Teeth whitening is offered to patients who want to improve the aesthetics of their smile by changing the color of their teeth. The procedure can be performed safely either at the chair by our professionals or at home using custom fitted trays. The treatment is generally without discomfort and the final result is noticed in only a few days.
The dental crown is a good solution when the visible part of the tooth needs to be restored while the root is still healthy. The bridge, on the other hand, is a solution to completely replace a missing tooth. It must have an adjacent tooth on each side to be attached to and thus replace the visible part of the tooth. Bridges and crowns are fixed (cemented) treatments that reconstruct the part of the tooth that is visible to the eye. Made of very strong porcelain, they are also highly aesthetic, since their shape and colour are chosen according to the client’s specific needs.
When a tooth is affected by a problem and no other treatment is possible, dental extraction is recommended. An extraction can be simple or surgical, depending on the complexity of the procedure. A local anesthesia is first performed in order to carry out the treatment in total comfort.
When a tooth decay develops, it is important to treat it before it widens further and causes more serious problems. The decay is then removed, and a filling material is inserted into the cavity to restore the tooth. The filling can be made of composite (white resin) or amalgam (grey material).
Root canal treatment is recommended when a tooth is infected or the nerve is exposed. The dentist removes the affected part of the tooth (the pulp), disinfects the root canal and fills it with a material to seal it properly. Thereafter, it is always recommended to protect the tooth with a crown, since it becomes more fragile.
The veneer is a layer of material placed on the surface of one or more teeth. It improves the aesthetics of the smile, because it allows to change the color and to give the desired shape. The veneer can be made of two types of materials, composite (white resin) or porcelain. Providing a natural appearance, the veneer will make your smile more harmonious and appealing to you.
Some oral conditions can cause bone resorption. Lack of bone weakens the jaw and renders several treatments impossible. Bone grafting is therefore a recommended surgical treatment for patients who need dental treatment but do not have enough bone to support it. The bone can be added in height and/or width.
When it is necessary to replace one or more missing teeth, there are various options available to you. However, the dental implant is the only one that comes closest to a natural tooth. The treatment consists in putting a screw in the bone to replace the root. Subsequently, a crown is placed on it to rebuild the visible part of the tooth.
Orthodontics is a treatment intended to change the location of teeth by applying light pressure until the desired position is reached. Different devices can be used to correct both aesthetics and functionality. Thus, the treatment improves not only the smile, but also health, because a proper dental position reduces the risk of tooth decay, enhances the balance of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and prevents premature wear of the teeth.
Periodontal disease is a condition that affects and destroys the supporting structures of the tooth. Left untreated, it can cause many problems, including the loss of the affected tooth or teeth. The disease can be stabilized with periodontal treatments performed in the clinic and a thorough hygiene at home.
A dental prosthesis is a device made of metal and acrylic intended to replace missing teeth. It can be either partial in order to replace some missing teeth by attaching to the remaining ones or complete for people who are completely edentulous. The device can be removable or fixed for maximum comfort when screwed to dental implants.
Nitrous oxide sedation involves breathing a safe gas that will reduce your stress when undergoing the treatment so that you can enjoy a soothing appointment. Nitrous oxide can be used for both children and adults who feel a need for it. In just a few minutes, it will bring you a feeling of well-being.
