Our dentist and team are committed to offering you the best in dental care, which is why we use Empress® restorations. Empress restorations are renowned for their exceptional strength, durability and aesthetic appeal, making them an excellent choice for enhancing your smile. Whether you need veneers, crowns, inlays, onlays or bridges, Empress restorations provide a reliable solution.

Empress restorations are crafted from a special heat-pressed glass ceramic combined with a unique veneer glaze. This innovative process induces compressive stress during the creation of your restoration, significantly reducing the risk of breaks or cracks. The veneer glaze further enhances the restoration’s strength by up to 50%, ensuring a natural-looking, comfortable and long-lasting result.

Here are some key benefits of choosing Empress restorations for your dental needs:

  • Biocompatibility: Empress restorations are safe and compatible with your body, minimizing the risk of adverse reactions.
  • No Impact on Other Teeth: These restorations do not affect your adjacent teeth, maintaining the integrity of your overall dentition.
  • Metal-Free: Empress restorations are entirely free of metal, offering a more natural appearance and avoiding metal allergies.
  • Excellent Polishing Properties: They can be polished to a high shine, enhancing their aesthetic appeal.
  • Customizable Translucency: With various levels of translucency available, we can match the restoration to your natural teeth for a seamless look.

The process of receiving an Empress restoration begins with designing a wax model of your teeth. This model is then used to create a sturdy mold from a specially formulated material. The wax is melted away, and softened ceramic is pressed into the mold and hardened. After the ceramic restoration is completed, it is finished with a veneer glaze. Finally, our skilled dentist will bond the restoration into place, completing your treatment.
