IPS e.max and Lithium Disilicate

e.max restorations can help fix many issues, including discolored, crooked, chipped, cracked, and decayed teeth as well as older dental work utilizing metal. The all-ceramic dental crowns, veneers, bridges, and implants combine high esthetics and superior strength. They're natural-looking and contain no metal. The patented e.max material has more than 10 years of clinical evidence with a 98.2% success rate.


Ivoclar Vivadent’s lithium disilicate material is revolutionary for the dental industry! It combines high strength, high esthetics and ease of use into one product. It's a lithium disilicate glass ceramic that has optimized translucency, durability, and strength for full anatomical restorations and has evolved beyond previously available lithium disilicate ceramics. IPS e.max lithium disilicate restorations exhibit superior durability featuring 360-400 MPa of flexural strength. When fabricated to full-contour, the monolithic structure is the most robust ceramic system tested to date. The opalescence, translucency and light diffusion properties were all designed to replicate natural tooth structure for beauty and undetectable restorations.
