Having a beautiful smile starts with healthy teeth and gums. Dr. Dhaliwal believes in a collaborative approach, first understanding the current state of your oral health and then working with you create a plan that will help you achieve your long term dental goals.

Cleanings and Exams

The ultimate goal of dental cleanings (“hygiene visits”) is to keep your teeth clean, healthy and free of disease. Periodic professional cleanings and check ups are necessary to ensure dental problems don’t go undetected or lead to bigger issues in the long run.

We begin each new patient appointment with a discussion of your overall dental goals so we may get a better understanding of how we can help you achieve them. We then take any necessary diagnostic x-rays, digital scans of your teeth and provide you with an initial cleaning and exam. Once Dr. Dhaliwal has the necessary information from your evaluation, he can create a treatment plan that best meets your goals. We take the time to discuss all your treatment options and answer any questions you may have so you can make an educated decision about your dental health. Please plan to spend 2 hours with us for your initial visit for the consultation, cleaning and exam.

Periodontal Treatment

Gum Disease usually starts as gingivitis, when the gum gets inflamed due to plaque build up. When plaque is not removed and hardens into tartar (calculus), it begins to push under the gums leading to inflammation, infection and potential bone loss.

Periodontitis (or gum disease) is a severe infection that damages the gums. If left untreated, it can destroy the bone that supports your teeth, causing the teeth to become loose or fall out. We use high-speed ultrasonic machines and air polishers for root planing and root scaling to remove tartar build up below your gum line and restore your gums to their healthy state.

Tooth Colored Filings

Dental fillings replace the decayed portion of your tooth. We use only composite resin materials that don’t contain mercury and are stronger, more durable and match the natural color of your tooth.

Porcelain Crowns

When a cavity is too large to be filled with a resin material, a dental crown is used to save the tooth from further damage. The crown conceals the entire visible part of the tooth and restores the affected tooth’s appearance and functionality.

Dental Implants

Dental implants replace missing teeth. They are based on a titanium implant inserted into the jawbone in the space of the missing tooth. The bone then grows around the implant, which becomes a part of your jaw. A prosthetic restoration tooth is attached to the implant and it can last the lifetime of the patient.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges serve as a replacement for single or multiple missing teeth. In essence, they bridge a gap between 2 teeth. A bridge has a crown placed on the healthy tooth on either side of the gap, with artificial teeth bridging the space.
