IPS e.max System
The demand for aesthetic all-ceramic restorations is continuously increasing.
Depending on the case at hand and the preoperative situation, you can provide your patients with individual restorations that exhibit impeccable aesthetics and the required high mechanical stability, since IPS e.max comprises highly aesthetic and high-strength materials for both the PRESS and CAD/CAM technique. The restorations are suitable for both adhesive and conventional cementation.
IPS e.max CAD unites modern processing technology with a high-performance material. The lithium disilicate glass-ceramic is manufactured in an innovative technological process, unique in the dental industry. The glass-ceramic is processed for the laboratory in a crystalline intermediate phase. In this “soft” state, the material exhibits its unusual “bluish” color and strength of approximately 160 MPa. In this “blue” phase, the restorations can be manually adjusted or cut-back in a fast and efficient fashion. IPS e.max CAD acquires its final strength of 360 MPa and the desired esthetic characteristics, such as tooth color, translucency and brightness, during a simple and quick crystallization process.
