What are the Benefits of CEREC Crowns?

The process of placing a dental crown can be lengthy. Many dentists have to schedule patients for multiple appointments during the process. The initial appointment requires that a patient come into the office so that the dentist can prepare the tooth. A small portion of the enamel is removed to create a nice tight fit for the dental crown. Impressions are then taken, and the molds are sent to an outside laboratory for creation. A period of several weeks can pass before the new restoration is ready for the patient. When it arrives back to the dental office, the patient … Continue reading

What is CEREC?

Dental crowns and bridges are common restorations used in dentistry. The process for many patients who are receiving a cosmetic restoration involves two appointments: one in which the patient will have impressions done, and another in which the patient will have the restoration bonded over their tooth. There are often several weeks between appointments, while the restoration is being fabricated from a laboratory that oftentimes resides outside of the city and state in which the dental work is being completed. This requires more time and money from both the dentist and the patient. Now, there’s a better, faster way to … Continue reading

Root Canal Treatment

Dr Munira Lokhandwala, Starbrite Dental, Providing root canals

A tooth has a root located underneath the gum with a sensitive nerve inside a canal which connects the nerves in the jaws to the tooth. This nerve provides vitality to the tooth and is the reason why the teeth have the sensitivity to hot and cold. When a patient develops a cavity and does not take care of it, the harmful bacteria eat away at the tooth structures and may make it all the way down to the canal where the nerve resides. The bacteria infect the nerve, resulting in the formation of an abscess. This puts pressure on … Continue reading
