Zirconia Oxide Block Features Natural Shade and Translucency Progression

Richard Gawel


Ivoclar Vivadent’s IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi block features a gradual progression of shade and translucency from dentin to incisal. The zirconium oxide blocks are designed for producing highly aesthetic, full-contour crowns and three-unit bridges using CEREC and inLab systems. 

IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi blocks comprise medium translucency (MT) 4Y-TZP zirconium oxide and highly translucent (HT) 5Y-TZP zirconium oxide. They also consist of three zones: 60% dentin, 20% transition, and 20% incisal. As a result, restorations milled from IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi blocks exhibit the high levels of brightness in the dentin area and translucency in the incisal area that are characteristic of natural dentition, the company says.  

IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi blocks are available in sizes C17 and B45, in seven A-D shades, and in one bleach shade. IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi blocks enable CEREC and inLab users to efficiently produce conservative and durable restorations of minimal thickness using either wet or dry milling, according to Ivoclar Vivadent.
