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.
