FAQ: How can IPS e.max Press restorations be cemented?

IPS e.max Press restorations may be either adhesively, self adhesively or conventionally cemented.


conventional cementation

For conventional cementation, however, an appropriately retentive preparation design must be observed. If this is not possible, adhesive cementation, e.g. with Variolink II and Multilink Automix may be used.

For self-adhesive cementation Multilink Sprint is available. Multilink Sprint is easier to use than a conventional cement. At the same time, it offers the additional advantages of a luting composite. Ivoclar Vivadent advises against the use of traditional phosphate cements, since they negatively influence the light transmission through the all-ceramic and compromise the aesthetic appearance of the all-ceramic restorations.
