Prettau® Skin® Technique – For ultra-thin zirconia veneers
Zero to minimal-invasive treatment
Prettau® Skin® veneers show a thickness of 0.2 mm only!
With the innovative Prettau® Skin® technique, patients can get a healthy smile with zero to minimal impairment of tooth substance in cases of tooth discolouration, tooth gaps, crooked teeth, cone teeth and abraded teeth. The veneers are manufactured using preferably Prettau® 3 Dispersive®, provided with colour, translucency and flexural strength gradients (Gradual-Triplex-Technology). Alternatively, Prettau® 2 Dispersive® or Prettau® 4 Anterior® Dispersive® zirconia types can also be used.

Digitally-made preparation guide
The dental technician designs and manufactures a patient-specific preparation guide, marking the tooth areas that the dentist has to prepare for veneers application: a useful planning and communication tool between dental technician and dentist, for the final benefit of the patient.
Fast and aesthetic
The final aesthetics are individualised with a slight application of ICE Stains 3D by Enrico Steger and, optionally, with Fresco Enamel ceramics. With the new Zirkonofen Turbo and its pre-set fast sintering programs for each kind of Zirkonzahn zirconia, it is now possibile to sinter smaller zirconia structures in about 1 hour and 30 minutes: this means that the veneers can be milled, sintered and veneered in 2 hours and 10 minutes only!
FINAL RESTORATION IN 2 hours and 10 minutes only!
