This article provides an overview of the adoption of additively manufactured materials in dentistry. It discusses the practical workflows of a three-dimensional printing technology, vat photopolymerization. Three subgroups of the vat photopolymerization process are laser beam or classic stereolithography apparatus (SLA), direct light processing, and liquid-crystal-display-masked SLA. The article covers two subgroups of 3D printing resins-based appliances, namely intraoral and extraoral appliances. Information on various types of dental appliances and the fabrication of in-office appliances is provided. The article also reviews fourth-dimension printing and discusses the applications of the personalized care model in medicine and dentistry.
