  • 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 discolourations, 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 discolourations or metal surfaces successfully: Even in deeper areas, discolouration is no longer visible.


Masking of:

  • Exposed metal surfaces when repairing damaged ceramic or composite veneers intraorally
  • discoloured tooth structure


  • 1 x 1.8 g syringe
  • Step 1.

Apply IPS Empress Direct Opaque to the prepared metal surface only. The layer applied should have a thickness of maximum 0.5 mm. Lightcure IPS Empress Direct Opaque according to the table 1 on 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.
