COPENHAGEN, Denmark—3Shape and Ivoclar Vivadent have announced the integration of Ivoclar Vivadent’s IvoSmile augmented reality technology with 3Shape orthodontic and restorative applications.

The collaboration enables orthodontists, dentists and lab professionals to take advantage of IvoSmile when using the 3Shape Trios Treatment Simulator for orthodontics and 3Shape restorative design software.

The IvoSmile app, developed by Kapanu, the AR technology specialist of the Ivoclar Vivadent Group, uses augmented reality to visualize aesthetic dental treatments in real time. The visualized treatment options are based on live images recorded with the help of an iPad. The technology allows clinicians to show patients views of themselves before and after an orthodontic or aesthetic dental makeover by looking into a “virtual mirror”, without any obligation. Additionally, the 3Shape Trios Treatment Simulator app proposes a specific orthodontic treatment outcome based on intraoral scan images. 

Clinicians who work with a 3Shape Trios can simulate the orthodontic treatment result using the Trios Treatment Simulator app. Then, the simulated situations are transferred to the IvoSmile app to visualize the proposal in the patient’s mouth. This allows the patient to see the possible treatment outcome in real time, e.g. during speaking or smiling. 

“IvoSmile is a top-notch consultation tool which allows you to actively involve patients and excite them. This increases patient compliance. We are pleased to announce that this technology, apart from being used for restorative treatments, can now also benefit orthodontic treatments thanks to our cooperation with 3Shape”, said Michael Taube, CMO of Ivoclar Vivadent.
