IPS e.max − one system for every indication
Dental patients of today are looking for more than just a IPS e.max allows you to offer your patients exceptionally healthy and functional restorative solution. Esthetics is beautiful restorations which also demonstrate high playing an increasingly important role in their choice of mechanical strength. You are bound to appreciate the dental restorations. As all-ceramics are both biocompatible wide range of possibilities that this innovative all-ceramic and esthetic, these materials are rapidly growing in system will open up to you.

The system The system comprises a single veneering ceramic, which allows you to select the most suitable all-ceramic material, offers decisive advantages in combination work (lithium depending on the indication at hand and the required disilicate and oxide ceramics).

The framework structure made of the partially sintered zirconium oxide ceramicin combination with a glass-ceramic (IPS e.max ZirPress) seems to have solved thestrength problem at last."

Therefore, your dentallaboratory can fabricate an indirect IPS e.max restorationfor the abutment, for example, using lithium disilicate.
Alternatively, you may choose to have the abutmentveneered or a ceramic material pressed directly onto it.
The Straumann Anatomic IPS e.max Abutment is a high-strength, anatomically shaped zirconium oxide abutmentthat exhibits exceptional fit. It is supplied in two shades:MO 0 and MO 1.
All your work will benefit from the smooth shade transi-tion between the abutment and the crown, which furtherenhances the esthetics of your IPS e.max restorations.
The abutment is available exclusively from Straumann.

The number of patients who are choosing implant-retainedrestorations over other dental solutions is growing rapidly.
IPS e.max offers you a host of possibilities for satisfying therequirements of these patients with all-ceramics. The newzirconium oxide abutment is suitable for the fabrication ofhighly esthetic implant-retained IPS e.max restorations. It iscoordinated with the IPS e.max system and the StraumannBone Level Implant (Regular CrossFit).
