3Shape solutions enabling dental labs to do more of what they love, more efficiently


At last week’s Lab Day in Chicago, 3Shape introduced updated 3Shape Dental System 2020 software, and new partnerships to enable labs to build their business and do more of what they love, faster, and more cost effectively. 

3Shape E4 lab scanner–ultimate productivity for labs
The 3Shape E4 lab scanner scans full arches in just nine seconds, two seconds faster than when launched last year to make it 3Shape’s fastest scanner ever. Its unprecedented scanning speed helps to deliver efficient die-in-model scanning for superior productivity, as well as extremely high accuracy for even the most precision-demanding cases. 

The E4 has been very popular with dental technicians looking to either trade-up an old 3Shape scanner or add more capacity to their labs, according to the company. Sunrise Dental Laboratory lab owner John Wilson says: “The new E4 scanner is hands down the most convenient, intuitive and fastest unit we have ever used. If your lab is ready to upgrade, I cannot recommend this scanner enough–3Shape does it again!” 

The preferred configuration for labs looking to scale their service offerings is with Dental System Complete Restorative which gives labs access to all 3Shape’s restorative lab workflows. 

Special Chicago E4 promotion 
At Lab Day, professionals could take advantage of a special 3Shape Chicago promotion of $1,200 off for an E4 scanner. Professionals should contact 3Shape or a 3Shape reseller at the show to learn more. 

3Shape Dental System 2020 launched

A popular choice of labs around the world, 3Shape Dental System 2020 delivers efficient and optimized workflows for the most profitable and in-demand services such as dentures, clear aligners, splints and more.

3Shape Splint Studio now available in the United States 
The extremely fast and intuitive workflow enables the quick design and production of splints, night guards and mouth guards in just a few clicks. 

Superior clear aligner partner integrations 
At LMT’s Lab Day, 3Shape, FullContour, and Argen introduced the first lab-dedicated clear aligner workflow. 

3Shape’s open and ever-growing ecosystem enables labs to seamlessly deliver the treatments their customers and patients want. From materials, mills, printers and libraries to integrations and partnerships, 3Shape connects labs with an unrivaled range of technology, collaborative workflows, design services, and manufacturing partners. 

The new lab-dedicated seamless clear aligner workflow enables labs using 3Shape solutions to offer doctors competitive clear aligners designed by FullContour and manufactured by Argen. The lab’s doctors have full control over the order, review, and treatment proposal approval using 3Shape’s cloud-based Treatment Review portal.
