Case overview in short

  • 3Shape inbox
  • exocad CAD software
  • BISS Dental Model-Creator
  • Elos Accurate analogue
  • Design and database: Intellident
  • Production of printed model and zirconia crown: Intellident
  • Production of titanium abutment: Vamac

The lab has asked our denticians to design and produce a titanium abutment with a zirconia crown. The scans made by the dentist are available, but the lab is unable to import and process them. We have taken over the digital process which resulted in a custom dental restoration.

From the lab…

The dentist sends an intraoral 3D scan to the dental laboratory. His patient needs a titanium abutment at implant level with a full-contour zirconia crown.

… to our denticians…

The dentist used a Straumann scan body for scanning. The lab is unable to process the 3Shape scans and asks Intellident for assistance.

Now our denticians take over. We …

  1. … locate the implant position using the Straumann scan body;
  2. … import the data into exocad and match it with our custom database;
  3. … design the abutment and the crown in-house in exocad;
  4. … make a 3D-printed model with Elos replica and removable soft tissue using our custom Elos database;
  5. … produce the abutment with implant connection (from our own database) and mill the zirconia crown in-house.

… and back to the lab

The lab technicians receive our semi-finished restoration and only need to add the finishing touch.
