Damaged teeth and those in poor condition can be strengthened and made to look like new thanks to ceramic crowns. The all-ceramic e.max™ crown looks and performs like your natural teeth, and will last indefinitely.
The Benefits of e-max™ Crowns
When you opt for an e-max crown, you get superior esthetic results. Smile whenever you wish and make great first impressions. There will be no dark lines at the gums and pieces can be fitted quickly with short and convenient treatment times.
The e-max™ Treatment Procedure
Dr. Brusky will first evaluable your teeth before making an impression of the existing tooth crown. The impression will be used to create the temporary crown with any necessary modifications to make it blend with your adjacent teeth.
The natural tooth will be prepared first before the temporary crown is glued in. After 7-14 days, the final crown will be securely bonded to place.
By the last treatment appointment, you’ll walk out of Dr. Brusky’s with a more complete smile and a boost in self-esteem.
Dr. Brusky can give you instructions on how to care for your e-max crown on a daily basis, along with your usual oral care routine, so that the prosthetic looks its best long into the future.

One of your front teeth has been damaged or doesn’t look so good. What can be done? Dr. Brusky might suggest an Empress Esthetic™ crown in cases like yours.
The Empress Esthetic is comprised of 100% ceramic and offers myriad advantages over traditional dental crowns. Besides looking like a strong, healthy tooth, the crown offers superior esthetics to virtually any crown on the market.
If you are not a patient who grinds their teeth a lot, these crowns are the preferred restoration for their beauty and life-like appearance.
What to Expect
Dr. Brusky will evaluate your existing tooth and make an impression, which will be used to create the temporary crown.
The natural tooth will be prepared to receive the crown before a temporary crown is glued on top. After 7-10 days, Dr. Brusky will bond your permanent crown to your prepared tooth, fortifying it against disease and decay.
If you have a history of breaking porcelain crowns or you tend to grind your teeth or clench them, Zirconia crowns may be for you.
Zirconia is a relatively new material in cosmetic dentistry. While it’s technically a metal on the periodic table, it looks just like ceramic. Crowns made entirely of this material are laser-milled by a machine which results in dental prosthetics that rival the strength of all-metal crowns.
For patients with a history of breaking porcelain crowns or who have a grinding or clenching habit, this material will have more durability in the long run and is much more esthetic than all-metal crowns.
While not as esthetic as an e.maxTM or Empress EstheticTM crown, they can still be used satisfactorily even in the front of the mouth. There is a new zirconia material called HT which stands for high translucency. It is now able to rival the aesthetics of e-max. It is also possible to veneer zirconia crowns with porcelain for enhanced esthetics.
Why Choose Zirconia Crowns
Zirconia crowns appear as natural teeth, and they’re incredibly strong, making them perfect for the back teeth. They can be made as thin as possible, allowing for less tooth reduction, and they can mask any type of tooth – diseased, decayed, or discolored.
What to Expect with Zirconia Crowns
Dr. Brusky will schedule two appointments to fit your new crown in place. Dr. Brusky will first make an impression of your teeth so that a temporary crown can be created. The tooth will be prepped and a mold made to send to a lab. The temporary crown will be glued over the prepared tooth while the dental lab fabricates the zirconia crown. After a week or so, the permanent crown will be affixed and bonded in place, providing strength and durability indefinitely.
