Dr Brian Clark is proud to provide CEREC 3-D Technology to our patients in need of restorations. The CEREC system has revolutionized the dental field by meeting the needs of our patients in a more convenient manner. Gone are the days where the patient must return for multiple visits to complete a restoration. CEREC Technology can design, fabricate and place a ceramic restoration in just one visit! A special wand is used to create a digital image of the tooth on the computer. Your new crown is then designed and the information is sent electronically to the milling machine which is in our office. You relax and watch TV or listen to music while the Cerec machine mills your new tooth. When it’s ready, the restoration is permanently attached to your tooth and you’re done. With this new system, the need for temporaries, impressions and multiple visits has been totally eliminated.
Through the use of this new technology, we can save more of the healthy tooth structure in our patients while giving them beautiful, tooth-coloured restorations that are metal-free and durable.
Invisalign® is the clear way to straighten teeth without braces, using aligners, which are removable and virtually invisible. This means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing; and you can still eat and drink what you want. Also, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth. Many of our patients had never considered traditional braces but are now happily and comfortably improving their smiles with Invisalign. Sure, there are other options out there for straightening your teeth, but none offers the level of comfort, convenience and confidence that you'll find with Invisalign®. And no matter what stage you're at in life, you'll appreciate how our cutting-edge approach to treatment has minimal interference in how you live, but has a significant positive impact on how you look and feel about yourself.
In the past decade there has been a dramatic interest in cosmetic dentistry. We all realize that having a healthy, bright, beautiful smile enhances our appearance and allows us to smile with confidence. Thanks to the advances in modern cosmetic dentistry, we are able to improve our teeth and smiles with quick, painless and surprisingly affordable treatments.
Cosmetic dental treatments can:
Change the size, shape, and alignment of certain teeth.
Fill in unattractive spaces between teeth.
Improve or correct bites.
Lighten or brighten the color of teeth.
Repair decayed, broken, cracked, or chipped teeth.
Replace missing teeth.
Replace old, unattractive dental treatments.
Remember, your smile speaks before you even say a word!
In today’s world, dentistry does not have to be a feared science. With 21st century technology, we can now deliver state-of-the-art care with comfort and convenience. We no longer have to settle for old, ugly, cracked, silver fillings. Nor do crowns have to have metal edges showing at the gum line. Orthodontics can be done without metal, and teeth can be white and beautiful. In short, we can all enjoy the advancements of modern general and cosmetic dentistry. The restorations placed today are very conservative, and after final placement, will be both virtually invisible and better for the tooth. These wonderful advancements in dentistry are not only natural, but also long-lasting.
