Same Day Crown Restorations
CEREC means CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take accurate digital images of areas requiring restoration and produce the suitable 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 need to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the laboratory to produce your crown.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is typically painless, you may not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Here are some warning signs that can indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent bad breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that increase the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the quicker you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may become red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can typically 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 result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more extreme with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It normally gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of gum disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include 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 suggest that severe gum disease might be connected with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dentists diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care at home is essential to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
