CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take accurate digital imagery of areas requiring 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 need to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the laboratory to produce your crown.
CEREC can be used in a broad scope of indications: inlays, onlays, partial crowns, posterior crowns, anterior crowns and veneers.

A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional method to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple kinds of bridges. We will talk about the best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is generally made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge consists of 2 crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last many years with proper home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- 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 usually needs 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by eliminating a portion of enamel to enable a crown. Next, a highly precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be made. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and worn for multiple weeks until your next appointment.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly inspected, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area developed by a missing tooth. It is formed to appear like the missing tooth, and it takes its place in the mouth. The sides of a bridge uses the two surrounding teeth for support, 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 choice of material depends upon requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is important that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to shift inward, creating a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can eventually result in issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a severe problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
