Lava™ restorations are made with Lava™ Zirconia and are designed and milled with the innovative Lava™ CAD/CAM system. The combination of materials used and the precise milling process produce a strong restoration with excellent marginal integrity. Lava™ crowns and bridges also offer a beautifully natural translucency in addition to their strength and marginal fit.

Not all Zirconia restorations are the same and other zirconias may be chemically similar to Lava, but once processed, the mechanical and optical characteristics can be significantly different. At GIE Dental Laboratory we are committed to excellence and we therefore use Noritake CZR porcelain for all of our Lava™ crown and bridges restorations.

Noritake CZR luster porcelain exhibits minimal wear to the opposing dentition and assures the natural reflection of opalescence or translucency that you are looking for. The combination of CZR and Lava™ will provide your restorations enhanced esthetics, a great marginal fit and the maximum strength available.
