IPS e.max ZirPress

Glass-ceramic ingot for the PRESS-ON technique
IPS e.max ZirPress are fluorapatite glass-ceramic ingots to be pressed on IPS e.max ZirCAD frameworks.

This practical technique allows the efficient fabrication of zirconium oxide-reinforced crowns and multi-unit bridges.

IPS e.max ZirPress ideally combines the PRESS and CAD/CAM techniques, since the strength of zirconium oxide frameworks is optimally combined with the aesthetics and accuracy of fit of the press ceramic in the press-on technique.
The ingots are used to press onto both IPS e.max ZirCAD and other zirconium oxide frameworks in the CTE range of 10.5 - 11.0. The fluorapatite crystals contained in the ingots control the interplay of translucency, opacity and brightness. Therefore, the less translucent zirconium oxide frameworks are optimally masked.

IPS e.max ZirPress ingots are available in three levels of opacity and in the 9 most popular A?D shades, as well as in 4 Bleach BL shades. Two Gingiva shades have now been added to the range.

HT ingots
The new highly translucent ingots are used for the fully anatomical technique. If you would like to impart your restorations with a special touch, you can characterize them with IPS e.max Ceram Shades/Essence materials. You can even fabricate inlay-retained bridges in all-ceramics with ┬źnormal┬╗ effort using the IPS e.max ZirPress HT ingots.

LT ingots
The LT ingots (low translucency) are ideal for the cut-back technique. After pressing partially anatomical restorations on the frameworks, you can complete the incisal area individually as you wish using the IPS e.max Ceram materials. Consequently, you can additionally optimize the aesthetic appearance of your restorations.

MO ingots
The MO ingots (medium opacity) are used for pressing accurately fitting ceramic shoulders, bridge pontics and the cervical third before the restoration is completed with the IPS e.max Ceram layering material.

Gingiva ingots
The two Gingiva ingots are the latest "members? of the IPS e.max ZirPress family of products. Since the material does not shrink and helps to reduce the number of ceramic firing cycles, the ingots facilitate the fabrication of (large) gingival parts, particularly for (implant) restorations.

For processing IPS e.max Press and IPS e.max ZirPress, the IPS PressVEST and
IPS PressVEST Speed investment materials are available.
