Dental technology firm SprintRay, in partnership with prosthodontics and implant dentistry specialist BEGO Group, has launched SprintRay Crown, a 3D-printable resin that could help improve the quality of restorative care in digital dentistry.

SprintRay Crown is a materials collaboration between the two companies that allows dental professionals to 3D print crowns and other restorations in their offices for a fraction of the cost of other methods.

With high accuracy and a print time of fewer than 60 minutes, SprintRay Crown is poised to improve the accessibility of custom dental care.

'With this new material introduction, SprintRay continues to shape the future of the dental industry, widening the reach and scope of digital technology.', remarked Sumeet Jain, Vice President of Materials at SprintRay. 'By reducing the cost and lead times associated with restorative procedures, we're enhancing dentistry for patients and doctors.'

SprintRay Crown at a glance:

  • Class IIa medical product
  • Outstanding marginal integrity
  • Easy to handle, easy to polish
  • Formulated for radiographic visibility

'Dental 3D printing solutions, especially for durable restorations, are becoming increasingly important. In addition to the excellent material properties and good esthetics, are the low material costs, the speed in production and the customizability of the dental objects that make SprintRay Crown future-proof,' said Thomas Kwiedor, Head of Business Development 3D Printing for BEGO. 'The expansion of the partnership with SprintRay and the introduction of SprintRay Crown will further accelerate this trend.'

SprintRay Crown is a ceramic-filled hybrid material for 3D printing permanent single crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers. It delivers an excellent fit and reproducible results, allowing dental professionals to provide budget-friendly custom restorations confidently.
