Same Day Tooth 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 proper restoration on the spot.
With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration finished in just one visit. We will develop and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer milling unit right in the office.

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 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.
Here are few warning signs that can indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many factors that increase the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you suspect 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 might end up being red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can generally be eliminated 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 might become more severe with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It typically worsens slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of periodontal disease that occurs 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 between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies show that serious gum disease may be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Excellent dental care in your home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
