BEGO has been operating on the dental market for 130 years, and for over two decades also specializes in the field of materials used in 3D printing for prosthetics and dentistry. Prints made from the manufacturer’s resins ensure excellent aesthetic results achieved in various shades, while having a low tendency to discoloration or the appearance of an aging effect.
