Schnelle Kristallisation

Ihre Restaurationen lassen sich in sehr kurzer Zeit kristallisieren - dank der innovativen Technologie in der Brennkammer. IPS e.max CAD-Restaurationen benötigen nur etwas über 11 Minuten[2].

Speziell entwickelte Vakuumtechnologie

Die integrierte Vakuumtechnologie beschleunigt den Sintervorgang im Programat CS6 und erhöht gleichzeitig die Ästhetik Ihrer Zirkonoxid-
Restaurationen. Zusätzlich optimiert die Vakuum-Funktion den Kristallisations- und Glasurprozess.

Farbiger Touchscreen

Die Bedienung des Programat CS6 ist einfach und schnell. Der moderne, farbige Touchscreen ist intuitiv in der Anwendung und seine Langlebigkeit
macht ihn ideal für den Einsatz in der Zahnarztpraxis.

Further information on the two IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime discs and the Gradient Technology

The all-round disc at a prime level
IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime
IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime always offers a suitable solution

IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime is the One-Disc Solution and therefore the all-round genius within the portfolio. The high-strength zirconium oxide material (1200 MPa[4]) is characterized by high accuracy of fit and exceptional quality.

  • Wide spectrum of applications, ranging from crowns to 14-unit bridges[1]

  • Extensive fabrication possibilities: staining, cut-back, layering and infiltration

  • The One-Disc Solution simplifies stock management in the laboratory

Very high mechanical stability
  • Very high flexural strength (1200 MPa) in the dentin zone, where bridges have to withstand the strongest forces

  • For restorations on natural prepared tooth structure or on approved implant systems[1]

  • Ideal for complex cases involving gingival recession or bone loss

One material for all applications

Due to its high mechanical stability of 1200 MPa flexural strength[4], IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime covers all major applications – from single crowns to 14-unit bridges. Furthermore, it allows very thin, minimally invasive restorations to be made.

  • Full-contour crowns

  • full-contour 3-unit bridges

  • full-contour bridges composed of 4 or more units with max. 2 pontics

  • crown copings

  • bridge frameworks composed of 3 or more units with max. 2 pontics

Vincent Fehmer talks about IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime

MDT Vincent Fehmer (Switzerland) talks about the differences between conventional multi-layer zirconia and IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime. He mentions the smooth progression of shade and translucency within the disc in particular.

Redefining zirconium oxide esthetics
IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime Esthetic
Easy – economical – natural

Do you fashion the majority of your crowns with zirconium oxide? Do you have exacting expectations of the materials you use and the restorations you create? Are you constantly on the look-out for new and effortless ways to achieve impressive lifelike restorations? If that is the case, we invite you to discover the new IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime Esthetic! 

It takes only a few steps to produce esthetic monolithic restorations. Additional staining or layering is unnecessary in most cases. Simple polishing or glazing is adequate for achieving an accurate match with the A-D shade guide. Efficiency and a low susceptibility to error are decisive benefits of the product.

Efficient route to achieving the desired esthetic result in a monolithic restoration
  • Straightforward polishing with OptraGloss or glazing with the fluorescent IPS Ivocolor glazing paste

  • Reliable and reproducible process

  • Minimal manual effort, yet impressive natural-looking results

For most of your zirconium oxide restorations
  • For crowns and 3-unit bridges

  • For restorations of a consistently high level of esthetic quality

IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime Esthetic: Impressions

IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime Esthetic & IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime
IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime Esthetic and IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime ideally complement each other in terms of their material composition and their range of applications. While IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime Esthetic stands out because of its efficiency in the fabrication of crowns and 3-unit bridges, IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime is characterized by its versatility. Both materials exhibit excellent quality and esthetics.
Synonymous with prime quality

Gradient Technology (GT) is the key to the genuinely seamless progression of shade and translucency within the disc, the outstanding accuracy of fit of the product and its efficient processing properties. It is based on a blend of two zirconium oxide raw materials of different strengths and optical characteristics.

Highly translucent incisal zone
  • Optimally coordinated shade

  • Highest translucency in the incisal zone

  • Highly esthetic 5Y-TZP zirconium oxide

  • Flexural strength: 650 MPa[2]

  • 3-mm thickness, irrespective of the disc thickness

The unique Gradient Technology (GT) is at the heart of IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime. Innovative processing technology is used to manufacture the disc using a combination of two zirconium oxide raw materials (3Y-TZP or 4Y-TZP with 5Y-TZP) to produce the striking properties of the IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime material.


Natural-looking esthetics
The seamless progression of shade and translucency ensures ensures a natural transition from dentin to enamel. The innovative filling technology sets the disc apart from other traditionally manufactured discs and has no layers within the disc.
Accuracy of fit
Advanced and optimized powder conditioning ensures adjusted sintering kinetics. This results in uniform shrinkage behavior and outstanding accuracy of fit.
Optimized translucency
The compaction of the discs by means of "Cold Isostatic Pressing" (CIP) ensures not only an enhanced microstructure but also optimized translucency.
Precise shading
Simple polishing or glazing produces an excellent shade match with the A-D shade guide. Staining is not necessary. For the efficient fabrication of shade matched restorations.
