Highlights

  • Brilliant esthetics with long-lasting polish
  • Shading liquid is completely absorbed and provides coloration throughout the restoration
  • Widest range of dyeing liquids
  • Lava™ Plus Zirconia shading system enables highly esthetic all-zirconia or traditional layered restorations

Patented 3M™ Lava™ Plus Dyeing Liquids preserve the translucency after shading by allowing the natural, warm colors to shine from the inside of dental crowns and dental bridges giving dentists and labs more options to achieve any shade for unparalleled individualization.

Lava™ Plus Enamel Liquids allow for a naturally flowing, more esthetic transition from the dentin to the incisal edge. Lava™ Plus Effect Shades are offered in 8 shades bringing individual artistry into every restoration.
