E4D Same Day Crowns

No Temporary.
No Messy Impressions.
One Easy Appointment.

is an advanced dental technology that is utilized for the restoration of decayed, cracked, or chipped teeth. E4D can create full crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers. The E4D machine crafts a restoration in a matter of minutes. E4D restorations are made of compressed porcelain.    The most beneficial feature of receiving an E4D restoration is that it is accomplished in one visit.  In addition to the benefit of a one visit restoration, there is typically no uncomfortable impression needed, or temporary crown to wear.


The procedure for placement of a E4D restoration is very simple.  The first step is to remove all decay from the tooth.  The doctor will then shape the tooth in preparation to take a digital picture.  Once this image is captured, the tooth will appear on a computer screen in 3D.  This will allow the doctor to design the restoration, while the patient relaxes in the chair.  Once the design is completed, the E4D machine will mill the restoration.  This step takes approximately 15 minutes.  You can actually watch this process if you would like.  When the restoration is finished milling, the doctor will ensure the fit of the new crown, and then will custom glaze the crown to match your tooth color. The crown will then be cemented in the mouth.  The entire process typically takes under 2 hours.
