In the past few years, 3D printing has drawn the attentions of dentists and dental technicians. The technology evolved so fast that many users cannot catch up the latest development of this new technology. In addition, the demand for the 3D printing materials grows rapidly. In view of this, our team started to explore the possibility of developing 3D printing materials for dentistry, including the development of the surgical guide resin, custom tray resin, dental model resin, temporary resin and denture base resin. In this talk, we will talk about the principles of dental 3D printing from a materials perspective. The composition, properties, shrinkage behavior, post-curing behavior of the 3D printing resin will be addressed.
