Dental patients of today are looking for more than just a healthy and functional restorative solution. Aesthetics is playing an increasingly important role in their choice of dental restorations. As all-ceramics are both biocompatible and aesthetic, these materials are rapidly growing in popularity. IPS e.max allows you to offer your patients exceptionally beautiful restorations which also demonstrate high mechanical strength. You are bound to appreciate the wide range of possibilities that this innovative all-ceramic system will open up to you.
IPS e.max is the sum of many good ideas. The system allows you to select the most suitable all-ceramic material, depending on the indication at hand and the required strength of the restoration.
In many cases, a metal-free restoration that is stronger than stacked porcelain with comparable aesthetics and higher precision is required to achieve the ideal results. With more than 15 years of clinical experience as well as over 33 million restorations placed, IPS Empress Aesthetic remains the ultimate in leucite reinforced glass ceramics.
The system comprises a single veneering ceramic, which offers decisive advantages in combination work (lithium disilicate and oxide ceramics). All IPS e.max restorations demonstrate the same wear properties and surface gloss−irrespective of the framework material used. Therefore, the same aesthetic appearance is achieved throughout the different parts of the restoration.
In addition, IPS e.max crowns and bridges can be placed using not only adhesive but also self-adhesive and conventional methods.
Due to their natural-looking colour and optimal light transmission, lithium disilicate restorations offer highly aesthetic solutions. Depending on the needs of the patient, the restorations can be veneered with a highly aesthetic material or they can be fabricated to full contour and then economically characterized.
Even if the tooth's core is dark in colour (eg discoloured stump or titanium abutments), you no longer have to resort to zirconium oxide or metal-ceramic solutions. You can inform the dental laboratory about the colour that needs to be masked and the dental technician in charge will choose the IPS e.max lithium disilicate material with the required opacity to restore the natural aesthetic appearance of the tooth.
