3D Print High Quality Splints: Dental LT Clear Resin (V2) Is Now Available in Europe
Formlabs Dental is pleased to announce that our Dental LT Clear Resin (V2) is now available for the European market (EU and the UK). This material is compatible with the Form 3B+, Form 2, and Form 3BL.
Two years ago, we announced a second formulation of our industry leading long-term biocompatible material for directly printing affordable, high-quality occlusal splints in-house. At the time, this material was only available in the United States. After extensive testing and regulatory approvals, our store is stocked and shipping Dental LT Clear Resin (V2).
Dental LT Clear Resin (V2) is an MDR certified Class IIa medical device. Formlabs Dental is proud to offer the highest quality and rigorously tested materials so dental labs and practitioners can deliver market-leading quality dental appliances to their patients.
How to 3D Print Occlusal Splints and Orthotic Appliances
Join our free webinar with Dr. Sahand Zomorrodian and Dr. Elisa Praderi to learn about the how and why to adopt 3D printing and the step-by-step workflow to produce occlusal splints and orthotic appliances with the Form 3B and Dental LT Clear Resin (V2).
What is Dental LT Clear Resin (V2)?
Dental LT Clear Resin (V2) is color-corrected to print clear splints that can be polished to high optical transparency and resist discoloration over time, for a finished pre-fit appliance that will delight your patients. The second formulation of this material, the one now available in the European Union and the United Kingdom, is highly durable and resistant to fracture for creating appliances that can more easily withstand the daily use and accidental drops by patients. Formlabs Dental has seen significant success with Dental LT Clear Resin (V2) in the United States since it launched in 2020, and expects to see similar results in the European market. We will continue to offer Dental LT Clear Resin (V1) in our store and through partners, but have upgraded our original formulation across the board to offer superior performance. We encourage dental professionals to try the new formulation in their existing workflows to see the improved performance firsthand.
After testing the new Dental LT Clear Resin (V2) from Formlabs, I am impressed with the improved resiliency, strength, and clarity of this resin. These factors will definitely have a positive impact on patient comfort and acceptance. Great job Formlabs for constantly achieving the highest levels of quality with your products.

The ability of Formlabs and Formlabs Dental to develop biocompatible materials in-house means dental labs and practitioners can rely on secure supply chains and high-quality, consistent first party materials. The retail price of the new resin has been reduced by roughly 12.5% (varying by region), allowing you to manufacture splints at an even more competitive price.
