Lava™ Zircnia frameworks are the best zirconia substructures in the dental industry. With CAD/CAM design capability, we deliver a product that has excellent marginal fit and natural translucency.
Lava™ Zirconia frameworks from 3M ESPE offer the strength of metal with the most natural aesthetics currently available. Lava is available in 8 core shades creating the natural appearance of the restoration. Whether a single crown of a 6-unit bridge, the strength of this incredible substructure is unmatched by any other all-ceramic system.
Lava™ Zirconia from 3M ESPE is significantly different from traditional all-ceramic materials because of its superior strength and the fact that the zirconia substructure is available in 8 shades to give more flexibility in achieving the desired aesthetic outcome. In addition, the manufacturing process of the framework gives the technician the ability to design a framework that adequately supports the veneer ceramic, eliminating areas of excessive thickness of veneer material. This, in turn, decreases the risk of the veneer ceramic fracturing.
