Formlabs today announced two new dental 3D printing materials and upcoming biocompatible materials for 3D printed dentures.

The new materials are Dental Model, a high accuracy resin for crown and bridge models with removable dies, and Dental LT Clear is a long-term biocompatible resin for direct-printing orthodontic appliances such as splints and retainers. The biocompatible materials for 3D printed dentures are both class IIa.

Since Formlabs introduced Dental SG, the first biocompatible resin for desktop 3D printers, the company has experienced tremendous growth in the dental market.

“To date, Formlabs dental users have completed over 150,000 prints, and Form 2 printed guides have been used in more than 10,000 implant surgeries,” said Gideon Balloch, Dental Product Lead at Formlabs.

Formlabs today also announced a partnership with 3Shape, a Copenhagen, Denmark based company that develops 3D scanning and CAD/CAM software for dental practice, to introduce software integration solutions to bring seamless dental 3D printing workflows to the worldwide market. The collaboration with 3Shape follows Formlabs’ distribution agreement earlier last month with Zahn Dental, the laboratory business of Henry Schein, the largest distributor to dental laboratories in North America.
