We welcome patients of all ages to our clinic! We are happy to discuss your scheduling needs, so just give us a call and speak to someone from our friendly front desk staff!

Dentures & Partials

At first, your dentist may recommend that you wear your dentures to sleep. This will speed up your mouth’s adjustment to the dentures and allow you to quickly detect and correct any spots where the fit is uncomfortable. After your mouth has adjusted to the dentures, they may be worn throughout the day and removed while you sleep.

Paediatric Dentistry

We will determine the type of preventive care necessary for your child based on your child’s unique needs. If you have concerns about certain types of treatment, call our clinic; we will be happy to discuss those with you.
 

Porcelain Veneers

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Porcelain veneers are considered to be a permanent restoration since they are bonded to the surface of your teeth. They are made of porcelain, a very strong material, so it is rare for them to chip or fall off. In the unlikely event that this does happen, however, the veneer can be repaired or replaced and bonded back into place.

Teeth Whitening

Whitening products available for purchase in shoppes are designed to be "one size fits all" which often translates to "one size fits none".

The strength of the whitening product is much lower than what you can get in a professional kit, meaning that you must use the product for a longer period of time and are still unlikely to get the results you can find in a professional product. Additionally, your results are not being monitored by the dentist you know and trust. 

Tooth-Coloured Fillings

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Unlike metal fillings, tooth-coloured fillings are a custom-mixed resin composite. The composite mixture is matched to your tooth colour and bonded directly to the tooth. This usually results in a filling that is nearly indistinguishable from your natural tooth.
