GENT, Belgium and REHOVOT, Israel, March 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Remedent (http://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 (http://www.objet.com/) (Rehovot, Israel), the innovation leader in 3D printing (http://www.objet.com/) for rapid prototyping (http://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 (http://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."
