How did you hear about us?

How can we help you?

At Hardin Advanced Dentistry, we focus on patient comfort and safety and offer the most advanced systems for diagnosis and treatment. We use the iTero intraoral scanner to produce 3D digital impressions, offering almost instantaneous results for shorter appointments and better outcomes. This high-precision scanner captures thousands of images, automatically knitting the images together to produce a perfectly accurate 3D image of your teeth and gums.

The iTero scanner makes diagnosing dental and oral health problems faster, more accurate, and painless. It also allows us to create tooth restorations without the unpleasant purple goop traditionally used to take impressions. The iTero scanner provides our patients with a more comfortable experience with no need for trays, dental putty, and the nasty taste and gagging associated with older impression methods.

Digital Modeling for a Perfect Impression

Your mouth is scanned with a small, comfortable, radiation-free laser in just moments, producing a perfect 3D impression of your teeth and gums -- for a completely accurate model. This digital impression is used to create perfect restorations including crowns, veneers, bridges, implants, inlays, and onlays that fit and look exactly as they should.

iTero and
Invisalign

The iTero 3D images are also used as the model for a customized set of Invisalign aligners that will slowly shift your teeth into alignment, closing gaps, turning misaligned teeth, and correcting bite problems easily, painlessly, and invisibly. The iTero also allows us to share images that show how their aligned teeth will appear after the Invisalign treatment is complete.

The system provides our patients with far greater comfort. It also allows us to help them better understand oral or dental problems and more easily communicate the treatment needed to restore a perfect smile. As the digital images are immediately available on a chairside monitor, there is no waiting. We do all we can to help you have fewer appointments, better results, and the most comfortable, positive experience while visiting our dental practice.

iTero Scanner FAQ's

What is digital dentistry?

Digital dentistry is advancing our field faster than we ever could have imagined. New technologies and devices incorporate digital and computer-controlled components to replace those of the conventional. CAD/CAM (computer aided design / computer aided manufacturing) is just a small part of digital dentistry. The iTero scanner is just one of many devices that contributes to the rapidly evolving field of digital dentistry

What are the iTero scanner’s capabilities?

The iTero scanner can record your gums and teeth in just a few minutes. The small, radiation-free wand navigates around your teeth to take 3D pictures. Besides making crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and veneers, we can overlay scans of your mouth over time to illustrate tooth wear and tooth movement. We can also three-dimensionally plan where your implant will be placed and get a near-instantaneous simulation of straightening your teeth with Invisalign.

Is the iTero scanner safe?

The iTero scanner does not expose patients to any radiation whatsoever. It is completely safe.

How is the iTero beneficial for me as a patient?

The restorations we place in your mouth are made faster, more accurately, and more easily. Digital dentistry using the iTero scanner is faster, more economical, predictable, and consistent. For you as a patient, the gooey impressions are a thing of the past. We want the best for our patients and we know that the iTero scanner provides us with the means to give you better care.
