EnvisionTEC has been serving the dental market since 2008, when Jim Glidewell walked up to an EnvisionTEC trade show booth and asked: “Can you do teeth?”
Glidwell is the owner of Glidewell Laboratories in Newport Beach, CA, one the single largest dental labs in the US.
Today, Glidewell 3D prints dental prosthetics on nearly a dozen EnvisionTEC printers, both desktop and production models. “Our Perfactory 3D printer from EnvisionTEC allows us to create highly precise wax patterns at a fraction of the time required for a hand wax-up,” Glidwell previously told Dentaltown.
And EnvisionTEC is now blazing the path forward in digital dentistry thanks to three main factors:
Our dental materials 3D print a full range of models (dental and orthodontic), castables (crowns, bridges, partial frameworks), restorations (crown, bridge, full roundhouse, as well as complete dentures) and appliances (surgical guides, bite splints, indirect bonding trays).
KeySplint Soft for EnvisionTEC is a a 3D printing resin ideal for printing splints and night guards.
E-Model HS is a high speed 3D printing material for use in producing orthodontic arch models extremely quickly on EnvisionTEC cDLM 3D printers.
E-SepFree is easy to release when directly building orthodontic appliances as it does not require a separator. It is also easy to carve when hand contouring contact areas, opening interproximals, and much more.
E-OrthoShape is a grey ABS-like material that prints in 100 micron layers. It is recommended for the affordable volume production of models on which to produce clear thermoformed aligners by orthodontic professionals.
A wax-filled photopolymer material for the production of full anatomical crowns and bridges with extreme dimensional accuracy in X, Y and Z, as well as exceptional surface finish.
A castable material developed for a specific need in the dental industry: delivering delicate partial frameworks with thin features and some flexibility.
NextDent Denture 3D+ material is a biocompatible Class IIa material suitable for 3D-printing all types of denture bases.
NextDent Gingiva Mask is a flexible material that can be used in combination with a model material. This makes it possible to print parts of the model that need a certain flexibility, such as Gingiva Masks on implant models.
NextDent C&B Micro Filled Hybrid is a biocompatible Class IIa material developed for crowns and bridges.
NextDent Indirect Bonding Tray is a biocompatible Class I material for orthodontic applications.
E-Model is a tough material, suitable for high quality prototypes of items in categories such as automotive and consumer goods as well as stable enough for production-quality end use parts. It is also the ideal material for dental and orthodontic models.
EnvisionTEC’s E-Guide is a biocompatible certified Class I material, developed for the production of high precision surgical drill guides for use in implant surgery. The results produced by combining E-Guide with EnvisionTEC technology are superior to traditional methods of manufacturing implant placement guides.
A material developed specifically for the rapid production of highly accurate, scannable dental models. Looks and feels similar to traditional gypsum models.
E-Guard is a biocompatible transparent material for the production of accurate orthodontic bite splints and night guards. The results produced by combining E-Guard with EnvisionTEC technology are superior to traditional methods of manufacturing bite guards and night guards. It is a clear material, allowing for maximum visibility.
