E4D Same Day Dentistry in St. Charles, IL
One Easy Appointment
E4D 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 an EMAX material-which is a lithium disilicate. The most beneficial feature of receiving an E4D restoration is that it is accomplished in a very short amount of time. In addition to the benefit of a one day restoration, there are no temporary crowns to be made and worn for several weeks.
The procedure for placement of an 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 receive the new restoration. Images are captured, and then they will appear on a computer screen in 3D. This will allow the doctor to design the restoration right in front of you. Once the design is completed, the E4D will mill the restoration. This step takes approximately 25 minutes. When the restoration is finished milling, it is then glazed and customized to match your surrounding teeth. Then, the Dr. will bond the restoration. The entire process should take just a few hours for a single tooth.
Thanks to this new technology, processes that used to take multiple visits can now be completed in as little as a few hours. The process is quick and simple, and your restored teeth will look like a more natural match than any outdated technology you could desire.
If you break a tooth, you can walk into our office and leave in a few hours with a new, permanent and natural-looking crown. There will not be any metal line at your gums and there is no need to wait three weeks with a temporary crown while your permanent crown is being made. This new technology is making dental procedures easier and more clinically superior!
