3M ESPE Lava Premium system is based on a unique 3M ESPE shading technology, meaning that its color is not on the surface but comes from within. This unique technology used in the Lava Premium Dyeing Liquids also helps to preserve translucency after shading, without compromising strength.
Since its introduction in 2001, Lava Zirconia has become a huge success story. Millions of restorations have been produced and Lava Systems are running in over 40 countries around the globe.
Lava Zirconia is one of the best investigated materials on the market with over 100 studies published by researchers worldwide. Lava stands for high-strength restorations with outstanding marginal fit and excellent aesthetics. Due to its proven reliability, 3M ESPE grants for 15 years from the date of placement that copings or substructures made out of Lava Zirconia will not break.
