Same Day Crown Restorations
CEREC means CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take accurate digital imagery of locations 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 just 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 make your crown.
CEREC can be used for a broad range of indications: veneers, inlays, onlays, partial crowns, posterior crowns and anterior crowns.

There are various types of dentures, but they share their common function. They replace teeth that have become loose or been lost due to bone loss. When bone loss around the roots of teeth is big enough to let them fall out or loosen them, it's time for dentures. Relax. Nobody enjoys losing their natural teeth, but you can still eat and talk regularly.
The entire mouth is analyzed and a determination is made as to which teeth will have to be removed, and which will stay. The loose teeth are then removed. Dentures are fitted to go around or over whatever teeth stay in the mouth, depending upon the type. There is an adjustment period after dentures are positioned in the mouth, and it can take some getting used to. Once accustomed to the dentures, all the regular performance and look return and one just continues as usual. Commonly implants can be used to further stabilize the dentures.
It is necessary to keep in mind that life with an upper denture, a lower denture, and especially both, is a major lifestyle change when as compared to natural teeth. Dentures affect the kind of food you are able to eat, your self-confidence in social situations, as well as your self-esteem.
A Couple Reasons For Considering A Full Denture:
- All Teeth missing in the exact same arch
- Restore chewing capability
- Restore a natural looking smile
- Economical alternative to other treatments
An upper complete denture will almost always feel much better than a lower full denture. In order to significantly improve the fit of a lower full denture, we regularly suggest using dental implants as a retentive mechanism. 2 dental implants placed in the lower jaw can help anchor the denture and significantly enhance comfort. Often, the implants can even be placed in the jaw after a denture has actually been in use for numerous years.
