Conventional Versus Digital Impressions

At Bright Young Smiles, we have made Invisalign® treatment even easier and more proficient with the use of our latest iTero Digital Impression Scanner. This state-of-the-art technology allows our well-trained technicians to take accurate 3D digital images of your mouth. By taking these scans we eliminate the need for impressions, as well as expedite the process of starting your Invisalign treatment.

The iTero scanner is all about patient comfort. It delivers a digital impression that is much more accurate than a routine dental impression without all the hassle. The iTero scanner does not expose our patients to any sort of radiation and is completely safe. The best part is that the iTero scanner is fast and accurate. Your Invisalign treatment is expedited, and the fit of your aligners is far superior than when made with traditional impressions.

The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand.Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser, and in as little as two to three minutes, the laser renders a digitally perfect 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures. Through digital software, you’ll then be able to follow the progress of the scans, including a 3D model of your teeth on our computer screen. The iTero scanner can be used for any restorative treatment including crowns, veneers, inlays/onlays, bridges, and implants, and is the recommended digital scanner that is licensed and intended to work seamlessly with Invisalign.

At Bright Young Smiles, our experience coupled with the use of our updated technology gives you the best possible outcome for all of your restorative and Invisalign treatments.
