Crowns are best described as “helmets” for your teeth. They cover the entire portion of the tooth above the gum line. They are best used to restore severely broken down teeth to its original shape and prevent further fractures. They are also used for cosmetic purposes such as correcting a smile or straightening teeth when orthodontics are not an option. Crowns are strongly recommended to provide protection for teeth that have undergone root canal treatment.
All our crowns are porcelain and are completely metal free, giving you a natural looking tooth that will last longer. We created all our crowns in house as thus we can offer a fast turnaround time and can even deliver your crowns the same day.
Bridges are three or more crowns connected together to replace missing teeth. They involve the preparation of the teeth adjacent to a space and can be a useful for cases that do not allow the placement of an implant.
Depending on the size of the bridge we can create them in house. If, however they bridge is too large we will have to send them to a lab and they can take slightly longer to be created. For the bridges we created in house we can however have them completed the same day.
All our bridges are porcelain and are completely metal free, giving you a natural looking tooth.
Veneers are described as “masks” for your teeth. They are a layer of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth for both cosmetic and preventative purposes. They require less preparation than a crown and are best used to correct chips or fractures on the front teeth. They are also an alternate method to whiten your smile when conventional teeth whitening is ineffective.
Veneers are ideal for aesthetic cases involving the correcting of smiles as they minimize damage to the teeth.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.
Dental implants are intimately connected with the gum tissues and underlying bone in the mouth. Once placed the implant will below the gum line.
After a healing period of 3-6 months the tooth part of the implant can be placed. Depending on your specific condition and the type of implant chosen, we will create a treatment plan tailored to meet your needs.
- Replacing a Single Tooth If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it.
- Replacing Several Teeth If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them.
Brushing and flossing are everyday ways to keep your teeth bright, white and healthy. Still, if you feel like your smile is lacking some sparkle or is more yellow than it used to be, you’re not alone. Teeth whitening removes the built up staining caused by normal everyday life.
Our in office treatment consists of 1 session which spans 2 hours.
We use the Zoom in-office teeth whiting procedure, which is designed to lighten the colour of your teeth using a combination of a hydrogen peroxide gel and a specially designed visible LED light lamp. The Zoom treatment involves using the gel and lamp in conjunction with each other to produce maximum whitening results in the shortest possible time.
After the whitening treatment it is natural for teeth to regress somewhat in their shade. This is normally a gradual process but can be accelerated by exposing the teeth to various staining agents. We recommend staying away from any food that would stain a white shirt (Coffee, red wine, curries etc.) for 2 to 3 days after having the whitening done.
To prolong your whitening we provide a take-home kit with custom made trays. This kit will also contain a relief agent that should help with any sensitivity you might experience.
