A comprehensive preventive program is a cooperative effort between the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth. There are several types of bridges. You and your dentist will discuss the best options for your particular case.
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function.
Dentures are artificial replacements for your natural teeth and gums. If an accident, a disease or poor oral health care has left you with only a few healthy teeth or none at all, your dentist or prosthodontist might suggest dentures to replace your missing teeth.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial dentures.
Playing sports is a great hobby, but it can put your teeth at risk. If you’re an athlete we strongly recommend you wear a sports guard. We can create a custom sports guard that will cushion and protect your teeth from harmful impact.

In accordance with BC’s Phase 2 Restart Plan, we are happy to announce that we are back in the office! All of us at Twin Rivers Dental have been busy preparing and cannot wait to see all of you again. With the guidelines issued by the Provincial Health Authorities and the CDSBC, we have made a number of changes to our office to ensure it is a safe environment for everyone. Below is a list of changes we have implemented:
When booking your appointment you will be asked a set of questions used to determine if there are any special circumstances needed for your appointment.
When you arrive for your appointment you will be asked to: sanitize your hands, answer the same questions again, have your temperature taken, and complete a form acknowledging the risk of COVID-19.
While in the reception area we ask that you follow social distancing protocols.
Only patients and one guardian (if required) will be allowed into the office.
If possible we ask that you wait in your car or outside until your appointment. Call the office when you arrive and we will let you know when we are ready for you.
Seating has been limited in our waiting room to allow for social distancing. All magazine and toys have been removed.
You will be given a mouth rinse prior to receiving treatment
Washroom use will be for emergencies only.
We have reduced the number of appointments currently available to allow for enhanced cleaning between patients in both the reception and clinical areas.
In addition to those listed above, we have also adopted many other procedures and protocols to ensure our staff and patients remain safe during this time. Patients who’s appointments were cancelled over the past couple of months will be contacted directly to reschedule in the next couple of weeks. Priority will be given to emergency appointments.
We thank all our patients for their kind understanding these past couple of months and ask for your continued support through this reopening process. If you would like to schedule an appointment or have any questions, please contact us at 250-374-1511.
