Lava™ Classic is recommended for use with Intra-oral scanners.  

The Lava™ system from 3M ESPE is one of our more prestigious independent crown and bridge options.

All Lava™ products are created using Lava™ Design software by 3M ESPE, in conjunction with CAD/CAM technology. The combination of the high milling accuracy and calculation of the sintering shrinkage via the system software results in an excellent fit. Lava™ has an incredibly natural appearance, with a choice of eight different shades, and the fracture strength of zirconium oxide is many times higher than that of conventional all-ceramic materials.
