E4D Crowns in a DayKing George, VA
What is E4D CAD/CAM?
The E4D system is a state-of-the-art digital scanner, virtual design center, and a milling unit capable of fabricating esthetic and strong porcelain restorations. This system provides us with the capability of delivering same day porcelain crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays to you using the latest in technology and clinically proven materials. In contrast to conventional porcelain restorations, which often taken two full appointments to restore a single tooth, the E4D system enables us to scan your tooth, design the final restoration virtually, and mill your metal-free restoration with precision in just about an hour. This eliminates the need to wear a temporary for weeks and come back for another appointment.
Why same day dentistry?
Conventional dental methods of placing crowns usually require two appointments. During the first one, the dentist prepares the tooth, takes an impression and places a temporary crown. The temporary is usually on for 2-3 weeks. During that time lots of things can happen: the tooth may become sensitive or start hurting, it can break, or the temporary may pop off. The E4D system eliminates the waiting period for a final restoration. Saving you from possible discomfort and the time of having to come back.
For example, a patient had two failing crowns on her front teeth and needed same day replacement crowns.
The computer generates two ideal matching crowns. We can then adjust size, shape, and color if necessary.
The final crowns are milled out of blocks of poreclain.
The final cemented restorations can then be completed the same day!
We invite you to call (540) 808-1303 and schedule your appointment today.
