Santa Clara, CA: Claims are being made that a dental crown product made by 3M, is defective. According to lawsuits filed by several dentists against the manufacturer, 3M marketed and sold hundreds of thousands of defective dental crowns to dentists across the country.
Specifically, the allegations state that the Lava Ultimate Restorative product debonded and failed at up to a 50 percent rate, requiring expensive replacements.
3M aggressively began marketing its Lava Ultimate crowns in 2011, telling dentists that the crowns provided unmatched aesthetics and durability for tooth restorations. However, 3M pulled the Lava Ultimate products for use in restorative crowns from the market last summer and admitted that the product was "de-bonding at a higher-than anticipated rate."
