Formlabs, the designer and manufacturer of powerful and accessible 3D printing systems, and BEGO, a leading specialist in the field of prosthodontics and implant dentistry, announced a partnership earlier this week, that will allow Formlabs’ dental customers to 3D print temporary and permanent crowns and bridges directly for patients with BEGO’s best-in-class dental 3D printing materials.

The ability to use completely digital dental workflows with 3D printed temporary restorations will enable a rapid, low cost, iterative process that improves patient care and case acceptance rates.

The partnership is a natural evolution of Formlabs’ recently announced Dental Business Unit and Form 3B, which is focused on ensuring all dental care providers can bring an exceptional level of care to their patients.

Dental professionals currently using Formlabs’ Form 3B and Form 2 3D printers will be able to use BEGO resins to 3D print permanent single crowns, inlays, onlays and veneers, and temporary crowns and bridges. This enables dental labs to reduce the cost associated with current crown and bridge fabrication while simultaneously increasing the quality of the end product. The properties of this unique material will offer patients excellent aesthetics, a low tendency to age and discolor, low plaque accumulation, and high comfort due to low cold and heat sensitivity. Both the temporary and permanent 3D printing materials will be offered to Formlabs users in different shades and can be individualized to a high aesthetic result.

Speaking about the partnership, Dávid Lakatos, Chief Product Officer at Formlabs explained, “Directly printing temporary crowns and bridges are one of the most sought after applications from Formlabs customers. By partnering with BEGO and leveraging their 130 years of dental experience, we will be able to not only address this need, but take it a step further by offering 3D printing materials for permanent crowns. We are excited to see how this partnership can continue to advance the dental industry and overcome the major challenges labs and dentists face as digital dentistry becomes a standard for patient care”

BEGO has more than 20 years of experience in developing 3D printing materials specifically for the dental community and is regarded as a specialist in all dental fabrication techniques. With this partnership, BEGO is one of the first companies to join the Formlabs Materials Partner Platform.

The platform is part of the Formlabs Dental Business Unit and enables third-party material manufacturers to work with Formlabs to develop new and exciting resins for use in the dental industry.

According to Axel Klarmeyer, Chief Executive Officer of BEGO Dental, “We could not be happier to partner with Formlabs, especially at this time, where digital dentistry is reaching a breakthrough. It took some time and a lot of effort and commitment of all involved people to be able to offer to the market a fully validated workflow for final restorations. This partnership underlines BEGO’s leading position in the dental 3D printing materials market.”
