IPS e.max Restoration
Discolored teeth are often the result of root canal treatment. Although porcelain fused to metal restorations can cover discolored tooth, the metal coping causes gray line along the margin too show up. This is because the metal coping does not allow light to pass through the tooth tissue.
Theses dark rims are eliminated in all porcelain restorations especially lithium disilicate ceramic restorations. IPS e.max lithium disilicate ceramics have both high strength and excellent esthetics. The translucency of this porcelain allows the light pass through the restoration to the tooth, thus gingival black margin (which is common among metal ceramic restorations) is avoided.
IPS e.max lithium disilicate results in life like esthetic results. The type of material used can be selected in an optimum degree of opacity and transluscency inline with the shade of the remaining tooth tissue. Lithium disilicate ceramics offers convenient combination of press and layering materials.
