IPS e.max ZirCAD
Ivoclar Vivadent’s IPS e.max ZirCAD is a high-strength zirconia material used for the fabrication of substructures for a wide variety of restorative types and is ideal for posterior and long-span bridge work. Only the highest-quality yttrium-stabilized zirconium oxide is utilized in the production of the IPS e.max ZirCAD blocks. To compliment the zirconia, Ivoclar Vivadent offers the choice of hand layering with IPS e.max Ceram or pressing over the structure with IPS e.max ZirPress to achieve the final result. IPS e.max ZirCAD is available in nine sizes ranging from C13 for single units to B85L for long-span bridges and comes in three pre-color shades to create optimum esthetics.
