Ceramic IPS e.max®

IPS e.max® is a lithium disilicate ceramic designed for optimal esthetics and strength. Virtually perfect contact and occlusion can be achieved through advanced CADCAM processes. Its flexural strength and 300-400 MPa, make this a superior anterior and posterior restoration when zirconia and PFMs are not desired. Veneers, inlays and onlays disappear with minimal prepping and for a natural and esthetic appearance.

At Peterson Dental Laboratory, anterior units are layered for increased translucence at the incisal edge as a standard for esthetics unless noted in RX.
