3M True Definition Scanner

Fit Rate 99.84% of restorations made from a 3M™ True Definition Scanner digital replica are successfully seated without requiring a remake. (2)


The 3M™ True Definition Scanner is more accurate, and more consistently accurate, than other leading systems (1) — delivering superior full-arch accuracy for restorations that fit. Plus, powerful 3D-in-motion video technology provides a true replica of the dental anatomy with extraordinary detail, allowing you to capture and simultaneously view margins.


The open architecture opens up a wide range of workflow possibilities… giving you multiple connections and patient solutions all from one scanner.

  • Open, secure, cloud-based platform: The 3M™ Connection Center lets you store unlimited files and share them with the partners you choose.
  • Trusted connections and workflows: 3M™ partners with leading manufacturers in the industry to provide trusted and integrated workflows for dental labs or designing and milling chairside.
  • Open STL files: The industry standard file format can be imported into existing design and production solutions—or other programs and systems, giving dentists more material and workflow options.
