DenMat Lab easily accepts intraoral scans from clinicians using digital scanning systems that have the ability to utilize the open STL format for all restorations including Lumineers®, LumiZir® Crowns, Snap-On Smile® and all crown and bridge work. Having the ability to accept intraoral scans provides inherent advantages including greater predictability and accuracy and instantaneous data transfers to our lab. By eliminating inbound shipping and the need to create and digitize a model, you shorten turn-around time while saving money and resources.

DenMat Lab accepts digital files from most major digital impression systems. Alternatively, complete a prescription using our Lab Online portal when sending STL files directly to the lab.
2. Scan Case
The DenMat Lab works seamlessly with a number of digital chairside impressions systems. No matter your intraoral scanner of choice, you can assure that your cases will be executed with expert artistry and precision.
3. Track Case
DenMat offers our Lab Online portal to track the progress of your cases and serve as a communication tool between your office and our lab. In order to use Lab Online, you must first register or sign in then enter your case into the online system.
In order to track a case in the portal, the case must first be entered in the portal. To track a case not entered into the portal you must call the lab. Once we receive and review your cases, they will automatically be updated and you will receive email notifications until delivery. Lab Online does not take the place of one-on-one communication with our technical team; it is simply to keep you informed. If you need help or immediate attention, please do not hesitate to call us directly at 800-872-8384. We are here to serve you. Likewise, if we have questions we will contact your office directly.
