Announcing Premium Teeth Resin, Approved in the EU & UK for Digital Dentures, Temporary All-on-X, and Temporary Crowns and Bridges

3D printed dentures and All-on-X

Premium Teeth Resin is Formlabs Dental’s newest material, approved in the EU, UK, Switzerland, and Canada for printing natural-looking teeth for digital dentures, temporary full-arch implant-supported restorations (All-on-X appliances), and temporary single-unit restorations including crowns, inlays, onlays, veneers, and up to seven-unit bridges. Formlabs’ first in-house developed tooth-colored formulation is a nano-ceramic filled Class IIa biocompatible material with enhanced aesthetics, superior intraoral mechanical properties, and validated longevity to guarantee optimal clinical performance. 

Premium Teeth Resin, along with a wide portfolio of dental materials, including Dental LT Comfort Resin and IBT Flex Resin, enable users to print an extensive, ever-expanding variety of dental applications. These materials can be used on Form 4B masked stereolithography (MSLA) 3D printers, and Form 3B/+ and Form 3BL stereolithography (SLA) 3D printers with easy-to-use workflows that empower dentists and dental lab technicians to deliver high-quality results in less time.

“We have found the Premium Teeth Resin to be a reliable material in our dental practice. Its accuracy in printing applications, including denture teeth and All-on-X, is noteworthy. Additionally, the material's translucency has been quite impressive, contributing positively to the overall aesthetics. This resin is a valuable addition to our digital workflow.”

Michael Braian, DDS, CDT, PhD, Founder of the Swedish Organisation for Computer Aided Digital Dentistry (SWECADD)

One Market-Leading Material for Denture Teeth, Temporary All-on-X Appliances, and Temporary Crowns and Bridges

The Formlabs Dental team is dedicated to developing materials that support new applications so you can expand or grow your offerings. With Premium Teeth Resin, it’s possible to print denture teeth for digital dentures, temporary All-on-X appliances, and temporary single-unit restorations and bridges, all with one material solution. This means a single Formlabs dental 3D printer can produce an array of solutions without swapping resin tanks or significantly changing post-processing protocol, saving time and resources.

High-Quality Teeth for Dentures

Premium Teeth Resin enables effortless, in-house 3D printing of teeth for full or partial dentures to be used with 3D printed or milled denture bases, and try-in dentures. Reliable, high-quality prints ensure excellent fit and reduced post-processing time for denture teeth with enhanced aesthetics, longevity, easy polishability, and superior mechanical performance. Premium Teeth Resin is compatible with a range of 3D printed and milled denture bases including Formlabs’ Denture Base Resin (manufactured by DENTCA), and Lucitone (a third-party resin).

Temporary Full-Arch Implant-Supported Appliances (All-on-X)

Premium Teeth Resin is a reliable and fracture-resistant material for directly printing temporary All-on-X appliances. This new prosthetic application in the dental portfolio reflects the demand from dentists and dental labs for a high-performance material for fully digitized and streamlined workflows that are compatible with conventional finishing workflows and meet diverse patient needs with ease. This material can be further customized by using characterization kits or composite for the gingiva portion.

Premium Teeth Resin can be used as a high-performance, All-on-X material.

Printing temporary All-on-X appliances in Premium Teeth Resin is faster than ever on Form 4B, with a throughput of nine appliances in 37 minutes, for same-day delivery of temporary All-on-X appliances.

Provisionals: Single-Unit Restorations and Bridges

Premium Teeth Resin can be used to print single units and bridges to partially or fully restore teeth provisionally for all types of clinical situations, from cases needing treatment for a single tooth to complex rehabilitation cases. These include temporary crowns, inlays, onlays, veneers, and up to seven-unit bridges. This new nano-ceramic filled resin is over 60% stronger than Temporary CB Resin and can be used intraorally for up to 12 months.

Using Premium Teeth Resin on Form 4B, it’s possible to print five restorations at 100 μm in 25 minutes, for realistic-looking restorations in a single visit at significant time savings compared to benchmark DLP and LCD printers. Plus, a 3D printed provisional provides multiple advantages over traditional methods including good marginal adaptation and reduced costs and production times.

Why Premium Teeth Resin?

This best-in-class resin allows you to create fully customizable, superior appliances with efficiency and ease. The new nano-ceramic-filled formulation is a market-leading solution combining the optimal balance of intraoral mechanical performance, aesthetics, and longevity. With Premium Teeth Resin, you can easily create natural-looking teeth that are resistant to wear, staining, and abrasion.

“I have been thoroughly impressed with Formlabs Premium Teeth Resin. The material not only has the strength we need for denture teeth and All-on-X appliances, but it also polishes with minimal effort to reveal a natural, lifelike translucency.”

Dr. Christopher Baer, Dentist, Baer Dental

Biocompatible With Superior Intraoral Mechanical Performance

Premium Teeth Resin is a Class IIa biocompatible material. When tested in simulated intraoral conditions (37 °C in water) Premium Teeth Resin was the industry leader for flexural strength and exhibited the most consistency between ambient environment (23 °C, 50% relative humidity) and intraoral conditions compared to competitor materials.

Replicate a Natural Smile

Aesthetics are key to patient acceptance and well-being. The High Translucency (HT) shades of this nano-ceramic filled resin provide a realistic translucency and opalescence. Premium Teeth Resin was rigorously tested to ensure resistance to wear, staining, and abrasion, and maintains its original characteristics over time.

"The new Formlabs Premium Teeth Resin is an impressive new resin combining mechanical properties and aesthetics. I tried it for several applications, the patients were very comfortable with the feeling and the lifelike aspect of the resin due to its natural translucency. The material strength is very interesting, allowing us to make extensive dental prosthesis with a feeling of total security."

Dr. Édouard Lanoiselée, DDS, Cabinet dentaire de Nozay

Available initially in four HT shades, A2, A3, B1, and Bleach, Premium Teeth Resin can also be customized even further with staining kits for realistic, aesthetically pleasing solutions that replicate a natural smile so you can meet diverse patient needs with ease.

Optimal Clinical Performance With Efficient ROI

The Formlabs Dental 3D printing ecosystem empowers dental practices and labs to streamline their workflow while improving clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction. The new Premium Teeth Resin continues Formlabs’ mission to provide superior, affordable, and easy-to-use materials to practices and labs. With a Form 4B 3D printer and 15+ Formlabs Dental materials, you can streamline workflows and seamlessly integrate printed appliances into existing treatment protocols for improved ROI for your business.

Among resins for 3D printing denture teeth, Premium Teeth Resin is the strongest resin in intraoral conditions compared to competitors, yet comes in at a significantly lower cost per part than competitors. For less than the cost of printing one appliance with other materials, you can print two parts in Premium Teeth Resin, making it a cost-effective option that doesn’t compromise on quality. Premium Teeth Resin enables professionals to provide high-quality denture teeth, temporary All-on-X appliances, and provisionals while maximizing ROI.
