Services

Dr. Harle Bleaching – giving you a brighter smile

A bright smile is a great smile. We offer teeth bleaching treatments to whiten your teeth, overcoming the darkening or yellowing that happens with age, coffee, tea, or smoking. We offer both the dentist-supervised at-home bleaching (“low and slow”) which is more economical than in-office techniques (“high and fast”), where we whiten your teeth while you kick back and relax in the dental chair.

Crowns & Bridges – bridging the gap

If you have missing or damaged teeth, we can help through the application of crowns and bridges. While crowns are as they sound; a porcelain cap that covers a broken, weak, or damaged tooth, a bridge is used to fill in the gap of a missing tooth with a false tooth. Through the combination of the two, we can help restore your smile for oral functionality and appearance.

Dentures – a new smile on life

When the time comes in life for dentures, look at the bright side – your smile, that is! Dentures give you a second chance on a beautiful smile; they boost your confidence as well as your general outtake on life. Come see the friendly specialists at Dr. Harle’s office for the perfect pair of dentures and a good reason to smile.Dr Harle

Implants – a strong foundation for years to come

We use implants as a method for replacing missing teeth – in a way which allows for long term function and comfort. This involves a titanium implant which will physically bond with the bone in your jaw, resulting in a permanent union. This procedure can also further prevent bone deterioration which usually occurs after tooth loss.

Veneers – the faster way to whiter teeth

When you have a discoloured tooth, such as from smoking or years of coffee, wine, or tea drinking, veneers are a great solution to cover up the stains. Veneers involve the application of ceramic shells to the discoloured teeth. When finished, they make your smile incredibly natural-looking and white.

Recall & Maintenance Care

For those patients referred into the practice for specialty treatment, you will need to return to your family dentist for routine recall and maintenance care on completion of therapy. Some patient will be contacted by our office for follow-up checks on an individualized basis depending on the service provided and other clinical factors.

Financial Arrangements

Before we begin your work, we will review our examination findings with you and present a recommended treatment plan for your consideration. Our treatment coordinator Karen will answer your questions concerning fee estimates, financial options, insurance limitations and scheduling requirements. Our policy regarding payment for dental care is to offer a variety of options that make it possible for you to receive the treatment you need yet assure timely compensation for these services. For your convenience we accept Interac®, cash, VISA, MasterCard® and cheque. Generally, payment is due when services are rendered. Special financial arrangements & installment options are available for extensive or complex treatments that are spread out over multiple appointments. Specific details are provided on request.

Dental Insurance

If you are covered by a dental insurance plan, a pre-treatment authorization form will be prepared for you to submit to your carrier so that you will know the amount that your plan covers. The office does not accept payment directly from the insurance company. Current insurance industry controls will only allow us to submit a claim for your reimbursement once treatment is concluded. We will complete the necessary forms as quickly as possible to ensure your prompt settlement with your insurance company. Patients are responsible for any charges that are not covered in their policy.
