Dental bonding involves attaching composite resin to chipped, cracked, or unevenly shaped teeth. Let’s enhance your smile and oral health with this simple and reversible procedure.
Tooth-coloured or natural-looking fillings are dental restorations used to treat cavities. They can also be applied to chipped or broken teeth.
Natural-looking and toxic-free, porcelain crowns are custom dental caps that cover the visible part of the tooth. They protect and strengthen a weakened or damaged tooth or support a dental implant.
Dental bridges fill the gap left by missing teeth. They consist of crowns on either side of the gap and an artificial tooth or teeth in the middle.
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. Full dentures replace all missing teeth, while partial dentures take the place of a few missing teeth.
Professional dental hygiene cleanings are routine procedures performed to maintain and improve oral health. They prevent bacterial growth and tartar buildup and slow tooth discolouration.
White fillings are colour-matched to the tooth, making them hard to notice. They’re bonded to the tooth surface to restore its shape or correct imperfections.
Oral surgery refers to surgical procedures performed in or around the mouth or related structures, such as the jaw. It varies widely, but some common ones include molar extraction and dental implants.
Teeth whitening is a dentist-administered procedure that lightens the shade of the teeth. It can be done in the office or at home, depending on your needs and preferences.
A nightguard is a custom dental appliance resembling a retainer. It protects the teeth from potential damage caused by grinding and clenching and prevents jaw pain and headaches associated with it.
Mouth guards are also custom devices fabricated to protect the mouth against trauma caused by injuries or accidents. They’re worth investing in if you take part in sports or outdoor activities.
Orthodontics focuses on diagnosing, preventing, and treating bite irregularities, or how your teeth fit together. Common orthodontic issues include crowded, crooked, and protruding teeth.
Root canal therapy saves a badly damaged or infected tooth. The dental pulp is cleaned, and decay is removed from the area. Find out if you need it too.
An implant is a permanent tooth replacement option. It’s a titanium screw attached to the jaw bone to replace the tooth roots and serve as a stable foundation for the artificial tooth.
Dental veneers, or porcelain veneers, are extra-thin, custom-made shells attached to the surface of the tooth. A veneer offers a solution for chipped, cracked, or unevenly coloured teeth.
Comprehensive dental exams are a thorough assessment of your oral health history and current status. It often includes X-rays and oral cancer screenings, both preventative dental measures.
Dental emergencies are dental issues that require immediate attention. If ignored, these problems can be potentially life-threatening.
A dental X-ray is a diagnostic and treatment tool that shows decayed tooth areas, bone loss, decay beneath fillings, and the position of teeth, among many others. There are several types of dental x-rays.
A dental checkup allows your dentist to spot potential issues in your mouth or check the condition of your dental work. It’s usually advised to do it twice a year or every six months.
Tooth polishing is done with dental scaling to remove deposits from the surfaces of the teeth. It leaves the teeth smooth and glossy, making it hard for debris to cling to the teeth.
