At Dental Expressions in Laconia, NH we offer E4D Dentist System Technologies, a picture-taking, restoration-making system, to fix decayed, broken, cracked or chipped teeth in a single office visit.
Now you can have full porcelain crowns, inlays, onlays and porcelain veneers made while you wait. Gone are the days of a two-part process of having your tooth prepped for a permanent restoration, and then returning to the office two weeks later to replace your temporary restoration. E4D Technology saves you time and cost by eliminating the need to take multiple days off work just to restore one tooth or several teeth.
How E4D Technology Works
Dr. Columbus will take pictures of your mouth and download the images into the software, which takes the information and uses it to carve out a restoration from a block of porcelain in the office that matches the color of your teeth. This ensures the restoration will be almost invisible. Within 15 minutes, the full crown, onlay, inlay or veneer is complete.
The restoration is made of compressed, rather than laboratory-layered porcelain, which makes E4D restorations four times as strong as traditional crowns. And, unlike traditional crowns, the margins of the E4D crowns blend so well that you cannot feel where the crown ends and the tooth begins. You also won’t notice any discoloration separating the two.
