First-ever polychromatic ingot for the press technique

Schaan, Liechtenstein – 1 October 2014

An innovative, new ingot now allows highly esthetic restorations showing a lifelike shade progression to be fabricated in a single press sequence.

IPS e.max Press Multi is the first polychromatic ingot available for the press technique. It is suitable for the fabrication of monolithic anterior and posterior crowns and veneers that show a natural-looking shade gradient from the dentin region to the incisal areas. This ingot eliminates time-consuming layering procedures. Therefore, it meets the exacting demands of both esthetics and efficiency.

The polychromatic restorations are fabricated using an advanced processing technique, which has been patented by the manufacturer Ivoclar Vivadent. The restorations are efficiently pressed and glazed with new accessory components and the intuitively operated EP 3010 and EP 5010 press furnaces. If desired, the restorations can be characterized / glazed with the coordinated IPS e.max Ceram materials.

The new Multi ingot, like the uniformly-coloured IPS e.max Press ingots, is composed of clinically proven lithium disilicate glass-ceramic, which exhibits a flexural strength of
400 MPa.

The IPS e.max Press Multi ingot is available in one size and in nine popular A–D shades and in one Bleach shade. The ingots are available as of October 2014.
