Crown & Bridges
Buildup of plaque and calculus around your teeth and under your gums can lead to long term problems like decay, gingivitis, bone loss, and eventually, tooth loss. One of the best things you can do for your oral health is to implement strong oral hygiene practices. Routine cleanings at South Georgetown Dental rids the mouth of harmful bacteria and helps prevent long term issues-saving you money and time down the road!
If Dr. Bhanot or Dr. Pilijek detect a cavity, they will carefully remove any decayed areas of the tooth. Depending on the size of the cavity, a white filling material can be used to match the natural color of your teeth- giving a more natural appearance than silver fillings. If a cavity is left untreated it can become quite painful and potentially lead to a root canal or tooth loss.
Crown & Bridges
A crown can be used to help restore and reshape a damaged tooth. There might be an existing crack, a large filling, or maybe the tooth has been root canal treated. A veneer wasn’t the right way to go, but a crown just might be! A crown is a full coverage way to restore and protect your tooth (think of it as a cap on your tooth). It’s matched to the shade of the rest of your teeth and will help keep your bite and jaw aligned, prevent shifting of other teeth, and take on the forces from daily biting and chewing.
How do we fix a gap of missing teeth? A bridge! A bridge is made up of two or more crowns on either side of the gap, to act as anchors for a fake tooth (or teeth) in the empty space. The entire bridge is cemented in place atop the gums to give you the most natural look. Bridges can help to restore your smile, the ability to chew and speak, and even prevent remaining teeth from shifting. Book a consultation with South Georgetown Dental, and our team will help determine if a bridge is the right choice for you!
Porcelain veneers are a great way to help you achieve your dream smile! A veneer a thin shell of porcelain that is attached to the front surface of your tooth, they can change the color, shape, and alignment of your teeth completely transforming your smile!

Root canal therapy can help save a tooth that has become severely infected or decayed inside the nerve of your tooth. When the nerve becomes infected a successful root canal lets you keep the tooth rather than removing it! If left untreated it can be detrimental to your oral health and may lead to further complications. If you’re unsure about any symptoms you’re experiencing, schedule an appointment with South Georgetown Dental for a consultation and evaluation.
Dr. Bhanot & Dr. Pilijek may determine that you need a tooth extracted for various reasons; maybe its a wisdom tooth, or a tooth that has severe decay, or has broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Our team will ensure that your extraction is as comfortable as possible, and will guide you through the whole procedure and post-care.
Maybe you lost a tooth in a game of hockey, or maybe it was never there to begin with! Maybe the decay was too deep to restore. It may be time to talk about implants! An implant can replace one or several teeth and are also used for full or partial dentures (permanent and removable). Dental implants are metal posts that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums to provide support for artificial teeth. A crown is attached to the implant and matched to the shade of your teeth to look like a natural tooth.
