If you’ve ever had braces, you probably remember the pink putty in a tray that was used to take your dental impressions. For most patients, having a cumbersome tray of pink goop pressed against the roofs of their mouths is enough to trigger their gag reflex. Thankfully, you don’t have to deal with that anymore with our digital dental impression technology.
Digital impressions are usually taken when a patient needs dental crowns and dental bridges. Our dental digital impression scanner is able to help Dr. Yun map out the surface of your teeth and gum tissue. If you are in our office for a dental crown, you’ll be able to appreciate how much faster your impressions will be sent to the lab. Instead of having your impressions sent via snail mail, we are able to send your dental images directly to the lab.
Dental crowns created from digital dental impressions are more accurate, which means that they precisely match the unique shape of your teeth. Our digital impression technique in dentistry will help ensure your new dental crown fits perfectly.
If you are interested in learning more about our digital impression services, please feel free to call our Grand Rapids dentist at (616) 288-6134. Dr. Yun at NorthPointe Family Dental is dedicated toward helping patients achieve their best smile by offering quality dental services.
