IPS Empress Direct offers the aesthetics of a ceramic combined with the convenience of a composite – due to a wide range of shades, various levels of translucency and good processing properties.
The light-curing nano-hybrid composite IPS Empress Direct is based on the latest composite technology and was developed in cooperation with researchers, dental professionals and colour specialists.
Due to the lifelike shades and opacities, natural looking and aesthetic results can be achieved for all indications.
The properties of IPS Empress Direct are shown to full advantage in demanding anterior
restorations in particular. The wide range of 35 dentin and enamel shades in five levels of
translucency allow teeth to be faithfully reconstructed. Two high-end shade guides ensure
that the quality of the shade selection, as the starting point of every highly aesthetic
restorative procedure, is consistent.
IPS Empress Direct offers high stability, shade fidelity and excellent modelling and
polishing properties. The material’s handling is also exceptional: As the natural dentin is
simply replaced by Dentin material and the enamel by Enamel material, there is no need
for a “recipe”. Even the physical properties meet the highest demands, such as an
optimum radiopacity and a low sensitivity to light. As a result of the low light sensitivity,
enough time is available to design the restorations without pressure.
Proven system with new options
For nearly 20 years, IPS Empress has been synonymous with all-ceramics and high
exceptional aesthetics for the reconstruction of dental defects. With the introduction of IPS Empress Direct, the aesthetics of the ceramic are now combined with the convenience of a composite.
