CEREC Same Day Crowns in Schererville, IN
How Same Day Crowns Work
The E4D system is used exclusively in dental offices. To benefit from this type of service, patients need to make an appointment with a dentist using E4D technology. The initial stage involves a traditional teeth evaluation, during which the dentist resents the available options for restoration. Once settled for a crown, bridge, dental implant or veneers, the dentist starts taking pictures of the targeted tooth, neighboring teeth, and opposite teeth using the CT scans, digital radiographs, and visible light scanning. The photos are done using an intra-oral camera which is connected to the computer. Based on the photos, a 3D image of the crown/implant/, etc. is designed by the computer. The information is then sent to a milling center, where the prosthesis is milled from a single block of ceramic. The polishing procedure lasts between 5 to 15 minutes, unlike traditional laboratory-designed prosthesis which takes up to two weeks to return to the dental office.
Once the prosthesis is ready, the dentist fits it in the patient’s mouth. This means that a dental implant, a crown or bridge is a one-session treatment with the E4Dsystem. The digital impressions are far more comfortable than traditional impressions.
Uses of E4D in Dental treatments
E4D is extremely versatile, eases the dentist’s work considerably and decreases the waiting time for the patient. The main uses include:
- Restoration: Crowns, inlays, onlays and veneers are available in just one sitting.
- Implantology: Tooth implant in one session is probably the most appealing thing about the E4D. Thanks to the screw-retained crowns, the dentists can perform the implant in one session and cement the crown onto the implant the same day.
- Orthodontics: The latest E4D innovation is a small intraoral, powder-free camera which enables fast and effective 3D images of all teeth. The impressions can be used for creating straightening devices, especially clear braces (such as Invisalign). The procedure shortens the waiting time for the patient so that the treatment can start in a matter of days.
