Manufacturer of dental products and technologies Dentsply Sirona, and digital solutions innovator for dental patient care 3Shape, are expanding their workflow integrations to enable dental professionals through DS Core and 3Shape Unite to use a scan-to-lab workflow or establish design and manufacturing protocols directly in their practice. Dentists and dental technicians will stand to benefit from simple, secure, and connected technology solutions for effective collaboration.

Dentsply Sirona intraoral scanners such as Primescan will now connect directly with the 3Shape Dental System Software via DS Core. Dentists will be able to transmit orders to their laboratory partners through the software where the data can be directly processed in 3Shape Dental System, for quicker turnarounds. 

Furthermore, dentists will also be able to connect 3Shape’s TRIOS scanners to Dentsply Sirona’s Primemill and Primeprint for in-office milling and printing via 3Shape Unite, DS Core and the inLab computer-aided design (CAD) software. This aims to enable high quality prosthetic restorations such as permanent aesthetic crowns, as well as removable and temporary dental applications such as splints, temporary crowns or models to be directly in the dental practice same day.

For Dentsply Sirona and 3Shape, this is an important next step to advance digital dentistry in practices and laboratories and help improve oral health worldwide. 

“3Shape and Dentsply Sirona are providing seamless workflows for our shared customer base. Dentists and labs will now benefit from smooth in-office manufacturing and send-to-lab solutions thanks to an expanded and validated interconnection of our systems. By being faithful to 3Shape’s open system principles, we are excited to combine such powerful opportunities in the industry,” said 3Shape senior vice president of product strategy, Rune Fisker.

“The closer integration of leading offerings from Dentsply Sirona and 3Shape via DS Core opens new possibilities for dental practices and labs. Our customers expect to easily combine solutions from different companies in their practice to confidently deliver optimal performance. We are committed to expanding workflow integrations through our platform, DS Core, and thereby help dental professionals move forward with confidence. We are excited that 3Shape TRIOS users will now be able to expand their practices easily with in-office manufacturing solutions such as Primemill and Primeprint,” said Dentsply Sirona executive vice president and chief business officer, Andreas Frank.
