In many of the dental treatments offered in a dental clinic it is necessary to manufacture a product/prosthesis tailored to the patient. For this purpose, the clinic works with licensed dental healthcare manufacturers.

 

 To manufacture any customized dental product it is necessary to replicate the patient's mouth, traditionally through physical impressions in plaster, but thanks to dental intraoral scanners it is now possible to digitize the patient's mouth at the clinic and send the data in order to manufacture products in a personalized way using 3D printing. This flow increases the clinic's productivity by saving time and achieving higher-quality treatments for the patient. This is a great transformation!

 

After going through the 3DIncubator, a high-tech incubator promoted by the CZFB and Leitat with the support of the FEDER Fund via the Incyde Foundation of the Spanish Chambers of Commerce, we decided to create our licensed healthcare centre, completed a round of seed funding and are now manufacturing and delivering finished products for dental clinics.

 

The previous incubation stage has been fundamental. Today we have a development and consulting team of five engineers who are experts in manufacturing, software and 3D printing, a dental technician with over 15 years of experience in dental manufacturing, and we hope to add two more dental technicians this year. Thanks to 3DFactory Incubator we have been able to experiment with the most advanced additive manufacturing technologies on the market and develop optimal manufacturing processes for custom-made dental products.

 

Smileep Dental Lab is a dental laboratory, expert in digital flow, where we produce Invisible Orthodontics, Occlusal Splints, Retainers and Surgical Guides, among other products. We manufacture high-quality products in Barcelona (Spain). We deliver Discharge Splints in 48h and Invisible Orthodontics in 4-7 days, depending on the treatment. Half the time vs. our competitors!

 

Patients are beginning to value the dental clinic more highly than brands of treatments such as Invisalign; they are more informed and want to know the digital skills of the doctor who is treating them. We help clinics transition to digital workflows. Our platform also has a 3D viewer (3D simulator) which is very useful for the dentist to explain the treatment and improve clinical acceptance.

 

For dental clinic groups, we can help them launch their own brand of patient-focused dental treatments; we can manufacture in volume and ship directly to the clinic with customized packaging. We have the support of leading dental design companies such as 3Shape to scale as needed.
