The IPS e.max concept comprises both the innovative lithium disilicate (LS2) ceramic material - particularly suitable for single-tooth restorations - and high-strength zirconium oxide material for large-span bridges. In complex restorative cases, the consistent layering protocol and the exact shade match are one of the major advantages of this ceramic system. This is enabled by the fact that only one layering ceramic is required for the entire system.

IPS e.max CAD blocks are suitable for the efficient fabrication of esthetic high-strength single-tooth restorations, such as veneers, inlays, partial crowns and crowns. In combination with IPS e.max ZirCAD (ZrO2), the innovative IPS e.max CAD-on technique now also permits the fabrication of up to 4-unit posterior bridges with outstanding overall strength.
The IPS e.max CAD lithium disilicate (LS2) glass-ceramic is processed in a "soft" intermediate state, in which the material demonstrates its characteristic and striking bluish colour. In this way, manual adjustments or a cut back can be quickly and efficiently carried out and the accuracy of fit can be checked.
This is followed by a simple and quick crystallization process (approx. 20 min), in which the material obtains its final strength of 360 MPa and the desired esthetic properties, such as tooth shade, translucency and brightness. IPS e.max CAD can be designed to full contour or used to fabricate frameworks (veneering with IPS e.max Ceram).
The HT blocks are available in 16 A-D and 4 Bleach BL shades and 2 sizes (I 12, C 14). Given their high translucency, these blocks are ideally suitable for the milling of smaller restorations (e.g. inlays, onlays). Restorations made of HT blocks convince users with their true-to-nature chameleon effect and the exceptional adaptation to the remaining tooth structure.
The LT blocks are available in 16 A-D and 4 Bleach BL shades and 2 sizes (I 12, C 14). Given their low translucency, they are particularly suitable for the fabrication of partial crowns and single crowns using the cut-back and also the staining technique. The lifelike esthetic appearance can be maximized with the final layering with IPS e.max Ceram Essence and Shade materials.
The MO blocks are available in 5 group shades (MO 0 - MO 4) and one size (C 14). Given their opacity, they are ideally suitable for the fabrication of frameworks on vital or slightly discoloured preparations. The anatomical shape is subsequently individually layered using IPS e.max Ceram.
The new Impulse blocks are available in three Value (Value 1, 2, 3) and two Opal shades (Opal 1, 2). These blocks are mainly used to fabricate thin veneers, veneers, partial and single crowns.

IPS Empress is a tried-and-tested all-ceramic system for highly esthetic single-tooth restorations.
IPS Empress CAD is the esthetic leucite-reinforced glass-ceramic for the efficient fabrication of highly esthetic, fully anatomical single-unit restorations including inlays, onlays, veneers, and anterior and posterior crowns. Processable in the laboratory in a multitude of ways, both by means of the press and the CAD/CAM technology.
Almost 20 years ago, the IPS Empress all-ceramic revolutionized the dental world with the introduction of the press technology and has remained a quality standard to this day. The popular leucite glass-ceramic impresses users with highly esthetic restorations and optimum shade match and continues to set decisive standards with regard to aesthetics, function and processing.
More than 40 million restorations speak for the lasting lifelike appearance, the continuing success and the high quality standard of IPS Empress.
