Dental Implants are substitutes for teeth and they are today’s best alternative to your natural teeth. They offer you a permanent and secure solution for replacing one or more teeth. They are made of biocompatible materials. Implants function as anchors or support for traditional forms of dentistry, such as crowns, bridges or dentures. Many of our patients will tell you that implants have changed not only their smiles and their overall appearance, but also their lives!
Oral refers to the mouth, which includes the teeth, gums, and supporting tissues. It is easy to take your oral health for granted, but it is the key to living each day comfortably. Taking good care of these tissues can prevent disease in them and throughout your body. How are problems with the tissue in your mouth linked to health problems in other places in your body?
Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their colour, shape, size or length and resulting in an improved appearance.Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials
How Do Healthy Gums Become Diseased? Periodontal disease is caused by plaque that forms on teeth. Plaque will irritate gums, causing them to become red, tender, and swollen. If not removed, plaque hardens to form tartar. Over time, the tissue that attaches the gums to the teeth is destroyed and the gums pull away form the teeth. Small pockets form between the teeth and gums and fill with more plaque. Eventually, the jawbone supporting the teeth is destroyed.
Tooth fillings coloured to look like a natural tooth are known as Composite Resin Dental Fillings. Composite Resin Dental Fillings are made of a plastic dental resin, are strong, durable, and make for a very natural looking smile.Composite resin fillings are applied in thin layers, and slowly built up to form the complete filling. A bright dental light will harden each layer before the next is applied.
Teeth whitening, or tooth bleaching, is a cosmetic dentistry procedure designed to remove stains and discolouration, as well as lighten pigmentation within the teeth.
The level of whiteness that can be achieved will depend on the level of discolouration of the teeth and how they came to be stained. Teeth that are brown or yellow due to coffee, tea, or smoking stains

Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth — the four permanent adult teeth located at the back corners of your mouth on the top and bottom.
If a wisdom tooth doesn't have room to grow (impacted wisdom tooth), resulting in pain, infection or other dental problems, you'll likely need to have it pulled. Wisdom tooth extraction may be done by a dentist or an oral surgeon.
To prevent potential future problems, some dentists and oral surgeons recommend wisdom tooth extraction even if impacted teeth aren't currently causing problems.
