What is Prettau® Zirconia?

Zirconia is a natural element found in the earth’s crust. This first-class performance material has been successfully used for more than 20 years in many facets and is now available for the dental industry. Due to its excellent health-friendly characteristics, zirconia is nowadays the preferred material of modern dental restorations among materials available today.

The Advantages

  • Longevity
  • Extreme solidity
  • High translucency
  • Absolutely metal-free
  • Excellent health compatibility
  • No black lines (margins) at gumline.
  • Gives the look of perfectly formed teeth and healthy gums


Zirconia can mimic real enamel because it is naturally white. This allows it to be closely matched to each patient‘s tooth color, making it ideal for natural-looking dental restorations. Due to the zirconia‘s combination of natural white color and incredible strength, there is no dark metal that gives off the black lines at the gumline that you see with inferior dental crowns and bridges.

Comfort and Cleanliness

The acid resistance and non-porous material prevents the absorption of smelly bacteria and food stains that you see with acrylic dentures and bridges. This is also healthy for the gum tissue and makes cleaning fast and easy.  Excellent accuracy of fit and first-class manufacturing characteristics of the material guarantee that it is pleasant and comfortable to wear.


The master craftsmanship of talented technicians results in zirconia dental restorations that represent one of your most important investments of your life. Due to the extreme hardness and high density of the material, it withstands the highest biting force within all the mouth areas. It does not wear off, and so its color remains unchanged.
