Exams &Checkups

Regular exams are important, not only for the health of your teeth but your whole body. If you are a new patient, we require that you complete a comprehensive exam before beginning treatment.

We’ll take a set of digital x-rays, which help us identify hidden bone structures, tiny cavities, bone loss, and other issues. Besides being more precise, digital x-rays expose you to dramatically less radiation than traditional film-x-rays.

If you’re interested in cosmetic or restorative procedures, we’ll discuss your goals and options for getting your dream smile within your time frame and budget.

Dental Hygiene

The foundation of good oral health is proper dental hygiene that includes regular, professional cleaning and maintenance.

We customize cleanings based on the condition of your teeth, gums, and mouth. Most adults have some degree of gingivitis, an early form of periodontal disease. For them, we sometimes use ultrasonic scalers to remove buildup of calculus, also called tartar. We may also prescribe medicated gels and rinses to reduce the level of decay-causing bacteria in your mouth.

For children or adults at high risk for decay, we may recommend fluoride products such as mouth rinses, dietary supplements, and professionally applied gels and varnishes. Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel, protecting it against decay. This is especially important for children and those who mainly drink bottled water, which doesn’t contain fluoride.

We also use dental sealants, which provide extra protection for the back molars, where most decay occurs in children and teens. As the name suggests, they form a protective surface that “seals off” the chewing surfaces of the teeth. Applying sealants is simple and painless, and one application can last 5 to 10 years.

For our younger patients, dental checkups also include a lesson on proper brushing and flossing techniques. If you have a question about your child’s oral hygiene, or even your own, don’t hesitate to ask.

Digital Xrays

Dentists rely on x-rays for everything from cavity detection to implant placement. At the Greens Dental Surgery, we use advanced digital x-rays, which offer several advantages over traditional, film-based x-rays.

They’re faster and more accurate, providing a clearer picture of your teeth so we can detect smaller cavities than ever before. They also emit 90% less radiation than film x-rays.

And because we store your digital x-rays as computer images, we can easily view and share them with you and your insurance company, as well as other healthcare providers.

Composite Fillings

If you need a new filling or a replacement for an old one, we offer composite restorations that are non-toxic, highly durable, and blend in with the rest of your teeth.

We recommend that all adults with amalgam fillings get them replaced when they are broken, leaking, or failing. We can evaluate if your amalgam fillings are stable or ready for removal. Smaller composite and amalgam fillings are both similarly durable, and we recommend placing composite fillings when smaller cavities are present.

Oral Appliance For Snoring & OSA

Oral appliance therapy for snoring and sleep apnea.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a chronic condition affecting millions of people. It’s characterised by short breathing pauses during sleep, which are caused by a collapsed or narrowed airway. The lack of airflow causes sufferers to wake up suddenly and gasp for breath, which sounds like loud snoring or choking.

These brief interruptions in sleep can, over time, cause chronic sleep deprivation, which can lead to daytime sleepiness, mental confusion, obesity, and even cardiovascular disease.

Standard treatment for OSA is called CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) therapy, which requires patients to sleep with a machine and mask that forces air down the throat. CPAP works, but many patients don’t stick with it. For many of them, an oral appliance provides the relief they need, without the need to sleep with a machine.

These devices are simple and discreet. They’re worn in the mouth, and position the tongue and soft tissue so the airway does not collapse, allowing for free breathing, much less snoring, and a better night’s sleep. They’re also easy to transport, so patients who use a machine at home often get an oral appliance for travel.


Teeth Whitening

A brighter, whiter smile

One of the most popular cosmetic procedures is also one of the simplest. Professional teeth whitening is safe, affordable, and can give you a sparkling smile in as little as two hours.

At the Greens Dental, we offer two options for whitening teeth. Both use a safe, professional-strength bleach that can remove yellowing, discoloration, and superficial stains. With proper care and regular touch-ups, your smile will stay bright for years.


Beautiful, versatile veneers

Want a movie-star smile? Dental veneers transform your teeth in as little as two visits. Crafted from high-strength porcelain, veneers are thin shells that slip over the front surface of the teeth. Permanently bonded into position, they can instantly fix chips, gaps, discoloration or unevenness, with results that look beautifully natural.

Gum Contouring

A fix for uneven or “gummy” smiles

If you have a crooked gum line or have too much gum showing, these imperfections can detract from the beauty of your smile. A “gummy” smile can be inherited, or develop as a side effect of certain medications or health conditions.

Gum contouring can quickly remove excess gum tissue, as well as even up tissue on the gum line. The procedure is fast and relatively painless, as is the healing time.


Implants & Implant Dentures

Missing teeth no longer has to mean missing out. Modern implant dentistry can give you strong, permanent replacement teeth that look and function almost like new.

Unlike conventional bridges and dentures, which rely on adhesive to stay in place, implant restorations are held in place by dental attachments that are secured to one or more implants. They do not slip or move around, and they either snap in place or are attached permanently, depending on the type.

A regular dental implant is essentially a replacement tooth. The crown portion can be brushed and flossed normally, and the color, shape and position make it indistinguishable from natural teeth. Because implants replace the tooth root, they also help prevent bone loss in the jaw, a common side effect of missing teeth.


A full range of crown options

Crowns are used to restore teeth that have been badly broken down. They form the “tooth” portion of a dental implant. They can also be used to replace teeth that are substantially worn or discoloured. A variety of materials are used to create crowns, and each has its advantages. At the Greens Dental, we offer our patients a few options:

One-visit porcelain crowns: Using the innovative E4D system, we can measure, fabricate, and fit a permanent, all-ceramic crown in just one visit. This technology eliminates the need to wear a temporary crown, or to schedule a second visit to have your crown placed.

All ceramic crowns: We use a variety of systems, which employ modern metal-free, tooth-coloured materials to produce crowns that are highly durable and blend beautifully with natural teeth.

Porcelain fused to metal: Another time-tested material, these crowns are strong and wear-resistant, with a pleasing, natural look.

Periodental Options

Periodontal Treatment

Gum disease is one of the major causes of mouth pain and tooth loss, and is extremely common in adults. It’s caused by a buildup of plaque on the teeth, which leads to inflammation that can destroy gum tissue. And this inflammation isn’t just bad for your gums; it can also lead to inflammation elsewhere in the body and contribute to cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, and other serious health problems.

Gum disease is progressive and largely irreversible. But the good news is that treatments exist that can stop the progression of the disease.

At the Greens Dental, we offer perio therapy, which is a supercharged version of a dental cleaning. Using special instruments that penetrate deep into the areas above and below the gum line, perio therapy thoroughly removes all plaque and bacteria, stopping damage and inflammation in its tracks.

Perio therapy can be done in one appointment, but severe cases may require multiple sessions. However, you’ll see the difference immediately. Your teeth will be whiter, your breath will be fresher, and after a short period of sensitivity, your gums and mouth will feel better.

With proper oral hygiene and regular follow-up care, you can avoid further gum damage and associated health risks.
