IPS e.max®

IPS e.max® is a lithium disilicate material fabricated into a monolithic all-ceramic restoration. Combining strength and esthetics, this is the most versatile all-ceramic restoration from Ragle. Our e.max® restorations are pressed at a minimum of 1.5.mm of thickness giving the restoration maximum flexural strength of 400 MPa. We are also able to press this material as thin as 0.3.mm thick for our no prep veneer cases. This material has multiple ranges of opacity to accommodate discolored preps without compromising esthetics. These restorations are available in our Cera-leux and Virtue lines to accommodate your patient specific needs.

Indications: Anterior Crowns, Posterior Crowns, Veneers, Thin Veneers (0.3.mm), Inlay/Onlay, Implant Restorations

Working Time: 5 Days In-lab

IPS Empress® Esthetic

IPS Empress® Esthetic is a leucite-based glass-ceramic that once fabricated by Ragle technicians becomes our most lifelike restoration. These restorations have the highest amount of translucency and natural chameleon effect with a flexural strength of 160 MPa. Our Empress restorations are pressed to full contour and are perfect for the anterior section of the mouth and veneers at 0.7.mm thick. These restorations are available in our Cera-Leux line only.

Indications: Anterior Crowns, Veneers, Inlay/Onlay

Imagine Anterior Zirconia

Imagine Anterior Zirconia is the next generation of solid zirconia materials. Fabricated in-house using Ragle’s state of the art CAD/CAM technology, this material achieves an unparalleled translucency through lowering the flexural strength from the 1200-1400 MPa high strength zirconia’s that opened this market. At 767 MPa Imagine™ is almost twice the strength of e.max® making for a great combination of virtually unbreakable strength and high-translucency esthetics. The material is suitable for bridges up to three units in length in the anterior or posterior regions. These restorations are conventionally cemented and available in our Virtue line only.

Indications: Anterior Crowns, Posterior Crowns, Anterior/Posterior Bridges up to 3 units, Inlay/Onlay, Implant Restorations

RCAD Full Zirconia

RCAD Full Zirconia is Ragle's in-house brand of zirconia. It's fabricated in our RCAD milling facility utilizing state of the art CAD/CAM technology. The RCAD Full Zirconia material has superior translucency to most zirconia's on the market. This is a strong alternative to a full cast crown and is great as a single shaded economical solution. These restorations are available in our Virtue line only.

Indications: Posterior Crowns, Posterior Bridges, Implant Restorations

Working Time: 5 Days In-lab

Lava PFZ

Our PFZ crown is porcelain fused to Lava™ Zirconia. This is a semi-translucent material good for blocking out stump colors but translucent enough to provide light pass-through for a lifelike appearance. This material is backed by proven strength and 13 years of clinical proof. The translucency and proprietary shading in this material prevents from the brightness of the zirconia showing through the porcelain as found with other zirconia restorations. The substructure material combined with Ragle’s ceramic expertise makes for a great anterior zirconia restoration. This is also a great conventionally cemented, all-ceramic solution where complete masking of the underlying tooth is needed.  These restorations are available in our Cera-leux and Virtue lines to accommodate your patient specific needs.

Indications: Anterior Crowns, Posterior Crowns, Long Span Bridges, Implant Restorations

Working Time: 6 Days In-lab

Lava Plus

Lava™ Plus is an all-zirconia material fabricated using state of the art CAD/CAM technology at Ragle, where Ragle is an Authorized Lava™ Milling Center. The Lava™ Plus material has the best esthetics and translucency out of all the high-strength zirconia’s Ragle has tested. It provides an excellent color match to the VITA® Classical Shade Guide and a direct conversion to the VITA 3D-Master® Shades. And as an all-zirconia restoration, the material is virtually unbreakable. It’s perfect for minimally invasive preparations due to needing three times less occlusal reduction than a porcelain crown. At Ragle, we also make sure we meet your diverse shading needs as this material is capable of individualization to match a polychromatic scheme. These restorations are available in our Virtue line only.

Indications: Posterior Crowns, Long Span Anterior/Posterior Bridges, Implant Restorations
