Finalists confirmed for Ivoclar Vivadent’s IPS e.max Smile Award

Competitions and promotions

The finalists for the IPS e.max Smile Award 2016 have been selected. Nine teams have every right to be excited to see who will emerge as winner for the best IPS e.max project.


For each of the three regions represented in the contest, the panel of experts have chosen three teams whose work they found particularly exciting. Hundreds of teams, each consisting of a dentist and dental technician, submitted their case presentations accompanied by written and photographic documentation. Now the panel only has to decide who will be awarded first, second and third place. The final results will be announced at the award ceremonies in Madrid/Spain. The ceremonies will take place on 10 June 2016, on the eve of Ivoclar Vivadent's 3rd International Expert Symposium.

Impressive standard of entries

The members of the panel were genuinely impressed with the quality of the work they received. "To choose the winners was rather difficult as all the cases showed beautiful parts and details," said Gonzalo Zubiri (Argentina). Oliver Brix (Germany) confirms: "It was fun and very interesting to see the different workflows and concepts behind the cases." Dr Jiang Shan (China) emphasises the inspiration involved in many cases: "Because creation begins from perfect imitation, being a member of the panel for the IPS e.max Smile Award was a great opportunity for me to get inspired for my own work, too."

IPS e.max Smile Award

The IPS e.max Smile Award is an international contest launched to find the best dental cases solved with the IPS e.max all-ceramic system. The panel of experts evaluated all projects submitted with regard to aesthetics, complexity and harmony and select the winners. The winners will receive worldwide attention: their works will be presented at professional events and in the dental media.
