Same Day Tooth Restorations
CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take exact digital images of areas requiring restoration and produce the suitable 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 have to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the laboratory to make your crown.
CEREC can be used in a wide scope of indications: onlays, partial crowns, posterior crowns, anterior crowns, veneers and inlays.

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 may not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may signal an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- consistent 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 danger of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to visit your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the earlier you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might end up being red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can generally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day 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 might become more extreme over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually worsens slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of periodontal disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may take place in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies show that extreme periodontal disease might be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care at home is important to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
