What is the E4D machine and how does it change your dental experience?
The E4D machine enables us to eliminate impressions, so no need for uncomfortable impression materials in your mouth. An even greater advantage is the elimination of the temporary crown AND the return visit for the permanent crown. We value your comfort, time and convenience. Temporary crowns can break or come loose while you wait weeks for your permanent crown. You will now be able to get your crown on the same day in one single visit! Rather than relying on a lab to make your crown to your specifications, your crown now involves only two people: your dentist and you.
How does this work?
With the E4D System, we can obtain clean, fast digital impressions of your tooth in a few minutes using a laser scanner. This laser scanning technology is not only precise when capturing all the details of your tooth, but it is also as safe as the check-out scanner at the grocery store. Your impression is saved and used to design your new tooth with the special software.
We "create" your custom crown so that it is a personalized fit using the computer-based design center. From there, the information is transferred to the in-office milling unit, where your crown is made. You can even watch it being made. On the same day, your new crown is permanently placed in your mouth!
