Carbon delivers a complete 3D Manufacturing solution for the dental market with the announcement of two new partnerships with DENTCA and DREVE. These collaborations help deliver custom products 3D-printed dentures with DENTCA; and gingiva masks and trays with DREVE.
“While 3D printing is not new to the dental market, Carbon provides a complete solution with its partnership approach, enabling dental labs to easily design and manufacture custom, high-quality products for their customers,” said Brian Ganey, General Manager of Carbon’s Oral Care Business.
With DENTCA, a CAD/CAM denture company, Carbon dental customers have access to the first FDA-cleared (Class II) materials for 3D-printed dentures – DENTCA Denture Base II and DENTCA Denture Teeth for Carbon printers. When used together, these two materials produce high-quality, digitally manufactured dentures that any dental technician or operator can easily make without needing traditional denture fabrication knowledge.
The DENTCA Denture Try-in material is also available as part of the solution for temporary fit evaluation before production of the final product.
Through its collaboration with DREVE comes two new dental materials – DREVE FotoDent gingiva and DREVE FotoDent tray for Carbon printers. These materials enable dental and orthodontic laboratories to rapidly 3D manufacture gingiva masks and dental impression trays with Carbon’s technology.
In addition to these new third-party resins, Carbon also partnered with Whip Mix late last year to develop Whip Mix Surgical Guide for Carbon printers. Sold by Whip Mix for use on Carbon printers in the United States, the clear resin is for fast production of dental surgical guides using Carbon’s DLS technology.
The DENTCA and DREVE materials are slated to be available by end of March. The Whip Mix Surgical Guide for Carbon printers is currently available.
