IPS e.max ZirCAD

IPS e.max ZirCAD involves a quick sintering process, which allows monolithic and esthetically pleasing zirconia restorations to be created directly in the dental practice using an efficient procedure. This makes this popular restorative material also suitable for chairside applications.

IPS e.max ZirCAD is known for its high flexural strength (1,200 MPa*) and fracture toughness. It allows the fabrication of restorations with considerably lower wall thicknesses (posterior crowns: minimum 0.6 mm; anterior crowns: minimum 0.4 mm). Preparations preserve tooth structure and restorations can be cemented conventionally.

Glazing is achieved with IPS e.max CAD Crystall./Glaze, which is available in two versions, one with fluorescent effect and one without.

Once sintered, the restorations
can either be:

  • glazed and fired
  • stained (optional), glazed and fired
  • polished


  • Crowns
  • Three-unit bridges


  • Chairside zirconia restorations allow practices to expand their portfolio of offerings
  • Pleasing esthetics combined with high strength
  • Tooth-preserving preparation and conventional cementation
  • No risk of chipping
  • Biocompatibility
