Blog Post - Cosmetic Dentistry - All You Need to Know About Veneers

A veneer is a thin casing of either porcelain or composite resin that is bonded to the front surface of a tooth to improve its appearance. It can be used to eliminate the problem of stained or dark teeth, close spaces between teeth or reshape a tooth that is shortened by wear.

Blog Post - Why is gum health important for dental implants?

Your gums are the foundation for your teeth and implants. Imagine a tree that is planted in the earth. Without the earth surrounding the roots to support them, the tree would eventually fall.  Gums act similarly as the support structure for your teeth and, with correct care at home and regular visits to your dentist, healthy gums can help you retain your teeth and implants for life.

Maintenance – What can I do to make my implants last?


Caring for your dental implants is very similar to caring for your own teeth. Brushing twice a day with a soft toothbrush and flossing daily, together with regular professional hygiene visits that match the maintenance of your natural teeth, are the key to implant longevity.

Just as your natural teeth, if not cared for adequately, can develop periodontitis (gum and bone recession), neglected dental implants can develop peri-implantitis which can cause soft tissue and bone loss. In some cases this can lead to the loss of your implants.

There are 3 easy steps to maintain your dental implants:

  • 1.Brush at least twice a day around the teeth, gums and abutments with a small, soft toothbrush or interdental brush.
  • 2.Floss frequently to prevent plaque from building up which can lead to gum tissue inflammation and peri-implantitis.
  • 3.Visit the dentist every 6 months for professional cleaning and check up. The implants should be examined with an x-ray every 1, 3 and 5 years.

Your dental implants will last a long time if you take care of them.
