Lava™ Crowns & Bridges

With more than five years of clinical history and proven results, the Lava™ Crowns and Bridges system from 3M™ ESPE™ is an innovative CAD/CAM technology using a zirconium oxide base. Preparations require removal of less tooth structure, and cementation can be accomplished using proven, conventional techniques. Ideal for bridges, Lava™'s precision CAD/CAM system produces restorations with outstanding marginal fit.

Lava™ Frame Zirconia is a high-tech ceramic material with outstanding stability. Capable of withstanding stresses many times greater than those occurring in the mouth, it's particularly suitable for 3- and 4-unit bridge frameworks including posterior teeth and longer spans. Lava™'s patented substructure shading system in 8 shades supplies frameworks that are thin and translucent yet ensure a natural and vital appearance. Lava™ crowns and bridges provide some of the most durable and esthetic all-ceramic restorations available today.

  • Indicated for anterior and posterior crowns and bridges.
  • Marginal fit as good as metal-ceramic bridges.
  • Combines the superior strength of zirconia with high fracture resistance.
