U.S.-based dental health and technology specialist Glidewell has announced a new partnership with LuxCreo, a leading dental 3D printing company based in San Francisco. Together, they have unveiled fastprint.io, which is an in-office 3D printing solution for dentists.
The glidewell.io solution enables the fabrication of restorations from zirconia and other materials in just one visit. With luxCreo’s fully integrated solution, dentists can offer more comprehensive treatment options.
“LuxCreo is proud to partner with Glidewell to seamlessly deliver our latest end-to-end 3D printing solution that expands same-day chairside production to more dental applications,” said LuxCreo co-founder and chief revenue officer Michael Strohecker. “LuxCreo is focused on developing and delivering innovative 3D printing technologies, like Digital Polishing™, that provide an exceptional patient experience with faster, more accurate automated workflows.”
The fastprint.io 3D printing solution combines LuxCreo’s innovations with the workflow of the glidewell.io in-office solution.
“Clinicians are looking for simplified, low-labor workflows,” said Robert Brenneise, senior vice president of sales, marketing and education at Glidewell. “That’s why we’re committed to delivering products that are user-friendly, affordably priced and backed by manufacturer-direct support. With LuxCreo’s mission to simplify sustainable production with additive manufacturing, we found a partner who shares our core value of improving the lives of dentists and their patients through digital innovations that make dentistry easier and more effective.”
The fastprint.io 3D printing solution is offered exclusively by Glidewell for $16,990, including 3D printer, starter kit and wash and cure units.
“One of our primary goals with glidewell.io is to make digital dentistry more accessible and affordable to dentists everywhere,” said Jim Glidewell, founder and president of Glidewell. “By adding fastprint.io, we’re building toward a future where every dentist can control their own restorative workflow – bringing value to the practice and patients alike.”
