About LuxCreo Inc.

Founded 2019

LuxCreo's mission is to accelerate the world's transition to digital dentistry through increasingly simplified design, 3D printing production, and delivery ecosystem. With LuxCreo it has never been easier for clinics and laboratories to work together to grow their businesses and deliver better, faster, and more convenient patient care.

Focus. Invent. Transform.

Solving impossible problems is in our DNA. LuxCreo is focused on inventing new ways for clinics and laboratories to deliver better patient care with less time and complexity.

History in the Making 

World's First FDA Class II 510(k) Directly 3D Printed Clear Aligner

April, 2022 LuxCreo, a 3D printing company based in Silicon Valley, California, was the first to receive FDA Class II 510(k) clearance for their direct 3D printed dental aligners. Their 4D Aligner™ System is an end-to-end solution that allows dentists and orthodontists to produce clear aligners on the same day, bypassing the traditional thermoforming and model stages.

LuxCreo Invents Digital Polishing™

Delivers the Impossible - Digitally Polished Clear Appliances

February, 2020 LuxCreo introduces Digital Polishing™, a 3D-printing platform that automates the polishing of clear dental appliances, such as splints, nightguards, retainers, and aligners, to simplify digital dentistry, reduce post-processing time, and increase production speed. It uses LuxCreo's patented LEAP™ platform and clear appliance resins, DCA and DNG, to achieve 80% higher clarity and reduce post-processing time by over 75%.

Future Proof Industrial Dental 3D Printing Platform

May 2019 LuxCreo set out to apply its unique full-stack industrial 3D printing platform to help accelerate the world's dental laboratories and clinics transition to digital dentistry.  LuxCreo chose to solve three impossible problems for laboratories and clinics:

1. Expand clear aligner applications with advanced materials, direct 3D printing and multi-thickness design with simplified, scalable workflow.

2. Eliminate the dirty little secrete of 3D printing - time consuming and messy grinding and polishing of clear dental appliances.

3. Ensure both laboratories and clinics can take their digital collaboration to the next level with unmatched simplicity, scalability, and repeatability.
