What is the best way to whiten my smile?

Is there a dental solution to my chronic headaches and migraines?

If you suffer from chronic headaches, migraines and jaw pain you may be suffering from undiagnosed dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint.

Dr. Shore offers highly effective oral appliance therapy to reposition your jaw and alleviate many of the uncomfortable symptoms associated with TMJ Dysfunction including headaches, migraines and jaw pain.

What is the most common form of tooth loss among adults?

Periodontal disease (or gum disease) is the most common cause of tooth loss amongst adults.

If your gums feel swollen, inflamed and appear to be receding you may be suffering from periodontal disease. This gum disease can range from the not so serious gingivitis to serious cases of periodontitis which is why it is highly important to visit our dental practice located on Central Park every six months for an oral health check-up and professional clean.

Does root canal therapy hurt?

Contrary to popular belief, root canal therapy performed by Dr. Jared Shore should not cause any more discomfort than that of a regular filling.

If the nerve tissue of your tooth has become infected, root canal therapy may be able to save your tooth from extraction. With a gentle touch and compassionate approach to all of the treatments Dr. Shore conducts, he is the ideal choice if you require a delicate procedure such as root canal therapy.

What is the best way to replace my missing teeth?

Dental implants have revolutionised the way in which dentists can treat single, multiple and even total tooth loss.

Mimicking the feel, form and function of natural teeth better than any restorative treatment to date, dental implants perform the role of your missing tooth root and serve as a solid foundation for prosthetic tooth replacements such as crowns, bridges and dentures.

How can I transform the entire appearance of my smile?

If you have multiple esthetic concerns in relation to the appearance of your smile, porcelain veneers may be the ideal cosmetic dental treatment for you.

Porcelain veneers are custom designed shells that are color matched to mimic the exact shade and translucency of your natural tooth enamel. These are permanently bonded to your teeth to visibly erase many of the unwanted characteristics of your smile such as chips, cracks and discolorations.

How can I straighten my smile without metal braces?

If you wish to straighten your smile but can’t bear the thought of wearing unsightly metal braces for years, Invisalign may be the ideal choice for you.

Utilizing a series of transparent aligners, Invisalign has revolutionized the way in which dental professionals can straighten your smile. This is an attractive, comfortable, convenient and lifestyle friendly alternative to traditional metal braces, and is highly popular for adult orthodontic cases.
