Lava Crowns and Bridges
Zirconia is a material regarded as having the highest strength and fracture toughness in dentistry.
The Lava™ All-Ceramic System from 3M ESPE uses innovative technology and superior materials to help you produce high quality restorations for you.
Using the speed and precision of CAD/CAM technology, it creates all-ceramic crowns and bridge substructures with zirconia, an extremely strong, stable and fracture resistant ceramic material. The result is efficient production of restorations with excellent esthetics, enduring strength and precise fit.
When using CAD/CAM technology, the fit can be set for each abutment tooth in the software (e.g., 3M™ ESPE™ Lava™) which customizes the marginal gap for the clinical situation. The accuracy and ability of all CAD/CAM technologies to implement the predetermined fit depends on the accuracy of the entire system from the scanning device, milling material and milling unit.
