Straumann launches nano material for tooth restorations

Straumann introduced a new resin-nano-ceramic (RNC) material developed by 3M ESPE this week at the European Association for Osseointegration annual meeting in Athens, Greece.

The new material combines nanoceramic components with a cross-linked resin matrix and is cured using a proprietary 3M process.

Straumann is the first company to launch the material, which is supplied by 3M ESPE under the trade name 3M ESPE Lava Ultimate Restorative. It is indicated for single-tooth restorations, full-contour inlays, onlays, veneers, partial crowns, and crowns (tooth- or implant-borne). It is available in 12 different shades, and the material can only be processed using CAD/CAM technology.

The new material can be used to produce complete restorations in a single piece, rather than in multiple layers, Straumann noted.
