Emax Porcelain Veneers vs Resin Veneers

Dental veneers are a popular and effective way to improve the appearance of your smile. Whether you're looking to fix chips, cracks, gaps, or stains, veneers can help you achieve the look you want. But with so many different types of veneers to choose from, how do you know which one is right for you?

In this article, we'll take a closer look at two of the most popular types of veneers: Emax veneers and resin veneers. We'll compare their features, benefits, and drawbacks to help you make an informed decision.

Emax Veneers

Emax veneers are made of a type of ceramics called lithium disilicate. Lithium disilicate is known for its strength, durability, and ability to mimic the natural appearance of teeth. Emax veneers are also less likely to stain over time and can be customized to match the color and shape of your existing teeth.


  • Strong and durable

  • Natural-looking

  • Resistant to staining

  • Customizable


  • More expensive than resin veneers

  • More time-consuming to place

Resin Veneers

Resin veneers are made of a type of composite material that is bonded to the surface of your existing teeth. They are thinner and more flexible than Emax veneers, making them easier to place and less invasive. Resin veneers can also be used to fix a wider range of dental problems, including gaps, chips, and uneven teeth.


  • Less expensive than Emax veneers

  • Quicker to place

  • Less invasive


  • Not as strong or durable as Emax veneers

  • Easily stains & yellows

  • Not as natural-looking as Emax veneers

  • Easily chips and breaks

Ultimately, the choice between Emax and resin veneers will depend on your individual needs and budget. Both types of veneers have their benefits and drawbacks, and the right choice for you will depend on your goals, the condition of your teeth, and the advice of your dentist. At Miami Smiles, we do not do resin veneers because the negatives far outweigh the positives.

It's important to schedule a consultation with a dental professional who can help you determine the best type of veneers for your needs. They will also help you understand the process, the costs involved, and what you can expect from your veneers in the long run. With the right veneers, you can achieve the smile you've always wanted and boost your confidence.
