General Dentistry and Cosmetic Services

The most foundational needs of every patient are to care for the basic and preventive treatments first. Southcentre Dental, your general dentist in Calgary, is focused on the overall health of the teeth, gums, jaw bone, and tissues. Every time you visit our dental clinic in Calgary, regular exams are an important aspect of general services, giving the dental team an opportunity to identify potential dental issues in the early stages. If problems are identified, such as tooth decay or gum disease, then early interventions can be used to minimize treatments required in the future. General dentistry includes a variety of services:

\

Checkups and cleanings

\

Fillings

\

Crowns

\

Tooth extraction

\

Wisdom teeth removal

\

Mouth guard for TMJ

\

Root canals

\

Emergency services

If you are looking to take your dental care to the next level, our cosmetic dental services go beyond the general health of your teeth and gums.

Commonly Asked Questions

What does a dentist do?

Dentists are oral health providers who focus on preventative, therapeutic, and restorative treatment for your teeth and the surrounding tissues (including gums and bone.) They’re also able to prescribe medications, screen for diseases, refer to other types of specialists, and perform biopsies. When you have a health problem related to your mouth, you would want to see a dentist instead of a traditional medical doctor. Although the mouth and body are closely related, medical facilities are typically not set up to provide dental-specific types of care. Dentists also offer treatments related to cosmetic procedures, TMJ treatments, orthodontic therapy, certain types of (oral) surgery, and growth modification. If you have sleep apnea, you can also see a dentist who is trained in sleep medicine to provide an oral sleep appliance. Some of the most common services available in our Southcentre Mall dentist office include checkups, cleanings, X-rays, gum disease treatment, tooth extractions, fillings, crowns, bridges, and dental implants. If you require any specific type of care, we’ll review the treatment options available so that you can play a key part in your care planning process.

What are the duties of a dentist?

Dentists provide comprehensive health services related to the mouth. These include things like tooth restoration (with fillings and crowns,) extractions or other oral surgeries, sort tissue therapy, and screening for oral-systemic signs of underlying health conditions. As a dentist in Calgary, we see people from all backgrounds and walks of life. Helping to provide preventative services, emergency care, and ongoing maintenance allows us to ensure that you keep your smile has healthy as possible, for as long as possible. Dentists also oversee a team of assistants and hygienists. Hygienists function independently of dentists but are still supervised in regard to which services are rendered and diagnosis of specific conditions. A dentist will screen for conditions like oral cancer, or medical diseases that present themselves with oral symptoms. Carefully navigating the relationship between mouth and body helps to enhance our patient’s overall wellness and quality of life. And of course, a dentist also offers elective cosmetic services that can help enhance the appearance of your smile! Teeth whitening and dental veneers are just a couple of examples.

What type of dentist does crowns and bridges?

Any general dentist is licensed to provide restorative crowns and bridges. If you’re seeing our family dentist in Calgary, you’ll be able to find all the restorative treatments needed to keep your smile functioning properly. Getting your crown or bridge made out of cosmetic materials is never a problem, as most modern labs make it possible to match your new restoration to the preferred color. Crowns are used to cover and protect broken, worn, or badly decayed teeth. A bridge on the other hand, is like a set of crowns bonded side by side. But only the end crowns set on top of a tooth; the one between them is suspended in the gap that’s created by a missing or extracted tooth. Crowns and bridges can also be placed on top of our Calgary dental implants! If you have missing teeth, implants can be used to anchor these fixed restorations so that longer bridges or removable dentures aren’t necessary. Our Calgary dentist works closely with a local lab to ensure the best fit and aesthetic outcome of every crown and bridge that we deliver.

How much does it cost to go to the dentist?

Dental care costs vary depending on where you live, the type of dentist that you’re seeing, your age, and if you have dental insurance. For instance, a checkup and cleaning for a child is usually priced lower than that for an adult. What most people don’t realize is that paying out of pocket (without insurance) for preventative services that help to reduce the risk of oral disease, is more affordable than avoiding dental checkups and only seeing a dentist when there’s a problem. Issues such as tooth decay are best prevented, not just because it’s cheaper, but because it’s healthier for your smile over the course of time. If for any reason you need a specific treatment, we’ll review all of the costs with you well in advance. That way you’re never caught off guard by the price of dental care. And if other options are available, we’ll review them with you so that you know what other choices there are. If you’re enrolled in an insurance plan, be sure to bring a copy of your card to your next visit!

What are the different dental procedures?

When you categorize dentistry into different service areas, you normally come up into various procedures labeled “cosmetic”, “preventative”, “restorative”, or even “major.” Although the labels might not mean much, they effect how your treatment is filed toward insurance and how your benefits cover them. Preventative treatments include your regular six-month checkups, exam, cleaning, X-rays, and other services like fluoride treatment or sealants. Each one plays a key role in preventing disease and intercepting it as early as possible, before you need serious dental work later on. Elective procedures like dental veneers or teeth whitening are considered cosmetic. But that doesn’t mean cosmetic approaches to care don’t also include restorative fillings and crowns. While our Calgary dentist preserves and rebuilds your smile, we can do so in a way that also enhances the overall appearance. Major treatments often encompass things like extractions, crowns, or root canal therapy. More often than not, they’re the last solution available for stabilizing your oral health. Each dental procedure is used alongside of the rest to help create a healthy, harmonious smile.

What is a general dentist?

All dentists and dental specialists first start out as “general” dentists. That is, a comprehensive oral health provider who provides a wide range of dental care to all ages. General dentists have a four-year degree in dentistry. If they choose to specialize in a specific type of service, they can return to school for another 2-3 years to become an expert in a key dental service, such as orthodontics. General dentists are often referred to as family dentists or cosmetic dentists, because of the wide range of services they offer under one roof. Seeing a family dentist in Calgary also makes it easy to book everyone’s checkups in one office, as opposed to driving back and forth across town between different specialists. General dentists often continue taking professional development courses to become better skilled in various services, such as dental implants, cosmetic dental veneers, or sedation. In fact, they’re legally required to meet a minimum number of training hours per year! But some love learning so much, that they take more courses than are required. Every general dentist passes special board exams and must maintain active licensure in their region in order to practice.

What procedures can a general dentist do?

Dentists routinely provide treatments for tooth decay, gum disease, and dental emergencies. They also replace missing teeth, restore damaged ones, and screen for conditions related to underlying health factors. Additionally, dentists evaluate people for oral cancer, perform tooth extractions and oral surgery, and offer preventative service that lower a person’s risk of oral health problems in the future. General dentists have training that encompasses all areas of dentistry. So even though there are specialists who offer treatments for children, involve braces, or focus on root canal therapy, a general dentist can still offer those same services inside of their office. If you’re looking for a cosmetic dentist in Calgary, turn to our general dentist at Southcentre Mall! We offer elective services that help to enhance the appearance of your smile so that you can feel better about showing it off. Can you take your kids to a general dentist? Absolutely! As family providers, general dentists make it easy to book everyone’s checkups in one location. And if you ever need emergency care, your children already have a relationship with the dentist and staff.

What is the difference between a cosmetic dentist and a general dentist?

General dentists offer all types of dental services. Although cosmetic dentistry might sound like a type of dental specialty, it isn’t. Rather, it’s an aspect of care and approach to treatment. So, if you’re looking for the best cosmetic dentist in Calgary, you won’t have to look any further than your family dental office! Cosmetic dentistry includes treatments like teeth whitening, dental veneers, composite bonding, tooth recontouring, and even short-term braces. Essentially, these procedures are used to enhance your smile’s appearance rather than treat specific issues like decay. But if you do have a tooth that needs to be repaired, we can use cosmetic materials to design a crown or filling that blends in and makes your smile look whole again. If you’re considering cosmetic treatment, talk to our Calgary dentist about which order the procedures should be completed in. You don’t want to make your existing dental work stand out! Instead, we can help you create a plan that optimizes your natural characteristics and reduces the need for extra treatment in the future.

How do I find a dentist?

When you’re looking for a new dentist near you, start out by asking the people around you where they go. Is there a certain family or cosmetic dentist that they really like? Next, find out if the office takes your insurance or offers the type of procedures that you’re looking for. For example, if you want dental implants does the dentist offer them in-house or do they refer you out to a specialist somewhere else?

Then, check to see when the office is open. Are there flexible scheduling options that fit with your busy routine? What if you need to book multiple family members, too? Will the office allow you to schedule a brief tour of the practice, or a short consult, to get a feel for their facility and find out if it’s a good fit?

Finally, make an appointment. Use this initial visit as a test drive to see how the office is run, how friendly the staff are, and how attentive the dentist is. Do they listen to your concerns? Do they offer various options instead of making you feel forced into a specific treatment? Always go with your gut!

Can I see a dentist without insurance?

Absolutely. Dental insurance is a nice benefit to have, but it’s not required to see a dentist if you require services. In fact, paying to see a dentist every six months for routine preventative care can help you limit the amount of dental care costs in the future! Since most dental problems are preventable, regular checkups are a smart investment to make. If you add dental insurance at any time, just be sure to bring a copy of your card to our Calgary dentist’s office. That way we can file claims on your behalf and limit any out of pocket expenses. Understanding the price of dental care and the different type of treatment options available can help you stay in your budget and keep expenses to a minimum. If you require any type of therapeutic or restorative care, our Calgary dentist will review all of the options available with you so that you can make an educated decision about your smile’s future. For more information about the cost of dental treatments without insurance, be sure to give our office a call!
