Dental Bleaching

This is a common procedure that restores the natural colour of the tooth. This is also referred to as dental bleaching.

Dental Cleaning

Plaque that builds up and hardens on the tooth surface can only be removed with professional cleaning. During a usual checkup your dentist or dental hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line of all teeth. If you have some signs of gum disease, your dentist may recommend professional dental cleaning more than twice a year.

Dental Consultation

Dental consultation is a diagnostic service that caters to the discussion of the patient's dental needs and proposed treatment modes.

Dental Restoration

Dental restoration is the process of restoring your damaged, broken-down or missing teeth to a healthy, functional and beautiful state.

Tooth Extraction

If your teeth is extremely loose, crowded, broken or severely damaged by decay, your dentist will perform a tooth extraction (also referred to as exodontia) to pull out the tooth.


Dental Bonding

Tooth bonding is usually performed to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It can also close spaces between teeth, make teeth look longer or change the shape or color of teeth. Using adhesives and a high intensity curing light, a tooth-colored resin material (a durable plastic material) is applied to the tooth.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are used to conceal the gap between healthy teeth.

Dental Contouring

Tooth contouring and reshaping is the procedure for minor dental problems. This treatment fixes minor flaws like chipped teeth, stained teeth, overlapping or crooked teeth and enhances facial appearance. Tooth contouring and reshaping is also performed when a tooth is fractured. The dental contouring procedure can also be used as a substitute for braces under certain circumstances. Generally, tooth contouring and reshaping is used to alter the length, shape or position of your teeth. The primary goal of tooth contouring and reshaping is to modify the size or shape of the slightly damaged teeth so that they are brought back into alignment with the rest. In addition to cosmetic benefits, the procedure also offers health gains. Aligned teeth are easier to clean and correcting overlaps makes sure that the risk of dental problems is reduced.

Dental Inlays, Onlays and Overlays

An inlay or onlay is a much more conservative restoration for the tooth than a metal filling. Inlays are used to restore inside the cusps of the tooth. Onlays are used for large restorations. They restore inside the cusp and extend over one or more sides of the tooth.

Dental Veneers

A veneer is a thin layer of restorative material put over the tooth surface for the purpose of improving the appearance of your tooth, or to protect a damaged tooth surface.


Dentures are custom-made to complement your appearance and to suit your dental needs such as comfort when talking, biting and chewing. This type of denture is carefully crafted to conform to the contours of your face while complementing the color of your hair and the complexion of your skin. Factors such as age, gender, personality, & overall physical appearance are also taken into account when crafting your dentures. A preliminary or a working denture which is designed for adjustment is given to you for you to try it out and you may make changes that fit your desired look and your dental needs. Once you are fully comfortable with the design, the on-site lab will custom finish your denture into a permanent acrylic base material.


Dental Braces

Dental braces are used to help align and straighten your teeth to fix underbites, overbites, crooked teeth and various other flaws of your teeth and jaw.


Dental Implants

A dental implant is a titanium-made replacement for the root or roots of your tooth.


Gingivectomy is the process of the removal of gingiva which are soft tissues overlying the crowns unerupted teeth and encircles the necks of those that have erupted.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction, sometimes called reconstruction or restoration, describes the process of rebuilding the color, shape, size and proportion of all of the teeth in both your upper and lower jaws.

Smile Makeover

Smile makeover refers to a variety of dental, facial and cosmetic procedures that aim to improve the aesthetics of your smile.


Pulp Treatment

Pulp treatment maintains the integrity of the affected tooth so that your child's tooth is not lost until the permanent tooth is ready to emerge. Dental caries (cavities) and traumatic injury are the two main reasons for your child's tooth to require pulp therapy. Pulp therapy is often referred to as a "nerve treatment," "baby or children's root canal," "pulpotomy," or "pulpectomy." Pulpotomy is the removal of the infected part of the nerve tissue within the crown portion to prevent further inflammation and spread of disease. Pulpectomy is the complete removal of the diseased pulp tissue from both the crown and the roots.

Root Canal Treatment

Endodontic or Root Canal treatment is necessary when the pulp (the soft tissue inside the root canal) becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can be caused by either deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, a crack or chip in the tooth or an injury to a tooth that shows no visible chips or cracks which may contribute to pulp damage. The Endodontist removes the inflamed or infected pulp, carefully cleans and shapes the inside of the canal, a channel inside the root, then fills and seals the space. Afterwards, you will return to your dentist, who will place a crown or other restoration material on the tooth to protect and restore it to full function. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth.
