Make the move to digital confidently with cara

Perfectly fitting restorations require absolutely precise impressions—digital data capture helps to ensure that perfect fit. That's why Kulzer's new intraoral scanner, cara i500, is the ideal partner for digital impression-taking.
Developed in partnership with Medit, cara i500 is more than just an intraoral scanner, it’s a comprehensive digital solution. Cara i500’s cloudbased workflow management system makes the transition into digital dentistry as seamless as possible by facilitating communication and cooperation between dental office and lab.
Digital impression-taking made easy
for the dental office:
The intraoral scanner provides an attractive entry into digital impression-taking with all its advantages in accuracy, efficiency, and productivity:
  • greater precision and improved accuracy
  • process reliability and regular software updates with low cost of ownership
  • improve patient experience and attract new patients with expanded treatment options and the ability to take impressions at any time
  • ease of use, scaling work routines, heightened efficiency
  • state-of-the-art technology at an attractive price-to-performance ratio
  • quick and easy operation—no steep learning curves

Communication and sharing made easy
for the dental laboratory:
Dental technicians are increasingly moving to CAD/CAM production with additive and subtractive manufacturing. The advantages of dentists providing digital impressions include:
  • optimized digital processes for the lab
  • increased effciency through secure communication
  • compatibility and flexibility through open STL/OBJ/PLY data format
  • a more integrated workflow—digitized data can be easily imported into any CAD software
  • significant time and cost savings—designing the restoration can begin right away, without shipping and storage requirements
  • easy and secure communication between dentist and lab
