Weston Family Practice offers dentistry for the entire family. We understand that adults and children have different needs and we address
them all. Adults want the best technology, the most well-informed dentists and the highest quality of care, while children want to be comfortable and respected. That’s why our dentists have extensive experience working with both adults and children. We can make your dental experience more enjoyable for everyone.
Cosmetic Dentistry – Improving Your Smile
Having a great smile can make a huge difference in the way you look and feel. We offer a wide range of cosmetic treatments to create the confident smile you've always wanted. We begin with a detailed smile assessment, discussing with you which aspects you like and dislike about your smile. Once our assessment is complete, we will discuss with you treatment options to help your smile look more natural, healthier and youthful.
We enjoy the challenge of restoring your smile. Thanks to rapid advances in dental technology, there is much more that we can do for our patients. Modern ceramic materials combined with the in-depth experience of our clinical team can assure you of an effective and long-lasting result. For example, crowns can be used to replace the top part of a tooth when it has become irreparably damaged but the root is still healthy.
Emergency Dental Care
We recognize that dental emergency situations do arise and at Weston Family Practice, we will do our best to respond to your problem promptly. Regardless of it being something as simple as a tooth filling or a complicated procedure, we can provide you with assistance.
This includes our regular dental hygiene visits, sealants, mouthguards and patient/parent education. We place a high emphasis on sealants, which are effective in preventing tooth decay on the biting surfaces of chewing teeth. This coating, which is clear or tooth-coloured, is applied to deep pits and fissures. This seals them in the areas where decay is most likely to begin.
We understand your concerns regarding the use of mercury fillings. Accordingly, at our practice we use only new, advanced fillings made of tooth-coloured materials that contain no metals or mercury, instead of traditional silver fillings.
At our practice, we know that your smile is important to you. A beautiful smile can make you have better self-esteem, allow you to feel more comfortable in social situations and help you be more successful. With our smile makeovers, we can change your life!
A smile makeover refers to any combination of cosmetic dental procedures that enhance the beauty and appearance of your smile, correcting almost any problem:
- Crooked teeth can be straightened
- Chipped, broken teeth can be repaired
- Missing teeth can be replaced
- Gaps between teeth can be closed
- Stained, discoloured teeth can be whitened
- and so much more.
Now you can have significantly whiter teeth using advanced teeth-whitening techniques. Both comfortable and affordable, our teeth-whitening procedure involves you wearing a specially crafted tray in order to achieve a surprising difference in your smile!
If you’ve lost teeth from decay, injury or periodontal (gum) disease, dentures are the solution. Whether partial or full dentures, they’re essential not only to your aesthetics, but also to your oral health. In addition to allowing you to eat more easily, dentures protect against facial sagging that would otherwise occur and give you a more aged appearance. Dentures will also promote your natural speech. Denture maintenance, combined with a regular regimen of proper brushing, can guarantee you a comfortable, healthy mouth for the rest of your life. Please call us today to discuss the numerous available options in more detail.
Dental & Restorative Implants
Dental implants are essentially permanent, attached teeth that replace partials, bridges or dentures. A titanium implant is permanently attached to your bone and a prosthetic tooth (crown) is attached to the implant. Implants are preferred to bridges because they can improve your bite without involving adjacent teeth (like a bridge would). Treatment can be finished in three to five visits over the span of 4 to 12 months.
We offer in-practice digital x-rays for your convenience. Digital x-rays are computer-generated images. These images require up to 80% less radiation than with conventional film-type x-rays. Instead of using the traditional silver oxide x-ray film that must be developed and then fixed in caustic and environmentally damaging solutions, this new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor and instantaneously transmits a picture of the tooth onto the video monitor in the treatment room. Therefore, we can see your teeth and surrounding structures immediately. Feel free to contact us for more details or to make an appointment!
State-of-the-Art Antiseptic Procedures
Our sterilization procedures meet the Health Protection Agency guidelines. We heat-sterilize all handpieces and instruments after each use. We only use Health Protection Agency approved disinfectants, disposable gloves, masks, eye protection and barrier covers at all times. Your family's safety is our top priority.
