What is Gum Disease?
Gum disease is a bacterial infection in the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. There are two stages of gum disease – gingivitis and periodontitis.
Gum disease is considered a silent but deadly dental problem. It can go on for years without pain. Early detection and adequate diagnosis are crucial for the prevention and treatment of gum disease.
Gum disease is preventable. Start your oral hygiene program today with us here at Smart Smile Dental.

My teeth are misaligned or have spaces. Do I need braces to fix them?
In most cases, dental braces are the best approach. In some situations, other methods can be used, such as dental veneers.
I have chipped teeth, what can you recommend?
For smaller chips, composite fillings are usually recommended. If the chips are bigger, they can be repaired with veneers or dental crowns.
Can cracked teeth heal?
Unlike fractures in some areas of the body, this type of crack will never heal. However, possible solutions for cracked teeth are tooth extraction or root canal therapy.
What is the best way to whiten teeth?
There are many different ways to whiten teeth. Some people use natural methods or over the counter whiteners to make their teeth a little bit whiter. However if you have a serious case of tooth discolouration or just want to achieve a stunning white smile, then you may be a good candidate for professional teeth whitening.
Teeth whitening systems used by dental professionals are advanced, safe, and more effective than any forms of tooth bleaching. However, if the staining has penetrated the tooth below the surface, your dentist may recommend white fillings or dental crowns to deal with heavily stained dental enamel.
