All-ceramics: Quality assurance for your patients
20 February 2019
Are you a dentist who does not tolerate any compromises in terms of the esthetics, quality and longevity of your dental restorations? Are you very particular about working only with high-quality, clinically proven materials? If so, you should let your patients know.
What type of material was used?
Certain materials are characterized by their exceptional longevity and reliability, which have been confirmed by numerous scientific studies. Nevertheless, a growing number of all-ceramic products on the market is making it increasingly difficult to establish what kind of materials were used to manufacture a restoration. By issuing a patient certificate, in other words, a certificate of authenticity, you have the possibility of assuring your patients of the high quality you have provided.
IPS e.max: clinically proven
The IPS e.max materials are clinically proven. They fulfil very high standards with regard to quality, innovation and function. The excellent performance of the all-ceramics has been confirmed by clinical experience gained over a period of 14 years. The materials have been used to produce 120 million restorations worldwide*. Scientific evidence shows that IPS e.max restorations have a survival rate of 96 per cent.
Patient certificate provides clarity
If you use IPS e.max in your dental practice you can take advantage of the new patient certificate to prove to your patients that you use only authentic materials. You will receive the patient certificate from your dental laboratory. It contains all the important details about the materials used as well as the type of restoration manufactured. All you have to do is add your practice stamp and hand the certificate to your patient. This simple yet effective measure allows you to assure your patient of the high quality of the dental restoration you have placed.
All dental practices that use IPS e.max will receive the mentioned certificates from Ivoclar Vivadent free of charge, which they can then pass on to their dental laboratory.
