About Design Services

Bridging the gap

If you’re dealing with capacity limitations or lack of experience, your lab or clinic might miss out on business opportunities. 3Shape Design Services bridges that gap for you. It helps you from a scan to a fully finished dental design.

With access to an integrated network of design providers that specialize in all indications, including crown and bridge, orthodontics, implantology, and removables, you can always deliver the right treatment to every patient.

The workflow

Our cloud software, Communicate, allows you to communicate with third-parties and share cases directly, so you can get access to all indications, from standard restorative to orthodontics and implant designs. 

Scan

Scan a patient or model with a TRIOS or lab scanner.

Send file

Receive design file
