Abutment Designer

Customized Abutments perfectly shaped to the anatomy design
Abutment Designer™ makes it easy to design the customized abutment as a natural extension of the crown The use of customized abutments is growing explosively, driven by better esthetics, cost savings, and CAD/CAM technology advancements. Simply model the anatomy first and create the abutment and emergence profile with smooth transitions and optimal esthetics.


Implant Bars & Bridges

When accuracy and esthetics matter
3Shape’s solution supports standard and free-form bar shapes for removable and fixed prosthesis, enables virtual design of gingiva and creation of any type of attachment. Use flexible and intuitive tools to form the bar to fit the denture, gingiva and implants optimally. Measure space and distance, and shape implant connections as cylindrical extensions or freeform emergence profiles.


Denture Design

Digital Dentures in a fast and easy workflow
3Shape’s 2nd generation Denture Design™ software brings digital precision and efficiency to a traditionally technique demanding process. By combining the flexibility of 3Shape’s Smile Composer™ with the unique Gingiva Creation Tool, technicians can model highly esthetic and functional dentures while significantly shortening the time usually to design.


Removable Partial Design

Design removable partials in less than 15 minutes
3Shape’s 3rd generation Removable Partial Design includes new and powerful tools for reliable creation of removable partials while reducing production time by 60-70%. The design workflow mimics the manual steps for Removable Partial design thereby ensuring intuitive and accurate digital control over a technique-demanding process. Design both metal and flexible frameworks.


Model Builder

Extensively used in labs all over the world
Model Builder™ lets technicians design lab models for many indications, including implant models, directly from TRIOS® digital impression scans, 3rd party intraoral scans, and physical impression scans. 3Shape’s new Model Builder™ enables model design for implant cases. Based on integrated implant position detection, users can virtually add interfaces for implant analogs directly in the model design. Adjust the model to fit your customized abutment design. Support for glue-in implant analogs.


Implant Studio

Implant Planning and Surgical Guide Design
Brings together implant planning, prosthetics, and design of surgical guides for local manufacturing and provides a cost-efficient solution that improves turn-around time, helps to enhance clinical results, while creating new business opportunities for both dentists and labs.
