IPS e.max is a lithium disilicate glass ceramic that has optimized translucency, durability, and strength for full anatomical restorations.  It combines lifelike materials and fracture resistant properties. This material is the most esthetic, while still offering superior durability featuring 500 MPa of flexural strength. Due to use of new technology and optimized processing parameters, IPS e.max is more evolved than previously available lithium disilicate ceramics and has increased 2.5 to 3 times in strength than other glass ceramic options. It is an excellent choice of material for anterior esthetics or posterior function. Emax is great for single crowns, veneers, inlays/onlays, and specifically anterior cases. It is not recommended for bridges as they do not allow for adequate connector heights with this material.
