Dental impressions go digital

Traditional dental impressions involve biting down into a messy tray full of putty and holding still while it sets – all while trying not to gag. At Burtch Dental, we have an alternative for most cases. Using our TRIOS Digital Scanner, a team member takes images of the teeth using a small wand. The images create a computerized, 3D model of your mouth that can be used to design a custom appliance or restoration, such as a crown or bridge.

TRIOS Digital Scanner

Digital dental impressions are more comfortable than traditional impressions. You can breathe normally throughout the process and there’s no putty involved.


Digital scanning is much faster. The images of your teeth show up on our screen almost instantly and software generates a 3D model of your mouth in seconds.


Digital dental impressions can be sent to the lab to create custom-made crowns and bridges. We can also use them to design appliances like nightguards.


Digital scanning emits zero radiation. The process is safe and well-tolerated by patients of all ages, including children.

Burtch Dental offers expert guidance and genuine care for patients of all ages. Schedule a visit with a Kelowna dentist today!
