Is an e.max crown a good choice when biocompatibility is a major consideration?

That is, how safe is the material for my overall health? Are there better materials than e.max in terms of biocompatibility and, if so, what are they? If there are better biocompatible alternatives to e.max, what are the advantages and disadvantages?

E.max Crowns

E.max crowns are a very good choice for biocompatibility. Gums around the E.max crowns always look much healthier compared to gums around gold crowns; or porcelain with metal crowns. The gums around E.max crowns also recede much less.
