SprintRay Introduces Ceramic Crown 3D Printing Ecosystem

This dental 3D printing ecosystem is designed to equip dental professionals with all of the tools, including hardware, software, and materials.

Digital dentistry solutions and 3D printing company, SprintRay, has introduced its new Ceramic Crown 3D Printing Ecosystem, a complete solution for chairside delivery of ceramic dental restorations.

This dental 3D printing ecosystem is designed to equip dental professionals with all of the tools—hardware, software, materials, and round-the-clock technical support—for efficient chairside crown fabrication, according to a press release from SprintRay.

"Our New Ceramic Crown 3D Printing Ecosystem is the first of a new generation of single-appointment workflows fromSprintRay that will change the way restorative care is delivered to patients," said SprintRay CEO and co-founder Amir Mansouri, Ph.D.

This ecosystem introduces SprintRay’s Ceramic Crown Dominant Resin, which has received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration for the 3D printing of full and partial crowns and veneers. This resin features a breakthrough Ceramic Dominant formulation comprised of over 50% ceramic material.

Using advanced machine learning, the Ceramic Crown 3D Printing Ecosystem features Crown Design Services powered by artificial intelligence (AI), according to the company. The system also includes the SprintRay Pro S Crown Kit, a new compact build platform and resin tank designed to print multiple single-unit crowns. Compatible with the SprintRay Pro 3 3D printer family, this technology reportedly harnesses the power of heat and hard anodized aluminum to deliver crown prints in as little as 10 minutes. Coupled with AI design and fast post-processing with the SprintRay ProCure 2, the Ceramic Crown 3D printing chairside workflow is optimized for complete delivery to patients in less than 45 minutes, the press release stated.
