Same Day Crown Restorations
CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take precise digital images of areas 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 just one visit. We will create and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer milling unit right in the office. You no longer need to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the laboratory to produce your crown.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is usually pain-free, 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 continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have 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 factors that increase the risk of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you think 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 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 might become more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It typically becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of periodontal 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 gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies suggest that extreme gum disease may be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods 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 necessary to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
