Do I have to have the "goopy" material in my mouth for impressions?
NO! At our clinic we use a digital impression tool called an itero. The itero uses a small intra oral scanner to generate a 3-dimensional model of your mouth without having to use standard impression material that many patients find uncomfortable. The vast majority of crown and bridge cases are treated this way now, without having to put any of that “goopy” junk in your mouth.
