From chronic headaches to tooth pain, Villanova Dental Studio in Stittsville, ON helps patients address their dental concerns and restore health, beauty, and function to their smiles. We invite you to schedule an appointment with us so that we can thoroughly evaluate your smile and offer you a treatment plan that best meets your needs. Here are three common dental concerns that we treat, as well as some additional information on how we treat them:

Discoloured Teeth

As we age, it is completely natural for our teeth to become dull over time. This is because common foods and beverages that we consume contain staining agents that attach to our dental structures and leave behind residue. This residue can stain your teeth, age your smile, and make you self-conscious of your overall appearance. To treat discoloured teeth, Dr. Barakat and the Villanova Dental Studio team offers teeth whitening as a cosmetic dentistry solution. For effective and fast in-office teeth whitening, we use the Iveri™ teeth whitening system. The Iveri whitening system uses a dentist formulated gel containing the whitening agent hydrogen peroxide and carabamide peroxide. This treatment takes approximately twenty minutes and will remove years of discolouration from your smile.

Chipped or Cracked Teeth

Unexpected dental damages like chips or cracks can take a toll on the overall appearance and functionality of your smile. Left untreated, even minor chips and cracks can begin to interfere with the way you speak and chew. Additionally, dental damages leave the rest of your smile at a higher risk for tooth decay development and gum disease progression. This is because dental damages create new, unique angles and divots for food residue to cling to and hide behind, preventing you from effectively brushing and flossing. To fix broken teeth, Dr. Barakat offers custom made dental crowns. Our dental crowns are created to replace the entire exterior of your tooth while also helping you avoid the need for a complete tooth extraction. Villanova Dental Studio uses CEREC, state of the art CAD/CAM technology for the design and fabrication of dental crowns during just one visit.

Missing Teeth

Missing teeth are also a hazard for your overall dental health. This is because your dental structures are designed to work together while performing daily tasks like chewing or speaking. If you are missing one or more teeth, the rest of your smile must compensate for this loss. This creates new pressure points on your remaining teeth while also adding extra tension to your jawbone and facial muscles. Patients with missing teeth are more at risk for developing jaw pain issues or TMJ disorders. To help effectively replace missing, our doctors provide a variety of restorative dentistry options including dental implants. Dental implants are the premier choice when it comes to tooth replacement options. With the support of a surgically implanted titanium post, a dental implant restores the tooth-root functionality of your dental restoration.
