With Facebook and social media, there’s no telling where your smile may end up. That is why we are proud to offer professional tooth whitening services. A whiter, brighter smile can help give you the confidence to say, “Hello, world!” We offer chairside laser teeth whitening, such as Zoom!® and Zoom2, as well as take-home bleaching kits.
Porcelain veneers help to conceal cracks, chips, and gaps in your teeth while also making your teeth appear whiter and brighter. These results are achieved by overlaying ceramic shells to the front of the teeth, giving the impression of a flawless smile.
If you have one or more missing teeth, dental implants can provide the most natural fit, feel, and appearance. Dental implants use a titanium root device that closely mimics your natural root. Next, a prosthetic tooth is placed atop the root. Dental implants aren’t just for looks; they also help restore your natural bite and speech.
Tooth bonding works well in repairing decayed, discoloured, fractured, or chipped teeth. We use a tooth-coloured composite material that is polished and shaped to match your smile.
An attractive alternative to silver amalgam fillings, tooth-coloured composite resins can be used to perfectly complement the shade of your natural teeth.
Porcelain inlays and onlays help transform damaged and cracked teeth to be more attractive and durable. Inlays and onlays also require less tooth reduction than fillings or crowns.
Cedar Valley Dental Centre offers dental crowns! A crown is essentially a cap that covers decayed or damaged teeth. Your crown will be created from a mould of your original tooth, then applied once the decayed portions are removed and the tooth is prepared.
If you are missing a tooth, a dental bridge can be used to “bridge” the gap between two healthy teeth. A dental bridge consists of two crowns and a prosthetic tooth.
For teeth that require more than a cosmetic enhancement, orthodontics can do wonders in fixing uneven, overlapping, and gapped teeth.
