The visionary idea of pressing all-ceramic restorations became a reality in 1991 when we introduced a pioneering new method of fabricating dental restorations: the ceramic pressing technology. Today, many years later, this breakthrough technology in esthetic dentistry is still considered to be a proven and future-proof manufacturing method.
Our press technology is characterized by superb esthetics, utmost precision and exceptional efficiency. The system is future-proof and the go-to solution for dentists and dental technicians around the world – now and in the future.
Dental technicians and dentists can fully trust our original pressing technology . It fits into every workflow and budget without having to make any compromises. The workflow combines reliable all ceramics materials  such as the IPS e.max Press and future-oriented equipment such as the Programat press furnaces.
