IPS e.max ® CAD & Press All Ceramic

Dentists & technicians are often confronted with challenging cases that require them to balance both strength and esthetic demands requiring multiple substructures and multiple systems. When prescribing for an all-ceramic restoration, the more information that a laboratory receives regarding the underlying preparation, then they are better able to determine the most appropriate substructure material and ceramics necessary to result in the best esthetics possible. Information such as desired final shade, shade of the preparation (stump shade), notation of existing post or amalgam , if the tooth is endo treated and finally a digital photo of both preop and preparation. Please contact us for a specialized preparation shade guide.

Over the years, Empress ® has been synonymous with highly esthetic and accurately fitting all-ceramic bonded restorations. IPS e.max ®, a Lithium-disilicate glass ceramic has evolved as a result of innovations in ceramic technology by the same manufacturer, Ivoclar-Vivadent.

IPS e.max ® offers outstanding esthetics, high strength and predictable shade matching even with difficult combination cases. Conventional cementation or adhesively placed as indicated. Applications include single anterior or posterior crowns, veneers, 3-unit anterior bridges, inlays & onlays. Our technicians now have a greater flexibility of shades & opacities to create life-like esthetics independent of the shade of the prepared tooth.

IPS e.max ® Ceram is a low fusing nano-fluorapatite glass ceramic used for layering over the
IPS e.max ® substructure. This formulation provides an opalescence, translucency and brightness that delivers truly life-like restorations.
