Only few brands have actually managed to revolutionize the dental market. IPS e.max is one of them. Now, Ivoclar Vivadent launches IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime, a material that is redefining all-ceramics.
Is there a materialthat features high-strength and high esthetics? A materialsuitable to faithfully reproduce the seamless progression of natural dentition? A materialwith a broad range of indication? Yes, there is a materialthat fulfils the requirements of state-of-the-art all-ceramic restorations: IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime from Ivoclar Vivadent.
Gradient Technology (GT) is the secret IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime is the top-class product of the IPS e.max portfolio – the successful and most-sold all-ceramic system in the world – and is based on an all-new type of manufacturing technique. The Gradient Technology (GT) is the heart of the new material, combining three innovative processing steps in one product. Ingenious powder conditioning of the zirconium oxideraw materials 3Y-TZP and 5Y-TZP, innovative filling technology and top-quality manufacturing allow for highly esthetic results to be achieved with outstanding accuracy of fit. The sintering times among other things have also been streamlined to, for example, 2 h 26 min for single crowns in the Programat S1 1600.
The highly esthetic “One-Disc Solution” Unlike the Multi zirconium oxide disc, the IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime disc is not built up with layers. A continuous, seamless progression of the shade and translucency and optimized translucent properties ensure high-end esthetics. The new disc is setting new benchmarks in the esthetic appearance of zirconium oxide, irrespective of whether the monolithic, cut-back or veneering technique is used. IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime covers a wide array of indications – ranging from single tooth crowns to 14-unit bridges. The material features a biaxial flexural strength of 1,200 MPa (dentin) and a fracture toughness of > 5 MPa · m1/2 (dentin). IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime is available in 16 A-D shades and 4 BL shades and is compatible with the IPS e.max system.
