When applied properly, technology should serve to improve your daily life. At Crestwood Dental Group, our advanced dental technology helps us ensure convenience, accuracy, and the best possible care for our patients. Here are some specifics about our high-tech offerings for patients in the St. Louis and Crestwood, MO area.
Intraoral Digital Scanning
Impressions of your teeth are crucial for a variety of dental treatments including crowns, implants, aligners, veneers, and more. It was once the case that impressions involved the use of cold and goopy material in your mouth – an unpleasant experience. Now, we use the iTero digital scanning system instead.
This system is superior to old-fashioned impressions in every way.
With digital intraoral scans, patients are able to avoid impression material in a quicker, more convenient experience. Plus, digital scans are more accurate and precise than impressions, allowing us to provide you with better-fitting appliances or restorations.
You have probably heard of 3D printing. This technology has many applications, and we make good use of it at Crestwood Dental Group. With our in-office MoonRay S 3D printer from SprintRay, we can create custom orthodontic appliances, such as retainers and night guards that are tailored to your unique teeth, almost instantly.
Additionally, we can print models for whitening trays as well as wax mockups for custom smile design. Our 3D printing ability is another way we strive to maximize quality and convenience for our valued patients.
