Before E4D, patients would have to have temporary crowns placed while they waited for their customized permanent crown to be created by a lab. This would entail two to three visits to the dentist to complete the process.
E4D uses extremely sensitive technology to scan the existing dentition to create the most lifelike crown. The software allows the dentist to view and adjust the crown for the best fit, comfort, and utility. The machine then mills the restoration right in the office, using the information collected by the dentist. The dentist can then seat the crown securely, completing the entire procedure in a single appointment.
