Cleaning and Prevention
Hello Dental is founded on the principle of prevention. All patients are recommended biannual cleanings and examinations. Not only do they help you quash dental problems before they arise, they leave your gums healthier, and your teeth cleaner and whiter. A professional cleaning removes hard plaque that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. It also involves a fluoride treatment and polish to help protect and soothe your teeth and gums. Even if you haven’t had a cleaning in over two years, it’s never too late to treat your teeth.

Crowns, Bridges and Veneers

If you have a damaged or decayed tooth, our dentists can help you choose the best solution. Crowns and bridges are custom-fitted tooth prosthetics that function and look like natural, healthy teeth. Veneers are a less invasive alternative, but may only be a solution for those with slight tooth damage or discoloration. These thin porcelain or resin shells come in customizable colours and are bonded to the surface of your teeth.

Dental Crowns

A crown, otherwise known as a cap, is custom-fitted to your bite and is placed over your natural tooth or dental implant. We recommend this procedure for those who have an intact tooth without root rot. The tooth may be damaged or decayed on the surface.

Procedure:

  • We will reduce the problematic tooth for a proper crown fit
  • An impression will be taken of your bite for crown fabrication
  • The colour of porcelain prosthetics can then be customized
  • We will fit you with a temporary crown until the lab makes your permanent one
  • You will come in again for permanent crown fitting

Bridge

To replace a missing tooth that has neighboring teeth with decay and/or large fillings, or a tooth that has been missing for a long time. It can provide a solution for multiple problems through one single system. Bridges are used to strengthen the teeth neighbouring, it also provides a false tooth that appears to emerge from the gum. This is a fixed appliance, which you do not need to remove for eating or cleaning. It is comfortable and durable.

Veneers

If you’re looking to cosmetically correct or enhance the appearance of one or more teeth, we suggest veneers. They are very thin, porcelain or resin shells that you can customize in color and shape. They are non-invasive and are resistant to future stains.

This is fun dentistry. Everyone loves to come in for this treatment. No pain, not much drilling and best of all stunning results. It can revitalize and provide an instant youthful appearance. With good oral hygiene, veneers are a permanent long term solution.

Beautiful smiles are achieved only through meticulous planning. We love this process as it gets our creativity going, our patients are also involved in directing and sharing their final vision for their gnashers.

Invisalign®

There are various ways to correct crooked or crowded teeth without the use of traditional braces. This technique works by way of placing, in sequence, clear, hard plastic retainers over your teeth. Each varies in shape and is customized to your bite. They must be removed for eating and may influence your speech. Whether you are an adult or a teen, our experienced Invisalign® Doctor will help you decide which method is best for you.

Invisalign® allows the doctor and patient to see the final projected results before treatment begins. Literally seeing is believing.

  • Improved comfort over traditional braces
  • Natural tooth appearance

Extractions

Our dentists make every effort to preserve your natural teeth. However, extractions are necessary when decay has made the tooth unsalvageable or when you have an advanced periodontal disease. When a tooth is malformed, damaged, impacted or ingrown, different procedures are used, but all extractions are considered surgery. Depending on which tooth is removed; we can offer you a replacement in the form of a dental implant or oral prosthetic.

Fillings

Used to prevent the spread of tooth decay or correct any cosmetic damage, a filling is just one of the ways our dentists preserve your health. Before placement, any rot must be drilled out. We offer local anesthesia along with sedation to ensure maximum comfort for our patients. Hello Dental is a mercury-free clinic. We only provide reliable, and biocompatible material for our patients. Your safety as well as the safety and well-being of our staff is important to us.

If your mouth has multiple amalgam fillings it is important you understand the damages and harm this is causing to your general health and oral health. The best time to do this treatment is before the pain settles in.

Dental Implants

A dental implant mimics the form and function of a natural tooth, which consists of a root and a crown. The crown is the visible part of your tooth. It is used to chew food and is therefore the most susceptible to cavities. The crown is attached to the jawbone by way of the root. When decay has gone deep enough or when a periodontal disease has advanced enough to warrant an extraction, the entire tooth, root and all, is taken out. The dental implant is a titanium root that gets fitted into a socket that we create in your jaw. Once the root heals, we place an artificial crown on top. The new crown is customized to match your bite and the colour of your teeth.

What are the benefits of getting teeth implants?

  • They look and act like natural teeth
  • They can last a lifetime with the right care
  • You don’t need any adhesives
  • They improve appearance, comfort, and speech
  • It’s easier to eat

Night and Snore Guards

Excessive jaw clenching and bruxism can accelerate tooth and jaw deterioration. Meanwhile, snoring can impact the quality of your own sleep and that of those around you. To help our patients most comfortably avoid this, we customize snore and night guards to their bite. One type of night guard acts as a cushion between the top and bottom dental arches while the other creates more space between the front teeth to prevent the top and lower jaw from touching. Snore prevention mouthpieces look similar, but instead of acting as a cushion or spacer, they keep the lower jaw forward, thereby preventing pressure on the larynx.

What are the causes of teeth grinding?

  • Stress or anxiety
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Certain medications or recreational drugs

What are the causes of snoring?

  • Sleeping on your back
  • When the larynx is compressed by a relaxed jaw
  • Large tonsils or a long soft palate

Periodontal Maintenance

Among the causes for periodontal (gum) disease are genetic susceptibility, smoking, and other illnesses like diabetes. Periodontal maintenance involves removing plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line. Most gum diseases are preventable with proper oral hygiene. However, what can start out as gingivitis (inflamed or bleeding gums) can quickly turn into periodontitis. In such cases, gums pull away from the tooth to create “pockets,” thereby exposing a dental root to infection. It can also lead to prolonged bad breath, loose teeth, painful chewing and other complications.

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is faster, more effective, and longer lasting that treatments you find over the counter. As we age, our teeth darken over time. We can brighten your teeth by five to ten shades in a single session, but maintaining good oral hygiene and steering away from certain foods and beverages will help keep any future whitening services to a minimum. We may also prescribe some medication for you to use at home that helps the whitening process.

Procedure:

  • Thorough cleansing and polishing of teeth
  • Application of gum protectant
  • Application of whitening agent
  • Whitening agent is laser-activated
  • Whitening agent is left on teeth for several minutes
  • Teeth and gums are rinsed
