|Same Day Dentistry in Jacksonville|
We are proud to use in our office the latest in E-4D technology capable of fabricating same-day, precision cut, strong and metal-free porcelain crowns, veneers, bridges, inlays, and onlays.
The E-4D system is a state-of-the-art digital scanner, virtual design center, and a milling unit capable of fabricating esthetically and strong porcelain restorations. The E4D system is used to scan the teeth, design the final restoration in our office,
Case 1 - Front Teeth Crowns
|The old crowns and decay were removed. The dark color is from the tooth changing color as a result of an old root canal.
|A digital scanner creates a detailed 3-D image of the patient's teeth by taking multiple photographs.
|The computer generates two ideal matching crowns. We can then adjust size, shape, and color if necessary.
|The final crowns are milled out of blocks of porcelain.
|The final cemented restorations, completed the same day!
Case 2 - Back Teeth Crowns
|This Patient had two crowns that needed to be replaced.|
|After removed the old crowns and cleaning decay, a digital impression was taken using the E4D scanner. |
|The scanner takes photos from different angles to create a 3-D image of the teeth.|
|The software then designs the new crown for the best possible aesthetics and function. |
|Here are the new crowns, about and 1.5 hours later. |
Case 3 - Veneer
|Patient's lateral incisors were rotated inward. To correct this, we decided to place a veneer using the E4D system. Since the E4D system can fabricate thin veneers, no reduction of tooth structure was done.|
| Patient's teeth were scanned into the systems.|
|A veneer was designed to match the adjacent teeth.|
| The final restoration completed with reduction of any tooth structure.|
| Case 4 -Implant Crown|
|This patient's implant was ready to have a crown placed on it.|
|An abutment connector was attached to the implant. The abutment creates the shape of a tooth that has been prepared for a crown.|
|The implant abutment and adjacent teeth are scanned into the E4D system. |
| A precision fitted crown is designed to give the ideal esthetics and function. The crown is then milled out of a high strength ceramic.|
| The crown (the natural looking tooth in the middle) is cemented over the implant abutment.|
Case 5 - Bonded Bridge
| This patient was too young for an implant. As a long-term temporary, we decided to attach a bonded bridge to the inside of the teeth.|
| The patient's teeth are scanned into the E4D system.|
| The software then designs the new bridge the best possible aesthetics and function. |
| The bridge is designed to attach to the inside of the teeth while not altering the patient's bite. |
| The final bridge restoration was fabricated in about 1 hour without the reduction of tooth structure.|
Case 6 -Onlay
|An onlay is a conservative crown. In this case, the patient had fractured off the outside of the tooth. The middle area has a filling. The inside area still has healthy tooth structure.|
|The E4D system designed and mills a restoration to replace the missing tooth structure.Final restoration cemented in about 45 minutes later.|
