New technology creates natural-looking crowns, veneers, and fillings in a single dental visit.
I'On Family Dentistry is pleased to offer same-day crowns, fillings, and veneers to our patients. At the forefront of dental technology, we recently incorporated the PlanScan E4D Technologies into the treatment options available to patients. As a result, we can take a digital scan of the patient’s tooth, design and create a custom, permanent restoration in the office, all in a single appointment.
We are so excited to bring this technology to our patients; the range of benefits we can now offer is more comprehensive and convenient. The PlanScan allows the doctors to replace conventional impression methods that include an unpleasant material followed by an uncomfortable waiting period. The clean, fast digital scan is obtained in a few minutes through a series of photographic images taken in the mouth.
The scanned information is then transferred to the design center where a 3D model of the tooth is created chairside. The dentist can then design and customize the restoration to fit the patient’s unique characteristics, after which it is created in a milling unit right in the dental office.
The final result is a natural-looking restoration that beautifully fits the surrounding teeth, making the crown, veneer or filling virtually undetectable. The elimination of impressions, temporaries, second appointments, and waiting for the permanent restoration revolutionizes the entire dental experience for both the dentist and the patient. Patients will love watching their new tooth come to life, as well as the convenience of same day dentistry. The PlanScan system empowers dentists to treat their patients with dentistry that truly fits their lifestyles.
The 3-D, imaging system offered at I'On Family Dentistry provides a clear and complete view of all oral and maxillofacial structures, giving the most thorough diagnostic information possible. Our Doctors can more accurately diagnose and predictably treat our patients than with conventional 2 dimensional imaging. Every aspect of the facial skeleton can be evaluated with distortion-free imaging. For the first time patients can see their own anatomy in a real life perspective and it allows them to better understand their own oral health. All of this is done comfortably and in only seconds! This three dimensional dental imaging technology allows us to provide state-of-the-art services to our patients.
