Lifelike esthetics – efficiently pressed
Did you know that you can create highly esthetic restorations featuring a natural-looking transition of colour and translucency between the dentin and the incisal areas in a single press sequence? Read on to learn more about the polychromatic IPS e.max Press Multi ingot. It has been specifically developed for this purpose.
Press in multicolour, glaze and you’re done!
IPS e.max Press Multi is suitable for fabricating monolithic anterior and posterior dental crowns, hybrid abutment crowns and veneers. One press sequence is all it takes to produce restorations that show a high level of chroma in the incisal and dentin areas and an appropriate level of translucency in the incisal region. These polychromatic restorations are efficiently created in an innovative manufacturing process. They are pressed in our smart, user-friendly press furnaces, the Programat EP 3010 and EP 5010, and subsequently glazed. The need for time-consuming layering is eliminated. The appearance of the resulting restorations is exceptionally lifelike.
Due to their high accuracy of fit and flexural strength of 500 MPa*, IPS e.max crowns have been delivering impressive results in the posterior region in particular for many years. The lithium disilicate glass-ceramic allows you to reduce the layer thickness of the restoration if required in order to enable minimally invasive preparation (crown layer thickness of at least 1 millimetre). The polychromatic material allows you to produce the desired esthetic results with maximum efficiency in a single press sequence, followed by glazing.
IPS e.max Press is suitable for digital applications. The Digital Press Design – Press Multi software of the 3Shape system allows you to position and attach the press sprues automatically to the virtual IPS e.max Press Multi restorations. The wax structures are milled from the ProArt CAD Wax yellow discs in the PrograMill or printed using 3D printing technology (e.g. PrograPrint PR5, Ivoclar Vivadent). Subsequently, they are efficiently invested with IPS PressVest Premium. Finally, the restoration is pressed in the Programat press furnace.
If desired, the restorations can be characterized with the stains and glazes of the IPS Ivocolor system and/or with the IPS e.max Ceram layering ceramic.
