Brighton Dental Centre your Brighton family dentist!
We are a full-service general dental office, here to take care of the dental health of you and your family. Some of the basic dental services we provide are.
We create a stress free environment.
Fear of the unknown is one of the main reasons people find dentists intimidating. From the very first visit, we focus on creating a positive experience for you and your family. Our dedicated team will walk you through the process so that you and your loved ones are familiar with the process and there is no fear of the unknown. We also offer sedation options for children and adults to overcome dental anxiety.
We provide composite tooth fillings for cracked teeth and cavities. Has it been a while since you visited a dentist? We’re accepting new patients. Schedule your first judgement-free appointment.
We use a dental composite material designed to match the natural appearance of your teeth. Composite fillings are in some ways superior to mercury silver fillings that tend to darken and weaken teeth in addition to being cosmetically unpleasant. Other materials such as fluoride-releasing dental cement can also be used in areas of high cavity risks.
Crowns are placed on top of your teeth to restore appearance and function. They make your teeth look better and they strengthen weak teeth by acting as a helmet on top of the tooth. Multiple or large fillings, or cracks can cause teeth to weaken.
One of the options to replace missing teeth is making a bridge. Bridges are different than dentures because they are permanent, meaning they can’t be easily removed like dentures. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth on either side of the missing tooth and a fake tooth is placed in the middle. The fake tooth and the bridges are connected on either side like a “bridge” connected on either side of a river.
If necessary, we can use root canals to restore teeth to their full function! We provide root canal treatment for deeply infected teeth and cavities. Do you have tooth pain? Most root canals are pain-free. We can provide the right treatment and make it as comfortable as possible. Schedule your first judgement-free appointment.
Is It Painful?
Root canal treatments have a bad reputation of being very painful, however in reality the vast majority of root canal treatments are pain-free and a lot of patients actually end up dozing off in the chair as it is a relatively longer appointment.
How Does It Work?
In order to save the tooth, the living tissue inside the tooth is removed along with the bacteria and any decay. The resulting space is filled with special medicated dental materials and the tooth is restored to its full function.
Early and positive dental experiences go a long way in encouraging a child to understand the importance of taking care of their teeth. It’s important for kids to get an early start to regular brushing, flossing and dental checks. When picked up early in life these habits are fundamental to healthy teeth throughout adulthood.
When should your child start seeing the dentist?
Most dentists recommend that a child’s first visit should be when the first tooth erupts or by their first birthday.
