A crown in about an hour — really?

Really! It’s the CEREC CAD/CAM technology that gives me the ability to do this for you. Revolutionary to restorative dentistry, I can prep your tooth for a crown, onlay, or inlay, design it on the computer, mill it, and seat it for you. It’s very cool! I love providing this service to my patients. Some folks just relax in the dental chair while their restoration is milled. Some, though, like to watch the machine work. You can see it carve your restoration through a window on the front of the CEREC. It’s pretty amazing.

How do I stay out of your dental chair?

Come visit my hygienist at least twice a year! Truly, regular checkups partnered with good daily hygiene will help prevent tooth problems that may land you in _my _chair. You need to brush at least twice a day and floss everyday, preferably before bed to make sure your teeth are as clean as can be during the night. Cutting back on sugar really helps, too. Sugar promotes tooth decay. Also, at your hygiene appointment, we can often find small problems before they become big ones. Small problems usually don’t hurt, but big ones are likely to be very painful.
