Dental problems don't always happen during regularly scheduled office hours. This can be disruptive and can range from a minor inconvenience to severe pain. It may happen in the form of a chipped tooth, broken filling, oral trauma, infection and possibly swelling. Here at Bay Well Dental, we offer flexible morning and evening hours, including Saturdays to accommodate your emergency needs.
Years ago, aesthetic improvements in dentistry often meant multiple appointments and invasive procedures. But thanks to advances in cosmetic dentistry, dental professionals these days are able to help patients achieve spectacular results in a far less painful and time-consuming fashion.
If you're looking for a dental office that employs friendly and helpful staff, Bay Well Dental is a practice worth visiting. Our dentists were trained at the University of Toronto and are dedicated to staying current with new advancements and techniques to benefit your teeth and enhance your smile. Our practice was established in 1973, and ever since we've been committed to providing exceptional dental care.
Regular dental checkups and cleanings are essential to maintaining your oral health. During your cleaning appointment, your hygienist and dentist will inspect for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, gum recession and tooth wear. They will do an preliminary oral cancer screen and assess other problems that you may not even be aware of. This is all in addition to providing a thorough cleaning and polish. Our goal is to help you maintain a healthy smile by designing a periodontal program to suit your needs. If its been more than 6 months, call us to book a cleaning and check up today!
Many of us have gaps between the teeth. This may be a concern in the front teeth particularly. To close these gaps several options may be chosen. At times a porcelain veneer or laminate may be recommended to close the gaps. At other times bonding, or a white filling material, may be recommended to do the same.
A bridge can be an excellent way to replace a missing tooth. The replacement tooth is permanent fixed to the neighbouring teeth and "bridged" together to close the space. This prevents drifting and movement of your natural teeth. A dental bridge can also be a great alternative for patients who are not candidates for implants, due to insufficient bone quantity or quality. Bridges can be made of a variety of materials, including porcelain and alloys, depending on your needs and preferences.
Dental implants have revolutionized the way we restore missing teeth. A dental implant is a bone friendly titanium post that is placed into the missing tooth socket. The implant then integrates permanently with your own jaw bone. After a few months, you are then able to receive a crown placed directly onto your implant. Implants are an excellent way to restore missing teeth with a natural and aesthetic result.
Dental crowns may be recommended by your dentist to restore fractured, chipped, or worn down teeth. They may also be necessary to prevent weak teeth from splitting/fracturing, especially ones that have received root canal treatment. There are many different options for modern crowns that can look extremely natural and beautiful, ranging from traditional porcelain & metal crowns, to All Ceramic Porcelain and Zirconia crowns. Ask us about your options!
Are you interested in enhancing your smile? Veeners are an excellent option and are one the least invasive ways to dramatically change your smile and provide long lasting results. Veneers are a thin, customized layer of porcelain that are bonded over your front teeth to create an extremely natural and aesthetic smile. Together, you and your dentist will design a smile with beautiful teeth that complements your face shape and size. Ask us how we can help you achieve the smile you always wanted.
Root canal treatment may be recommended by your dentist to save your tooth from an infected, or dying nerve. This may sound scary to some people, but at our office, we make sure that you are completely numb, or frozen before we proceed with any treatment. This results in a painless procedure to remove the infection and save you from losing your tooth. Your dentist may recommend a crown after a root canal procedure to preserve the integrity of the tooth for long term success.
Many people associate professional teeth whitening with movie stars and brides. But in fact, it is an extremely popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry. And at Bay Well Dental Centre, we offer the most current teeth whitening services to achieve immediate results in just one hour of chair time.
Gum grafting is a procedure to develop gum tissue where absent due to excessive gum recession from abrasive brushing techniques or gum disease. Receding gums can cause inflammation, tooth sensitivity and an uneven smile line. Your dentist can use a gum graft to cover the exposed root. This can be done for one tooth or several teeth to even your gum line and reduce sensitivity.
When your teeth are not well aligned and your bite is "off" you can experience a range of problems from crowded, unaesthetic teeth to grinding and TMJ (Temporal Mandibular Joint) pain. Your dentist may recommend orthodontics to align your teeth and improve your bite. Sometimes, orthodontics may be required prior to crown and bridge work to ensure long term stability of the treatment. Modern orthodontics include many options to align your teeth, from the traditional to invisible braces.
