At Naperville Dental Specialists, we’re an impression-free office. We use state-of-the-art iTero® technology to safely and comfortably take 3D digital images of your teeth and bite. This eliminates the need for traditional impressions, which means no more gagging while biting down into a gooey, messy tray of putty. Plus, these digital images are much more precise, saving you time and allowing us to create the highest quality, custom restorations.
How Does iTero® Work?
The iTero® scanner features a handheld intraoral camera that we simply glide across your teeth. It takes high-definition, digital images in seconds and doesn’t emit any radiation. The scans show up almost instantly on the screen and we’re able to see a 3D model of your mouth. We use the model to craft customized restorations, such as porcelain veneers, crowns and dental bridges, that look exactly like your natural teeth and fit perfectly.
As we glide the compact, lightweight wand across your teeth, it snaps images of your teeth and gums while in motion.
Since the scans are digital, they show up almost instantly on our screen and you’re not exposed to radiation.
We get a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums, so we can make precise-fitting, lifelike restorations.
We can even show you what we’re seeing, which improves communication and lets you know what to expect.
