What is the Treatment?
The implants are made of a space-age alloy of titanium. These posts are placed into the jaw bone where teeth are missing and are allowed to heal undisturbed while the bone heals around them, locking them in like an anchor. They act as tooth root substitutes and serve as a foundation for replacement teeth.
Implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or they can cover a span of multiple missing teeth.
How Long is the Treatment?
Bridges & Crowns
What is the Crown Treatment?
How do the Crowns work?
What is a Bridge Treatment?
Bridges are one of the replacement options for missing teeth. These are fixed structures that use the support of the teeth on either side of the missing teeth.
How does a Bridge work?
The disadvantage is that we have to treat two teeth on either side of the missing tooth. These may be perfectly fine teeth otherwise. In some situations, however, they may also benefit from crowns if they already are heavily filled.

CEREC Cad-cam Dentistry
What does CEREC stand for?
- Chairside: The technology is in the dental operatory and used while you are in the chair
- Economical: The procedure is economical for both dentist and patient
- Restorations: The procedure restores your tooth to its natural beauty, function, and strength
- Esthetic: The restorations are metal-free and tooth-colored
- Ceramic: High-strength ceramics are used that are close in composition to your natural tooth structure
Single Appointment Dental Care
With CEREC, the procedure is completed in a single appointment, start to finish. The camera first scans the prepared tooth in just a few seconds, thus no impression needed. The restoration is milled out of a ceramic block in a few minutes and is ready to be placed immediately, so no temporaries required either!
We use the Finest Materials
These materials closely match the composition of natural tooth structure. The mechanical properties of the ceramic materials are quite similar to that of the natural tooth enamel. So, when you consume anything hot or cold, the restoration and tooth expand and contract at almost equal rates. Therefore your tooth does not end up with cracks and breaking as can frequently happen with amalgam fillings. Also, the opposing tooth is not subject to additional wear & tear.
