MicroDental IPS e.max™
IPS e.max is a leading-edge alternative to metal-based restorations. When esthetics cannot be compromised, e.max offers many benefits over PFM. Composing both of Lithium Disilicate and Zirconium Oxide, e.max offers supreme esthetics, versatility, and clinically-proven strength.
Known for our advanced skills in crafting all-ceramic restorations, our technicians apply that expertise to the IPS e.max product line. Our technicians, who have always crafted excellent restorations, are capable of bringing IPS e.max from good to great with superior fabrication of this innovative product.
From the team that introduced the IPS Empress line, revolutionizing esthetics in ceramics, IPS e.max is twice the strength of Empress, using a Lithium Disilicate glass-ceramic block. With a structural strength of up to 400MPa, IPS e.max is a remarkable option for your translucency requirements.
A GREAT ALTERNATIVE TO PFM
IPS e.max is composed of a single unibody material with nothing to debond from, which is the main reason for PFM framed restoration failure. It is safe for contacts on opposing teeth, having the wear characteristics of natural teeth and without being abrasive to natural dentition. IPS e.max also has no metal cost, making it a great alternative to PFM with predictable pricing.
IPS E.MAX VS. E2 (EMPRESS 2)
IPS e.max is not the same product as E2 (Empress 2). The microstructure of IPS e.max is different than E2. Of the IPS e.max Lithium Disilicate, 70% is the actual Lithium Disilicate crystal. E2 was only 60% Lithium Disilicate crystal, which accounts for the increased strength and full contour esthetics of IPS e.max.
