About PrettauLab

PrettauLab is a dedicated lab service for Prettau Zirconium restorations. PrettauLab members are technicians from laboratories from around the country who are dedicated to providing the best solutions for your implant patients.

PrettauLab UK provides monolithic zirconium bridge solutions for implant and natural abutments. The strength of Zirconium can be exploited to the maximum by creating all the functional surfaces without an additional ceramic veneer, this guarantees that NO CHIPPING will occur. We believe Prettau bridges solve the material selection problems for large or wear cases as they offer outstanding longevity, aesthetics and biocompatability.

PrettauLab members Julian Dorey and Jakes Cronje trained in Italy at the ZirkonZahn training centre in the 'Classic' Prettau bridge. We learned the hand milling technique that is the passion of Enrico Steger. His company motto is “Zirconium needs heroes” and we answered that call. Founder member of PrettauLab, Julian Dorey, subsequently developed a new technique specifically for the UK market where the tissue coverage used in the 'Classic' bridge was unacceptable . We are proud to offer the PaTH bridge – Prettau & Titanium Hybrid which combines two materials that together create an almost indestructible bridge for implant restorations including 'All on 4'.
