“As was the case with digital RPD’s several years ago, our ability to digitally design a full denture predated our ability to manufacture one," explains Justin Marks, CDT. "Most labs that have gone digital already have access to full denture CAD software such as 3Shape or Dental Wings, but there are currently no materials or products on the market that allow these labs to have complete control over an in-house manufacturing process."

A digital library of 3D tooth models will be made available to all Platinum 3D denture tooth customers. Platinum 3D is available in a completely open architecture format-compatible with any open scanner and CAD software for full dentures and no licensing fees. 

“From the discussions that I have had with other lab owners, labs are hungry for the opportunity to scan and design digital full dentures on their existing equipment and then utilize either a 3D printing or milling solution for the manufacturing output," Marks notes. "Closed architecture formats are a thing of the past, and the introduction of Platinum 3D gives labs flexibility over their choice of scanner, design module and manufacturing method for digital full dentures."

Peter Nagy, Valplast’s CEO comments, "The dental laboratory industry is undergoing significant transformation in markets all over the world. To stay viable, all members of the profession need to embrace technological advancement. Valplast was one of the first to push the limits of restorative convenience in the mid-20th Century. And in the early, 21st we have again assumed a pioneering role in bringing new technology to the arena of removable restoration."
