What is Invisalign?

Invisalign® clear aligners are an innovative and discreet way to straighten your teeth. Available for adults at Erinwood Dental– your dentist in Mississauga – this orthodontic choice gives you a straighter, healthier smile without metal, train-track braces. As well as looking more attractive than tightly spaced, crooked, or gapped teeth, a straight smile is easier to clean and keep healthy.

With Invisalign, clear, removable aligners gradually shift teeth into their correct position. These custom-made aligners fit snugly and comfortably onto your smile. They can be removed for cleaning your teeth, playing sports, and other activities. Millions of people love this orthodontic treatment because it’s so discreet.

If you’re looking for Invisalign, give us a call for a no-obligation consultation. We’ll look at your unique needs, determine if Invisalign fits into your lifestyle, and help you decide whether it’s the right choice for you. We hope to hear from you!

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a revolutionary way to replace missing teeth, regain form and function, and avoid the bone loss and facial changes that come when teeth are lost. When you have more than one missing tooth, bone loss can give you a prematurely aged look, your ability to enjoy the foods you love can be diminished (as chewing may become compromised), and your nutrition may also suffer. Dental implants can intercept these risks.

A dental implant is a biocompatible post that is inserted into your jawbone and continually stimulates the bone to prevent further bone loss. A crown is placed on this replacement tooth root to replace your lost tooth and let you chew the foods you love. They are self-supporting (they don’t need crowns on neighbouring teeth for support as you’d need with a dental bridge) and are beautifully crafted to look like a natural tooth.

If you’re looking for dental implants from a dentist in Mississauga, Oakville, or Etobicoke, we can help at Erinwood Dental! As with all of our services, we offer a variety of solutions to meet your needs. Whether you want to replace a single missing tooth with one implant, or all of your teeth with implant-supported dentures, this procedure could be the solution you’re looking for. Call today for a no-obligation consultation to see if this fantastic tooth-replacement option is for you!

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a fixed prosthetic device, which simply means it’s a tooth restoration that you don’t remove – it stays permanently in your mouth to support, strengthen, or conceal a tooth. It also refines its shape, alignment, color, and function. In days past, most crowns were made of gold, but now, because of their beauty, strength, and natural look, most crowns are made of porcelain. They’re so life-like, only you and your dentist in Mississauga at Erinwood Dental – us! – know that you’re sporting one.

The most common uses for crowns include:

  • Preventing a weak tooth from breaking
  • Restoring a broken tooth
  • Preserving & supporting a tooth that has had root canal treatment
  • Supporting tooth structure when a significant portion of the tooth has been filled
  • Covering severely discolored or poorly shaped teeth
  • In combination with a false tooth to create a dental crown & bridge.

Dental crowns are extremely durable, function the way your own teeth do, and with proper care, can last for 10 years or more. Let us help you love your functional and beautiful smile. Call today for your no-obligation consultation!

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers can cover many smile concerns including chips, stubborn stains, white spots due to fluorosis, and uneven teeth! They are extremely thin, natural-looking porcelain shells that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth and are one of the more-popular cosmetic dental treatments we offer.

You might consider veneers for your smile even if your teeth are:

  • slightly overlapping or are a bit crooked
  • a smidgeon off center, which skews the balance of your face
  • straight and even but have gaps in between them
  • somewhat chipped or worn down.

They are so convenient that you can have your new beautiful smile in as few as two appointments! If you think veneers may help you love your smile, call us to schedule a consultation and we’ll fit you right in! Our dentists in Mississauga at Erinwood Dental will answer your questions and together, we’ll determine if you are a candidate.
