2016 IPS e.max Smile Award winners

Awards and accolades

The winners of the IPS e.max Smile Awards 2016 were announced on the eve of the 3rd International Expert Symposium hosted by Ivoclar Vivadent in Madrid, Spain. The prize recognizes exceptional achievements and work done with IPS e.max.


Three finalist teams from three different regions of the world attended the awards ceremony. The excitement was palpable until the very end, since the invited teams only found out whether they had won bronze, silver or gold in their category at the prize-giving event.

A passion for dentistry

The judging panel was impressed by the high quality of the winning entries. All the projects showed exceptional creative flair. The dentists and dental technicians provided their patients with outstanding service. Panel member Dr Sidney Kina was particularly pleased with the commitment and motivation shown by the teams: "Each team gave its best to strike a perfect balance between form and function. I can feel a passion for dentistry in all the photos". His colleague, Oliver Brix, added that all the teams had earned the utmost respect and the highest acclaim for their work.

IPS e.max Smile Award

The IPS e.max Smile Award is a contest held worldwide to find the most aesthetic dental cases solved with the IPS e.max all-ceramic system. An independent panel of experts evaluates all the entries in terms of aesthetics, complexity and harmony and selects the winners. They will gain international recognition and their work will receive exposure at congresses and in professional journals.
