Whether you want a whiter, brighter smile or require restorative services such as crowns and bridges, we are dedicated to providing you with an exceptional dental experience during your time with us.
Our general and restorative services include, but aren’t limited to:
Getting a regular teeth cleaning is your best defense against cavities and gum disease. During your cleaning we remove two harmful substances from the surface of your teeth, plaque and tartar.
Plaque is a soft and sticky bacteria that builds up over time. We are able to remove plaque from the hard-to-reach places your toothbrush and floss can’t reach.
Tartar is a mineral buildup. The deposits are brown or black and are usually easy to spot when they are above the gum line. The only way to remove tartar is to visit your dentist.
Fillings are used to restore damaged teeth back to their normal prevention. They also help to prevent further decay from occurring by closing off spaces where bacteria can enter. We have white fillings available that produce a natural appearance on your tooth.
A crown is a fixed prosthetic device used to “cap” a damaged tooth. A dentist is likely to recommend a crown to replace a large filling, protect a weak tooth, cover a dental implant or cover a discoloured or misshape tooth, among other reasons.
A bridge is cemented in place to span the space between missing teeth. It’s important to fill in the gaps left by missing teeth because eventually one or more of the remaining teeth will want to rotate or shift itself into the empty space. This can lead to a bad bite or even gum disease.
Removable dentures are a type of partial denture. They are a popular choice for many patients because they are well-constructed (metal-based) and lighter and less obtrusive than their plastic counterparts.
Thinking about whitening your teeth? You’re not alone. We all have reasons why we’d like our teeth a little whiter. We have different options available to suit your budget.
X-rays are quick, easy and less invasive thanks to our digital technology. Plus, we are able to easily store your images in our archives.
Strong and stable, dental implants are highly effective at replacing missing, damaged or decayed teeth. They will allow you to talk, chew, smile and laugh just like you used to.
