If you are considering a smile makeover with veneers, the brand and material of the veneers is an important factor to consider.  There are a range of brands and materials of veneers on the market, and IPS eMax veneers are one of the best.  eMax porcelain veneers are also quite affordable abroad, and cost around $300-$500 per tooth, compared to an average price of $1,300 each at home.

What are eMax veneers?

IPS eMax porcelain veneers are considered the best full porcelain veneer currently available worldwide.  They have outstanding cosmetic appearance and exhibit the natural translucence and shine of ideal healthy teeth.  The e.Max veneers are made from lithium disilicate glass ceramic that is both extremely strong and provides outstanding aesthetics.  The opalescence, translucency and light diffusion properties of IPS eMax lithium disilicate are designed to replicate natural tooth structure for beauty and undetectable restorations.
The eMax veneers can be color matched to your existing teeth for seamless natural integration your smile, and they can also be fabricated to the shade and color of your desired ideal smile!
In the veneers preparation process, the front of the tooth is shaved down by the dentist so that the veneers can be fitted over the top of the tooth.  Since the eMax veneers are much stronger and longer lasting than traditional porcelain veneers, they require very little tooth removal.  For patients, this means that the integrity of your teeth is preserved and there is little to no discomfort experienced during the tooth preparation.  The eMax veneers have a thickness of 0.3mm-0.5mm, depending on the clinical/cosmetic need.  Traditional porcelain veneers have a minimum thickness of 0.5mm and are prone to chips and cracks.

Advantages of IPS eMax veneers:

  • Beautiful natural appearance
  • Highest strength and longest lasting veneers available
  • Very little tooth preparation needed
  • Little to no discomfort in the preparation method

eMax Veneers or Lumineers?

Lumineers are another famous brand of porcelain veneers, and they are another excellent option for patients who do not wish to travel.  They are also quite thin and require minimal tooth preparation;   Lumineers can be as thin as 0.2mm-0.3mm, but most are the same thickness as the eMax veneers.  The disadvantage to the Lumineers is that they are all produced by the same dental lab in California, so the cost is quite high, no matter which dentist places them.  Typically the Lumineers cost around $1,600-$2,000 per tooth, whereas eMax veneers usually cost only $300-$500 per tooth with a dentist abroad.
