A reoccurring issue in our professional circles is the question whether solid, full-contour Zirconia crowns are at all indicated in the view of aesthetics, abrasion characteristics, compatibility, and strength. Can we recommend them to our patients? As far as (full-anatomical-contour) solid Zirconia restorations are concerned, we all agree that a special translucent Zirconia material is needed first. For this reason, we have developed the highly translucent Prettau® Zirconia which 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.
