3D Printing Dental Clear Aligners

In-office fabrication of clear aligners using 3D printed models.

Offering clear aligners in-office allows you to give patients the treatment they want at a price they can afford. This application also allows you to maintain your margins without compromising in quality. Using dental CAD software, you can easily design their treatment plan and then execute the printing of models that are not only useful for fabricating aligners, but also for demonstrating progress to your patients.

Once known as a costly alternative to traditional bracket-and-wire orthodontics, 3D printing enables you to fabricate clear aligners quickly and at a fraction of the price of other methods.

Bleaching Trays

Producing a bleaching tray at any stage of the orthodontic treatment plan is as simple as doing an additional suck down on one of the ortho models. This is a quick and cost-saving way to add value to your practice.

Workflow Overview

With 3D printing, you can have as much control over the process as you’d like. Use 3rd party software to plan the whole treatment plan yourself or use a service provider and simply perform a clincheck and approve. It’s up to you as a clinician if you’d like full control or to be hands-off.
