At Tanty Family Dental, we believe in old-fashioned quality service free from discomfort.
That’s why everything at our dental office is designed to give our patients the best, most comfortable experience possible. Our goal is to give every patient quick and painless procedures, free from pain and anxiety. We utilize the latest in dental technology to avoid unnecessary return appointments and anesthetics whenever we can. We accept most dental insurance plans and have payment options for patients with no insurance.
Crown making machine for same-day crowns
Temporary crowns can be less comfortable and stable than permanent crowns, and in some cases can even fall off. With our in-house crown making machine, you won’t have to come back for a second visit or receive a temporary dental crown. This also means you’ll only have to go through the numbing process once.
We utilize Solea lasers for anesthetic-free tooth fillings. The laser vaporizes tooth decay and in many situations does not require the patient to receive a numbing shot. The process is ideal for patients who are afraid of needles and drills. Most patients feel nothing at all or a very mild sensation.
3D X-rays allow us to get a complete, comprehensive look at your teeth and jaw. We use a 3D profile to place dental implants more precisely, avoiding nerves and blood vessels. The best part? You can have your periodontal work done completely at our Waukesha office. Dr. Tanty is a dental surgeon and is able to perform the entire procedure himself.
Intraoral cameras scan a patient's mouth to create a unique 3D model that can be used in procedures like fitting crowns and dentures. Having a more complete and accurate picture of a patient's mouth ensures a better, more comfortable fit.
Modern Dentistry FAQs
What is a CEREC machine?
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This machine uses CAD/CAM technology to produce dental restorations in just one day. You'll never have to wait a week for your restoration to be made in a lab or take multiple trips to the dentist ever again.
How do CEREC crowns work?
CEREC same day dental crowns are the latest in dental technology. Your dentist will create a 3D digital impression of your mouth using a small camera. The CEREC machine will then make the 3D ceramic crown. To match the rest of your teeth, the dentist will paint, polish and glaze the crown and then bond it to your teeth. The entire procedure is quick and easy, only taking about 2 hours.
Does Solea laser hurt?
A big advantage of using Solea lasers for cavities is the procedure is relatively painless. With this new technology, you won't even need a local anesthetic injection to remove the decay from your tooth. The Solea laser targets a specific spot to reduce tissue damage so you may only feel a cold sensation every couple of seconds.
Can lasers remove old fillings?
The Solea laser can be used for a majority of dental procedures including routine fillings, removal of old fillings, crowns or more complex surgeries.
How long does a 3D dental scan take?
The machine will rotate around your head, taking 3D images of the jaw, skull, soft tissues and teeth so the process takes less than 20 seconds to complete.
What does a 3D scan of teeth show?
3D imaging allows your dentist to see the height, width, and depth of each of your teeth. The scan also visualizes your teeth, roots, gums, bones, nerves and airways to show how they relate to each other. 3D imaging is often used for dental implant placement, orthodontic treatment, root canal therapy, sleep apnea treatment, TMJ treatment, and tooth extractions.
Why would a dentist use an intraoral camera?
Dentists typically use intraoral cameras to educate patients about their oral health. Intraoral cameras are also great for detecting oral health problems (tooth decay, gum disease and other conditions), improving the accuracy of dental treatments, documenting a patient's teeth for future reference, and helping with insurance claims.
