Same Day Tooth Restorations
CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take exact digital imagery of areas needing 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 create 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 lab to make your crown.
CEREC can be used in a broad scope of indications: partial crowns, posterior crowns, anterior crowns, veneers, inlays, and onlays.

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 normally pain-free, you might 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 can signal an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent foul 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 increase the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the sooner you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can generally be removed 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 result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more extreme in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of periodontal 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 gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies indicate that extreme gum disease might be associated with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and gum examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Excellent dental care at home is important to help keep gum disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
