Core3dcentres® and Carestream Dental have announced that Core3dcentres has been recognized as a Complete Solutions Partner for Carestream Dental in North America. 

Core3dcentres has undergone a rigorous training process to help CS Connect-a hosted web-based platform that enables the transmission of digital impression data-dental laboratories take maximum advantage of Carestream Dental’s computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) solutions, designed to make the lab workflow intuitive and efficient, while building business. 

The List: 5 CAD terms you need to know

First, practitioners use either one of several Carestream Dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) units or the CS 3500 intraoral scanner to create digital impressions. With a CBCT unit, conventional impressions are scanned to create 3D models, or, the intraoral scanner can be used to capture true color, high-resolution 3D digital images of patients’ teeth.

Once the STL files have been submitted to a lab, two different workflows are possible depending on the laboratory’s digital capabilities, both based on the original scans taken by the practitioner with Carestream Dental scanning solutions. If the lab prefers to do their own case design, Core3dcentres can assist with fast model printing, eliminating the need for expensive in-lab model printing capabilities. In workflow option two, Core3dcentres can also design the case for the laboratory and then print and return the models. The laboratory can choose to mill the case themselves or have Core3dcentres do it for them with either workflow option.
