 Dental Direkt to License Dental Ceramics Coloring Technology from 3M

3M will now license its patented ceramics color technology to Dental Direkt GmbH.

3M recently won a patent infringement lawsuit against Dental Direkt for use of the technology, which enables the coloring of ceramic-based dental restorations, according to a press release.

The technology makes it possible to color unshaded ceramics by color-matching dental restorations to the natural color of a patient’s teeth. 3M has licensed this technology to a variety of manufacturers, including Vita Zahnfabrik H. Rauter GmbH & Co. KG, and Vident Inc., Dentsply Prosthetics U.S. LLC and Dentsply International Inc., Zirkonzahn GmbH, Wieland Dental + Technik GmbH & Co. KG, Ivoclar Vivadent AG, Metoxit AG, and White Peaks Dental Solutions.

3M is open to licensing the technology other interested parties.
