THE HELPFUL DENTAL LAB
3D DDS - About the Helpful Dental Lab
3D Manufacturing is evolving. The 3D DDS dental lab is leading the charge in that evolution. Equipment is changing. Materials are improving. The final product is becoming exceptional.
3D Manufacturing in dental is getting closer to the patient every day, creating opportunities for labs and dentists alike. Unfortunately, along with these opportunities come some frustrating challenges.
- What kind of printer works with what materials?
- Which software should I use?
- Do I have to hire a Cad/Cam designer to run my prints?
- What happens when my printer stops printing all together?
With over 20 years in the dental industry and pioneering the early versions of the Nobel scanners and CAD/CAM systems we have experienced the good, bad and of course, the ugly that this new technology has brought to dentists and dental labs alike.
As a truly full-service lab we deliver a better product, faster, improving our clients' ROI by lowering remakes and less chair time.
An exciting byproduct of our leadership role in the dental arena has positioned us as an important integrator in the industrial print market.
Your bottom line matters.
