In order for Lava™ Plus Zirconia to obtain its desired optical properties it must allow light to pass with a minimal amount of scattering. Scattering occurs when light strikes structural defects inside the sintered Zirconia. The high quality processing of Lava™ Zirconia minimizes these effects. Lava™ Plus Zirconia will sinter to a highly dense polycrystalline microstructure with an average grain size of below 0.5µm.
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.*
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
Lava™ Plus Zirconia's unique microstructure and chemical formulation also resists degradation that can be observed in zirconia ceramics when they are exposed to elevated temperatures in humid environments.
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.
RelyX™ Unicem 2 Cement has the best shear-bond strength to dentin and excellent shear-bond strength to enamel, providing a long-lasting and secure restoration.
