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 400 MPa. The material is supplied in four levels of translucency, the resulting restorations exhibit lifelike aesthetics, independent of the shade of the preparations.
IPS e.max Press is used to produce single-tooth restorations, bridges for the anterior and premolar region and implant superstructures. Minimally invasive inlays and onlays (1 mm) and thin veneers (0.3 mm) round out the indication range.
A wide selection of ingots is offered from which users can choose the one that suits their preferred processing technique (staining, cut-back or layering technique) and the case at hand (e.g. discolored preparation). The restorations are characterized or veneered with matching staining materials or layering ceramic from the IPS e.max Ceram assortment. The press material for the fabrication of fullcontour restorations is available in 16 A-D and four Bleach BL shades. The materials for the layering technique are supplied in group shades.
The high translucency ingots (HT) are suitable for the fabrication of minimally invasive full-contour
restorations, such as inlays, onlays and veneers. The restorations are characterized with staining
Full-contour partial crowns and crowns are fabricated with the low translucency ingots (LT). In the
anterior region in particular, the esthetic appearance of the restorations is maximized by employing
the cut-back technique.
The medium opacity ingots (MO) are used to fabricate substructures for vital or slightly discolored teeth. They create an ideal basis for lifelike restorations completed with the layering technique.
HO ingots 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.
