Dental 3D printing

Fast, comfortable and quality dental care is increasingly being made possible by 3D printing. This modern and efficient state-of-the-art technological approach to oral health is indispensable to creating outstandingly precise dental restorations, orthodontic appliances, dental models and surgical guides with incredible speed and accuracy. That translates into shorter wait times, better outcomes and greater comfort for our patients.

Applications of 3D printing in dentistry

Veneers: At Simply Teeth, we utilise 3D printing technology to create beautiful veneers which are ultra-thin and precisely tailored to enhance the appearance of your teeth. Our custom veneers provide a natural look and feel, transforming your smile with optimal aesthetics.

Crowns: Experience the difference with our durable and aesthetically excellent 3D-printed crowns. These provide strength and protection to weakened teeth. Since they are custom designed for a precise fit, they ensure optimal functionality, seamlessly blending with your natural teeth.

Dentures: Your comfort is our priority, and our custom-fit dentures are made with extreme attention to detail to ensure a perfect fit tailored to the unique shape of your mouth. We use 3D printing technology to enhance the fabrication process, providing denture solutions that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Implants: Natural-looking and seamless replacements for missing teeth are another great solution made possible with 3D printing. This precision technology can give optimal outcomes as, in addition to creating the implant itself, we further utilise it to create surgical guides for accurate and efficient implant placement.

Clear aligners: If you want straighter teeth, you will benefit from clear aligners. Typically 3D printed, these are a popular orthodontic option that is comfortable, removable and virtually invisible – providing discreet teeth straightening solutions.

Night guards: Sleep soundly with personalised night guards, produced through 3D printing. Comfortably protect your teeth from teeth grinding and jaw clenching with a custom fitted solution which ensures snug and secure positioning. This can be a great way for you to conveniently and effectively contribute to a restful night’s sleep while safeguarding your oral health.

How does dental 3D printing work?

At Simply Teeth, we harness the power of dental 3D printing to create various dental components with meticulous precision. Here’s how we put this innovative technology to work for your unique needs:

1. Digital impression: We start by capturing a digital impression of your oral structures, including teeth, gums, and surrounding areas. Our intraoral scanners and digital imaging devices create a detailed 3D digital model of your unique oral anatomy.

2. Digital design: Your digital impression is then transferred to our dental design software. We use this software to create a virtual model of your dental structure, tailored to your specific needs and treatment requirements.

3. Slicing the model: The virtual model is carefully sliced into thin cross-sectional layers, forming a digital blueprint for our 3D printer to follow. Each layer represents a precise section of the final dental component, ensuring accuracy in every detail.

4. Material selection: We select biocompatible materials suitable for the 3D printing process, ensuring the safety and effectiveness of your dental applications.

5. Printing process: We engage our 3D printing partner organisation to build your final dental component layer by layer, faithfully following the sliced digital blueprint. This collaboration employs various 3D printing technologies, including stereolithography (SLA), digital light processing (DLP) or fused deposition modeling (FDM), depending on the material and application.

6. Post-processing: After the printing is complete, your dental component undergoes post-processing in our care. It is cleaned thoroughly to remove any excess material, then undergoes additional steps such as curing or heat treatment to meet our stringent quality standards.

7. Quality check: Your 3D-printed dental component is subjected to a series of rigorous quality checks. These ensure that it meets our high standards for accuracy and fidelity to the original digital design.

8. Final application: Once your component passes the quality control stage, it is ready to be used for its relevant purpose, as a veneer, crown, denture, implant, clear aligner, night guard, dental model or a surgical guide.
