Zirconia Veneered

Lithium Disilicate Monolithic

A restoration is only as strong as the weakest link. In the case of veneered zirconia restorations, the weak link is the porcelain layered on top to give the Chipping of layered restoration esthetic appeal. ceramic on zirconia Independent research has now shown that monolithic lithium disilicate restorations have eliminated this challenge. IPS e.max lithium disilicate is all you need for high-strength, high-esthetic restorations.

An independent study* evaluated the durability of lithium disilicate as it compares to layered zirconia supported restorations by means of a mouth motion cyclic fatigue test. This test is able to simulate the forces exerted in the mouth to assess how ceramic materials hold up to the forces of chewing.

Never before has a material been able to combine high strength, high esthetics and ease of use into one product, until now. IPS e.max lithium disilicate restorations exhibit superior durability featuring 360-400 MPa of flexural strength. What’s more, when the lithium disilicate is fabricated to full-contour, the monolithic structure is the most robust ceramic system tested to date.*

Lithium disilicate is comprised of a unique crystalline structure which gives the material its strength and uncompromised esthetics. The opalescence, translucency and light diffusion properties of lithium disilicate were all designed to replicate natural tooth structure for beautiful and undetectable restorations. Not only does the strength of lithium disilicate make it durable in the mouth, but it also offers options for cementation. Restorations with a retentive preparation form can be conveniently cemented with conventional cement.
