Services

We provide quality, professional dental care to our patients. Whether it is a simple teeth cleaning, whitening, veneers, dental implants or emergency dentistry, we have a host of services under a professional staff that will ensure your satisfaction.

Services We Offer You:

1 Visit CEREC Crown Procedures

Traditionally, teeth requiring crowns or bridges require two visits. The first visit to prepare and take models for the lab and the second visit to place the restorations.

With our in office CEREC machine we are able to fabricate and place a crown in the same day! Check with our dentists to see if this option is for you.

Dental Hygiene and Preventative Dentistry

Regular visits with our hygienists will help keep your smile bright and healthy. Our gentle hygienists will help you determine the best schedule for cleanings based on your specific needs.

We are firm believers in prevention and want you to keep your teeth for a lifetime. We offer advice, instruction and treatments that can help protect teeth from potential problems such as decay, sensitivity and excessive wear.

Teeth Whitening Procedures

Years ago, it used to take multiple crowns or veneers to achieve a brighter smile. These days it can be achieved very easily and with a simple bleaching procedure. This safe and effective treatment can lighten natural tooth structure to give you that whiter smile without the high cost of alternative treatments. The procedure can be done at home for minutes a day, or in our office for those who would like it done more quickly.

Ask our dentists if you are a candidate for this easy treatment.

Emergency Dentistry

Sometimes a tooth can chip right at the worst time, or worse, a tooth can ache and give you a sleepless night.

For patients at Heritage Dental Centre, we are usually just a phone call away.

We always try to allow time in our schedules to get you seen promptly. For new patients to our clinic, we are happy to schedule you in to our regular work week to get you comfortable fast.

Periodontics

The importance of gum health cannot be overstated. There is a constant battle between the bacteria in our mouth and the resistance. Bleeding gums are often a sign that the bacteria are winning. We try to tip the odds in your favour by helping you establish the best gum health possible. The effects of good gum health reach further than your mouth as your whole body receives the benefits.

There is a strong link between gum disease, diabetes, heart disease and other long term health issues.

Our dentists and dental hygienists will customize a treatment plan to best fit your needs.

Dental Implants, Bridges and Dentures

It’s no fun when you have a missing tooth, but there are a few ways to fill in that gap!

Dental implants are the Cadillac of treatments for missing teeth. A titanium root shaped fixture is placed where the old root was positioned and then a ceramic tooth is attached to the top of it. No need to do anything with adjacent teeth as implants are freestanding and just like the old teeth.

Implants can be used to support many teeth, or even removeable dentures.

Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth when there are suitable adjacent teeth to use as supports. These are cemented in and are permanent.

Removeable dentures can replace from one to thirty two teeth and rely on clips to adjacent teeth, or in the case of complete dentures, a good suction fit or adhesive.

Find out which way works best for you requires a thorough look at your unique situation. We would be happy to offer you our thoughts on the matter!

Root Canal Treatment

Eek! The sound of ‘root canal treatment’ conjures up many a story to keep you awake at night. The truth of the matter is the horror stories are very rare, and it is more common for people to have a good rest or even a snooze while they are done.

If a nerve is causing discomfort or has the potential to produce a serious infection, often the most practical treatment is to remove the nerve and seal the space with a filling. These procedures are more than 90% successful and allow you to keep your tooth for years to come. Of course there may be situations where it’s impractical to keep a tooth, and other treatments are preferable.

The dentist will be happy to discuss the alternatives for your unhappy tooth with you.

Crowns, Veneers and Bonding

A tooth may break and require more than a filling. That is when we consider a crown restoration for your tooth. This restoration completely covers the top of your tooth and protects it from further damage. Crowns can be made of ceramic, metal or a combination of both. Some indications for crowns would be teeth that have had root canal treatment, teeth with fractures or missing cusps, or teeth with very large restorations or excessive wear.

Veneers can enhance your smile with minimal or sometimes no tooth preparation required. They are thin porcelain coverings that can change the color and shape of front teeth.

Bonding with white filling material can quickly repair small to large tooth imperfections in just a single visit. It is less durable than crowns or veneers.

Ask our dentist which option would work best for you.

Night Guards and Sports Guards

Prevention is an important part of our practice. Sports guards help not only to protect your teeth from injury, but also to protect your jaw joints and brain from injury. They are a must if you play any sport more physical than checkers.

You never know when that elbow is coming!

Night Guards help protect and preserve teeth from destructive clenching and grinding forces that occur mostly during sleep. Our dentists will look for tell-tale signs of these habits, and discuss whether you need to join the secret legions of night guard wearers!

Digital X-rays and Diagnostics


We strive to get the radiographic information we need for proper treatment using the least amount of x-rays possible. Digital x-rays are easy to see on our computer screens and require just a fraction of the regular exposure.

You will be able to check out your own x-rays with the dentist just seconds they are taken. This is just one of the great strides in dental technology along with white fillings and at home bleaching.

Specialist Referrals and Treatment Planning

We are lucky in Calgary to have some of the most talented specialists in North America. When we determine what your needs are dentally, sometimes it will involve a specialist to have the best results possible. We are not beholden to any one particular treatment style and will provide you with alternative treatment options, along with their benefits and limitations, in order to meet your needs.
