HELSINKI, Finland: Planmeca is thrilled to announce a strategic cooperation with BEGO, a renowned pioneer of CAD/CAM technology with more than 20 years of experience in the field of 3D printing. The combined expertise of both companies has made it possible for the cutting-edge materials developed by BEGO for printing dental restorations to be successfully validated for the Planmeca Creo C5 dental 3D printer.

With the validation of VarseoSmile Crown plus, VarseoSmile Temp and VarseoSmile Teeth, Planmeca Creo C5 users can now offer their patients a cost-effective solution for same-day dental restorations which fulfil the highest quality standards. In addition to elevating patient care, these materials help dental professionals streamline their prosthetic workflows and manufacturing processes.

Planmeca Creo C5 users will benefit especially from VarseoSmile Crown plus, the world’s first 3D-printing material for permanent restorations. The ceramic-filled and medically approved 3D-printing resin allows the manufacturing of high-quality single crowns, partial crowns, crowns on abutments, inlays, onlays, tabletops and veneers. The durability of these restorations has been proved in extensive scientific studies.

VarseoSmile Temp offers a medically approved resin for manufacturing temporary crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays and veneers. With VarseoSmile Teeth, Planmeca Creo C5 users can create highly aesthetic teeth for complete and partial dentures. Both of these ceramic-filled materials ensure high resistance to abrasion.

“I am extremely pleased with our collaboration with BEGO, which now makes same-day restorations available to an even broader range of patients worldwide. Planmeca Creo C5 has been specifically designed to meet the needs of modern dental practices and laboratories, providing a powerful tool for printing a wide range of high-quality dental applications precisely and efficiently,” said Pontus Degerlund, CAD/CAM director at Planmeca.

“With the validation of BEGO’s leading 3D-printing materials for dental restorations, our printer enables dental professionals to produce all necessary components for their treatment workflows and achieve outstanding results every time,” he continued.

Marius Kempf, senior product manager for 3D printing at BEGO, commented: “Our leading 3D-printing materials adhere to the highest quality standards, enhancing the quality of patient care and improving the efficiency of manufacturing workflows. We are delighted that these materials are now available to the users of Planmeca Creo C5 in a validated workflow.”

He said: “I am particularly pleased that this also includes VarseoSmile Crown plus, which stands out due to its clinical longevity, excellent translucency and overall aesthetics.” He added that many scientific publications had verified this outstanding performance and stated: “We are eagerly looking forward to a future collaboration with the companies and distributors of Planmeca Group.”

Planmeca Creo C5 has been engineered to withstand the daily workloads of even the busiest dental clinics and laboratories. All printing materials for Planmeca Creo C5 undergo rigorous mechanical testing and evaluation. Additional tests are performed on the materials requiring medical approval.
