Dental Technologies At Your Richmond Dental Clinic

VELScope Richmond Dental Clinic

Velscope Oral Cancer Screening At Your Richmond Dental Clinic

We are happy to have the technology here at Coppersmith to provide a pain-free oral cancer screening to our patients. Oral cancer is more common that many other types of cancer, and with the Velscope technology we can screen your mouth and detect any oral lesions by performing this screening yearly.

It is a simple light that your hygienist will shine into your mouth, which will let us see several layers deep into your tissue, thereby catching cancerous lesions early. This bright light has been endorsed on Dr. Oz and was actually developed at UBC!

iTero® Element Intraoral Scanner At Your Richmond Dental Clinic

The iTero Element Scanner makes great first impressions. This state-of-the-art digital impression system eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth, as we would traditionally use to create an impression of your teeth. With our iTero Element Scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty based impressions, but it’s faster. This system is ideal for crowns, bridges, implants, and Invisalign® clear aligners and retainers.

The iTero Element Scanner Makes Great First Impressions

This state-of-the-art digital impression system eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth, as we would traditionally use to create an impression of your teeth. With our iTero Element Scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty based impressions, but it’s faster. This system is ideal for crowns, bridges, implants, and Invisalign® clear aligners and retainers.

Traditional impressions were messy, uncomfortable, occasionally unreliable and unpleasant tasting. That’s why we’re proud to offer full digital impressions. Not only is a digital impression more comfortable, it’s also much more accurate. The scanner takes an incredibly detailed impression of your teeth and gums.

During the scanning process, you can breathe or swallow as you normally would. You can even pause during the process if you need to. The scanner gives us a 3D model of your mouth that can be used for your dental services including the Invisalign Outcome Simulator to show you what your new smile might look like. Once the scan is complete, your dentist will then have a 3D model of your mouth that can be used to create detailed crowns, bridges, implants, and Invisalign® clear aligners and retainers. The digital accuracy eliminates the need to retake impressions, keeping your time in the chair to an absolute minimum.
