1. I.P.S. EMPRESS + EMPRESS 2 METAL FREE RESTORATIONS
The highly innovative processing technology for non metal ceramic now offered by IPS EMPRESS is creating new potential for producing natural looking restorations. A. Wohlwend at the University of Zurich further developed the idea of moulding heated ceramic to reproduce accurate ceramic copies of wax originals.
The ceramic is based on glass that contains latent nucleating agents.
In a process comprising several stages, controlled crystallisation is used to produce leucite crystals, measuring a few microns, in the glass matrix.
In the IPS EMPRESS system, the restoration with all its functional specifications is modelled in wax. Once the wax restoration has been invested and burned out, the heated, softened ceramic is pressed into the mould.
For perfect integration into the natural environment.
For restorations to blend with natural teeth.
For accurately fitting restorations with optimum marginal seal.
For long lasting restorations on which patients can reply.
For avoiding gingival trauma
