Having a plaque attack?

Image
Plaque is that soft, sticky stuff that builds up on your teeth over time. It contains legions of bacteria. Left untreated it will eventually lead to gum disease, bad breath and tooth loss.

Frequent brushing and flossing are required to keep plaque at bay. But it's virtually impossible to remove all plaque without the skills of your professional dental hygienist. In other words, you're going to need some help.

Call our office today to schedule your next routine teeth cleaning to receive help with your plaque removal!

One Visit Dental Crowns

Image
Crowns in a Single VisitDr. Aitken is pleased to now be able to offer metal-free, same-day crowns, inlays, and onlays made with CEREC™, a highly precise computer milling machine that makes crowns right in the office, while you wait! No more temporaries, return visits, or crowns that don't seem to fit right. CEREC all-porcelain crowns are not only convenient, they're made of strong, beautiful materials and designed to perfectly match the rest of your teeth. Due to the custom design and precise fit, CEREC restorations can be bonded to the tooth with optimum strength. If you have ever had a crown placed the traditional way, we are sure you will notice the difference!

Dental Bridges

Image
An Affordable Alternative for Multiple Missing TeethFor some patients who have multiple missing teeth, a bridge may be an appropriate solution to restore full chewing ability. A bridge is anchored on both sides with crowns made of the same material and spans the gap for a return to function and comfort. Our bridges and crowns are created in colours design to blend with your existing teeth and reconstruct the fullness of your smile.

Your Dental Hygienist!

Image
Normally we think of a teeth cleaning as just that. Our tongues love the smooth and clean feeling we get after visiting our dental hygienist.

But there's another huge benefit to regular teeth cleaning. Hygienists spend time in your mouth. That give them the opportunity to spot suspicious tissue or other possible signs of oral cancer.

Oral cancer has a fantastically high cure rate - but only if it's detected early.

Another reason to love your dental hygienist!

Smile Makeovers

Image
Maybe you remember that TV show, Extreme Makeovers?

They took people who were unhappy with their appearance and let surgeons and dentists perform cosmetic miracles on their bodies and teeth.

Well, a complete smile makeover like that can be done by many dentists, And often it only takes two visits!
