Dr. Thomas Tang and our team of dental professionals strive to deliver an enjoyable, comfortable, and brisk dental experience for every patient who enters our office. We recognize the need for reliable dental care, but also understand that time is precious these days. For this reason, we offer CEREC® one-visit dental crowns to patients in Brookfield, Milwaukee, Madison, and other communities throughout Wisconsin. Thanks to CEREC® technology and our accredited cosmetic dentist, Thomas Tang, DDS, patients who visit us in pain can leave the same day in comfort with a new dental crown, inlay, or onlay.
Please do not hesitate to contact us at (262) 821-1000 if you are suffering from tooth pain or are in need of dental work.
CEREC® One-visit Dental Crowns
The placement of traditional, standard dental crowns usually requires two visits: one to prepare the tooth and place a temporary dental crown while the permanent crown is being fashioned at a lab, and a second to remove the temporary crown and affix the permanent one. CEREC® (or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) uses CAD-CAM (Computer-assisted Design – Computer-assisted Manufacture) technology to craft dental crowns, inlays, and onlays at our dental office as the patient waits. Dr. Tang will capture a 3D image of your tooth, and then formulate a digital design using CEREC®’s specialized software. Once the design is perfected, Dr. Tang submits it to the CEREC® milling machine, where a custom shade of ceramic will be chosen for the restoration.
Thanks to CEREC® technology, dental crowns, inlays, or onlays can be created in our Brookfield office while Dr. Tang prepares the tooth or teeth. Once crafted, the resulting crown, inlay, or onlay will be permanently bonded to your prepared tooth, resulting in a strong and attractive restoration. This will all occur during the same office visit, eliminating the need for potentially painful, temporary dental crowns, as well as the need for a second appointment.
Benefits of CEREC®
- CEREC® dental crowns, inlays, and onlays can be fitted, crafted, and placed in-office during a single visit.
- CEREC® eliminates the need for a temporary dental crown, reducing potential discomfort for the patient, while eliminating the need for another appointment.
- CEREC® saves money for the dentist and, in turn, the patient by eliminating costly lab fees and the need for another appointment.
Thanks to CEREC® technology, Dr. Tang can design and mill an esthetic porcelain crown, inlay, or onlay in the one visit that used to be spent simply preparing your tooth and making an impression, with the same high standards that are applied to restorations that come from a professional dental lab.
