IPS Empress® Esthetic

IPS-EMPRESS-HEADER-IMAGEIn many cases, an all-ceramic restoration that is stronger than stacked porcelain is needed to achieve the ideal esthetic result. IPS Empress Esthetic remains the ultimate leucite reinforced pressed glass ceramic, featuring a broader range of ingot shades and layering porcelains. It continues to be the ultimate benchmark for highly esthetic pressed porcelain veneers, inlays/onlays and single tooth replacements (bicuspid forward).
