IPS e.max Press
IPS e.max Press are lithium disilicate glass-ceramic ingots for the press technique.
The innovative IPS e.max Press lithium disilicate glass-ceramic (LS2) offers excellent fit, form and function combined with high strength of 500 MPa. The material is supplied in seven levels of translucency and ingot two sizes. The resulting restorations exhibit lifelike aesthetics, regardless of the clinical situation.
IPS e.max Press is used to produce single-tooth restorations, bridges for the anterior and premolar region, inlays, onlay, implant superstructures and custom implant abutments.
A wide selection of ingots are available from which users can choose to suit their preferred processing technique (staining, cut-back or layering technique) and clinical demands. The restorations are characterised or veneered with coordinated staining materials or layering ceramic from the IPS e.max Ceram assortment. Materials intended for full-contour restorations are available in 16 A-D and four Bleach BL shades. The substructure materials for the layering technique are supplied in varing levels of chromatic shades.
These polychromatic and polytranslucent ingots provide a natural shade progression from the margin to the incisal edge, and enable technicians to achieve a strong and highly aesthetic restoration without needing to cutback and layer.
The high translucency ingots (HT) are ideal for the fabrication of minimally invasive full-contour restorations, such as inlays, onlays and veneers. The restorations can then be characterised with staining materials in the IPS e.max Ceram line.
The medium translucency ingots (MT) are perfect for a variety of indications from thin veneers to 3-unit bridges and are ideal for restorations requiring a higher brightness level than HT and more translucency than LT.
Full-contour partial crowns and crowns are fabricated beautifully with the low translucency ingots (LT). In the anterior region in particular, the aesthetic appearance of the restorations is maximised by employing the cut-back technique.
The medium opacity ingots (MO) are used to fabricate substructures for vital or slightly discoloured teeth. They create an ideal basis for lifelike restorations completed with the layering technique.
In cases where the prepared tooth structure is discolored or titanium abutments are used, the HO ingots mask the dark background to achieve highly aesthetic results.
Impulse Opal ingots
The best option for enamel replacement. Restorations fabricated with these ingots exude exceptionally opalescent properties making them ideal for (thin) veneers with light teeth requiring an opalescent effect.
