OrthodonticsHaving straight, healthy teeth is important for the health of your child's mouth, both now and in the future. That's why orthodontic assessments, and treatments if necessary, are so important. Orthodontics is simply the study of how the teeth align in the mouth and what the “bite” (the way teeth align when the upper and lower jaws are brought together) looks like. Alignment problems such as an uneven bite or over crowding are treated using equipment such as dental braces and... read more »
Invisalign OrthodonticsWe are certified providers of the Invisalign system for straightening of teeth and correction of bite problems. Invisalign is a convenient and discrete way to re-align teeth, and is especially popular with adult patients. Invisalign uses a clear brace that is molded to fit your teeth perfectly to slowly re-align your teeth, giving you a naturally straighter smile that you can be confident about.
Dental ImplantsWhen a tooth is lost, the gum and bone around the site can shrink. A dental implant helps to support the surround structure and decrease the amount of bone loss, meaning that you gain not only a better looking smile, but strength as well.
Dental BondingIf you notice a crack in your tooth, it is crucial that you make an appointment with us immediately. In some cases, a filling or a bit of dental bonding may be able to repair the crack in the tooth and keep it from causing more problems for you. However, more extensive cracks may be required to be repaired with a veneer or a crown. In extreme cases, you may need to have the tooth extracted and replaced with a dental implant.
VeneersFor a veneer, only the front layer of the tooth will be ground away and your tooth will be safe until your custom veneer is fitted.
CrownsThe CEREC process is remarkably efficient and has made once visit porcelain crowns possible. The dentist first uses an intraoral camera to capture the necessary images to input into a computer program that then digitally constructs the tooth so that then dentist can create the porcelain crown necessary for the specific tooth that needs to be repaired. Once the dentist has made his alterations to the digital tooth model, he then sends it to a milling machine. The milling machine then creates a new artificial tooth out of ceramic using diamond coated milling units in less than 20 minutes. The dentist can then paint, polish, glaze or add any other finishing touches to the tooth before inserting it into the patient’s mouth. Depending on the type of ceramic used for the construction, the crown is inserted into the patient’s mouth using an oral cement or adhesive to integrate the “tooth” with the rest of the patient’s teeth.
Root Canal TreatmentIf the inside of your tooth has become damaged or infected, a root canal treatment can be used to save the tooth. Root canals have a bad reputation as being very difficult and painful, but in actual fact a root canal can be completed in around two sittings, with local anesthetic keeping you comfortable throughout the procedure.
DenturesWe understand how important your dentures are, not only for chewing and speaking, but for confidence and giving you a smile you can feel confident in. Dentures are subject to wear and tear through every day use, and sometimes they will become damaged and need replacing. When that happens, you want to get your dentures fixed as soon as possible. That's why we provide a swift and high quality denture repair and reline service.
Tooth WhiteningYour teeth can get stained through everyday eating and drinking. Drinking beverages such as tea, coffee, red wine and cola, alongside smoking, can all stain your teeth. Teeth whitening is a good way to clean your teeth and remove such stains, restoring your teeth to healthy whiteness. Zoom whitening uses a patented system of Zoom whitening gel combined with a laser to activate the gel's whitening properties.
Cosmetic DentistryCosmetic dentistry always starts with a consultation and an examination of your teeth to find out what kind of treatment will give you the best results. Your dentist will then use a tool called a burr to gently grind your tooth down, using a local anesthetic to make sure you are comfortable.

Dental SealantsDental lasers and air abrasion technology are both alternatives to drilling teeth for various procedures. Air abrasion is used to prepare teeth for sealants that prevent tooth decay and remove enamel and dentin stains. Laser is used to treat oral ulcers and spot early tooth decay before it is apparent to the naked eye or visible through x-ray images.
Dental ExaminationDigital x-rays can show hidden teeth (such as wisdom, permanent or extra teeth), bone loss, and cavities that would not be apparent without x-ray technology. The following four types of x-rays are the most common dental examination x-ray types...
