Brighten Your Smile with Teeth Whitening

August 15, 2014

137110504From bent book spines to scratches on cars, everything in life goes through wear and tear. No matter much we may want things to stay in absolute perfect condition, unfortunately, that never happens. The same thing goes for your smile. A chip here and a gap there can really affect the overall aesthetic of your smile, and can cause you to feel insecure about the way you look. A smile is a way we show friendliness and communicate with others, and if it is in less than perfect condition, it can affect the way you interact with the people around you as well as the way we feel about ourselves. Our smiles accumulate stains over time, dulling our smiles, making it appear lackluster and unappealing. Luckily, our experienced and talented doctors are able to whiten your smile using teeth whitening at their Brampton, Ontario dental office.

There are many things that can affect the brightness of your smile. From coffee, tea, and wine to certain medications, tobacco products and natural aging, our smiles are almost always exposed to things that will take the whiteness away. We offer a couple of teeth whitening options to our patients, making sure they receive the treatment that is best and most convenient for them. The first is in-office whitening. When you come in for your teeth whitening appointment at our dental office, we will put a whitening gel over your smile, and in about an hour, your smile is up to ten shades whiter! This is a great option for those who want to whiten their smiles during their lunch break and for people who have a busy schedule.

The second form we offer is at-home teeth whitening, which is a more gradual way to whiten your smile. We will supply you with custom-made whitening trays, fitting your smile like a glove. This ensures that your results are amazing, and it makes your treatment completely personalized to you. We will also provide the professional grade whitening gel to you. All you need to do is fill the trays with the whitening gel and wear them for a certain amount of time each day. In about two weeks, you will see the full results! If you would like our doctors’ help in whitening your smile with teeth whitening, contact our office today!

Root Canal Therapy: Helping Preserve Your Natural Teeth with Advanced Dental Technology

May 11, 2014

Shutterstock Mouth PainWhen a tooth is affected by decay and the nerve-filled pulp within becomes infected, root canal treatment may be prescribed in order to avoid the need for extraction. At Torbram Dental in Brampton, Ontario, Dr. Vince Fava and Dr. Summer Al Maqdassy specialize in a variety of restorative dental procedures to help keep your natural teeth as healthy as possible, including root canal therapy.

How Do I Know if I Need Root Canal Treatment?

Although only a consultation with our doctors will definitively determine which restorative dentistry treatment is right for you, there are some signs that you may notice that indicate the need for treatment. These include the following:

  • Pain and/or swelling in the gum tissue surrounding a specific tooth
  • A toothache that does not subside
  • Increased sensitivity to hot or cold
  • A tooth that becomes discolored, usually a dark gray

It is important to remember that not all teeth in need of root canal therapy exhibit symptoms. An exam with x-rays will help in your diagnosis.

If a root canal treatment is necessary, our doctors will prepare the area around the affected tooth and ensure that you are completely comfortable before beginning. The infected pulp of the tooth will be removed and the entire cavity will be cleaned of any residual bacteria. This cavity will then be filled with a biocompatible material and the entire tooth will be capped with a customized dental crown. Because we use CEREC one-day crown technology, you won’t have to wait for weeks wearing a temporary before your restoration is complete.

Keeping Your Natural Teeth Healthy and Strong

If you suspect that you or someone in your family may be in need of root canal therapy, please don’t hesitate to contact our office to schedule your appointment. Like many other issues that require dental or medical attention, an infection of the tooth’s root is most successfully and comfortably treated when it is diagnosed early. Call today to reserve your visit for an examination; we look forward to helping you explore your dental care options in a way that suits your individual case and lifestyle. Our family-friendly office in Brampton, Ontario, CA proudly serves patients from throughout the surrounding areas as well, including Woodbridge, Mississauga, Georgetown, and more.

CEREC One-Visit Crowns in Ontario, CA: Beautiful Restorations in a Single Day

April 10, 2014

Shutterstock Happy Dental Patient (2)The placement of crowns is among the most commonly performed restorative dentistry procedures today, offering structural stability to a tooth that has succumbed to decay or undergone root canal therapy. Crowns are also used to complete dental implant restorations, replacing missing teeth to rebuild an incomplete smile. At Torbram Dental in Brampton, Ontario, Dr. Vince Fava and Dr. Summer Al Maqdassy offer our patients the benefits of revolutionary CEREC technology for custom crowns in a single appointment.

Benefits of CEREC Restorations

Though dental crowns have been used to repair and restore teeth for many, many years, the process by which they are created and placed has changed dramatically. Previously, messy impression materials were needed to capture the dimensions of your teeth; this process was by no means very convenient, nor was it always completely accurate. After impressions were taken, the molds were sent off to a separate laboratory so that a personalized crown could be made. This meant the patient had to be fitted with a temporary crown while they waited, sometimes for weeks, for their restoration to arrive.

Today, with the help of CEREC technology, our doctors are able to take digital impressions of your dentition in a matter of minutes and create your customized crown right here in our state-of-the-art facility. You don’t need to leave and come back – the CEREC machine mills your beautiful restoration right here while you sit back and relax in our comfortable office. We will then place your crown and make any minor adjustments necessary. You’ll leave with a gorgeous new crown and a complete smile after just one visit!

Schedule Your Consultation Today

Whether you currently have a crown and require a replacement or you will be soon undergoing a procedure that requires the placement of a custom restoration, the experienced dental team at Torbram Dental is here to help. Contact our office today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Vince Fava and Dr. Summer Al Maqdassy. We look forward to showing you what a difference our advanced technology and extensive knowledge can make in your life. Our conveniently located practice happily welcomes patients from throughout the Brampton area, as well as surrounding communities in Georgetown, Mississauga, Woodbridge, and beyond.

Achieve a Flawless Smile with Porcelain Veneers at Torbram Dental

March 18, 2014

Happy couple smiling brightlyYour smile speaks volumes about who you are and how you feel, conveying a sense of health, happiness, confidence, and charm. If your teeth are less than perfect, however, you may feel hesitant to share your true smile with the people who matter most. At Torbram Dental in Brampton, Ontario, CA, Dr. Vince Fava and Dr. Summer Al Maqdassy help patients just like you achieve the beautiful, flawless smile they want and deserve with cosmetic dentistry solutions like porcelain veneers.

Are Porcelain Veneers Right for Me?

A one-on-one consultation with our skilled dental professionals will help determine if porcelain veneers are the right cosmetic option for your particular case. Also called dental veneers, these ultra-thin sheaths of durable porcelain effectively correct a number of common dental blemishes, including the following:

  • Chips and cracks in enamel
  • Deep-set stains and yellowing that are resistant to traditional whitening treatments
  • Uneven spacing between teeth
  • Unsightly gaps
  • Misalignment and moderate crowding
  • Teeth that are too large or too small relative to surrounding teeth
  • Misshapen teeth

If our doctors find that porcelain veneers are a good fit for your unique situation, we’ll move forward with the process. A minimal amount of surface enamel will be gently removed from your teeth in order to make room for your veneers. An impression will then be taken in order to achieve a natural, comfortable fit. Within as little as two visits to our office, you’ll enjoy a brand new smile that looks and feels completely flawless, allowing you to smile once again with utter confidence.

Schedule Your Consultation Today!

If you’ve spent far too long hiding your smile from others because you’re concerned about the appearance of your teeth, contact our office in Brampton, Ontario today and schedule your appointment. Our doctors also happily welcome patients from nearby communities in Georgetown, Woodbridge, Mississauga, and beyond. We look forward to giving you the bright, beautiful smile you deserve!

How Gum Grafting and Lifts Can Change Your Smile!

January 15, 2014

shutterstock_146387729One of the keys to a healthy smile is healthy gums. Though many people don’t think gums play a crucial role in the health and appearance of your smile, nothing could be more untrue. At Torbram Dental, we understand how your gums can change the look of your smile, and how some people are unhappy with the look of their gums. Because we are away of these things, Drs. Vince Fava and Summer Al Maqdassy is able to offer gum grafting and lifts to their patients.

There are many reasons gums recede, including genetics, gum disease, tobacco use, and brushing your teeth too hard. Even though it may not seem like a big deal, severe gum recession can lead to a number of problems, including jaw bone infection due to harmful bacteria having easy access. Because your gums help keep your teeth in place, excessive gum recession can even lead to tooth loss. With gum grafting, our very talented doctors will be able to replace your missing gum tissue by taking tissue from the roof of your mouth then stitched in place. If your gum tissue is healthy enough, tissue can be removed from that area as well.

Gum lifts are the exact opposite of grafting. Many people complain about having a “gummy” smile, meaning they have too much gum tissue surrounding their teeth. A gum lift is able to lengthen the appearance of your teeth by removing excess gum tissue. Gum lifts are also a good option for people to feel as though their gum line is uneven.

If you feel as though our experienced doctors and team will be able to help you in improving the look of your smile, call our office and make an appointment. We’d be more than happy to help you with whatever you may need!

Dr. Fava and Your Children's Teeth

December 4, 2013

shutterstock_118749670At Torbram Dental, we emphasize the importance of your child’s teeth, and Dr. Vince Fava is ready and able to start your child off in the right direction. We understand that some children may have anxieties visiting dentists, which is why knowledgeable team is ready to welcome them with open arms and friendly smiles.

Child dentistry is very important as it helps prevent problems before they arise as well as sets up your child for success in the future. Common practices in children’s dentistry are dental sealants. Because a child’s tooth is more susceptible to cavities and decay, sealants grant protection by having a plastic covering painted in the grooves of the tooth to save from harm in the future. Sealants are primarily applied to premolars and permanent molars, given the grooves are deeper than the other teeth and more susceptible to deterioration.

Along with sealants, fluoride treatments are also involved in child dentistry. Fluoride plays a part in preventing decay as well as acts as a magnet for attracting other minerals, like Calcium and Phosphate, to build strong teeth. Although fluoride does not prevent cavities from emerging, it may delay their arrival, giving your child a better chance to have beautiful, healthy teeth. Beginning routine brushing and flossing habits early on is a sure way of having your child’s smile be as beautiful as possible, and  Dr. Fava as well as the Torbram Dental team are here to make sure your child has an awesome experience.

If you have dental insurance, now is the time to make sure you’ve taken advantage of your benefits for the year.

Laser Dentistry in Brampton, Mississauga, Georgetown and Woodbridge

September 24, 2013

laser dentistryLaser dentistry is an important technology available in the modern dentist’s office. This technology allows your dentist to provide an improved level of comfort and care. Today more dentists than ever before use laser dentistry in their practice, so you can find a dentist near you that offers this technology.

A laser is a focused wavelength of light energy that can be used in a variety of applications. Even a standard procedure such as filling a cavity can be improved by the use of dental lasers. The laser is used to prepare the tooth for the filling by removing the decay without using a drill that can often cause discomfort. Also, laser dentistry allows more of the natural tooth structure to remain because it is a highly focused, precise beam of light that allows your dentist to only remove the decay. Also, there isn’t a risk of cracks which sometimes goes alongside the use of a dental drill.

Your dentist is committed to using the latest technology to improve the patient experience. Laser dentistry is a great way for your dentist to improve your comfort while providing you with the necessary dental treatment to ensure a healthy smile. Give your dentist a call today to learn more and see how laser dentistry can improve your smile.
