Same Day Teeth Restorations
CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take precise digital imagery of locations needing restoration and produce the proper 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 design 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 laboratory to fabricate your crown.
CEREC can be used in a broad range of indications: onlays, partial crowns, posterior crowns, anterior crowns, veneers and inlays.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is normally pain-free, you might 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.
Some warning signs that can signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have actually retreated 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 aspects that increase the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit 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 might end up being red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible 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 cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more severe over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may 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 studies indicate that serious gum disease might be connected with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Excellent dental care in your home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
