SAME DAY CROWNS

Our state of the art E4D has the capabilities of fabricating esthetic and strong porcelain restoration for such things as sameday crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays. The E4D system allows us to scan your tooth, virtually design the final restoration, and mill your metal free restoration within the same day. This allows our clients to eliminate the any temporary restoration and the need to come back for another appointment.

WHY SAME DAY DENTISTRY?

Traditional dental method take time to prepare, take an impression and place a temporary crown. The temporary crown is usually on for 2 to 3 weeks. A lot can happen within that period such as pain, sensitivity, and breaking the crown. The E4D eliminates any waiting period saving you from having to come back. First, we will examine the tooth and determine what is needed. Next, we prepare for restoration if needed to remove any decay and any weak tissue.

First, Dr. Marquez will inspect the tooth and provide the right treatment. It could be a simple filling, or a full crown, depending on how much healthy tooth structure is remaining. Next, an anesthetic is administered and your tooth is prepared for the restoration, removing decayed and weakened tooth tissue. E4D machine helps Dr. Marquez create the custom restoration for your tooth by taking a digital picture and converting it into a 3D virtual model. We place a ceramic block which matches your tooth shade is put into the milling machine. After the tooth colored restoration is complete the tooth is ready to be bonded. The restoration is placed inside your mouth and properly fitted. This is all done at a single appointment!
