Ivoclar Vivadent emax CAD
IPS e.max® CAD is a high-strength lithium disilicate glass-ceramic (LS2) for the CAD/CAM technique directly in the dental office (chairside) or the laboratory (labside).
The IPS e.max CAD blocks for chairside processing are available in 16 A-D and four modern Bleach BL shades. They are available in two levels of translucency and two sizes. There are also an even more opaque blocks for the fabrication of frameworks (layering technique) in the laboratory.
The IPS e.max CAD blocks with high translucency (HT) are used for the milling of minimally-invasive, fully anatomical restorations, such as inlays, onlays and veneers. For partial crowns and crowns, the less translucent (LT) blocks are used. The restorations are directly milled from the blue blocks. During a quick combined crystallization/glaze firing cycle, which supersedes polishing, the restorations acquire their high strength (360 MPa) and the desired esthetic properties (tooth shade, translucency, brightness).
The restorations can be additionally individualized using the Stain materials. Finally, the restorations are seated. As an alternative to being placed using the adhesive cementation technique, crowns may also be cemented self-adhesively or conventionally.
