Conventional vs Digital Impressions
How Does it Work?
The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand. Once your dentist begins the scanning process, it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary.
Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser and in as little as 2-3 minutes renders a digitally perfect, 3-D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures. Through digital software you’ll then be able to follow the progress of the scans including a three-dimensional model of your teeth on our computer screen. The iTero scanner can be used for any restorative treatment including crowns, veneers, inlays/onlays, bridges, implants and orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign.
