Lava™ Crowns & Bridges
3M™ ESPE™ Lava™ Crowns & Bridges are touted as one of the most esthetic and clinically proven all-ceramic restorations available today. Lava restorations offer excellent long-term stability with no allergenic potential. Milled from a presintered Lava zirconia block, each framework is colored using one of eight VITA® shades. After sintering for 10 hours to gain strength and fracture resistance, the framework is layered with feldspathic Lava Ceram porcelain. The final Lava restoration demonstrates exceptional marginal fit, lifelike translucency and long-term durability. Prescribe Lava for anterior and posterior single-unit crowns, bridges up to 6 units (with a maximum span length of 55 mm), inlay bridges, wing-type bridges, implant copings and cantilever bridges.
We also offer Lava Plus zirconia restorations. Emitting warm, natural colors from the center of the restoration, Lava Plus allows for unparalleled individualization through its translucent shading system, which features 18 colors and eight effect shades. Lava Plus zirconia blocks can be milled into high-strength monolithic or layered restorations, and are indicated for single-unit crowns, bridges up to 5 units and implant crowns.
