We know our Smithville, MO, patients don’t have a lot of free time in their schedule. Which means they may put off necessary dental treatments. In order to make the process more convenient for our patients, and offer a lifelike restoration, we now create and place crowns in one day.

When Do We Prescribe Crowns?

A dental crown covers the visible portion of the tooth, which means we can address a variety of cosmetic and restorative concerns. For example, we repair cracked, chipped, or broken teeth. We also lengthen worn down teeth and repair decayed or infected teeth as well. We’ve placed them to reshape malformed teeth and to also anchor dental bridges in place. For patients receiving dental implants, they ensure the new tooth looks natural and blends with the smile.

The E4D Process

We start by preparing your tooth, removing a small segment of structure. Then, using imaging technology we create a 3D model using precise measurements. The image is then uploaded into the E4D milling machine, which creates the restoration from a solid block of ceramic. Finally, we check the fit and then place the completed dental crown with a powerful bonding agent. The entire procedure only takes one visit to complete.

A Natural Looking Restoration

We want the newly repaired tooth to look natural and blend with your smile. To accomplish this, we shade the ceramic material to blend with the rest of your smile. Ceramic not only mimics the translucent appearance of natural tooth enamel, but also contains stain-resistant properties and can withstand powerful bite forces. Patients enjoy a durable restoration that matches their smile. If you have any questions about dental restorations, or about the E4D system, then contact our team today. Don’t let your schedule stand between you and a healthier, more beautiful smile.
