The fluorapatite glass-ceramic ingots are indicated to press on IPS e.max ZirCAD and other ZrO2 frameworks with a CTE of 10.5 to 11.0. IPS e.max ZirPress facilitates the working procedures especially for long-span restorations due to the detailed esthetic ceramic reproduction of the wax-up.
IPS e.max ZirPress ingots are available in three levels of opacity and in A-D and four Bleach BL shades. Moreover, two Gingiva shades are available - These ingots facilitate the fabrication of the gingival portion of the restoration, especially in large (implant-retained) restorations, since the material does not shrink and the number of ceramic firings can be reduced.
Several ingots can be pressed in the IPS Investment Ring System together. Individual characterization or veneering is carried out using the IPS e.max Ceram Stains or layering materials.
Advantages include Quick, easy and efficient processing, Four processing techniques - depending on the preference, Ceramic shoulders with high accuracy of fit and firing stability, and Innovative gingiva technique for implant superstructures
