Our General Dentistry services

Composite Fillings

Fill cavities with tooth-coloured materials to halt their growth and prevent permanent harm to your tooth. These white fillings seamlessly blend with your natural teeth, looking and feeling great.

Dental Bonding

Address dental issues by repairing chips and cracked teeth or enhancing the aesthetics of existing healthy teeth.

Dental Bridges

Efficiently address gaps in your smile by replacing one or more missing teeth with a precisely crafted dental prosthesis.

Dental Crowns

In the realm of restorative dentistry, dental crowns are indispensable, offering substantial enhancements to the strength, visual appeal, and lifespan of your teeth.

Dental Extractions

Tooth extraction is a widely practiced procedure known for its low level of pain or discomfort.

Dental Implants

An implant serves as a replacement for a natural tooth root and is completed with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to aid in the restoration of your teeth's functionality, appearance, and natural feel.

Root Canal

Root canals can be careful, quick, and relatively pain-free bringing you immediate relief and saving your natural tooth.

Same-Day Crowns

Custom made from start to finish in just one appointment -- no temporary crown needed.

Teeth Cleanings

The key to preventing gum disease and tooth decay lies in regular checkups and cleanings. Don't forget to schedule your dental appointments every 6 to 8 months to prevent sudden dental pain and unexpected financial strains.

The Importance of Early Intervention and Routine Care

At our practice, your health is our top priority. We believe that prevention is key to maintaining a healthy smile. Our proactive approach to routine care and early intervention stems from genuine care and concern for your well-being. By keeping your teeth, gums, jaw, and tongue healthy now and addressing any issues promptly, we aim to minimize discomfort, pain, and unexpected expenses for you. This commitment is what keeps our patients smiling.

Keep Your Natural Teeth Longer

Cavities are common among young adults, while gum disease affects older adults most. Good oral hygiene at home is crucial. During check-ups, we catch early signs of gum disease and decay to prevent issues. This helps avoid discomfort and unexpected costs, keeping your smile healthy.

Cost-Saving Tips

Treating early signs of tooth decay, such as with composite fillings, is a wise, budget-friendly investment. Routine teeth cleaning and exams are predictable, low-cost expenses that can easily fit into your budget. Keep in mind, more complex procedures necessary to address serious health issues may incur higher costs.

Don't Even Think About It

Enjoy your meals without hesitation and feel proud of your smile. Maintaining optimal oral health means you won’t have to worry about a thing. Well-cared-for teeth are naturally attractive, comfortable, and dependable. No discomfort, no inflammation, and definitely no painful toothaches.

Frequently Asked Questions

During a routine dental check-up, our team performs a thorough examination and professional teeth cleaning. These regular appointments are crucial for eliminating plaque and tartar buildup that can persist despite regular brushing and flossing. They also enable us to closely monitor your general oral health, with special attention to identifying any developing issues early on.

Cavities develop when leftover food particles, particularly those in difficult-to-clean areas, become a source of nourishment for oral bacteria. These bacteria multiply and generate acidic substances that accumulate on teeth, gradually eroding enamel. Diets rich in sugars or acidic foods and beverages, such as coffee or soda, can accelerate this process of tooth decay.

The key is to maintain excellent oral hygiene and dietary habits at home to improve your chances of preventing cavities. Genetic predisposition can make some individuals more prone to cavities, due to factors such as inherent susceptibility to cavity-causing bacteria or overcrowded teeth that are hard to clean.

Yes, getting a filling is recommended even if you don’t feel pain. Fillings prevent further tooth decay and future discomfort. It’s beneficial to address the issue while it’s small and manageable.

Preventing and sometimes reversing tooth decay begins with regular cleanings. Early signs of decay can be managed with fluoride treatments and composite fillings. If infection sets in, a root canal can often save the tooth. For more advanced decay, options include using natural-looking dental crowns or dental veneers to restore the tooth’s appearance and function. In severe cases, extraction may be necessary, followed by restoration with implants or bridges. Treatment options are tailored to individual needs and circumstances.

It is safe and encouraged to undergo preventive teeth cleaning and routine exams during pregnancy. These visits help prevent oral infections and manage any dental issues that may arise during this time. In case of a dental emergency, such as an infection, more invasive treatments like a root canal may be necessary. However, elective procedures such as teeth whitening should be postponed until after the baby is born.

Generally, yes, but it’s crucial to inform your dentist about any medical conditions, medications, or allergies you have before any treatment. This information helps ensure your safety and allows the dentist to make any necessary adjustments to your care.

Getting a second opinion is often a good idea for significant dental treatments or if you have concerns about the recommended treatment plan. It can provide reassurance and help you make an informed decision about your dental care.
