Not just fillings, these are services that we can provide for teeth in order to bring them back to original function and appearance. Whether a tooth has been compromised by decay, an old filling that is breaking down, or perhaps just has an abnormal shape or colour, we have plenty of options that may be suitable. - Crowns or onlays are required when so much original tooth is missing that a filling can’t be done properly. - Veneers can be placed to correct a number of problems, from colour discrepancies, chipping, malformed teeth, to minor alignment problems. Be careful here, veneers are not a panacea as they may be portrayed elsewhere. Like anything else, there is a proper time and place for veneers, and they should not be placed indiscriminately.

Endodontic Dental Services

Endodontics basically refers to root canals. When a tooth has had irreversible damage to the nerve, there are only two options: either the tooth has to be extracted, or an attempt can be made to save the tooth via a root canal.

Sealants

Decay in the grooves of teeth is the most difficult type of decay to prevent, because it is due to simple food and bacterial packing deep into the grooves.

Traditionally referred to as “cleaning”, this involves the mechanical removal of surface plaque from your teeth, whether it is above or below the gums.
