IPS Empress Esthetic

IPS Empress Esthetic leucite glass-ceramic is the restoration of choice for brilliant single-tooth restorations. It is fabricated via the press technique.

Since the early 90s, the press technology has stood for accurately fitting all-ceramic restorations and has enthused patients, dentists and dental technicians alike.

IPS Empress Esthetic

IPS Empress Esthetic is the material of choice when it comes to the fabrication of pressed, highly aesthetic single tooth restorations. In addition to the excellent strength values, the leucite glass-ceramic ingots are distinguished for their exceptional aesthetics. The homogeneous material scatters light naturally and provides a balanced chameleon effect.

With IPS Empress Esthetic combines accuracy of fit, efficiency and aesthetics.

IPS Empress Esthetic is available in a total of 7 degrees of translucency, distributed among 12 ingots. The slightly shaded TC ingots are available in 6 shades.

E T Ingots

Given their high translucency, E T ingots are used for the fabrication of smaller restorations, such as inlays or onlays. The ingots can be used for older patients with a strongly translucent, glassy residual dentition or for younger patients with a residual dentition of low opacity.

E O Ingots

The E O ingots with increased opacity are ideally suited for pressing crowns and veneers for patients with a residual dentition of medium to very high opacity and to match the restoration with bleached teeth.

E TC Ingots

The shaded E TC ingots are available in 6 shades. Given their chroma, they are particularly suitable for the cut-back technique, in which incisal materials are layered in the incisal and/or occlusal third after pressing.
