A Plus in Translucency

Strong and versatile, enabling tooth preserving preparations

  • Lava™ Plus may be used anywhere, for any indication. The material allows a 0.5 mm minimum wall thickness, requiring 3X less occlusal preparation than lithium disilicate glass ceramic because of its 3X greater strength.*

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

Excellent Aging Stability

Easy Adjustments

  • If minor intra-oral adjustments are necessary, use a fine diamond bur with water-cooling and continue with a standard rubber polisher set for ceramic dental materials. To achieve a high-shine finish, use a diamond polishing paste and a suitable polishing brush.

Restorations are easily cemented with RelyX™ Unicem 2 Self Adhesive Cement
