IPS Empress has evolved into the "gold standard" for both dental professionals and patients. The leucite-reinforced glass-ceramic provides high
esthetics and accuracy of fit.
The more than 33 million restorations having been fabricated to date speak for the durability and the high quality standard of IPS Empress. The IPS Empress
material is made of an extremely homogeneous leucite-based ceramic, which scatters light naturally and provides a well-balanced chameleon effect. The IPS
Empress System can also be directly processed chairside, for example using the CAD/CAM technology.
The press ceramic IPS Empress Esthetic and the new ceramic blocks IPS Empress CAD are based on the same material composition. The two products demonstrate
exceptional light-optical properties and strength values of 160 MPa. The highly esthetic all-ceramic single-tooth restorations, such as inlays, onlays,
crowns and veneers blend in seamlessly with the surrounding dentition.
