Carbon, known for its innovative CLIP 3D printing technology, is having quite a busy week. Following an announcement that it was releasing two new software tools for its Digital Light Synthesis (DLS) technology, the California-based company has also reported two new partnerships which will solidify and strengthen its position in the dental market.

To mark the new partnerships, with dental companies DENTCA and DREVE, Carbon has introduced a range of new dental 3D printing materials. In collaboration with DENTCA, the 3D printing company has released DENTCA Denture Base II and DENTCA Denture Teeth, the first FDA-approved materials for additively manufacturing dentures.

According to the company, when the two DENTCA 3D printing materials are used together, it is possible to create “high-quality, digitally-manufactured dentures” with ease.

With DREVE, Carbon has developed DREVE FotoDent gingiva for gingiva masks and DREVE FotoDent tray for dental impression trays. All the new materials are compatible with Carbon 3D printers.

Through its new partnerships, Carbon is aiming to not only establish itself as a force within the increasingly overlapping fields of 3D printing and dentistry but to bolster the use of additive manufacturing in the sector altogether.

Brian Ganey, General Manager of Carbon’s Oral Care Business, elaborates: “While 3D printing is not new to the dental market, Carbon provides a complete solution with a very unique partnership approach, enabling dental labs to easily design and manufacture customized, high-quality products for their customers.”

“Carbon is transforming manufacturing in the dental industry with robust and reliable 3D printers, a wide range of industrial-grade dental materials, and next-gen software that enables all these pieces to work together seamlessly.”

Carbon’s new third-party dental resins are expected to be available by the end of March 2018. The 3D printing materials are also supported by the new Whip Mix Surgical Guide material for Carbon 3D printers. The latter, which can be used to produce transparent surgical guides for dental operations, is already available and was the result of a partnership with dental supply company Whip Mix.
