Crown and Bridges

Single Visit / Same day Crowns and Bridges!

With CEREC CAD/CAM technology, our dentists are producing great results for crowns, bridges and ceramic inlays. CEREC uses CAD/CAM technology to produce crowns out of a single block of ceramic in a single visit. This digital technology is enviornmentally friendly, efficient and more convenient for our patients. This technology also gives our dentist the freedom of controlling the final looks of the restoration right there in front of your eyes.

Dental crowns are a custom-made restoration. Crowns fits over the prepared existing natural tooth and replaces the natural crown, which is the part of the tooth that is visible above the gums. Dental crowns are used for strength, durability and tooth stability, or for cosmetic reasons to enhance the appearance of a tooth. Crowns are a very common treatment and we have the latest technology in place for our experienced dentists to make your treatment easy, effective and painless. Our dentists make sure that the natural bite of the adjacent teeth are restored and the crown fits naturally. Your Dentist may recommend a crown for following reasons:

Scale and Clean

Scale and Clean

Regular scale & clean is essential to remove stains and calculus build up that develops on your teeth. Teeth cleaning is done as part of a regular dental check up. During your appointment, Dr Singh will check your teeth,  gums,  overall mouth and also evaluate your brushing and flossing by checking in between your teeth while cleaning. After examining and cleaning your teeth, Dr Singh will recommend a personalized advice on how to maintain healthy teeth and gums to avoid long term problems.

Don’t wait to see your dentist until you have dental issues. Most of the problems can be detected and diagnosed, before you start experiencing pain or discomfort. To remove the tartar and build up, your dentist will first use an Ultrasonic Scaler and then handheld instruments. After removing the build-up, the dentist will polish the teeth and make the teeth surfaces clean and smooth. Polishing teeth removes stains and minor imperfections on teeth surface and reduces future plaque build up. Your Dentist will advice you how often you need a scale and clean – 6 monthly or yearly. Professional dental cleaning is an addition to a good daily oral care routine. You should still brush and floss your teeth twice a day, choose healthy foods, avoid sugary acidic drinks and smoking.

Why are my teeth Sensitive?

Why are my teeth sensitive?

sensitive teethHave you ever felt a sharp stinging sensation while you are enjoying a scoop of ice cream, sipping cup of tea in the morning or just drinking glass of cold water? This sudden pain or sensation is called tooth sensitivity. At Heritage Dental Group, our experienced dentists try to identify causes of tooth sensitivity and steps you can take to combat sensitive teeth and gain optimum oral health.

What is tooth sensitivity?

If you are experiencing sudden sharp pain, while consuming hot and cold foods, or sometimes just breathing in leaves you with intense pain that means you are suffering from tooth sensitivity or dentin hypersensitivity. Tooth sensitivity is usually caused by dentin on root areas exposed due receded gums. When the root of a tooth becomes exposed it does not have a layer of enamel like the crowns of your teeth. Instead the roots have a very soft covering called cementum, which once lost leaves the dentin of the root exposed.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Here at Heritage Dental Group, we have highly trained and experienced dentists when it comes to the quick, safe and painless removal of wisdom teeth, with fast recovery.

Wisdom teeth, found at the back of the mouth, can cause problems for some people and may need to be removed. If your wisdom teeth need to be taken out, you will meet with the dentist carrying out your procedure to discuss your care. Following is an overview of what you can expect, although your treatment may differ from what’s described here as it will be designed to meet your individual needs.

Wisdom teeth usually emerge from your gums between the ages of 17 and 24. They are the last of the large grinding teeth at the back of your mouth (molars). Some people never develop wisdom teeth, or you could have up to four appearing – one in each corner of your mouth.

For most people, wisdom teeth don’t cause any problems and so they don’t need to be removed. However, if there isn’t enough space for them to grow at the back of your mouth they become ‘impacted’ wisdom teeth, causing pain, swelling and/or infection.
