IPS e.max is a high strength (360 MPa) lithium disilicate glass-ceramic (LS2) for the CAD/CAM technique directly in the dental office (chairside) or the laboratory (labside). Its indication spectrum includes inlays/onlays, thin veneers, occlusal veneers, crowns, anterior/premolar bidges, implant superstructures as well as hybrid abutments and hybrid abutment crowns. In the fabrication of long-span bridges - also for the posterior region - IPS e.max CAD veneering structures are used in combination with zirconium oxide frameworks. IPS e.max CAD blocks are available in four levels of translucency (HT, MT, LT MO).
The HT blocks are supplied in 16 A-D shades and 4 Bleach BL shades. These high-translucency blocks that resemble natural enamel are ideally suitable for the fabrication of small restorations (e.g. inlays). Restorations made of HT blocks are characterized by their true-to-nature chameleon effect and the exceptional adaptation to the remaining tooth structure. They can be efficiently individualized using the staining technique. Even long-span bridges can be fabricated in combination with a zirconium oxide framework (Veneering Solutions technique*) * Depending on the CAD software used.
