Bego expands 3D print options
Further expanding the extensive range of indications for its 3D-printing system, Bego has introduced VarseoSmile Temp, a tooth-coloured composite for 3D printing of temporary crown and bridge constructions for short- and long-term restorations.
Next to CAD/Cast partial denture frames, surgical guides, dental models, individual impression trays and occlusal splints, dental technicians are now able to produce temporary crown and bridge restorations with the 3D printer Varseo S and its precursors Varseo and Varseo L. The wide range of indications of the new tooth-coloured composite (available in A2, A3 and C2 VITA shades) includes 3D printed crowns, inlays, onlays and veneers as well as bridges with a construction length of up to seven units and a pontic with maximum one molar width. Restorations made of VarseoSmile Temp are suitable for the temporary use in the anterior and posterior region as short- and long-term restorations.
‘With our new biocompatible material it is possible to produce aesthetic restorations, which ensure outstanding strength and thus provide a precise and dimensionally stable fit in the patient’s mouth. These are significant advantages in comparison to conventional direct restorations from the dentist,’ explains Olga Marbach, product manager of 3D Printing at Bego. She adds, ‘The temporary restorations can be designed in the laboratory with the help of standard CAM software and subsequently printed. We offer a secure process and the associated process documentation in the form of a material-specific guideline for the production of medical devices.’
The Bego 3D printing system includes a diverse and scientifically proven range of materials, the Varseo S 3D printer, a light-curing device also as well as software tools and a comprehensive service package. It was awarded with the ‘Best Of’ seal of the Industrpreis in 2017 for the third consecutive year. FurthermoreBego impressed the jury of the German business magazine WirtschaftsWoche with the Varseo S in 2017 and secured a place among the top 50 most innovative German medium-sized companies.
