New Zirkonzahn Prettau 2 Dispersive polychromatic zirconia now available in 95mm and 98mm diameter blanks

The Prettau Bridge has been used for patients all over the world for 10 years now, with tens of thousands of structures skilfully coloured by hand and refined individually for each patient.


Using all these experiences, Zirkonzahn developed Prettau 2 Dispersive zirconia. The result being a particularly translucent zirconia with a high flexural strength that is manufactured with a natural colour shading already in the blank. In order to achieve a particularly smooth shade transition after the sintering process, it is important that the colours are not distributed in layers, but finely scattered.

Depending on the aesthetic requirements, the structures can also be further individualised by manually applying Colour Liquids, ceramics or stains. The biocompatible zirconia that can be designed monolithically or reduced, is suitable for both single crowns as well as full arch bridges.

Properties at a glance

  • Pre-coloured zirconia with natural colour gradient, excellent flexural strength and particularly high translucency.
  • Merging colour gradient that reproduces the natural tooth colours from dentine to enamel, colour scheme from A1-D4.
  • Manual colouring with Colour Liquids is not required any more, but it can be used to achieve a more patient specific result.
  • No limitations! Especially suitable for full arch restorations but also for single crowns, inlays, onlays, veneers and bridges with up to 14 elements, occlusally screwed or cemented (fully anatomical or reduced for veneering with ICE Zirkon Ceramics).
  • No ceramic chipping (thanks to the fully anatomical design).
  • No abrasion to the antagonist.
