Same Day Crown Restorations
CEREC means CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take exact digital imagery of locations requiring restoration and produce the proper 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 develop 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 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.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since 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 bacteria that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Here are few warning signs that may indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have actually 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 aspects that increase the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to 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, swollen and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can usually be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more serious over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually worsens slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might happen 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 studies show that serious gum disease may be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment methods that most dental practitioners diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Great dental care in your home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
