COPENHAGEN, Denmark/SCHAAN, Liechtenstein: 3D scanner developer 3Shape and smart product systems manufacturer Ivoclar Vivadent are scaling up their collaborative efforts. Their common goal is to develop the best possible oral health solutions for the health and well-being of patients.

Both companies strive to offer highly efficient and fully integrated digital workflows. The scanning and CAD software solutions from 3Shape are coordinated with the PrograMill and PrograPrint CAM machines from Ivoclar Vivadent. This efficient combination, together with superior dental materials, ensures results that promote good oral health.

The two companies are collaborating in the following areas:

  • patient consultation with IvoSmile, augmented reality software that provides the patient with a preview of the treatment result in real-time 3D;
  • a fully integrated chairside solution featuring PrograScan One intra-oral scanners and PrograMill One, a compact five-axis milling machine designed for IPS e.max; and
  • integration of the Ivotion Denture System and the patented workflows from Ivoclar Vivadent in 3Shape’s Dental System 2020.

Diego Gabathuler, CEO of Ivoclar Vivadent, is excited about his company’s collaboration with 3Shape: “Ivoclar Vivadent and 3Shape together offer competitive end-to-end solutions not only for dental offices, but also for laboratories and orthodontic practices.”

3Shape CEO Jakob Just-Bomholt added: “The success story of 3Shape and Ivoclar Vivadent continues. We believe that these offerings will enhance the overall patient experience, and give dentists and technicians all the benefits of 3Shape’s and Ivoclar’s powerful products. We look forward to seeing the creative minds of both companies coming up with more solutions and workflows that will further enhance dental treatment procedures.”
