E4D DENTIST: Same Day Crowns, Veneers, & Onlays

Same day dentistry delivering Exceptional Quality and Convenience

Same day cutting edge cosmetic dentistry has arrived at Riverbend Dental Center! Forget those weeks of waiting for your crowns and veneers to come in, having to wear temporaries, and making multiple trips to the dentist. Thanks to the E4D, Riverbend Dental Center can now design, mill, and fit your crown or veneer in just one visit, creating beautiful natural looking restorations that can blend in seamlessly with your smile… No one will ever know it's not the real thing! Your restoration is custom designed, custom milled, and custom color matched in just one visit, meaning no temporaries are needed! Dr. Schmidt uses the best most durable porcelain, which means if taken care of properly, your restoration can last for years, and even decades.

"The E4D has really revolutionized dentistry. What we can now offer the patients is the most beautiful, natural looking crowns and veneers, and we can, in most cases, do it in one day. Its same day dentistry for procedures that used to take weeks or months, but most importantly, this system actually means a better quality, natural looking restoration that can be custom designed, colored, and fitted right in the office. We can really design the restoration to look like the real thing. And the best part about this design and milling system being located here in our in house lab, is that if a restoration is the slightest bit off in terms of color or fit, we can take it back into the lab, make the minor adjustments, and bring it right back into the patient's treatment room. A minor adjustment before could have taken weeks before the E4D, because we had to send it back to the out of town lab, wait for it to get adjusted and sent back, and it meant rescheduling the patient for another appointment, often requiring the person to take an additional day off of work. Now, we walk a few feet and the adjustments can be done in usually a matter of minutes. It's dentistry of the future happening right now," said Dr. Glenn Schmidt. Dentistry will never be the same thanks to the E4D!

So how does the E4D work? In 3 simple steps, the process is complete, and a beautiful, natural looking restoration is created.

Scan. Design. Mill...Done.

Scan.

Scanning the patient's tooth or teeth is the first step in the E4D process. This powder-free scanning of hard and soft tissues can be done in just minutes. The result? Digital, mess-free impressions, Multiple scans from multiple angles for high accuracy, and Smart Scan Technology™ which analyzes millions of data points.

Design.

DentaLogic™ state-of-the-art software is used to design a 3D model of the restoration, allowing Dr. Schmidt to customize a beautifully fitted, natural looking crown, veneer or onlay. "This software is truly amazing. It allows us to see a high resolution 3D version of every single aspect of the tooth and restoration. We can spin it around and see views of the top, bottom, sides of the tooth, the inside of the tooth, and zoom in to see the smallest details, which means we can manufacture a beautiful, natural looking restoration," said Dr. Schmidt.

Mill.

Inside Riverbend Dental Center's in house lab, you'll find the milling system that actually creates the patient's restoration. After Dr. Schmidt designs the 3D model of the restoration on the computer, with the click of a mouse he can send it right to the mill center, where the restoration is created in under 15 minutes. The milling process starts with a porcelain, purple-toned block, and from that a beautiful new restoration is created that, when finished, is a tooth-colored restoration that is then custom painted to create a natural looking tooth. Dr. Schmidt can even paint small, detailed characterizations to match the restoration to the other teeth, and make it look as natural as the real thing!

Done.
