IPS e.Max Crowns
- Full coverage crowns
- Pressable ceramic veneers
- e.Max crowns are not recommended for patients with bruxism or a hard bite.
- Preparation for e.Max is similar to full metal crowns.
- Preparation for e.Max is less aggressive than for zirconia or porcelain fused-to-metal crowns
- e.Max preserves the natural structure of the tooth.
There is a broad selection of ingot shades available for e.Max.
Delivery and Cementation
Cementation is achieved by both bonded (adhesive) and mechanical retention.
- e.Max crowns typically last 10 to 15 years before fracturing.
How to Take Impressions for e.Max Crowns
There are several different ways to take impressions for e.Max crowns. These are the best ways to do so in order of preference for our dental lab:
- Impression-free chairside scans for a total digital workflow
- The crown preparation, as well as surrounding hard and soft tissue, is scanned at chairside and transferred digitally to the dental lab.
- Hybrid technology
- Utilizes scannable impression materials and impression trays.
- Impressions and bite registration are individually scanned into STL files
- Images are later used to “print” 3D models in the dental lab
- Traditional polyvinyl siloxane impressions and bite registrations
- Stomadent Dental Laboratory is a certified provider of IPS e.Max products.
- We routinely undergo training in order to ensure that we are using e.Max as effectively and efficiently as possible.
