IPS Emax (Pressed)

Pressed IPS e.max restorations, like milled IPS e.max restorations take advantage of the industry leading properties of IPS e.max, however the pressing process increases its versatility with minimum widths and arguably better aesthetics in fine anterior work.

While a mill is limited by things such as where a bur can reach, the shape of burs, the milling strategy in the software, undercuts in the prep, and the ability of the burs to cut the material, a pressed IPS e.max restoration is essentially casted, meaning that all of those limiting factors no longer apply.

These pressed IPS e.max restorations, while more time intensive and thus a bit more expensive, can be a great option for anterior work, where there are fine margins and more aesthetic demand. These restorations can also be layered with ceramics seamlessly to provide a truly spectacular aesthetic result.

Common applications include

  • Anterior Crowns
  • Veneers
  • Inlays and Onlays
  • Partial crowns
