There is no treatment that fits everyone. This is also the case when we want to choose between Feldspathic dental veneers or other types of dental veneers. Upon the clinical situation, we decide whether to use Emax veneers or feldspathic.

Feldspathic Advantages:

Color control is much easier since the whole veneer is made of Porcelain.
Amount of reduction required is less since there is no frame/core for the veneer

External finishing will not remove color which is quite helpful for aged veneers.
