Plaque and calculus form on the teeth and can irritate the gum tissue causing gingivitis. The scaling of teeth to remove the plaque and calculus can reverse gingivitis.
When regular dental hygiene care is not received the build up on the teeth can allow the gingivitis to progress to periodontal disease which leads to bone loss that is not reversible.
Regular dental cleanings are an important part of the overall health of your mouth.
Staining of the teeth from coffee, tea, wine or even some foods can make your smile not as bright as you would like it. Surface stain can be removed with dental polishing during a regular dental appointment. If the stain has caused a more permanent discolouration then whitening can help to improve your smile.
Not everyone is a candidate for tooth whitening but if this is something you are interested in we can definitely evaluate your smile.

We all know the dangers of sports and concussions. An effective way to reduce this risk is through the wearing of a sports guard. A custom fit sports guard is usually more comfortable to wear than a store purchased one. Ask about it during your visit.
