Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns look like natural teeth and are stronger than ceramic crowns. PFM crowns can be matched to your natural teeth so they provide an attractive appearance. However, the porcelain portion can be chipped off and the underlying metal can peer through as a dark line. Stronger than all-porcelain crowns, PFM crowns also wear down, and can show more of the dark line as the gum recedes.
Esthetic: Porcelain fused to metal crowns remain one of dentistry's primary restorations of choice because, when properly constructed and seated, they are strong, reliable and esthetic. The porcelains used at our lab incorporate optical properties that parallel natural tooth structure resulting in superior esthetics.
Function: From single units to roundhouse bridges, porcelain fused to metal has the versatility for the job. Plus, the very fine leucite crystals in our porcelains result in a combination of high wear resistance and forgiveness to surrounding dentition. Our dedicated team of technicians use their skills in the blending of today materials to create highly esthetic, yet functional restorations.
The demand for aesthetic all-ceramic restorations is continuously increasing. Depending on the case at hand and the preoperative situation, you can provide your patients with individual restorations that exhibit impeccable aesthetics and the required high mechanical stability, since IPS e.max comprises highly aesthetic and high-strength materials for both the PRESS and CAD/CAM technique. The restorations are suitable for both adhesive and conventional cementation.
Highly aesthetic and high-strength all-ceramic materials can be combined
One layering ceramic for the IPS e.max system
Predictable shade results and similar clinical behavior even in different restorations veneered with IPS e.max Ceram
Lifelike aesthetics independent of the shade of the prepared tooth
Adhesive and conventional cementation
Reinforced glass-ceramics has been successfully used in all-ceramics in press technology for 15 years. Glass-ceramics can not only be just pressed but also milled by means of a state-of-the-art CAD/CAM technique.
IPS e.max Press are new highly aesthetic lithium disilicate glass-ceramic ingots with optimized homogeneity and high strength. They allow the fabrication of restorations with a high accuracy of fit. The strength of 400 MPa which has been unmatched to date by glass-ceramics enables conventional cementation.
