Today’s advanced dental treatments and materials can give you a healthier, more complete smile that can last you a lifetime. Your London, Ontario dentist, Drs. Smith and Associates, can help revitalize and maintain your teeth and gums, giving you the smile you’ve always wanted. Our dentists at 525 Dental offer a wide variety of dental services. We focus on both preventative and restorative dental issues to care for your teeth throughout all ages and stages.
Preventative Dental Services
Preventative services at 525 Dental focus on clean, healthy teeth to minimize the risk of dental decay and damage. First, routine dental cleanings are essential to good tooth and gum maintenance. Additionally, dental sealants fight against tooth decay through an acrylic seal that keeps bacteria out and protects the tooth. Sealants guard the creaks and crevices in your teeth that can be difficult to reach with regular brushing and flossing.
Amalgam & Composite Fillings
Fillings are an important tool to correct cavities and combat tooth decay. Amalgam fillings are a mixture of mercury and another substance, and they tend to be less expensive and last slightly longer than composite fillings. Composite fillings are typically white-colored, which matches the original color of the teeth better, and they blend in better with the natural shape of the teeth. They also do not contain mercury, which may be harmful to your health. Both types of fillings are available at our office and deemed safe by the Canadian Dental Association.
Crowns & Root Canals
When you need more than preventative care from a dentist, we can perform a nonsurgical root canal, place a crown, or even extract a tooth if needed. A nonsurgical root canal goes deep into the tooth to remove extensive dental disease while saving the exterior of the tooth itself. A dental crown is a good treatment where the decay exceeds the repair that a filling can accomplish. A crown is one of the longest lasting dental repairs with a typical lifespan of 20 to 30 years, and it can improve your bite and repair your smile. In some cases, the best fix for a bad tooth is to remove it. At 525 Dental, we specialize in painless dentistry techniques, to minimize your discomfort during and after major dental procedures.
Dental Bridges & Implants
For missing teeth, a dental implant, bridge, or dentures can help you regain your smile and assist in daily activities like eating and speaking. A dental bridge is used to preserve the function and alignment of teeth when you are missing one. A bridge attaches a prosthetic tooth to the neighboring original ones and helps to preserve the natural spacing of teeth. A dental implant uses a titanium rod that adheres to your jaw bone as the foundation for placing a new manufactured tooth at the site of a missing tooth. We also fit patients for dentures, and we can help you get exactly the pair you need at the right time.
