IPS Empress Restorations
The popular IPS Empress System is synonymous with utmost esthetics in the restoration of dental defects and continues to set decisive standards as regards esthetics, function and processing. More than 40 million IPS Empress restorations speak for the lasting lifelike appearance, the continuing success and the high quality standard. Since the introduction of IPS Empress CAD, the popular allceramic material may now additionally be processed in a modern fashion using the CAD/CAM technology. The IPS Empress glass-ceramic is an extremely homogeneous, leucite-based material that scatters light naturally and provides a balanced chameleon effect. It inspires users with its translucency and lifelike appearance. Since the IPS Empress Esthetic press-ceramic and the IPS Empress CAD machinable ceramic blocks are the same from a materials science point of view, both materials demonstrate excellent strength values of 160 MPa in addition to the light optical properties. The expressive all-ceramic single-tooth restorations such as veneers, inlays, onlays and crowns thus harmoniously blend in with their natural environment. Careful preparation determines the durability and accuracy of fit of the restorations, whereas minimally invasive preparation is gentle to the tooth structure.
