3D printing is the catalyst for digital dentistry. It’s known for reliability and high quality. Much has changed since the first desktop 3D printers became available to the dental industry. A few years ago, 3D printers were only affordable to the largest dental labs, now they are a common sight in labs and practices of any size. Dental 3D printers feature a light or laser that polymerize a liquid with the computer-guided precision required to produce small objects with intricate details.
Collect a digital impression with an intraoral scanner. Send the scans to a lab or to a design station.
Import the digital scan into design software (CAD) and design.
Once designing is complete, import the file to print preparation software for print setup.
Wash, dry and post-cure printed parts.

Dental 3D printers can produce applications such as:
Today, three 3D printing technologies are common in dental: stereolithography (SLA), digital light processing (DLP) and material jetting. Each technology can deliver the precision and accuracy needed for dental applications, but quality can vary among different machines and systems.
Dental 3D printers can start at a few thousand dollars for resin desktop 3D printers (SLA or DLP) ot up to tens of thousands of dollars for metal 3D printers designed for direct production. Some manufacturers only make dental 3D printers while other have developed specific dental product lines.
Entry-level desktop SLA or DLP 3D printers start around $1,000 and can be used to produce molds using a special casting resin. Industrial-grade dental additive manufacturing systems can cost up to tens of thousands of dollars. Dental 3D printers’ prices vary based on several factors:
