Advantages of E4D
Durable restorations that look and feel natural
At Babineau Dentistry, our doctors can provide beautiful, high-quality restorations such as crowns, bridges and veneers in a single day with the E4D system.
This cutting-edge technology uses computerized processes to design and mill a perfectly fitting restoration in only one visit, often while you wait or have other treatment. The need for messy impressions, temporary restorations and additional visits is conveniently eliminated.
Solid and strong
One of the many benefits of the E4D system is that each restoration is milled from a single, solid block of porcelain, making it resistant to cracks and fissures. The traditional method of pressing and layering to create crowns lacks the strength and durability of the E4D method.
Porcelain reflects light in the same manner as tooth enamel, creating a very natural-looking restoration. Our doctors will stain your new tooth or teeth to match your other teeth to ensure the best esthetic outcome.
Comfortable fit and natural function
Your restoration will be customized with the E4D technology, and our doctors will ensure that it fits comfortably. The single-block milling process creates a strong restoration that functions as well as a natural tooth while being resistant to the cracks and fissures that can occur when chewing.
E4D restorations are made of ceramic porcelain that doesn’t cause allergic reactions, as metal sometimes can. Since there’s no metal, there aren’t any unattractive gray lines at the base of the restoration.
Less discomfort and appointments
E4D restorations only take a few minutes to be created, meaning there is no need for a second appointment, or multiple injections of anesthesia
Faster recovery time with less tooth sensitivity
E4D restorations can be used to restore a tooth that has undergone a procedure, such as root canal therapy. Restoring a tooth immediately after a treatment means there is less irritation, and it helps protect the tooth’s structure and prevents further infection.
Less chance for errors or variation during fabrication
The E4D’s computerized system is precise and efficient. A 3D digital image is sent to the automated milling machine, which fabricates the restoration in just a few minutes. The block of ceramic porcelain is cut and shaped with accurate computer-controlled mechanisms.
