For almost 20 years the name of IPS Empress has been associated with the aesthetics of the best quality in the reproductions of the characteristics of the natural tooth. The system has gained its reputation due to its sustainable and natural results and to maintaining high quality standards. Over the years, the system has been continuously developed to keep up with the latest trends in the field. As a result, decisive improvements were made on the aesthetics and applicability of the system, but the processing properties were improved.
The system was expanded and optimized by introducing IPS Empress Esthetics pressed ceramics, to which IPS Empress CAD materials for CAD / CAM and IPS Empress Direct technology (combining ceramic aesthetics with composite advantages) were later added.
The portfolio expanded in 2009 with the inclusion of IPS Empress Direct Flow materials, the range consisting of three special, fluid shades, Effect. The range allows custom optical effects and obtaining anatomical features similar to the natural ones.
