Here at Georgian Dental, we believe there is no better time than now to improve your dental health and restore your smile to start the year off with some positivity.
Join us now as we take a look at the wide range of restorative dental procedures that are available to you to improve your smile and strengthen your dental health.
Dental Hygiene & Preventive Oral Care
If you’ve been putting off your usual cycle of dental checkups, hygiene treatments, and preventive care because of the situation surrounding COVID-19, we want to take the time to assure you that you and your family can safely obtain these services at Georgian Dental. We have put in place extensive safety measures and protective protocols to provide the most secure and controlled environment for our patients and our staff.
In addition to comprehensive cleaning and sanitization procedures throughout the clinic and equipping our staff with all the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE), we have expanded our health and safety measures to meet and exceed all recommendations put forth by Health Canada and other health authorities. For more information related to the various safety measures and protections at Georgian Dental, we encourage you to review our COVID-19 Dental Clinic Safety reference.
Whether you’re in need of a simple tooth cleaning, or perhaps need a fluoride treatment, sealants, or other type of preventive dental care, there’s no need to delay in getting the attention your mouth needs. Start off 2021 with a quick dental checkup and cleaning to make your teeth feel clean, fresh, and healthy.
Holistic Dentistry Approach
Georgian Dental feels it’s important to consider dental health as a critical part of your overall health. Our approach uses advanced dental care techniques, modern materials, and looks at the big picture to determine the best combination of dental treatments and for best results.
What you’ll find is that by improving dental health, you’ll also see your general health improve. And when you incorporate more healthy lifestyle habits, your dental health will also see improvements. It’s this synergy between oral and overall health that brings you the true benefits of holistic dentistry.
Cosmetic Dental Treatments
If your teeth are in good overall health, but are not exactly how you’d like them to be in appearance, you may want to consider some cosmetic dentistry treatments to give them the visible style you want.
It’s quite common for our teeth to gradually lose their bright white hue over time due to a wide variety of factors. Certain types of foods and drink, such as coffee and wine, as well as irregular dental hygiene habits, can eventually result in staining or discoloration of the teeth. If left unchecked, these effects can continue to build over time, and become more and more noticeable.
If your teeth have started to look a little bit discolored, yellowed, or mottled in their appearance, you may want to get a dental whitening treatment to restore their natural bright white shade. This simple cosmetic dental procedure can remove stains from your teeth and reveal a more consistent, bright white shade in your smile.
For a more dramatic enhancement, or in cases where there are more significant visual anomalies on your teeth, dental veneers may be recommended. Veneers are thin shells made from tough dental porcelain material that are applied to the outer surfaces of your teeth to cover up imperfections, discoloration, and other visible damage. With dental veneers, you are left with a smile complete with picture-perfect teeth.
Dental bonding treatments can be used to address physical or structural anomalies in your teeth, such as a chipped tooth or worn teeth. Bonding works by filling cracks in teeth and replacing lost tooth material from chips with a durable dental compound that is hardened and precisely shaped to mimic the natural curves and look of your teeth.
Dental crowns are used to address damage to the top surfaces of teeth resulting from decay, grinding, or excessive wear. A custom-shaped cap for your tooth, known as a crown, is applied with a permanent dental adhesive to the affected tooth, thereby restoring it’s full function and giving it a natural look to match the rest of your teeth.
Braces & Invisalign Orthodontics
If you have one or more teeth that are misaligned, crooked, or has shifted in position over time, then orthodontic treatment can be used to bring them back into the optimum position. Georgian Dental offers a complete range of orthodontic braces options, including traditional metal braces, ‘fast braces’ for shorter treatment times, the Invisalign clear braces system, and more.
Although we colloquially call them ‘traditional metal braces’, the technology in modern braces is far better than the orthodontic appliances of the past. Modern metal braces use advanced materials, wires and brackets for enhanced comfort throughout the treatment period.
Ceramic braces offer enhanced aesthetics with tooth-colored or transparent brackets, making them much more visually subtle for the duration of your orthodontic treatment. For even faster results, Fast Braces combine metal braces with additional treatments such as ultrasonic or laser therapy to accelerate the movement of the teeth and provide the shortest possible treatment timelines.
Invisalign braces rapidly have become the most in-demand orthodontic treatment option thanks to its unique design which provides unparalleled levels of comfort, convenience, and aesthetic appeal. By using a series of progressive clear plastic aligners, the Invisalign system gradually shifts the position of teeth just like regular braces but provides the added advantage of being nearly invisible while being worn. In addition, Invisalign aligners can be removed at any time for enhanced comfort and convenience while eating, drinking, and for brushing and flossing, and then put back in place by the wearer at any time.
Whether it’s a single tooth that just doesn’t look right, or multiple teeth that are out of alignment, Georgian Dental will guide you to the best orthodontic treatment option to meet your goals and provide the results you are looking for in 2021.
Dental Implants & All-on-4 Mouth Restoration
In the event that you’ve experienced the loss of a tooth, possibly due to a previous accidental impact or other dental health problem, then a dental implant may be needed to help restore the full function of your mouth and prevent future complications from developing. Dental implants are a common procedure, and the team at Georgian Dental is here to help you restore your smile with a permanent tooth replacement.
For patients with multiple lost teeth or advanced stages of tooth decay, a more comprehensive mouth restoration procedure might be recommended to you as the wisest course of action. With the All-on-4 system, you will regain full mouth function with a permanent tooth replacement that looks completely natural.
The All-on-4 dental implant system offers many benefits and advantages over traditional dentures as a solution for the problem of tooth loss. This advanced procedure uses four strategically placed dental implants on the bottom jaw, and four on the top jaw and a complete set of natural-looking replacement teeth. This system features a unique connection system between the implants and the full-bridge replacement teeth that is far more secure than normal denture adhesives, and superior in comfort.
If you or someone you love has been living with reduced mouth function due to lost teeth, we have the solutions to help you regain the quality of life that you’ve been missing. For one lost tooth, or several, there’s no need to wait any more to get your smile restored and back in the shape you have been wanting for so long.
