Why we use Emax veneers for our patients

As technology evolves, we’re constantly looking for new ways to improve our patients’ smile and oral health. One of these great technological innovations, Emax veneers has changed how we treat patients for the better. They give your teeth the natural translucence and lustre of a healthy smile in far less time than traditional veneers. 

Let’s take a look at why we prefer to use Emax instead of traditional veneers.

What are Emax veneers?

Emax Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that we bond to the front surface of teeth. They are custom-made to fit the contour of your teeth. We use Emax to recreate the natural look of teeth. They also provide strength and resilience similar to natural tooth enamel. 

Who can benefit from Emax veneers?

Patients who want to enhance the appearance and structure of their teeth may benefit from Emax. Adults with misaligned, misshaped, chipped or crooked teeth are also good candidates. In some cases, we use Emax as an alternative to teeth whitening, since it masks tooth discolouration and staining. 

The benefits of Emax veneers

Less Invasive

Placing Emax is considerably less invasive than placing traditional veneers. This is because they are less thick and require less preparation. Only a minimal amount of drilling and filing will be required, meaning most of the natural enamel can be preserved. Most times, the process of getting Emax does not even require local anaesthesia.

Reduced Treatment Time

Since Emax veneers do not require much drilling and filing, it is much quicker to prepare for them. You do not There are no temporary veneers between appointments, since they will not drastically affect the function and appearance of your teeth. Fitting Emax takes as little as two appointments. The first appointment involves the tooth preparation process. During the second appointment, we bond the veneer shells into place against your teeth.

Strong and Durable 

Emax veneers have been the go-to choice for many dental practitioners because they are more durable and stronger than other types. They are incredibly tough and resistant to fractures, breakages and chips.

Less harmful

Older, traditional veneers were made from materials that could be harmful to living tissues. Emax veneers are made from completely biocompatible materials. This means you can be sure that the porcelain material used to form them will not damage your gum tissue or mouth.

Stain Resistant

When we compare different materials in the dental industry, porcelain has the highest resistance to staining. With Emax, you will have better defence against beverages that can discolour teeth, such as red wine, coffee and tea.


Since Emax veneers are incredibly durable and strong, they will actually last a long time. With the oral care, along with regular dental appointments, it’s possible for them to last up to 20 years. This is certainly a big improvement on the lifespan of veneers that normally would not last not more than 10 years.

More natural-looking

Emax allows in more light, giving your teeth a more natural appeal. As a result, they will give you a boost of confidence. Plus, no one  will be able to tell you’re wearing veneers.
