During your one-hour new patient appointment we perform a full comprehensive mouth examination, which involves carefully checking for signs of tooth decay and gum disease.
Your examination also includes a soft tissue oral cancer check, as well as an assessment of the jaw joints (TMJ). We will assess your bite for how well your teeth fit together and can provide various treatment recommendations if problems or potential problems are detected.
This appointment also involves taking highly detailed digital x-rays of your teeth, as well as a full mouth x-ray (OPG).
We will then explain any concerns to you, discuss various treatment options, and together develop a treatment plan to suit your needs, time frame and budget.
Teeth Whitening Kit*
We offer our patients the SDI Pola whitening system, which we have used successfully for many years to brighten our patients’ teeth.
This product is a “take-home” kit which includes custom-made whitening trays, and two tubes of 18% carbamide peroxide gel.
The whitening trays are designed to fit the contour of your teeth accurately, which is necessary to achieve the desired result.
You will be given instructions on how to use your whitening kit. The course of treatment is usually 10-14 days, however, many people notice a significant difference after only a few applications.
*Conditions Apply – not all patients are suitable for tooth whitening. Treatment will only be recommended if you are deemed to be a suitable candidate following your comprehensive examination.
