We use digital imaging software in our office, which allows us to take a digital picture of you and use our imaging system to predict how a particular treatment or cosmetic procedure would change the appearance of your teeth. This software is beneficial for patients who are considering cosmetic procedures but are not sure if they’re ready for dramatic changes. Digital imaging also allows us to document your dental case and procedures very well. We take digital images of your face, teeth and smile to provide us with a permanent dental record and to provide a visual documentation of treatment.
HERE ARE A FEW DIGITAL IMPRESSION FAQS
ARE THEY REALLY QUICKER?
With this new technology, we can engineer restorations (crowns, veneers, and fillings) usually in just a single office visit. You will spend less time in the dental chair and no longer have to endure biting into messy trays that take a long time to create.
CAN YOU MAKE A 3D MODEL?
We can make a 3D model of your teeth and gums with the digital impression technology. From your digital impression, we can create a 3D model of your teeth to point out and analyze your dental flaws for correction. We can also show you what your smile could look like with your proposed treatment plan right on the screen so you can see the difference in all your options.
ARE THERE OTHER BENEFITS?
Digital impressions can easily be modified with rescanning the image instead of making you sit through another messy traditional impression. They are eco-friendly as they remove the need for plastic trays and messy impression materials. Also, they can be digitally stored in your electronic dental chart for easy access for future use and comparisons.
