Dr. Angela Canfield Introduces E4D Single Visit Crown Technology

(SAVANNAH/RINCON, GA) Angela Canfield, DDS, announces E4D Single Visit Crowns have been introduced to her two dental offices located in Rincon and Savannah, GA. The E4D System is one of the few technologies for the creation of precise, color-matched ceramic dental restorations in one office visit.

Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the patient’s first visit, they get an injection of anesthesia, their tooth prepared, an impression taken and a temporary restoration put on the tooth. Making a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, the patient then gets another injection, has the temporary removed and a permanent restoration put on.

With E4D technology, the procedure is done in a single appointment. This provides many advantages for patient, including: a minimally invasive procedure, fewer injections and discomfort, and biocompatible solutions while fabricating long lasting restorations in a cost effective way. More of the natural tooth is saved as well.

The first step in the procedure is to prepare the tooth. Dr. Canfield removes all tooth decay and creates a divergent occlusal axial wall. Next, an impression is made using a covering of titanium dust. This dust allows the camera to take a highly detailed picture of the tooth. Images are formulated with the E4D system, which utilizes an infrared wavelength. Sometimes a tiny polyvinyl impression is taken as well.

The E4D system has three major components: the acquisition device, 3D CAD software and a milling device. The acquisition device is a high-quality camera and a medical grade computer, which functions to photograph the prepared tooth. Three-dimensional images are created of the tooth on the screen, which Dr. Canfield uses to design the perfect ceramic restoration. The milling device manufactures the custom restoration from the specifications entered into the computer. A ceramic block, which best resembles the existing tooth color is chosen and placed into the unit. Within 15 minutes, the full crown, onlay, inlay or veneer is complete. The restoration is made of compressed porcelain, which enhances the strength and durability.

Before affixing the restoration to the tooth, Dr. Canfield will stain and glaze it to become a beautiful restoration, customized to the patient’s mouth. It is then affixed to the tooth with dental cement. The quality of the results is the same as the laboratory-generated restoration, but the E4D system saves time and money for the patient.
