Dental Exam & Cleaning
Having excellent oral hygiene is not only important for maintaining a nice smile, but for your overall health as well. Gum diseases and periodontal disease can lead to other heath related issues such as heart disease and stroke.
We can help you prevent dental health issues before they become larger problems. Routine cleanings rid the mouth of harmful plaque and bacteria, so you can maintain a healthy smile.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom tooth extraction is a common surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth. If a wisdom tooth doesn't have room to grow (impacted wisdom tooth), resulting in pain, infection or other dental problems, you'll likely need to have it pulled. Early removal is usually recommended to avoid such issues and to lower the surgical risk.
Root canal therapy can save a tooth that has become severely infected or decayed. Inflammation or infection of teeth can have a variety of causes: deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. If inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess. Signs that a root canal may be needed include prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, discoloration of the tooth and swollen or tender gums.
Amalgam Free Fillings
At Monarch Dentistry we offer mercury-free amalgam fillings. Amalgam-free alternatives are available for many dental techniques, including fillings and crowns. Best of all, if you need more difficult treatments like a root canal or implants, we will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan that is mercury-free.
Bonding is a treatment that can be used to restore decayed, chipped, fractured or discolored teeth. Our dentists at Monarch Dentistry can help you find the perfect shade to mimic the appearance of your natural teeth and keep consistency in your smile. Cosmetic bonding is an option for people of every age, along with children, to fix small chips, close small gaps and provide erosion spots.
Veneers are sturdy, thin pieces of porcelain which are bonded to the teeth. They’re used to repair chipped, decayed or stained teeth and aid in closing gaps between teeth. With a little bit of contouring, veneers may additionally correct teeth that are slightly crowded or overlapping.
Crowns and Caps
A crown or cap is a cover that fits over a tooth that’s been broken, badly stained, damaged by rot or mis-shaped. A crown might be made of acrylic, metal, porcelain, or porcelain bonded to metal. All-porcelain crowns have the look of natural teeth, and are typically used for front teeth, while porcelain bonded to metal is commonly used for crowns in the rear of the mouth. Occasionally all-metal crowns are used for back teeth.
Porcelain Inlays and Onlays
Porcelain inlays and onlays are an excellent option of treatment for restoring weak teeth and for restoring more visible tooth surfaces. They offer an alternative to traditional composite fillings. Inlays and onlays offer the safety and strength of a crown without the need for substantial teeth guidance. They are custom designed to suit your enamel form and colour and are stronger and more durable than composite restorations.
If you have missing teeth or teeth that have become loose, dentures are a removable option to restore your smile. Monarch dentistry provides complete denture services including full and partial dentures, denture repairs and denture implants.
Looking after your dentures and properly cleanings and caring for them is very important. After you receive your dentures, our dental team will provide you with full denture care instructions.
Bridges and Dental Implants
If you are missing a tooth — or multiple teeth —dental implants are a permanent solution. Dental implants are metal posts that are surgically placed beneath your gums into the jawbone to provide a stable support for artificial teeth. After a few months, when the implants are fused to the surrounding bone, the artificial tooth is then attached, and the missing tooth is restored. Our implant dentists able to provide you with affordable dental implants and implant dentistry solutions.
A fixed bridge is a semi-permanent option for replacing missing teeth if implants are not the right option for you. It is called a “bridge” as it covers a gap, consisting of one or multiple crowns spanning the gap between remaining teeth.
