IPS E.MAX® Press


IPS e.max® Press (pressed lithium disilicate) as an excellent and affordable, metal-free alternative to PFMs.  IPS e.max® Press provides world-class esthetics and outstanding marginal accuracy.

This lithium disilicate pressable material by Ivoclar is the single most esthetic and versatile material we have ever used.  It is our number one choice for anterior restorations for the most esthetically demanding patients. Select e.max® for its precision fit, relative strength of 400 MPa, opal qualities and high translucency.

Indications: Excellent for anteriors to premolars, including veneers and posterior inlays and onlays. Strong enough for up to three-unit bridges, pre-molars forward, and on ideal preparations.
Contra-indications: Cannot be cemented over dark stump shades, metal posts, or metal implant abutments. Please always be sure to include a stump shade for our evaluation.
Preparation: 1.5mm minimal reduction occlusally 1mm axially with champher margins preferred for best fits.
Seating: Bondable with resin cements for maximum esthetics and strength, all our e.max crowns are etched by us prior to delivery. e.max® is also cementable with some traditional crown and bridge cements.
