Lava™ DVS Digital Veneering System

 

A Faster Path to Beauty

The new Lava™ Digital Veneering System begins with the full contour design. The glass ceramic porcelain and the zirconia coping are then milled, and the final restoration is created by simply fusing the materials with Lava DVS Fusion Porcelain. The restoration can also be characterized with the system's stains, shades and glaze.

Final restorations produced with the system are more esthetic than pressed ceramics because they are made with three precisely controlled layers—the zirconia coping, the fusion porcelain and the glass ceramic material—all with different shades and translucencies.

More esthetic

Copings veneered with Lava™ DVS are more esthetic than Lava™ Zirconia Crowns with pressed ceramics.

More units per day
Dental technicians can produce more units per day with the Lava™ DVS system in comparison to pressed ceramics.

Controlled layer thicknesses
Lava™ DVS provides controlled layer thicknesses to properly support the porcelain.

Click on each number to see how simple it is to create beautiful DVS restorations.

Design
Start by designing a full contour restoration.The software automatically cuts back the full contour to produce an anatomically-shaped coping. This provides an ideal foundation to properly support porcelain work.

Milling
The zirconia coping is produced with a Lava Milling Machine. To produce the porcelain work, a Lava DVS glass ceramic block must be milled with the Lava CNC 500 Milling machine.

Fusion
The materials are simply fused together with Lava DVS Fusion Porcelain. The step requires minimal training and can be done by the milling center or by their dental lab customers.
