Periodontics (Cleanings and Gum Surgery)
Periodontal (gum/bone) disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. If left untreated, the disease is irreversible and can result in tooth loss. Detection and diagnosis of periodontal disease is the key to prevention.
Operative Dentistry (Fillings, Inlays and Onlays)
Over your lifetime, fillings may be replaced due to recurrent decay or fracture of the filling or tooth. Each time the old filling is removed, and any decay with it, the restoration becomes larger with less remaining tooth structure to retain the new restoration. When there is insufficient tooth structure to retain a new filling, other treatments may become necessary to allow proper function of the tooth. There are various treatments that are dependent on how much tooth structure remains, including: bonded fillings, inlays, and onlays. We are strong believers of biological dentistry and use mercury-free fillings.
Our dental clinic is designed to help children feel at home and comfortable, and our experienced dental staff is trained to respond to the special concerns and needs of our patients.

Oral surgery covers any treatment which involves the removal or repositioning of oral tissues. It could be from a single tooth removal to jaw repositioning, by using techniques such as extractions, wisdom teeth removal, and tooth preparation for prosthodontics.
Prosthodontics (Crowns, Bridges and Dentures)
Prosthodontics are used when teeth are broken down or missing, causing problems in both the bite and appearance of the mouth. The most common solutions to these problems employ crowns, bridges, or dentures to augment or replace the teeth in your mouth. Restoration is usually so successful that others cannot visually discern restored teeth from real teeth. We even provide Cerec single visit ceramic fillings and crowns.
Orthodontics focuses on diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental and facial irregularities by repairing 'bad bites.' The practice of orthodontics requires extensive professional skill in the design, application, and control of corrective appliances (braces) to bring teeth, lips, and jaws into proper alignment and achieve optimum facial balance.
Dental Implants (Placement and Restoration)
Dental implants are the newest and most permanent way to replace missing teeth. Implants are basically artificial teeth roots that are surgically placed into the jaw bone. Get your dental implants today!
Endodontics (Root Canal)
If your tooth's nerve chamber becomes infected by decay or damaged by trauma, root canal treatment is often the only way to save your tooth. Cleaning out the infected pulp chamber repairs the damage.
For whitening of dark, dull, or stained teeth, bleaching may be the simplest solution. Bleaching is performed by taking an impression of your teeth and fabricating a soft, thin, clear tray from the resulting model. This tray is filled with a bleaching gel and placed directly over the teeth in your mouth. This can then be worn for several hours during the day, or at night while you sleep. Results are usually discernible after a single day, however, for optimal results, most patients use their bleaching tray for 1-2 weeks. This can also be influenced by the different bleaching gels that are used in this procedure.
When teeth are chipped or slightly decayed, bonded composite resins may be used to repair the damage. First, the tooth structure is cleaned and etched. A clear adhesive is applied to the area and a tooth-coloured bonding resin material is placed on the tooth. It is permanently hardened and fused with a hand held light gun. This process is called photo-curing. Bonding makes a great tooth coloured filling for small cavities and broken or chipped surfaces. It can also be used to close spaces between teeth. Additionally, it can be used to cover the entire outside surface of a tooth to change its color or shape. However, bonding has its limits; It may not be strong enough, aesthetic enough, or durable enough for certain individual situations. If so, the next choice would be porcelain restorations.
Porcelain Crowns / Veneers and Inlays / Onlays
Many times, the demands of cosmetic changes in the mouth are too great for simple bonding. This is when porcelain crowns, laminate veneers, inlays or onlays may be used. Porcelain restorations can change an entire smile and are quick, painless, and dramatic. They can change the shape, colour, size, and arrangement of teeth or any combination of these factors and can actually be used as an alternative to orthodontic treatment. The best part about porcelain restorations is that they can be placed in two visits, minimizing the amount of time you would need to come in. The technique consists of first shaving a thin layer of tooth structure, and creating an impression of the prepared teeth to send to a dental laboratory. In the lab, a ceramist will use this impression to create a custom-fit porcelain restoration consisting of all the changes in shape, size, colour and teeth arrangement that you would like. Upon your second visit, these restorations are then bonded onto your prepared teeth with a high intensity light. Porcelain crowns or veneers are the most popular techniques used for dramatic smile makeovers.
Porcelain veneers that do not require removal of tooth structure, Lumineers by Cerinate are a terrific cosmetic solution for permanently stained, chipped, discoloured, misaligned teeth. They are a porcelain veneer that can be made as thin as a contact lens and placed over existing teeth without requiring painful removal of sensitive tooth structure (unlike traditional veneers).
Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns
Sometimes, porcelain crowns cannot withstand the biting pressure of certain teeth in your mouth. In these cases, a metal alloy must be placed under the porcelain for strength. Once the teeth are prepared, an impression is sent to the lab where a metal coping is made for the prepared tooth. This is then covered with porcelain and the entire restoration is sent back to be bonded to your prepared teeth. Since these crowns do not have the translucency of pure porcelain crowns, aesthetics may be slightly compromised in some situations, however, a talented ceramist with experience in custom staining can usually overcome these limitations, thereby creating life-like restorations. This technique can also be used to create strong, aesthetically-pleasing bridges to replace missing teeth.
