For Dental 3D Printers That Are Fast, Easy, Accurate and Flexible —

Whether you wish to 3D print bridges, crowns, models, surgical drill guides, night guards or more, EnvisionTEC’s 3D printers combine high-quality 3D printing technology with an industry-leading library of dental materials. Our technology is being rapidly adopted by dentists, orthodontists and dental labs looking to lower costs, provide more convenient patient care and who desire tighter control over treatment plans.

Our systems are being integrated into the digital workflow throughout the global dental industry as CAD/CAM and 3D printing are changing the dental industry at a very fast rate. The success of the digital dental lab implementation relies heavily on:

  • Availability and ease of use of CAD software to design restorations and models from scan data
  • Highly accurate, reliable 3D printers to replicate that data reliably and accurately and
  • A wide variety of materials for a broad spectrum of dental applications.CAD-based dental restorations using

EnvisionTEC 3D printers deliver labor and material cost reduction as well as higher clinical quality and consistency throughout the manufacturing process. Labs need to compete with offshore production. Our low-cost, high-throughput solutions offer the requisite quality to level the global playing field and improve dental lab competitiveness.

EnvisionTEC 3D printing solutions are optimized for a number of materials representing a broad portfolio of dental and orthodontic applications. Whether you use 3Shape, Dental Wings, or any other design software product, a finished product is only a few clicks away.

As software and material upgrades become available, this information is provided to EnvisionTEC customers. We are in constant communication with the R&D teams of the most recognized dental CAD software companies to ensure a seamless workflow that delivers consistent manufacturing quality.

cover1Learn Why Advanced DLP Technology is Better
for Dental 3D Printing

Not all forms of 3D printing are created equal—and that truth is also evident to the visible eye within individual 3D printing processes as well.

Novices may debate whether SLA or DLP is the superior technology. But EnvisionTEC’s team of global engineers — additive manufacturing and software leaders — have developed exclusive, patent-protected processes for 3D printers that deliver fast, smooth and accurate builds, with accuracy down to 10 microns.

In this white paper, EnvisionTEC shares the technical details of why it’s DLP printers are at least twice as good as its competitors when using the same HD projectors.

3D Printers for the Dental Industry

One of EnvisionTEC's best-selling 3D-printers for the dental industry, the Vida is extremely versatile. Perfect for small dental labs or practices, the Vida is capable of printing dental or orthodontic models, surgical guides, partial frameworks, and bite guards.

The UV Light Curing Box for ULTRA 3SP and Xtreme 3SP is a UV light flood lamp for the post-processing of UV sensitive curing resins for industrial, dental, medical, and other applications.

The Vida cDLM is the perfect choice for small dental labs and practices who need a higher resolution 3D printing option with incredible speed capability. Crown and bridge models with removable dies, partial frameworks, and drill guides will all be produced with exceptional fit and surface finish in record time.

The DDDP Plus prints a wide variety of dental applications, including quadrants and dies, drill guides, partials and full arches. This desktop model is an economical choice for small labs in need of versatility.

The Vida Hi-Res is the perfect choice for small dental labs and practices who need a higher resolution 3D printing option. Crown and bridge models with removable dies, partial frameworks, and drill guides will all be produced with exceptional fit and surface finish.

Boasting the highest resolution available in the Vida Series, the C&B model is ideal for the production of extremely precise dental crowns, bridges, and copings in both a castable and pressable material or in an FDA-approved material for long-term temporaries.

The 3-Dent was designed specifically for the production of high-quality crown and bridge models with removable dies. The high precision and excellent surface finish make this 3D printer a favorite among larger dental labs with high production needs. Up to 9 full arches or 34 quads can be produced in each build.

The PixCera Plus is highly suited for the fast production of copings, crowns, and bridges. With high resolution and excellent speed, it is capable of printing up to 20 copings and crowns or up to seven bridges in each build.

The P3 DDP is an economical choice for small dental laboratories and can produce up to 70 copings and crowns in under three hours.

An excellent dental laboratory staple, the P4 DDP can print up to 95 copings and crowns in less than two hours. It is also capable of printing long-term temporaries, partials, and full arch or quad models.

With a medium-sized build envelope among the P4 DDP series, the P4 DDP M adds to the production capacity of dental applications for laboratories. The P4 DDP M is able to print up to 2876 cubic cm (175.5 cubic in.) in a single build.

The P4 DDP XL offers the largest build area in the P4 DDP series, allowing for dental builds up to 4146 cubic cm (253 cubic in.) at a time. Large laboratories will appreciate the flexibility to produce surgical drill guides, dental and orthodontic models, partial frameworks and night guards all on the same versatile machine, with minimal time and effort required to change over between materials and applications.

For those in need of a large build area and a higher resolution of 50 µm (0.002 in.), the Xtreme 3SP Hi-Res is the ideal solution. From prototypes to production parts, the Xtreme 3SP Hi-Res provides excellent surface finish and detail.

The ideal companion for the smaller desktop 3D printing options, the LED Post Curing Unit is a light polymerization chamber for the hardening/curing of light curing resins for jewelry, dental and otoplastic applications.

The Otoflash is a light polymerization chamber for the hardening/curing of light curing resins for jewelry, dental, and otoplastic applications. Two photoflash lamps at the bottom of the curing chamber operate in a work mode with a frequency of 10 flashes per second. The photo-flash lamps produce a very intensive light radiation in a spectrum from 300 up to 700 nm. Because of this intensive light radiation, a better hardening of the materials is possible, resulting in materials with good physical values and reduced content of residual monomer versus using other lamp types with a different light emitting spectrum.
