Emax Crowns vs Monolithic Zirconia Crowns vs PFM – Dental Lab Perth
This article will explain the difference and benefits between Emax crowns, monolithic zirconia crowns and porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crowns by a Perth Dental Lab.
Emax crowns are made of lithium and considered by many as the best option for dental patients searching for crowns. They are made of high-quality material and provides durability. It has a strength of 380-500 Mpa. Emax crowns are made of metal-free aesthetics and usually comes with a semi-transparent colour variation. On the downside, Emax crowns do not come with a metal alloy base. Also, it is considerably harder to block out the back teeth with Emax.
PFM stands for Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns. This kind of dental crowns is particularly used for structural build-up of the damaged tooth. PFM is a good option, but not as durable as Emax. They offer the similar strength of that Emax crown, but the problem appears with the opaque layer that decreases the aesthetic appeal (depending on the amount of ceramics applied)
Monolithic Zirconia Crowns
Monolithic Zirconia Crowns (also known as Zirconia Crowns) are known as one of the best crowns currently. These are more durable than other crowns, easily wearable and long-lasting. We at Perth Milling Centre, offer monolithic Zirconia crowns. Zirconia is a material with great strength and also it is indestructible. Zirconia’s strength can be as high as 1200 Mpa. This material is least allergic and provides natural looking teeth.
That is the reason why we offer Monolithic Zirconia crowns is because it is the ideal option amongst the three. It is long lasting and provides the best strength.
