Tooth colored restorations
Advances in white filling materials means more varied applications are available, including repairing chipped or broken front teeth, covering unsightly marks on teeth, enhancing the shape of front teeth or simply used as a filling material on back teeth. At Pearl Radiance Studio , we are using amalgam free fillings (containing no mercury) for health as well as cosmetic reasons. The color range of the material has greatly improved, enabling us to obtain a good colour match to your existing teeth. At Pearl Radiance Studio, we think that a perfect smile should go beyond your front teeth, all the way to the back of your mouth to allow you to smile broadly or laugh out loud without worrying about your unsightly metal fillings or crowns.
Root canal therapy
Root canal therapy is a sequence of treatment for the nerve of a tooth in order to eliminate infection and to protect the tooth from future bacterial attacks. The procedure involves removal of the nerve tissue, blood vessels and other cells from within the root of a tooth, the cleaning, shaping and decontamination of these root canal with tiny files and irrigating solutions and then filling, of the cleaned out canals with an inert filling, such as gutta percha and a cement. After the surgery the tooth will be “dead”, and if the infection is spread at apex, root end surgery is required. After a root canal treatment, the tooth looses all of its natural hydration from the nerve and blood vessels and becomes very brittle. This can make a tooth more prone to fracture especially if the tooth is a molar where most of the biting forces are concentrated. For this reason, our dentists usually recommend a crown to protect teeth that have undergone root canal treatment. The procedure is relatively painless, because our dentists use anesthetics during process.

A mouthguard (also known as a mouth protector, mouth piece or gumshield) is a protective device for the mouth that covers the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, arches, lips and gums. They reduce the risk of broken or lost teeth and other mouth injuries such as lacerations in the inside of the mouth. Mouth guards are stiff, cushioned molds
What is TMJ Disorder? TMJ Disorder (temporomandibular joint disorder) is a catch all term used to describe dysfunction of the jaw muscles and joints. TMJ disorder affects people of all ages and impacts approximately 5% of the population. The condition can result in the misalignment or displacement of the jaw which places stress on the nerves, blood vessels, muscles and connecting tissues of the TM joints. When the condition is prolonged, your body may begin to compensate by adapting an unnatural position involving the muscles of the neck, back or even the arms and pelvis.
Symptoms of TMJ Disorder can present as: clicking or popping sensations with the movement of your jaw joints, pain when the mouth is opened or limited range of opening, clenching or grinding teeth, facial pain and a sense of facial muscle fatigue, ear pain not caused by ear infection, occasional locking when jaw opened, frequent headaches and shoulder pain that affects posture and even mobility.
Crowns and bridges
Using the latest in CAD/CAM technology we can save you time and money when it comes to crowns, bridges and veneers. Crowns are made from materials like porcelain and ceramic, crowns and bridges are engineered and coloured to match your teeth for a natural appearance.
Crowns are typically used to reinforce the structure of the tooth to provide aesthetics with stability and function. Bridges are made up of three or more crowns that are attached together as one unit. Bridges are mainly used to replace missing teeth and gaps within your smile. Crowns and bridges can greatly improve the appearance and function of your teeth. They strengthen cracked or weak teeth to prevent further damage and can also help to retain spaces left by missing teeth.
Various types of dentures are available and the cost is dependent on the quality of the teeth and other materials used. By adding character to the teeth and the pink gum, a much more aesthetic result can be achieved. Many dentures are made with materials that have no character in them, be it the actual teeth or the pink gum.

What are implants? implants are one way of replacing missing teeth. A post is planted in the jaw bone to support a replacement tooth. This acts like the root of a natural tooth. Implants can also be used to support fixed bridges or dentures. Implant treatment normally has two stages. First, the implant is placed in the jaw. Then, when the jaw has healed, replacement teeth are attached to the implant. In some situations, it is possible for temporary teeth to be attached to an implant at the time of fitting. Would implants be right for me? First, you should decide whether implants could be right for you.
