150 Million Restorations*

Patient expectations for indirect restorative solutions have increasingly escalated from outcomes that are metal-free and esthetic to those that also demonstrate longevity and durability. With myriad tooth-colored restorative materials from which to choose, dentists and laboratories often find it difficult to select a material that can meet each of these rigorous criteria. Critical to any decision is often a review of the peer-reviewed clinical data to support their restorative material choice. Today, few materials currently on the market have the range of data and research that exists for the IPS e.max family of materials, including IPS e.max Press, CAD, ZirCAD, ZirCAD Prime, and Ceram.

Recent research articles authored by Dr. Kenneth Malament, a prosthodontist from Boston, MA, offer extensive and detailed analysis on the restorative work he has placed throughout his career.  In more than a decade, Dr. Malament amassed statistics on 1000-plus patients with IPS e.max Lithium Disilicate complete and partial coverage restorations and found that, upon follow-up, these units exibited a 99.6% success rate. Dr. Malament's data calculations show an estimated risk of IPS e.max Lithium Disilicate failure at 0.2-0.3% per year. No other restorative material in his experience has produced such reliable results.
