Lava™ Plus High Translucency Zirconia
The unique formula of Lava™ Plus High Translucency Zirconia provides significantly higher translucency¹ and unprecedented beauty – without compromising strength.
- The patented shading system enables highly esthetic all-zirconia or traditionally layered restorations.
- Excellent color match to the VITA® Classical Shade Guide and VITA SYSTEM 3D-MASTER® Shades.
- High strength allows tooth-preserving ≤0.5mm minimum wall thickness – requiring 3X less occlusal preparation than lithium disilicate glass ceramic because of it’s 3X greater strength.
The Lava™ Plus all-zirconia block allows natural, warm colors to shine from the inside of dental crowns and dental bridges.
With the patented shading system of Lava Plus zirconia, you can offer your patients endless options for custom shading and unparalleled individualization - which helps to maintain the translucency of the restoration. With 18 colors and eight Lava™ Plus Effect Shades, this zirconia block system gives dentists options for unparalleled individualization. Customization of the zirconia block is also made more predictable, as Lava Plus is the only CAD/CAM zirconia system that matches the VITA® Classical A1-D4 shades, including the bleached shades. It is also the only available zirconia block system that features direct conversion to the most common VITA SYSTEM 3D-MASTER® Shades.
Lava Plus all-zirconia restorations are virtually unbreakable—and without porcelain overlay, worries about chipping are eliminated. And the durability doesn't stop there. Scientific data proves that Lava Plus all-zirconia restorations have antagonist-preserving wear properties and are not abraded or roughened under occlusal load.
It's the ideal, highly esthetic alternative to PFM or full-cast metal restorations.

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. For the mandatory high-shine polishing finish, use a diamond polishing paste and a suitable polishing brush.
- CementationDue to the outstanding strength of Lava Plus zirconia,
a self-adhesive or adhesive resin cement is recommended.
