QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
What kind of system do you prefer? Exocad or 3 Shape? What are your charges for design for each?
We prefer using 3Shape Dental System. Our Prices for Designs can be located on this page.
Do you have bridge milling available?
Yes We do. No Up Charge for Bridges :)
Good morning. I have a few questions about your services. I have a case I'm working on, 9 units over 4 implants. The plan is for 2 bridges. I have already placed the implanys and they are ready to restore. I haven't chosen the implant abutments yet. I want to choose the abutments based on the prosthetic design. What is the best workflow in this case? I am using Dentis implants. Dentisusa.com I would like to use the stock abutments if possible.
You would need to place the Stock Abutments in the model.
Then you would place an order for "Implant Crowns"
Inside the Prescription you would select "Ship Models" (This is our fee for Scan and Design)
You would then pack your models, and ship them to us.
Do you have a manufacturing DME that I can download for 3shape?
Not at the moment.
The only critical information customers need to update is the "Tool Radius" to 0.65mm.

We do, but not as a stand alone design.
It would need to accompany a milling service.
do i have to send a bite for a bruxir splint? im exporting from sirona and its only exporting upper lower
It comes down to the geolocation of the objects in the 3D World.
If the coordinates are aligned, you do not need a bite.
A great free tool is Blender.
You can import your scans, to see if the objects are properly occluded.
If they are, then we won't have an issue with the bite.
If it is not, then you would need a bite scan, so we can properly align it.

Hello. My name is Anastasia I am dental technician. I am interested to try your design and have some questions. 1. Would you explain me please maybe with some examples what does it mean "Virtual Prepping"? 2. Do I have opportunity to see designed crowns on digital model, some our Doctors wish to see design sending them by photos (like a printscreens of crowns from different points of view, expecially for implant crowns about emergensy profile) 3. If I order design of fullmouth restoration, veneers crowns and have some additional things like: photos of patient with eyes and smile, intraoral scan of temporary crowns which patient likes and want to have copy of this shape. Do you accept this additional info and how can i send it to you? 4. If I send to my Doctors photos of design and they want to make some corrections, Will it be possible to make them before sending me final STL files ? Thank you With best wishes, Anastasia
Virtual Prepping: The term refers to the process of preparing teeth in a virtual environment or digitally within the design software. The doctor will need to replicate the same preparations in the actual procedure.
Viewing Designed Crowns on Digital Model: Yes, it is possible to view designed crowns on a digital model and share these designs with doctors through photos, including different viewpoints for implant crowns focusing on the emergency profile. However, it is important for her to specify this request in the specific instructions.
Incorporating Additional Information for Design: Yes, additional information like patient photos showing eyes and smile, and intraoral scans of temporary crowns the patient likes, can be directly uploaded on the script. This helps in tailoring the design to meet specific aesthetic and functional needs.
Making Corrections Based on Feedback: Yes, it is possible to make corrections to the design based on her doctors' feedback before finalizing and sending the STL files. This ensures that any modifications or improvements can be incorporated to meet the precise requirements of the case.
I have an upper arch with 7 Nobel NP implants healed. Taking final impression next with custom tray. Going to use current denture for bite, VDO, etc. I want to have a Harvest Tri-lor framework milled for the permanent framework. (Then likely multilayered zirconium crowns for the teeth.) What do you guys need for design and milling? Obviously the opposing, denture and bite. But how do you want the working model? Final model already poured? Just impression? Mounted on an articulator? I have an Omnicam and a Shining desktop scanner so I could generate virtual models but I believe working with a stone model might be easier for me to learn the workflow. Maybe both? Just whatever makes your job easier and saves me the most money, as the case was done for a minimal fee to help a family friend. Thanks! If we nail this and keep the costs down, expect MANY more of these cases as I do at least 1 surgery/week for full arch fixed implant restorations.
We do not design framework bars. We mill from your design file.
Do you design inlays & onlays
Yes. Please Select Full Crown design service, and specify in the instructions it will need to be an inlay/onlay.
Hello, we are a full service dental lab looking at design options. With outsourcing getting more and more popular we are considering outsourcing as an option. I would like some info on your design work and costs for digital full arch Hybrid cases to full anatomical crowns. looking forward to hearing from you. Root Dental Laboratory Bradley Nordmeyer
We do not offer Full Arch as a design service only, we would like to ensure the mill quality.
For that you can upload your Jaw Scans to any one of our Full Arch Products, and we can design and mill.
For Full Anatomical Crown Designs, you can customize the prescription on this page to find the current design price.
I have a dental 3d printer. Can you design custom trays for me to print here, and dentures too? Thanks.
We do not design Custom Trays (as of 2-1-23). For Dentures, you will need to order a digital denture for fabrication, in order to get an STL file. You will need to request the STL file, in the specific instructions.
I want to know what is available as a service of designing only without CAMing, and their price list please
The prescription offers design services for Coping, Anatomical Coping, Zirconia Lingual, or Full Solid.
The price is determined on those selections.
