Monday, February 28, 2011
GENT, Belgium and REHOVOT, Israel, March 1, 2011 - Remedent (www.remedent.com/) (Gent, Belgium), a global leader in
porcelain veneers and teeth whiting solutions for the cosmetic dental
industry, announced today that it has teamed up with Objet Geometries
(www.objet.com/) (Rehovot, Israel), the innovation leader in 3D
printing (www.objet.com/) for rapid prototyping
(www.objet.com/rapid_prototyping/) and additive manufacturing, to
enhance the fabrication process for dental veneer try-ins and delivery guides
using Objet's 3D printing solutions.
Using Objet 3D printing solutions, Remedent are able to create temporary
clip-on veneers, also known as 'Try in Smile', allowing patients to
realistically evaluate how their final ceramic veneers will look and feel
before the order is placed.
"Using the Objet Eden 3D printing solution, Remedent are now able to
rapidly manufacture high quality customized veneer models and delivery trays
directly from their proprietary design software," said Avi Cohen, Head of
Medical Solutions at Objet Geometries. "Objet's 3D printing solutions provide
dentists with a high level of precision that is otherwise difficult to
achieve using traditional freehand dental techniques. The ability to
perfectly reproduce smooth, finely detailed dental parts in real life;
straight from the CAD design imagery represents a significant leap towards
the age of full digital dentistry (objet.com/dental)."
Guy De Vreese, Chairman and CEO of Remedent NV, commented, "3D printing
technology taps a multi-billion dollar market potential by making the
production of dental veneers less traumatic, less expensive and less
time-consuming for patients, as well as simpler and more profitable for
dentists. By leveraging the capabilities of Objet's 3D printing solutions
worldwide, we can now expand our digital dentistry offering and satisfy the
needs of more customers requesting digitally designed veneers."
