The MetiSmile from Shining 3D is a professional face 3D scanner designed for digital dentistry needs. It boasts fast scanning speed, remarkable accuracy, convenient lightweight design, user-friendly operation, and advanced software. Being a highly efficient and smart solution, the scanner can capture a patient’s facial information from multiple angles in just 10 seconds to simultaneously construct a detailed visual 3D model to assist in clinical diagnosis and enhance dentist-patient communication.


The device employs an infrared VCSEL light source, three regular and one HD texture cameras to create an accurate 3D model that can be further processed in the dedicated software or exported as a separate file. With a totally sufficient scan volume, it ensures maximum efficiency and amount of captured data.

The provided scanning software has an intuitive interface and manifold tools to ensure fast and quality data acquisition, editing, and analysis. For user and patient convenience and time-saving, the program comes with an integrated ortho simulation module, assessment of facial features, automated alignment with intraoral scans, detailed reports, and visual treatment plans.

Considering all the highlighted characteristics, the MetiSmile makes an indispensable tool for digital dentistry. It supports multiple dental scan applications, including maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, medical cosmetology, aesthetics restoration, implants and prostheses, etc.

Read on to find out more about the first face 3D scanner developed and produced by Shining 3D and its main properties.


Scan accuracy

The MetiSmile from Shining 3D is a professional face 3D scanner that is equipped with a powerful IR VCSEL projector, three 1.3 MP data acquisition cameras, and one 5.0 MP HD texture camera. Thanks to its top-quality hardware components, the device is able to produce precise and highly detailed scans with an outstanding accuracy within 50 μm. Plus, the texture camera of the MetiSmile model can accurately record and display facial color that appears realistic to the patient.

The scanner is completely optimized for safe and quality capturing of the human face. With eye-friendly flashless infrared technology, the MetiScan creates optimal conditions for a comfortable scanning procedure. Automatic brightness adjustment ensures realistic face texture.


Scan volume

The Shining 3D MetiSmile face 3D scanner features a decent scanning area for accurate, smooth, and effective data capturing. Specifically, with a working distance of 500 mm, the field of view stands at 210 x 270 mm.


Scanner controls

The MetiSmile face 3D scanner operates through a plugged computer. It adopts a 3.0 USB port, which ensures rapid and stable data transmission. For user and patient convenience, the scanner can be operated both in Handheld and Fixed mode due to the supplied height-adjustable tripod.

For the MetiSmile face 3D scanner, Shining 3D provides the dedicated software that is specially designed for dental application. FScan features a clear user interface with intuitive controls and guided operation throughout the whole process. The program is quite powerful and fast in terms of data processing. Thanks to a number of useful tools and smart functions, it generally optimizes and simplifies 3D scanning workflow with MetiSmile. 

Due to the integrated auto alignment feature, software can quickly combine facial and intraoral scan data (captured with an intraoral scanner), which displays the patient’s dental information in a comprehensive way. The scans are overlapped to provide a better view and perspective for digital smile design that assists in creating more aesthetic restorations.

One of the advanced functions provided by FScan is automatic measurement and comparison of facial features. Capable of recognizing individual facial features, the program can assess changes before and after therapy, which will help dentists diagnose patients and evaluate treatment results more effectively. In addition, visual presentation of the case will improve the patient’s satisfaction with the treatment plan.

Apart from this, FScan comes with a special ortho simulation module that offers such functions as automatic lip extraction, one-click tooth segmentation, etc. The intelligent before and after orthodontic treatment display is enhanced by the integration of the facial scan information.

With mandibular trajectory tracking, the dentist can acquire dynamic occlusion data for accurate diagnosis, design, and treatment. This module includes left and right lateral detection, centric, and open occlusion. The function is optional and currently in development.

FScan is also able to export data for further processing in the most common file formats, such as STL, OBJ, and PLY.
