Ready to learn more about the strongest material in dentistry?

Natural Looking

Like natural tooth enamel, Prettau Zirconia is translucent. This quality allows your zirconia restoration to mimic the appearance of natural teeth for an incredibly realistic look.

Strong and Durable

Zirconia is highly resistant to cracking, chipping, or staining. It is also non-porous, which makes it stronger and more durable than alternative materials such as porcelain.

Highly Customizable

Dr. Clifford Degel and Dr. Carmen Every-Degel can customize your restoration to complement your surrounding teeth to an exacting degree in size, shape, color, and even texture.

Zirconia, "the latest technology," achieves excellent results.

Our natural-looking zirconia restorations can allow you to take pride in your appearance which can lead to a better overall quality of life. We proudly serve Queens, Long Island, and all of NYC.

Jawbone Density

One of the key requirements for receiving dental implants is sufficient bone tissue. If you have experienced bone loss due to missing teeth, our team can restore your candidacy with a bone graft.

Gum Health

We typically recommend patients resolve any issues with their gum health before receiving implants or full-arch restorations. Healthy gums can help ensure the success of your zirconia bridge.

Overall Health

Since dental implants require surgery, it is important to be free from any health issues which could limit your ability to heal after the procedure, such as autoimmune concerns or uncontrolled diabetes.

What are Prettau bridges made of?

There are many advantages to using Prettau® Zirconia over traditional porcelain. Zirconium has been used in the medical field to make durable artificial limbs for over a decade, and it has made its way into the field of dentistry through its use in the Prettau Zirconia Implant Bridge.

Many dentists support the use of zirconium in dental restorations because it is highly biocompatible, making it safe to use for you and your family. It is the superior choice among the ceramic materials that are used in dentistry today.

Can You Tell the Difference From Natural Teeth?


At Astoria Dental Group, we have invested in computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology. This device allows Dr. Degel and Dr. Every-Degel to craft beautiful restorations from Prettau Zirconia in our office. With our CAD/CAM system we can perform every aspect of your treatment, from implant placement to restoration with a beautiful Prettau crown, bridge, or denture, in our office.

Astoria’s finest! The team here is exceptional – a warm and welcoming staff coupled with highly professional dentists, a husband-and-wife duo who each dedicate three days a week.
