Product Showcase

ArgenZ Zirconia

When it comes to multilayer, it’s all about the blend. And Argen has mastered it. ArgenZ HT+ Multilayer and Argen Z ST Multilayer zirconias offer a natural gradient, easy nesting, and no visible layer lines. HT+ Multilayer is ideal for long-span bridges and full-arch cases, providing optimal strength (1250 MPa) with a consistent shade match. ArgenZ ST Multilayer is the superior choice for esthetic zone cases, boasting 50% translucency. Both products offer a wide range of thicknesses and shades to best meet the needs of your lab.

Argen Clear Aligners

Argen Clear Aligners is a turn-key opportunity designed for dental laboratories to seamlessly enter the clear aligner market. Argen Clear Aligners are made from a thermoformed plastic material that ensures precision fit, ongoing force retention, and exceptional durability. Our clear aligners are not only an effective way to straighten teeth but are comfortable, stain-resistant, easy to remove, and nearly invisible. They are perfect for mild to moderate cases in the esthetic zone and competitively priced compared to many of the clear aligners on the market today.
