EnvisionTEC and AvaDent will ease adoption of digital dentures

EnvisionTEC and AvaDent Digital Dental Solutions announced a new partnership to foster the adoption of digital dentures. Both companies now provide a complete digital workflow solution for digital dentures, from impressions and digital design to try-in and final restoration.

Since 2008, EnvisionTEC provides dental 3D printers to a worldwide market. The company launched a FDA-approved full denture solution for 3D printing in 2017. AvaDent, meanwhile, offers easy-to-use digital denture software and design services to dental professionals, so prosthetics can be quickly manufactured through milling or 3D printing, with more than 100,000 dentures created.

While 3D printing a full denture on our 3D printers is easy, digitally designing a denture can be complicated. That’s why we’re so excited to work with AvaDent, which offers easy-to-use software and delivers a tested workflow to labs and dentists,” said EnvisionTEC CEO Al Siblani.

The strengths of each partner


EnvisionTEC’s FDA-approved E-Denture pink base material and E-Dent 100 and 400 materials that simulate teeth in a variety of shades means laboratories and dentists can now 3D print lifelike dentures with a custom, digital fit directly in their office. When used on a versatile EnvisionTEC Vida desktop 3D printer, dentists can also directly print crowns, bridges, bite splints, gingiva masks and castables.


AvaDent offers a suite of digital denture services including base plates, bonded dentures, monolithic dentures, hybrid dentures, overdentures, pucks and print files. Customers can scan impressions and send the scan files to the company, which designs a digital denture with proprietary Computer Aided Engineering technology and sends the design file to the customer. Dentists and labs can do the manufacturing of the prosthesis on their own mills or 3D printers — or outsource that work to AvaDent.

Benefits of digital dentures

Digital dentures also offer unique benefits. For example, if a digital denture is lost it can easily be recreated within a couple of days using the digital file that was created and stored. AvaDent estimates that more than 40% of new dentures will be made digitally by 2024, with an increasing number being produced directly on 3D printers rather than mills. It is estimated that more than two-third of dental labs already use a 3D printer in their manufacturing processes.
