Optical dental impressions

Optical dental impressions is an innovative technology that makes it possible to make a high-precision model of a patient’s mouth. The impression is made using a device that scans the patient’s mouth and creates a 3D model of their teeth and gums.

The digital 3D model created by optical impression is very accurate, which makes it possible to create dental prostheses such as veneers, crowns, onlays or orthodontic appliances tailored to each patient. It also allows a 3D visualization of the patient’s teeth and gums, which can be useful for planning complex dental treatments, and for performing simulations, such as a smile design.


Optical Impressions: Putting an End to Uncomfortable Impression Paste

Forget about the discomfort of thick paste in your mouth during traditional dental impressions. With optical impressions, enjoy a more comfortable, quick, and precise experience. This advanced technology also ensures better-fitting prosthetics for a perfect smile.

The Advantages of 3D Modeling

Here is a list of the advantages of optical dental impressions compared to traditional dental impression made with paste:


  • Accuracy : The optical dental impression is much more accurate than the traditional dental impression, resulting in higher quality dentures and braces.
  • Speed : The optical dental impression is much faster to perform than the traditional dental impression, which can be appreciable for patients.
  • Comfort : the optical impression is much more comfortable for the patient, who does not have to suffer the unpleasant sensation of the paste in his mouth.
  • 3D visualization: The optical impression is used to create a 3D model of the patient’s mouth, which can be useful for planning complex dental treatments or for visualizing teeth and gums accurately.
  • Communication with the patient and the dental laboratory is facilitated.


In summary, optical dental impression is a cutting-edge technology that offers many advantages over traditional dental impressions. It makes it possible to make precise impressions and create custom-made prostheses and orthodontic appliances, while offering maximum comfort for the patient. If you want to know more about this technology, do not hesitate to make an appointment in our dental clinic in Geneva to discuss it with our dentists.
