Lava Esthetic



Esthetic Fluorescent Full-Contour Zirconia

3M’s Lava Esthetic is a new gradient pre-shaded cubic zirconia disc that features a one-of-a-kind new shading technology. It has a unique four shading elements formulation that allows it to be the first pre-shaded zirconia offering inherent fluorescence for all shades. With the new shading technology employed, the color gradients built into Lava Esthetic Zirconia truly match the VITA Classic shades enabling you to produce highly esthetic full-contour restorations in a simple mill-sinter-glaze process.

  • First zirconia with inherent, tooth-like fluorescence for high-esthetic full-contour crown and bridge cases.
  • High translucency, optimized for full-contour anterior and posterior restorations.
  • Excellent shade match to VITA Classic shades with unique shading technology and built-in shade gradient.
  • Durable full-contour. 800 MPa through and through.
  • Enhanced productivity: Streamlined mill-sinter-glaze process.

With easy positioning of the restoration in the disc due to its simple layer concept: The two upper zones are always 3 mm thick, regardless of the disc height. Only the thickness of the body zone varies.

“How to achieve outstanding results”

Features

Lava Esthetic Shades

Enhanced Productivity

With the new shading technology employed, the color gradients built into the Lava Esthetic zirconia truly match the VITA Classic shades enabling you to produce highly esthetic full-contour restorations in a simple mill-sinter-glaze process. No need for drying time or liquid shading. You save 3.5 hours compared to liquid zirconia materials.

Toothlike Fluorescence

Natural teeth absorb the invisible UV light present in sunlight and artificial light and emit a visible bluish light. This is fluorescence. Zirconia is not fluorescence, but due to it’s unique shading formulation, Lava Esthetic Zirconia is the first inherently fluorescent pre-shaded zirconia. This allows for a lifelike appearance in any light, whether in daylight or black light.

Natural Esthetics 

Pre-shaded 3M Lava Esthetic Zirconia discs have an integral color gradient to deliver natural-looking shading from enamel to dentin.There is no need to apply extra shading liquids or color corrections after sintering. What you get are esthetic full-contour restorations that truly match the VITA Classic shades.
