A great article about changes in dentistry, from Dr. Baruffi

December 28th, 2009

Dr. Baruffi and his team know the world around us is always changing and evolving, whether it’s the latest gadget you ordered online or the high-tech braces on your teeth! Recently, the team read an article in the New York Times about dental implants, and how they are becoming increasingly favored over bridges to replace lost teeth. One thing to remember about dental implants is that they need to be cared for just like your regular teeth; daily brushing and flossing are a must!

Call us if you have any questions!

Dr. Baruffi, Seattle's CEREC Provider

December 14th, 2009

CEREC is a technology for restoring damaged teeth, and this restoration can be completed in a single visit to Southcenter Dental. It makes your teeth stronger and more beautiful — all while keeping your teeth looking natural. The restoration is metal-free and the high-grade ceramic material is compatible with the natural tissue found in your mouth. This is the finest restorative material available today, all in one appointment.

The CEREC Process

First, Dr. Baruffi will meet with you to discuss the details of the procedure. During the procedure, Dr. Baruffi will apply a thin layer of reflective powder onto your tooth and will use a special camera to take a photo of your tooth. Using Computer Aided Design, the photo serves as an optimal impression. The restoration will then be designed by the computer on this impression. Then CEREC will use a diamond bur and disk to create your restoration piece out of a high tech ceramic. Finally, the ceramic restoration is bonded to your tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry.

Dr. Baruffi is your local CEREC dentist for single-visit tooth restorations. Call us today at Southcenter Dental to make an appointment.

Happy Monday!
