Penticton Dental provides a full range of general dentistry services, to maintain the health of your smile, and to repair damage done by dental disease or injury.
Fillings are applied to replace decay or damage in a tooth, and to restore the tooth's structure. We generally use white fillings (composites) for a more natural look and feel, which are placed in a single visit.
Bioclear fillings are specially placed to close spaces and achieve maximum esthetics and youthful appearance.
Proper daily care with brush and floss is the only way to maintain healthy teeth. Visiting our office for professional cleaning, examination, and advice is also a critical component of your dental health maintenance.
It is not easy to keep teeth into the later decades of life but we attempt to aid people who share this goal.
Root Canal Therapy
A root canal is a final effort to save a tooth that would otherwise have to be removed from the mouth, by replacing it's damaged nerve tissue with an artificial filling material.
Root canal treated teeth can function completely normally in the mouth for years despite being non-vital.
Crowns & Bridges
A crown is a dentist's way of replacing large amounts of missing tooth structure, using the materials with the highest level of strength.
The actual restoration is made in a dental lab from a model of the prepared tooth, and therefore requires two appointments to place.
A bridge is a fixed way to replace a missing tooth or teeth using the same techniques as a crown.
Crowns and bridges are the "go-to" way to create strength in the case of badly compromised teeth.
