CEREC®: CAD/CAM Technology
The Single Visit Crown. We have been using CEREC® for 9 years and have made thousands of restorations. Thanks to the exceptional precision of CEREC® technology we can create beautiful computer generated porcelain restorations that are durable and blend in with the surrounding teeth. All of this can be done in as little as a single visit. This means no need for temporaries or second visits for the same tooth.
We have been a proud and successful contributor in dental cosmetics for 30 years. A matter of fact, Dr. Tim Kearns has had veneers on his front teeth done by his father, Dr Bill Kearns almost 30 years ago. A testament to the fact that they work and the quality of work done. Today there are even stronger and more aesthetic materials available. Often different techniques can be combined together to achieve the desired result. In rejuvenating your smile we may combine veneers, crown and bridge, dental implants, bonding, bleaching and tooth movement (orthodontics). The end result means an overall improvement in the health of your joints, better function, and a beautiful smile.

Another word for endodontic is a root canal.To understand endodontic treatment, it helps to know something about the anatomy of the tooth. Inside the tooth, under the white enamel and a hard layer called the dentin, is a soft tissue called the pulp. The pulp contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue.
Dental implants can be used to replace missing teeth, securing loose fitting dentures and improving aesthetics.
Implants enable us to create healthy attractive smiles in an innovative way. Used to replace one or more missing teeth, implants are another alternative to conventional bridges and dentures.

TMJ Function Therapy
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint in front of your ear which allows you to open and close your mouth and move your jaw for talking, eating and laughing. It is where the Temporal bone comes together with the Mandible. There should be space between the two bones and a disc interposed. The disc acts as a shock absorber between the two bones and allows smooth opening and closing.
