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 minimally invasive block - IPS e.max CAD HT (High Translucency)
Given their high translucency, HT blocks are ideally suitable for the fabrication of smaller restorations (e.g. inlays, onlays). Restorations made of HT blocks blend in seamlessly with the natural dentition due to their chameleon effect.
* The range of products varies according to the different CAD/CAM system.
