To fabricate your crowns and bridges we use a system called iTero scanner, which consists of a digital camera that is used to capture the three dimensional shape of your teeth. The end result is an extremely precise reproduction of your teeth which results in a very accurate fitting crown or bridge, and we don’t need to resort to gooey impression materials.
iTero scanner—powered by proprietary imaging technology—enables the dentist to take a powder-free digital scan of the patient’s teeth and bite, make any necessary adjustments in real-time, and then transmit the file via a wireless Internet connection to a laboratory for further processing.
From there a precision milled model is created and shipped to the laboratory within 48 hours. The laboratory may also import the iTero STL file into their lab based cad/cam milling systems for direct production of copings and full coverage cad/cam restorations.
