IPS e.max Dental Restorations A strong, durable, natural-looking smile When it comes to enhancing the health and functionality of your natural teeth, dental veneers, crowns, inlays, onlays and bridges are important restorations. A bright, sparkling smile can be an enormous confidence-booster and have a remarkable effect on a person’s appearance. IPS e.max is devoted to creating natural-looking restorations as one of the world leaders in dental ceramics. IPS e.max veneers, crowns, onlays, overlays and dental bridges are distinguished and renowned for their durability, strength and exceptional optical properties. IPS e.max restorations, offered by cosmetic dentist, Dr. Khullar, are completely metal-free and are created and built from inorganic material which is baked and cured at high temperatures. Why should I choose IPS e.max restorations? IPS e.max is always enhancing and refining their restorations to make sure they look natural and reinstate complete functionality to the teeth. Traditional ceramic restorations were known for being brittle and expensive to repair after sustaining damage. IPS e.max however, has developed a heat-pressed glass ceramic that is immeasurably durable and strong. Several reasons contribute to this including the high shrinkage of leucite crystals. This shrinkage means that compressive stress is created during the vitreous stage, therefore it prevents cracking and breakage. The exceptional veneer stain and glaze also increases strength by as much as 50%. These elements combined create a thicker restoration that resistant to fracture. IPS e.max crowns, offered by Dentalways, have a 100% chance of surviving the first three years, meaning less dental visits, less expense and a sensational, comfortable smile. ADVANTAGES OF IPS E.MAX RESTORATIONS Bio-compatible Do not affect other dentition Ease of application Excellent polishing properties Many levels of translucency available Metal-free Natural-looking Shades match the other teeth What restorations are performed using IPS e.max products? IPS e.max has created many natural-looking restorations, including: IPS E.MAX VENEERS - These veneers are wafer-thin ceramic and porcelain covers which permanently fit over natural teeth. IPS e.max veneers are perfect for covering stained and disfigured teeth. They are stain and bacteria-resistant, strong and can be created to match the natural tooth shade. IPS E.MAX CROWNS - These crowns are generally placed after root canal therapy or after the removal of tooth decay. IPS e.max crowns have been proven to last longer than many types of crowns and once again, can be matched exactly to the natural tooth shade. There is no visible ugly metal edge, just an amazing end result. IPS E.MAX INLAYS / ONLAYS - Traditional amalgam fillings are currently being replaced by inlays and onlays. Amalgam is unsightly and unhealthy for the body. IPS e.max ceramic inlays and overlays are healthy and strong and usually invisible to onlookers. IPS E.MAX BRIDGES - As with all IPS e.max products, IPS e.max bridges are a completely natural-looking way to replace missing teeth. Metal bridges are often highly visible and make the teeth look shorter. IPS e.max bridges are almost impossible to spot while restoring symmetry and sparkle to the smile. You save time and money Because of their sheer strength and durability, IPS e.max dental restorations are less resistant to fracture and break. The crowns, specifically, are guaranteed to last 100% for at least the first 3 years. This means you spend less time in the dental chair which equates to less money spent. And the end result?
