Laser Sintered metal:

MCLW pioneered direct metal printed appliances in the US! These laser sintered appliances are digitally designed to your specifications and printed in chrome cobalt.  The design possibilities are endless! The "standard" appliance includes elements for up to 3 teeth per side.  "Complex" designs include elements for 4 teeth or more and will have an additional design/fabrication charge applied. 

We have been using these appliances for over 3 years and have made all of the mistakes so you don't have to.  If you would like to schedule a design consultation to discuss "best practices" with one of our doctors, please click here.
