  1. 1. Lava™ Ultimate CAD/CAM Restorative for CEREC® The Ultimate Milling Material Fast, easy and no firing
  2. 2. A unique Resin Nano Ceramic for durability and function 3M™ ESPE™ Lava™ Ultimate CAD/CAM Restorative is a new classification of material called a Resin Nano Ceramic (RNC). Utilising 3M’s revolutionary nanoceramic technology, the material is a mixture of composite and ceramic. Like a composite, the material is not brittle and is fracture resistant. Like a glass ceramic the material has excellent polish retention for lasting aesthetics1. This new material is highly heat cured during its manufacture, which eliminates the need for a firing step after milling. The material can easily be milled at the chairside or in a dental lab, polishes quickly to a high gloss finish and if necessary can be further adapted using light-cure restoratives. Advantages at a glance • ast no-firing process for true chairside workflow F • Easy to mill and polish • ife-like aesthetics with a high polish and a variety of shades L • igh strength and fracture toughness for a long lasting restoration1 H • Intra-oral adjustability with light-cure composites • 10 Year Limited Warranty against fracturing 0-Year 1 it e d an Li m ty Full terms and conditions associated with the 10-Year Limited Warranty can be found at W ar r Delivers the edge you need In comparison with a typical glass ceramic, the less brittle nature of Lava Ultimate CAD/CAM restorative results in effortless milling, ease of adjustment and cutting, and suggests less fragility at try-in1.

  3. 3. Fracture Toughness K1C (MPa m ^1/2) Strong and tough Lava Ultimate CAD/CAM restorative features a flexural strength of 200MPa – higher than any other CAD/CAM material that does not require post firing. Previously the maximum strength that true chairside CAD/CAM material could achieve was approx. 150 MPa. As a result of this extraordinary strength combined with high resilience, we can now offer monolithic posterior crowns, even over implants. MZ100 Natural-looking and tough.
