Same Day Crown Restorations
CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take precise digital imagery of areas needing restoration and produce the appropriate 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 system milling unit right in the office. You no longer need to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the laboratory to fabricate your crown.

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 bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are few warning signs that can signal an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many aspects that increase the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the quicker you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can generally 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 lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually worsens slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may happen 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 research studies indicate that serious periodontal disease might be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Excellent dental care in your home is important to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
