Having straight teeth is important for both your health & appearance. We perform a thorough assessment of your teeth with an emphasis on early treatment. We place a high priority on finding the best way to correct teeth that are misaligned as well as jaw position problems. We will implement a program with the appropriate appliance to help normalize the growth of jaws & they reduce the need for extractions of teeth. The earlier we begin treatment, the better chance we have for success.
Did you know that the days when tooth ailments & cavities could only be treated with unsightly metal fillings are gone? Today, modern tooth-coloured fillings made of durable resin or porcelain can be bonded to your teeth for a stronger, more natural-looking effect. These revolutionary fillings are virtually undetectable & are easy to apply.
Dental implants are man-made replacements for natural teeth. The implants themselves are artificial tooth roots anchored in the gum or jawbone, on which replacement teeth are permanently secured. Since implanted teeth are fixed in the mouth rather than being removable like dentures, they allow a return to the comfort & function of natural teeth. Increased chewing ability means you can enjoy more nutritious foods, contributing to your overall health & well-being. In short, dental implants improve the quality of your life. They can improve your appearance, boost your self-confidence & allow you to speak with greater clarity.

Crowns cover & support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth left. They can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that’s already broken. A crown, also called a cap, is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped as well, or to cover a dental implant. A crown can make your tooth stronger & improve its appearance.
There are several types of crowns, including porcelain, ceramic, resin & metal alloys. The material used can be altered to match the color of your teeth. Our primary concern is keeping your smile bright & healthy, so ask Dr. Smith which type is right for you!
Getting a crown takes two steps: First, we prepare the tooth by taking x-rays & pictures to check the surrounding bone & tissue & filing down the tooth to make room for the crown. Then the crown is made & cemented into place.
A crown acts the same way as a tooth, so after your crowns are placed, you should treat it the same way as well. Continue to brush & floss regularly & see your dentist for regular checkups!

Searching for the right orthodontics choice in Burlington? Lakeside Family Dental may have the answer! We are proud to offer Fastbraces, an orthodontic option for both adults & children.
Fastbraces work differently than traditional braces. Ordinarily, orthodontic devices first move tooth roots & then crowns in a long, multi-step process. The unique design of Fastbraces enables us to move those roots & crowns at the same time, drastically reducing treatment time. With Fastbraces, you can expect to find success in months, not years.
We want you to have that perfect smile. Contact Lakeside Family Dental today to set up a free Fastbraces consultation. Together, we can decide if Fastbraces are exactly what you’ve been searching for. It could be that you & Fastbraces are the perfect fit!

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 esthetics, but also your oral health. In addition to allowing you to eat as if you never lost your teeth, dentures protect against facial sagging that would otherwise occur & give you a more aged appearance, as well as promote your natural speech. Denture maintenance, combined with a regular regiment of proper brushing, can guarantee you a comfortable, healthy mouth for the rest of your life.
