digital dentistry

Classic Craft Dental Lab accepts intraoral scans from clinicians using digital scanning systems that have the ability to utilize the open STL format for restorations. By eliminating inbound shipping and the need to create and digitize a model, you shorten turnaround time while saving money and resources. We offer a 5-day in-lab turnaround for all ZirLifeUSA, ZirLife Aesthetic & Emax CAD cases that do not require a model. We also include a discount on your invoice for each scanned case sent to our lab. Once your case is received and reviewed you will get email notifications on the status of your case.

SCANNING TIPS:

BEFORE SCANNING:

Pack 1 or 0 retraction cord below margin line of prep, ensuring the margin stays visible for the duration of the scan.

Dry the area as much as possible and turn your head lamp or overhead light off to avoid reflections during scanning.

DURING SCAN:

Have assistant blow air onto and around prep site to maintain a dry field for the duration of the scan.

POST SCAN:

Digitally mark margins and section dies; this allows you a chance to review your scan before the patient leaves. Don’t worry about perfection during this step. Margin line can be edited as necessary once the scan has been received and accepted.

Ensure you’ve taken and included a bite scan with your scanned case.

CUSTOM ABUTMENTS:

Ensure the scan body/scan flag is fully seated by x-ray before proceeding to the scanning step.

If the scan body intersects with adjacent teeth and will not fully seat, please contact your scan body manufacturer for further instruction. Cases with a modified scan body will not be accepted.

Please include brand of scan body in notes.
