Does Bell Harbour Dental Offer Sedation Dentistry?

Our sedation dentistry helps get rid of anxiety and fear. It helps patients remain calm while having their treatment or procedure performed. We use sedation, such as oral conscious sedation and IV sedation. For most of the treatments involving kids that require the use of sedation, we utilize laughing gas.

What Types of Cosmetic Dentistry does Bell Harbour Dental offer?

We do various cosmetic procedures, including teeth whitening, bonding, veneers, implants, bridges, and crowns. Our in-office teeth whitening can be completed in just one hour. We do implant placements for patients who need to replace lost teeth. Our skilled team back our implant placements to make sure they are successful. We place veneers to cover or hide imperfections on teeth like cracked, stained, fractured, or chipped teeth. Additionally, we do bonding to close gaps, repair chips, and change tooth size and shape.

Does Bell Harbour Dental Offer Teeth Whitening Services?

Yes, we provide teeth whitening as one of our mainstream services in cosmetic dentistry. We have in-office whitening that our dentist does in our office. The chairside whitening takes about an hour, depending on how many shades a patient wants to lighten their teeth. Apart from the in-office whitening, we can also organize take-home trays with whitening gel to use at your own pace. We, however, supervise these home treatments so that you obtain the desired outcomes.

We want all our patients to be able to receive the dental care they require without being restricted by financing options. We have third-party financing like CareCredit that we partner with to ensure you can finance your treatment comfortably. Again, we have options like cash, debit card, and even credit card.

What Should I Do If I Have a Dental Emergency Outside of Regular Business Hours?

Since dental emergencies can arise during the most unexpected hours, especially at night or on the weekend, you need to have the contacts of an emergency dentist available during these times. Emergency dentists can take care of urgent and emergency dental issues like toothaches, abscesses, and knocked-out teeth when they arise when other dental offices are closed. A Saturday dentist is handy when you need dental treatment over the weekend. Talk to us if you require emergency dental care at our office.

What Should I Expect During My First Visit to Bell Harbour Dental?

Your first trip to our clinic is the time for our dentist to know much about you. We want to know your medical and dental history. We keep this information in our records to reference it easily whenever you return. We do exams, including X-rays, and thoroughly inspect your mouth and oral cavities. Furthermore, we ask you about any dental issues you have suffered in the past and the kinds of treatments you received. Our dentist or hygienist will also clean your mouth, ensuring you go home with a fresh breath and clean gums and teeth.

Why Do I Need to Come in Every 6 Months?

Even with the stringent oral hygiene practices you do at home, including flossing twice daily and brushing a day thrice for not less than two minutes, it is likely that you will have biofilm and tartar forming. We want our patients to come to us every six months because we want to clean their mouths to remove the tartar on their teeth. Our hygienist or dentist will also clean deep in the pockets within areas where you don't usually reach with your at-home dental hygiene routine. Moreover, our dentist does X-rays and exams to detect any hidden oral disease or other problems in your mouth.

What Type of Toothbrush Should I Use?

We advise our patients to use soft-bristled toothbrushes since they are gentle on the gum tissue and teeth. Hard bristled brushes wear down the enamel and irritate the gums, and can create problems like sensitivity and damage to the enamel and gums. Once you have used your toothbrush for about three months, you should replace it. In most cases, it is ineffective or has frayed to a point where it is causing damage to the mouth. You can get an interdental brush if you have problems with food particles sticking between the teeth. With flossing, an interdental brush can help remove debris, leftovers, and biofilm from these hard-to-reach areas.
