The highly aesthetic lithium disilicate glass-ceramic (LS2)
IPS e.max CAD is the world’s best-selling glass-ceramic. It is suitable for the efficient fabrication of full-contour restorations and is known for its versatile applications, comprehensive range of processing options and for its high strength of 530 MPa.
High-strength and tough material
More than 10 years of ongoing quality testing show that IPS e.max CAD offers a high biaxial flexural strength of 530 MPa. In addition, it shows a high fracture toughness of 2.11 MPa m1/2. This combination is particularly sought after in minimally invasive dentistry.
More than 10 years of clinical evidence
Clinical long-term success and scientifically documented results – the blue block has been on the market since 2005 and has since proven itself clinically.
From crowns, occlusal veneers, and inlays to hybrid abutments – IPS e.max CAD covers a unrivalled scope of applications in CAD/CAM glass-ceramics.
High aesthetic standards are fulfilled due to the four different levels of translucency, the A-D shades and the special Bleach and Impulse shades. The comprehensive range ensures excellent shade match.
Versatile cementation options
IPS e.max CAD restorations can be cemented adhesively, self-adhesively or conventionally, depending on the restoration type. This allows you to choose the appropriate cementation method for each clinical situation.
You get a 10-year guarantee on all placed IPS e.max CAD restorations. The IPS e.max Guarantee also applies retroactively for five years to restorations that were permanently placed on 1 July 2015 or later.
- Onlays (z.B. occlusal veneers, partial crowns)
- Three-unit bridges up to the second premolar as the terminal abutment
- Implant-supported hybrid restorations (hybrid abutments, hybrid abutment crowns)
High aesthetic standards are fulfilled due to the four different levels of translucency, the A-D shades and the special Bleach and Impulse shades.
Our clinically proven solutions provide you with versatile cementation options – depending on the restoration type, the restorations can be placed using either the adhesive, self-adhesive or conventional luting technique.
The bright block - IPS e.max CAD MT (Medium Translucency)
MT blocks demonstrate medium translucency and are used for restorations that require more brightness than HT restorations and more translucency that LT restorations.
* The range of products varies according to the different CAD/CAM system.
