Lava™ Ultimate Restorative

Mon, 2013-01-07

We are now offering the new 3M LavaTM Ultimate; a uniquely different ceramic CAD/CAM restorative material with durable functionality.  A resin nano ceramic has an elastic modulus that's comparable to dentin--which is much lower than what brittle glass ceramic materials or PFM veneering porcelains provide. This enables Lava Ultimate restorative to better absorb chewing forces and reduce stress to the CAD/CAM restoration. This is especially advantageous for crowns over implants. A tooth is naturally protected by the flex of the periodontal ligament, but the implant procedure removes the ligament, leaving no shock absorbance or sensory function-so the crown may fracture or chip.
