How to become a digital dental practice
Chances are your lab does it. Your patient wants it. On top of that, the technology is more mature and easier to use than ever. Now is the time for dentists to go digital. We can help you become a digital dental practice every step of the way.

The digital age

Affordable, easier and loved by patients

Going digital and beyond analog dentistry means that you skip the conventional impression and start treatments with an intraoral scan. The technology is already being used by many doctors, and it’s now more affordable and easier to use than ever.

Digitizing your workflow saves you time, increases quality, and makes communication with your lab simple and fast. And most importantly, your patients will love it because it makes it easier for them to see and understand what you’re doing. The 3D digital impression enables you to engage them by showing areas of interest, treatment proposals and treatment progress on-screen.


The digital workflow in a nutshell 

Scan your patient

It all starts with a digital 3D intraoral scan. Scanning is done within a few minutes. Pick a scanning setup that fits to your situation - from an entry-level send-to-lab solution to an advanced wireless scanner, excitement apps and in-house design solutions.

Engage with visuals

The digital scan is a perfect starting point for visualization. Our engagement and excitement apps make it easier than ever to communicate with your patient and increase acceptance of your treatment proposals.

Monitor over time

Scanning every patient every time allows you to easily track development of their dental status and monitor treatment progress.


When restorative treatment is needed, you can send cases to your lab with just a click. Growth plans? Expand your digital solution with 3Shape software. Get the 3Shape TRIOS® Studio apps enabling you to design and produce in-house.
