Making the world brighter, one smile at a time

The prospect of visiting the dentist can be intimidating for some, but it doesn't have to be. At the Dental Smile Clinic, we take away the stress that comes with dental care. Our dentists are considerate and gentle. Many of our long-term patients who used to be nervous about going to the dentist are now feeling more relaxed and at ease.

Dental crowns

A crown (sometimes called a ‘cap’) is a tooth-like covering that is placed over a carefully prepared existing tooth. Used to strengthen, restore or improve the appearance of your natural tooth, a crown is placed on an individual tooth much like a thimble is placed over an individual finger.

Crowns serve many functions in addition to being used to strengthen a tooth. They are also used to accommodate the attachment of a fixed bridge. One of the most common uses for a crown is to support the tooth when there is no longer sufficient tooth structure left to place a filling. Crowns may also be used to protect the structure of a tooth that is fractured or broken.

Dental bridges

A bridge is a custom device anchored to neighbouring teeth which replaces one or more missing teeth. When a lost tooth is replaced with bridgework, the teeth on either side of the missing one must be prepared as crowns. This is so they can serve as abutments that hold the prosthetic (replacement) teeth in place.

Both appearance and function are considered when selecting the material most suitable for you. We will make every effort to ensure your comfort during and after crown and bridge treatment. Our goal is to help you preserve your smile for a lifetime.

General family care

The key to maintaining healthy teeth and gums is regular check-ups and cleanings at the dentist. At our clinic, we make preventative care a priority. Our 6-month maintenance schedule includes regular examination, scale and clean, fluoride treatment and advice on diet and oral hygiene instructions.

Dental implants

If you are looking for a great way to improve your smile, consider getting dental implants. With titanium tooth roots, we offer replacement teeth that look, feel and function just like natural teeth. Dental implants can be your doorway to renewed self-confidence and peace of mind.

Dental implants fuse with the jawbone to form a secure foundation for tooth replacement. This concept for oral rehabilitation was developed more than thirty-five years ago by a Swedish scientist and orthopaedic surgeon, Professor Per-Ingvar Branemark. With his pioneering research, Professor Branemark opened the door to a lifetime of renewed comfort and self-confidence for millions of individuals facing the frustration and embarrassment of tooth loss.

Benefits of crowns & bridges

Losing a permanent tooth, whether due to dental decay, periodontal (gum) disease, injury or accident, can cause many serious problems for your neighbouring teeth. Because the support and chewing forces are altered, the remaining teeth may begin to shift. The opposing tooth above or below the lost tooth can begin to move up, down or out of the socket, which can accelerate periodontal disease and further break down the bone structure.

If the missing tooth is not replaced, more teeth may eventually be lost due to the improper forces exerted during chewing.

Crown and bridge treatments reverse the negative impact of missing teeth in a variety of ways.

  • Restores & maintains the natural bite
  • Prevents unnatural stress on other teeth
  • Keeps opposing teeth in their proper place
  • Prevents tilting and shifting of the adjacent teeth
  • Discourages further dental decay & periodontal disease
  • Enhances your smile, speech & chewing function
