Digital Impressions: Say No to the Goop!


iTero digital imaging screenTaking dental impressions at Incredible Smiles just got easier! We can now scan your mouth for anything from a simple crown, to Invisalign in a few minutes with the new iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner. Imagine seeing models of your teeth with just the touch of a screen monitor, and rotating the image in a 3D format. It is so fun!

We take pride in offering our patients the most state-of-the-art technology available.

Digital scanning is my new favorite technology at Incredible Smiles, and I’m proud to say that we’re the first general dentistry practice in Boulder, and one of the first in Colorado to use it. The last time I was this excited about technology was when I switched to digital x-rays many years ago. Now, with the iTero Intraoral Scanner, we no longer have to put patients through the process of biting down on goopy molds to make impressions.

Every guest in our practice who has experienced our old method of making impressions and then digital scanning, has been amazed at the iTero Element Intraoral Scanner’s precision and ease. The impression process is so fast that most patients don’t even know we have captured the information. “That was it?” is what I hear most clients say!

What are the benefits of iTero Element Digital Impressions?

  • Improved Accuracy – helps improve the fit of retainers and Invisalign aligners
  • Improved Comfort – no goop, no mess, no gag, less invasive than traditional impressions
  • Increased Safety – no exposure to impression materials
  • Quicker Results – see 3-D scans immediately

The new iTero Element Scanner is fast and accurate. You will be in and out of the office more quickly, and with more comfort. The scanning technology ensures the most accurate fit for restorations in your mouth. In fact, you cannot get better accuracy anywhere in dentistry today. The scans are sent over the Internet, and the final product that is sent back to Incredible Smiles is superior in fit and design.

Digital impressions, a healthy alternative to 'the goop'

We take pride in offering our patients the most state-of-the-art technology available. With the iTero Element digital impression system, you can say goodbye to messy, unpleasant and uncomfortable traditional impressions. We can now take 3-D digital images of your teeth and bite, which helps us create a personalized and more accurate model for retainers and other appliances. The digital scan can also be used for Invisalign treatment.

This is the most exciting technological addition we’ve seen in years at Incredible Smiles. Schedule your free consultation, and see for yourself what a difference digital impressions make!
