E4D technology allows us to restore damaged teeth during a single visit to our office. It makes your teeth stronger and more beautiful — all while keeping them looking natural. Your newly restored tooth will be metal-free, using a high-grade ceramic material that is compatible with the natural tissue found in your mouth.
What is E4D?
The E4D Dentist system is a comprehensive chairside CAD/CAM system that produces inlays, onlays, full crowns, and veneers. A hand-held laser scanner captures a true 3D image of your teeth. Then the doctor, with assistance from E4D’s highly specialized software, creates a virtual model of your new, restored tooth.
The image of your ideal tooth is then sent to a special milling device that we have right in our office. The mill carefully sculpts the tooth inlay or onlay from a solid block of very hard ceramic material. Finally, the ceramic restoration is bonded to your tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry.
Speed, convenience, and quality
There are many advantages of E4D over traditional crown technology.
E4D crowns are made in one visit, which saves you time and travel.
There is no need for a temporary crown, which eliminates significant potential discomfort.
The strong, tooth-colored ceramic materials restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function and closely match the composition of natural tooth structure.
Milled ceramic is stronger than the traditional method of layering and pressing, so your smile will stay beautiful for years!
