Same day crown! Traditionally, if crowns, onlays, inlays or dental veneers were required to restore damaged teeth, multiple procedures and a great deal of waiting time in-between would be inevitable. CEREC® creates these ceramic restorations within minutes in the dental office. This means that many treatments can be completed in just a single visit.

A crown is a permanent covering that fits over an original tooth that has either decayed, been damaged, or cracked. Crowns can be made of a variety of different materials such as full porcelain crowns or the more traditional porcelain to gold fused crowns. We use the highest quality labs to ensure that your crown fits well and lasts for years.
A bridge is a single appliance that is generally attached to two teeth on each side of the space where a tooth is missing. An artificial tooth attached in the middle of the bridge fills in the gap where the missing tooth was. The teeth on either side of the gap are prepared for crowns (see crowns) and a highly accurate impression or mold is made of the prepared area. This mold is used to create a gold or porcelain (tooth colored) bridge in a special laboratory. The bridge is then cemented onto the prepared surface of the teeth, effectively creating the appearance of a "new" tooth.
Each new patient exam includes a full mouth exam, x-rays, periodontal charting, and an oral cancer screening.
