IVOblog interviews Aesthetic and Restorative Dentist Dr Busi Mathibela on what she sees as the value of using e.max:
How long have you been using e.max and what is your opinion of it?
I’ve been using e.max for a little over 10 years. Prior to e.max I used Empress 1 and Empress 2. I was delighted when Ivoclar introduced e.max into the South African market and was one of the first to jump on the e.max bandwagon. It has been such a pleasure to use and I have not once regretted it!
When I think about the value of e.max, what immediately comes to mind is its elegance and simplicity. Also the perfect option that it offers to my patients, of attractive aesthetics, longevity and optimal functionality.
Patients want restorations that look and feel like they belong in their mouths. They want durability and quality of life, - restorations that are going to be kind to their biology – for the long term. e.max delivers on all counts.
What do you like most – the key reasons for you choosing e.max?
E.max is designed principally with the patient in mind but also focuses on what matters most to the dentist . I want a material that is MULTIPURPOSE, EASY TO USE, allows me to be MINIMALLY INVASIVE without sacrificing on strength, and obviously one that is enduring. e.max offers just that! I also want a material where even, should things go awry, (as they can do in dentistry) – such problems are easily manageable and fixable.
Over the years I have come to appreciate that with e.max, whether I am doing a single restoration or a full mouth reconstruction - there is always PREDICTABILITY for the patient, FLEXIBILITY for the technician - it also makes the dentist look good! It has proven to be exceptionally good VALUE FOR MONEY.
It also allows my technician to be creative with the DIFFERENT TRANSLUCENCIES that allow us to manage even the most complicated restorations, due to its wide spectrum of shade offerings.
What message would you like to share with other dentists?
To me, having e.max is akin to an orchestra that produces the most beautiful music. There are a lot of players, and each come together perfectly, because the excellent material produces excellent results. It is adaptable whether one is using it via analog or digitally –and this allows a seamless transition into the future of dentistry.
When I started with e.max my cases were mostly on anterior veneers. Through these I was able to build up the confidence to take on bigger and more challenging cases and it allowed me to prepare the most complicated wear cases and achieve aesthetics still being minimally invasive. Table tops with e.max have been an absolute game changer for my tooth wear cases.
Few things are as gratifying for a Dentist as additive dentistry that does not destroy a patient’s teeth but still achieves what I refer to as “mellifluous music” at the end. The combined result of all of these measures is that e.max has been a great self-marketing tool for my practice. It enjoys a well-deserved and well-tested high trust level with my patients. I have, over the years, counted myself as privileged to have been able to observe how e.max ages. I have been extremely impressed and highly pleased with how well it has fared in my patients’ mouths. There is that saying that quality is remembered long after price is forgotten – it definitely rings true for this material.
e.max = “resilience through innovative simplicity.”
