Your happiness is our business. Our cosmetic dentistry experts will work closely with you from start to finish, listening to your wishes, providing you with personal advice, and ensuring you are comfortable and informed on your journey to an entirely new smile.
Your smile makeover will begin with a thorough consultation. We will review your desires and areas of concern, taking into account everything from the size, shape, and alignment of your teeth to the colour of your skin and hair.
We can help your with the following:
- Crooked Teeth
- Missing Teeth

- Changing Face Shape
- Bite Alignment
- Porcelain Veneers
Improve the shape, size, and colour of teeth for a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
If you are unhappy with the look of one or more of your teeth, porcelain veneers can dramatically alter their appearance. Porcelain veneers are permanent, durable, and stain-resistant. They can be applied in as few as two visits.
Porcelain veneers are extremely thin, tooth-coloured shells that cover the front of the tooth. They can fix teeth that are chipped or worn, misshapen, discoloured, too short, or spaced too far apart.Learn More
- Invisalign® Clear Braces
The Invisalign system provides an inconspicuous alternative to conventional braces. A series of plastic aligners are used to gradually move teeth to their desired position, similar to wire braces. Unlike wire braces, however, these aligners are thin, unobtrusive, and transparent; they are nearly invisible when worn.Learn More
- Teeth Whitening
If you feel that your smile is not as bright as it could be, we can help. A more youthful, luminous smile is only a phone call away.
We have many years of experience delivering whiter, brighter teeth to patients. Our bleaching technique is safe, easy, and effective.
Over time, many people’s teeth become yellow or discoloured. Coffee, tea, wine, smoking, age, and many foods can darken your teeth and dull your smile. Whiter teeth can make you look younger and healthier, giving you more confidence in your smile and overall appearance. Professional whitening (or “bleaching”) is significantly more effective than over-the-counter whitening products, which often remove only surface stains. Your teeth can be whitened by several shades during a single course of treatment.Learn More
- Six Month Smile
Six Month Smile is a short term orthodontic treatment created for adults to accommodate any lifestyle. The clear braces are an effective way to give patients straight and healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. The average length of treatment is only 6 months, making this an easy and cost effective way to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

- Composite Fillings
A composite filling is a white or tooth-coloured resin capable of invisibly repairing tooth damage. Compared to traditional mercury amalgam fillings, composite fillings are versatile, discreet, and aesthetically pleasing. Composite material can be used to fill cavities, repair chips and fractures, and even to correct misshapen teeth. The filling can be matched perfectly to your tooth colour, eliminating the unsightly signs of tooth repair.
To apply a composite filling, the tooth is first frozen and prepared. The composite is then used to replace or cover the damaged part of the tooth before being hardened under a special blue light. Finally, it is shaped to fit seamlessly with the rest of your teeth and polished to a perfect finish. The composite filling will look and feel just like a part of your natural tooth.Book an Appointment
Unlike amalgam fillings, composite fillings bond strongly to your natural tooth, and are easily repaired if damaged. Properly cared for, composite fillings can last 10 years or more.
- Dental Bridges
A permanent bridge is a fixed dental prosthesis that replaces a missing tooth using the support of the surrounding teeth. If you are missing a tooth, a dental bridge can restore proper speaking and chewing ability, reduce discomfort, and prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of place. Just as importantly, a bridge can return your smile to its natural glory. Porcelain bridges are made to look and feel just like your regular teeth, seamlessly filling the gap left by a missing tooth.
The dental bridge is made up of one or two crowns with a prosthetic tooth in the middle. The crowns fit over the teeth surrounding the gap, and anchor the false tooth in place. Fitting and installing the bridge may take two or more appointments. At the first appointment, the surrounding teeth will be prepared to receive a crown, and a mould will be taken. The bridge will then be fashioned from the mould to fit over the anchoring teeth. The bridge will be installed during the second appointment; follow-up visits may be necessary to ensure a perfect, natural fit.
Dental bridges are very durable. With proper care, they can last 10 years or more.Book an Appointment
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that fits over a damaged or undesirable tooth. Crowns can be used to strengthen weak teeth, restore damaged or cracked teeth, or change the look of a visually unappealing tooth.
Fitting a crown may take two or more appointments. At the first appointment, the tooth will be prepared to receive the crown, and a mould or impression will be taken of the tooth and surrounding area. The mould will be used to create the crown, which will be installed at the second appointment. Subsequent visits may be required to achieve the best fit. Once complete, the crown will look and feel just like a normal tooth.Book an Appointment
Crowns are very durable and may last 10 years or more with proper care.
- Dental & Partial Dentures
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth and tissue. They can be partial (if there are remaining teeth) or complete (if no natural teeth remain). Dentures restore the look, feel, and function of natural teeth. They allow you to eat, drink, and smile with as much confidence as before the loss of your teeth. With dentures, your smile may be even better than before.
There are two types of dentures available: conventional and immediate. Immediate dentures are prepared before the natural teeth are removed, and are ready for wear as soon as removal is complete. Conventional dentures are fitted after the bone and tissue has healed following tooth removal, which may take a number of weeks. An impression is then taken of your mouth, and the denture is made to fit your mouth exactly. Both conventional and immediate dentures undergo a fitting process to ensure optimal fit. We can help you decide which option is best for you during a consultation.Book an Appointment
As your mouth is constantly changing, dentures will need regular realignment and adjustment to maintain their comfortable, natural fit.
