Patient FAQ

What is the best type of crown?

Every case is treated individually. The material and restoration type will depend on many different factors, including aesthetics, strength and colour. Ask your dentist for different crown options; they understand your needs and dental history.

What Happens in a Custom Shade Appointment?

During the 5-10 minute appointment, we use the shading guides to customize the shade for your replacement crown, or bridge restoration. We’ll take several photos and ask a series of questions to ensure that we provide the appropriate restoration and aesthetics for your needs. Your smile is one of your most important assets, so we take great pride in ensuring your appearance is just the way you want it to look – beautiful and natural.

Why Implants?

There are many solutions and procedures for replacing and restoring damaged, or missing teeth. Increasingly, dental professionals are suggesting that their patients consider restorative dental implants. Dental implants provide a range of benefits which are worthy of consideration. From the standpoint of looking and performing like natural teeth, dental implants can often mean the difference to a lifetime of less maintenance, repair work, and dental costs. If you are a good candidate for dental implants (one tooth, or more), your dentist will be able to discuss this particular option with you, including the relatively straightforward procedures involved.

You may find this is one lifestyle investment that provides a number of positive returns.
