CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take exact digital imagery of areas requiring restoration and produce the appropriate restoration on the spot.
With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration finished in just one visit. We will design and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer milling unit right in the office. You no longer need to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the lab to produce your crown.
CEREC can be used in a broad range of indications: posterior crowns, anterior crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays and partial crowns.

Today We Will Be Talking About:
There are different types of dentures, but they share their common function. They replace teeth that have become loose or been lost due to bone loss. When bone loss around the roots of teeth is great enough to let them fall out or loosen them, it's time for dentures. Relax. Nobody enjoys losing their natural teeth, but you can still eat and talk regularly.
The entire mouth is analyzed and a decision is made about which teeth will need to be removed, and which will stay. The loose teeth are then extracted. Dentures are fitted to go around or over whatever teeth remain in the mouth, depending on the type. There is an adjustment period after dentures are put in the mouth, and it can take some getting used to. But once accustomed to the dentures, all the regular performance and look return and one simply continues as usual. Often implants can be used to further stabilize the dentures.
It is essential to note that life with an upper denture, a lower denture, and especially both, is a significant lifestyle change when compared with natural teeth. Dentures impact the type of food you have the ability to eat, your self-confidence in social scenarios, as well as your self-esteem.
A Couple Reasons For Considering A Full Denture:
All Teeth missing in the exact same arch
Restore chewing ability
Restore a natural looking smile
Economical alternative to other treatments
An upper full denture will usually feel much better than a lower full denture. In order to dramatically enhance the fit of a lower full denture, we often recommend utilizing dental implants as a retentive mechanism. Two dental implants put in the lower jaw can help anchor the denture and substantially improve comfort. Sometimes, the implants can even be positioned in the jaw after a denture has actually been in use for multiple years.
