Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a candidate for IPS Empress pressed ceramic restorations?
You may be a candidate for a pressed ceramic restoration from IPS Empress if you are in search of a metal-free crown, inlay, onlay or veneer that will offer aesthetic appeal without sacrificing durability and functionality. All-ceramic IPS Empress restorations are stronger than porcelain and moderately opaque, making it possible to alter the exterior shade of a tooth. Schedule a consultation with your dentist to determine whether an IPS Empress restoration is right for you.
What should I expect when being fit for an IPS Empress restoration?
The process of being fit for an IPS Empress restoration is very similar to being fit for any other restoration. Your dentist will prepare your tooth for the restoration and take an impression to send to a dental lab. The lab will fabricate your new IPS Empress restoration and send it back to your dentist for bonding.
Will I need to follow any special instructions to care for my new restoration?
Like any restoration, you’ll need to continue caring for your teeth by brushing and flossing on a daily basis. It is also important to continue visiting your dentist twice yearly for professional cleanings and examinations. With proper care, your IPS Empress restoration should be long-lasting, discreet and cosmetically appealing for years to come.
