General preparation information

  • * The preparation can be carried out either using a chamfer or a shoulder preparation with rounded interior angle.
  • * A circular cutting depth of one millimeter is required.
  • * The vertical preparation angle should be 3°, however, parallel preparation is also possible if clinically required.
  • * All transitions from the axial towards the occlusal surfaces must be rounded.

In many cases, an all-ceramic restoration that is stronger than stacked porcelain is needed to achieve the ideal esthetic result. Pressed ceramic is ideal in these situations. Our recommendation for pressed glass restorations is IPS Empress Esthetic and the new IPS e.max porcelains.
IPS Empress Esthetic remains the ultimate leucite reinforced pressed glass ceramic, featuring a broader range of ingot shades and layering porcelains. It continues to be the ultimate benchmark for highly esthetic pressed porcelain veneers, inlays/onlays and single tooth replacements (bicuspid forward).
The new IPS e.max system now broadens the spectrum of ceramic IPS alternatives, providing the ultimate in metal-free esthetics with a single (universal) overlay porcelain that can be layered or pressed to the higher strength core materials of lithium disilicate and zirconia.
IPS Empress Esthetic - pressed porcelain veneers, inlays/onlays and single crowns (bicuspid forward)
IPS e.max - layered porcelain veneers, single crowns and bridgework up to 4 units
Not recommended when a more conservative option (stacked) can be used as it requires a minimal preparation of 1.0mm
