We also know that our teeth form a large part of our facial structure and our smile is an integral part of our personality and personal presentation. For this reason we have included some information about your teeth below.

Throughout your life, you will have two sets of teeth: primary (baby) teeth and secondary (permanent) teeth. At age 6-8 months, the primary teeth appear; all 20 are in place by age 3.

Permanent teeth will begin to grow around age 6, and all teeth except for wisdom teeth, are present between ages 12 and 14. The next teeth to grow in are the 12-year molars and finally the wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth typically begin breaking through from age 17 and on. The total number of permanent teeth is 32, though few people have room for all 32 teeth. This is why wisdom teeth are usually removed.

Your front teeth are called incisors. The sharp “fang-like” teeth are canines. The next side teeth are referred to as pre-molars or bicuspids, and the back teeth are molars. Your permanent teeth are the ones you keep for life, so it is vital that they are brushed and flossed regularly and that periodic check-ups by a dentist are followed.



What Is CEREC®?
CEREC® by SironaTM stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. CEREC has helped dentists place over 6 million dental restorations worldwide. CEREC 3D technology enables us to prepare beautiful dental restorations in a single visit. Perfectly fitted restorations are designed in three dimensions, and the ceramic material is milled right in the office. With CEREC, we can restore decayed teeth, design and place crowns, replace amalgam fillings, place inlays, onlays and dental veneers in just one appointment.

Solid blocks of ceramic material are converted into beautifully fitted inlays, onlays, partial crowns, full anterior and posterior crowns and veneers. The final result is a beautiful, natural-colored tooth restoration that is much stronger than before. The restoration closely matches the composition of natural teeth. The ceramic material is chemically bonded to your tooth, so we can preserve as much healthy tooth structure as possible. CEREC provides dental restorations that actually strengthen your teeth.
