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 True Definition scan files can be sent to Elegant Dental Laboratories for the design and fabrication of traditional or implant restorations. True Definition Scanner users can contact 3M ESPE directly to add Elegant Dental Laboratories to your list of connected labs.

Step Two. Digital case designed

Elegant Dental technicians will perform quality checks to make sure scans submitted to our offices conform with your desired fabrication outcome and preferences. Once restoration parameters and designs have been approved, the digital case will be sent to a dental technician who specializes in related materials and prostheses. Our office will reach out to you via email or phone with any tentative questions or concerns.

Step Three.Case fabrication

At this point your case will have gone through several layers of vetting before being placed in assembly. Below you will find short descriptions of how your case will merge from digital to physical reality. Monolithic restorations – Blocks made of solid ceramic compositions will be milled using 5-axes into the desired rough final result. Sintering will then set the prostheses’ properties for longer lasting esthetics and strength. The final result entails made-from-hand finishing touches to achieve lifelike dentition. PFM & Full-cast Prostheses – 3D printers will use use multiple layers of plastic material to achieve the design submitted in step two. Afterwards, a reverse mold is fabricated by covering the model in investment materials and then pressed. Technicians will then apply final shadings by hand. Implant restorations – A multitude of milling machines will be used to match the design constructed in step two with appropriate abutments. Preventative, partial, and removable appliances – 3D-printed models of patients’ physical makeup taken from digital scans are created for technicians to fabricate the desired appliance.
