Empress

The IPS Empress System is continuously being further developed to keep abreast of the latest trends. As a consequence, decisive enhancements have been made with regard to its aesthetics and function and its processing properties. With more than 33 million restorations fabricated with the leucite glass-ceramic throughout the world, the system has gained a reputation for producing long-lasting, natural-looking results and maintaining high quality standards.

IPS Empress Esthetic is available for the PRESS technology. The product consists of the highly aesthetic, leucite-reinforced glass-ceramic that has been clinically tried-and-tested for many years, and is characterized by excellent strength values and outstanding aesthetic appearance. It may thus be used for the fabrication of fully anatomic single-unit restorations, such as inlays, onlays, veneers, and crowns.

Leucite-reinforced glass-ceramic



The new IPS Empress Esthetic Line has been further enhanced with an extremely homogeneous leucite glass-ceramic, which features natural light scattering and offers a balanced chameleon effect. Due to an increased density and homogeneity of the crystals, the restorations blend beautifully into the natural surroundings. Moreover, the flexural strength of the ingots has been improved from 138 MPa to 160 MPa.
