Invisalign relies on impressions taken to determine the treatment protocol for your Invisalign clear aligners. Multiple trays are crafted based on those impressions. Digital impressions are highly accurate and work exceptionally well with the Invisalign treatment program. If you’re interested in straightening your smile without metal braces, talk to us to find out if Invisalign is right for you.

Accuracy is essential in crafting a dental crown that will not only fit perfectly but look great as well. With Trios 3, there is no guesswork with sizing requirements for your dental crown. This handheld portable scanner even measures the shade of the tooth so that we can match your dental crown to blend in seamlessly with your smile. We use dental crowns in a variety of ways, including to stabilize a tooth with a deep filling, such as a root canal. We also leverage crowns in dental implants and implant-supported dentures.
With highly accurate dental impressions, there’s less time in the chair, no need for time-consuming re-takes, and we get accurate impressions and that means the best outcome possible with respect to your dental treatment.
