What is E4D Technology?

Dental assistant smiling at cameraE4D is a new system that lets our dentist scan teeth and make restorations at our office. By choosing E4D Technology instead of conventional restorations, patients enjoy more convenience and have less time to wait for results. Here is more about E4D in its scanning and milling phases.

Laser Scanning With E4D

Traditional bite impressions are time consuming and can be unpleasant for patients. E4D can create a 3-D model of the teeth with a laser scanning tool that is fast and accurate. Right after the images are made, our dentist can view them on an office computer and refine restoration designs as necessary.

On-Site Milling

The designs made from E4D laser images can be milled from raw materials while patients wait. Porcelain crowns, veneers, inlays, and onlays can be made accurately using this process, resulting in incredibly lifelike and comfortable results. With E4D, patients need only one appointment to get these restorations rather than the two or more visits that conventional restorations require.

E4D optimizes the preparation and production process associated with several restorations. Like conventional porcelain restorations, E4D restorations can last for many years with proper care. Patients can schedule a consultation with our dentist in Northridge to find out if they are candidates for E4D.
