Distinguished Lecture Series
Additive manufacturing advances are rapidly changing the way many industries design and manufacture products. In the dental industry, Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) digital 3D printing—also known as Carbon Digital Light Synthesis™—gives dental labs the ability to print accurate, high-quality dental products up to 10 times faster than traditional methods such as milling. Digital design and high-volume production capabilities are joined with improved materials, resulting in the industry’s first fully integrated digital manufacturing platform for dental and orthodontic labs, enabling improved workflows and products including thermoforming aligners, dental and orthodontic models, night guards, surgical guides, and dentures.

Learning Objectives
  • Learn how Carbon's DLS technology works to produce 3D printed parts
  • Learn about the material properties and strength of the printed prostheses
  • Learn about the benefits of 3D printed night guards and dentures vs. traditional acrylic for clinicians and patients
