Whether you design simple or complex restorations using zirconia or other materials, the Lava Design 7 Platform supports you along the way.
Better marginal fit versus competitive systems
The Lava™ System and zirconia materials show a good marginal fit in comparison to competitors.

Scanner accuracy: a function of data density
The Lava system scanner produces greater data density without sacrificing scan time.

Lava™ Design 7 Software - Scan Features.
Benefit from the advanced nested scanning ability with the Lava™ Multi- Die Plate. The scan time for a fully filled plate - 10 single stumps - is less than 2 minutes and 20 seconds. This results in a single stump scan time less than 14 seconds.
Rescan individual dies as needed, close scanning holes without rescanning the whole model or add occlusal points towards adjacent teeth. Alternatively, data holes can be closed in the software automatically.
Full arch scanning ability1
Scan full arches for orientation or for better long-span restorations. A 60 mm × 70 mm jaw is possible in a scan window of 80 × 100 × 42 mm³.
Opposing arch scan1
Scan the full opposing arch separately and in occlusion with the lower jaw model. This allows the dental lab to display the bite situation in occlusion and design the restorations accordingly. The scan provides the necessary data for the virtual articulation.
Full wax-up scanning
Scan wax-ups as a design aid or to copy-mill, customize or reduce automatically to the final restoration of your choice. A scan of the stump data will be combined with the wax-up scan to achieve all possible indications.
1 Feature available for the latest version of the Lava™ Scan ST only (purchased after Oct. 2010). Upgrade kits available for earlier models – for details please contact your local sales representative.
Experience the freedom of design with numerous new features and functions related to Full-Contour design. More ways to customize easily, an open library for Full-Contour designs and an advanced automatic reduction process make every design more attractive and flexible.
Advanced flexibility in general design.
Gain maximum control over parameters and coping design. Add collars or customize the cement and expansion gaps as necessary while you design your genuine Lava™ Restoration. Set and save defaults for various indications, customers and dentists and adjust specific parameters for your everyday lab work.
Advanced order management.
The lab can easily manage the different steps and various cases within the Lava™ Digital Workflow and maintain full control over cases and restorations. Dedicated workstations for scanning, designing, nesting and milling preparation are possible, enabling a more productive and faster workflow.
Design multiple restorations in one, or even opposing arches without interruption or limitation, copings, bridges and abutment cases.
