Dentists can create customized fittings of crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and other dental restorations using Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM). Through the CAD/CAM technology, your dentist can provide you with the most precise restorations possible.
By using CAD/CAM, your dentist is able to create durable, well-fitting, individual or multiple-tooth restorations. CAD/CAM technology also delivers advantages when it comes to office visits. Traditional tooth restorations may take several days and multiple office visits, but with CAD/CAM technology, we are able to perform single-visit tooth restorations! In just one visit you can have a beautiful, healthy smile.
To learn more about CAD/CAM technology and how it can benefit you, please contact our practice and schedule an appointment with your dentist.
Our office offers same-day tooth restorations with our advanced E4D Dentist system.
The E4D Dentist system is a comprehensive chairside Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) system that produces inlays, onlays, full crowns, and veneers. Your newly restored tooth will be metal-free, as it is made from a high-grade ceramic material that is compatible with the natural tissue found in your mouth.
Using a handheld laser scanner, your doctor can capture true 3D intraoral images without the use of messy powder or putty trays. Your doctor, with assistance from E4D DentaLogic software, will then create a virtual model and plan for a custom-designed restoration. With the incorporation of an E4D mill, your restoration can be created and placed the same day, allowing you to get back to your life and all the things that make you smile.
Speed, Convenience, and Quality
There are many advantages of E4D over traditional restoration technology:
- E4D restorations are made in one visit, saving you the time and inconvenience of multiple visits.
- Since your restoration can be completed in one visit, there is no need for a temporary restoration, 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!
