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 full-contour digital Lava DVS restorations. Lava DVS delivers consistent strength, optimized fit and excellent esthetics. Lava DVS is more esthetic than single-layer pressed ceramics due to its unique composition. Made of three main layers — the Lava zirconia coping, fusion porcelain and glass ceramic material — Lava DVS is a one-of-a-kind restoration indicated for single-unit crowns.
