Biological Dentistry aims to be as non toxic
and as non invasive to your body as possible.
This involves proper replacement of your mercury
amalgam fillings and other fillings with biocompatible replacement
Typically, you will receive a biocompatibility
test to help determine the replacement materials that are
least reactive and offensive to your immune system. Also any
identifiable sources of dental infection will be treated.
Additionally, any biologically incompatible
crowns you have will be replaced with compatible ones. You
will further be guided to undergo the best available measures
to treat and possibly reverse any periodontal disease that
may be present. Consideration to the final occlusion is also
of primary importance.

Porcelain veneers, which are a more permanent way to restore
your teeth, will provide dramatic changes by closing gaps,
repairing chipped or worn teeth and covering discolorations.
Porcelain veneers can also correct your bite, often relieving
TMJ discomfort, and making crowded teeth appear straight ("instant
orthodontics"). This procedure requires only two visits.
The procedure will help restore teeth by filling in cracks,
chips and worn teeth. This process, in which enamel-like material
is applied to the tooth's surface and hardened with a light,
can usually be accomplished in a single visit.
Silver fillings date back to the days of the Civil War. These
fillings can act like metal wedges and put internal pressure
on the tooth, contributing to cracks and breakage. So what
can you do?
Tooth coloured fillings work well on smaller
cavities. Porcelain inserts are innovative pieces of porcelain
that replace the area where the old fillings are, thus saving
tooth structure. Bonded restorations will strengthen your
tooth to 90% of its original strength.
What if I don't care about cosmetics or the
way my teeth look? The exciting thing about bonded restorations
is that they will strengthen your teeth back to 90% of their
original strength. It is just an added bonus that your teeth
will look natural and beautiful.
"Gummy Smiles" are a very common problem, caused
by overgrowth of the gum tissue that then covers the teeth.
This unsightly occurrence can be caused by a variety of things,
including heredity, health conditions, and even the use of
many common high blood pressure medications. A gummy smile
will dominate the mouth, making the teeth seem almost secondary
We use a laser to change the look and shape
of the gums. The laser actually vaporizes unnecessary and
unsightly tissue, leaving healthy, normal looking gums in
place. The laser is unmatched in its accuracy and effectiveness.
The process takes on a few minutes for most, and there is
usually very little discomfort.
Tooth Saving Porcelain Inserts and Bridges
Have you ever had a piece of your tooth break and then have
the rest of the tooth ground down in order to place a crown?
That may no longer be necessary. With minimal tooth reduction,
we can restore broken and cracked teeth with innovative porcelain
inserts to make your tooth almost new. The same technology
can be used to replace missing teeth.
