When you receive digital impressions, you can start the manufacturing process faster. Shorter turnaround times for restorations keep the doctors in your network happy and your business growing.
Slide between scenarios to see just how much of a difference iTero™ solutions can make in your workflow.
Step 1: Receive iTero scan from doctor.
In minutes,1 while the patient is still in the chair.
Step 2: Inspect digital impression for missing data.
Doctor can rescan specified area without rescheduling patient.
Step 3: Begin digital design and manufacturing workflows.
Using the CAD software of your choice. Optional digital design of model for 3D printing.
Step 4: Finish restoration and send to doctor.
So they can start treatment earlier.
Step 1: Receive PVS impression(s) from doctor.
Days after patient appointment.
Step 2: Inspect impression(s) for defects.
If minor, make adjustments and proceed. If major, doctor must reschedule patient.
Step 3: Prepare stone model mixture.
A time-consuming and messy process.
Step 4: Pour model and inspect for flaws after material has set.
Redo if voids or flaws are present. Section dies in preparation for scanning if the model is flawless.
Step 5: Scan model, enter prescription information, and begin design and manufacturing workflows.
Imagine how quick this process could be with digital impressions.
Step 6: Finish restoration and send to doctor.
Possibly weeks after receiving the original PVS impression(s).

MyiTero’s™ single-user interface allows you to direct your workflow in multiple ways, based on scan quality, case type, or production process.
Optional: Margin Marking
With iTero™ solutions, doctors can "mark the margin" on the scans they send to you — resulting in more efficiency as you begin your workflow.
Scans transmitted in minutes
Once you receive a scan, you control which steps to take next. Need a model produced? Want to export the file directly to your preferred CAD software? You’re in charge.
Export to CAD and begin production
Restorations are delivered to the doctor for patient follow-up.
Optional iTero™ Services
Scan enhancement: There may be cases where a rescan isn’t necessary but the scan could benefit from some enhancing (e.g. a margin could be more clearly defined). Just send the scan to Align for scan enhancement.
Precision milled models: If you’re running at capacity and don’t have time to 3D-print your own models, you can order a precise, high-quality milled model from Align.
