E4D Ceramic Restorations (single visit restorations)

E4D Ceramic Restorations

Same Day Restorations Possible.

No Temporary.
No Messy Impressions.

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 compressed ceramic. It is for this reason that they are stronger than laboratory restorations, which are layered ceramic. The most beneficial feature of receiving an E4D restoration is that it can possibly be accomplished in one visit. In addition to the benefit of a one visit restoration, there is no uncomfortable impression material to bite on or temporary to wear.


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 take a laser image picture. Once this image is captured, the tooth 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. You can actually watch this process if you would like. Once the restoration is finished milling, the doctor will place the restoration.
