Intraoral scanner can simplify the prosthodontic workflow with reduction of time, cost and several steps. However, clinic conditions can affect the quality of the digital impressions, especially if the tooth is prepared with subgingival vertical finish line. This report describes a technique to manage the interim crown and to obtain accurate digital impression of an abutment tooth with subgingival vertical finish line without the use of retraction techniques.
