When you come to Ponderosa Dental Center and meet with your Bend dentist Dr. Joshua Prentice, you will be impressed with our state-of-the-art technology: we just know it. One of the ways we provide a more comfortable, innovative dental experience is by using an exciting piece of technology known as iTero Digital Scanning.

What Difference Does Digital Scanning Make?

Do you dread the dentist because of past appointments where you were made to have gooey dental impressions that only added to your anxiety? That’s now a thing of the past at our dental office in Bend, thanks to iTero, where digital scanning allows for better-fitting restorations in less time. What’s even better? We can use this tool for cosmetic and restorative treatments such as:

If you’re not a fan of the dentist because of messy impressions and how they make you feel, relax and come to see us. We’ve transformed how dentistry is done.

Improvements On So Many Levels

Digital impressions have made their own big impression on dentistry as a whole and patients on a more personal level. Dr. Prentice can easily use iTero scanning to take what we like to refer to as a ‘virtual tour’ of your mouth, collecting highly-accurate 3-D impressions of your teeth along the way. This allows for a more customized approach to your treatment, with restorations that fit perfectly and blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.

A Better Invisalign® Experience for Everyone

On another level, these in-depth impressions can also help to streamline your Invisalign® treatment. iTero gives your dentist in Bend the opportunity to digitally project how your teeth will look after your treatment, so you know exactly what to expect with your results. We can show you why Invisalign® is a proven, preferred method to straighten your teeth discreetly using clear aligner therapy. Our dental office in Bend is specially equipped with the iTero 3-D technology to fit your teeth more precisely for more effective and fast results you’ve been dreaming of. Thanks to iTero and Invisalign®, you can have a more functional bite and:

  • Fewer adjustments
  • Less frequent appointments
  • A shorter treatment time

Are you excited about Invisalign®? Let us show you how iTero can give you a virtual representation of the exact movement of your teeth and how they’ll shift during different stages of treatment.
