IPS e.max press is indicated for full anterior or posterior crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays,as well as three-unit bridges having only one pontic with the second bicuspid as the most distal abutment.
Bridges which include molars, Maryland style bridges and bridges which have a short vertical height that does not allow for adequate connector height.
Anterior full-coverage crowns require a chamfer or shoulder margin. A circular shoulder is prepared with rounded inner edges or a chamfer at an angle of 10-30°: the width of the shoulder/chamfer is approx. 1 mm. Facial reduction is 1.5 – 2 mm; 1 – 1.5 mm lingual contact clearance. Incisal reduction is 1.5 – 2 mm with rounded internal line angles, and an incisal edge at least 1mm wide to permit optimum milling of the incisal edge during CAD/CAM processing.
Posterior full-coverage crown requires a chamfer or shoulder margin. A circular shoulder is prepared with rounded inner edges or a chamfer at an angle of 10-30°: the width of the shoulder/chamfer is approx. 1 mm. Occlusal reduction is 1.5 – 2 mm: axial reduction (buccal, lingual and interproximal) is 1.5 mm with rounded internal line angles.
IPS e.max layered – can be either cemented using a resin reinforced glass ionimer such as Relyx Luting cement. Or bonded using a resin cement, when extra strength is needed due to lack of retention on the prep, use a resin cement such as Relyx Unicem or Relyx Ultimate.
