Natural-looking restorations created even more effortlessly
Ivoclar Vivadent’s clinically proven composite, IPS Empress Direct, now offers an intuitive application method with a wide selection
of shades. The material can be easily and evenly distributed with the Cavifil Injector and precisely contoured to the desired shape due
its exceptionally low stickiness. It’s handling characteristics have also been further enhanced, contributing to the materials
excellent adaption skills and the composites overall clinical reliability.
Whilst highly aesthetic restorations may pose a challenge to even the most experienced clinician, the new IPS Empress Direct System Kit provides dentists with the essential materials required to produce such demanding restorations. Award winning cosmetic dentist, Dr Rhodri Thomas, is an avid user and supporter of the aesthetic filling material; "I have found Empress Direct to be both the easiest composite system to handle and by far the easiest to polish with long lasting results” Rhodri said, “While these are both two great things to look for in a composite material, what sets empress apart from the rest is also the way it can truly mimic nature like no other when layered correctly. When you look at both the scientific evidence and the clinical results, Empress Direct is the clear winner for me.”
Aesthetic design with method
Comprising the most popular basic enamel and dentin shades, the IPS Empress Direct System Kit contains the IPS Empress Direct Effect Trans Opal shade for creating special characteristics in anterior teeth. The Trans Opal shade contains special micro-opal fillers, capable of closely reproducing the subtle colour and light typically seen in the natural opalescence of teeth. Furthermore, the kit contains translucent shade, Trans 30, recommended for emphasising special effects in the incisal edge. With IPS Empress Direct Opaque, material for any severe stains which need to be covered first and charts containing indication-related material now complement the offering.
The composite is based on the A-D shade system, which allows users to work creatively from the first moment without having to learn a new shade system. The selection of 32 shades and five levels of translucency ensure a high level of flexibility in the creation of natural-looking restorations. Commenting on Empress Direct’s shade system, Rhodri said; "It is ideal for both simple and complex layering cases. The range of shades allow us to be truly creative and the final polish means reliable results can be repeated over and over again."
