i.e. White Fillings
At Sandstone Dental we use a tooth-coloured composite filling material. We do not use metal/mercury fillings. Tooth-Coloured Composite material creates fillings that are not only cosmetically pleasing and unnoticeable but, also add strength to weakened teeth thanks to new bonding technologies.
Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. Dental crowns look and feel like your natural teeth.
Where damage to a tooth is extreme and apparently beyond repair, we can use tooth-coloured porcelain crowns to restore your smile, so it appears "as new". This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing severe dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite.
Dental crowns are used for long-lasting correction of major dental problems.
Crowns typically last for 10 years or more, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
How long does it take to fit a dental crown?
Fitting a crown requires two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown.
On the subsequent visit we will remove the temporary crown, and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will bond the crown into place and you will have a new beautiful looking tooth.

Healthy gums are the foundation of a healthy mouth and beautiful smile.
Our team of dental hygienists are dedicated to helping you maintain your gums and overall dental health.
Gum disease is often pain free but can ultimately result in premature tooth loss and lead to other health issues if left unattended
A gentle cleaning and check-up (also known as a "happy visit") is an excellent way to introduce your child to the clinic environment.
Start your child on the right path to a lifetime of good oral health.
Our general dentists and entire team provide a comfortable and nurturing environment for kids, that encourages and educates children about the importance of oral hygiene. A good dental education should begin early, helping little ones to form health habits so they can grow up with a healthy smile.

Whether you are transitioning into new dentures, need your existing dentures renewed, relined or repaired, or are looking for more support for your dentures with implants, we can help.
Obviously, no one wishes to have a tooth removed but when tooth removal becomes necessary, the dentists at Sandstone Dental are highly skilled at tooth extraction and are here to help. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced gum, jawbone or periodontal disease or may have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
The dentists at Sandstone Dental are highly skilled at tooth extraction and are here to help.
The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health. To avoid these complications, our doctors will discuss alternatives to extractions if possible and if not, replacement options for the extracted tooth.
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year in North America.
This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.
Symptoms of infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the gum around the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums or no pain at all and only diagnosed by x-ray examination.
How is a root canal performed?
If you experience any of these symptoms, your dentist will most likely recommend non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp. This injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This therapy usually involves local anaesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required. Success for this type of treatment occurs in about 90% of cases. If your tooth is not amenable to root canal treatment or the chance of success is unfavourable, you will be informed at the time of consultation.
What happens after treatment?
It is normal to experience some discomfort including biting or chewing sensitivity after a root canal treatment. Typically, this subsides in a few weeks. Patients post root canal treatment should take medications as prescribed. Recommended pain medications should be started before the freezing wears off. Since the pulp has been removed temperature sensitivity should also subside.
After a root canal treatment, a tooth always becomes weaker and is more likely to fracture. To strengthen the tooth following root canal treatment it is almost always recommended to crown the tooth.
