3M™ ESPE™ Lava™

3M ESPE Lava

  • Beautiful esthetics that mirror natural teeth

  • High strength and fracture resistance

  • CAD/CAM provides precise margins and consistent thickness

  • Staining process ensures complete color throughout coping

3M ESPE Lava is touted as one of the most esthetic and clinically proven dental zirconia restorations available. The Lava dental zirconia understructure is made utilizing CAD/CAM technology, a process during which the pinned and sectioned model is scanned with a 3-D optical scanner, the understructure designed on the computer screen, and then the zirconia crown or bridge milled using a pre-sintered dental zirconia block. This milled dental zirconia block is then colored using one of eight shades matched to the VITA® Classical Shade Guide. The milled Lava zirconia frame is sintered for 10 hours to fully gain its high strength and fracture resistance. Finally, a proprietary, pre-blended ceramic is pressed over the zirconium oxide understructure.
