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.
