Lava™ Plus High Translucency Zirconia

  • Lava™ Plus High Translucency Zirconia Shading Technology

    True Colors – An A2 is an A2

    3M’s patented color ion shading technology delivers consistent color. Developed specifically for a consistent color match to VITA Classical shades, Lava Plus High Translucency Zirconia Dyeing liquids are available in each VITA Classical shade plus two bleach shades. For popular VITA 3D-Master® shades, 3M ESPE provides a conversion chart to ensure you can deliver an accurate match for your dentist. Your high strength, translucent restorations will have a warm and natural esthetic appearance because the shading liquid is completely absorbed and provides coloration throughout the restoration. Our special chemistry enables our material to maintain its translucency even after shading.

  • Low Antagonist Wear

    The average grain size of less than 0.5 µm and the material properties found in Lava Plus Zirconia yields a surface that is also kind to opposing dentition.


  • High Throughput Speed Sintering Cycle

    The same unique blend of raw materials that contributes to the Lava Plus Zirconia's excellent translucency, strength and aging stability enables the use of a Speed Sintering Cycle. This high throughput sintering schedule allows for a sintering time of 160min., without compromising strength or translucency. This allows for up to three batches a day.
