Our Ask the Doctor Column this week by provided by Dr Ghorbanpour
I’m interested in changing the shape of my teeth. What options are available?
There are several options available in order to change the shape of one’s teeth.
1)     Bonding- Bonding is the most conservative way of modifying the shape of teeth. This option will involve adding tooth-colored resin to the surface of the tooth to improve its appearance. Bonding can be used to close gaps, modify the contour or shape of the tooth or cover any imperfections on the surface of the tooth.
2)     Recontouring- Recontouring involves removing a small amount of tooth enamel to fix minor imperfections such as modifying the shape or contour of a tooth or repairing a small chip.
3)     Veneer- Veneer is a very thin shell made of porcelain that is bonded to the front surface of teeth to improve esthetics or make modification to the shape of teeth. Tooth is prepared very conservatively to make room for the veneer. The veneer is fabricated by a dental laboratory and is later bonded to the tooth. At least two appointments are required to complete a veneer.
4)     Crown- Crown is the most invasive option to change the shape of teeth. This procedure involves preparation of all surfaces of the tooth to make room for the “cap” to be placed over the tooth.  Crowns are made of all porcelain or porcelain fused to metal. The crown is also fabricated by a dental laboratory, and is later bonded to the tooth. Major modifications to the shape of the teeth or other imperfection are best accomplished with a dental crown.  At least two appointments are required to complete a crown.
To find out which option best suits you please call our office at 905-775-0075, 905-476-3343, 519-941-4447 and 519-541-0505
Thank you

Chewing gum is thought to be the world’s oldest candy — we’ve
 been chomping down on it for more than 5,000 years! But what do dentists think of all that chewing? While the people who care for our teeth aren’t usually fans of candy, when it comes to sugarless
 gum, most dentists give it the nod. “Chewing sugarless gum is a great way to help stimulate saliva flow in patients with dry mouth,” says Dr. Deborah Saunders, Your Oral Health.ca’s Editor-in-Chief. That salivary stimulation also helps protect your teeth from decay-causing bacteria, so if you aren’t able to brush your teeth after eating, chewing sugarless gum can help.

Chris we apologize for any miscommunication that may have taken place.  Unfortunately due to the privacy act and our overseeing college we are limited on the information we can access.  
We would never want you to exceed your budget without a heads up so on our end we will provide estimates for work if requested.  We really wish to help more for insurance but we occasionally will need your assistance in contacting the company to gather information in regards to coverage.
Again we apologize for any miscommunication that may have taken place and we wold love to see you again in the future.
Thank You

Horrible experience. As a student I informed RiverEdge what was my insurance policies limit prior to going for a toot extraction. I even avoided having a cavity filled at that time as being a student I did not have the money to pay for anything outside of what my insurance would cover. RiverEdge assured and reassured me that they would not go over what my insurance policy would cover.

And guess what? 8 months after receiving treatment, the following calendar year I start receiving $50 bills from RiverEdge for a "complicated tooth extraction". I was intending on returning for all my dental needs, as the staff were friendly, however this type of conduct is completely unacceptable. NOT once did RiverEdge try and contact me by phone, and the fact they send you mail 8 months afterwards looking for money is appalling.

They did the same thing with a family friend, and one of my family members. I even tried contacting them but never received a return call, instead the report $50 to a collection agency. Well, guess what RiverEdge…Keswick is a small town and word travels fast. I'll be sure to share this story with everyone I know, and NOT recommend RiverEdge to anyone. It's unfortunate, because $50 easily could've been settled had you contacted me by phone . Instead you go after a student almost a year after visiting your establishment and report them to a collection? over $50… Way to loose what would've been a lifetime client, and a far more lucrative amount than $50.

It's unfortunate because I finally found a place that appeared to have good service. Clearly it's just about every penny in the end.
