Dentsply Sirona and Carbon® Launch Lucitone Digital Print Denture Workflow and Material System, Taking Digital Dentistry to the Next Level


Dentsply Sirona, the largest manufacturer of professional dental
products and technologies, and Carbon®, the world’s leading digital
manufacturing company, announced the launch of Lucitone Digital
Print Denture workflow and material system today – optimized for
the Carbon M-Series printers. The partnership brings to market the
first digitally produced dentures with Dentsply Sirona material and
Crafted by Carbon. This system will significantly change digital
dentistry in terms of strength, aesthetics, and laboratory efficiency
for 3D printed dentures.

A new premium digitally printable denture workflow and material system was launched today by
Dentsply Sirona and Carbon. It provides significant advancements in
terms of material benefits, the laboratory process, and function for the
patient. The new workflow and material system establish a paradigm shift
for 3D printed prostheses. Carbon is the only platform validated for
Dentsply Sirona’s Lucitone Digital Print Denture materials which provide
a superior combination of accuracy, consistency, and throughput
compared to traditional dentures. The system is intended to be used in
cases of complete single arch denture over existing dentition (1 arch),
and full-over-full dentures (2 arches).

The new Dentsply Sirona 3D printed workflow with Carbon includes five
core material system products: Lucitone Digital PrintTM 3D Denture Resin,
IPN 3DTM Digital Denture Teeth, Lucitone Digital Try-inTM 3D Trial
Placement Resin, Lucitone Digital FuseTM 3-Step system, and inLab
SpeedcureTM Processing Unit. This material and equipment system is
used as part of a complete digital print workflow that includes cloud-
based traceable printing for each denture, taking digitally printed dentures
to a whole new level.

Complete material system for increased capacity and laboratory

Dentsply Sirona developed this new system, leveraging Carbon printer
technology, that delivers a significant advancement to the industry in
terms of material benefits and laboratory process. The Lucitone Digital
PrintTM 3D Denture Resin enables labs to print up to eight denture arches
in approximately two hours. Dentures made with Lucitone Digital PrintTM
3D Denture Resin resist breakage because its innovative formula
exceeds ISO high impact and flexural strength standards. The proven
Lucitone formulation is manufactured with True Color Technology, for
consistent shade results, and is available in five Lucitone shades. The

Registered brands, trade names and logos are used. Even in particular cases, when they appear without their trademark, all corresponding legal rules and provisions apply.

of labor per appliance.

The Lucitone Digital Print Denture features IPN 3D Digital Denture teeth
along with the Lucitone Digital FuseTM 3-Step system to provide premium
esthetics and IPN durability with a cohesive bond. The 3-step Fuse
process allows technicians of varying abilities and experience to set and
fuse up to 14 denture teeth in less than 12 minutes.

With this new digital workflow, laboratories of all sizes can design a
Dentsply Sirona Lucitone Digital Print Denture and gain the capacity and
throughput that is needed to meet increasing patient demand. The
workflow is simple and easy for labs to integrate into their existing digital

The Lucitone Digital Print Denture was FDA cleared on August 26, 2019
and will be available in the USA as of September 2019 to early access
partners with a full launch to Carbon M-Series users in the USA expected
