Full Service General & Cosmetic Dentistry from Your Family Dentist in Collingwood
At Dr. Jennie Ly’s Office, we know that it can be difficult trying to find a dental office that can accommodate the whole family. That’s why we offer full service general family and cosmetic dentistry to residents throughout Collingwood. Our family dentist Dr. Jennie Ly has experience in a wide array of dental services including, but not limited to:
Regular dental visits are one way to help prevent more severe dental health problems from developing. Our preventative dentistry includes cleanings that remove plaque and stains that you may not be able to remove yourself with regular brushing. We provide x-rays in order to view potential dental issues that may not be visible to the naked eye.
Through restorative dentistry, we diagnose and treat diseases and other issues that affect your teeth as well as the supporting structures like your gums. Restorative dentistry services can range from placing crowns and bridges to inserting dental implants and performing root canal therapy. Each person is different, and our family dentist will work with you to find the restorative treatment that works best for your situation.
While a healthy smile is important, you may want to improve the overall aesthetic of your smile as well. Cosmetic dentistry helps you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted with services including teeth whitening, tooth reshaping, bonding, dental bridges and crowns, veneers, and more. Talk to your family dentist today to discuss whether or not a smile makeover is right for you.
Teeth Whitening with Zoom!®
Teeth whitening procedures have become a popular service at dentist offices. It’s natural for your teeth to dim in colour as the years go by. Factors like drinking coffee, tea, or red wine as well as tobacco use can discolour your teeth further. Our family dentist uses a Zoom Teeth Whitening treatment, placing a gel over the teeth that helps break up stains and discolouration when activated by a special light.
Dental Implants with Nobel Biocare®
Dental implants provide stronger foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth and other features. A dental implant may be needed to place a crown or support a dental bridge. Dental implants can also help support dentures, improving a person’s speech, appearance, and comfort since the dentures will no longer be slipping around. Discover more dental implant benefits by contacting our family dentist. We use Nobel Biocare dental implants at our office.
Some patients dread going to the dentist. Their anxiety of pain, needles, or any type of dental work often prevents them from keeping routine appointments with their family dentist. That’s why we offer sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry can help calm anxious patients allowing them to get the dental work they need in a calm and relaxing environment.
Root Canal Therapy
When cavities and cracked fillings allow bacteria to get inside your tooth, it may infect the soft pulp within. Once infected, pain and swelling may occur which could lead to more severe oral health issues or the need for the tooth to be pulled. A root canal involves removing the damaged or diseased pulp from inside the infected tooth, cleaning and disinfecting the root canal system, filling the canal, and sealing the tooth opening.
Invisalign® - Invisible Braces
When it comes to straightening your teeth, you no longer have to rely on traditional braces. Invisalign® offers an alternative to traditional metal braces by using custom-made aligners. These smooth, plastic aligners are placed over your teeth which gradually shift them into the desired position. Your aligners are changed about every two weeks to advance the treatment.
