Practical facial scanning in your practice

An intraoral scan with photographs is the current imaging gold standard in dentistry as it helps the dentist, patient and laboratory get a good clinical picture.

Introducing a 3D facial scan takes the digital picture to a completely different level. From the patient wow factor through to more engaging conversations with the patient through to more comprehensive treatment planning, a simple 3D facial scan enhances the clinic-patient-laboratory communication. In this webinar, Mark will present an overview of currently available facial scanner options and present a live demonstration of the Shining 3D Metismile Facial Scanner and the associated workflows. Clinical applications will be discussed along with some user experience stories.

  • Applications and benefits of facial scanning
