EnvisionTEC receives FDA approval for E-Denture 3D printing material

Dentures made from E-Denture and E-Dent 3D printing materials

EnvisionTEC has received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for its E-Denture 3D printing material. E-Denture has been developed for the printing of pink, lifelike denture bases on EnvisionTEC’s Perfactory and Vida production printers.

Used alongside the company’s FDA-approved E-Dent 100 and E-Dent 400 materials for the 3D printing of tooth restorations—specifically bridges, crowns and veneers—E-Denture enables EnvisionTEC to offer a ‘complete ‘digital denture workflow solution’.

Dentists and dental labs can combine a 3D printed denture base and tooth restoration for a full denture that patients can use long-term. Furthermore, E-Dent materials are available in a choice of four natural shades.

EnvisionTEC already offers a number of materials for the printing of various dental parts on the Perfactory and Vida production 3D printers, namely:

  • E-Model and E-Appliance for dental and orthodontic models;
  • Pre-E-Cast and E-Partial for castable crowns, bridges and partial denture frameworks;
  • E-Guard for bite splints or night guards;
  • Clear Guide and E-Guide Tint for surgical guides;
  • E-IDB for indirect bonding trays used in orthodontic bracket placement; and
  • E-Gum for flexible gingiva masks.

Al Siblani, the chief executive officer of EnvisionTEC, commented: ‘This new material expands EnvisionTEC’s already industry-leading dental materials library. Even more importantly, E-Denture gives our 3D printer owners the ability to print even more materials.’

E-Denture is to be available for limited distribution in Q3 2017.
