Lava All-Zirconia Monolithic Jacket Crown

Lava™ All-Zirconia is a tooth-coloured, metal-free and biocompatible alternative to full cast metal restorations and non-precious PFM in the posterior region.

Lava™ All-Zirconia is made from a monolithic block. Monolithic restoration means no porcelain overlay is needed and therefore chipping is no longer possible.

Advantages of Lava™ All-Zirconia vs. non-precious PFM

  • Virtually unbreakable, no chipping
  • Metal-free & biocompatible
  • Natural tooth color throughout the restoration
  • Ideal for patients with little inter-occlusal space
  • No metal margin to hide
  • Allows supra-gingival prep margins
  • Ideal for bruxism patients and those who grind their teeth
  • 15-year limited warranty

Disadvantages

  • Expensive equipment.
  • Special training for the technician.
  • Obtaining the Chameleon effect is difficult because of stark white color of zirconium dioxide ceramic framework.
