Irvine Dentist Lava/ Empress


The esthetics and biocompatibility of 3M ESPE's Lava restorations represent the optimum in all-ceramic systems. Lava restorations provide excellent esthetics with outstanding marginal fit and superior strength with a high fracture resistance. The Lava All-Ceramic System provides one of the most durable and esthetic all-ceramic restorations available. The Zirconia substructure does not distort when firing the veneering porcelain, unlike metal substructures. The translucent framework is available in 8 shades that provide beautifully natural esthetic results.

IPS Empress®

IPS Empress has remained one of the most popular all-ceramic systems for highly esthetic resin bonded crowns, veneers, inlays, and onlays. A proven ceramic alternative to metallic restorations, IPS Empress offers patient satisfaction with aesthetic, natural looking restorations, by the exclusive use of ceramic materials. The utilization of bonded ceramic restorative materials is intended to reestablish function, shape, contour, color (hue, value and chroma), natural light transmission and strength of natural dentition. The constant high quality of the ceramic ingots ensures the reproduction of the physical values of the restorations case after case.
