IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime

IPS e.max® ZirCAD Prime is a latest offering under the IPS e.max system which combines maximum strength and high-end aesthetics in one solution.


  • Covers a wide array of indications ranging from single tooth crowns to 14-unit bridges. Furthermore, the material can be applied in very thin layers on minimally prepared tooth structure.
  • Utilises Gradient Technology (GT) which offers a seamless progression of shade and translucency to provide premium aesthetics. This removes a key disadvantage of multi-layered materials which result in visible layers of colour.
  • Maximum flexural strength of 1200 MPa at the dentine zone graduating to 650 MPa at the incisal zone.
  • Compatible with glaze, stain and glaze, cut-back, layering and infiltration finishing techniques.


  • The high-strength zirconium oxide raw material 3Y-TZP and the highly translucent zirconium oxide raw material 5Y-TZP are combined in a unique way giving this material its exceptional properties.
  • Both anterior and posterior restorative solutions are possible with predictable results.
  • IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime restorations can be cemented adhesively, self-adhesively, or conventionally.
