Teeth Whitening

1. Zoom In Office Bleaching : After only 1 hour in the dental chair, you will see a big difference of up to 9 shades lighter in the color of your teeth. We also provide custom made bleaching trays that you take home to further whiten your teeth or to maintain your new smile indefinitely.

2. Custom Made Bleaching Trays: We make you custom fitted bleaching trays and provide you with a gel kit. All you have to do is where the trays for 1 hour at home.  Your teeth will start to whiten and you will see a difference after the first day !


Cosmetic Dentistry

1.  Veneers: In as little as 2 visits, veneers can improve the appearance of your teeth by covering the visible front surface with a tooth colored porcelain overlay fabricated by a dental laboratory.  Veneers are often prescribed to fix: discolored / stained teeth, worn down, chipped, or broken teeth, misaligned, uneven, gapped, or irregularly shaped teeth. With proper hygiene and care, veneers can last well beyond 10 years or more.

2.  Bonding: In only 1 visit, teeth can be bonded to improve their appearance much like veneers. However, instead of covering the teeth with a porcelain overlay fabricated by dental laboratory, the teeth are covered by a resin material that is manipulated and hand sculpted over the tooth. With proper care, bondings can last over 10 years as well.

Both Bonding and Veneers can be used to whiten a person's teeth and to change their appearance. However, Bonding is typically used to treat a smaller amount of teeth at a time and for less drastic changes. Veneers are normally used when there are more teeth involved with more dramatic changes for the patient. Veneers are more durable than bonding because they are made from porcelain. 


Root Canals

A Root Canal is required to save a tooth when decay or trauma infects the pulp or nerve in the middle of the tooth. After a root canal is performed to treat the abscess, a crown is placed to restore and prevent fracture to the tooth.


Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Third Molars, also called wisdom teeth, are the last set of permanent teeth to erupt in a person's mouth, and are the ones least needed for good dental health. They often erupt poorly in the back of the jaw and can cause pain & swelling of the gums or jaw, crowding of other teeth, damage or alteration of the bite, and increased gum disease.


Implant Restorations:

Implants are the most natural way to replace missing teeth. The implant screw is first placed in the jaw bone. After about 2 months, an abutment and crown is placed into the implant, giving the patient back the missing tooth.


Orthodontics:

Dr. To uses Clear Aligner Trays to straighten teeth on adults and teenagers who do not want to wear metal braces. The patient wears the trays for about 12-24 months to straighten their teeth. The trays are made of clear plastic material and can be taken off during eating and for brushing, making for a much more natural,pleasant, and hygienic alternative to traditional braces.
