When it comes to material selection for dental crowns and bridges, you can choose from several options. At the same time, there are multiple factors that might impact your decision to pick one material over another for your patients’ dental restorations.
At Trident Dental Laboratories, we offer IPS e.max™ lithium disilicate crowns for dentists who are looking for something that is one-size-fits-all and can be prescribed anywhere in the mouth.
Why Choose IPS e.max™ Lithium Disilicate Crowns
IPS e.max™ restorations are the perfect solution for both posterior and anterior cases when you need function and aesthetics to be at their best. Made from lithium disilicate glass ceramic, this material is extremely translucent and provides the flexural strength of 360+ MPa. IPS e.max™ is the strongest, most resilient monolithic lithium disilicate material in the market today and is nearly incapable of cracking or chipping. When you choose an IPS e.max™ crown, you get the following characteristics:
- Stunning non-metallic restoration
- Extremely natural-looking and translucent
- Super biocompatible
- Easy to adjust
- Best replacement for Maryland Bridges
- Cementation: can be bonded or cemented
- Indications: veneers, crowns, onlays, and inlays
A More Robust Solution Than Porcelain-Fused-To-Metal (PFM) Restorations
Lithium disilicate crowns are highly advanced restorations that have revolutionized the way dentists across the world restore a complete set of teeth. And yet, many general dentists continue to rely on outdated and conventional materials, such as PFM restorations. Several studies have established that lithium disilicate-based restorations perform better than some other all-ceramic ones due to their improved biocompatibility, strength, and marginal integrity.
Based on the experience of dental professionals across the world, IPS e.max provides precision marginal accuracy and exceptional aesthetics in both pressed and CAD-milled applications.
IPS e.max has enamel-like translucency and tooth-like opalescence and fluorescence. Its lithium disilicate-based frame is indicated for sole posterior/anterior crowns, and tough enough for anterior three-unit bridges. These crowns can be bonded with resin cements or cemented with low-expanding resin-modified glass ionomer cements.
Key Features of IPS e.max
- Available as layered or monolithic restorations.
- Perfect for cosmetic cases since it mimics natural enamel even in monolithic applications.
- Low thermal conductivity offers enhanced comfort for the patient.
- No risk of tissue irritation or allergic reaction.
