Frequently Asked Dental Questions - Billings Bridge Dental Centre

General and Cosmetic Dental Procedure Questions

At Billings Bridge Dental Centre, our dental professionals not only treat patients, but also strive to educate them. On this page we have included some of the most frequently asked questions patients have about general dentistry, oral health issues, and cosmetic dentistry procedures. We have included information on oral hygiene, periodontal disease, and even explained how cosmetic dentistry can improve the look of your smile with treatment options such as dental crowns, veneers, and teeth whitening. If you feel self-conscious about your teeth and are looking to improve your smile, you may wish to speak to one of our dental professions regarding dental restorations such as dental crowns, veneers, or dental implants. We hope these questions will help you to determine the best treatment options for you. 

If you have any questions, would like to discuss any of these options further with one of our dental professionals, or would like to schedule a dental appointment, please contact our Ottawa dental centre.
