For cavities or broken teeth, we offer tooth-colored composite resin restorations using the Bioclear technique, which utilizes clear matrices to produce lifelike contouring of restored teeth through injection molding of heated resin material. This approach results in strong and aesthetically superior dental fillings.
Occasionally a tooth may become hopeless and needs to be removed. We can provide a comfortable tooth extraction in many cases. For more complex cases we will refer you to one of our local oral surgeons.
Root canal or endodontic treatment is necessary for teeth with large decay, severe trauma or fractures, or abscesses or inflammation causing pain. Crowns are recommended to protect the treated teeth from fracture. In complex cases, we may recommend a visit to a root canal specialist.
Night Guards and Sports Appliances
Night guards protect teeth from grinding and are most effective at night when people are not aware of their grinding. These guards separate teeth and slightly open the mouth, preventing damage. Contact sports like hockey and football pose a risk of tooth and soft tissue injuries as well as head injuries like concussions, which a properly fitted sports guard can help prevent.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns or "caps" are used to restore severely damaged teeth or protect root canal-treated teeth from fracture and restore function. They cover the whole tooth or replace missing structure. Bridges replace one or two missing teeth. We use digital scanning in cases of advanced restorations.
Dental implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are placed into the bone surgically by a specialist. Once they are integrated into the bone a crown, a bridge or even a denture can be attached them.
Dental veneers are thin, tooth coloured facings for your teeth that bonded in place. They help correct spacing between teeth as well as their colour, size and contour.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide sedation is available for anxious patients during dental procedures. This involves breathing in a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen through a mask, producing a relaxed feeling while remaining conscious and able to respond. After the procedure, patients are put on oxygen and usually return to normal within 10 minutes.
Your teeth change colour naturally over their lifetime, and teeth whitening can help you get a much brighter smile. Take home whitening treatment is available at our office. Custom trays that fit over your teeth will be fabricated which you will wear at home every day for 2-3 weeks.
A sedative may be prescribed to a more anxious patient to produce a moderate level of relaxation. You will need someone to drive you from the appointment as you can not operate a vehicle while on these types of medication.
