Versatile range of applications – select a suitable ingot for virtually every clinical situation

IPS e.max Press ingots are offered in five levels of translucency and in opalescent Impulse shades. The polychromatic IPS e.max Press Multi ingots are particularly attractive, showing a lifelike* progression of colour. Select a suitable ingot to suit the case at hand and the preferred processing technique (staining, cut-back or layering technique):

IPS e.max Press HT (High Translucency)

Due to their high translucency  the IPS e,max Press HT ingots are suitable for producing small restorations (e.g. inlays). Their lifelike "chameleon effect*" allows these restorations to adapt seamlessly to the natural tooth structure.[6]

IPS e.max Press MO (Medium Opacity)

Given their opacity, the IPS e.max Press MO ingots are intended for the fabrication of substructures that are placed on vital or slightly discoloured prepared teeth.[7]

IPS e.max Press HO (High Opacity)

IPS e.max Press HO ingots are ideal for fabricating frameworks on highly discolored dies.[8]

IPS e.max Press I (Impulse)

IPS e.max Press Impulse  ingots are suitable for veneers in light tooth shades, which require an opalescent effect.[9]

IPS e.max Press MT (Medium Translucency)

IPS e.max Press MT ingots are ideally suited for the staining technique as well as cut-back technique.[10]

IPS e.max Press LT (Low Translucency)

Their low translucency renders these IPS e.max Press LT ingots suitable for creating large restorations (e.g. posterior crowns). The material exhibits true-to-nature brightness and chroma*.

IPS e.max Press Multi

The IPS e.max Prss Multi ingot is used for the fabrication of highly esthetic veneers, anterior and posterior crowns as well as hybrid abutment crowns with natural* color gradient from dentin to incisal edge.[11]

IPS e.max Press
Abutment Solutions

IPS e.max Press is used to create individual, esthetic hybrid abutment restorations in combination with Viteo Base titanium bonding bases. Two options are available for this purpose:

  • hybrid abutments
  • hybrid abutment crowns
