Lava™ Ultimate Restorative


Lava™ Ultimate Restorative is a resin nano ceramic material that offers amazing esthetics, strength and unique functionality.

It’s indicated for a full range of permanent adhesive, single-unit restorations.

  • Onlays
  • Inlays
  • Veneers
Special features:

  • Excellent durability backed by a 10-year warranty
  • Less wear to opposing dentition than glass ceramics
  • Absorption of chewing forces which reduces stress
  • Adjustability for occlusion with additive or subtractive techniques
  • Fast, no firing and easy to mill

Recommended cementation
Restorations made with Lava™ Ultimate Restorative must be bonded with an adhesive resin cement. 3M ESPE recommends RelyX™ Ultimate Adhesive Resin Cement with Scotchbond™ Universal Adhesive – the primer and adhesive are in one bottle. The flexibility of this system enables you to etch the tooth preparation using a self-etch, selective-etch or a total-etch technique all with one system.
