CloudPoint offers dental labs the most affordable means of providing the CAD/CAM-produced restorations that doctors demand.

Glidewell Laboratories, industry-leading provider of dental laboratory products, announced today the launch of its CloudPoint™ family of equipment, software and services. By enabling the digital production of monolithic zirconia crowns & bridges, CloudPoint offers dental labs the most affordable means of providing the CAD/CAM-produced restorations that doctors demand. Installation of CloudPoint FastScan™ unlocks a digital portal through which cases can be scanned, managed and produced. After scanning each case, users can design full-contour restorations with precision using state-of-the-art FastDesign™ software. Or, with the simple push of a button, cases can be sent to CloudPoint, where experts with years of CAD/CAM experience are available to create the exact restoration requested by the doctor.

CloudPoint FastScan is the most efficient, accurate way to scan cases for CAD/CAM production, completing scans at twice the speed of competing systems while capturing details in exceptionally high resolution. The scanner’s design allows for simultaneous scanning of the solid model, opposing model and die, reducing the total number of required scans. Further, its open air scanning platform accommodates large articulators. For a low-cost initial investment, joining the monolithic revolution is virtually as easy as plugging the scanner into the wall. Completion of a simple setup process connects users to a cloud-based system where labs have complete control over their newfound digital caseload.

Cases are automatically uploaded to the cloud upon scan completion, from where they can be designed by the lab or forwarded to a CloudPoint specialist. FastDesign software equips technicians with a complete set of tools with which full-contour crowns and bridges can be designed to meet the distinct needs of each case. Users have access to a collection of time-tested, proven tooth libraries garnered from millions of restorations digitally produced at Glidewell Laboratories. As cases are processed, FastDesign incorporates each individual doctor’s preferences so they can be automatically generated in subsequent restorations. FastDesign software affords complete artistic control to the technician yet streamlines the design process with intuitive features that make defining details like margin lines, cusp tips, insertion direction, and contact geometry a cinch.

Upon approval of the restorative design, cases can be outsourced for fabrication or readied for in-house milling. CloudPoint seamlessly integrates all major aspects of production, providing labs a centralized, easy-to-access location where cases can be stored, modified and closely monitored through completion. Technicians have access to real-time case status as restorations move through production, allowing labs to quickly respond to doctor needs and requests. Cases can be managed from virtually any device with internet access, and FastDesign software can be installed on additional computers, enabling easy expansion as the lab’s digital caseload expands.

With CloudPoint, labs need nothing more than an internet connection to begin offering monolithic restorations. This flexible system represents a breakthrough both in price and performance, offering labs an economical means of transitioning to CAD/CAM dentistry. Because the entire digital workflow is cloud-based, there is no need for in-house IT support, server space, and the other technological resources that are typically required to produce full-contour crowns and bridges. CloudPoint ensures a seamless, uninterrupted digital workflow so labs can focus on growing their customers.

CloudPoint is a complete, one-stop solution that positions labs to be competitive in the monolithic marketplace. It allows the restorative process to be managed through a single entry point, from initial scanning to final delivery of the case. Labs have the flexibility to choose their level of participation in the digital production process, with the option to scan, design or manufacture full-contour crowns and bridges. As the customer base expands, CloudPoint users are positioned perfectly to add milling units so monolithic restorations can be fabricated in-house. CloudPoint represents the simplest, most affordable means of accessing the future of laboratory technology.
