IPS e.max Press now also allows you to fabricate implant-supported hybrid restorations – by combining a titanium base (Ti base) with the lithium disilicate glass-ceramic (LS2) from Ivoclar Vivadent. This product is available in hybrid abutments and hybrid abutment crowns.
In addition to an optimum design of the emergence profile, the individually fabricated, tooth-coloured abutment features a long-lasting esthetic appearance, even in cases of gingiva recession. Given the fluorescence of the LS2 glass-ceramic in conjunction with individual characterizations, a lifelike appearance is achieved. The seating of hybrid abutments is facilitated as a result of their geometry, and excess cementation material can be easily removed.
Hybrid Abutment Crown
A hybrid abutment crown is an abutment and a monolithic crown in one. This is an efficient two-in-one solution, which is directly luted to a Ti base. LS2 glass-ceramics provide for strength, durability and efficiency, particularly in the posterior area. The hybrid abutment crown is screwed onto the implant in the oral cavity – in one piece. Thus, the bothersome task of excess cement removal is a thing of the past. Subsequently, the screw access channel is sealed with a composite material (e.g. Tetric EvoCeram). If required, access to the screw channel is possible at any time.
- Pressed hybrid abutment solutions from your laboratory
- High, lasting esthetics, also in cases of gingiva recession, thanks to tooth-coloured hybrid abutments
- Hybrid abutment crowns (two-in-one) for function, efficiency and access to the screw at any time
- Excellent bond strength between LS2 and the Ti base achieved with Multilink Hybrid Abutment
An optimum biocompatibility is decisive for a durable and successful material used in conjunction with abutments and implant-supported restorations. Numerous studies carried out over many years confirm the good biocompatibility of IPS e.max Press (LS2) glass-ceramic with the oral soft tissue.
