Regular removal of stains, plaque and tartar is essential to the long-term health and appearance of your teeth and gums. The dental hygienist provides this service.

Bleaching is a very effective technique for lightening teeth. It will not, however, alter the appearance of existing fillings and crowns.
Cosmetic dentistry includes various techniques that help us alter or restore the shape of worn, chipped, or broken teeth. Desirable results are achieved quickly. The longevity of these restorations depend upon the patient and techniques used.
These are thin porcelain surfaces that are bonded over the front tooth surface. Very little tooth reduction is needed in order to have a veneer. Veneers can be used to restore ageing teeth that are worn down, close spaces and change the colour of teeth, or repair chipped teeth.
These are used when a tooth is heavily filled or was previously treated with a root canal treatment. Crowns provide excellent strength to the tooth while improving overall aesthetics.
Bridges are primarily designed to replace missing teeth.
This type of tooth replacement involves the placing of a titanium metal root within the bone. This artificial root is allowed to integrate into the bone for a number of weeks before a crown or bridge is attached to it. During the healing phase, a temporary denture restores your smile.
Root Canal Treatment
A root canal treatment is used to treat damage to the nerves or soft tissues inside your teeth. This involves removing the nerve inside the tooth and filling the roots. This stops the pain, sensitivity or recurring infection.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
When a wisdom tooth does not develop properly, it may not come up through the gum or it may only come through part-way. In both cases, it is better to have the wisdom tooth removed to avoid future health problems. Appropriate exam and x-rays are required to make an accurate diagnosis.
Bruxing is the unintentional grinding together of your teeth. Most people do not even know that they are doing it, because they are sleeping or concentrating on an activity. There needs to be therapy to keep the teeth from being damaged by the constant grinding.

Sealants are an excellent way to reduce the number of cavities in a young person's mouth. A sealant is a very thin layer of material that is bonded to the biting surface of the back teeth, creating a barrier that protects the teeth from getting cavities.
