IPS e.max Zirconium Oxide

IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi anterior bridgemagnifying glass

The state-of-the-art, robust zirconium oxide ceramic IPS e.max ZirCAD is the material of choice when high mechanical strength, minimal restoration thicknesses, impressive esthetics and good biocompatibility are required. IPS e.max ZirCAD combines all these qualities and sets new standards.

Thin restoration walls possible
Due to the material’s high strength of 850 and 1,200 MPa1 as well as its high fracture toughness the wall thickness of restorations can be significantly reduced. As a result, tooth-conserving preparation and conventional cementation are possible. You will benefit from a perfect balance between thin restoration walls and optimum translucency. IPS e.max ZirCAD offers you maximum flexibility in the anterior and posterior region. The restorations can be glazed, stained or veneered: Your dental laboratory will finish the IPS e.max ZirCAD restorations according to the specific requirements of the individual patient.

With optional colour transition
IPS e.max ZirCAD is also available in polychromatic form. An advanced composition of raw materials is responsible for the improved mechanical properties (850 MPa1) of the material. It allows anterior restorations showing lifelike transitions of colour and translucency to be fabricated, which benefit from the stability provided by a monolithic structure. IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi imparts maximum esthetics to monolithic crowns and bridges without the need for a veneering ceramic.
