CAD/CAM technology

The E4D unit (www.e4dsky.com) in our office allows us to take a laser impression of the prepared tooth. We can design the replacement restoration in the computer using 3-D software and then send the design to our in-office milling unit to mill out a manufactured ceramic block. Once the milled crown is glazed and fired in our ceramic oven, it results in one of the strongest ceramic restoration available (Emax). The fit and finish is excellent and the quality is often as good or better than lab made ceramic crowns. Plus we have ability to customize on site instead of sending the restoration back to the lab, when required.
