Aesthetics

We seek inspiration in the study of natural tooth structure ‌

... as we strive to achieve an optimum balance between aesthetics and function.

Internal structures

IPS e.max Press features ideal translucent and light refraction properties, which allow natural tooth structure to be faithfully mimicked.

The uniform appearance and internal fit of IPS e.max ZirCAD restorations is more than acceptable. After having conducted the respective firing cycles, they exhibit exceptional durability.

The internal structures and margins of IPS e.max Press restorations show an excellent fit, both before and after firing. The fact that the degree of translucency and colour saturation can be individually adjusted simplifies integration of the restoration into the oral environment.

The IPS e.max Press MO (Medium Opacity) framework should account for 70-80% of the dentin layer to achieve the desired shade effect.

IPS e.max Press exhibits a translucency similar to that of dentin, where as IPS e.max ZirCAD is more opaque. This difference can come in very useful, depending on the shade of the prepared tooth.

When veneering zirconium oxide frameworks, it is of paramount importance to use shoulder materials or a shaded liner, as otherwise, a thin white line always remains visible in the gingival region.

The difference between a zirconium oxide framework coloured with a dentin shade and a non-shaded zirconium oxide framework becomes apparent after sintering.

Transparent ZirLiner was applied to the shaded framework in order to ensure that colour saturation was exclusively achieved by means of the shading agent. ZirLiner 2 was applied to the non-shaded zirconium oxide framework. Already at this stage, the two specimens exhibited a fairly similar shade.

In terms of translucency, no difference was detectable either. Colouring a framework with colouring liquids or applying a shaded ZirLiner does not have an influence on the translucency of a restoration.

The zirconium oxide framework is supposed to reproduce the dentin core. It does not feature a very high opacity.

We applied veneering material to the zirconium oxide base, covering just half of it (the IPS e.max Ceram materials Opal Effect 1, Opal Effect 2 and Mamelon salmon were used for this purpose).

Zirconium oxide frameworks are not fluorescent. Therefore, they should always be covered with a layer of fluorescent IPS e.max Ceram.

If we compare IPS e.max Ceram Dentin with natural tooth structure, we will see that it demonstrates fairly similar translucent and fluorescent characteristics.

IPS e.max Ceram

Only opalescent materials such as OE 1exhibit the same high light refraction as natural enamel. Regardless of the individual clinical situation (i.e. dark background - oral cavity) these materials are capable of appearing very translucent and very bright at the same time. A material with a normal translucency such as Transpa blue does not demonstrate the same brightness and is more strongly influenced by its surroundings.

Due to its opalescent effect, OE 1 is ideal for building up tooth edges. When comparing the incisal edge created with Transpa Neutral to one created with OE 1, we can see that the loss of brightness is more significant in conjunction with Transpa Neutral. If some opalescent OE 1 is applied to one side of the incisal edge, the material’s high degree of light refraction becomes more apparent.

Application of Impulse materials

The single central incisor poses the greatest restorative challenge for the dental technician. His/her freedom and creativity is limited by the fact that the adjacent tooth needs to be faithfully copied.

Layering

In the cervical region, a dentin material with higher chroma (A3.5) is applied.

For the dominating areas, a Dentin shade with less chroma (A2) is chosen.

The incisal and marginal edges are built up with the incisal shade indicated by the dentist. In this case we used TI2 Incisal material, which corresponds to shade A3.

Layering

In the cut-back area, Transpa blue was applied first. Then small amounts of salmon shaded Mamelon material were placed. This layer should not be too obtrusive.

The dominant areas were saturated with Cervical Transpa yellow, while OE 2 (or OE 3) was used to create bright spots.

Patient case 1

Two central incisors were restored with IPS e.max Press. If the prepared tooth demonstrates a favourable shade, a lithium disilicate MO ingot is the obvious material of choice.

Patient case 2

To mask an underlying dark tooth colour, IPS e.max Press MO 0 can be used as was done in this case. If the discoloration is more pronounced, the best solution will probably be to use an HO ingot.

When restoring canines, which are to be replaced by a pontic, a material with a particularly high strength is required. Therefore, we selected IPS e.max ZirCAD as the framework material in this case.

(Dr. Oriol Llena, Clinic Stoma, Barcelona, Spanien)

This patient presented with old restorations in the upper anterior region as well as in the lower jaw. Treatment was started with the restoration of the upper anterior region. Two porcelain veneers for the canines were created with IPS e.max Ceram and four crowns for the lateral and central incisors were fabricated using IPS e.max Press MO 1 ingots.

Patient case 5

(Dr. Sidney Kina, Mariga, Brasilien)

A young female patient presented to the office who wanted to have the aesthetics of her smile improved. First, a gingival recontouring procedure was employed to visually lengthen the anterior teeth. Subsequently, porcelain veneers were fabricated for teeth 31 through 32 using IPS e.max Press and IPS e.max Ceram. These restorations harmoniously blended into the oral environment and the patient was very pleased with the result.

These different views of the preoperative situation show that there was an imbalance in the length-to-width proportion of the anterior teeth.
