You and Your Teeth

Family Dentistry

At Metrotower Dental, we take care of your entire family, from one year olds all the way to adults and grandparents.. Our facility is family-friendly, so you are always invited to bring your kids along. Did you know that a child’s first visit to the dentist should be at the age of 1. The American Pediatric Dental Society recommends that all kids should be seen starting at the age of 1. Parents should brush their child’s teeth for them till at least the age of 6.

Our services range from general dentistry, including check-ups, cleaning, and fluoride, to root canals, crowns, and bridges, all the way to cosmetic dental procedures. We also provide advanced dental implant procedures, which are an increasingly popular choice among patients who want a different option from crowns and bridges.

Our friendly staff and office environment is designed to put you and your family at ease, in order to create the most comfortable dental experience for your loved ones. Our goal is to provide high quality preventative dentistry to all our patients, in order to ensure that all of our dental patients are able to maintain optimal oral health.

Dental Implants

If you are a person who has lost a tooth or multiple due to injury, periodontal disease, or tooth decay, and who are otherwise in general good health, you may want to consider dental implants. They act as an artificial tooth root that a dentist can place in your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Since they do not rely on neighboring teeth to support them, dental implants can actually be better for your surrounding teeth than bridgework.

If you are having difficulty chewing, or if your dentures don’t feel secure, you may find dental implants to be a better option. They are one of the most natural feeling options for those who have lost teeth. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth and long-term studies show high success rates for implants; they can even last a lifetime.

Advantages of Dental Implants

The advantages of dental implants are numerous. They can replace one or more teeth without affecting neighboring teeth. They can provide support for a denture or a bridge, making them more secure and comfortable. Over the long-term, they can also help to preserve the height and level of the bone.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Our office offers a wide variety of cosmetic dental procedures to help you achieve your best smile possible. For example, a popular option these days is porcelain veneers. These ultra thin, semi-translucent coverings are permanently bonded to your teeth, and are one of the most aesthetically appealing options for patients looking to improve their smile. A typical patient who would be best suited for porcelain veneers is anyone with spaces between their teeth, broken or chipped teeth, or permanently stained teeth that can’t be bleached.

For those patients with stained teeth who are looking for simple teeth whitening, we offer in-office Zoom whitening, which is the latest in teeth whitening technology. Zoom whitening delivers an average of about 8 shades lighter in about an hour. It is a safe and simple procedure that involves a short isolation process, so most patients find that it fits in nicely with their busy lifestyle.

We also offer a variety of smile design and correction procedures, including enamel recontouring, natural looking crowns and bridges, and bonding procedures. Bonding involves the direct application of tooth coloured composite resin and is typically used to create a more attractive smile.
