e.max Press are biocompatible lithium
disilicate glass-ceramic ingots. They offer the fit,
form and function which is expected from pressed
ceramics. In addition, they offer improved
flexural strength (400 MPa). With optimized
esthetic properties creating
all-ceramic restorations that offer true-to-nature
results has never been so easy.
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.
IPS e.max ZirPress ingots
ideally combine the PRESS and CAD/CAM technique.
Take advantage of the accuracy of fit as well as the
strength of zirconium oxide-reinforced restorations.
The fluorapatite glass-ceramic ingots are used to
press onto IPS e.max ZirCAD frameworks.
IPS e.max ZirCAD frameworks are
either veneered with IPS e.max Ceram or IPS e.max
ZirPress is pressed onto them. The specially
developed ZirLiner, zirconia liner establishes an
optimum bond, no matter which technique you choose.
Due to its excellent final strength, IPS e.max
ZirCAD is the material of choice for indications
where high strength is required, e.g. posterior
IPS e.max Ceram is the
connecting element between the different components
of the all-ceramic system. You now only have to use
one layering ceramic, which will
enable you to achieve highly esthetic results on
glass-ceramics as well as zirconium oxide.
