Step 8: IPS e.max CAD is lithium disilicate glass ceramic in a soft state that can be milled and, at this stage, exhibits an unusual bluish color. Upon receiving the restoration from the Straumann milling center, Rego carefully fit it on the model and cut back the blue material to create the room necessary for the incisal porcelain.
Step 9: Rego applied stains to the IPS e.max CAD framework before the crystallization process.
Step 7: He placed the abutment on the working model, fabricated a full-contour waxup, scanned it using the Straumann CAD/CAM Scanner and ordered a high-translucency IPS e.max CAD crown in shade B1 from the Straumann milling center.
Step 10: The IPS e.max CAD framework after crystallization; note the esthetic optical properties of the material.
