Lumineers are very thin Cerinate porcelain veneers. This technology offers a painless way to a permanently whiter and perfectly aligned smile. Lumineers are applied to teeth without any grinding of your teeth, transforming them into a naturally beautiful smile that looks perfect for every individual. Lumineers can even be placed over existing crown or bridgework without having to replace them.
Porcelain Veneers are the most revolutionary advancement in Cosmetic dentistry. They are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the outer surface of your teeth to transform misaligned, crowded, broken, discoloured or misshapen teeth to dazzling pearly whites with perfect shape. It is a blend of art and science that enables a skilled practitioner to achieve a sensational effect.
If you are unhappy with your smile Porcelain Veneers can make your dreams come true!
Crowns & Bridges
If your teeth are broken down considerably then veneers may not be the good option. Porcelain crowns offer greater strength and durability than veneers. With the latest advancements in ceramic technology we now offer our clients “Metal free” ceramic crowns which are much superior in aesthetics than the porcelain fused to metal crowns that was used earlier.
We offer different systems of teeth whitening which include in-office whitening as well as custom take home trays.
Root Canal Treatment
WHAT IS ROOT CANAL TREATMENT? (RCT)
To understand Root Canal treatment, it helps to know something about the anatomy of the tooth. Inside the tooth, under the white enamel and a hard layer called the dentin, is a soft tissue called the pulp. The pulp contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue and creates the surrounding hard tissues of the tooth during development.
The pulp extends from the crown of the tooth to the tip of the roots where it connects to the tissues surrounding the root. The pulp is important during a tooth’s growth and development. However, once a tooth is fully mature, it can survive without pulp, because the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it.
WHY WOULD I NEED (RCT) PROCEDURE?
It is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes: deep decay repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth.
WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF NEEDING ROOT CANAL TREATMENT?
Signs to look for include pain, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, tenderness to touch and chewing, discoloration of the tooth, swelling, drainage and tenderness in the lymph nodes as well as nearby bone and gingival tissues.
HOW DOES ROOT CANAL TREATMENT SAVE THE TOOTH?
The dentist removes the inflamed or infected pulp, carefully cleans and shapes the inside of the canal, a channel inside the root, then fills and seals the space. Afterwards, the dentist will place a crown or other restoration on the tooth to protect and restore it to full function. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth.
Starting to see the dentist as early ages of 6 months can help prevent cavities and create a healthy mouth. Healthy eating habits lead to healthy teeth. Like the rest of the body, the teeth, bones and the soft tissues of the mouth need a well balanced diet. Regular visits to a dentist motivate the child in keeping their mouth clean.

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, your doctor will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other treatment. Sometimes, though, there’s too much damage for the tooth to be repaired. This is the most common reason for extracting a tooth.
Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as one’s natural teeth, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.
There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. We will help you choose the type of denture that’s best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.
Sedation Dentistry refers to the use of sedative drugs that safely calm and relax a patient prior to and during a dental procedure. We provide sedation dentistry to our patients through the use of safe sedative medications that are inhaled or ingested by the patient. Our goal is to reach a safe level of minimal or moderate sedation during which a patient is able to respond to purposeful stimulation and exhibit signs of consciousness but feels that they are in a sleep/dream-like state during their appointment.
Straight healthy teeth are important for proper function of our teeth. Early intervention to common crooked teeth are routinely assessed at every appointment.
Cypress Smiles Dental offers Advanced Orthodontic treatment for children and adults. Our Team of doctors are very well experienced and offer comprehensive orthodontics using the latest techniques available now.
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
Ceramic braces are made of a clear ceramic material, and are therefore less obvious on your teeth than metal braces. The newer ceramic brackets are very strong, hence do not break very easily as compared to the previous ones.
