IPS e.max®

The monolithic properties of our IPS e.max® result in high flexural strength (360 – 400 MPa), excellent fracture resistance and stunning light-diffusion qualities. The high strength partnered with the high esthetics combine to replicate natural tooth structure for beauty and virtually undetectable restorations.
 

IPS e.max CAD is indicated for full anterior or posterior crowns. IPS e.max press is indicated for full anterior or posterior crowns and three-unit bridges having only one pontic with the second bicuspid as the most distal abutment. Veneers can also be indicated and are recommended when combining with adjacent IPS e.max crowns or bridges, provided ample reduction is achieved. Otherwise, original IPS Empress or IPS e.max CAD would be indicated for veneers, inlays and onlays.

IPS e.max should not be used in situations when preparation requirements cannot be achieved. IPS e.max is not indicated for Maryland-type bridges.
