General Dentistry Procedures:

Preventative Care (Hygiene)

In office teeth cleaning and oral hygiene instruction. Regular dental hygiene appointments are vital not only to your oral health but also to your general overall health. Poor oral hygiene can lead to both dental and medical problems such as bone loss, gum disease, infection, heart disease and oral cancer just to name a few. Your assurance of overall health involves a collaborative approach involving patient and oral health professionals.

VELscope Exam (Oral Cancer Screening)

VELscope is the most powerful tool available for assisting in the discovering of oral abnormalities. The VELscopeā€™s blue light simulates natural fluorescence in the soft tissues of your mouth and allow dental professionals to see disease not visible with the naked eye. The VELscope exam is quick, painless, and effective. It helps us:

  • Improve our assessment of your overall oral health.
  • Ensure that the delicate tissues of your mouth are healthy.
  • Protect you from oral diseases, including oral cancer.

Composite (tooth coloured) Fillings

Used to repair or replace part of the natural tooth structure lost to decay, fracture or discolouration. Composites are durable resin based materials (plastic like) that are available in a variety of shades to match your original tooth colour. Composite fillings bond directly to the tooth structure therefore reduction or removal of healthy tooth structure is kept to a minimum.

Amalgam (silver) Fillings

Used to repair or replace part of the natural tooth structure lost to decay, fracture or discolouration. Amalgam fillings are durable and are an affordable alternative to tooth coloured fillings.

Crowns

Used to repair and strengthen an existing tooth with a large filling. A crown is a permanent covering that fits over the original tooth. Crowns are made from a variety of materials including: gold, silver, porcelain or acrylic resin. Crowns can also help to improve the appearance of your smile by reshaping, realigning or whitening your teeth.

Bridges

Similar to crowns in function and esthetics but also replace one or more missing teeth. A bridge allows for more chewing ability by filling in the gap caused by missing teeth.

Extractions

Removal of diseased or otherwise compromised teeth. Our goal in dentistry is to limit the necessity of extractions but sometimes it is necessary to remove a tooth or teeth in order to restore oral health.

Root Canals

Used to remove a tooth's injured or infected internal tissue. Once decay reaches the pulp (inner part of tooth containing nerve) the only option to save the tooth is to recommend a root canal procedure. The procedure involves the removal of the infected tissue and the filling of the area with a suitable filling material.

Gold Inlays and Onlays

Used to repair or replace parts of the natural tooth structure lost to decay, fracture or discolouration. Inlays and onlays provide strength like a crown but they do not cover the entire tooth. This type of restoration can be an alternative to composite and amalgam fillings.

Partial & Complete Dentures

Used to replace areas of the mouth where there are missing teeth. Both partial (replacing some missing teeth) and complete (replacing all teeth) dentures provide function (chewing and speaking abilities) and provide a natural looking appearance to your smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures:

SPA-DENT (Teeth Whitening System)

Gradual darkening of tooth structure occurs over time. Several factors can contribute to tooth discolouration. The aging process, certain foods / beverages (blueberries, soya sauce, coffee, tea), and some lifestyle habits such as smoking can have a significant impact on the brightness of your smile. There are a variety of tooth whitening methods that can improve the look of your smile. Some methods involve an at home treatment and others are performed in the dentist's chair and offer you more immediate results.

SPA-DENT is a clinically developed whitening process that provides the maximum whitening benefit, in the least amount of time with virtually no sensitivity, all under the supervision of your Dental Professional.

Smile Makeovers

In most cases a combination of dental procedures is required in order to achieve a healthy functional brilliant smile. Veneers, composite bonding, crowns, bridges, tooth whitening can all contribute to your smile transformation. Dr. Baharloo would be happy to discuss with you the options available to suit your particular needs. Each patient receives individualized treatment options based on Dr. Baharloo's professional recommendations and your input as a patient.

Veneers

Severe stains and chips or uneven dentition can benefit from veneers. They are strong porcelain or acrylic shells that are layered over the front surfaces of natural teeth to improve their appearance.

BOTOX®

BOTOX CosmeticĀ® is an approved, safe prescription drug which is used to reduce or minimize facial wrinkles in the area(s) it is applied. The treatment involves very tiny injections into the muscles under the skin in order to temporarily relax the muscles. This will prevent the muscles from fully contracting, and thus will minimize the creasing / folding / wrinkling of the skin in the treated area. The treatment is temporary and not permanent.
