Lithium disilicate glass-ceramic
The innovative IPS e.max Press lithium disilicate glass-ceramic (LS2) offers excellent fit, form and function combined with high strength of 400 MPa. The material is supplied in four levels of translucency and two sizes for maximum flexibility. The resulting restorations exhibit lifelike esthetics, independent of the shade of the preparations.

These new highly translucent (HT) ingots are suitable for the fabrication of minimally invasive full-contour restorations, such as inlays, onlays and veneers. The restorations are efficiently customized with staining or layering materials.
These ingots showing low translucency (LT) are used to fabricate full-contour partial and full crowns. In the anterior region in particular, the esthetic appearance of the restorations is maximized by employing the cut-back technique then layering porcelain to the e.max framework.
