Veneers are used in the visible “smile zone” to improve aesthetics, usually from the top six to ten teeth. They can improve your teeth’s colour, shape, and position.
How can veneers help?
- Colour: To improve one or more discolored teeth, a precise shade of porcelain is chosen.
- Shape: Where teeth are small, veneers can be used and bulk must be added to make them more expressive and visible. A veneer can also restore the appearance of a chipped tooth.
- Position: Where a tooth is slightly out of position or there is a gap between the teeth, sometimes a veneer can be used to help align it with others.
Why do we use Emax® Veneers?
Emax ® veneers are ceramic pressed and their high strength and durability make it possible to produce them in very thin layers that allow little or no teeth to be drilled. As with conventional porcelain veneers, one of the greatest advantages of Emax ® veneers is to avoid drilling teeth to peg shapes.
The veneers are shaped in wax to produce the chosen shape after your dentist takes initial impressions. The wax veneers are then casted and the final veneer is produced using molten porcelain.
The superior strength of Emax ® Veneers enables them to be produced as ultra-thin layers but with much greater edge strength than “feldspathic” veneers and little chipping possibility.

The Emax® system consists of metal-free materials that closely resemble the appearance of natural teeth. Because Emax® all-ceramic crowns and veneers are created from a single piece of a material called lithium disilicate, your dentist is able to match your original tooth’s colour more consistently.
Veneers are very thin layers of ceramic that are added to the surface of a person’s front teeth. A crown covers the entire visible surface of the tooth and adds strength and stability. A crown can be used to repair a tooth that has been worn. Teeth grinding, an improper bite, age, fillings and tooth decay are a few common reasons for tooth wear.
Your dentist will evaluate your individual needs to determine the best course of treatment. The procedure to improve your smile will vary based on your situation so it is best to discuss this with your doctor.
The cost of the procedure will vary based on your dentist’s diagnosis. The cost will also depend on factors such as whether you have cavities or teeth that are in need of specific treatment. It is best to have this conversation during your initial consultation with your dentist to be able to gain a clear understanding of how much your procedure(s) will cost.
In many cases, your Emax® smile can be whiter than your actual teeth. Often, the treatment will also require some whitening of your un-restored teeth to make sure that your smile has a consistent beautiful appearance.
Emax® lithium disilicate is an extremely durable material and has been clinically proven for more than 10 years in the dental industry. With proper care and regular dental visits, Emax® restorations can serve you well for years to come.
