3M™ ESPE™ Lava Crowns and Bridges are based on translucent, shaded zirconia copings or frameworks. The result is beautifully vital esthetics that exceed PFMs. The excellent marginal adaption of Lava crowns and bridges is equal to that of PFMs. Lava's PFM-like chamfer margins and conventional cementation require no changes to your favorite clinical procedures.
Lava is indicated for single-unit crowns, 6-unit bridges with a maximum span length of 42 mm with two pontic spans between abutments consecutively, and implant copings. Cantilever bridges with one pontic can be fabricated if the bridge has a double abutment.
