True Sophistication and Flexibility in Dental Science

As a wide-reaching and flexible restoration system, IPS e.max incorporates many good ideas. The system allows you to select the most suitable all-ceramic material, depending on the indication at hand and the required strength of the restoration.

Lithium disilicate (LS2) is used to fabricate restorations for single teeth in the anterior and posterior regions. The material exhibits exceptional esthetic properties.

The use of a single veneering ceramic offers decisive advantages, especially in combination work. All IPS e.max restorations demonstrate the same wear properties and appearance, regardless of the framework material used.

Lithium Disilicate – Esthetics, Versatility and Strength

The lithium disilicate ceramic (LS2) of the IPS e.max system deftly combines esthetics and strength. This is particularly true in single-tooth restorations, where it yields superior esthetic results, with a flexural strength that is 2.5x greater than other glass-ceramics.

Its indication spectrum ranges from thin veneers (0.3 mm) and minimally invasive inlays and onlays to partial crowns, full crowns and three-unit anterior bridges.


  • Lifelike shading for highly esthetic solutions
  • Long-lasting restorations due to high strength
  • Versatile use and wide range of indications
  • Adhesive, self-adhesive and conventional cementation

IPS e.max® Ceram – Natural Look and Vibrancy

The IPS e.max system features only one layering ceramic, regardless of chosen framework material or combinations. All IPS e.max frameworks are veneered with the highly esthetic IPS e.max Ceram layering ceramic to give restorations an individual character and natural-looking vibrancy.


  • One layering ceramic for lithium disilicate and zirconium oxide frameworks
  • Predictable shade results, surface gloss and consistent wear characteristics
  • Nano-fluorapatite for highly esthetic properties

Indications & Contraindications


IPS e.max® is an innovative all-ceramic system which covers the entire all-ceramic indication range – from thin veneers to long-span anterior bridges.


  • Very deep subgingival preparations
  • Patients with severely reduced residual dentition
  • Parafunctions, e.g. bruxism
  • Provisional insertion/trial wear period
  • Long-span posterior bridges

Tips & Resources

Flexible Cementation

IPS e.max restorations enjoy highly flexible cementation requirements. Crowns and bridges can be cemented according to adhesive, self-adhesive and conventional (while inlays and veneers are cemented adhesively, as usual.)

Depending on the indication, you may choose between adhesive, self-adhesive and conventional materials including:

  • Variolink® II / Variolink® Veneer – The dual-curing, highly esthetic luting composite Variolink II has provided excellent clinical results for more than 10 years. For the cementation of veneers, the light-curing Variolink Veneer is used, which permits a brightening or darkening of the ceramic restoration with its special shade concept.
  • Multilink® Automix – The universal, dual-curing luting composite offers a wide range of indications, generating a very strong and lasting bond. Used together with the Primer A/B, Multilink Automix seals the dentin and establishes a good marginal seal.
  • SpeedCEM – The self-adhesive, dual-curing luting composite is even easier to use than a conventional cement. At the same time, it offers the additional advantages of a composite, such as higher bond strength and translucency, as well as lower water solubility.
  • Vivaglass® CEM – The classical self-curing glass ionomer cement is suitable for the cementation of high-strength ceramic materials, such as IPS e.max, among others. It contains a particularly transparent glass filler for achieving esthetic results.
