- High masking capability even when applied in thin layers
- The ideal complement to the IPS Empress System
- Universal opaque shade, no shade matching required.
The light-curing opaque IPS Empress Direct Opaquer material reliably masks undesired tooth discolorations, exposed metal surfaces and core build-ups in the anterior and posterior region. Given its high masking power, even the application of thin layers is sufficient to mask undesired discolorations or metal surfaces successfully: Even in deeper areas, discoloration is no longer visible.
- Exposed metal surfaces when repairing damaged ceramic or composite veneers intraorally
- Discolored tooth structure
DIRECTION TO USE
Step 1. Apply IPS Empress Direct Opaque to the prepared metal surface only. The layer applied should have a thickness of maximum of 0.5 mm. Lightcure IPS Empress Direct Opaque according to table 1 on the reverse. Hold the light emission window of the curing light as close to the material as possible. If the surface is still not sufficiently masked, apply a second layer of IPS Empress Direct Opaque and light-cure again.
Step 2. If the cavity includes proximal areas, place a matrix band and secure it with a wedge.
Step 3. Repair the restoration by applying composite material (e.g. IPS Empress Direct) in increments. Light-cure each increment according to the instructions of the manufacturer of the respective product.
Step 4. Finishing and polishing.
