Prosthodontic Dental Care
Our practice offers specialist care in a complete range of prosthetic and cosmetic dentistry, helping you achieve the best possible oral comfort, function, appearance and health – in seamless coordination with your general dentist.
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.
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.
Our office is located conveniently just outside of downtown Ottawa at 414-1335 Carling Avenue. Our office hours are designed to accommodate a wide variety of patient needs, but as a courtesy to others please be on time and let us know at least 24 hours in advance if you need to reschedule.
If you have a dental emergency we will see you as quickly as possible that day. If the emergency occurs during after hours, such as evenings, weekends or holidays, you can call the Ottawa Dental Society Emergency Service at (613) 523-4185 or contact Dr. Tom Harle directly at (613) 591-9902.
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.
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.
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.
For any questions or concerns, please contact us.
