Interesting Cerec Same-Day Dental Crown facts -

  • Material used for crowns is EMAX, which is “lithium disilicate”

  • This material can withstand 360-400 (Mpa)

  • Material is radiolucent. Porcelain fused to metal crowns are radio opaque making it very difficult to spot new decay on films. The radiolucent nature of the all porcelain crowns allows decay to be easily detected when it is small and simple thus allowing a much easier, cost effective restoration in the future.

  • The crowns are milled from a solid block. Other types of crowns are porcelain stacked onto a metal or zirconia (ZrO2); while the substructure is hard and solid (ZrO2  withstanding1000 Mpa) the overlaying porcelain can only withstand 90Mpa thus making the singular, non stacked nature of the lithium disilicate crown much less prone to fracture.

  • Emax crowns are shown to be a very biocompatible material. Agar diffusion tests show the material to be non cytotoxic 

  • Although the material is very durable, studies have shown that it causes less wear on the opposing tooth’s enamel than other materials used. 

  • Emax crowns are dually retained. They are physically retained with resin cement, and chemically retained with a bonding process, thus making it much less likely to come out.
