A dental crown is a type of smile restoration that fixes tooth disease, discoloration or fracture. Also known as a dental cap, it has a shape of a natural tooth to fully cover and restore its function and esthetics. Crowns are permanently cemented on top of the treated tooth or implant in restoring the natural smile of the patient.
Today, a dental crown restoration has never been easy, precise, and accurate. Access to advanced and modern equipment makes it more convenient for any dental practice. In restorative dentistry, dentists are investing to acquire equipment that enhances our chairside workflow such as the iTero Element 5D scanner
.Also, dentists use 5D Scanner to take digital models for Invisalign where you can see the image immediately of how your new smile will look.
Advantages of using 5D scanner for dental crown restoration
A small intraoral 5D scanning piece is used to take digital impressions. No more messy impressions or moulds and gagging! This latest technology processes images within minutes and the digital model displays on the screen for the dentist to evaluate. Once the dentist captures all details, he sends the model of the dental crown to the dental laboratory.
Detects caries and lesions without releasing radiation
The iTero 5D Element scanner has near-infrared imaging (NIRI) technology which detects as well as monitors caries and lesions in the mouth. As dentists scan the patients’ teeth, cavities are also detected in between teeth and along the gumline. Yet this equipment does not release harmful radiation, giving patients optimal dental care.
The 5D scanner has great visualization capabilities that allow dentists to easily share what they see to their patients. As a result, patients understand their oral health better and they accept the proposed dental treatment.
Having the iTero Element 5D scanner is essential in every dental practice to enhance the patient experience in every restorative and orthodontic work. Visit your Toronto dentist today and experience 5D scanning technology for your tooth crown restoration and Invisalign treatment.
