The dental industry is especially suited for 3D printing with each set of teeth being unique. One year ago, we released our first dental material, DentalSG, and today we’re excited to announce two more materials for the industry as well as a new software integration.
Dental Model Resin
The new Dental Model Resin is designed for creating crowns and bridges with removable dyes. It’s a high precision, high accuracy resin capable of consistently producing 35 micron tolerances. The smooth matte finish allows you to easily switch from analog to digital model production. Dental Model Resin is available now from our store and for more information on precision and surface quality, check out the new White Paper on Digital Dental Model Production.
Dental LT Clear
Dental LT Clear is a Class IIa bio-compatible material optimized for use as splints, retainers, and other direct-printed orthodontic devices. This high strength, high wear resistance material can be polished to achieve high levels of optical transparency. Dental LT Clear will be available later this year and you can check out the new dental materials page to receive updates.
3D Scanning and model preparation are integral components of a digital dentistry workflow so today we’re excited to announce a new partnership with 3Shape, the global leader in 3D scanning and CAD/CAM software. Dentists can create guides ready for surgery by scanning with 3Shape TRIOS Intraoral scanners, completing the design in 3Shape Implant Studio software, and printing through PreForm.
Coming Soon: 3D Printed Dentures
We’re currently developing an end-to-end workflow for manufacturing high-quality 3D printed dentures. We’re teaming with partner dental labs to validate settings and finalize material properties. Both Denture Base and Teeth Resins will be available in the Fall of 2017.
