Our roots are in restorative

You can take advantage of numerous third-party workflows and solutions simply by connecting through an iTero scanner. Send digital impressions to your lab of choice. Communicate seamlessly with external treatment planning, custom implant abutment, chairside milling, and laboratory CAD/CAM systems. iTero intraoral scans can enhance the accuracy and precision of your downstream restorative process.

Support laboratory production

iTero workflows support laboratory production using patented iTero milled models, laboratory printed models, and model-less direct-to-restoration production. Choose the treatment and lab that are right for your patients’ crowns, bridges, implant custom abutments, veneers, inlays, and onlays. And iTero scanners work with any material, including porcelain, PFM, zirconia, composite, and full gold.

Restorative file interpretation

The iTero modeling process helps to ensure efficient laboratory submission, minimize scan retakes and enable consistent restorative outcomes.

Open STL export

iTero restorative STL files are open to send directly to your lab or to export from your iTero cloud account. iTero scans integrate with cone beam CT data for use with third-party treatment planning providers.

Expansive lab network

Restorative solutions are now more convenient than ever with iTero’s network of over 3,000 laboratories, implant and digital treatment planning providers.

Visualize a better practice

The power of seeing is believing is unleashed through iTero visualization tools. Keep your patients engaged throughout their entire treatment journey from beginning to end.

iTero TimeLapse

iTero TimeLapse technology shows patients how their teeth are moving over time. It can be difficult for patients to notice the small changes that are occurring between appointments. iTero TimeLapse is a great way to keep patients engaged in their treatment by highlighting those changes that they cannot see in the mirror.

Multi-bite scan feature

Maintain natural occlusion while capturing highly detailed multi-bite registration. Then simply export as an STL file for third-party systems.

Perform same-day dentistry with chairside milling integrations


Our collaborations with Glidewell.ioTM and Exocad allow you to export scans directly from the iTero Element interface to CAD software and milling partners, for faster, more precise restorations.

Only available in North America

iTero Element scanner and Glidewell i.oTM chairside milling system is the in-office solution to enhance your everyday restorative experience providing flexibility in the way you prescribe and deliver dental restorations.




Coming soon,
iTero Chairside CAD
with exocad software

The iTero Chairside CAD software has been engineered to provide dental professionals the ability to design and produce precision-fit restorations for their patients via connected, in-office milling systems—just minutes after scanning.

With millions of restorations already generated via iTero scanners, the iTero Chairside CAD software will enable the iTero Element scanner to be far more than just an alternative to conventional impressions—digital intraoral scanning can become the standard for today’s restorative practice.

iTero Chairside CAD software is designed to deliver

  • Convenient restoration design integrated on the iTero Element scanner just minutes after scanning
  • Enhanced patient engagement showcasing 3D crown design
  • Streamlined workflow between iTero Element scanners with integrated restorative design software and market-leading certified milling systems
  • Affordable solution for performing same-day dentistry in the restorative practice

Milled restorative model

  • One model serves as a working model and a master model, enabling soft issue structures to be visualized during laboratory fabrication
  • Exceptional resistance to wear when used in the dental laboratory
  • Resulting models do not break if accidentally dropped
  • Occlusal relation is scanned directly and efficiently transferred to the unique iTero articulator
  • Plaster-like color is similar to conventionally poured models

Digital Custom Abutment Workflows

iTero Certified Connectivity with implant scan body vendors offer dental practices a wide range of workflows with scan body and implant abutment manufacturer options. Clinicians can utilize the iTero system to create a digital impression with their preferred scan body and send it to an iTero Certified Connectivity implant scan body manufacturer. Scan the scan body of your choice and send the iTero digital impression automatically to your selected laboratory seamlessly. Your practice can receive the custom abutment and the final restoration for seating in a single patient appointment.

Our Certified Connectivity Partners support more than 20 implant systems for custom abutment design and fabrication, including:
