Our company, Dent-Art-Technik Ltd. is busy in the manufacture and trade of state-of-art medical aids for more than 30 years. In our instance the term “medial aid” predominantly means the manufacture of various dental products and dentures. The firm was established in April 1992, by János Kónya, senior dental orthodontic technician with the goal to set up a dental laboratory which can render for its partners at very high standards the full range of services such facilities usually offer.
We make our products from high quality, raw materials with up to date and cooperatable technologies wich are based on each other. We are capable of doing all of the worksteps. Our machines of European standard and our gaguges enable the application of modern technologies for every kind of products. Our products range from of the denture, tooth regulation, press ceramic, fixed prosthetics, implants, and all of the products of dental technican, serving the customers of the neighbouring countries.
„We belive that employing suitable, highly-qualified and dedicated technicians is the key of our success and also using up to date raw materials and continously improving technologies at the same time.”
Certificates and awards
In 1998 the MSZ EN ISO 9001: 1996 system standard was leaded in by our company. The Dent-Art-Technik was first who use this system one of the all Hungraian Dental Laboratory. This system coordinated the operation of the company. After several successful renewal audits, we have revised our quality system according to the new MSZ EN ISO 9001: 2015 system standard.
One of the main goals of our company is to meet the ever increasing quality requirements, therefore besides the above-mentioned quality system, several of our products and production processes are CE certified. Such products or processes for example our titanium mesh, our bone block, our 3D printing from titanium and cobalt chrome etc.
We are proud of it and we are pleased that our work is recognized by the profession. In recent years, our company has won the Hungarian Quality Product Award with seven products. Due to the continuous development and innovative activity of the company and the new dental technology solutions, in addition to the seventh Hungarian Quality Product Award, we also won the Hungarian Quality Product Award - Merit Award For The Economy in recognition of our professional work. In 2016, at the Dental World International Dental Exhibition and Conference, one of the largest dental events in Central Europe, we received the Hungarian Dental Awrads - Lab of the Year Award. In addition to these, we are proud owners of many other professional recognitions. Among them are the multiple Imre Földvári Prize and the Professional Award of the Innovation Exhibition and Invention Fair in Győr. Futhermore we also won the Value and Quality Award twice.
We are proud of our Cad Cam system, which we have used for several years. We were among the first laboratories to have this system in Hungary. Gypsum pattern, prepared on the basis of the impression, is scanned and after the information has been processed by a computer, the frame is fabricated by computer controlled diamond milling heads from blocks prefabricated in a closed millling area (see “Materials”), which, after filtration, are veneered with ceramic to produce the final form.
We were among the first in Hungary to have Cad Cam technology, and are proud of many years of experience obtained therewith. Nowadays there are lots of laboratories, offering Cad Cam technology, but if we have an in-depth investigation of the topic, we can see that lots of systems are called in this way on the market, but not all of them are proven. Only that technology can be called Cad Cam, where design and manufacturing are completed with the aid a computer. Pre-moulded and scanned techniques are called „key cutting” by the professional slang. We have used real Cad Cam from the very first moment, which, owing to the ongoing development of computer technique and our system programs becomes more and more user-friendly and up-to-date.
Galvanization – ion migration serving dentistry
For further details about the procedure, please read “Materials “. What provides the opportunity of galvanisation for our laboratory? In addition to replacements fabricated with this technology, it is possible to create silver-galvanic surface on the pattern of technical fillings, inlays and onlays. Its importance lies in that it is harder than the highest quality dental gypsum, more resistant to fracture, and the surface is better resistant to wear, and more precise fit can be achieved with works prepared on the basis of such patterns. It is also possible to cover metal part of metal plate type prostheses with galvanic gold coating. There may be esthetic reasons thereof, when a thin gold layer is applied on the metal plate, accordingly it involves less costs. In the course of time it might be necessary to restore this layer, and it can be easily and quickly replaced.
There may be esthetic reasons thereof, when a thin gold layer is applied on the metal plate, accordingly it involves less costs. In the course of time it might be necessary to restore this layer, and it can be easily and quickly replaced.
There may be medico-biological reason for applying gold-galvanic layer, too. Some patients have allergy to nickel-free metals. Allergy caused by gold occures extremely rarely, as against to nickel-free medical metals, its strength is lower than that of the other medical metals, the price thereof, however, is higher. With the help of thick gold-galvanic surface, metal can be moulded from precious metal-free medical metals (its strength is higher), the weight thereof can be reduced (it is especially important in case of replacements in the upper jaw), and the price thereof is lower than those including cast gold plate
Galvano-plasty – different way by DC
Details of the procedure are to be seen in menu “Materials utilised “.
We have a Solaris galvanic machine in our laboratory, huge benefit whereof is that at a time 16 galvanic patterns can be attached, even in case the aim is to achieve different layer thickness, as each of them can be individually controlled by a computer. Therefore in case there are a few works prepared at the same time,
Laser welding – We believe in laser ray
Laser soldering is a rapid and safe procedure, which can be utilised in dental technique in versatile manner. From the point of view of patients it is very important that it expedites our work, thereby reducing the period of time while replacements are prepared.
Our partners engaged in jewellery industry or optics, often utilise the possibility of laser welding.
Laser welding – With the velocity of light on the way of welding
Laser welding equipment is not cheap, but it is very versatile. This is why we invested in a laser welding equipment, which facilitate our work, certain replacements can be prepared more rapidly. Although it cannot replace the conventional soldering methods in each case, it has a lower error limit than this latter one, it is accurate, safe, and allows for many repairs, which cannot be performed with any other method, and in this way we can avoid to prepare again a replacement.
Soldered surface can be polished with the laser welding device, and there is no need for any special after-work.
Deep drawing – Simple technique, versatile utilisation
Deep drawing is a procedure, based on a simple idea, yet it can be utilised in many areas of dental technique. Warmed up, soft foil is pressed on the mould with condensed air, which after cooling down, will have absolutely accurate dimensions and will be shape stable.
Foils of manufacturers have various range of colours and strength, subject to the field of application.
Deep drawing – Undeservedly forgotten
Many labs disregard this simple method – maybe looking as if that of the „stone age” -, yet its advantage is exactly its simplicity.
Owing to clever development it can be utilised in various fields of dental technique, e.g. prosthetics, metal technology, implantology, orthodontics. There is slight possibility of errors, with experience, which can be attained within a short period of time, favourable outcome is always guaranteed. Our manufacturer partner Erkodent ensures superior quality. More details can be found in menu „ Materials”. In many practices the possibility of deep drawing is not dealt with, yet it is worth using it!
Metal casting without metal from ceramics
This technology, primarily having esthetic values, is an extremely interesting and remarkable procedure, in the course whereof the core of the final replacement is moulded from wax, then, similarly to metal casting, it is embedded, baked and the honey-like liquid, live glass ceramic mass, especially developed for this purpose, is pressed into the negative mould with the help of a special oven. After taking out and cleaning the produced transparent ceramic core is then veneered with its own veneering material, thereby allowing for producing layers of various shades and transparency, featuring natural teeth.
Press ceramic – Chapters about beauty
From among metal-free technologies, it has the most natural affect, and it is preferred by our dentists most frequently for especially esthetic restaurations. In Hungary we were one of the first laboratories to deal with pressed ceramic inlays, onlays, veneers, gathering lots of experience, from moulding upto final workmanship. The head of our company has delivered many lectures, practical exhibitions and courses about this topic. We have compiled considerable volume of documents with photos, about various cases. It is to be mentioned hereby how important we find to implement good communication between a practice and the laboratory. In cases where esthetics is of outstanding importance, patients are often invited to our laboratory, or the technicians visit the practices at a preliminarily fixed date.
Nowadays, the development of 3D technology is increasingly demanding more perfect and exact products. The manufacturing process developed by Dent-Art-Technik is based on the print & mill process which based on 21st century technology. During production, they are virtually designed, printed in an additive way, geometric checked and identified, and precision post-processing. In contrast to the casting process used so far, the metal printing technology of the finished product has a more homogeneous material structure, more productive production and a more predictable end result. Thanks to the technology used, the consumption of raw materials per unit of product is minimized and the consumption of auxiliary materials is significantly reduced.
We use digital models to create 3D printing objects, and we use these digital models in the STL extension. The devices in the lab uses LMF (Laser Metal Fusion) technology. LMF technology is used to produce complex metal parts from metal powder. Complex internal structures can also be created using the LMF process. The laser melts the metal powder from layer to layer to form the desired contour. Products made with LMF technology are pre-product only, they require precision post-processing either manual or mechanical.
The specialty of the Dent-Art-Technik Ltd. metal printer is that in addition to its widespread CoCr printing, it is capable of printing titanium, which is used almost daily by the laboratory, and is also suitable for gold, silver, steel, bronze and aluminum.
In addition to printing metals, 3D printing of plastics, also known as polymers, can be found in our lab. This allows you to print a variety of medical aids. For example drill template, custom spoon, bite correction devices, plastic models for orthodontic rails, study and section models, and so-called "moke up" trial models.
Our services / products
The fixed replacements we manufacture are produced from titanium (Ti) and cobalt chrome (CoCr) raw materials by 3D printing with LMF (Laser Metal Fusion) technology using the most modern and innovative technology. However, casting technology (titanium, gold) is still available in our lab. The fixed replacements with ceramic and plastic veneer are available on request.
In addition, it is possible to prepare metal-free prostheses as well. The raw materials for metal-free fixed prostheses are polymers (PEEK, PMMA), composites, zirconia, conventional pressed ceramics, lithium disilicate etc.
Fixed replacements can be requested with ceramic and plastic covering.
Combine replacements is a combination of so-called fixed and removable dentures.
The fixed part, i.e. the crown or bridge, is fixed to the existing teeth by gluing. The removable part is anchored to these teeth. Removable element means a partial denture made of metal plate. This so-called fine mechanical elements fixed to the bridge or crowns. Removable dentures can also be made of metal and plastic.
Combined dentures are needed when fixed prostheses, such as implant preparation, are out of the question due to fear of surgery, insufficient bone volumen, or existing underlying contraindications.
This type of denture is firmly fixed, there is no lateral movement. The connection between the removable part and the fixed prosthesis is fixed by means of a solution with staples or fine mechanical elements (sliders). The advantage of the latter over normal clamp is that the fasteners are not visible. Dentures made of metal plate are smaller in size than traditional prostheses, which not only makes them much more aesthetic, but also has much less weigh with on everyday life, sound formation, taste perception, and comfort.
With the speard of implant prosthetics, the role of the dental application of virtual design has increased.
This necessitated the combined use of additive and subtractive manufacturing processes.
The precision manufacturing technology we use allows for the exact precision surface fit between the implants and the denture.
The prosthesis means the dental prosthetics. This means replacing missing teeth in dentistry.
Two groups are distinguished, the fixed and removable dentures.
These can also be combined, giving you two more groups of full removable and partial removable dentures.
An inlay is a so-called glued tooth filling, solid porcelain inlay, which is we made individually based on the impression. Inlay dental fillings are used primarily in the construction of a molar tooth.
In the event that the hole is so large that, in addition to the chewing surface, the tooth tips are already damaged, the dentist will apply an onlay filling.
The inlay can be used when it is not necessary to cover the entire chewing surface. This insert can be securely fastened to minimize the risk of further caries with suitable oral hygiene. It protects the tooth tissue from further destruction, is aesthetic, and the contours of the tooth, its original shape can be perfectly restored with it.
The inlay can be made of plastic, ceramic, zirconium ceramic and gold.
The onlay is very similar to an inlay. However, the onlay insert provides a solution for larger hole when the entire chewing surface needs to be covered. This type of filling that is a transition between the crown and the inlay insert. Unlike the crown, there is no need to remove intact dentures here to make it.
The onlay ensures suitable chewing stability in the long run, as well as protects the tooth crown from further damage and deterioration. Like the inlay insert, it is made after the impression has been taken. By using it, the point of contact with the neighbouring tooth can be precisely formed.
It can also be made of several materials and is extremely durable and wear-resistant. It is fully gear to the tooth's own color.
It can be a perfect solution for repairing severely damaged teeth.
The onlay can be made of plastic, ceramic and gold.
The veneers can be used mainly in the front region. It is used primarily for minor shape and color correction.
During the procedure, we usually try to remove the tooth material minimally, which has a good effect on the further life of the tooth.
The application of veneers ceramics makes it possible to cover minor defects (color, shape, fragmentation of teeth), hereby creating an aesthetic smile.
We are at the service of our clients with the aesthetically most pleasing orthodontic solution ever, which renders for the users the opportunity to remain themselves in everyday life as the brace shall not influence the users’ self-confidence and air. Invisibraces are a new solution that has revolutionized our idea of orthodontics.
The advantages invisibraces offer are:
- the teeth are straightened by the help of an extra thin transparent aligner tray made of medical plastic
- the aligners are comfortable to wear, thus they do not influence the wearers’ everyday life
- the aligner trays are easy to remove, clean and reposition, thereby
- they offer the wearers an ease in maintaining the required level of oral hygiene
- they are not only for children: this technology offers a solution for every age group
- perfect result can be achieved by the use of invisibraces in a short time
What should I do, if I am interested in the invisibraches?
- Consult with your clients. Our product is able for anybody in no time
- The dentist make the impression and X-ray, and send to our laboratory.
- We make a digital 3D model, our technicians make virtual design of the moving of the tooth.
- We consult with the dentist and produce the invisibraches.
- The dentist put in the aligners in accordance with the treatment schedule, which we can achieve the desired result after proper use.
The 3D bone block products are used to compensate for the lack of bone used in oral surgery to allow patients who do not have the necessary bone volumen to use so-called circularly symmetrical implants, which can be used fixed implants to completely restore chewing ability.
With the help of bone blocks, we can restore the missing anatomical details of the maxilla and mandible that result from bone loss, bone degeneration, or an accident in a pre-planned way.
Human Bone Matrix Gelatin (BMG)
BMG is a partially dezantigenized, demineralized, partially autodigested particulated freeze-dried product. Its bone inductive property superior to cancellous bone. The biomechanical properties of the produced cortical bone provide optimal condition for implantation. According to the clinical expirience the BMG combined with folded PRF (F-PRF) called sticky bone, is an excellent solution for vertical and horizontal bone augmentations and sinus elevation.
BMG is made of young (<45) multiorgan and tissue donors’ cortical bone. The donors are selected according to rigorous criteria.The donors have been screened by serological and PCR tests according to the international standards. Hepatitis B,C, HIV1-2 , treponema and Sars Cov-2 tests are performed. The BMG has been sterilized after processing.
The products with different particulum sizes are optimal for different indications:sinus elevation, parodontology etc. alone or with the combination with F-PRF membrane (sticky bone).
Freeze-drying is one of the best preservation methods. The BMG has less than 5% water (1-3% generally) so it provides a chance for regular mail delivery and storage at room temperature for 5 years.
What are the advantages of the human banked bone in comparison to autologous (own) or xenograft (animal) bone?
Comparing to autologous:
- unlimited quantity
- free shaping
- no donor site morbidity and complications (pain, infection etc)
- no more surgery, no blood loss
- shorter surgery time
Comparing to xenograft:
- faster incorporation
- better bone induction
- no xenogeneic protein
- BMG induces appositional bone induction , no islet-like inclusions or xenograft remnants. Good biomechanical properties of the new developed bone
