IPS Empress CAD blocks

Ivoclar Vivadent® Inc.

IPS Empress CAD is a leucite-reinforced glass-ceramic block for the CAD/CAM technology.

The IPS Empress CAD blocks combine the modern CAD/CAM processing technology with a high-performance all-ceramic material. With its homogeneity and light scattering behaviour, IPS Empress CAD provides a balanced chameleon effect. In addition to the light optical properties, the ceramic blocks are distinguished for their flexural strength of 160 MPa. IPS Empress CAD restorations enthuse users with their true-to-nature translucency and convincing esthetics.

IPS Empress CAD blocks are available in different translucency levels and as polychromatic multi-blocks. They are supplied in A-D shades, Chromascop and modern light Bleach shades.

HT Blocks
The IPS Empress CAD HT blocks with high translucency are mainly used for the milling of smaller restorations (e.g. inlays), due to their lifelike chameleon effect.

LT Blocks
Thanks to their chroma and brightness value, the blocks with lower translucency (LT) are ideally suitable for the fabrication of larger restorations (e.g. partial crowns, crowns).

Multi Blocks
The polychromatic IPS Empress CAD Multi blocks are the highlight of the IPS Empress CAD range of products. Given their true-to-nature shade and fluorescence transition between the dentin and the incisal areas, they provide restorations with a maximum of esthetics and lifelike appearance even without characterization.

Advantages
Highly esthetic CAD/CAM-fabricated restorations
3 different blocks for every patient situation
Choice of true-to-nature chameleon effect, lifelike brightness value, or natural shade gradient
Flexural strength of 160 MPa

Indications
Single-tooth restorations (veneers, inlays, onlays, anterior and posterior crowns)
