Advanced Dental Technology for Enhanced Care and Precision

Our state-of-the-art technologies ensure accuracy, efficiency, and comfort. Our dental equipment is safe, effective, and well-maintained. Some of our dental technologies include those listed below:

Digital X-Rays

Our advanced digital x-rays magnify and enhance your teeth for better diagnosis and treatment. This technology allows us to take images of your teeth and display them on a computer screen quickly and easily.

With digital x-rays, we can view your teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy. These images provide the information we need to plan your dental treatment.

Digital x-rays require much less radiation than traditional film x-rays. Digital x-rays are a safe and effective dental technology.

3D Cone Beam Imaging

Cone Beam imaging is an advanced form of digital radiograph. With the cone beam imager, one simple scan will produce a 3D image of your entire maxillofacial structure. This image can then be used in diagnostics, patient education, treatment planning, and treatment follow-up.

By utilizing advanced technologies like the cone beam, we can provide an effective, efficient, and comfortable patient experience for you on every visit.

iTero Intraoral Scanner

What is the secret to making a great impression? At Broadway Dental of Millbrae, we use our intraoral digital scanner to ensure that the impressions we take are accurate, efficient, and comfortable every time.

Impressions are necessary for the fabrication of dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, and dental implants. Our hand-held intra-oral scanner takes 3-dimensional digital video impressions with proven accuracy. Even the most challenging cases can be accurately scanned with our intra-oral scanner.

Another benefit to you is reduced time. When we send precise digital scans to our lab, your restorations require less preparation work and can be fabricated more quickly. This means you can have your restoration placed and be enjoying the results sooner than with traditional impression methods.

In the past, you may have experienced dental trays that filled with a soft substance that hardened into an impression of your mouth and teeth. With the intraoral scanner’s small hand-held wand, we can take accurate digital impressions quickly and easily, without tripping your gag reflex.

Even more, as we complete your scan, you will be able to view the impression on the monitor along with us. This allows you to see more precisely why we have recommended restoration for your oral health needs.

We look forward to seeing you again at your next appointment with us. We love to make a great impression.

Glidewell Fastmill.io™ Same-Day Dental Restorations

Broadway Dental of Millbrae has integrated the use of Glidewell Fastmill.io™ technology to offer same-day dental restorations to our patients. We are committed to providing the most efficient and effective innovations available, and the Glidewell Fastmill.io™ is no exception. The patented Glidewell Fastmill.io™ CAD/CAM technology designs and crafts high quality, metal-free dental restorations in a single patient visit.

Glidewell Fastmill.io™ makes dental restoration effective and efficient. First, any decay is removed from the tooth. Next, we take digital images of the tooth using Glidewell Fastmill.io™’s 3D modeling software. This 3D model is viewed on a high definition screen as our expert dentist designs the restoration for a precise fit and aesthetically pleasing look. Once the final design is complete, the Glidewell Fastmill.io™ machine crafts the custom restoration from a solid block of ceramic. This creates strong and highly durable restorations. In about 15 minutes, the restoration will be ready for placement. Once bonded in place, it is adjusted and polished for a natural, beautiful look.

Using Glidewell Fastmill.io™, patients can leave an appointment with a brand-new restoration. Glidewell Fastmill.io™ ends the need for multiple appointments, messy impressions, and weeks of waiting for a lab to make the restoration. Temporary restorations are no longer needed. Glidewell Fastmill.io™ is ready the same day.

You may be a candidate for Glidewell Fastmill.io™ technology if you:

  • Have been told you need a new crown, inlay, onlay or bridge
  • Have a cracked tooth
  • Have old failing restorations
  • Have had damage or trauma to your tooth
  • Are interested in replacing old metal restorations with biocompatible restorations

In general, a Glidewell Fastmill.io™ crown appointment can take less than two hours and requires no additional appointments. The 3D imaging technology allows Dr. Yang to design a precise virtual restoration without taking impressions. This allows us to ensure restorations look great, fit perfectly, and can last for years.

Dr. Yang has the experience and qualifications to care for same day dental restorations. For more information about Glidewell Fastmill.io™ technology or to schedule an appointment, contact Broadway Dental of Millbrae.
