Nobel Biocare Announces NobelDesign – Intuitive CAD Software for Dental Restorations

NobelDesign Software* combines powerful CAD tools with efficient and intuitive workflows.

− Creating outstanding NobelProcera restorations has never been easier.

− Annual NobelDesign software subscription avoids significant one-time payment upfront.


Nobel Biocare announces the introduction of NobelDesign: efficient and intuitive software for the computer-aided design of NobelProcera dental restorations. By combining advanced CAD tools with access to a wide range of NobelProcera restorations, NobelDesign will help dental professionals offer a greater range of superior prosthetic solutions to patients.

NobelDesign is one of a number of innovations to be exhibited at Nobel Biocare’s Global Symposium in New York, taking place from June 23 to 26, 2016.*


Powerful CAD tools without complexity

NobelDesign incorporates intuitive exocad® CAD tools for the efficient design of both cemented and screw-retained restorations. Multiple cases are simple to manage in the easy-to-navigate virtual cockpit.

The software offers time-saving virtual tooth set-up and mirroring features, as well as a virtual articulator function that helps optimise occlusal contact points. These capabilities are particularly valuable in combination with NobelProcera’s range of translucent full-contour zirconia solutions.

NobelDesign also incorporates exocad® TruSmile technology that visualises designs in a photo-realistic rendering, meaning the technician can assess how tooth shape and fissure design will appear in the patient’s mouth.

Other options include an angulated screw channel function for improved aesthetics and accessibility, and partial cutback tools that aid in the design of veneering support. As the intuitive interface adapts to the user’s preferred way of working, efficiency increases over time.


Access to an increasing number of unrivalled restorations

NobelDesign users will access new NobelProcera innovations first, as new product releases will only be available in NobelDesign.

NobelDesign is accessible only in combination with the highly accurate NobelProcera 2G Scanner, and is available on an annual subscription basis.* This gives users added flexibility, and avoids a significant one-off payment upfront.

Hans Geiselhöringer, Nobel Biocare President, said:“The introduction of the NobelDesign Software is the latest step in Nobel Biocare’s extensive pipeline of digital innovations that increase efficiency for dental professionals and improve patient care.

“NobelDesign’s powerful and intuitive CAD tools will be appreciated by dental technicians, while the excellent results it enables will be valued by clinicians and patients alike.

“With Nobel Biocare’s seamlessly integrated treatment workflow, dental laboratories accessing NobelDesign using the NobelProcera 2G System open up business-building opportunities throughout the treatment process.”
