DIGITAL IMPRESSIONS

One of the dental procedures that patients most commonly tell us they dislike is the taking of impressions. Traditional impressions require the placement of a tray filled with a soft putty-like material in the patient’s mouth, which then takes five minutes to set.

Cooper Moss Advanced Dentistry’s digital technology is a recently developed alternative to this traditional method of taking impression for crowns, veneers and bridges. A digital impression is taken when the dentist or assistant scans the desired teeth with a hand-held scanner instead of placing a tray in the patient’s mouth. The information is recorded in a software program, checked for accuracy by the dentist, and then sent electronically to one of our licensed laboratories for construction of your restoration.

This process makes your experience more pleasant and comfortable, the construction of the laboratory work more accurate and efficient, and the resulting restoration more predictable and long lasting. These are significant benefits for you and the dental team.

At Cooper Moss Advanced Dentistry, we use two different digital impression systems in order to deliver the best possible outcomes to our patients. The Sirona-Connect Scanner and iTero Scanner systems link us with our local laboratories and two major manufacturing networks for the finest in modern crown and bridge restorations.
