The gel is applied and activated by a special blue light to give instant results. The in-house method includes a take home kit to maintain your new white smile.

Inlays / Onlays  (Porcelain Fillings)

Inlays/Onlays are porcelain fillings that can replace old and worn mercury fillings. The porcelain holds the tooth structure together, strengthening the teeth. Porcelain fillings are also used in lieu of crowns because they keep the natural shape and form of the tooth. Patients are often not given the option of having porcelain fillings instead of crowns, and unlike the fillings, crowns require more removal of tooth structure. Porcelain fillings offer patients metal-free dentistry giving them a more natural smile.


A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance. It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't enough tooth left. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that has already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It's also used to cover a dental implant.


This is the ultimate in a cosmetic dental make-over. Many cosmetic dental problems can be permanently resolved with porcelain veneers. Whether you have chipped, gapped, stained or mis-aligned teeth, this is the answer. This wafer-thin porcelain is form-fitted to each individual tooth. As strong as one's own teeth, these veneers resist future discoloration and chipping. Only two or more visits are required to have the perfect smile.


If you're missing one or more teeth, you may notice a difference in chewing and speaking. There are options to help restore your smile. Bridges help maintain the shape of your face, as well as alleviating the stress in your bite by replacing missing teeth.  A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth and bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. The restoration can be made from gold alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. Unlike a removable bridge, which you can take out and clean, a fixed bridge can only be removed by a dentist.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are essentially artificial tooth roots. They can be used to replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, support a denture or restore an entire mouth. Implants are made of titanium. Titanium unlike other metals is not rejected by the body. Titanium is very strong and is biologically inert. To be a candidate for a dental implant two criteria must be met. Your gum tissue should be healthy overall and there must be enough bone present to support the implant. Implants can be used to support a bridge, a removable denture or a fixed denture. Your periodontist and dentist will discuss the available options and benefits of each.


Root Canal Therapy

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is the process of removing infected, injured or dead pulp from your tooth. The space inside the hard layers of each tooth is called the root canal system. This system is filled with soft dental pulp made up of nerves and blood vessels that help your tooth grow and develop. After a root canal treatment, your tooth has to be restored (fixed) to look, feel and work as much like a natural tooth as possible. Your dentist may use a permanent filling or a crown to restore your tooth. The choice of restoration will depend on the strength of the part of the tooth that’s left. A back tooth will likely need a crown because chewing puts a great deal of force on back teeth. If there is not enough of the tooth left, posts may be used to help support the crown.


Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Wisdom teeth are extracted for two general reasons: either the wisdom teeth have already become impacted, or the wisdom teeth could potentially become problematic if not extracted. Potential problems caused by the presence of properly grown-in wisdom teeth include infections caused by food particles easily trapped in the jaw area behind the wisdom teeth where regular brushing and flossing is difficult and ineffective. Such infections may be frequent, and cause considerable pain and medical danger. Other reasons wisdom teeth are removed include misalignment which rubs up against the tongue or cheek causing pain, potential crowding or malocclusion of the remaining teeth. Before removing a wisdom tooth, your dentist will give you a local anesthetic to numb the area where the tooth will be removed. You also have the option of getting  oral sedation to feel more comfortable during the procedure.

To remove the wisdom tooth, your dentist will open up the gum tissue over the tooth and take out any bone that is covering the tooth. He or she will separate the tissue connecting the tooth to the bone and then remove the tooth. Sometimes the dentist will cut the tooth into smaller pieces to make it easier to remove. After the tooth is removed, you may need stitches. Some stitches dissolve over time and some have to be removed after a few days. Your dentist will tell you whether your stitches need to be removed. A folded cotton gauze pad placed over the wound will help stop the bleeding.

Periodontal Care (Cleaning)

Periodontal disease or gum disease as it is more commonly called affects almost everyone at some time in their lives. The symptoms range from slight bleeding when you brush your teeth, to bone loss and looseness of teeth. Gum disease is a bacterial infection that affects the gums and the bone which support our teeth. Bacteria are constantly forming a sticky film known as plaque on the surfaces of our teeth. If we leave it in place, the bacteria build up and attack the edges of the gums around our teeth. This is why brushing twice a day and daily flossing are so important. Regular dental examinations are also vital to ensure any gum disease is found at an early stage.


If you are ready for a new smile or ever wanted to straighten your teeth but you did not want braces, the Invisalign  system may be for you. This can help you have a straighter smile in months without having to wear braces. Your Invisalign treatment will consist of a series of aligners that you switch out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. And since your Invisalign system is custom-made for your teeth and your teeth only, with a plan devised by you and your dentist , you know you'll end up with a smile that truly fits.


BOTOX® Cosmetic is a naturally purified protein that works to relax muscle tissue and smooth out facial skin. Botox® is the world’s number two cosmetic procedure second only to teeth whitening. Now you can relax in SeRena Dental spa-like atmosphere and not only get your teeth cleaned and whitened but also eliminate or minimize lip creases, angry frown lines and forehead wrinkles.

BOTOX® injections block the chemical signals that allow muscles to contract. Because the inactive muscles cannot tighten, skin relaxes and smoothes out, resulting in the appearance of fewer lines and wrinkles. The treatment is relatively painless, so no anaesthesia is usually needed. BOTOX® injection treatment typically lasts no longer than 30 minutes.

Sedation Dentistry

If you've been hiding your smile, putting up with pain, or putting off going to the dentist because you're too nervous, your life is about to change! You'll be sedated just by taking a small pill one hour prior to you appointment and this is just enough to be unaware of the treatment, as if you were snoozing. We also can use Nitrous Oxide gas (laughing gas) in combination with the oral sedation.  You'll wake up refreshed, with little or no memory of what was accomplished. New and safe sedation dental techniques mean you can have a lot of dental treatments done quickly, with little or no discomfort.
