A more efficient and productive lab starts with iTero.

When you receive digital impressions, you can start the manufacturing process faster. Shorter turnaround times for restorations keep the doctors in your network happy and your business growing.

Discover the efficiency of a digital lab workflow.

Slide between scenarios to see just how much of a difference iTero solutions can make in your workflow.

Step 3: Prepare stone model mixture.

A time-consuming and messy process.

Pour model

Step 4: Pour model and inspect for flaws after material has set.

Redo if voids or flaws are present. Section dies in preparation for scanning if the model is flawless.

Scan model

Step 5: Scan model, enter prescription information, and begin design and manufacturing workflows.

Imagine how quick this process could be with digital impressions.

Finish restoration

Step 6: Finish restoration and send to doctor.

Possibly weeks after receiving the original PVS impression(s).

The iTero-enabled Workflow.

MyiTero’s single-user interface allows you to direct your workflow in multiple ways, based on scan quality, case type, or production process.


Doctor scans patient

Optional: Margin Marking
With iTero solutions, doctors can "mark the margin" on the scans they send to you — resulting in more efficiency as you begin your workflow.

Scans transmitted in minutes

Lab receives scans

Once you receive a scan, you control which steps to take next. Need a model produced?  Want to export the file directly to your preferred CAD software? You’re in charge.

Export to CAD and begin production

Delivery of restoration

Delivery of restoration

Restorations are delivered to the doctor for patient follow-up.

Optional: Return scans to doctor. If you find issues, like unclear margins or missing scans, you can immediately send scans back to the doctor with notes. An alert will appear on the iTero scanner so they can address the issue while the patient is still in the chair.

Optional iTero Services

Scan enhancement: There may be cases where a rescan isn’t necessary but the scan could benefit from some enhancing (e.g. a margin could be more clearly defined). Just send the scan to Align for scan enhancement.

Precision milled models: If you’re running at capacity and don’t have time to 3D-print your own models, you can order a precise, high-quality milled model from Align.


“The speed of delivery, receiving the case within minutes and reviewing it on the web without having to download anything.”
