Digital Impression Systems

Digital Scanner Digital Scanner

Clinicians are leveraging their investments in chairside digital impression systems by partnering with digitally enabled laboratories to streamline their workflow and reduce the time and cost of treatment. For both traditional and implant restorations, we accept digital impression scans for Sirona CEREC®, Align Technology iTero, 3Shape TRIOS®, 3M ESPE's 3M True Definition Scanner, IOS Technologies IOS FastScan® and E4D Technologies Nevo Scanner.

With digital impressions, you’ll save on impression material, trays and one-way, overnight shipping. Save an additional $20 per unit when you opt for model-free restorations and prescribe BruxZir® Solid Zirconia restorations, IPS e.max® restorations or Inclusive® Custom Implant Abutments. Prescribe cases with model work (extra $20 model charge; extra $22 for CEREC), for the fabrication of virtually any ceramic restoration including PFMs, Prismatik CZ, Captek and more.


Currently accepted digital impression systems include:

CEREC® (Sirona)

AC Bluecam Instructions | Omnicam Instructions | Registration Instructions

Cerec-pdfTo send a case for a traditional or implant restoration through Sirona Connect, follow the standard Sirona scan protocol. Select your restoration preferences, and send scans of the prepared teeth with adjacent teeth, buccal bite (using V4.0 software) and the opposing arch. For anterior cases, an additional scan of the preoperative condition or a scan with the temporary in place is recommended for the best correlation design.

iTero (Align Technology Inc.)

iTero-pdfMinimize the need for chairside adjustments by taking digital impressions for your implant and restorative cases. After receiving a scan file for a traditional or implant restoration, trained technicians review, design and fabricate abutments and restorations to meet your specifications and our strict company standards. iTero users can contact Align Technology directly to add Glidewell Laboratories to your list of "Favorite Labs."

TRIOS® (3Shape)

3Shape-pdfSend your 3Shape TRIOS scans to Glidewell Laboratories using 3Shape Communicate. TRIOS order forms can be customized to match specific information requirements and offerings from Glidewell Laboratories, making it easy to create new orders, attach 2-D images and convey all case aspects to our lab. Minutes after your scanning is complete, our lab technicians can receive your TRIOS digital impressions and immediately start designing your traditional or implant restoration. When your design is complete, a 3-D model will automatically be sent to the 3Shape Communicate site for you to review before we begin fabricating your restoration.

3M True Definition Scanner (3M ESPE)

3M-pdfFor faster production, and more accurate results, 3M True Definition scan files can be sent to Glidewell Laboratories for the design and fabrication of traditional or implant restorations. True Definition Scanner users can contact 3M ESPE directly to add Glidewell Laboratories to your list of "Favorite Labs."

IOS FastScan® (IOS Technologies)

ios-pdfScan, send and save by using IOS FastScan for the fabrication of traditional or implant restorations from a digital scan file. IOS FastScan offers improved ease of use thanks to its unique intraoral camera. The IOS camera scans 40 mm of dentition in a second, so all you have to do is hold the camera in position, while it does all the work. Image stabilization software compensates for hand movement, creating digital impressions with outstanding surface resolution and exceptional depth of field focus.

Planmeca PlanScan® (E4D Technologies)

Planmeca PlanScan Instructions | E4D Instructions
