Kapanu Virtual Mirror Engine

We developed advanced technologies to make your dream products come true!

Real-time image processing

Kapanu is the world’s first and to date only company offering real-time dental Augmented Reality visualizations. This requires a fully automated processing using deep learning technology. Our solution runs across platforms on PCs and even on mobile devices!

Realistic Rendering

Applying the latest rendering technology from the movie industry and computer games, our dental 3D models look highly realistic.

Shape editing with a simple stroke

Modification and definition of the incisal line and the gum line are easily done with a finger or pen stroke, allowing extremely fast geometric modifications.

3D dental models

We use dental 3D models which are projected onto a 2D image of the face with the correct point of view. This allows the full potential of dental 3D models while keeping the facial image realistic.

CAD Link

Export the dental 3D models from AR to CAD systems and import from scanners or CAD systems.
