IPS e.max CAD is the world's best-selling glass-ceramic1. It is suitable for the efficient fabrication of full-contour restorations and it is known for its versatile application options, comprehensive range of indications and for its high strength of 530 MPa2.
Both its aesthetic properties and durability have been confirmed in everyday clinical practice. As a result, the material can be used to fashion full-contour crowns of only 1mm thickness, which are subsequently seated with the adhesive technique.
Comprehensive range of indications
A wide variety of restorations can be produced with these materials – from thin veneers to three-unit bridges (up to the second premolar as the terminal abutment). High aesthetic standards are fulfilled due to the four different levels of translucency of the A-D shades and the special Bleach and Impulse shades.
The IPS e.max CAD range comprises blocks that come with a prefabricated connection for the direct cementation to Viteo Base. The adhesive titanium base is coordinated with a variety of implant systems. This allows implant-supported hybrid abutments and hybrid abutment crowns to be created at chairside using clinically proven products. Cementation is achieved with the self-curing Multilink Hybrid Abutment luting composite.
IPS e.max CAD LT (Low Translucency) - The versatile block
Given their low translucency which is similar to that of the natural dentine, LT blocks are ideal for the fabrication of larger restorations (e.g. posterior crowns). Restorations made from LT blocks convince users with their lifelike brightness and chroma. This prevents the incorporated restorations from greying.
