Dental Impressions

When restoring damaged teeth or replacing missing teeth, we often need to take an impression (or mould) of your teeth. This helps us prepare an accurate restoration that comfortably fits & that matches the aesthetics of your smile.

Getting an impression is fairly straightforward. To expose more of your tooth for the impression, the dentist uses a small retraction cord to move the gums away from it. This is temporary; your gum line returns to its original position once the impression is complete. The final step is to bite into a tray filled with paste to a make a mould of your teeth. This takes a few minutes to set, so be patient!

If you have questions about when or why we might need dental impressions from you, call us today.
