The bacteria that cause tooth decay feed off of sugar and excrete acid, which is what causes tooth decay. The more sugar our teeth have ...

Dental technology is always evolving and improving, and one of the most significant benefits modern dentistry offers is streamlining procedures. There is no better example of this than CEREC crowns in Charleston, SC.

If you've had a dental crown placed in the past, you probably remember the two long appointments that were required to complete the process. Not to mention the temporary you had to wear for two to three weeks while you patiently waited for your final restoration.
