Zirkonzahn shade guides

With the new Zirkonzahn Shade Guides, the patient's tooth colour can be precisely determined on the basis of monolithic sample teeth made of zirconia. In this way, it is possible to determine the most suitable Prettau Dispersive® zirconia material in a safe and quick manner. The colour spectrum is inspired by the VITA classic range, comprised of 16 dentine colours (A1-D4) and 3 bleach shades. The sample teeth are monolithic and glazed with 3D Base Glaze.

Colour theory shows that shape and surface structure considerably influence the colour effect. Striving for perfection, the shade guides are built using Prettau Dispersive zirconia materials, in the shape of a premolar as well as lower and upper incisor.

One-to-One Function: If the material of the shade guide and the material of the zirconia prosthesis are identical, it is ensured that the colour of the zirconia restoration corresponds 1:1 with the natural tooth colour of the patient. For individualists, the shade guides are also available with minimally reduced, sintered sample teeth (minimal cutback), which can be further characterised by the application of different incisal materials. This results in truly unique shade guides that precisely reflect individual approaches and aesthetic demands.

For the dental practice, it is recommended using the specially developed Zirkonzahn Shade Guide Prettau Line in the shape of a premolar as well as a lower and upper incisor (also with minimal cutback for individual characterisation), to identify easily the natural tooth colour on the patient.
