Traditionally, a dental crown procedure would take two or three visits over a month to complete. We are one of the few dentists in Bluffton, SC to offer same day dental crowns, porcelain veneers and other restorations thanks to an innovative CAD/CAM technology. Using the E4D system, Dr. Hendricks can design, fabricate and place a porcelain restoration in one day!
How Does E4D Technology Work?
With the E4D system, Dr. Hendricks will take a digital impression of your tooth and the image will be sent to a computer. Using sophisticated computer software, Dr. Hendricks is able to manipulate the tooth and design a crown that will fit perfectly. The specifications for your restoration are sent to an in-office milling machine where the crown will be made.
The entire procedure is scheduled in one day – usually with a morning visit for the scan and preparation and afternoon appointment for the final placement of the dental crown.
Is Same Day Dentistry Right For You?
Visit our dental office for a consultation with Dr. Hendricks to find out if you are a candidate for same day dentistry. The E4D technology is used in a variety of restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures including:
- Porcelain Veneers
- Dental Crowns
- Inlays & Onlays (Porcelain Fillings)
Restorations created using E4D are extremely high quality, metal-free (porcelain) and mimic the look and feel of natural teeth.
