Prettau® Zirconia – Special Translucent Material
Highly translucent Prettau® Zirconia is used in conjunction with a specialized colouring technique that eliminates the use of veneer ceramics entirely. In this way, aesthetically pleasing full-Zirconia (FZ) restorations, i.e. the “Prettau® Bridge” can be realized.
Especially in the field of implant dentistry, in cases of limited available space or restorations with tissue flanges, Prettau® Zirconia comes into a world of its own. One of the many advantages is the complete elimination of posterior occlusal chipping because only the labial or buccal surfaces are porcelain veneered; all functional areas are maintained as solid Prettau® Zirconia.
