Same Day Teeth Restorations
CEREC means CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take precise digital images 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 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 utilized for a broad range of indications: onlays, partial crowns, posterior crowns, anterior crowns, veneers and inlays.

A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple types of bridges. We will go over the very best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is typically made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of 2 crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last multiple years with correct home care; however, they might have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill space of missing teeth.
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
- Upgrade from a removable 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 highly precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental lab where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for a number of weeks until your next appointment.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully inspected, adjusted, and cemented to attain a proper fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why Should You Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space 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 specific 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 a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap start to move inward, creating a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can eventually lead to issues with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth deteriorate and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a severe problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
