Same-Day Smile Design with IPS e.max®
If you’ve ever thought about improving your smile, but were ultimately discouraged by the thought of numerous lengthy dental procedures and painful recovery times, ask your dentist about same-day smile design with IPS e.max®. Developed by Ivoclar Vivadent®, e.max® is a ceramic restoration system that allows dentists to perform some of the most-requested dental procedures in just one visit! That’s right, with same-day smile design, our patients leave the office with a new, radiant smile after a single appointment, with little-to-no recovery time!
IPS e.max® restorations are made entirely of ceramic—specifically lithium disilicate—and contain no metal. These restorations are incredibly natural-looking, mimicking the appearance of a patient’s existing teeth more closely than any other material. Because the restorations are always created from a single piece of lithium disilicate, your dental team is able to more closely match the colour, consistency, and physical characteristics of the surrounding teeth.
E.max® restorations can be used to correct a wide variety of dental ailments, including:
- Discoloured or stained teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Older dental work
- Shape or form of teeth
- And many more!
These restorations are extremely durable, and with proper care and regular dental visits they can last for several years. Unlike with other restorations, there are nearly no restrictions to the kinds of food and beverages patients can consume with their new smile—the material is even highly resistant to stains! Simply avoid eating anything that you wouldn’t have eaten before, and you should have no issues.
