When you need to repair your damaged smile or improve the appearance of flawed teeth, you will likely need to have at least one impression taken of your bite. These impressions are used by a dental lab or in-office dental milling unit to create crowns, bridges, porcelain veneers, and other restorative solutions. Dentists may also use impressions to design and craft advanced tooth replacement options like dentures as well as protective mouthguards for athletes or those who grind and clench their teeth at night. It’s clear that impressions are an essential aspect of dental treatment planning. Unfortunately, old fashioned impressions had to be physically captured in putty, and they often needed to be recaptured numerous times to get a precise reflection of the smile. Luckily, many dental offices are transitioning to digital bite impressions. These impressions streamline the entire planning and treatment process for most dental services. In many cases, digital impressions are tied into an in-office same-day dental restoration system, like CEREC, which allows your dentist to complete an entire restorative or cosmetic treatment plan in a single trip to the office. In this post, we’ll review some of the many benefits associated with digital impression systems.
