Plano, TX cosmetic dentists, Dr. Ron Bosher and Dr. Tim Nguyen, utilize the latest equipment in dental technology. iTero allows Dr. Bosher and Dr. Nguyen to take a 3-D digital scan of a patient's mouth, which provides an accurate image of the teeth and the bite without taking any impressions. This powerful technology provides the dentist complete precision and control to create beautiful all ceramic restorations that fit almost perfectly.

How it works

3-D digital scanning uses a laser to scan all aspects of the tooth being treated. Then this 3-D image can be sent to the laboratory for the restoration to be made at a later date or it can be milled with the CAD/CAM in our office and delivered the same day.  This is where you get the terms “same day crowns” or “crowns while you wait”.

Why iTero

This highly advanced dental technology allows dentists to create accurate scans of the mouth without messy molds, which can be very uncomfortable for patients. In addition, it often takes more than one try to get the mold accurate. iTero is so precise, that one scan is typically all that is needed to get a complete visual of every tooth, the arch and bite, and significantly improve the patient experience.
