Our new Trios 3shape scanner will help to revolutionise the way we practice dentistry. The scanner takes hundreds of mini images of your teeth and gums allowing the software to generate a 3D image of your mouth. This means that we no longer need to take impression moulds of your teeth when doing crown and bridgework. The 3D generated models can then be printed for the lab technician to work on or alternatively the crowns can be designed on the lab’s software and then milled with a specific machine reducing the wastage of materials. Beyond crown and bridges the scanner is routinely used to make custom whitening trays with Boutique for a guaranteed B1 shade and also for clear aligner treatment with Invisalign and Reveal.
