One of the challenges with high strength ceramic like e.max and zirconia is creating durable facial aesthetic results without compromising strength or longevity. Stain and glaze leaves the full strength ceramics intact, but has a lifespan. If we cut back and layer ceramics to the facial for aesethics, we compromise the strength of the final restoration.
