SCHAAN, Liechtenstein: Few brands have actually revolutionised the dental market; IPS e.max is one of them. Now, Ivoclar Vivadent will be launching IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime, a highly aesthetic zirconia in a one-disc solution for dental laboratories that will redefine zirconia.

Is there a disc that features high strength and high aesthetics? A disc suitable for faithfully reproducing the seamless progression of natural dentition? A disc with a broad range of indications? Yes, now there is a disc that fulfils the requirements of state-of-the-art all-ceramic restorations: IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime from Ivoclar Vivadent.

Gradient Technology is the secret

IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime complements Ivoclar Vivadent’s current zirconia portfolio of the successful and most-sold all-ceramic system in the world and is based on an all-new manufacturing technique. Gradient Technology (GT) is the heart of the new material, combining three innovative processing steps in one product. Ingenious powder conditioning of the raw materials, 3Y-TZP and 5Y-TZP, and innovative filling technology and top-quality manufacturing allow for highly aesthetic results to be achieved with outstanding accuracy of fit. The sintering time, among other things, has also been streamlined to, for example, 2 hours and 26 minutes for single crowns in the Programat S1 1600.

A new era in zirconia technology

Unlike the Multi zirconia disc, the IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime disc is not built up with layers. A continuous, seamless progression of the shade and translucency and optimised translucent properties ensure high-end aesthetics. The new disc sets new benchmarks in the aesthetic appearance of zirconia, 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 possesses a biaxial flexural strength of 1,200 MPa (dentine) and a fracture toughness of > 5 MPa · m1/2 (dentine). IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime is available in 16 A–D shades and four BL shades and is compatible with the IPS e.max system.
