Bonding

Applying composite tooth bonding is a restorative procedure that uses tooth-coloured composite resin to repair teeth that are decayed, chipped, fractured or discoloured. Tooth gaps can also be closed. Unlike veneers, which require laboratory work, bonding is done in the dental office.

A dental brace is a device used to correct the alignment of teeth and bite-related problems (including underbite, overbite, etc.). Braces straighten teeth by exerting steady pressure on the teeth.

extractions

Extractions

A severely damaged tooth may need to be extracted. Sometimes specific teeth may need to be removed for orthodontic treatment or to provide additional stability for more complex treatments.

fillings and Repairs

Fillings and Repairs

Dental fillings and repairs use restorative materials to repair teeth that have been compromised due to cavities or trauma.

gum surgery

Gum Surgery

In some cases, gum surgery may be required to treat damage resulting from decay, or periodontal (gum) disease. Gum surgery may also precede other treatments such as crowns and bridges.

root canals

Root Canals

Root canals treat diseased or abscessed teeth. Once a tooth is injured, cracked or decayed, it is necessary to clean out the infected tissue. This space is then sealed. It is often necessary to reinforce these teeth with a crown.

sealants

Sealants

Dental sealants, usually applied to the chewing surface of teeth, act as a barrier against decay-causing bacteria by sealing the deep grooves of the tooth. Most often, the sealants are applied to the back teeth, e.g., premolars and molars.

teeth whitening

Teeth Whitening

Teeth naturally darken with age; however, staining may be caused by foods and beverages such as berries, coffee and tea, medications such as tetracycline, smoking or a trauma to a tooth. There are various teeth whitening options available, including in-office and at-home bleaching.

oral cancer examination

Oral Cancer Examination

Oral cancer starts in the cells of the mouth, tongue or throat. Oral cancer screening is usually a routine part of dental examination. In this exam, your dentist will feel for lumps or irregular tissue changes in your neck, head, face, and inside your mouth. Your dentist will also look for sores or discolored tissue in your mouth.

mouth guards

Mouth Guards

When participating in sporting there is a risk of injuring or breaking teeth through contact with players, balls, sticks or other equipment. Custom-fitted sports guards provide protection and patients appreciate that they are easy to use. Like sports guards, custom fitted night guards provide comfort and protection against the harmful effects of teeth grinding or clenching.

Snoring or Sleep Apnea

Research has shown that undiagnosed sleep apnea can be the cause of some serious health issues. Dentists can play a key role in the treatment of certain sleep disorders, including snoring and sleep apnea. Depending on the severity, a dentist can make a dental appliance to address either condition for a patient.
