Same Day Tooth Restorations
CEREC means CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take exact digital images 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 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 lab to make your crown.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Due to the fact that gum disease is normally pain-free, you may 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 a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have retreated 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of aspects that enhance the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the faster you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might end up being red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can usually be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily 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 extreme with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of periodontal disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might take place 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 research studies show that severe periodontal disease may be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Excellent dental care at home is vital to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
