It enables us to provide a conservative approach to your dental needs but most importantly keep you comfortable throughout your dental procedure.

Crown and Bridges (caps)

A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) dental restoration that consists of one or more prosthetic teeth that bridge the gap created by missing teeth. There are several types of fixed dental bridges, including traditional fixed bridges, cantilever bridges and resin-bonded bridges. The porcelain fixed bridge is the most commonly used and best resembles the look and feel of your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of an artificial tooth (or teeth) fused between 2 crowns that go over the anchoring teeth on either side of the gap.

Dental bridges are highly durable and can enhance your smile for many years. Your dentist or dental hygienist may recommend dental bridges for the following reasons:

  • Fill space of missing teeth.
  • Maintain facial shape.
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
  • Restore chewing and speaking ability.
  • Restore your smile.
  • Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance

Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are a tooth-coloured restorative material used to repair a damaged or decayed tooth. The affected portion of the tooth is removed and then filled with the composite filling. It is then cured with a visible blue light which causes it to harden almost instantly.

Composite resin dental fillings are strong, durable, and make for a very natural looking smile. Your dentist or dental hygienist may recommend composite resin dental fillings for the following reasons:

  • To restore chipped or worn teeth.
  • To close a space between two teeth.
  • To repair cracked or broken teeth.
  • To repair damage caused by tooth decay

Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that are attached to the front surfaces of teeth for an immediate smile transformation. Individually crafted for each patient, these cosmetic enhancements are made from advanced material that closely resembles the appearance of natural dental enamel. Dentists can use veneers for an impressive number of cosmetic corrections, ranging from teeth whitening to orthodontic adjustments. Thanks to their lifelike appearance and wide array of functions, porcelain veneers rank among the most trusted and popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry.

Candidates

Patients who are considering porcelain veneers are typically looking to address multiple structural or cosmetic issues with their teeth, such as:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Minor misalignment
  • Discoloration
  • In order to have porcelain veneers placed, patients should:
  • Have good periodontal and overall oral health
  • Be committed to proper oral care and hygiene
  • Have specific cosmetic goals, which they can articulate to their dentists at their initial consultations, as well as realistic expectations
  • Have a sufficient amount of healthy enamel, as dentists usually remove a thin layer of enamel before placing veneers

Signs That Veneers May Not Be the Right Choice

As stated above, patients must have healthy teeth and gums to qualify for dental veneers. Patients with conditions such as tooth decay, gum disease, and root canal infection typically do not qualify for veneers. However, after a dentist successfully treats these issues, patients are usually cleared for cosmetic enhancement. Those who are considering porcelain veneers should remember that the procedure is typically a permanent one. Because the dentist usually removes a layer of enamel before attaching the porcelain, patients will eventually need to replace their veneers or choose an alternative restoration to take their place. Therefore, no one should receive veneers unless they are certain about their decision. Some patients who habitually grind their teeth and clinch their jaw may be disqualified from receiving veneers. Although dental porcelain is quite strong and durable, the forces of bruxism can put incredible strain on veneers, causing them to break or come off entirely. In many cases, however, a dentist may be able to treat the underlying causes of bruxism, eventually enabling patients to receive veneers. Additionally, newly developed dental materials allow ceramists to create stronger restorations that may be suitable for such patients.

Determining Candidacy

The only way a patient can fully determine his or her candidacy for veneers is by scheduling an appointment with a skilled cosmetic dentist. After evaluating health history, current dental health, and the condition of a patient’s enamel, a dentist can make an informed decision regarding a patient’s suitability for this treatment. He or she can also recommend alternative treatments for non-qualifying patients.

Invisalign

Now it may be possible to straighten your teeth using a series of custom-made aligners by Invisalign. Whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart, or have shifted requiring realignment, we may be able to correct it using Invisalign Aligners.

We are a Certified Invisalign Provider

Consider Invisalign treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted without braces. A complimentary consultation with our doctor can determine if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.

  • What is it?
  • Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to administer Invisalign treatment.
  • Why would I want it?
  • Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
  • How does it work?
  • You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

TMD/ TMJ Therapy

You need the muscles and joints in your jaw. Without joints and muscles, you wouldn’t be able to chew, swallow, talk, or yawn. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the flexible joint in your jaw that acts as a hinge whenever you open your mouth.

Although temporomandibular disorder is painful and uncomfortable, our dentists at Paramount Dentistry offer TMD/TMJ therapy to ease the pain and restore the function of your jaw joint.

Symptoms of TMD

The common symptoms of TMD range from mildly sensitive to severely painful. Make an appointment with one of our dentists if you experience any combination of symptoms:

  • Headaches, toothaches, earaches, neck aches
  • Swelling around jaw
  • Limited ability to open mouth
  • Tenderness in face, jaw, neck
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Clicking, popping, grating sounds when opening mouth
  • Dizziness
  • Ringing in ears
  • Hearing problems
  • Tired facial muscles

Causes of TMD

Although the proven cause of TMD remains unclear, there are a number of conditions that may factor into it:

  • Teeth clenching/grinding
  • Jaw dislocation
  • Injury to jaw, muscles in head/neck
  • Rheumatoid arthritis/osteoarthritis in jaw
  • Stress

Jaw muscle and joint problems are complex-diagnosis that may take time and multiple visits to a dental office. Whether you have TMD or not, it’s important to seek medical attention in order to reverse damage and restore function.

If you experience any of the symptoms of TMD, don’t delay proper treatment. Oftentimes, waiting to be treated will further damage your jaw. Schedule an appointment with one of our dentists today. We will provide you with information and administer necessary treatment and therapy.

Dentures

Whether you need complete or partial dentures, our dentist at Heritage Hill Dental Care will help you get your smile back on track.

Denture Advantage

Why is a healthy, strong set of dentures important? They stand in for missing teeth. Teeth not only help us bite and chew our food so that it can be easily swallowed; they also help us form words and speak properly.

Our team wants every patient to have the advantage of a functioning set of teeth and dentures make that possible. Complete and partial dentures offer benefits aplenty:

  • Cavity-free
  • Low-maintenance
  • Easy to clean
  • Durable

Partial Dentures

Are you missing only a few teeth? Partial dentures might be the best solution for you. Partial dentures are used when your upper or lower jaw still has one or two natural teeth.

If you choose partial dentures, replacement teeth will be molded and attached to a gum-coloured plastic base; the base is usually connected to a metal framework that holds the dentures in place. We replace each missing tooth by placing a crown on surrounding teeth and attaching the artificial tooth to these crowns & a bridge is cemented into place to fill the space.

If you want something less permanent, precision partial dentures are an option. Precision dentures have internal attachments that attach to adjacent crowns to make them removable and more natural-looking.

Complete Dentures

You can choose from two types of complete dentures: conventional and immediate. Conventional dentures are created after all teeth are removed and the gum tissue heals. They are ready to be placed in your mouth 10 weeks after teeth removal.

If you don’t want to wait for new “teeth,” immediate dentures might be a better option for you. Made in advance, immediate dentures can be placed in your mouth immediately following tooth removal. Although immediacy is an advantage, these dentures also come with complications: bones and gums shrink after tooth removal, and immediate dentures will have to be adjusted regularly to fit properly. In the long run, conventional dentures should be a permanent solution to temporary dentures.

If you are looking for a dentist who has knowledge and experience to create dentures in Stoney Creek, Hamilton, or Brantford, call for an appointment today. We will help you determine which dentures are best suited to your mouth.

Dental Implants

Missing or lost tooth can change the entire look and shape of your mouth. Gaps in your teeth can curb the ability to eat certain foods properly and spaces between teeth can reduce the attractiveness of your smile, and eventually diminish your self-confidence.

Dental implants are used to replace a single tooth or several teeth but the main goal of using teeth replacements procedure is to restore function and esthetics as well. We have three options through which we do teeth replacement on our patients.

Removable dental appliances

Dental implant

Fixed dental bridge

Our procedure can help replacing lost teeth with an artificial tooth root placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth in a place. The dental implants are rooted permanently in the mouth in order to give a feel and look of real teeth.

The dental implants look like your teeth and since they are designed to integrate with your bone, they become fixed and permanent. With dental implants, you can eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures in public, and also your craving for certain adhesive food items, you want to gorge upon.

Our dental implants are suitable to anyone in good general health. If you want to know more about Implant dentistry, you can contact us today 905.560.7057
