IPS Empress Crown and Bridge


An IPS Empress is also a type of all-ceramic restoration. The IPS Empress system is a highly esthetic hot pressed glass ceramic material for fabrication of single crowns.

The IPS Empress crown is an ideal solution in correcting the following dental problems: 

  • Teeth those are stained or discolored
  • Teeth those are broken or fractured
  • Teeth that have undergone root canal procedure
  • Teeth that are crooked

Advantages Of IPS Empress Metal Free All Ceramic Crowns

  • All-ceramics are commonly placed in those situations where the aesthetics are of utmost concern in front teeth. All-ceramic or all-porcelain dental crowns provide better natural color match than any other crown type. Furthermore, shade matching is much easier with porcelain, so you won’t have to worry about the crown matching the rest of your teeth.
  • The single biggest advantage of all-ceramics, as compared to PFM, is their more lifelike appearance.
  • Additionally, the elimination of the metal core allows for light transmission through the porcelain for better optical, life-like properties and a higher level of esthetic. As described in PFM, dark line of metal is never a concern in all-ceramic crown, either initially or if gum recession occurs later on.
  • In order to make restorations like dental crowns, we need to remove small amounts of tooth structure. Thanks to technological advances in porcelain manufacturing and adhesion, we can save more tooth structure as compared to PFM restoration.  Even though less cutting is done, it won’t affect its ability to fit snuggly on top of your existing tooth.
  • Some patients reject the metal used in restorations because they have an allergic reaction. This would cause the gums and sockets to become irritated and even inflamed, so by using metal-free restorations we can avoid this allergic reaction.
