ROCK HILL, SC and REBSTEIN, Switzerland, Feb. 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, 3D systems (NYSE:DDD) and Saremco Dental SA announced a strategic partnership to accelerate innovation in digital dentistry. This effort combines the power of 3D Systems’ industry-leading NextDent® digital dentistry solution with Saremco’s materials science expertise – enabling dental labs and clinics to treat a variety of indications with precision, unmatched repeatability, productivity and total cost. To facilitate these capabilities, the companies are also announcing the immediate availability of CROWNTEC material for use with 3D Systems’ award-winning system NextDent 5100 state-of-the-art dental 3D printer and software for the production of patient-specific permanent crowns.

CROWNTEC is recognized as a new generation of composite resin that can be used to additively fabricate biocompatible permanent restorations including crowns, inlays, onlays, veneers and artificial teeth for dentures. This CE-marked Class IIa material, which also recently received 510(k) clearance, is offered in a variety of shades to match the patient’s teeth for natural-looking aesthetics. It does not contain any volatile organic compound thus contributing to the excellent biocompatible properties of CROWNTEC. Using CROWNTEC as part of the NextDent digital dentistry solution enables dental labs and clinics to produce these dental devices 30% stronger than those produced using previous generations of crown and bridge (C&B) materials while reducing material waste.

“Our goal is to enable dental professionals to become more efficient and, in doing so, ultimately improve patient outcomes,” said Stef Vanneste, vice president and general manager, dental, 3D Systems. “3D Systems has established itself as the leader in digital dentistry solutions that includes our extensive portfolio of NextDent materials. As we innovate to meet our customers’ application needs, this strategic partnership plays a key role in enhancing our materials portfolio. We have found in Saremco a partner who not only shares our values ​​and beliefs in innovation but also has expertise in digital dentistry. Their CROWNTEC material is a strong addition to our NextDent material portfolio and is an additional step in helping dental professionals improve patient outcomes.

“The pursuit of continuous innovation is our primary goal,” said Franca Schmid, owner and CEO of Saremco Dental. “For more than 30 years, we have specialized in the development of light-cured resins for restorative dentistry. In recent years, we have been able to transfer our extensive know-how in the field of light-curing to 3D printing technology and successfully develop it. Especially with the superior physical properties of CROWNTEC and its wide range of indications, we have taken a new step. We are therefore particularly pleased with the strategic cooperation with 3D Systems, a partner with strong sales and innovation capabilities. In addition, 3D Systems offers the entire digital workflow and thus perfectly complements our resin-focused orientation.

CROWNTEC is available to 3D Systems’ NextDent digital dentistry solution customers in the United States, European Union and certain other markets (subject to regulatory approvals) in five shades including CROWNTEC, SW (faded color) , B1, A1, A2 and A3. CROWNTEC completes 3D Systems’ materials portfolio of 30 unique NextDent resins – the most available from any dental 3D printing materials supplier. The portfolio includes NextDent C&B Micro Filled Hybrid (MFH) – a class IIa biocompatible material developed to create crowns, bridges and temporary artificial teeth. With the addition of CROWNTEC, dental laboratories and clinics now have access to an ideal aesthetic solution for these indications, with the advantage of being able to make permanent crowns.

3D Systems will showcase a variety of applications at Lab Day Chicago 2022. Attendees are invited to visit the company’s booth to learn more about its technology portfolio, including the NextDent 5100, DMP Flex 200, Project® MJP 2500 Plus, ProX® 800, and associated materials.
