Same Day Tooth Restorations
CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take exact digital images of areas requiring 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 design 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 laboratory to fabricate your crown.
CEREC can be used in a full scope of indications: onlays, partial crowns, posterior crowns, anterior crowns, veneers and inlays.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is normally painless, you may 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 a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have actually retreated from the teeth.
- consistent 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 risk of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to visit your dentist if you believe 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 may become red, inflamed and bleed easily. 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 severe over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It typically gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may happen in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research in between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies suggest that serious periodontal disease may be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and gum examinations are essential. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Excellent dental care in your home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
