Feldspathic Porcelain

Feldspathic veneers and crowns use a layering technique where layers of porcelain are laid down and the tooth is grown, much like a pearl or natural tooth grows to create Feldspathic veneers. This gives a natural, vivid, lustrous appearance to the veneers that create the most natural, life-like, smile makeovers that can be achieved.

We use both platinum foil and refractory model technique depending on the case condition. By hand layering Feldspathic porcelain, our ceramists create veneers of dynamic beauty and pearl-like translucency. Feldspathic veneers can be made as thin as 0.3 mm to 0.5 mm which requires far less tooth reduction than other veneering alternatives. These remarkable veneers are indicated for slight contour and color changes, and are available in bleach shades. Utilizing diagnostic wax-up and study models are imperative to create an ultimate result for your patients.

Indication:

  • Features/Benefits: Highly cosmetic with minimal thickness, hand layered for dynamic beauty, pearl-like translucency, may be fabricated as thin as 0.3 mm to 0.5 mm, available in bleach shades, indicated for slight contour & color changes
  • Preparation Shoulder/chamfer margin design 1.0 mm Min. at the margin 1.5 – 2.0 mm reduction at incisal, facial lingual
  • Cementation Light cured bonding (e.g. veneer, thin/translucent) or dual cured adhesive resin
  • Anterior/ Posterior, Veneers, Crowns, Inlays/ Onlays

Currently IPS Empress® is one of the leading technologies and is popular for its excellent aaesthetic properties and high precision. With over 30 million restorations fabricated with the material to date, the system has gained a reputation for producing long-lasting, natural-looking results with high quality standards.

Indication:

  • Features/Benefits Metal-free natural aesthetics, low wear superior strength, wide range of translucency, marginal integrity, wear compatibility.
  • Preparation Shoulder margin design 1.0 mm Min. at the margin 1.5 – 2.0 mm reduction at incisal, facial lingual
  • Cementation Light cured (e.g. veneer,thin/translucent) or dual cured adhesive resin
  • IPS Empress® is mostly used for Veneers, crowns, Inlays & onlays.
