At Washington Center for Dentistry, the skilled dentists use iTero Digital Impressions to digitally record teeth after they are prepared for new restorations. For example, the impressions are useful for a tooth that is prepared for a new crown or bridge. iTero also records nearby teeth, as well as opposing teeth, and how the teeth bite together, or their occlusion. The data is transmitted electronically to Washington Center’s In-House Dental Lab to use as the lab techs make crowns, veneers, bridges, inlays and onlays. As a result, the restorations fit more seamlessly and naturally for beautiful, more long-standing results.

What to Expect

Even the most anxious of patients can relax with digital impressions. One of our experienced dentists will place an intra-oral wand into your mouth and move it around to capture images of your teeth. The images will be projected on a chairside monitor that both you and your dentist can view. It’s quick, simple and pain-free with virtually no discomfort.

What are the Benefits?

• Improved quality of the impression for better-fitting restorations.
• Elimination of uncomfortable, “putty-like” impression materials that cause some patients to gag.
• Less time spent in the dental chair.
• Increase in comfort and less anxiety for patients needing impressions for treatment.
• Fewer errors and inaccuracies in impressions that are often caused by the traditional impression-taking process.
• Elimination of factors that affect accuracy in impressions, such as technique and quality of materials. For example, crowns fit better when the impression is an accurate copy of the mouth.
• Scan of entire mouth in minutes.
• Electronic storage of paper-free digital impression, saving space and providing efficient record-keeping.
• Environmentally friendly way to dispose of plastic trays and impression materials, with no need for landfill space.
