iTero Dental Crowns
Conventional dental crowns are fitted in two sittings with the dentist. The first sitting involves tooth preparation and placement of a temporary crown. The second sitting comes a few days later when the dental crown has been produced in the laboratory. However, this two-sitting procedure can be cumbersome for many people who are hard-pressed for time, or who do not wish to spend a lot of time at the dentist’s office.
Now there is an advanced technology in dental crowns known as Itero crowns. With this technology, it is possible to have the crown placed in a single appointment with the dentist. StarBrite Dental specializes in providing Itero crowns and Dr. Munira is a recognized expert for Itero crown treatment.
There is a special Itero machine that allows Dr. Munira to create a digital image of the prepared tooth, and a customized crown is designed with its help. Thereafter, the design data is sent to a milling machine, which produces the perfect ceramic crown with the given specifications.
Once the crown is ready, Dr. Munira can place the crown over the prepared tooth. Therefore, the entire procedure is easily and efficiently accomplished in only one sitting.
Advantages of iTero Crowns
Itero is a much more efficient and speedy alternative to traditional crowns. It eliminates the need for two visits to the dentist’s office, two applications of anesthesia, two occasions of leave from work, and avoids the need for wearing temporary crowns. It also saves the expense of a lab technician and a second visit to the dentist. In terms of quality, Itero crowns are very strong and durable. Since it does not use any metal, the Itero crown is also aesthetically appealing.
Integration of iTero Technology
To create digital impressions, our dentist utilizes ITero, a specialized 3D impression scanning device that can take full arch scans in as little as 60 seconds. This technology can be used in many areas of the dental practice, and eliminates the need for messy manual impressions and molds performed at other dental practices in the area. Integrating ITero technology ensures a better patient experience and precision impressions for the creation of Itero dental crowns and restorations.
