As dental technologies continue to improve, it becomes harder to keep up with all of the new and different terminologies and procedures that are available. At Candlewood Dental Care in New Fairfield, Connecticut, we want you to be aware of the best and current treatment options so that you can get the most out of every dental visit.
Dr. Lorraine Burio of Candlewood Dental Care specializes in same-day dentistry using E4D Technology. E4D uses CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) in dentistry to improve the process of designing and creating dental restorations. The images scanned through a laser wand allow for more precision and detail when creating your custom crown, inlay, onlay, or veneer(s.) This means that your teeth will look and feel much more natural than if your restorations were based off of an impression made in a silicone-like mold. You will also be able to get your scans completed, preview the look, and get your restoration done all in one day! The scanned images are sent wirelessly to a sculpting in-office (milling) machine and are printed on the spot. No more scheduling extra appointments weeks later and dealing with temporary restorations.
There are many benefits to using CAD/CAM besides saving time and creating more aesthetically pleasing results. Because the restoration is designed and created in-office, your dentist is able to have full control over the whole process. Your dentist is the most knowledgeable expert on your teeth, and they can make sure that the finished look is exactly what you want.
If you have any questions about getting same-day crowns or veneers done, or would like to learn more about our state-of-the-art technology, please contact us at 203-746-1200 or make an appointment to see us.
