Our Itero® digital laser scanner is the first step to creating a more precision restoration for you that takes less chair-time to seat, and should last longer in your mouth. Our labs take the digital scan file of your teeth and use CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) to create a ceramic or composite restoration such as a crown, veneers, or Invisalign® aligners. At Dallas Laser Dentistry, Dr. Mary Swift and Dr. Alana Reifer spare their patients the discomfort and time of traditional physical impressions by using digital laser scanned images that accurately and quickly get all the information that is needed to create a custom restoration.

"I LOVE THIS PLACE! I ALWAYS receive the best service. Honestly I never thought I'd look forward to going to the dentist until I found this place. The entire staff is amazing. I'm actually typing this as my numbness from my filling wears off lol Dr. Reifer and Michal made me feel so comfortable and I was kept up to date on what was happening. Also have to give a special shout-out to Carla who is my go-to when its time to go in for cleanings. I LOVE THIS STAFF! The office is so... nice and homey. I love going there, I always arrive with a smile and leave with an even bigger one. I really can't imagine going to another dentist office. Do yourself a favor, and give this place a try. I've been a patient over a year now and won't ever leave. Plus its run by a bunch of amazing boss babes, doesn't get any better than that! Thanks again ladies for all the great work!"- J.D. / Facebook / Aug 30, 2019

"I only came for a consultation, but had a great experience. I wish I had gotten her name, but I believe she was an assistant (red hair) was especially nice and informative. She genuinely cared about my situation and made me feel better overall. Thank you Dallas Laser Dentistry!"- A.Q. / Yelp / Mar 19, 2019
Every new Invisalign® patient, and patients who require a restoration such as a crown, bridge, veneers, or an implant crown, will have their mouth scanned and their restorations created by CAD/CAM dentistry techniques.
What to Expect
During your appointment, we will scan your mouth using our Itero® laser system. When the restoration comes back from the lab, you'll spend significantly less time in the chair as the restoration is permanently placed because the dentist doesn't have to adjust anything - the restoration will fit perfectly.

Laser CAD/CAM FAQs
Benefits of CAD/CAM?
Dallas Laser Dentistry has chosen to invest in CAD/CAM dental technology as part of their commitment to great patient service. CAD/CAM systems can be used with or without local anesthesia quickly and without discomfort to our patients. CAD/CAM dentistry also allows Invisalign® treatment to start much sooner, and the trays are more comfortable, than when traditional mouth molds are used.
Dallas Laser Dentistry dentists only use the highest quality dental labs that have also invested in digital CAD/CAM systems to create the most precise restorations.
Some dentists still use traditional dental impression materials or molds to create restorations for their patient. To create the impression, the dentist puts a dental tray filled to overflowing with impression materials into your mouth over your teeth. Many patients have trouble keeping the tray in their mouth for the required length of time because of their gag reflex. Patients who are congested or have nasal breathing problems also have trouble since they are unable to breathe through their mouth while the impression is being made. And when they pull the tray out of your mouth it feels like your teeth are coming right along with the impression! These impressions are also imprecise, since the material expands or contracts depending on the temperature surrounding it.
