At Smile Style Dental, we welcome every new patient to participate in a one-hour comprehensive examination.
A white/tooth coloured filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then refilled.
Bruxism is excessive clenching or grinding of the teeth that is not a part of the normal chewing movements. It can lead to excessive wear or breakage of teeth. In some adults and children the clenching and grinding may occur at night as well as during the day. During sleep they have no conscious control over these excessive movements.
CROWNS & BRIDGES
Crowns, also referred to as a ‘cap’, covers the whole tooth for strength & protection. This increases the lifespan of a tooth that has been heavily filled or weakened. Crowns are matched to the colour and size of your own teeth and are either entirely made from reinforced porcelain, porcelain with metal inside, or a gold alloy. Your dentist will discuss which type is recommended for your particular tooth.
We offer full and partial dentures (acrylic and cobalt chrome) in conjunction with the dental technician.
ROOT CANAL THERAPY
Once a healthy tooth becomes heavily decayed or cracked, there is a possibility that bacteria can invade the tooth and access the nerve inside. When the bacteria infects the nerve, the tooth starts to die. This may present as a toothache or the tooth may be sore to chew on.
