3D Printing Materials for the orthodontic industry

Flexcera™ is a light-curable resin for the fabrication of high-impact and removable denture bases.

Introducing Flexcera™, a new resin for the fabrication of beautiful, functional dentures with ceramic-like strength. Available as Flexcera™ Smile and Flexera™ Base and formulated exclusively for use with EnvisionTEC™ 3D printers.

Flexcera™ Base is an FDA 510(k) Cleared Class 2 Medical Device indicated for the fabrication of denture bases in dental laboratories for full removable dentures; Flexcera™ Smile is an FDA Class 1 Medical Device for the fabrication of artificial teeth for dental prostheses.

  • Long-chain chemistry provides ceramic-like strength in a bottle
  • 3X more resistant to fracture
  • 2X more resistant to moisture
  • A hybrid ceramic resin with optimal translucency

“3D printing is putting more tools into the orthodontists' hands. ... It changes the practice dramatically because you have a faster turnover time and you have more freedom of movement versus working with an intermediary.”

Dr. Cosmo Haralambidis - Cranston, RI

“In regards to quality, our DDP4 from EnvisionTEC works very well. The prints match the margins on both our stone and printed models with great accuracy. Overall I would say we are very happy with the machine. It has proven to be very reliable, so much so that we now use it as our primary production machine for waxups.”

Don Albensi, C.D.T., Albensi Labs

“Incorporating OrthoSelect and the EnvisionTEC Vida into our indirect bonding procedures has greatly changed the amount of preparation involved. We have scanned and printed our models for several years. The lab time it requires to make your own IDB trays can be quite time consuming. The multistep process can often require several hours. Implementing DIBS has reduced the workload by at least 60 percent. We are now able to 3D print only indirect bonding trays and simply place the brackets in them the day of the initial bonding. It has made us more efficient on a daily basis and freed up so much time to concentrate on patients.”
