What We Do
We offer a complete spectrum of dental procedures within our office. This allows you to make informed choices regarding your oral health. We will help guide you through your options to achieve optimal tooth care and to help provide you with a beautiful healthy smile.
Check Ups & Oral Hygiene
Your optimal oral health can only be measured and achieved with regular visits and preventive maintenance. It is our goal to have our patients in ‘maintenance mode’ where together we negate the ongoing need for restorative treatment as the oral environment remains strong and resistant to all that attempts to infiltrate and tip the scales to a ‘diseased’ state. When required for protection or desired for esthetics we provide the latest proven types of restorations. While we take pride in our restorative skills, our goal is prevention and a little maintenance can go a long way.
We offer emergency care and consultation to all our patients. If you require attention during office hours, we will do our best to accommodate you in a timely manner. If you are seeking attention outside office hours, please call the office and follow our voice mail instructions. Non-patients are welcome to call during office hours to become a patient. Should immediate attention be required outside such hours, care should be sought from your family dentist with your relevant dental history.
Crown & Bridge
A crown, also called a cap, is a hollow, artificial tooth used to cover a damaged or decayed tooth. The crown restores the tooth and protects it from further damage. Crowns can also be used to cover a discolored or misshapen tooth. A tooth fixed with a crown looks and works very much like a natural tooth. You may need a crown if you have a root canal, a large filling in a tooth, or a broken tooth.
A bridge is a dental restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth. It is typically made up of an artificial tooth fused between 2 crowns (a hollow, artificial tooth that fits over a natural tooth or a dental implant). The bridge is held firmly in place by natural teeth on each side of the missing one(s) or by dental implants. A bridge is permanent and cannot be removed.
Root Canal Treatment
When the nerve of your tooth becomes infected, a successful root canal treatment lets you keep the tooth rather than having to pull it out. Keeping your tooth helps to prevent your other teeth from drifting out of line and causing jaw problems. Saving a natural tooth avoids having to replace it with an artificial tooth. Treatment involves the process of removing infected, injured or dead pulp from your tooth.
Tooth extractions can be required for many reasons from tooth decay and pain to allowing room for other teeth to grow in. After an extraction, it is important to rest. If you are active, you may feel more discomfort. Sometimes after minor oral surgery you may have pain, bleeding and swelling. Proper care after dental extractions will help your mouth heal quickly and cleanly
The most common treatment for a cavity is a dental filling or dental restoration. A filling is a treatment to restore the function, integrity, and morphology of missing tooth structure resulting from caries or external trauma.
Invisalign aligners are the clear alternative to metal braces for adults and teens. These clear aligners are the virtually invisible way to improve your smile. Your Invisalign clear aligners are custom-made for you and fit snugly over your teeth. Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed.

It is recommended by the Canadian Dental Association that a child is brought for oral assessment to their family dentist within 6 months of the first tooth erupting or 1 year of age. Early childhood dental disease remains a significant problem, as evidenced by numbers of children treated in hospitals for severe decay. Early childhood dental disease also has the potential to adversely affect the general health of young children.
Dentures are artificial replacements for your natural teeth and gums. If an accident, disease or poor oral health care has left you with only a few healthy teeth or none at all, your dentist or prosthodontist might suggest dentures to replace your missing teeth.
There are 2 types of dentures: partial and complete. For both types, we can can make a model of your teeth by taking impressions. The models are used to custom-make your dentures.
