What it is. It is a cosmetic crown that is completed in one visit (instead on needing a second visit two weeks later).
Why we do it. We offer one-visit (or E4D) crowns for several reasons. Because your final crown can be seated immediately you avoid the hassle of a temporary crown, as well as the waiting and returning for a second office visit several weeks later. Unlike conventional impressions that can be messy, unpleasant, and cumbersome, a digital scan is clean and fast. The materials used in an E4D crown are porcelain. The same material used in a traditional crown.
What to expect. Your visit will be pain-free and you can return to work or your regular activities immediately.
