If your child feels extremely anxious, our dentists can administer laughing gas, which is a harmless gas that allows your child to feel relaxed throughout the procedure. There are no side effects associated to this gas and it is completely safe to use!
Does your chipped tooth make you feel anxious? Do you often find yourself hiding your teeth when you laugh? Do not hold back! Our expert team of dentists will utilize their skills and expertise to give you a complete smile make over.
Whether you have cavities or minor fractures within your teeth, our experienced doctors will repair the damaged areas and use the appropriate fillings to restore your smile. We offer three different types of fillings including white, multi-colored and translucent fillings to enhance your smile.
Getting your tooth removed is quite a stressful endeavour. Though our goal is to try and protect all your teeth as much as possible, however, in certain situations tooth extraction becomes imperative. When the tooth decays completely and if there is severe pain and infection, our doctors may suggest tooth extraction. However, the good news is that the extracted tooth can be replaced so it won’t compromise your appearance and will look perfectly natural! Plus, you will be able to enjoy your food without any discomfort!
When a wisdom tooth erupts, it usually causes immense pain and discomfort. And sometimes they might even affect the alignment of the surrounding teeth. Therefore, in such cases, extraction becomes necessary. The Smile Institute offers a variety of options to induce a calm and relaxed state before the procedure begins. You can choose to be sedated through out the procedure, and our proficient doctors will use their skills and compassion to make sure your experience is as comfortable as possible.
Injuries to the mouth can often lead to a cracked tooth. In fact, something as minor as eating hard nuts or attempting to open a soda bottle with one’s teeth can also lead to the cracking of the tooth. This leads to more damage, as once a portion of the tooth falls out, bacteria can easily take over and cause cavities. In order to save your beautiful smile, you will need a dental crown placed over the damaged tooth. Dental crowns come in a variety of materials, such as metal alloys, stainless steel, ceramic, porcelain-fused to metal, and gold alloys and our team can create all types of dental crowns. Dr. Ambridge will evaluate the area and use her aesthetic training to select the most correct shade of color for the crown, so that it looks exactly like the neighbouring teeth.
The Smile institute then uses the best laboratories to craft your very own personal dental crown from scratch. Our team prefers using the laboratories rather than the CEREC same-day crown machines due to the fact that laboratories have machines and equipment that weigh thousands of pounds, which ensures that there is minimal vibration when your crown is being cut according to the specifications and measurements. This ensures accuracy and precision. CEREC machines are quite lightweight, and so crowns that are produced using this machine may be flawed due to the extreme vibrations. Hence they may not fit perfectly. This ultimately leads to years of discomfort and pain to the patient – and we would never want that!
Happy Patient Story – Crowns, Bridge, Veneers
He said, “I look young again!” ecstatic about the confidence shining through as he smiled, ready to move on with his life after a divorce. He dreamed of a Hollywood smile his whole life, but could never find the time to take care of himself. Damage to his teeth throughout the years from wear and cavities made it difficult for him to chew and left his smile unproportional. We restored his smile and his life with a beautiful new bridge, crowns, and veneers, giving him a fresh start. He was comfortable to face the challenges of his changing life, and that is why we love what we do!
Does your missing tooth make you feel like your smile is flawed? A missing tooth, especially if it is in the front of the mouth, can make you feel embarrassed and have a negative impact on your self-esteem. It can even cause discomfort when eating if the food comes in contact with the soft tissue that is located in the empty area. Fortunately, all your missing tooth dilemmas can be solved with the help of restorative dentistry!
A dental bridge is the perfect solution to your problem! Even if you have huge gaps within your teeth, dental bridges can help you restore your smile. The Smile Institute can create high quality dental bridges for you that will look and feel completely natural. Our expert team makes sure that your bridge sits will with your bone structure, making you forget that you even lost a tooth!
Have you ever felt a severe, throbbing pain in one of your teeth, sending shivers down your spine? That is exactly how you’d describe an infected tooth that requires root canal therapy. When a tooth becomes decayed and infected, your doctor will suggest you to go for root canal therapy to save your tooth. Not tending to the area could lead to further damage and you might even lose your tooth for good. Root canal therapy saves you from the extraction process and provides immediate relief from the pain and swelling.
Patients usually assume that root canal therapies are quite painful, whereas the truth is that the pain actually comes from the damaged nerve tissues. Therefore, it is essential to carry out root canal therapy to eliminate the pain. The Smile Institute uses some of the most innovative dental tools and equipment to minimize the pain and ensure a successful procedure.
Dental injuries can be quite severe and can result in extreme pain and high treatment costs. Thus it is important to adopt a proactive approach when it comes to sports-related activities. An athletic mouthguard is a wonderful tool that helps prevent dental injuries caused by accidents that occur during sports-related activities. It is a small device that sits over your teeth and absorbs any shocks, protecting the mouth from any serious damages.
The Smile Institute can create customized athletic mouthguards that are comfortable, strong and lightweight. Considering the potentially higher costs of replacing or restoring the teeth in case of an injury, an athletic mouthguard is definitely a smart choice! In addition to athletic mouthguards, we offer oral appliances for Bruxism, Sleep apnea, snoring, etc.
