IPS e.max® pressed ceramic
Ivoclar Vivadent IPS e.max® pressed restorations are one of our most popular. Combined with its durability and tooth like aesthetics this product is a favourite amongst our clinicians.
IPS e.max® is made from a material called lithium disilicate also know as glass ceramic. The composition is made up from quarts, lithium dioxide, phosphor oxide, alumina and potassium oxide. This composition gives the glass ceramic a high thermal shock resistance.
IPS e.max® is recommended for anterior and single tooth restorations. With a metal free base, you don’t have any greying around the gingival line as you would with a traditional PFM. This restoration is also to be etched and bonded giving you a superior join from tooth structure to crown.
