How to Take Impressions for e.Max Crowns

There are several different ways to take impressions for e.Max crowns. These are the best ways to do so in order of preference for our dental lab:

  • Impression-free chairside scans for a total digital workflow
    • The crown preparation, as well as surrounding hard and soft tissue, is scanned at chairside and transferred digitally to the dental lab.
  • Hybrid technology
    • Utilizes scannable impression materials and impression trays.
    • Impressions and bite registration are individually scanned into STL files
    • Images are later used to “print” 3D models in the dental lab
  • Traditional polyvinyl siloxane impressions and bite registrations
