iRIS® Digital Laboratory Process
We are proud to launch the iRIS solution, our vision for the present and future of indirect restorative dentistry!
For the first time in dental laboratory history standardization is possible, regardless of the restorative material you prescribe. At ROE, cases pass through a process of precise digital dental design called iRIS (Intelligent Restorative Individualized System). iRIS produces mechanically sound restorations, engineered to your specific parameters. Here’s how it works: all models and dies are scanned and digitally entered into the system; ROE then uses a single design platform to create your restorations with incredible technical sophistication; we analyze margins under 25X digital magnification, create exacting block-out and cement-space relief, reverse-engineer substrates inside virtual final restorations, digitally shape contact points, and balance occlusal contacts in micron increments using virtual articulation. The iRIS solution allows us to produce any fixed restoration: copings for veneering, full-contour crowns and bridges, even restorations on digitally designed implant abutments. Whether it’s an artistically layered PFM or zirconia crown, full contour emax, TLZ, or gold crown, all restorations will be returned with unrivaled consistency because they are designed within the exact same iRIS process, a process that can be specifically catered to your practice.
iRIS is a philosophy of technology-aided-fabrication, where computers ensure accuracy and engineering fundamentals, while technicians focus on esthetics. This all equates to final restorations that seat with confidence and provide long-term patient satisfaction. As good as this sounds, the best of iRIS is yet to come. Once impression material, die stone and manual die trimming are replaced with digital impressions, perfection can be achieved. Digital impressions allow the restorative team to take full advantage of the iRIS process. In 2011 we plan to offer precise and affordable digital impression technology to our clients.
