iTero
Used to be good and dependable. Initially, because of their excellent scanning technology, which did not require powders, and their open format, not proprietary digital files, they provided a very accurate model which was nearly indestructible. The laboratory had to really try to distort a die. They must have moved their operation because their service has deteriorated, they have been late with the scans causing delays in treatment, and they keep asking for additional scans when the scans they were given were without flaws. I have owned the system for over six years and have a very good idea when there is a problem with an image. When the capture is accurate and my machine indicates this, there is no reason for them to write back days later requesting retakes. They changed the software and it has been much less reliable than before.

iTero after 5 years
I have used this system for the past 5 years now and find it my go-to impression method for 95% of my crown and bridge impressions. What it will do is take impressions from quarter arch to full mouth impressions or prepared teeth and implants (when not doing a transfer). It can be used for digital impressions for some implant related crowns when using custom milled abutments. Does not require powder for the scans. models of thin or narrow teeth are much better for the lab to work with and gone are the days of the lab breaking off those preps and having to work from second pours of impressions. What I have had to rely on conventional silicone impressions for are crowns to fit existing Removable Partial Dentures and fairly mesially tipped molar preparations. Additionally, teeth that must be prepared deeply subgingival are sometimes problematic and require traditional impressions. Overall I would not want to go back to having to use silicone impressions for the majority of my cases. The choice of having a model made or having individual crowns made "modelless" is a cost saver.
