3D scanning in connection with designing implant bridges and bars requires very high accuracy that few scanners can deliver. Labs all over the world are using 3Shape’s D800/D810 scanners to produce implant bars and bridges of extraordinary quality. The 5.0 Megapixel cameras, in combination with high quality scan abutments, enable accurate 3D data capture of both implant positions and implant orientations to ensure a perfect tension-free fit.

Market’s most extensive suite of scan indications 
All standard scan indications and in addition impression scanning, post & core, 16-unit bridges, articulated antagonist model, wax-up bridges for copy milling, deep inlays, pre-preparation model, un-sectioned model for temporaries, implant position and orientation detection, wax-up customized abutment and wax-up implant bridges for copy milling. The range of available indications depends on the Dental System™ version - Standard/Premium.

High productivity with Multi-Die scanning
Dies for one or more cases are fixed to the Multi-Die plate, and scanning is automatic, freeing the technician to work with other tasks. Maximum accuracy is obtained by an obstacle-free camera angle, ultra-sharp focus, and optimal mechanical precision.





Achieve High Quality Through Advanced Digital Technology
3Shape’s Dental System™ is a unique combination of the most advanced 3D scanning technology, 3D CAD package and management software. The result is accurate, customized dental restorations, in a fraction of the time it would take using traditional, manual manufacturing processes.

3Shape’s Dental System™ includes the high-performance D700 laser 3D scanner, the intuitive DentalDesigner™ CAD modelling program and the DentalManager™ application for managing and exchanging production files.

Take your productivity to new heights
The 3Shape Dental System™ is developed to emulate and assist the manual design process, making it a more intuitive system for technicians to use. The introduction of digital technology in place of manual processes drastically increases productivity, enabling laboratories to process more orders in a shorter period of time.

Experience the freedom of digital design
The System’s versatility enables a completely flexible implementation and integration. It can scan impressions, full casts, dies, implants or wax-ups automatically, and supports multiple design options, such as copings, full anatomical crowns and bridges. The System can be connected to an external manufacturing center or internal manufacturing equipment.

Globally leading suppliers to the dental laboratory industry and large dental laboratory groups have teamed up with 3Shape and chosen 3Shape’s 3D scanners and CAD software as part of their customized dental CAD/CAM solutions.

Future-proof your lab
With more than 50 developers dedicated to dental solutions, 3Shape has unmatched development and innovation power, thereby making the vision of a completely digital lab a reality.

Inlay, Onlay & Veneers
The 3Shape Dental System™ fully supports the design of inlays, onlays and veneers, including automatic anatomy morphing. With these new important indications, labs can increase return on investment of their CAD/CAM system.

DentalDesigner™ makes even the most complex designs straightforward with its automated, intuitive design process. Technicians can design single inlays, onlays, veneers and inlay bridges quickly and more accurately than possible with manual design methods. During each phase of the design process, DentalDesigner™ calculates and intelligently suggests appropriate designs and selections, be it insertion direction, margin line, removal of undercuts, anatomical shape or contact antagonist to neighboring teeth.

Once the technician has selected the appropriate tooth anatomy from the extensive built-in library, the program starts the automated integration and approximation. To create an optimal anatomical shape of the inlay, onlay or veneer, the shape is automatically morphed to match the original anatomy of the treated tooth, the proximal and antagonist surfaces. Yet, all of this automation doesn't mean that designs are inflexible. Technicians can also modify suggested anatomy designs using the state-ofthe-art sculpt toolkit.

Crown Automation
DentalDesigner™ automatically pre-models the tooth anatomy in place by optimally adapting it to the antagonist and neighboring dentition.
Imported Scans from Intra Oral Scanners
Intra oral scanners are likely to become a key component in the future of dentistry. It is already possible to import and work directly on scans from open intra oral scanners such as iTero from Cadent.
Over-pressed Crowns and Bridge in DentalDesigner™
Export files for the anatomical correct coping and a second one for the wax pattern. Directly pressed ceramics offer an efficient solution for full CAD/CAM crowns significantly reducing cost.

DentalDesigner's new automatic modeling functionalities pre-position the morphologies and automatically adjust them to the antagonist and proximal dentition. The powerful freeform Sculpt Toolkit delivers unprecedented freedom and efficiency in crown sculpting.

3Shape's new generation of AbutmentDesigner™ offers extensive new functionality for faster and better customized abutment design, scan of wax-up abutments and wax-up implant bridges for copy milling and integrated design of abutments, copings/frameworks and crowns. Finally, the number of supported implants systems are increasing rapidly.

Implants are estimated to be one of the fastest growing areas in dentistry and maintaining high profitability. The newest generation of AbutmentDesigner™ enables labs to make the most of these opportunities. Creating customized abutments, implant bridges and bars by AbutmentDesigner™ does not just increase productivity by eliminating the time spent on waxing and casting, but it also increases accuracy and esthetic results - increasing profitability and dentist satisfaction.

Currently, AbutmentDesigner™ supports a large number of different implant systems covering all major players. The actual implant system libraries used in AbutmentDesigner™ are offered by different suppliers including both original implant manufactures and third party manufactures. Please contact your supplier to obtain the latest list of suppliers and supported systems.

The actual materials offered depend on the selected supplier, but AbutmentDesigner™ can design single material abutments, bridges and bars or apply pre-manufactured CAD/CAM abutments to be cemented together with a modeled customized piece.

This is a must for the precise definition of occlusal contacts and optimum restoration design, eliminating the need for a bite registration.

NEW: STL-ready.
The inEos Blue scanner now has the capability to save and export scanned data in STL format so that the data may be processed using third-party software.





3D scanners

Since no two labs or clinics are the same, Dental Wings offers three distinct scanning systems to meet various needs and budgets. Whether the client is a small clinic or large lab, design outsourcing or in-house manufacturing, every dental business can find a 3D scanner that best meets its needs.

Proven and reliable scanning technology

Dental Wings scanners are non-contact, optical 3D scanning devices. Each combines proven laser triangulation technology with three or five axes of freedom, depending on the application. The Dental Wings 3D scanners are designed and built to the highest manufacturing standards with robust components machined to strict mechanical tolerances that are subject to rigorous inspection standards. These high levels of engineering are some of the reasons the thousands of systems delivered by Dental Wings have proved remarkably reliable over time.

Accurate and repeatable

Prior to shipment, each Dental Wings scanner is subjected to stringent quality control. Each scanner undergoes a complete cycle of testing, which includes full metrological analysis performed on actual dental cases and ensures that all Dental Wings scanners are consistently capable of digitizing a preparation within 15 µm of accuracy.

Plug and play installation and ease of use

The Dental Wings scanners are designed to be “plug and play” systems. Their powerful embedded computer and pre­installed DWOS modules allow users to start scanning in less than 30 minutes following delivery. Moreover, the platform’s user-friendly and ergonomic interface, coupled with advanced scanning strategies, has made the scanners intuitive and easy to operate. The standard output format is the universally recognized STL file format. However, through cooperative partner development, proprietary partner formats are also made available to the DWOS user community.

Powered by DWOS

All Dental Wings applications are seamlessly integrated into the DWOS technology platform, providing users with direct access to all software application modules. All three scanners come with preset DHS settings that can be used for advanced network integration, enabling efficient communication between clinics, labs and outsourcing production facilities.

Approved by 3M ESPE

3M ESPE has approved the use of Dental Wings scanners to design Lava™ material prosthesis. Our devices are officially "3M ESPE Lava Materials Approved".

The “all-in-one” new generation scanner

Dental Wings’s newest scanner can be thought of as an “all-in-one” dental scanner. The system scans both plaster positive models and negative impressions. The 7Series user is typically a medium to large laboratory, where high volume throughput is required and technological versatility is a must.

State-of-the-art technology solution

The 7Series represents Dental Wings’s cumulative engineering expertise coupled with the latest high-end technology components. The scanner’s optical measuring head is composed of two high-speed cameras and one video-assisted camera which facilitates the speed of scan previews. Optimum accuracy and versatility are achieved by reducing the triangulation angles formed between the laser and the cameras. Superior resolution is obtained by reducing the field of view of high performance, last generation CMOS cameras. The scanner has five axes of freedom which provides superior accessibility within scanning volumes. What drives these mechanisms is a state-of-the-art embedded computer powered by Windows 7 64 bits.

scanner 7 seriesEase of use with unprecedented performance

The 7Series defines a whole new class of 3D scanners that delivers unprecedented performance. The system comes with pre-installed DWOS software modules which include Crown & Bridge, Implant Custom Abutment, Virtual Model Builder and the Rapid-Prototyping and Manufacturing modules. The Partial Frameworks module is a compatible add-on option.


Excellent accuracy:

The 7Series delivers excellent marginal integrity and fit on a large variety of indications from a single preparation to full arch.

Higher throughput:

The new fully automatic scan and design multi-die application produces 30 final coping designs in  about 15 minutes. Moreover, once the platform is loaded, the process is completely automated. When done with the 30 designs, end users simply review the final designs as part of their normal quality control procedures and make any desired modifications required by a doctor’s prescription. No other scanner on the market is capable of this type of performance!

Large scanning volume:

The 7Series provides accurate results over a large volume (140 mm x 140 mm x 140 mm), which provides wider access for larger, fully articulated models.

Scanning versatility:

Built on the proven iSeries’s negative scanning technology combined with five axes of freedom, the 7Series has access to the widest variety of scanning materials and indications, from single to full arch preparation on positive plaster models to lower anteriors on silicone-based impressions.



DWOS Software

DWOS includes a complete suite of design applications and features which enable dental technicians and GPs (General Practitioners) to design an extensive range of prosthetic indications using one common software platform.

The first dental PLM system

216Order management - database

Built upon a robust manufacturing platform, DWOS represents the first genuine digital dental system which embraced PLM (Product Life-cycle Management) principles and has incorporated the most advanced digital manufacturing concepts. This powerful architecture is made accessible through a simple, dental related interface.


Order management:

Manages the entire order life-cycle process from creation to manufacturing.

Database management:

Provides total overview and control of dental cases.

Material management:

Enables the creation of materials and their respective design and manufacturing parameters.

Dentist management:

Supports personalized design preferences by material.


Network ready for large distributed environments (multiple design stations connected to a centralized server).

Full integration to 3D scanners

DWOS design modules are fully integrated into the Dental Wings 3D scanners. These powerful combinations deliver the highest throughput productivity over any other existing solution on the market. By allowing the parallel scan, auto-margin, auto-insertion axis detection and auto-design generation, the Dental Wings 3D systems are in a production class of their own.

Open software platform

DWOS is an open architecture platform providing users freedom to use other scanning technologies to perform their designs. To simplify use of data generated from other non-Dental Wings technologies, an “import 3rd party” feature exists to provide users an easy method of populating a Dental Wings session with external data. Intra-oral scans generated by LavaTM COS (3M ESPE) and iTero (Cadent) can be directly imported in DWOS for prosthesis designs.


Pre-Operative Implant Planning

An increasing proportion of prosthetic elements produced through CAD/CAM processes are implant borne. Integrating the implant planning and the prosthetic design becomes essential to support the complete tooth-to-root workflow.

Interface to Straumann® coDiagnostiX TM

Pre-operative planning global view

Dental Wings is creating an interface between DWOSTTMand Straumann® coDiagnostiXTM, one of the leading pre-operative planning tools. This integrated solution enables implantologists, GPs and labs to collaborate within one common software platform during the entire tooth-to-root workflow.

The first completely open solution:

  • The pre-operative implant planning software can import data (Dicom format) from any existing or new CBCT scanner.
  • The pre-operative planning software allows placing implants from many leading implant suppliers. This combination is unlike some other pre-operative planning tools that can only be used to plan implants from one supplier, forcing the dental professional to use different software tools to plan implants from different suppliers.
  • The drill guides can be produced locally using a mechanical device (GonyXTM). Other pre-operative planning systems lock the user into mandatory centralized drill guide manufacturing. Using this solution, the added value remains within the local dental team.
Implant placement within CT scan


Implant placement with diagnostic and plaster model scan

Straumann® coDiagnostiXTM and DWOSTM have significant track records and enjoy a large installed base within the dental industry. Their integrated solution allows for “backward planning”; i.e. taking the prosthetic design as the starting point for implant planning and placement. The new interface between Straumann® coDiagnostiXTM and DWOSTMenables the best fit of prosthetic design with CBCT data. This combined information serves as input for implant planning and allows the pre positioning of implants by taking into account the prosthetic design.


Virtual Articulator

The Virtual Articulator module significantly reduces the time required for chairside occlusion adjustments while enhancing the overall in-mouth seating of dental prostheses. The Virtual Articulator simulation improves the dental prostheses design by adding kinematic analysis to the static CAD design process. The software simulates the complex mandibular movements of the human jaw by breaking them down into a series of pre-planned excursive movements such as Protrusion, Retrusion, Laterotrusion, and Immediate Side Shift. A powerful collision detection algorithm is then applied to dynamically compute occlusal contact regions.

For optimal results, Dental Wings has developed the following workflow within the DWOS solution:

  1. The models are mounted and adjusted upon the articulator and then transferred to the Dental Wings scanner (3Series, 5Series or 7Series) for digitizing and building the virtual clinical case. Specially designed fixtures enable the proper transfer of the occlusal registration from the articulator to the scanner and vice versa. Dental Wings has established a partnership with SAM GmbH, which produces the articulator plate that is used with the plaster models that are compatible with Dental Wings scanners.
  2. Dental prostheses are statically modelled using the DWOS Crown & Bridge module.
  3. Following the simulation of virtual articulation applied to the clinical case, the software highlights the occlusion contact zones and automatically proposes the required prostheses design modifications.

Articulator excursion



Crown & Bridge

The DWOS Crown & Bridge module is the foundation of prosthesis design and manages all aspects of the creation of a digital crown.

Unparalleled flexibility

DWOS meets labs’ needs for flexibility by allowing them to manage the unexpected. Moreover, DWOS enables lab technicians to maintain their creativity and freedom because it does not impose on them a step-by-step design approach.

  • Import and export STL files across applications: i) re-use previous designs as wax-ups or antagonist, ii) import additional patient information such as facial scans or jaw bone CBCT scans.
  • Change indication during design session at any time without restarting the full process from the beginning. Examples include change from a simple coping to full crown, split a bridge into three because of diverging preparations or remove a pontic as a result of lack of space.

Intuitive and user-friendly editing tools

The DWOS design and manufacturing modules are the most flexible and intuitive software solutions on the market. The easy-to-use advanced editing features are designed to save users time and the familiar dental tool references used across the whole software platform ensure that users are comfortable with the application.

Reference tools:

Global editing tools facilitate the global design by switching between editing tools on any given prosthesis.

  • Virtual waxer simulates the regular waxing knife, but gives free-form access to using the morphing mode
  • Global transforms enable users to freely scale, rotate and position the active design object
  • Clinical handles with transparent viewing ensure morphologically correct designs
  • Simultaneous across-arch design capability
