  • We’ve talked about the differences in material --- but the next question is how do these differences manifest themselves clinically? <br /> The difference we see comes in: <br /> Marginal Fit: <br /> In a market research study, we found that marginal fit is the most important criteria to doctors. <br /> 3M and others have performed numerous studies on fit. The studies have found that Lava consistently performs high on marginal fit. <br /> 2. Strength and Long Term Stability: <br /> We have found flexural strengths of Lava zirconia to be very high – as high in some cases as 1400 MPa and consistently higher than 1000 MPa. However, many of the competitive zirconias are able to produce high initial flex strengths as well, so the gap is narrowing. <br /> What is even more important than the initial flex strength, is the LONG-TERM STABILITY of the material. <br /> 3M has 5-yr. Clinical studies that show 100% survival rate. <br /> And finally- the translucency of the material. Lava zirconia shows natural translucency and unmatched esthetics.Additionally, Lava is unique with a patented substructure shading system producing 8 shades, which further increase the final esthetics. <br /> [1] 0828 In-Vitro Vertical Marginal Gap Comparison of CAD/CAM Zirconium Copings <br /> A.J.T.

  • There are differences in substructure shading systems. <br /> The Lava shading system is based on a patented chemical process. <br /> Lava substructures are available in 8 shades and use a patented chemical process which results: <br /> A uniform coloring of the framework, <br /> Less influence to translucency, <br /> Show little or no reduction in strength with colored substructures. <br />
