Dale Avinger WhatClinic User
Reviewed 12 February 2015 "I would highly recommend"
"Everyone at the clinic was excellent! Lorena went "above and beyond" to make sure we were comfortable and understood the treatment needed. The price quote was nearly spot on, with a few upgrades in materials. Dale had 2 bridges, 2 root canals and several crowns done, Dr Benitez is an "artist" when doing the reconstruction and crown build up. The clinic scheduled procedures and lab work to fit our time frame. Dale also had 2 implants and I had one as well. There was very little pain with the procedure and the oral surgeon was amazing! We are VERY pleased with the work and dental care we received there. I have worked at a small U.S. dental office in the past, and I would highly recommend Dr Benitez and his staff."
Dr Alejandro Benitez responded to this review:

Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure having you both as patients. We pride in our work and are very happy to see our patients walk out of here with a smile and a great experience. We look forward to seeing you in the future for your final dental work. Thank you again for choosing us as your dental care provider. Lorena

"I have been here twice and will go back at least every year. If I cancel my lame dental plan with work I save enough to pay the airfare to get here. Luckily my parents winter in South Padre but even if they did not it would still be worth it to come here to go to the dentist. I have had two crowns and five filings (total) and everything went perfectly. My boyfriend has had work done here also with the same results."

Bone Graft

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone in order to repair bone fractures that are extremely complex, pose a significant health risk to the patient, or fail to heal properly. Bone generally has the ability to regenerate completely but requires a very small fracture space or some sort of scaffold to do so. Bone grafts may be autologous (bone harvested from the patient’s own body, often from the iliac crest), allograft (cadaveric bone usually obtained from a bone bank), or synthetic (often made of hydroxyapatite or other naturally occurring and biocompatible substances) with similar mechanical properties to bone. Most bone grafts are expected to be reabsorbed and replaced as the natural bone heals over a few months’ time. The principles involved in successful bone grafts include osteoconduction (guiding the reparative growth of the natural bone), osteoinduction (encouraging undifferentiated cells to become active osteoblasts), and osteogenesis (living bone cells in the graft material contribute to bone remodeling). Osteogenesis only occurs with autografts.

Cosmetic Dentist Consultation

The first meeting with a cosmetic dentist provides a chance to interview and assess her/him before engagement. It also provides an opportunity to discuss with her/him what displeases you about your mouth, teeth and smile. You and the dentist London can establish practical expectations for your treatment. Use the meeting to compile records crucial for developing an accurate and unique treatment plan to achieve your needs.

$50  -  $70
Dental Bonding

Bonding is a composite resin filling placed in the back teeth as well as the front teeth. Composites are the solution for restoring decayed teeth, making cosmetic improvements and even changing the color of your teeth or the reshaping of teeth. Bonding will lighten any stains you may have, close up minor gaps and can be used to correct crooked teeth. Basically, bonding will cover any natural flaws applying a thin coating of a plastic material on the front surface of your teeth. After this, your cosmetic dentist will apply a bonding material and sculpt, color and shape it to provide a pleasing result. A high-intensity light then hardens the plastic, and the surface is finely polished.

$580  -  $600
Dental Bridges

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap – these two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth – and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.

$580  -  $600
3-Unit Bridge

Replacing one single missing tooth with a 3 unit bridge was the most effective tooth replacement treatment prior to dental implants becoming available. This particular type of dental bridge comprises of three prosthetic teeth joined alongside each other in a row, the tooth in the centre bridges the gap with the false teeth on each side being attached over 2 healthy natural teeth.

EverStick™ Bridge

As new technology is introduced into dentistry there are exciting opportunities for clinicians to find ways of applying it. Reinforcing fibres such as everStick have enabled dentists to provide their patients with predictable bonded resin bridges that have minimal biological and fiscal costs with the added advantage of giving patients a wide range of alternative future treatment options. The development of this type of bridges over a number of years has shown that a cantilever design is more predictable, easier to place and facilitates patients flossing their pontics.

$580  -  $600
Metal Bridge

The strength of a metal bridge is a tremendous advantage. Bridges made of metal, can consist of different materials

$580  -  $600
Permanent Bridge

the new permanent bridge will be checked and adjusted, as necessary, to achieve a proper fit.

$580  -  $600
All Porcelain Bridge

A Porcelain Bridge is a dental bridge that is completely made of porcelain. Porcelain is an excellent material, since it is both extremely strong and cosmetic. Also, technological advances continue to improve the durability of porcelain bridges, allowing them to handle higher biting forces.

Temporary Bridge

A temporary bridge can be used for many purposes besides protecting prepared teeth while a permanent dental bridge is being made in a dental laboratory. It can be made from acrylic or dental composite material. Regardless of the material used, it must be highly polished to avoid irritating the gums and possibly causing gum recession. In many case, the restoration can even be used to chew.

Dental Checkup

Regular visits allow your dentist to find early signs of disease. Problems can be treated at a manageable stage. Dental check ups always is free.

New Patient Dental Examination

The first exam appointment is usually made via a phone call from the patient. Although these days, contact can often be made by e-mail, too. Any initial queries that you have can be answered and you can let the dentist know of any problems you have experienced in the past. You should find out in advance how long the appointment is likely to take and how much it will cost you.

Routine Dental Examination

During your routine dental check-up, your dentist may also recommend the proper brushing and flossing techniques if he finds that you are not keen in your oral health. He may also encourage you to use antiseptic mouthwash. He may also make some recommendations like a visit to a Periodontist if he founds out that you have severe or gum disease that is rapidly developing.

$170  -  $400
Dental Crowns

A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth.[1] They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement. Crowns can be made from many materials, which are usually fabricated using indirect methods. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. While inarguably beneficial to dental health, the procedure and materials can be relatively expensive

$170  -  $220
Permanent Crown

A Dental crown that we provide you will be a permanent dental crown that will last many years into the future.

$350  -  $400
Emax Crown

Porcelain crowns, with no metal in them, are beautiful and realistically mimic natural teeth better than any other material.

$180  -  $200
Resin Crown

A resin crown is made of a mixture of microscopic glass-like particles and plastic resin that is cured for strength

$150  -  $170
Stainless Steel Crown

Stainless steel crowns are the treatment of choice for complex cavities or deciduous teeth as they offer better retention and resistance to other restorations, are more durable, have low cost and they are easy to install for the dentist. The main disadvantage of it is that aesthetics are very low.

Temporary Crown

A temporary crown is a provisional, short term restoration used in dentistry. Usually the temporary crown is constructed from a chemical-cure composite, although alternative systems using aluminium crown forms are occasionally used by practitioners. The temporary material is shaped by the dentist to form a tooth shape that protects the prepared tooth, prevents damage to the periodontal tissues (gums) and disguises the prepared tooth to a degree until the final, definitive restoration can be made by a dental technician.

$400  -  $450
Zirconia Crown

Zirconia crowns can look beautiful and very natural. Zirconia is an extra tough ceramic material, and it can be made extra thin. They have no metal in them, and can be made translucent or opaque, depending on the demands of the situation. If they are bonded onto the teeth, and not just cemented with conventional dental cement, they wont show a dark line at the gumline years later, the way porcelain fused to metal crowns do.

$1500  -  $2000
Dental Implants
Dental X-Ray

Dental radiographs, commonly referred to as X-ray films, or informally, X-rays, are pictures of the teeth, bones, and surrounding soft tissues to screen for and help identify problems with the teeth, mouth, and jaw. X-ray pictures can show cavities, cancerous or benign masses, hidden dental structures (such as wisdom teeth), and bone loss that cannot be seen during a visual examination. Dental X-rays may also be done as follow-up after dental treatments.

$40  -  $60
Panoramic Dental X-Ray

The dental panoramic image suffers from important distortions because a vertical zoom and a horizontal zoom both vary differently along the image. The vertical and horizontal zooms are determined by the relative position of the recorded element versus film and generator. Features closer to the generator receive more vertical zoom. The horizontal zoom is also dependent on the relative position of the element to the focal path. Features inside the focal path arch receive more horizontal zoom and are blurred; features outside receive less horizontal zoom and are blurred. The result is an image showing sharply the section along the mandible arch, and blurred elsewhere. For example, the more radio-opaque anatomical region, the cervical vertebrae (neck), shows as a wide and blurred vertical pillar overlapping the front teeth. The path where the anatomical elements are recorded sharply is called "focal path".

Traditional Dental X-Ray

X-radiation (composed of X-rays) is a form of electromagnetic radiation. X-rays have a wavelength in the range of 0.01 to 10 nanometers, corresponding to frequencies in the range 30 petahertz to 30 exahertz (3×1016 Hz to 3×1019 Hz) and energies in the range 100 eV to 100 keV. They are shorter in wavelength than UV rays and longer than gamma rays. In many languages, X-radiation is called Röntgen radiation, after Wilhelm Röntgen, who is usually credited as its discoverer, and who had named it X-radiation to signify an unknown type of radiation

Dentist Consultation
$250  -  $400

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available -- complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.

$250  -  $300
Acrylic Dentures

Acrylic dentures are replacement teeth and gums that are made out of acrylic, a versatile and easily moldable plastic. Dentures made of acrylic are useful when people have lost most or all of their teeth. While so-called partials are made for people who have lost only some of their teeth, dentures are for people who have lost all of their teeth to decay or accident or had them pulled as a result of disease. Dentures also can be made out of materials other than acrylic, including chrome and titanium

$380  -  $400
Chrome Dentures

Dentures can be acrylic or chrome. As the names suggest, the acrylic dentures are made of acrylonitrile, it is used for making plastics, while chrome dentures are made of chromium, which is a metal.

$30  -  $50
Dentures Adjustment

A lot of people dont understand what a denture adjustment is. They think a denture adjustment is another term for a denture reline. These are two different types of procedures. The denture adjustment usually takes place just after you receive your denture or dentures. Later on when a denture adjustment is no longer helpful is when a reline may be needed.

$40  -  $60
Dentures Repair

This is because as you age your mouth changes shape and this causes your denture to have a looser fit – ie the plates will move about more in your mouth as you are talking or chewing food. This means that the plastic is repeatedly flexed where the suction is trying to keep it in your mouth

$30  -  $50
Fixed Partial Dentures

Fixed Partial Denture is a prosthesis that replaces some teeth in a partially dentate arch, and can not be removed from the mouth nor replaced at will. Fixed Partial Denture, also known as FPD, replaces some missing teeth, for health, function and esthetic purposes.

Flexible Partial Dentures

Flexible partial dentures such as those made by Valplast® are custom-fabricated in a dental laboratory. They are prescription-only products that are placed by a licensed dentist after an impression of your mouth has been taken. Most flexible partial dentures involve very simple preparation because your natural teeth dont need to be altered in any way. Flexible partials can be virtually invisible because there are no telltale metal clasps to cover your natural teeth. Furthermore, most flexible materials blend with the tissue in your mouth so that the only thing that shows is your beautiful smile.

$500  -  $1000
Full Dentures

Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as ones natural teeth, todays dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.

$250  -  $300
Immediate Dentures

An immediate denture is what it says. It is placed immediately after the teeth have been extracted. It cannot and will not function or feel like a denture placed over healed oral tissue. It does provide a certain amount of function and esthetics for the patient.

$250  -  $380
Removable Partial Dentures

A removable partial denture (RPD) is for a partially edentulous dental patient who desires to have replacement teeth for functional or aesthetic reasons, and who cannot have a bridge (a fixed partial denture) for any number of reasons, such as a lack of required teeth to serve as support for a bridge (i.e. distal abutments) or due to financial limitations.

Denturist Consultation

Denturists are health care professionals you can trust. There’s a very good reason why so many denture wearers trust and recommend their Denture Clinic, they appreciate the personal and expert attention that a Denturist provides. From initial consultation to laboratory and clinical creation of a denture, Denturists work directly with their patients at every stage of the denture process, creating comfortable smiles and building relationships that patients trust. A regulated health profession since 2002, Denturist services are recognized by leading insurance companies, and Denturists and their Denture Clinics are fully accountable for the dentures they create.

Emergency Dentist Consultation

We can usually see Dental Emergencies for patients without their own dental practice daily subject to availability. This is a private dentistry service.

Endodontist Consultation

At the consultation appointment, the doctor will review the patient’s past dental and medical history. Then he or she will take radiographs or x-rays of any teeth/areas of the mouth involved in the issue. Different x-ray angles are sometimes necessary to reveal potential difficulties such as blocked canals or unusual canal curvatures.

$30  -  $35

If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, your dentist will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other treatment. Sometimes, though, theres too much damage for the tooth to be repaired. This is the most common reason for extracting a tooth.

$60  -  $200
Surgical Extractions

Every tooth extraction is different. Some are simple and some require more extensive procedures. Surgical extraction is required whenever the tooth cannot be removed by simple forcep extraction. Conditions that warrant surgical removal would include cracked teeth, impacted teeth, severely decayed teeth, or any condition that makes the extraction a bit difficult. This type of tooth extraction is routine in our office and is nothing to be afraid of.

$60  -  $130
Wisdom Tooth Extraction

The Wisdom tooth, or Wisdom teeth ( also called Third Molars ) usually do not push through the gums until the late teens or twenties. Wisdom teeth are usually the last teeth to come through the gums.

Family Dentist Consultation

A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. When a dentist gives you a filling, he or she first removes the decayed tooth material, cleans the affected area, and then fills the cleaned out cavity with a filling material.

$25  -  $30
Amalgam Filling
Guaranteed for 2 years.

Amalgam is an alloy containing mercury. The term is commonly used for the amalgam employed as material for dental fillings, which consists of mercury (50%), silver (~22-32% ), tin (~14%), copper (~8%), and other trace metals.[1] In the 1800s, amalgam became the dental restorative material of choice due to its low cost, ease of application, strength, and durability

Glass Ionomer Cement Filling

A Glass Ionomer Cement (GIC) is a dental restorative material used in dentistry for filling teeth and luting cements. These materials are based on the reaction of silicate glass powder and polyalkenoic acid. These tooth-coloured materials were introduced in 1972 for use as restorative materials for anterior teeth (particularly for eroded areas, Class III and V cavities).

$30  -  $35
Porcelain Filling
Guaranteed for 2 years.

Do not confuse porcelain fillings with composite fillings . Both are tooth colored but porcelain fillings are more durable, add strength to the tooth, retain their original color, maintain the height of your bite (this is very important) and almost disappear inside your tooth. You cant see them. Porcelain fillings are heat fired porcelain, ground from a block of porcelain such as Cerec or pressed into shape as with Empress or Sculpture Fibercore.

Resin-Modified Glass Ionomer Cement Filling

A Glass Ionomer Cement (GIC) is a dental restorative material used in dentistry for filling teeth and luting cements. These materials are based on the reaction of silicate glass powder and polyalkenoic acid. These tooth-coloured materials were introduced in 1972 for use as restorative materials for anterior teeth (particularly for eroded areas, Class III and V cavities).

$40  -  $50
Root Filling
Guaranteed for 2 years.

A root filling can be a cost-effective way to treat teeth using damaged pulp and is usually less expensive than extraction and placement of a bridge or an implant. Root treated teeth also have a very high success rate and can last a lifetime.

Temporary Filling

Temporary adhesive restorative materials are an appropriate means for cavities or emergency interim sealing. However, little research is available on the effectiveness of contemporary provisional filling materials. In endodontic treatments an outer adhesive seal can prevent coronal re-infection until the placement of the final restoration.

$30  -  $35
White Filling

Tooth colored white fillings are an attractive alternative to traditional metal fillings. They do not stand out visually like metal fillings, but match your teeth and are virtually undetectable. The material used is known as dental bonding, the same substance used for the procedure called dental bonding. It is a white, durable resin which comes in subtly different shades so Dr. Sands can choose the shade which best matches your natural teeth.

$50  -  $100
Fluoride Therapy

Fluoride therapy is the delivery of fluoride to the teeth topically or systemically in order to prevent tooth decay (dental caries) which results in cavities. Most commonly, fluoride is applied topically to the teeth using gels, varnishes, toothpaste/dentifrices or mouth rinse. Systemic delivery involves fluoride supplementation using water, salt, tablets or drops which are swallowed. Tablets or drops are rarely used where public water supplies are fluoridated.

General anesthesia for dental treatments

Generalanaesthesia (or generalanesthesia) is a state of  and loss of protective reflexesresulting from the administration of one or more  agents. A variety of may be administered, with the overallaim of ensuring , ,,relaxation of , and loss of control of  of the . The optimal combination of these agents for anygiven patient and procedure is typically selected by an  or another provider such as ananaesthesiologist assistant or , in consultation with the patient and the medicalor  performing the operative procedure.

Gingivitis Treatment

Gingivitis ("inflammation of the gum tissue") is a term used to describe non-destructive periodontal disease.[1] The most common form of gingivitis is in response to bacterial biofilms (also called plaque) adherent to tooth surfaces, termed plaque-induced gingivitis, and is the most common form of periodontal disease. In the absence of treatment, gingivitis may progress to periodontitis, which is a destructive form of periodontal disease

$150  -  $250
Gingival Flap Surgery

Gingival flap surgery is a type of gum procedure. The gums are separated from the teeth and folded back temporarily. This allows a dentist to reach the root of the tooth and the bone.

Implant Dentist Consultation

Dental implant consultations are a critical part of the process of placing dental implants in any patient. Dr. Lokhandwala will evaluate the condition of the gums and jaw bone before recommending placement of the dental implant. In order to do this intraoral and panoramic x-rays will be taken. StarBrite Dental uses digital panoramic imaging and so all this can be done in one sitting in our offices. Depending on various factors and the amount of diagnostic work required, this "consultation/records visit" may be charged. If the patient has dental insurance a significant (if not all) portion of this dental implant initial visit is covered.

$150  -  $200
Composite Resin Inlay or Onlay
Guaranteed for 5 years.

The present study measured the diametral compressive strength, flexural strength, and modulus of elasticity of compositeresins used in inlay/onlay systems. The effect of additional curing also was determined. SR-Isosit material had the highest diametral compressive strength, and SR-Isosit-Dentin material had the lowest flexural strength. The SR-Isosit compositeresins had lowest elastic modulus and Estilux posterior C VS resin the highest. A negative correlation was found between diametral compressive strength and elastic modulus of the materials. It was concluded that the additional curing of Brilliant resin did not result in improved mechanical properties. For Estilux resin, additional curing increased flexural strength and modulus of elasticity.

$250  -  $300
Gold Inlay or Onlay
Guaranteed for 5 years.

It is the most ideal solution among the conservative treatments since this is a kind of filling the shape of which can be formed with the most aesthetic result. This is the only type of filling that improves with time. The reason is that the golden filling strikes against the tooth when chewing, more precisely, the filling border adheres closely to the tooth without leaving any space, thus preventing later decay

$150  -  $200
Porcelain Inlay or Onlay
Guaranteed for 5 years.

Dental inlays and onlays are solid fillings used to restore damaged or decayed teeth. They restore beauty, strength and function of the tooth. Inlays and onlays are often needed when there is not enough healthy tissue left in the tooth to support a regular filling. (If a tooth is severely damaged, a crown may be necessary to cover the entire surface instead of an inlay or onlay.) Unlike regular fillings, they strengthen rather than weaken teeth. Inlays lie within the cusps, or bumps, on the surface of a tooth, while onlays cover one or more cusps. They are often placed over two visits: one in which the tooth is prepared, a temporary filling is placed and an impression is made, and one in which the specially constructed inlay or onlay is cemented onto the tooth. Inlays and onlays made of composite resin or porcelain are tooth-colored, while those made of gold alloy offer increased strength and durability.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon Consultation

Oral-Maxillofacial Surgery is a surgical specialty which involves the diagnosis, surgery and adjunctive treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region

Pediatric Dentist Consultation

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a dental consultation shortly after the eruption of the first primary tooth. Prevention is the key! By educating parents we can help them stamp out dental caries through nutritional and good oral habits

Periodontist Consultation

Periodontal treatment can play a crucial role in prolonging the life of your teeth, as periodontal disease often results in loss of teeth due to mobility from bone resorption. There is also an established link between periodontal disease and cardiac disease. Periodontal disease is diagnosed initially by your general dentist. Regular scaling and polish may often be all that’s required to treat gum disease, and maintain a stable periodontal condition.

Periodontitis Treatment

There are several ways to treat periodontitis, depending on its severity. The goal of periodontitis treatment is to thoroughly clean the pockets of bacteria and to prevent more damage. Treatment may be performed by a periodontist, a dentist or a dental hygienist. Treatment is most successful when you adopt a daily routine of good oral care.

$100  -  $150

A pulpotomy is when the inflamed pulp chamber, usually on a baby molar, is removed, the area is sterilized, and the chamber is sealed. It is sometimes called a baby tooth root canal, but its not really a root canal and it can be done is some cases in permanent teeth. It is a very common procedure in children and has a reasonably good prognosis of success. Its also fairly easy to do in conjunction with associated procedures.

Restorative Dentist Consultation

Restorative dentistry is the process of replacing natural teeth that have been damaged, decayed, or lost over time. Some treatment options that will be discussed may be fixed or cemented onto the teeth, while others represent a removable appliance or partial denture. Once your cosmetic dentist has examined your teeth and evaluated your goals, he will provide a diagnosis and discuss your treatment options.

$150  -  $180
Root canals

A root canal is the space within the root of a tooth. It is part of a naturally occurring space within a tooth that consists of the pulp chamber (within the coronal part of the tooth), the main canal(s), and more intricate anatomical branches that may connect the root canals to each other or to the surface of the root.

From $150
Incisor Root Canal

The root canal anatomy of mandibular incisors can present a number of variations, including multiple canals.

$200  -  $250
Molar Root Canal

The space inside the tooth from the center, known as the pulp chamber, that travels down the length of the root to the tip (or apex) is called a "canal," or more specifically, a root canal. Human teeth may have one to four root canals, depending on the anatomy of the tooth. Molars, may have 2 to 4 canals, premolars may have 1 to 2 canals, cuspids may have 1 to 2 canals, and finally incisors generally have 1 canal. Extra canals may branch out from the main canal, called "accessory canals." The number of canals and the anatomy can vary among teeth.

From $150
Premolar Root Canal

The premolars may have superimposed roots that give the appearance of a single canal when 2 are actually present.

Root End Surgery

A root end surgery, also known as apicoectomy (L. apex, apicis: a summit or a tip), is an endodontic surgical procedure whereby a tooths root tip is removed and a root end cavity is prepared and filled with a biocompatible material.

$150  -  $180
Single Visit Root Canal

A root canal is the space within the root of a tooth. It is part of a naturally occurring space within a tooth that consists of the pulp chamber (within the coronal part of the tooth), the main canal(s), and more intricate anatomical branches that may connect the root canals to each other or to the surface of the root.

Sedation for dental treatments

Sedation dentistry is used to provide a relaxing and anxiety-free experience for certain people receiving dental treatment. It enables individuals too afraid to go to the dentist to receive the dental care they need while avoiding the common apprehension known as dental phobia.

$25  -  $40
Teeth Cleaning

Teeth cleaning is part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities (dental caries), gingivitis, and periodontal disease. People routinely clean their own teeth by brushing and interdental cleaning, and dental hygienists can remove hardened deposits not removed by routine cleaning. Those with dentures and natural teeth may supplement their cleaning with a denture cleaner.

$40  -  $80
Scaling and Root Planing

The objective of scaling and root planing, otherwise known as conventional periodontal therapy, non-surgical periodontal therapy or deep cleaning, is to remove or eliminate the etiologic agents which cause inflammation: dental plaque, its products and calculus,[1] thus helping to establish a periodontium that is free of disease.

Ultrasonic Scaling
Ultrasonic scaling removes calculus and reduces the number of harmful bacteria below the gum line. It is an important tool in the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease.
Teeth Contouring and Reshaping

Is there a small defect in your smile that always draws your eye in the mirror? A chip in a front tooth, some worn edges, or shallow pits or grooves in the tooth enamel are all minor issues, but they do stand in the way of having a perfect smile. If you suffer from one or more of these problems -- even to the extent of a minor fracture or overlap... they all can be fixed using a procedure known as tooth contouring and reshaping.

In dentistry, a veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth, or to protect a damaged tooth surface. There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer, composite and dental porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a resin cement such as Panavia. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated.

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are used to improve the colour, shape, size and texture of teeth to make them more attractive. They can be used to fix minor chips and cracks in teeth. They are different from porcelain veneers in that they require little if any tooth reduction (drilling) and the treatment can be completed in a single visit. However unlike porcelain veneers, composite veneers can be prone to staining and may not last as long. To create composite veneers, composite material is applied to the front surfaces of the teeth and sculpted to the desired shape and finish under the hands of an experienced cosmetic dentist.

Porcelain Veneers
Guaranteed for 5 years.

Porcelain dental veneers are a beautiful way to correct stained, chipped, or crooked teeth. By placing a customized shell over the surface of the tooth, dentists can provide patients with bright, aligned, and natural looking smiles. Dental flaws that may have been a source of embarrassment or discomfort for years can be corrected in as little as one or two appointments.
