CEREC technology is cutting-edge and provides you with some of the longest lasting dental restorations on the market today.
CEREC is a revolutionary CAD/CAM technology that allows for completion of crowns, onlays, inlays, and even veneers in one simple visit! Typically, laboratory-processed crowns are delivered over two separate visits, two weeks apart, and involve impressions and temporaries. The CEREC software allows us to customize the shape of the restoration to fit exactly to your specific dental needs, and eliminates the undesirable impressions and temporaries that traditional techniques require.
CEREC restorations are milled from a solid block of porcelain, which contains properties nearly identical to your tooth’s enamel, creating a strong, beautiful restoration that is immediately bonded, acting to reinforce your teeth. With a CEREC bonded restoration, teeth are restored to unprecedented strengths.
Allow our team of dental professionals to restore your teeth back to their natural form, function and cosmetic beauty. Call us today to learn more about CEREC restorations, and if they are the right option for you and your dental needs.

When a tooth is damaged (for example, from fracture, old large fillings, trauma, or decay) the placement of a crown is often recommended. The purpose of a crown is to strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure. This will also improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile. Crowns are generally used to strengthen a weakened tooth, and are most often fabricated using CEREC technology.
Traditionally, fitting a crown requires at least two office visits to the dentist and involves both impressions and temporary crowns. Because our office is a provider of the CEREC technology, we can have your crown in place in just one visit!
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of a tooth to improve its cosmetic appearance.
Veneers are meant to correct a variety of aesthetic concerns including chipped, crowded, spaced or stained teeth. Veneers can be made with CEREC technology, or can be fabricated in a laboratory, depending on the individual situation.
We favor bonded, tooth-colored fillings. They look and feel natural, and they have the added benefit of bonding to the tooth to strengthen and reinforce it.
Over time, old fillings will begin to breakdown. Eventually they will need to be replaced as the breakdown progresses. We can evaluate and identify any teeth that may require restoration, and you can trust that you will be fully informed of what procedures and treatments are recommended and why. That's why Dr. Marc Rossow is the Rochester dentist patients truly trust.

Root canal problems, when unattended to, can cause serious problems and discomfort. It is important to seek treatment from a trained dental professional. Let us treat your root canal in our Culver Ridge office, and help you see why Dr. Marc Rossow is one of most liked and respected dentists in the Rochester area.
Many years ago, diseased or injured teeth were simply pulled and removed. In today’s world, even if the pulp (soft tissue inside of the tooth that contains blood vessels and nerves) inside of your teeth is injured or becomes infected, it is possible the tooth can be saved through proper root canal treatment.
When a diseased pulp is unable to repair itself, it dies. Most common causes of this occurrence are cracked teeth, deep cavities, issues with fillings, or serious trauma to your tooth. When the pulp dies, bacteria enter. If the pulp does not get removed, the tissue around the tooth’s root can become inflamed and painful, and often times can result in required removal of the tooth, causing other problems including loss of function, alteration of chewing patterns, and shifting of neighboring teeth.
Root canal treatment can prevent these problems and save your natural tooth, and is usually completed in one visit to our Irondequoit dentist office. To learn more about how our root canal expertise can save your damaged tooth, contact us today. You can call 585-266-2300, or submit a question on our Contact Us page, where you will receive a prompt response directly from Dr. Rossow.

Dental implants are artificial roots that are surgically integrated into the jawbone. Implants often provide foundation and support for various types of dental prosthesis, including bridges, crowns, or hybrid-style dentures. Implants provide a permanent fix for a missing tooth that will not deteriorate or decay.
If you think you are an eligible candidate for a dental implant, contact us today. A thorough, professional dental examination is required to determine which patients would be successful candidates for dental implants.
By using either local anesthetic or conscious sedation, the implant is placed into the jawbone where it remains covered by gum tissue for three to six months. In phase 2, the implant is exposed, and a healing cap is placed over the implant, allowing the gum tissue to grow and heal around the cap. Finally, the crown is placed on the implant root to complete the process.
Dental implants have one of the highest success rates in dentistry, with successful outcomes routinely exceeding 97%!
Contact us today to see if dental implants are the right choice for you and your dental needs. You can give us a call at 585-266-2300, or submit a question on our Contact Us page, where you will receive a prompt response directly from our staff.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that up to 75% of all adult individuals have some form of periodontal disease. Unfortunately, analogous to high blood pressure, there are usually no painful symptoms that accompany periodontal disease and unless you are screened for it, it will go unnoticed. If unidentified and untreated, periodontal disease can cause serious damage. Left unchecked, this disease will cause loss of support of all of your teeth.
As part of every patient’s routine care, we screen for the disease and educate you on treatment alternatives. If you think you have gum disease, or notice bleeding in your gums, don’t hesitate to call us for a thorough periodontal evaluation. Our team takes proper precautions to be proactive in preventing periodontal disease. Call us today at 585-266-2300, or submit a question on our Contact Us page, where you will receive a prompt response directly from Dr. Rossow.
