TREATMENTS AND SERVICES
We provide many of the latest cosmetic dental treatments to help you achieve your perfect smile. The treatments include:
Implants are replacement teeth that look and feel like your own. They can be used to provide support for a bridge or denture. They can also to be used to replace a missing tooth. They do not affect your surrounding teeth. After a thorough exam and a review of your health history and lifestyle, we will be able to determine if implants are right for you.
Invisalign® allows us to straighten your teeth without using the bracket and wires used in traditional braces. This system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually reposition teeth. We have chosen to offer the Invisalign® system because the aligners are more visually appealing than braces. They’re also removable which makes it easier to clean your teeth after eating. Smooth and comfortable, the aligners don’t irritate your gums, cheek, or tongue. The Invisalign® system also eliminates any allergic reactions that you may experience with metal.
CREATING AND USING INVISALIGN®:
Digital teeth impressions of your teeth, bite registrations, photographs and x-rays are taken and sent to the laboratory accompanied by a treatment plan. The precisely customized, clear mold aligners are created at the lab. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and you’ll remove them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
About every two weeks, you will replace the aligner with the next one in the series. Your teeth will move, a little at a time, until they are straightened to the desired position. About every six weeks, you’ll have to visit us so that we can ensure that your treatment is progressing appropriately.
The time it takes to complete the treatment will vary according to your specific circumstances. After a thorough exam and a review of your health history and lifestyle, we will be able to determine if Invisalign® is right for you.
VENEERS AND LUMINEERS
If you require perfectly-aligned whiter teeth, you can choose to get porcelain veneers. Veneers require the dentist to remove the outer layer (enamel) of the teeth in order to make space for the new layer. The teeth will remain unprotected until the veneers are permanently fixed. On the other hand, lumineers are as thin as contact lenses and can be applied directly onto the tooth. Lumineers are a painless way to immediately transform your smile. Ultra-thin lumineers can be custom designed for you in only two visits.
MOUTHGUARDS OR SPORTS GUARDS
While participating in contact sports, you can easily damage your teeth and gums. Protecting your teeth from damage beforehand can help you avoid painful surgeries and restorative procedures. An easy solution to protect yourself from injuries is to use a mouthguard. We can fabricate custom-made mouthguards for our athlete patients.
ROOT CANALS AND CROWNS
Deep cavities, as well as fractured or broken teeth, can expose the pulp of the teeth to bacteria in our saliva. When the pulp is infected, it can be extremely painful and make the tooth unstable. You will require a root canal treatment to remove the infected portion and save your teeth.
A crown is used to entirely cover or “cap” a damaged tooth. When the tooth becomes weaker after removing the pulp, a crown can help strengthen the tooth. Crowns help restore the function of your teeth. Talk to our dentists to find out if you’re a candidate for crowns.
When one or more of your teeth are missing, the teeth can rotate or shift leading to a bad bite. The missing teeth can also cause TMJ disorder and gum disease among other problems. Bridges are used to fill this gap – they span the space where teeth are missing. They are cemented to natural teeth or to the implants surrounding the empty space. Bridges can help restore the function of your teeth and mouth.
AT-HOME TEETH WHITENING
Get the bright, white smile you have always wanted. The at-home teeth whitening method offers a way to whiten your teeth while at home. A mould of your teeth will be made with which custom, clear plastic trays will be fabricated. The trays are worn with a special whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight. This process will repeat daily from a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on the level of staining and your desired level of whiteness. Our teeth whitening technique is safe, easy, quick and highly effective.
SAME-DAY DENTURE REPAIRS
We understand that a broken denture can cause a lot of pain and discomfort. It can also be an inconvenience as it affects the function of your mouth. When you have a damaged denture, please contact us immediately. With our same-day denture repair service, we can restore your denture to a functional state in no time.
DIGITAL IMPRESSION SCANNER
We offer 3D digital teeth scans. You no longer have to worry about uncomfortably waiting for your teeth impressions to harden in your mouth. These scans are fast, accurate and simple to create. The entire process is comfortable, quick and extremely thorough.
Intraoral cameras take an x-ray of the outside of your gum and teeth. When the camera is used in tandem with a computer screen or TV monitor, you can see what your dentist sees inside your mouth. This helps in educating you about your oral health with visual proof. These cameras are highly useful during dental procedures.
We offer laser dentistry for certain types of dental surgeries and to treat tooth decay. Since we don’t use drills or non-laser tools, laser dentistry is a much more comfortable treatment option when it is feasible for you.
NITROUS OXIDE - LAUGHING GAS
We provide nitrous oxide sedation (laughing gas) at our clinic. It is a safe and effective sedative agent to help you feel comfortable while undergoing dental treatment. You can hear and respond to your dentist while you’re sedated. The effect of the sedative wears off soon after the mask is removed, allowing you to continue with your day-to-day activities without any lingering side effect.
Dental radiographs (x-rays) are essential, preventative diagnostic tools that provide valuable information which isn’t visible during a clinical examination. Our dentists and hygienists use this information to accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and design a treatment plan. X-rays can help the dentist check for decays, tumours, cysts and bone loss. X-rays also help to determine tooth and root positions.
FULLY COMPUTERIZED PAPER LIGHT (GREEN) OFFICE
We care deeply for our environment and make strong efforts to go green. Firstly, we practice mercury-free dentistry (only providing white fillings). We are also proud that we are a paper light office. Regarding the mandatory documents including informed consent, we scan, shred and recycle them after they are documented in your digital file.
