Providing temproary restorations and provisionals for esthetic work provide your patient with a great temporary solution between treatment approval and final placement. Offering next-day waxup presentations can dramatically increase case acceptance for esthetic procedures and help set patient expectations.
Because they can print in less than an hour and cost only a few dollars in materials to make, you can 3D print provisonals and temporaries a nominal fee, increasing patient access. Plus, rapidly replace broken or lost restorations from digital records, with no need to re-take impressions.
3D print provisionals, crowns, and bridges for patients undergoing treatment. At only a few dollars per part to manufacture, flexibility in fees can help improve patient acceptance. And, because they can be produced in less than an hour, practices can now fabricate temporaries on the same day they're needed.
Final esthetic restorations such as veneers are the result of experienced craftsmen. But your patients don't have to wait for the final product to see the results up close and in-person. With 3D printing, you can fabricate physical, beautiful wax-ups for patient presentation in a matter of hours.
Dr. Fung's High-Speed Wax-ups
Dr. Lawrence Fung's Los Angeles practice was built from the ground-up to leverage digital technologies: intraoral scanning, advanced photogrpahy, and digital design all figured prominently in his daily workflow. Despite this, Dr. Fung was initially hesitant to adopt a 3D printing. But after only a few months, Dr. Fung has leveraged his printer to drastically increase case acceptance for cosmetic procedures, providing intra-oral wax-ups in just 24 hours for most of his patients.

The Power of Dr. Zhivago's 3D-Printed Provisionals
Dr Zhivago uses his SprintRay 3D printer to provide rapid wax-ups for his patients' esthetic and restorative procedures. Thanks to the low unit cost of each set of provisionals, he is able to provide his patients with spares in the case of loss or breakage, which is a huge boon to his world-travelling patient base. Learn how 3D printing is revolutionizing Dr. Zhivago's office in this Practice Insight.
Workflow Overview: 3D Print Provisionals and Wax-ups
Using an intraoral scan and optional CBCT data, you can use 3rd-party software or work with a digital designer to create the digital model for the final restoration. Once you have your design, send one copy to your lab for production and import the other into RayWare to print using the material of your choosing.
Capture DataCapture and record a patient's anatomy using an intraoral scanner or other scanned data.
Design and PlanDesign the appliance using dental CAD software or outsource design to a digital lab and recieve print files.
Print and ProcessPrepare 3D models, print them, and post-process according to requirements.
Place or PresentDeliver temporaries or present wax-up for patient as recommended.
SprintRay Try-InRapidly print monolithic try-in dentures
Digital dentures can reduce the number of appointments required for denture placement. SprintRay’s biocompatible try-in material can be rapidly printed to check bite registration and occlusion of dentures. This material can be printed monolithic or as a baseplate combined with individual tooth setup for maximum flexibility.
SprintRay Die and Model TanHigh accuracy and rich color that mimics stone
SprintRay Die and Model Resin is designed for making accurate, removable dies and various models including orthodontic, study, and models for all restorative applications. The material’s color makes it easy to see fine detail, while its great accuracy allows for tight tolerances for removable parts.
Higher flexural strength ensures that the model doesn't break during normal use.

More Accurate than Stone
A recent university study found SprintRay Pro more accurate and consistent than traditional alginate methods. With an average RMS of 129±16μm for 3D printing compared to 177±25μm for alginate methods, SprintRay Pro is ready to meet the clinical demands of contemporary dentistry
