LaserMelting / Milling / 3D Printing

Send us your design data through our home page.

Yes, please send us your design file. We manufacture your work using the LaserMelting process in cobalt chrome (CoCr) / titanium or mill it for you in PEEK.

We produce works in titanium using the LaserMelting and milling process. You can find all information in our service overview or in the

respective category on the website.


The alloy has a gold content of 84.2%.

Please only use high-melting ceramics. Pay attention to the CTE value: this is 14.2 for our gold alloy: Veneering ceramics such as Kulzer HeraCeram or Dentaurum Ceramotion are suitable for this CTE value.

We only recommend primary telescopes in LaserMelting gold method.

The material receives a heat treatment after the building process. The oxide firing must be carried out by you before the veneering and is absolutely necessary.

We need a SEPA direct debit mandate from you, as we will charge the orders 5 days after the delivery date.

With the LaserMelting process there are no limits. We can make any kind of prototypes or pieces of jewelry.


We offer you an enormous variety of high-quality zirconia. Our portfolio includes various manufacturers in order to be able to offer you the broadest possible range at attractive prices. So you can get the right material for every situation - according to your wishes and requirements.
Our dental technicians will be happy to advise you on suitable solutions.

Ivoclar only offers some of the 16 Vita shades. We can cover the rest of the colors with our MINDFAB material.

We offer Ivoclar IPS e.max ® ZirCAD MO (medium opacity) in shades BL 1-4. For Ivoclar IPS e.max® ZirCAD LT we offer BL 1-3.

There are numerous zirconias for anterior / posterior teeth, depending on the aesthetic, medical and price expectations of the practitioner and patient.. 
We would be happy to work with you to find the right material.
For example, Ivoclar IPS e.max® ZirCAD Prime and FAB Zirconia 3D are the ideal products for bruxers to protect the antagonist, as they are softer and more antagonist-friendly in the incisal area.
To increase the stability of a bridge, for bruxers, zirconias with a high flexural strength (1150 - 1250 MPa) such as FAB Zirconia ST or Ivoclar IPS e.max® ZirCAD LT / MO are particularly suitable.

We offer you various, high-quality plastics for your individual requirements.

For single copings / bridges up to 16 units:
Vita CAD-Temp® multiColor, Idodentine PMMA and PEEK

For splints you have the choice between translucent (crystal clear and colored) and tooth-colored plastics:
CADdent® PMMA (unlimited oral resistance), Zirkonzahn® Temp Premium Flexible, Dentona® optimill memosplint 

All of our milled plastics and some others (such as PEEK) are mouth-resistant.

All abutments we offer are individually milled from solid and are therefore very close to the original - almost identical. You can find the specific

selection in our service overview.

Our offer only includes custom milled or laser-melted abutments. You can find the specific selection in our service overview. !!!!!

We would be happy to make a partial framework in PEEK for you.

You can download the parameter recommendation in the product category or we will send it to you.

Basically, any material is suitable for snoreguards. Depending on the situation, we recommend the Memosplint material, as this is very flexible and can

hold the teeth wider.

The CADdent PMMA splint is suitable in this case.

3D Printing

Our 3D printed models made of plastic resin (PLA) or corn starch (filament) support you in planning. In order to keep our quality standards, we

currently do not offer you printed splints. The plastic available meets the highest standards, but is not certified for oral resistance.
If you have any questions about the properties of our plastics such as oral resistance, flexibility, etc., we will be happy to advise you.

We can also order the model analogs for you. However, this usually increases the processing time.

The systems are identical to our abutment library. You can see this from the overview of the available implant systems.

We manufacture partial frameworks and prosthetics that you can use as casting molds.

Yes, we manufacture rapid prototypes for both business and private customers.

The individual prices are displayed directly online during the material selection of the order page after you have uploaded your 3D object. Our order page determines and generates the costs automatically based on the geometric dimensions, volume and surface of your virtual data set. Depending on the x-, y- and z-dimensions of your component, which derives its space requirement in the production line, the machine operating costs can be calculated. While the material costs depend on the volume, the expenses for grinding or polishing metallic components result from the surface of your 3D object.

Depending on the material, different maximum component sizes can be manufactured. After you have uploaded your 3D object to the Rapid Prototyping order page, you will see in the material overview which materials your component can be made of. If your component is too large for a material, "not producible" appears instead of the price, including an info button with the maximum possible production sizes. You will find further design information on the info button directly next to the material designation.

Compared to zirconia, aluminium oxide has slightly lower fracture strength and a higher thermal conductivity. In addition, aluminium oxide is harder and much lighter than zirconia due to its lower density. Further, aluminium oxide is easier and more precise to manufacture in the lithography-based ceramic manufacturing, which means that thinner wall thicknesses or cannulations can also be implemented. Furthermore, aluminium oxide is cheaper than zirconia. You can find more information here.
