BruxZir & 3M Lava Esthetic Crowns and Bridges

BruxZir & 3M Lava Esthetic Solid Zirconia are incredibly durable monolithic (no porcelain overlay) zirconia crown or bridge restorations. Originally promoted as delivering "More Brawn Than Beauty", BruxZir was developed as a tenaciously durable crown or bridge material that provided a tooth-colored alternative to posterior metal occlusal Porcelain Fused to Metal or cast gold restorations. BruxZir is also indicated for fixed restorations where there is insufficient occlusal space for full-coverage porcelain restorations. Increased translucency and internal shading has improved the esthetic results that can now be expected with BruxZir restorations.

3M Lava Esthetic is an incredibly vital cubic Zirconia ceramic which is ideal for monolithic crowns and bridges.  It has a flexural strength of 800 MPa and a vitality that rivals lithium disilicate restorations (IPS e.max and LiSi Press).   Lava Esthetic is the first Zirconia with inherent, tooth-like fluorescence, so it maintains its natural appearance under a wide variety of light sources.  3M Lava Esthetic and Nash Dental innovations in Zirconia from names you trust!
