3Shape Lab solutions


Becoming a digital dental lab has never been easier

Going digital is no longer a luxury – it’s a necessity for dental labs to maintain business in the rapidly-changing dental industry. Whatever your lab size, 3Shape can help you with a powerful, future-proof digital solution.

Why should my lab go digital?

In today’s digital era, even the most cost-conscious labs need a solid Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system. More and more dentists are taking impressions digitally and using software to engage their patients. Your lab’s ability to work with intraoral scans is crucial for your future.

Our digital lab solutions are scalable and come with the latest technologies for accuracy and speed,
which means you can develop and grow at your own pace.

Compete and prosper

Many of today’s labs are already digital, and 23% of non-digital labs plan to evolve within the next three years1. When you go digital, you’ll see how CAD/CAM extends your capacity with high-revenue lab service options, reduces your costs, and simplifies your workflow.

3Shape lab solutions are compatible with a wide range of other scanners, software, mills and printers. This means you can freely combine equipment, materials, and trusted 3rd party services as you grow.

Your choice. Your pace. Your growth.
