A full ceramic crown guarantees a maximum of aesthetics compared to your own tooth. This porcelain crown is hardly distinguishable from a natural tooth. The light transmission from the pressed ceramic crowns is excellent.
IPS e.max Press is an innovative glass-ceramic blank for press technology from Ivoclar Vivadent (Lichtenstein).
The possible applications are quite manageable due to the slightly more limited breaking strength: single crowns, veneers – not for crunchers, small bridges in the front area.
Advantages of dentures made of pressed ceramics:
- Biocompatibility, excellent light transmission
- The risk of spalling of small ceramic parts is minimal
