CAD/CAM Systems

Colonial Dental Lab is an active digital dentistry participant. We use the most technologically advanced scanners and design software available today from 3Shape and NobelProcera to efficiently & accurately develop many of our restorative products including full contour designs, frame and abutment designs and high water and overdenture bars.

Our 3Shape scanners provide us with 3D scanning of both physical impressions and gypsum models. It’s a high speed scanner that has the capability to provide the accuracy and detail required for full-arch bridges and implant bars. Its features include a 5.0 megapixel camera, adaptive impression scanning, and texture-capture capabilities. Finally, its full integration with 3Shape’s design software ensures the optimal scan-to-design workflow.

Our multifunctional NobelProcera scanner features a unique scanning technology that provides precision scanning for implant cases as well as complex multiple-unit cases on natural teeth. Using “conoscopic holography” it is even possible to precisely capture steep-angles and deep-cavities. Additionally, for each product type NobelProcera has developed a specific scan strategy for optimal data acquisition to ensure maximum precision fit of the restoration. Finally, it fully integrates with NobelProcera design software that allows us to virtually design our restorations with easy to use, highly accurate software design tools.
