DB Lab Supplies is excited to attend

What does Team DB have in store for you? From retention to 3D printing digital technologies, we invite you to explore a range of materials that not only optimise workflow and enhance patient comfort, but also provide value and reliability for your budget.

Iconic thermoforming materials

For retainers, aligners, bite splints, bruxism guards, and orthodontic appliances, Iconic has the highest performance characteristics to ensure optimum performance of all your thermoformed appliances. Polishing is even taken care of with a range of long lasting, high quality polishing disks to complement the range.

Lisa Mountford, Dental Technician at Eline Orthodontics, Marylebone, says, “I am really happy with the performance of Iconic Lux. It makes the fabrication and finishing of appliances a pleasant process. Lux almost halves the finishing time; removing flash and finishing edges feels effortless. When scalloping, it can be tricky to remove material in between the grooves, however with Lux, it’s easy. The material is more flexible than others I have tried, and I have had no returns from patients so far. Also, when I use it for patients with deep undercuts requiring block out gel on the models, it keeps its integrity when removing the model.”
