IPS Empress CAD
IPS Empress CAD is a leucite-reinforced glass-ceramic block for the CAD/CAM technology.
IPS Empress CAD is suitable for the fabrication of highly aesthetic monochromatic single-tooth restorations, such as veneers, inlays, onlays, anterior and posterior crowns. With its homogeneity and light scattering behavior, IPS Empress provides a balanced chameleon effect. In addition to the light-optical properties, IPS Empress CAD restorations are distinguished for their lifelike translucency, high aesthetics, and a flexural strength of 160 MPa.
The IPS Empress CAD HT blocks with high translucency are mainly used for the milling of smaller restorations (e.g. inlays), due to their lifelike chameleon effect.
Due to their chroma and brightness value, the blocks with lower translucency (LT) are ideally suitable for the fabrication of larger restorations (e.g. partial crowns, crowns).
The polychromatic IPS Empress CAD Multi blocks are the highlight of the IPS Empress CAD range of products. Given their true-to-nature shade and fluorescence transition between the dentin and the incisal areas, they provide restorations with a maximum of aesthetics and lifelike appearance even without characterisation.
IPS Empress CAD blocks can be milled in the Ivoclar Vivadent PrograMill One, the CEREC System (Sirona) and Planmeca FIT System (E4D Technologies).
