"I am very fortunate to be working in a profession in which I take great pride. I face each day with excitement and new challenges. Your smile is one of your most important assets. Let me give you a beautiful healthy smile!"

I feel that it is very important to continually enhance my knowledge of cosmetic, orthodontic (Invisalign), implant and general dentistry. I further believe that it is critical to be informed about the most current and up-to-date techniques and materials. This is why I have completed hundreds and hundreds of hours of continuing education. I have been fortunate to be able to attend some of the most leading edge conferences and seminars world-wide”.

“Being a part of the dental community has been both exciting and fulīŦlling. I, however, have always wanted to be able to share my knowledge with both my fellow colleagues and the people of my community. I try to accomplish this continuously by being a guest speaker, writing articles and newsletters and appearing on Radio and T.V. Now we are beginning to host our very own YouTube Channel, and we are also embracing social media such as FaceBook, Twitter and LinkedIn to keep our existing and new patients up-to-date."

Rapid Teeth Whitening

The Rapid Teeth Whitening is our most popular procedure.  Rapid Teeth Whitening is the most time-efficient way to get your teeth whiter.  A high concentration of bleaching solution is applied to your teeth for 15,30,45 or 60 minutes.  A blue light/heat is used in the activation process.  Years of clinical use has seen the teeth whiten 2 to 10+ shades in 1 session with the greatest increase seen with the increased time the bleaching solution is in contact with the teeth (45 & 60 minute sessions).
As you relax in the chair during the chair-side procedure, you will be able to watch TV listen to music or nap.  A bleaching solution containing a high concentration of Hydrogen Peroxide is applied to the teeth.  The solution penetrates to the deeper layer of the tooth.  Here, the hydrogen peroxide is broken down to oxygen that acts on the stained organic deposits changing them to a whitish colour.  This process brightens the tooth colour but leaves the tooth structure unchanged- much like bleach acts on clothes.  
Almost everyone can benefit from the Rapid Teeth Whitening.  Teeth Whitening is ideal for people who have healthy teeth and would like a whiter, brighter smile.  This includes teenagers and adults with their permanent teeth.  In particular, teeth that have been stained by consumption of staining foods ( tomato sauces, fruits such as berries and grapes, ), staining drinks (coffee, tea, red wine, colas) or teeth that have just discoloured over time with ageing respond well to the teeth whitening process.  Smokers can also whiten and brighten the colour of their teeth.  Even people that have mild tetracycline/minocycline staining (gray staining from medication) can have brighter teeth with extended chair-side time or more frequent visits for treatment.  Teenagers that have completed orthodontic treatment and have their braces off can whiten the colour of their natural teeth.  The best results will be achieved with teeth that have yellowed with age or are stained by coffee, tea, red wine, smoke etc.  
Many scientific studies show that people with whiter teeth look and feel younger.  These people also feel more confident.  The quickest way to improve ones smile is through the Rapid Teeth Whitening.  People who have whitened their teeth have a greater interest in keeping their smile healthy and bright.  They also spend more time with oral hygiene care, they have healthier gums and teeth and have fresher breath.

Dentures

Are you missing teeth?
Do you have “black holes” in your smile?
Do you have difficulty chewing?
We can easily create a beautiful healthy smile just for you.
For almost as long as there have been missing teeth, there have been dentures.

Today’s state-of-the-art dentures:

  • Are more esthetically pleasing
  • Use more natural looking teeth and gums
  • Can conceal the metal clasps in new and existing partial dentures

Esthetic partial dentures are:

  • Used to replace missing teeth
  • Used to restore the patient’s bite
  • Completed over a period of several appointments

Esthetic partial dentures differ from regular partial dentures in that:

  • There are no metal clasps or wires
  • They are thin, durable, lightweight and flexible
  • They offer a much tighter, more comfortable fit
  • They are esthetically superior by providing a more natural-looking smile

Invisalign

One of the primary concerns people often have about dental braces is the aesthetic impact of the metalwork on their smile.  Especially for adults, the prospect of wearing unattractive metal braces for long periods of time can be very discouraging.  Invisalign® offers an almost invisible aligning system that straightens teeth fast.
Invisalign® treatment consists of a series of custom-made aligning trays called "Aligners".  The aligners are usually changed every 2 weeks to help continue the planned tooth movement.  In addition to the reduced visual impact, Invisalign® aligners can be temporarily removed for important occasions – meaning that treatment duration is patient-controlled.  A great number of people report complete satisfaction with both the Invisalign® treatment and the stunning results.
Invisalign® corrects the same dental problems as traditional metal braces; the only difference is that Invisalign® trays are almost invisible to the naked eye, and can be removed at will.
Here are some problems that are commonly corrected with Invisalign®:
  • Overcrowding – This occurs when there is too little space for the teeth to align normally in the mouth.  Overcrowding can cause tooth decay and increase the likelihood of gum disease.
  • Large gaps between teeth – This can sometimes occur because teeth are missing or because the jaw continues to grow abnormally.
  • Crossbite – This common dental problem occurs when one or multiple upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth.  As a consequence, uneven wear can lead to bone erosion and gum disease.
  • Overbite – This problem occurs when the upper teeth project further than, or completely cover, the lower teeth.  Eventually, jaw pain and TMJ may occur.
  • Underbite – This is the inverse of the overbite; the lower teeth project further than, or completely cover, the upper teeth.  Eventually, jaw pain and TMJ can occur.
