Desktop Health, the medical 3D printing brand of Desktop Metal, and Asiga, a leading dental 3D printing company, have validated Flexcera Smile Ultra+, Flexcera Smile, and Flexcera Base for use on the Asiga 3D printing platform. Asiga can now offer the formulation to thousands of dental labs and practices that use its 3D printers in the United States, United Kingdom, European Economic Area, and Canada.

Flexcera Smile Ultra+ delivers life-like beauty and strong, long-term performance. This proprietary dental resin has been growing since its 2021 launch – delivering 3D printed permanent and temporary restorations, including dentures, crowns, bridges, veneers, and more.

“We are extremely pleased by the exceptional performance of our Flexcera family of dental resins,” said Lou Azzara, President of Desktop Health. “By expanding access to our world-class solutions, we’re empowering dental laboratories and practices with groundbreaking innovations like Flexcera. Asiga, with its extensive high-quality customer network, takes accessibility in the industry to unprecedented heights.”

Now validated for a wide range of Asiga dental 3D printers, Desktop Health’s Flexcera can be printed on both desktop and production models – such as the Max UV, Max 2, Ultra, and Pro 4K.

“Flexcera is an undeniable leader in the dental market for 3D printed nanoceramics, and we continue to make this popular choice available to other high-powered platforms. We are absolutely delighted to welcome Asiga customers into the Flexcera family,” said Ric Fulop, CEO of Desktop Metal. “Asiga has one of the largest installed bases of DLP printers in both North America and Europe, and we look forward to more customers being able to enjoy the material.”

The first Flexcera family resins validated for Asiga systems are Flexcera Smile Ultra+, an FDA 510(k) cleared Class II material for permanent and temporary, 3D printable dental restorations; Flexcera Smile, an FDA 510(k) cleared Class II material for removable 3D printable denture teeth; and Flexcera Base, an FDA 510(k) cleared Class II material for 3D printable full, removable denture bases.

Flexcera for Asiga is now available for purchase in the United States, United Kingdom, European Economic Area, and Canada.
