Your first appointment is a great opportunity for us to get to know each other. We will collect all relevant medical history to ensure your safety for dental treatment. This is also the time when we can address any immediate concerns with your oral health. This is followed by a comprehensive exam by the dentist that will provide us with a thorough understanding of the current state of your oral health.
Children need a short appointment to help familiarize them with our office. Our main goal is to provide a pleasant experience and have your children love coming to the dentist. We will also address any concerns and provide you with a complete overview of your child’s oral health.

Root Canal Treatment
A root canal procedure is needed when damage occurs to the nerve tissue inside of the tooth laying inside of the “canal”. This tissue is needed when the tooth is developing, once that is completed the tooth can survive without it. No one ever wants a root canal treatment, however, this type of treatment is often the only alternative to having the tooth removed. Not to worry, here at Dentistry at Waterview we believe strongly in practising gentle dentistry if needed we are fully certified in Nitrous and IV sedation to provide the treatment in a comfortable and efficient manner.
What happens after the root canal treatment?
If we determine that you need root canal treatment to save your tooth we will clean the inside of the tooth and seal it. Then we will advise you on the future treatments needed to save and protect the treated tooth.
Here at Dentistry at Waterview we strive to be as conservative as possible, it is the right way of doing dentistry. Sometimes fillings can be too large to withstand the forces of chewing or they are unable to cover discoloration in teeth. A crown is needed to maintain the tooth integrity to prevent further damage and cover up the discoloured tooth. Our crown have no metal in them, they are made from Porcelain or Zirconia to emulate the original shape, shade and function of the tooth and give you the confident smile you deserve!
Are you looking for that perfect white smile? Look no further than Porcelain Veneers.
Veneers will cover and perfect any teeth past their prime. They are long-lasting and will prevent any further damage caused by staining agents such as red wine, coffee, and smoking.
They are also used for:
- Repairing a chipped tooth
- Covering discoloured teeth
- Reshaping disproportionate teeth
