3D Printed Dental Appliances and Prosthetics at Chichetti & Patel Dental Wellness

Need dentures or a crown that will fit perfectly in your mouth? We can create it right here in our office! A 3D printer prints not just right, left, forwards and backwards, but also up. It can literally build an object from the ground up. **

In conjunction with 3D scanning and intraoral cameras, 3D printers can create an appliance, restoration, or prosthetic that fits precisely in your mouth and looks as natural as if it has always been there.

3D printers can use the same biocompatible materials a dental lab would use to create a crown, a denture, or other type of restoration in just a few hours. Before, patients had to wait while a lab made the appliance or prosthetic they needed, and it sometimes took weeks from start to finish. Now your dentist can perform an anatomical scan that enables the 3D printer to duplicate exactly want you need in a day.

Save money and get more accurate results? Yes, please!

Not only is 3D printing faster, but it also costs much less than having a dental lab fabricate something for a patient. By cutting out the middleman and making the process entirely digital, many procedures that were once prohibitive due to cost are now accessible, not to mention more precise. 3D imaging and printing allows your dentist to control every tiny detail to ensure the utmost accuracy.
