Same Day Crowns Restorations
CEREC means CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take precise digital imagery of locations needing 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 develop and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer milling unit right in the office. You no longer have to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the lab to make your crown.
CEREC can be used in a full scope of indications: anterior crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays, partial crowns and posterior crowns.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is generally pain-free, you might not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are couple warning signs that can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have 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 numerous factors that increase the risk of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit your dentist if you suspect 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 may end up being red, swollen and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can usually be eliminated 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 may end up being more serious in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It typically worsens slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might 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 indicate that severe gum disease might be connected with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care at home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
