We are Revolutionary Digital Workflows and the World's Best Dental Facial Scanner​

InstaRisa’s unique digital workflow solutions are revolutionizing the dental industry by streamlining the process, enabling dentists to carry out more dentures, implant overdentures, and full-arch All-on-X hybrids efficiently, confidently, and with considerable ease.

Not only will this allow you to increase your Full-Arch market share significantly, while getting an edge over the competition, it also is more cost-effective compared to photogrammetry (PIC, ICam4D) and requires far less capital investment for dentists.

InstaRisa’s process represents a paradigm shift in dentistry that will impact most on speed, accuracy and ease of use, eliminating the need for much time-consuming impressions, appointments, back-and-forth communication, guesswork and verification. Digital impressions and scanning technology allow a lot of the work to be carried out on a computer with the patient beside you. Saving time ultimately impacts on your bottom line as you can see more patients. There was a very friendly and supportive atmosphere on the training course and the company treats its people, partners and students as part of the family.

Why are we called InstaRisa?

It started as “InstaSmile” for Dr’s Mirelez’s in-house communication purposes. Once it was decided to share the workflows with the world, it was discovered that “InstaSmile” had been trademarked already.

For the fact the IR co-founders both speak Spanish “Risa” came about – Risa means to laugh, which brings instant smiles to those involved with this unique workflow.

And InstaRisa was born.

InstaRisa’s going to completely change my practice.

InstaRisa offers the most benefit, as far as my work is concerned, in the planning stages: the ability to scan the face, simulate the procedure, and mock-up a new smile for patients – most uniquely, show patients what to expect in advance is a game-changer. It also significantly reduces the guesswork and, as the software does much of the heavy-lifting, building files and layers more rapidly, will save time overall and simplify the process.
