3D Imaging Technology

Advanced 3D Imaging


Dental Impressions are Gross

We believe patients should not have to suffer through making gooey impressions of their mouth. That’s one of the reasons why we use the iTero scanner to create digital impressions of your teeth in minutes. These impressions are more accurate and allow you to view a treatment outcome simulation.
