IPS Empress

EMPRESS… THE STANDARD for HIGHLY ESTETHIC ALL-CERAMIC RESTORATIONS!

Artistic Dental Design, Inc. is a certified Ivoclar Empress lab!
Ivoclar supplies the materials – we fabricate the crowns and laminates – you watch your patients SMILE.
Ivoclar replaced Empress II with an improved material / system called IPS Empress Esthetic. This has improved color, clarity, and strength. Additionally, the Lucite reinforced Glass Ceramic crystal distribution has been enhanced. If you liked Empress, you’ll be impressed with the improvements that come with Empress Esthetic!

With this new IPS Empress Esthetic Veneer Material, we can create pressed and layered porcelain restorations that truly mimic the beauty of natural teeth and conserve valuable tooth structure.
They are available in 11 ingot shades. Two new shades have been added to satisfy the increasing demand for bleach shades.
Another improvement; a new Empress Esthetic Ingot Shade Guide has been developed to assist the clinician in determining the appropriate shade of ingot to prescribe.

If you would like more information, call us or email us. We can provide laminated prep-guides or cementation information, or answer any of your questions. Our job is to help you!
