Tech/Engineering / Thermoformed Support Splints for Bleaching Teeth
German term or phrase: Tiefzieh-Thema
"Ein aktuelles Tiefzieh-Thema: Die Herstellung einer Trägerschiene für das Aufhellen der Zahnfarbe natürlicher Zähne – allgemein Bleaching genannt."

From a text about making thermoformed support splints for bleaching teeth.

The "Tiefzieh" refers to the thermoforming, but I'm wondering if there's some sort of pun going on with "Tiefzieh-Thema", and if so, how this might be conveyed in English? TIA for any light you can shed on this.

Explanation:
No pun or wordplay that I can see, I’m afraid.

But if you want to put one in, how about:

The manufacture of support splints for bleaching teeth is the current hot topic for thermoforming.

thermoforming - hot topic, get it?;-))

hope it helps
