Without zirconia there would be no Zirkonzahn.

Strongly convinced of the base properties of this material, I decided to make the best of it for us dental technicians. To achieve that, much more was necessary than initially thought – premium raw materials, expensive manufacturing and cleaningprocesses, colouring concepts, processing tools, milling strategies once manual and now digital, sintering furnaces and consistently new solutions. But we never gave up. We studied everything to the final detail and assembled thenecessary puzzle that is Prettau® zirconia. Prettau®: a name deeply connected to my South Tyrolean homeland. A commitment and a promise at the same time. Now, we are persistently pushing the path of our Prettau® zirconia towards monolithic design. Zirconia is and remains our passion – and our pride. You can count on that!

Yours, Enrico Steger

Overview Zirconia


New! Zirkonzahn Shade Guides determine precise patient tooth shade and optimal Prettau® Dispersive® material selection with monolithic zirconia sample teeth. The colour spectrum is inspired by the VITA classic range, comprised of 16 dentine shades (A1-D4) and 3 Bleach shades. The sample teeth are monolithic and glazed with 3D Base Glaze glaze material. Colour theory shows that shape and surface structure considerably influence the colour effect. Striving for perfection, we build our shade guides in all respective Prettau® Dispersive® zirconia materials in the shape of a premolar as well as upper and lower incisor. For the dental practice, we recommend using our specially developed Zirkonzahn Shade Guide Prettau® Line in the shape of a premolar as well as a lower and upper incisor, to identify easily the natural tooth colour.
