YORK, Pa. & REDWOOD CITY, Calif., U.S.: The past few years have yielded technological advancements for digital denture fabrication. However, the majority of units are still produced using conventional methods. Dentsply Sirona and Carbon are now bringing the first premium printable denture material system to market that will provide significant advancements in terms of material benefits, laboratory process and patient function.

“We’re very excited to team with Carbon to deliver a total seamless workflow for increasing laboratory efficiency and elevate state-of-art materials for removable appliance fabrication in the 3-D dental printing space,” said Julie Mroziak, Vice President of Lab at Dentsply Sirona.

Used with Carbon’s printers and innovative Digital Light Synthesis technology for high-resolution output and high throughput capacity, the new Dentsply Sirona materials will offer new alternatives in terms of strength, esthetics and laboratory efficiencies for 3-D printed dentures. The company boasts over 100 years’ experience in the development of denture materials, as well as extensive expertise in scanning and CAD/CAM software, including globally recognized brands such as Lucitone, IPN and inLab.

“This partnership with Dentsply Sirona is a testament to Carbon’s global vision and mission to enhance the digital ecosystem,” said Brian Ganey, General Manager of Carbon’s Oral Care Business. “Together, we will be able to offer the marketplace a complete digital denture solution that is superior in terms of strength and esthetics. With Carbon as the leading digital manufacturer in digital dentistry and Dentsply Sirona’s global leadership in removable appliances, we can deliver an unmatched offering that benefits both the dental laboratory and the patient.”

The Dentsply Sirona denture materials for Carbon digital manufacturing solutions are expected to become available in the U.S. later this year.
