3M ESPE introduces Lava™ Ultimate CAD/CAM Restorative, a unique new CAD/CAM material with long-lasting esthetics and performance. Based on 3M ESPE’s renowned nanotechnology, Lava Ultimate CAD/CAM restorative offers a polish that lasts, and backs it up with a 10-year warranty. This new class of CAD/CAM material provides a fast, no-firing process that is easy to mill, helping dentists maximize the productivity of their in-office restorative systems. The unique restorative offers a functionality that other chairside materials cannot: Lava Ultimate CAD/CAM is resilient, not brittle, and is incredibly durable and shock absorbent. A few minutes of polishing are all that is necessary to achieve an enamel-like luster. The material also allows dentists to easily make adjustments, as well as build-up and reseal restorations. Lava Ultimate CAD/CAM restorative will be offered in eight shades, four of which include both high and low translucencies, giving dentists the choices they need to create natural-looking restorations. Lava Ultimate CAD/CAM restorative is indicated for a full range of permanent adhesive, single-unit restorations including crowns, onlays, inlays and veneers. Additionally, the material is ideally suited for implant supported restorations because of its high flexural strength and low wear. Lava Ultimate CAD/CAM restorative reduces stress to the implant, and dentists can adjust the material for occlusion with additive and subtractive techniques.
