Dental veneers are very tiny shells covering your teeth. They require very minimal preparation and modern technology allows us to make them as thin as 0.3mm.
Veneers can improve any of the following characteristics:
Colour of your teeth, making them whiter and younger looking Shape of your teeth. Ideally designed by digital software, veneers enhance natural beauty of your smile
Alignment and spacing, giving you straight teeth without braces (depending on teeth positions)
Size of your teeth. If your teeth look short due to breaking or tooth wear, or if you feel your teeth are too long, too wide or narrow, veneers can help.
WISDOM teeth extractions
Potential problems caused by the presence of improperly grown-in wisdom teeth include infections caused by food particles easily trapped in the jaw area behind the wisdom teeth, where regular brushing and flossing is difficult and ineffective. Such infections may be frequent and cause considerable pain and medical danger. Another reason to have a wisdom tooth removed is if the tooth causes the tongue to brush up against it. In our office, a wisdom teeth extraction can be done under sedation.
For people who avoid dentists, sedation dentistry may take away some of the anxiety. Sedation can be used for everything from invasive procedures to a simple tooth cleaning. How it is used depends on the severity of the fear.
We use two types of sedation at our office depending on level of comfort and dental fear severity.
What is Sedation Dentistry? Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It’s sometimes referred to as “sleep dentistry” although that’s not entirely accurate. Patients are usually awake with the exception of those who are under general anesthesia. Sedation dentistry allows the patient to experience reduced levels of anxiety and fear during a dental procedure. With sedation dentistry, the patient will be in a deep state of relaxation and will feel as though the procedure only lasts a couple of minutes, when in fact it may last a couple of hours. The patient will be able to respond to verbal commands and will breathe on his or her own. Patients may have little to no memory of their experience, including the sounds and smells of the dental office. They will be relaxed, safe and comfortable.
There is no reason for concern if you require a root canal. Endodontics, also known as root canal therapy, refers to a filling of the root structure of your tooth. This is usually required as a result of trauma to the tooth or significant decay that involves the nerve or pulp of your tooth. During an endodontic procedure, the tooth is cleaned, filled and restored to its original shape and size. Generally, a crown is placed over the tooth to protect it from further problems. This crown will protect your tooth for years to come, and the endodontic treatment allows your tooth to survive. As with all treatment provided here, Dr. Seagal will ensure your complete comfort and understanding. A root canal is nothing to be worried about, it is however extremely important in the saving of your tooth!

CROWNS & BRIDGES
At our office, Dr. Seagal offers both crowns and bridges for a number of cosmetic and functional situations.
If you are missing some of your teeth, don’t worry, Dr. Seagal can help you. Dr. Seagal knows that losing teeth can have an unwelcome impact socially and psychologically.
Crown and bridge procedures permanently replace missing and worn tooth structures. Dr. Seagal utilizes very strong, aesthetic dental materials to restore teeth to their natural function and beauty. This technology has evolved so that in certain cases, all-ceramic (porcelain) materials are used. These metal-free restorations are not only very strong, but life-like too. Sometimes crowns or bridges are constructed in conjunction with other cosmetic services, such as porcelain laminates, to create an entire new look. No special maintenance is necessary and the restorations generally last for many years.
takes a modern approach to straightening teeth with clear braces. Invisalign® uses a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth. This is a perfect solution for adults and teens that prefer clear braces over metal braces
