IPS e.Max Press

IPS e.Max Press

IPS e.Max Press are lithium disilicate glass-ceramic ingots for the press technique.

The innovative IPS e.Max Press lithium disilicate glass-ceramic (LS2) offers excellent fit, form and function combined with high strength of 470 MPa. The material is supplied in four levels of translucency and two sizes. The resulting restorations exhibit lifelike esthetics, independent of the shade of the preparations.

IPS e.Max Press is used to produce single-tooth restorations, bridges for the anterior and premolar region and implant superstructures. Minimally invasive inlays and onlays (1 mm) and thin veneers (0.3 mm) round out the indication range.

The two investment materials IPS PressVEST and IPS PressVEST Speed are available for processing IPS e.Max Press.

A wide selection of ingots is offered from which users can choose the one that suits their preferred processing technique (staining, cut-back or layering technique) and the case at hand (e.g. discoloured preparation). The restorations are characterized or veneered with matching staining materials or layering ceramic from the IPS e.Max Ceram assortment. The press material for the fabrication of full-contour restorations is available in 16 A-D and four Bleach BL shades. The materials for the layering technique are supplied in group shades.

Available ingots

HT ingots
The high translucency ingots (HT) are suitable for the fabrication of minimally invasive full-contour restorations, such as inlays, onlays and veneers. The restorations are characterized with staining materials.

LT ingots
Full-contour partial crowns and crowns are fabricated with the low translucency ingots (LT). In the anterior region in particular, the esthetic appearance of the restorations is maximized by employing the cut-back technique.

MO ingots
The medium opacity ingots (MO) are used to fabricate substructures for vital or slightly discolored teeth. They create an ideal basis for lifelike restorations completed with the layering technique.

HO ingots
In cases where the prepared tooth structure is discolored or titanium abutments are used, the HO ingots mask the dark background to achieve highly esthetic results.

Since I started using ziemek asthetic dental lab, I've reduced the time of my seating appointments considerably. I no longer have to spend time adjusting contacts or occlusion, as these cases drop right in. ~ Dr. Brian D. Valle DDS, Millersville, MD
