Crowns are covers that fit over an entire tooth. They are traditionally used on teeth that have sustained significant structural loss, to prevent further damage. There are a few different options when choosing a crown treatment. Porcelain, gold and porcelain fused to metal are all common choices. Porcelain is the most aesthetically similar to a regular tooth, while gold is often the most durable. For more detailed information about crowns, click here.
Dental bridges are used to treat gaps left from lost teeth. When 1 or more teeth are missing, it can cause the surrounding teeth to shift or rotate into the empty spaces. Bridges can help to avoid these problems by placing two crowns on the teeth on either side of the gap. The bridge is then attached to the crowns to hold the teeth in their correct position. You can learn more about dental bridges here.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically anchored into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. Implants do not rely on adjacent teeth for support, and they are permanent and stable.
The ideal candidate for a dental implant should have good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is also needed to support the implant. The best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of gum (periodontal) disease.
Implants can replace a single tooth, several teeth, or if you are missing all of your teeth, an implant supported full-bridge or full-denture can replace them.
Dental implants require the same care and cleaning as normal teeth. To learn more about if dental implants are a good option for your oral health and your smile, give us a call!
Veneers are thin, semi-translucent porcelain placed over the front teeth. Veneers can significantly enhance the appearance of your smile and help to restore your confidence in your appearance. Common problems that are treated with veneers are:
Veneers can be a great aesthetic solution to your smile, and in some cases they can be used to avoid orthodontic treatment. Most veneer applications can be completed in two visits at our clinic. To learn more about how veneers can be used to improve your smile, call our dental clinic in Richmond, BC, today.

Invisalign treatment is a great alternative to traditional braces, which can be unsightly and uncomfortable. Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear, removable, custom-fit aligners that straighten teeth over time. Each aligner is worn for roughly two weeks, and only removed for eating, brushing and flossing. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move, little-by-little, until they reach the correct positioning. At Moncton Dental, we’re pleased to offer all of our patients free Invisalign consultations, and upon the completion of an Invisalign treatment, we offer complimentary whitening.

Teeth whitening can be a great option for people whose teeth have darkened from age, coffee, tea or smoking. The active ingredient in most whitening products is carbamide peroxide. When water comes in contact with this white crystal, hydrogen peroxide is released, which whitens teeth. We’ve found that many patients have had success with dentist-supervised at-home whitening treatments. These treatments usually last between 2 to 4 weeks. While teeth whitening is a great option for some, it’s not the right option for everyone. We recommend scheduling a consultation with our clinic before starting a whitening regimen.
