Universal stains and glazes

IPS Ivocolor is a universal range of Stain and Glaze materials suitable for the individualized characterization, staining and glazing of press, CAD and layering ceramics from Ivoclar. The materials are designed to create true-to-nature restorations made of zirconium oxide or lithium disilicate, all-ceramics or metal-supported ceramics.[1]

Creating lifelike restorations[2]

Create the individuality you want with IPS Ivocolor. Design mamelons, halo effects or enamel cracks and achieve natural depth and incisal translucency. Patients desire lifelike[2] restorations.

IPS Ivocolor is suitable for characterizing and glazing both high- and low-fusing ceramic materials that fall within a CTE range between 9.5 and 16.6 x 10-6/K. You only need one assortment to customize and glaze your restorations. This allows you to work more effectively, improves your economic efficiency and helps you achieve restorations of a consistently high quality.

«For me IPS Ivocolor has two advantages. First, it is universal and can be used on any ceramic material from Ivoclar and second it is low- fusing, which means that all the pigments of the ceramic materials you have applied before remain precisely as they are.»

User videos

Individual characteristics, such as pronounced mamelons, calcium spots or cracks in the enamel, can be created quickly and easily. Create esthetic results, comparable to a layered ceramic build-up. Natural shade effects and light dynamic properties[2], together with a coordinated intensity and fluorescence, create the desired appearance of depth and polychromatic esthetics radiating from within the teeth.
