A mouthguard is the best way to protect your teeth from sports injuries and we can custom-make this important protective piece for you, but there are many other ways to lose a tooth that you can’t anticipate.  No matter how it occurs, tooth loss can be devastating- damaging your self-esteem and compromising your jaw, gums and chewing and speaking functions.

A single implant, especially when placed soon after tooth loss, will save your smile and help you to avoid more complex treatments later on.  Because implants are fused to the jawbone, they help stop bone loss and prevent neighboring teeth from shifting out of alignment.

No matter what your age, replacing missing teeth is important to your general and oral health.  An implant, topped by a beautiful white crown, will make your smile whole again.

If you are looking to transform the appearance of your smile, you may be considering getting porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments and can improve the way your teeth look in just two appointments. Each veneer is custom-designed for a specific tooth and is created in the perfect shape, size, and color needed to naturally enhance its appearance. The process to fit dental veneers is simple too and takes place over two visits to your dentist. The first is used to prepare whichever teeth are being covered with porcelain veneers. This involves administering local anesthetic so that a little of the enamel can be removed, which will ensure that the veneers do not make the tooth appear too thick. Impressions are then taken which will be used to create your veneers before you are fitted with a temporary device and can leave. The second appointment, a week or two later, will involve checking the fit of your veneers and securing them permanently in place.
