The E4D Process
Once our doctors have determined that a one-visit E4D restoration is the right choice for you, the procedure will begin with the preparation of the treated teeth. Instead of having to rely on messy impressions, we can capture digital ones in just a few minutes with the help of our advanced laser scanner, creating much more precise results overall.
Once we have the impressions, we can get to work on designing a custom crown, bridge, inlay, onlay, veneer, or other restoration, depending on your unique needs, with the help of the E4D computer. When this is complete, the information is transferred to the in-office milling unit and used to create the permanent restoration, which one of our doctors will securely place in your mouth, making any needed adjustments to ensure your satisfaction.
E4D one-visit restorations offer patients several valuable benefits when compared to the more traditional process, including:
- When using E4D, we can be more conservative in our care, removing less healthy tooth structure overall.
- Temporary restorations aren’t required, allowing patients to become accustomed to their permanent restoration right away.
- The need for messy, uncomfortable impressions is virtually eliminated.
- E4D technology allows Dr. Gary Goodman and Dr. Jeremy Goodman to create a more seamless and accurate restoration overall for your enjoyment.
Metal Free Crowns
For centuries, gold, silver, and other metals have been used to create dental crowns, but in recent years, dentists have shifted to more aesthetic materials like ceramic and porcelain. At Goodman Dental Care, we offer metal free crowns to restore the look, feel, and function of damaged smiles. A crown is a dental restoration that fits over the top of severely decayed or damaged teeth in order to restore smiles and preserve remaining natural dental structure. Metal free crowns offer a more natural looking restoration, and are a great option for patients who have sensitivity to metals. Thanks to our state-of-the-art E4D system, we offer restorations with all-ceramic crowns in just one visit.
