Same Day Tooth Restorations
CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take accurate digital images of locations 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 simply one visit. We will design and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer milling unit right in the office. You no longer have to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the lab to produce your crown.
CEREC can be used for a broad range of indications: anterior crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays, partial crowns and posterior crowns.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is normally painless, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as 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 too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have actually retreated from the teeth.
- persistent bad breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous factors that enhance the risk of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you presume 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 end up being red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can usually be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday 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 start moving around in your mouth. It generally gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may occur in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies show that severe periodontal disease might be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Good dental care at home is important to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
