Same Day Tooth Restorations
CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take precise digital images of locations needing restoration and produce the suitable 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 create 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.
CEREC can be used for a broad scope of indications: partial crowns, posterior crowns, anterior crowns, veneers, inlays, and onlays.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is generally painless, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are few warning signs that can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent foul 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 numerous factors that increase the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the sooner you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can normally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more severe in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of periodontal disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may take place in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies suggest that serious gum disease might be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and gum examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care at home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
