E4D
E4D

The E4D Dentist™ system represents the future of dentistry using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) in the dental office. Needing no impression materials that could potentially create an unpleasant experience for patients—nor any type of powder—E4D enables dentists to use hand-held scanning technology to obtain digital impressions of a patient’s teeth and smile. This method is fast, accurate, and far more comfortable for patients than traditional techniques.

The E4D incorporates highly intuitive DentaLogic™ software that dental professionals use to design the patient’s crown, veneer, or filling from start to finish - all while the patient watches in the office. So powerful is this software that multiple restorations can be completed in a single dental visit! Then, after the design of the restorations is complete, a metal-free, natural-looking material is placed in a milling unit where high-speed, state-of-the-art instrumentation creates a precision crown, veneer, or filling that will fit the patient exactly.  The entire process is so short that the patient receives his or her permanent restoration the same day, in the same visit.

  • Treatment Types

  • Crowns, for decayed, chipped, cracked, or worn-down or discolored teeth
  • Veneers, for worn or discolored teeth or those with gaps between them
  • Fillings (inlays, onlays), for decayed or worn teeth or those with old fillings

Why Choose E4D Dentistry?

  • It’s dentistry patients need and want, the way they want it.
  • CAD/CAM techniques are precise and accurate.
  • Metal-free restorations are natural-looking.
  • Dentists can use conservative, minimally invasive techniques to preserve natural tooth structure.
  • There’s no need for conventional impressions or temporaries.
  • Patients receive their restorations the same day; they don’t have to wait weeks.

Proven metal-free CAD/CAM technology

Metal-free, CAD/CAM created restorations have been used successfully in dentistry for more than 20 years. What’s more, many literature citations can be found to verify that these restorations are durable, long-lasting, and gentle to the tissues of the mouth.

Dexis Platnium X-Ray Sensor
Dexis Platnium X-Ray Sensor

To maximize both patient comfort and ease-of-use, we have chosen the DEXIS digital x-ray system as it has award winning image quality and is designed for maximum patient comfort.  The digital x-ray sensor also allows immediate viewing of the image while using 70-80% less radiation than conventional x-rays. The higher quality image and enhancement abilities afforded with these digital x-rays gives us the capability to easily diagnose issues earlier which means less invasive treatment for our patients. The days of looking at a tiny film on a lighted box are over – we can share your x-rays with you on a computer monitor in full screen with computerized enhancements that allow you to better understand your own oral condition.

We want you to see what we see when we are caring for your oral health. To add to the patient experience in our practice, we also use the DEXIS intraoral camera. This technology allows us to highlight a particular tooth or area of the mouth to point out problems and explain possible treatment options.  The intra-oral camera is not just a diagnostic tool, but it also serves as an educational one too. In the past, dentists have struggled to explain dental decay and other health problems to patients. Most people cannot see well into their own mouths, which leaves dentists drawing diagrams or using props to attempt to explain what is going on in the mouth of their patients. Intraoral cameras provide you with “pictures that are worth a thousand words.”
