General Dentistry

General Dentistry

We strive to give you a positive experience whether you’ve come to us for a simple preventative check-up or a major dental procedure. We offer a wide range of general dental service, which are focused on providing you with personalized dental care to help you maintain your best possible smile. Some of these services are below.


Tooth-colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are also known as composite fillings or white fillings. They are used to restore decayed and damaged teeth, or to reshape disfigured teeth. Composite fillings are an excellent alternative to traditional metal fillings as they are virtually invisible and help you smile naturally. We can easily blend shades to create a color that matches with your natural teeth.

Also, unlike metal fillings, composite fillings actually bond to your natural tooth structure adding to its strength. They will not contract or expand with temperature variations caused by hot or cold foods, thereby decreasing the possibility of fracture in the restored tooth.

Dental Sealants


The chewing surfaces of our back teeth are rough and contain slight indentations called pits, grooves and fissures. These often become a breeding ground for bacteria and food particles leading to tooth decay. A dental sealant is a resin coating that is applied to the back teeth to fill in the rough spots, creating a smoother surface which is more resistant to decay-causing substances. When combined with a proper oral care regimen, sealants are a highly effective way of addressing and hopefully preventing tooth decay, especially in children.

The application of dental sealants is a simple and painless procedure which begins by cleaning the tooth surface. The tooth is then dried and an etching gel is applied to further prepare the tooth so that the sealant can bond properly. The sealant is then applied to the tooth in a thin layer to cover the pits and fissures and dried using a special dental curing light. Once the sealant has cured, we will ensure that the surface has been sealed properly and will evaluate your bite. You can immediately resume your normal eating, drinking and chewing functions after the application of a dental sealant. However, hard, sticky, chewy foods such as taffy and hard candy should be avoided to prevent damage to the sealant.

If properly cared for, sealants are expected to last and protect your teeth for many years. It is recommended that you continue your regular dental visits where the condition of the sealants can be monitored for chipping or wear.

Root Canal

Root Canals

Inside your tooth, beneath the white enamel and a hard layer called dentin, is a soft tissue called pulp. This tissue contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, which help grow the root of your tooth during its development. A fully developed tooth can survive without the pulp because the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it.

Modern treatment is nothing like those old sayings! It’s very similar to a routine filling and can usually be completed in one or two appointments, depending on the condition of your tooth and your personal circumstances. Getting a root canal is relatively painless and extremely effective. You’ll be back to smiling, biting and chewing with ease in no time.
