Making a Great First Impression

Even under the best of conditions, traditional impressions were still uncomfortable, occasionally unreliable and unpleasant tasting. That’s why we’re proud to offer goop-free, full digital impressions with the revolutionary iTero® Element™ Scanner. 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. 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. This digital accuracy eliminates the need to retake impressions, keeping your time in the chair to an absolute minimum.

How iTero Works

  1. THE WAND Your dentist uses the iTero Element Scanner’s wand to capture images of your tooth surfaces and gum tissue.
  2. THE SCAN You and your dentist can follow the scanning progress on the screen.
  3. THE 3D MODEL The completed scan is available as a 3D model that your dentist can use to begin planning your Invisalign treatment.
  4. THE INVISALIGN OUTCOME SIMULATOR Visualize how your teeth may look after Invisalign treatment. Seeing the “end result” before you decide can take the guesswork out of your decision and put you on the path to the smile you’ve always wanted.
