Lava™ Zirconia Custom Abutments
Enjoy superior aesthetics, bonding and tissue response with Lava Zirconia custom abutments!
A custom abutment precision milled from Lava™ Zirconia (3M ESPE) could be the solution you are looking for in the aesthetic zone. Our milling center can scan, design and precision mill a custom abutment out of solid Lava Zirconia to fit a number of implant systems including:
- Nobel Biocare
- Biomet 3i
- And more
The question is, why choose a Lava Zirconia custom abutment? The answer is, for the following 3 reasons:
Having a tooth colored abutment is an obvious advantage for restorations in the aesthetic zone. What is more, the abutment can be milled from a selection of 8 shades varieties (even more with ‘Lava™ Premium’) available directly from 3M and can even be further customized by our technicians if necessary to achieve the ideal core color.
Given that no blocking agents are required to hide the core and complete color customization is possible, a natural tooth-like translucency can almost always be achieved which consistently produces results that meet – and often exceed – patient expectations.
Another advantage is that you can choose from a variety of bonding/cementing agents (GI, RMGI, Self-etching resins, etc.) which not only gives you the flexibility to choose your favorite, but also results in a much more complete fusion – think perfectly sealed margin – than you would get from cementing to a titanium abutment, for example.
This could make a significant difference in terms of long-term performance of both the final restoration and tissue response. You know, as well as we, that the last thing your patients want is to have premature failure in the aesthetic zone!
Superior Tissue Response
Our Lava Zirconia abutments are milled from a homogenous / non-porous block of solid Zirconia. So, you can rest assured you will get the most precision marginal fit possible. In addition, Zirconia is one of the most bio-compatible materials available and, as already mentioned, can be permanently fused to the final restoration, all of which combines to help you achieve optimal tissue response around your implant restoration. In fact, according to recent studies, it can even allow for regeneration of the gingiva in some cases.
Here at Okon Dental Labs we use the latest in 3-D scanning and CAD/CAM technology to ensure you always get the absolute best Lava Zirconia custom abutment possible so you can give your patients a strong, long-lasting, beautiful implant restoration.
