RAPID CITY, S.D. (October 30, 2023) – B9Creations, a global provider of 3D printing solutions, announced its limited dental market release—introducing a new 3D printer, called the B9 Dent XL, with the larger-format B9 Dent Lab 3D printer slated for release in the near future, as well as an initial material offering with a diverse range of resins in development for future release. The company has built feedback from real dental technicians into the entire solution—from intuitive, dental-specific CAM software to high-performance materials for a wide range of indications, all the way through automated post-processing units.
After nearly a decade of experience serving the dental industry as a technology partner—where B9Creations has deployed patented technology in thousands of white-labeled, regulatory-compliant, turnkey 3D printing solutions with customized hardware and software—the company is now taking a direct approach and seeking customers and new partners to join the limited market release.
“Our journey has always been defined by our ability to create customized solutions that solve problems others won’t tackle. For the past 7+ years, B9Creations has served the dental industry as a technology partner. We’ve seen the needs and frustrations of customers who need robust, dependable equipment assembled in the USA and backed by a company that defines our success as the customer achieving their goals rather than simply closing a sale. B9Creations brought workflow innovations to the jewelry industry that eliminated complexity by going directly from design software to print and eliminating CAM, which enabled the first large-scale retail deployments of Additive Manufacturing. These same innovations can break down the barriers of complexity that create workforce headaches and hinder the profitability of AM chairside. In industries from aerospace to medical device, we’ve been at the forefront of volume production with AM in some of the most dimensionally-demanding applications,” said B9Creations CEO, Shon Anderson.
“We’ve recognized the struggle in getting dental technicians up to speed quickly, and when you add in turnover and labor shortages, going digital in dentistry can be a challenge. So, with one of our dental partners, we developed dental-specific CAM software with input from senior dental technicians, including their feedback in the language, functionality, and visual interface of the software—and then condensed the workflow to just three clicks, with intelligence built into the layout, orientation, and supporting functions based on indication. This meant they already knew the functionality, as it looked like a dental CAD program, and the software took care of the rest. Now, we’re seeking other opportunities for companies who want to offer that type of value internally and to their customers,” added Anderson. "For dental companies seeking to provide a differentiated offer and build value into your own products and services leveraging AM, B9Creations can create private-labeled offerings that integrate with your own software, hardware, and other products to provide your customers assurance of results that selling the same off-the-shelf printer as your competitors can’t deliver. Starting now, there’s a better option for Additive Manufacturing in dental."
Whether you’re aiming for same-day chairside solutions, enhancing patient engagement with visual aids, optimizing lab production, or preparing the next generation of dental experts, the B9 Dent Series streamlines workflows, reduces lead times, and enables you to produce customized solutions with speed and efficiency. B9Creations 3D printers deliver unbeatable ease of use, precision, and repeatable performance.
