Same Day Crowns Restorations
CEREC means CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take exact digital imagery of locations 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 lab to produce your crown.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because 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 bacteria that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can signal an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have actually retreated from the teeth.
- persistent 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 aspects that enhance the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the earlier you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can usually be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more serious over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally worsens slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may occur 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 studies show that extreme gum disease might be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and gum examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Good dental care at home is essential to help keep gum disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
