Tougher and more durable.
  • Newest type of crown and often the priciest.
  • Material harvested for its translucent colour.
  • Lithium disilicate glass – an all ceramic system.
  • Porcelain can be layered on top for a very realistic looking tooth.
  • Best for anterior crown placement.
  • Lasts between 10-15 years depending on treatment.

Metal-free crowns that match teeth!

Emax are preferred for their translucency.

Like porcelain crowns, Emax crowns have slightly translucent properties, which means it can come to close to matching your natural teeth. 

So, if you’re researching which type of crown is recommended for your visible smile, then Emax crowns should certainly be a contender.

What to keep in mind when choosing Emax

*If you’re trying to choose between Emax and zirconium, you should note that the only noticeable difference is that Emax is more translucent.

When choosing an Emax crown as your restoration, patients should know that Emax is not recommended for heavy biting forces. 

So, if you have a habit of grinding your teeth (bruxism), then we would advise against Emax as it might not be able to sustain such heavy forces – even in the front of the teeth.

Emax will work perfectly when placed on the front visible teeth as this isn’t an area that typically exerts heavy forces when chewing. However, you should avoid trying to place them on the back molars (posterior teeth) as this is where masticatory forces are heavy.

With all that said, placing Emax crowns on back teeth is a debatable topic. If a patient wants Emax, we can mold the material to be sturdy enough to withstand biting pressure, but it will depend on your lifestyle and any pre-existing conditions.

What can Emax do?

Emax fix broken and damaged teeth that are often beyond repair and cannot be saved by dental fillings or inlays.

That said, Emax crowns are also used to treat missing teeth, discoloured teeth, crooked teeth, and severely decayed teeth. Plus, they’re the perfect replacement to replace old porcelain fused to metal crowns that show unsightly metal lines.


In the case where you need multiple crowns, Emax is not recommended in this area and in treatments like dental bridges to replace multiple missing teeth.

4 years a customer and always professional yet friendly service. Corrected my major issues (fillings/caps) and while they're keen to ensure ongoing 'perfect teeth' they don't hard sell peripheral / optional treatments. Highly recommended

I was looking for somewhere with a personal touch, that I could trust and that’s what I got at Mint. They always remember my name and are so polite. After a year of zoom meetings I really wanted my teeth to be straight and the results completely surpassed my expectations. I now feel comfortable taking photos! The team explained everything clearly (I felt I could ask anything multiple times) appointments were always organised and it was a really easy, worthwhile process. My teeth look like my teeth but are now at their best.

The clinic is a really lovely place to visit - it is extremely clean and all of the staff are very friendly. They were kind and reassuring all the way through my Invisalign treatment - as well as having amazing technology at their disposal. Dr Imran is so accommodating and kept everything simple, addressing any concerns straight away. All in all I would definitely recommend Mint Dental Clinic, a lovely experience all round.
