This integration will enable smoother digital dental workflows between 3Shape and Dentsply Sirona, enabling professionals to deliver care in a more efficient way.
Dentsply Sirona and 3Shape, 2 leaders in dental technologies, will expand their workflow integrations offering dental professionals new ways to enhance patient care, according to a press release from Dentsply Sirona. This collaboration aims to empower dental professionals by streamlining their workflow integrations through DS Core and 3Shape Unite, enabling them to embrace a scan-to-lab workflow or establish design and manufacturing protocols directly within their practices.
One of the key highlights of this partnership is the direct connection between Dentsply Sirona's intraoral scanners, including Primescan, and the 3Shape Dental System Software via DS Core. This innovation allows dentists to effortlessly transmit orders to their lab partners via DS Core, leading to a more efficient workflow. In the lab, the data can be seamlessly processed using the 3Shape Dental System, ultimately saving time for both dental professionals and technicians.
Dentists can also take advantage of the innovative in-office solutions offered by Primemill and Primeprint through DS Core. This integration allows for in-office milling and printing using the 3Shape Unite platform, DS Core, and the inLab CAD software. As a result, high-quality prosthetic restorations such as permanent esthetic crowns, splints, temporary crowns, and models, can be same-day manufactured directly within the dental practice, per the press release. This expansion of workflow integrations marks an essential step for Dentsply Sirona and 3Shape in their mission to advance digital dentistry in both practices and labs, ultimately contributing to the improvement of oral health worldwide, according to 3Shape senior vice president of product strategy, Rune Fisker.
"3Shape and Dentsply Sirona are providing seamless workflows for our shared customer base. Dentists and labs will now benefit from smooth in-office manufacturing and send-to-lab solutions thanks to an expanded and validated interconnection of our systems,” Fisker says in the press release. “By being faithful to 3Shape’s open system principles, we are excited to combine such powerful opportunities in the industry."
Andreas Frank, Executive Vice President and Chief Business Officer at Dentsply Sirona, added, “The closer integration of leading offerings from Dentsply Sirona and 3Shape via DS Core opens new possibilities for dental practices and labs. Our customers expect to easily combine solutions from different companies in their practice to confidently deliver optimal performance. We are committed to expanding workflow integrations through our platform, DS Core, and thereby help dental professionals move forward with confidence. We are excited that 3Shape TRIOS users will now be able to expand their practices easily with in-office manufacturing solutions such as Primemill and Primeprint.”
