This is a highly translucent Zirconia which is used in conjunction with a specialized colouring technique that eliminates the use of veneer ceramics in the functioning area. In this way,
aesthetically pleasing full-zirconia restorations, i.e. the Prettau®
Bridge can be realized. Prettau®
Zirconia is the material of choice for frequently occurring problems like reduced available space, bruxism or ceramic chipping. It offers a functional and at the same time aesthetical solution.
We use this material for single crowns & bridges to full mouth reconstruction. This highly biocompatible and non-porous material distinguishes itself through its extremely high translucency and perfectly natural appearance. Sintered Prettau Zirconia, owing to its own special material composition, displays incredible density and smoothness which causes practically no abrasion to natural dentition. Prettau® Zirconia is partially stabilized with yttrium and enriched with aluminium. This results in positive material properties like a high bending strength of up to 1,570 MPa, a high temperature resistance (of up to 2,600°C), as well as a constant shrinking factor granting the highest possible precision.
Seating Recommendations: Cementation can be accomplished using proven, conventional techniques with Self Adhesive Resin Cements, Luting Cements and Glass Ionomer Cements
