Thais Carter, DPR Director of Content, talks with Nikki McKeon, Marketing Manager for 3M ESPE's Lava brand about the launch of the Lava Plus high translucency zirconia.

"Lava Plus is a high translucency all zirconia or fully-veneered restoration," said McKeon. "We're very excited because 3M ESPE is known for bringing high quality products to the market. We're seeing a trend in the U.S. moving towards this monolithic or all zirconia type of restoration."

With the patented shading system of Lava Plus zirconia, dentists can offer their 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.
