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

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Due to the fact that gum disease is usually painless, you might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are couple warning signs that can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent bad breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any difference in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many factors that enhance the risk of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to visit your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the earlier you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can typically be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more severe over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It generally worsens slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of gum disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may take place in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research in between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies indicate that serious gum disease may be connected with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and gum examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Great dental care in your home is important to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
