The conversion of denture manufacturing to printed workflows is accelerating. The next breakthrough is Lucitone Digital IPN 3D Premium Tooth material from Dentsply Sirona. The new denture tooth material enables labs to print-on-demand denture teeth with wear resistance and esthetics expected in premium-level denture teeth.
Today Dentsply Sirona announced the introduction of Lucitone Digital IPN 3D Premium Tooth, the company’s first printed premium denture tooth material for durability and esthetics. The new material features the superior durability of traditional IPN®. It is available in sixteen A-D shades plus two bleach options. The Lucitone Digital IPN material is fully integrated with the Lucitone Digital Print Denture™ System and is validated for Carbon M-Series printers and Asiga PRO 4K and MAX UV.
Lucitone Digital IPN is the latest innovation in printable materials by Dentsply Sirona. It marks the next step towards the migration of removable denture labs to digital workflows, covering full dentures, implant-supported dentures, and partial dentures.
“Since 2017, Carbon and Dentsply Sirona have been working together to offer the marketplace a complete solution for the digital production of removable prosthetics that is not only superior in terms of strength, accuracy, and aesthetics, but can also reduce labor and increase throughput so dental labs can keep up with the ever-growing demand,” says Phil DeSimone, co-founder and member of the Office of the CEO at Carbon. “With Carbon’s top-rated customer support framework and Dentsply Sirona’s global leadership in removable appliances, together we can deliver an unmatched offering that benefits dental labs in their transition from analog to digital. The launch of the Lucitone Digital IPN 3D Premium Tooth material will enable Carbon dental lab customers to reliably produce and deliver premium dentures at scale.”
“The New Lucitone Digital IPN Resin by Dentsply Sirona is incredible. The esthetics, translucency, workflow, OnDemand manufacturing, and customization are simply groundbreaking” says Trà Chambers, Owner at Express Dental Laboratory and Dentsply Sirona’s Key Opinion Leader. “This is definitely a step in the right direction for digital dentistry and digital dentures.”
The Lucitone Digital IPN 3D Premium Tooth material is supported by new highly characterized (HC) libraries, which utilize techniques of light reflection and refraction. Optimized for the Lucitone Digital Print Denture workflow and specifically the new Lucitone Digital IPN material, the HC libraries enable printed denture teeth to feature esthetic textures and translucencies expected in premium-level denture teeth.
