Long-Term Stability with No Allergic Potential

Lava Crowns & Bridges are among the most esthetically pleasing and clinically sound all-ceramic restorations available. Lava restorations offer excellent long-term stability with no allergenic potential. Milled from a pre-sintered 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.

Lava Plus zirconia restorations are available, as well. 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.

Validations

Great Performance After 5 Years

Five-year clinical results for Lava Crowns & Bridges, one of the first commercially available zirconia systems, are now available. Prof. P. Pospiech together with Dr. F. P. Nothdurft and Dr. P. R. Rountree from the University of Munich recently published their data at the Conference of the Pan European Federation of the IADR in Dublin, Ireland.

After five years, no failures were recorded. Slight chipping of veneering porcelain was seen in some cases but did not warrant repair or replacement. No allergenic reactions or negative influences on the marginal gingiva were observed. The clinicians observed a high level of performance for Lava zirconia-based posterior bridges after five years of clinical service.
