Change the emax veneer into a traditional porcelain veneer and work in same ceramic system with the zirconia and PFM
We use GC initial z and mc
Still may require some staining but you should be in the ballpark as far as them matching

Well, been there done that. And it is not what I look for in a case... As suggested, above, you may want to talk to the Doc and ask for simplification. For example, use only e.max and Zr. In that case, and more so if you facial layer (same ceramic powder - ie same look) in the anterior segment, you should be able to get a unified appearance. Also, try to keep the 'pairs' (7 and 10, 8 and 9, etc) in the same material. Canines are usually more forgiving. As soon as you get to the posterior segments, it gets easier... If the client insists, and you use Ivoclar's Metal Ceramic powders, it should be possible to get a 'match' with the all ceramic crowns. Especially in the posterior segment.

Al put one up a few years ago where he challenged himself to produce the most similar outcome possible with PFM, PFZ, and Emax. I can't mangae to get the search just right to find it. May you'll have better luck and more time than I do at the moment.

That case I posted is one of the tougher ones I've done in awhile and I've had some challenges.. but my advice would be to get the value right first, keep the shade light with little to no chroma, and stain to match. Using GC porcelain on both helps.
