Lithium Disilicate

IPS e.max

IPS e.max offers a combination of exceptional aesthetics, versatility and strength. IPS e-Max has become the material of choice for many dental practices. The material is highly translucent and can be used for crowns, bridges, inlays and onlays and veneers. The lithium disilicate material is etched and bonded resulting in a far more durable restoration. The material can be pressed or milled to full contour (monolithic) or layered with ceramic for highly aesthetic cases.


Radiance is our new lithium disilicate imported from South Korea. Radiance has a strength of 500 mpa and offers a budget alternative to IPS e.max. Radiance is avaliable as monolithic or aesthetically layered.


Both IPS e.max and Radiance can be used for single unit crowns and three unit anterior bridges.


It is extremely important to supply a stump shade when using lithium disilicate as the material is extremely translucent and will discolour if a darker stump shade is present. We can not guarantee an accurate final shade, if the stump shade is not supplied.
