e.max® Crown Layered

The versatility of IPS e.max® is perhaps one of its greatest features, as these highly esthetic restorations can be monolithic or layered. While monolithic restorations afford superior strength, chip resistance and an overall balanced product, layered e.max® crowns deliver optimal, predictable esthetics and are therefore often preferred for anterior areas.

The frameworks fit great! We haven’t had any issues seating them. Our other lab took over a month to get them back to us, so we are very happy with your lab time.Dr. Willis
Just wanted to show you the finished case. Very smooth running case. Patient loved his smile. He brought me pictures of Brad Pitt as an example of the teeth he wanted! Brad would have been proud. Great job!Dr. Britton

e.max® Crown Shaded

Our ability to achieve your desired shade is further enhanced with our shading techniques for IPS e.max® crowns. Drake’s process for determining the shade of these custom restorations incorporates the shade of the prepped tooth structure (in congruence with the IPS Natural Die Material shade guide), the restoration material and the cement/bonding agent. Our custom shade options and ability to match surrounding dentition are unequivocal with e.max® shaded crowns, offering your patients the high end esthetic smile they seek.

e.max® Veneer Layered

Each IPS e.max® restoration is veneered with the same ceramic component, giving a heightened uniformity in wear and glossy smoothness unachieved by other systems. With our e.max® veneer restorations, you can give your patients maximum esthetic results, integrating choice shading and inflection comparable to natural tooth surface.

e.max® Veneer Shaded

The shading selection for IPS e.max® veneers is varied, as are translucency options for these popular cosmetic restorations. E.max® veneers deliver maximum strength and natural appearance when compared to other veneer options. With the assistance of the IPS Natural Die Material shade guide, E.max® veneer shade is selected based on the color of the prepped tooth, which then helps determine shading for the veneer material and the cement or bonding agent used for affixation.
