The scan virtually enables the laboratory to align the teeth with the patient’s face.
Whip Mix is now offering the Bellus3D Dental Pro high-quality 3D face scanning solution for dental professionals. The app enables the lab to create customized esthetic and functional smile designs, which provide a visualization for patients.
According to the company, the scan captures the full face and head with high detail and clarity, giving the lab something they have not had before—the patient. The scan virtually enables the laboratory to align the teeth with the patient’s face, and allows them to make more informed clinical decisions for improved dental designs.
The information available to the lab includes 3D Aesthetic Guide Planes, which help with positioning the arches using the anatomy of the patient’s face.
The scan can be used with 3Shape and other design software to virtually articulate the arches using 3D facial features. The result is an integrated view of 3D face and teeth for vertical height size adjustment.
