New level of brightness for pressed restorations

New Products

Ivoclar Vivadent extends the range of press ingots to include a new level of translucency. The new IPS e.max Press MT are monochromatic ingots of the medium translucency range. They consist of the tried-and-tested lithium disilicate glass-ceramic material and ensure clinical long-term success and flexibility during cementation.

The new monochromatic lithium disilicate (LS2) ingots belong to the medium translucency (MT) range and close the gap between the proven HT and LT ingots. The MT ingots are intended for restorations requiring a significantly higher brightness level than HT restorations. Given their reduced chroma, these ingots offer room for creativity to individualize the cervical region of restorations and achieve a natural-looking transition between dentin and enamel. The ingots are available in two sizes in selected Bleach BL and A-D shades. They are suitable for fabricating restorations using the staining or cut-back technique and are recommended for the following applications:

  • occlusal veneers (table tops),
  • thin veneers and veneers,
  • partial crowns and crowns, and
  • three-unit bridges (up to the second premolar as the terminal abutment).

Users will benefit from a high-strength material (400 MPa) that ensures clinical long-term success and affords them the possibility of using a conventional cementation technique to seat IPS e.max Press restorations, depending on the indication. Given the natural level of brightness, the material allows less translucent tooth areas to be faithfully reproduced and enables the restorations to optimally integrate into the existing natural dentition.

The new IPS e.max Press MT ingots replace the existing IPS e.max Press Impulse Value ingots. The IPS e.max Press Impulse Opal ingots are not affected by this change and will remain part of the range.
