With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed in simply one visit. We will develop 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 fabricate your crown.
CEREC can be used in a broad range of indications: partial crowns, posterior crowns, anterior crowns, veneers, inlays, and onlays.

A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of types of bridges. We will talk about the very best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge includes two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly resilient and will last years with correct home care; however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- Restore chewing and speaking ability.
- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill area of missing teeth.
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
- Upgrade from a detachable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge generally needs two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a extremely precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for multiple weeks up until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully examined, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a appropriate fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why You Should Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area developed by a missing tooth. It is formed to look like the missing tooth, and it takes its place in the mouth. The sides of a bridge uses the two surrounding teeth for assistance, hence the name. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. Bridge work is as much an art as it is an precise science. The materials used might be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The option of material depends upon requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is necessary that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space start to move inward, producing a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can eventually result in issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth deteriorate and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a serious issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
