At Herndon Smile Design, our dentist and team are committed to improving the oral health of our patients. In our efforts to better diagnose your smile and provide effective treatment, Dr. Amirreza Rafaat uses iTero® digital scanning. This technology is especially beneficial to our patients who wish to use Invisalign® to straighten their teeth. The iTero scanner can quickly show our patients the outcome of their Invisalign treatment.
Have you ever had impressions taken of your mouth? If so, you probably had to press your teeth into an uncomfortable putty-like material. After using the impressions, the doctor would be able to create models of your teeth and potential oral appliances. That whole experience was often uncomfortable and invasive for patients. Luckily, our dentist is able to utilize the iTero digital scanner to mimic the results of tooth impressions, without the invasiveness of that old method. The iTero digital scanner is a small, digital wand that takes three-dimensional images of the inside of your mouth. It captures high-quality images of your teeth and its supporting structures. The images are uploaded digitally, allowing us to quickly diagnose problems with your smile, build models of your teeth and create appliances for your teeth that fit and look great. If you are interested in seeing the benefits of the iTero digital scanner in Herndon, Virginia, call our office at 703-464-0000.
