The field of digital cosmetic dentistry continues to grow and develop. The latest companies to announce a working relationship are Remedent (Gent, Belgium), a leader in porcelain veneers and teeth whiting solutions for the cosmetic dental industry, and Objet Geometries (Rehovot, Israel), a leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing. Together, the companies will offer products and services that enhance the fabrication process for dental veneer try-ins and delivery guides using Objet’s 3D printing solutions.
With Objet 3D printers, Remedent can create temporary clip-on veneers, also known as ‘Try in Smile,” allowing patients to realistically evaluate how their final ceramic veneers will look and feel before the order is placed.
With the Objet Eden 3D printing solution, Remedent can rapidly manufacture high quality custom veneer models and delivery trays directly from its proprietary design software. The 3D printers provide dentists with a level of precision that is otherwise difficult to achieve using traditional freehand dental techniques. The ability to perfectly reproduce smooth, finely detailed dental parts in real life; straight from the CAD design imagery is a significant step towards the age of full digital dentistry.
3D printing technology taps a multi-billion dollar market potential by making the production of dental veneers less traumatic, less expensive and less time-consuming for patients, as well as simpler and more profitable for dentists.
