Increasingly, the spotlight continues to be focused on all-ceramic restorations. The challenge lies in offering the best possible solution that meets the requirements of the individual clinical situation and the esthetic expectations.

The tried-and-tested IPS Empress leucite glass-ceramic provided key impetus to esthetic dentistry in the nineties and it has never lost its importance. Now the innovative IPS e.max all-ceramic system incorporates several new types of materials: lithium disilicate, fluorapatite and zirconium oxide glass-ceramics. The lithium disilicate ceramics are suited for both the press technique and CAD/CAM applications. They are available in several degrees of translucency, providing a maximum level of esthetics – but not only that: Given their high strength (360-400 MPa), the IPS e.max lithium disilicate ceramics can be used for a broad range of indications.
