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).
E-MFP (Metal Free Partial) is a revolutionary dental material able to be used in the production of ready-to-use partial denture. No need for casting and assembling, dental professionals will be able to create the entire partial, including the framework and built-in teeth in a biocompatible 3D printing material with incredible strength and flexibility. The balance between inorganic fillers and the resin give the material its high strength and wear resistance. E-MFP is easy to finish and polish, and can be stained with all types of composite staining kits to blend perfectly a beautiful and natural aesthetic.
E-Denture Pro is a breakthrough 3D printing material for use in producing denture bases for complete digital denture solutions. E-Denture Pro provides incredible strength and pleasing aesthetics.
E-Dent1000 is a biocompatible 3D printing material for use in producing high quality monolithic dentures and try-ins as well as outstanding fully digital dentures when fused with E-Denture Pro.
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.
E-Tray is a 3D printing material for use in producing individual customized impression trays.
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 Beige printing material for DLP and cDLM 3D printers is the perfect choice for orthodontic models for thermoforming aligners over.
E-Model Light DLP printing material for DLP and cDLM 3D printers is the perfect choice for a wide variety of high-accuracy dental modeling needs.
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.
