IPS e.max ZirCAD
The innovative and versatile zirconium oxide

Impressive in every respect

IPS e.max ZirCAD is the material of choice for cases in which high mechanical stability, thin restoration walls and natural-looking esthetics* are of the essence.
Tooth preserving and natural-looking restorations* with considerably reduced wall thicknesses can be created as the material provides high strength.

The comprehensive IPS e.max ZirCAD portfolio is available in a wide variety of different zirconium oxide materials with different properties and fields of application.  Select the appropriate disc depending on the type of restoration you are fabricating and whether you are completing the restoration monolithically or with a veneering procedure. 

Universal areas of application due to a wide range of solutions
  • Crown copings and crowns
  • Full-contour 3-unit bridges and bridge frameworks
  • Full-contour wide-span bridges and bridge frameworks
  • Implant-supported superstructures
Versatile processing options
  • Depending on which disc you select, there are several methods you may use to create your restoration, such as the monolithic method or the veneering technique. 
  • Select between infiltration, staining, cut-back or veneering technique
High stability 
  • Flexural strength of 850–1200 MPa1 depending on the selected IPS e.max ZirCAD material 
  • For thin restoration walls and minimally
    invasive solutions

Comprehensive portfolio for maximum flexibility and creative freedom 

The IPS e.max ZirCAD and IPS e.max ZirCAD discs are available in a wide variety of sizes, shades and translucency levels. The varying degrees of translucency are suitable for a wide range of processing techniques and indications. This enhances your flexibility, as you will always have a suitable disc at your disposal.

IPS e.max ZirCAD LT (low translucency)

IPS e.max ZirCAD LT is the allrounder in the portfolio. The material combines high mechanical stability (1,200 MPa)2 with pleasing esthetics.  These properties make IPS e.max ZirCAD LT suitable for the fabrication of minimally invasive single-tooth restorations and stable multi-unit framework structures. Restorations can be produced using a variety of techniques: monolithic method, infiltration, partial veneering and complete veneering. IPS e.max ZirCAD LT is available as a disc with a diameter of 98.5 mm and as a block in different sizes.
The discs and blocks are offered in 7 group shades and 8 A–D shades.  Especially available for the brush infiltration technique, the IPS e.max ZirCAD LT Colouring Liquids are optimally coordinated with the IPS e.max ZirCAD LT discs.

Areas of application:

  • Crown copings
  • 3-unit and multi-unit bridge frameworks with max. 2 pontics
  • Full-contour crowns
  • Full-contour 3-unit bridges
  • Full-contour 4- and multi-unit bridges with max. 2 pontics

IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi (medium translucency, polychromatic)

IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi is extremely versatile. The high-strength polychromatic and multi-translucent material is perfectly suited for producing efficient, esthetic and highly stable restorations – from crowns to 3-unit posterior bridges.  A particular feature is the composition of two material classes in one restoration: In the incisal area, the translucent class 5Y-TZP zirconium oxide ensures a high level of translucency. At the same time, the more opaque class 4Y-TZP zirconium oxide in the dentin region provides a high level of stability (850 MPa)2. 
The progression of shade and translucency maximizes the esthetic appearance of monolithic crowns and bridges even without additional characterization and optimizes the efficiency in the lab. Reproducing the tooth shade is made easy by the polychromatic discs in the A-D shades. If necessary, restorations can be customized using the staining or cut-back technique. IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi is available as a disc with a diameter of 98.5 mm and as a block in different sizes.

Areas of application: 

  • Full-contour crowns
  • Full-contour 3-unit bridges

IPS e.max ZirCAD MT (medium translucency)

IPS e.max ZirCAD MT is the creative one in the portfolio. The material combines sound mechanical stability (850 MPa)2 with impressive esthetic properties as a result of an optimized raw material mixture. It lends itself to various processing options and offers a high degree of flexibility. The A–D shade system enables an efficient fabrication of esthetic monolithic or layered restorations. The A–D Colouring and Effect Colouring Liquids are designed for maximum customization prior to sintering. IPS e.max ZirCAD MT is available as a disc with a diameter of 98.5 mm.

Areas of application:

  • Full-contour crowns
  • Full-contour 3-unit bridges
  • Implant-supported superstructures

IPS e.max ZirCAD MO (medium translucency)

IPS e.max ZirCAD MO has been developed for application in the classic veneering technique.
Even discoloured preparations and metal cores can be effectively concealed due to the material's heightened opacity. IPS e.max ZirCAD MO allows the fabrication of customized, highly esthetic restorations with an outstanding flexural strength of 1,150 MPa2 and high fracture toughness. IPS e.max ZirCAD MO is available as a disc with a diameter of 98.5 mm and as a block in different sizes.

Areas of application:

  • Crown copings
  • 3-unit and multi-unit bridge frameworks with max. 2 pontics
