News from the IPS Empress Original System
The IPS Empress pressed ceramic system, which has been clinically proven for more than 15 years satisfies discerning users and patients all over the world. Twenty-five million placed restorations are testimony to the long-standing success of IPS Empress.
The Original System is continuously being developed, setting trends in the market with regard to aesthetics and function. The most recent innovation from the field of all-ceramics is called IPS Empress Esthetic. The material opens up a host of unexpected possibilities, particularly for veneers.
The new IPS Empress Esthetic Line offers heightened aesthetics, enhanced properties and cost effectiveness for the Staining Technique and partially layered veneers in your laboratory.
The ceramic is based on glass that contains latent nucleating agents.
In a process comprising several stages, controlled crystallisation is used to produce leucite crystals, measuring a few microns, in the glass matrix
The semi-finished product or leucite-reinforced ceramic powder is pressed into ingots and sintered. These ingots are the basic components from which dental technicians press restorations.
The constant high quality of the ceramic ingots ensures the accurate reproduction of the physical values of the restorations.
For perfect integration into the natural environment. For restorations to blend with natural teeth.
Excellent fit because of new thermoplastic processing
For accurately fitting restorations with optimum marginal seal.
Very strong crown, veneers, and inlays/onlays
