Many people are afflicted with teeth grinding — also known as bruxism. While some individuals may do this throughout the day, it is a larger problem at night during sleep. Shelby Township dentist Dr. Frank Ruffino DDSknows that teeth grinding can damage enamel, wear down teeth, cause jaw pain or irritate your gums. The noise from teeth grinding can also disturb your spouse’s sleep.

Short for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic, CEREC takes faster pictures of your teeth at higher resolutions, identifying how a crown might fit and immediately creating an impression.
