Ivoclar Vivadent's IPS e.max is the ultimate in metal-free esthetics and durability offering high-strength materials for both the PRESS and the CAD/CAM technique.
No matter which technique is chosen, all components are available from 1 manufacturer. If clinicians prefer to work with the PRESS technique, 2 different types of ingots are available: IPS e.max Press, a high-strength glass-ceramic and IPS e.max ZirPress, an esthetic glass-ceramic which is pressed onto zirconium oxide in a fast and efficient procedure. For CAD/CAM applications, either the highly esthetic IPS e.max CAD ceramic glass blocks or the high-strength IPS e.max ZirCAD zirconium oxide can be selected, depending on the case requirements. The nano-fluorapatite layering ceramic IPS e.max Ceram completes the all-ceramic system. This material is used to veneer all IPS e.max components, no matter if they are glass-ceramic or zirconium oxide.
Case Presentation: A Quick Solution for the Best Long-Term Temporary Possible
CASE PRESENTATION A Quick Solution for the Best Long-Term Temporary Possible The patient presented to my office with a painful tooth No. 4 (Figures 1 and 2). On further examination, I was able to determine that the tooth/crown complex on No. 4 was mobile. We booked the patient an appointment for a 1-hour exploratory procedure to remove the composite crown that was on the tooth and to determine what needed to be done. When the patient came back in for her appointment, I removed the composite crown and examined the tooth. The post...Read More

Ivoclar Vivadent Introduces IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi for CEREC
New zirconia oxide block features natural shade and translucency progression May 2019 Ivoclar Vivadent announces the availability of the new IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi block. Featuring a gradual progression of shade and translucency from dentin to incisal, the zirconium oxide blocks are designed for producing highly esthetic full-contour crowns and three-unit bridges using CEREC and inLab systems. Inherently Esthetic Characteristics IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi blocks are composed of a combination of two different materials: medium translucency (MT) 4Y-TZP zirconium oxide and highly translucent (HT)...Read More
