Empress® Restorations

Dental veneers, crowns, onlays, inlays, and bridges are important restorations which enhance the health and functionality of the natural teeth.  A sparkling smile can be an enormous confidence-booster and have a dramatic effect on a person’s appearance.  Empress® has been dedicated to creating natural-looking restorations for almost two decades and is one of the world leaders in dental ceramics.

Empress® veneers, crowns, onlays, overlays, and dental bridges are renowned for their strength, durability, and exceptional optical properties.  Empress® restorations are completely metal-free, and are constructed from inorganic material which is baked and cured at high temperatures.

Why should I choose Empress® restorations?

Empress® is continually refining and enhancing restorations to ensure that they look natural and restore complete functionality to the teeth.

Traditional ceramic restorations were known for being brittle and expensive to repair after sustaining damage.  However, Empress® has developed a heat-pressed glass ceramic that is immensely strong and durable.  There are several reasons for this, including the high shrinkage of leucite crystals.  This shrinkage means that compressive stress is created during the vitreous stage, thus preventing breakage and cracking.

The unique veneer glaze and stain also increases strength by as much as 50%.  These elements combined establish a thicker restoration that is fracture resistant.  Empress® crowns have a 100% chance of surviving the first three years.  This means less dental visits, less expense, and a sensational, comfortable smile.

Here are some of the advantages associated with Empress® restorations:

  • Biocompatible.
  • Do not affect other dentition.
  • Ease of application.
  • Excellent polishing properties.
  • Many levels of translucency available.
  • Metal-free.
  • Natural-looking.
  • Shades match the other teeth.
What restorations can be done using Empress® products?

Empress® has created many natural-looking restorations, including:

Empress® Veneers – These veneers are wafer-thin porcelain and ceramic covers which fit permanently over natural teeth.  Empress® veneers are perfect for covering disfigured and stained teeth.  They are stain and bacteria-resistant, strong, and can be manufactured to match the natural tooth shade.

Empress® Crowns – These crowns are generally placed after root canal therapy or after the removal of tooth decay.  Empress® crowns are proven to last longer than many types of crowns, and again, can be matched exactly to the natural tooth shade.  There is no visible, ugly metal edge, just a sensational end result.

Empress® Inlays/Onlays – Inlays and onlays are currently being used to replace the traditional amalgam fillings.  Amalgam is unpleasant to view and unhealthy for the body.  Empress® ceramic inlays and overlays are strong, healthy, and usually invisible to onlookers.

Empress® Bridges – As with all Empress® products, Empress® bridges are a completely natural-looking way to replace missing teeth.  Metal bridges are often highly visible and make the teeth look shorter.  Empress® bridges are almost impossible to spot and restore symmetry and sparkle to the smile.

If you have questions about any of the Empress® restorations, please contact our office.

Testimonials

Dr. Mirkin is a trustworthy dentist with a gentle touch. I went in for a cleaning yesterday and was pleasantly surprised by how thorough she was with my consultation. She noted a few problem areas but was not pushy, which was refreshing. She took a lot of time discussing which teeth were most in need of work, and others that may need work down-the-line. I highly recommend Dr. Mirkin to anyone looking for a caring and professional dentist. Thanks Dr. Mirkin!

Since going back to school I lost my dental insurance. I found Dr. Mirkin through groupon and read great reviews so decided to give her a try. She is a very caring, attentive dentist that truly cares about your overall health as well as your teeth. She spends quality time explaining things and making you feel comfortable. She referred me to the dental choice program which is basically a discount program for those without dental insurance. Her prices are reasonable and her services are great. I recommended her to my boyfriend who started seeing her for dental care and we will not go anywhere else now. Also, Jessica her secretary is very friendly, responds quickly to phone calls and online appointment requests and or messages. She has made dealing with this office smooth and efficient.
