iTero Digital Dentistry
Developed by Cadent, iTero Digital Dentistry technology uses a digital scanner to produce replica images of your mouth. The measurements and images are then used by our team and technicians to create perfectly fitting dental restorations and provide orthodontic treatment. The end result is a faster, more accurate and comfortable experience.
We use the iTero scanner to create impressions for the following treatments:
- Ceramic crowns
- Porcelain veneers
- Inlays & Onlays
How is iTero different to using putty impressions?
Patients sometimes find impressions with dental putty uncomfortable, but Digital Dentistry technology is a much more comfortable solution its as simple as taking a photograph go your mouth. The digital scanner is also more accurate than tray impressions. This means that your Invisalign aligners or restorations will fit your mouth better and work more efficiently as a result.
In particular, Digital Dentistry is beneficial for nervous patients as well as those who dislike the feel of putty in their mouth. The scanner only takes a couple of minutes and doesn’t cause any discomfort at all.
The other key benefit is that it speeds up the process as the digital scans can be transmitted to the laboratory to make your restorations or aligners instantly rather than relying on couriers to transport your impressions.
iTero technology creates a faultless digital image of your mouth, which means the device or restoration can be created with a flawless fit. This in turn will dramatically improve the performance of your aligners, crowns or veneers.
