Making a good first impression is important – both for patient satisfaction and for your bottom line. Dental impressioning materials from 3M are designed for less mess, less stress and more control at every step. Our traditional dental impression materials, tools and kits can help you efficiently create accurate dental impressions for a variety of applications, including crowns, bridges, inlays, overlays and implants.
Get the convenience of "cord-less" retraction while making your patients more comfortable. The extra-fine tip of the 3M™ Astringent Retraction Paste delivers hemostatic paste where it belongs—right into the sulcus—to gently retract tissue and control bleeding.
Working time is more efficient with tools to help you syringe and mix impression materials. 3M™ Intra-oral syringes let you apply wash material exactly where it's needed to capture every marginal detail for restorations that drop into place. Our stationary 3M™ Pentamix™ 3 and portable 3M™ Pentamix™ Lite automatic mixing units dispense quickly and reduce material inconsistencies and voids.
Designed to help you achieve outstanding results on the first take, our impression materials give you more options to fit the way you work. For everyday indications, 3M™ Imprint™ 4 VPS Impression Materials give you the perfect balance of working time and setting time. For your more challenging cases, 3M™ Impregum™ Polyether Materials deliver outstanding flow and highly accurate, void-free impressions.
Even the most experienced clinician can encounter clinical challenges with the dental impression procedure. Our impression troubleshooting guide gives you the information you need to address common issues and make accurate impressions every time.
