About our chairside solution

Don’t let your patients wait

If you are ready to go beyond the traditional model for restorative dentistry, where patients need to wait and come back to your office to finish off their treatment, then the 3Shape chairside solution is the right fit for you. It gives you superior scan technology, intuitive design software, and smooth integrations. With that, you can go beyond scanning with same-day designing and milling of crowns, inlay/onlays, bridges, veneers, and screw-retained crowns* right in your practice.


The 3Shape chairside solution provides step-by-step guided workflows for you to offer same-day dentistry.


Power your same-day dentistry treatment with digital models from the award-winning 3Shape TRIOS digital impression solution.


Our restorative design software, TRIOS Design Studio, lets you plan and design the case in-house in a guided intuitive workflow.

What you will get

Get full control
Because our chairside dental software is developed by dentists for dentists, it reflects the way you want to work in your practice. It is designed to guide you through your workflows using automatically generated CAD/CAM designs, but you are always free to take advantage of our powerful editing tools when you want. You can for example start with single-molar e-max crowns, like this dentist. Once comfortable with that, you move on to inlay/onlays, to add business value. Once experienced, you can do more esthetic cases, such as anterior veneers, or go all the way up to 3-unit bridges and screw-retained crowns*.
A guided workflow
The easy to follow, step-by-step workflow allows you to design where and when you want. On your workstation, another laptop, or at home. TRIOS Design Studio includes smart AI Crown technology, which quickly proposes a restorative design for you. This shortens the time to production steps and can make your workflows more efficient. Once your design is complete, you just choose how you want to manufacture: in-house or by the lab. 
Unrivaled milling and material options 
Our open system means you have an unrivaled number of design, production and material options. Want to produce in-house? Simply select your 3Shape Trusted Connection milling machine. Our dental design software seamlessly connects and automatically orients and decides where to attach the restoration to your material block. You just click “Mill.” Next, you choose the material you want to manufacture with. From IPS e.max CAD restorations to BruxZir and more, the choice is yours. 
Scalable and cost-efficient

With our strong TRIOS scanner portfolio, a wide range of software apps, and an open choice of mills, you can scale the solution to match your financial and business needs.

Scale up the number of indications you master. Starting with single-molar e-max crowns, move on to inlay/onlays and send bigger and more complex cases to your preferred lab. Once you are ready, why not cover more lucrative and aesthetic cases like anterior veneers, up to 3-unit bridges and screw-retained crowns? The efficiencies are there to be had.
