IPS e.max restorations

IPS e.max, by Ivoclar Vivadent, for crowns, bridges, onlays, inlays and veneers is a lithium disilicate glass ceramic that has optimized translucency, durability and strength. Due to the use of new technologies and optimized processing parameters, IPS e.max lithium disilicate has evolved beyond previously available lithium disilicate ceramics. IPS e.max restorations exhibit superior durability featuring 360-400 MPa of flexural strength. The opalescence, translucency and light diffusion properties of IPS e.max lithium disilicate were all designed to replicate natural tooth structure for beauty and undetectable restorations.

IPS e.max is available for both the press and the CAD technique. We, at Global Dental Solutions, LLC, choose to use the Press technique. Depending upon the case indications and/or Doctor's instructions, we will press the coping and stack porcelain upon it, or we will design and press the restoration to full contour. When stacking porcelain, we use the nano-fluorapatite layering ceramic, IPS e.max Ceram. When fabricated to full-contour, the monolithic structure has added strength, which is ideal for 2nd molars.

You may conventionally cement or bond all e.max restorations.
