Cosmetic Dentistry in Maple Ridge
Cosmetic Dentistry Near You
We know the true value of a beautiful smile. For this reason, we dedicate our practice to helping Maple Ridge residents achieve a radiant, healthy smile that they can proudly share with others. Our dentists offer cosmetic dentistry in Maple Ridge. Our wide range of services include:
Having whiter teeth has become a priority aesthetic concern for today’s patients.
In-Office Tooth Whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment that we routinely use to brighten the colour of natural tooth enamel.
In fact, a single Whitening at Maple Place Dental can brighten your smile 6-10 shades – in about an hour!
Gummy Smile is a condition in which the gums cover too much of the teeth (usually the front teeth), which can cause teeth to appear to be unnaturally short, and cause individuals to avoid smiling.
Gum contouring, also known as gum reshaping, is a quick cosmetic procedure that we use to treat and overcome gummy smiles.
The results of gum contouring are dramatic and empowering – often patients remark that they should have had the procedure years before!

Restorative Dentistry in Maple Ridge
Restorative Dentistry Near You
We offer restorative dentistry in Maple Ridge to bring your bite back to peak performance.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
When you lose or chip a tooth, it can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. Technology has made it possible for dental crowns and bridges to look and feel like your natural teeth.
A fixed bridge is an excellent option to replace missing teeth. Adjacent teeth are used to support and anchor the bridge into place. We will craft your new bridge in a dental lab. Please note, your two adjacent teeth will be fitted for crowns.Â We customize your bridges to fit the unique spacing of your teeth and mouth, plus we take the time to match the shade of your bridge to your existing teeth for a natural look. In fact, your permanent bridges will be straighter and stronger than the tooth that used to be there!
Dental bridges are comfortable, permanent, stable, and usually natural-looking. They are not the ideal option if you are missing more than three teeth in a row or if your anchor teeth are not strong. In these cases, our dentist will recommend dental implants or dentures.
Mercury Free Fillings
Silver fillings are no longer the only option. We provide tooth-coloured (composite) fillings that are extremely durable and look just like your natural enamel.
You can erase evidence of past dental work by replacing your old silver fillings with tooth-coloured fillings.
Dental implants make an improvement in your oral function and lifestyle.
Implants can fill a single gap in your smile or serve as an anchor for multiple missing teeth. Implants provide a strong foundation for your bite while looking and feeling like natural teeth.
With dentalÂ implants, our patients rediscover the comfort and confidence to smile, eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life.

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed in North America. More than 14 million root canal procedures take place every year.
Our dentists will ensure that your root canal is a positive experience restoring your oral health and eliminating the need for further more complex restorations.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Wisdom teeth can become impacted against neighbouring teeth, preventing their emergence. Impacted wisdom teeth can become problematic, painful, and need to be removed.
At Maple Place Dental our dentists can extract the most impacted wisdom teeth with routine oral surgery. We are equipped to conduct wisdom tooth extraction with or without sedation.
Please contact us if you’re looking to receive oral surgery in Maple Ridge.
Sedation Dentistry in Maple Ridge
Sedation Dentistry Near You
Oral sedation, also known as pill sedation, is one of the three sedation methods dentists use to help calm patients down during dental procedures. Patients will be given the sedative in the form of a pill or liquid in the hour leading up to the appointment. The use of oral sedative results in a relaxed and calm mood that help the patients to undergo dental treatment without feeling anxious. Patients will be fully monitored during the appointment.
Intravenous (IV) sedation refers to the administering of an anti-anxiety drug through a vein during the dental treatment. The sedative helps one to relax and feel very sleepy. It is a moderate type of conscious sedation. Patients will be fully monitored during the appointment.
The goal is always to provide the safest, most pain-free treatment for our young patients.Â Sedation dentistry allows the dentist to provide a variety of dental treatments safely and comfortably for children.Â There are several benefits to sedation dentistry, including:
- No memory of undergoing the procedure
- No sense of time while under sedation
- No sense of smell or sound
- No fear or anxiety during treatment
These benefits could help prevent our young patients from negative experience, which could last and affect them for a long time.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Known as â€ślaughing gasâ€ť, Nitrous Oxide can be utilized for a short procedure or administration of freezing to help those with needlephobia. Nitrous Oxide is readily reversible so that the patients can carry on with the rest of the day soon as the appointment is finished.
We are happy to provide sedation dentistry near you. Please contact us foe more details.
Dental Technology in Maple Ridge
Dental Technology Near You
We utilize dental technologies in Maple Ridge to provide our patients with dental care. Highlights include:
VELscope Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer can potentially be deadly. If oral cancer is detected late, the chance of survival is 32%. However, if oral cancer is detected early on, the survival rate increases to 83%.
What is the VELscope System?
The VELscope system is a revolutionary handheld device that uses blue light to detect abnormal lesions and oral tissues that can indicate oral cancer. VELscope does not use rinses or dyes, is non-invasive, and completely safe.
How Long Does an Exam Last?
A VELscope screening will take no longer than five minutes and has no side effects. Your dentist will examine your mouth for any abnormal tissues and help prevent bacterial growth, fungal infections, and oral cancer.
Book Your VELscope Appointment
Early detection is the key to fighting against oral cancer. Contact our friendly team to schedule your VELscope screening to ease your mind and maintain optimal oral health.
In days past, dental clinics were required to take plaster moulds of the teeth to use for treatment planning. Today, our clinic has welcomed a much less invasive and modern technology into our practice. The iTero scanner allows us to capture and view three-dimensional images of your teeth in as little as a few minutes.
What Does it Do?
Digital renderings created by the iTero scanner are highly accurate and detailed. Using a wand the moves around the teeth and mouth, the scanner captures images and compiles them into 3D renderings that can be viewed on a computer screen. The result is a â€śmapâ€ť of the mouth that can be used for dental treatment planning, including Invisalign.
Digital Dental Radiography
No more wedging film between your teeth and gums or waiting around for negatives to develop: with Digital X-rays we use a small electronic sensor that sends a crystal-clear image of your teeth to our computer monitor almost instantly!
Our computer can compare recent Digital X-rays with past ones, so it can detect even the slightest changes in the appearance of your teeth. That means problems are caught sooner when they are easier and less expensive to treat. Digital X-rays also reduce radiation exposure by up to 90% when compared to traditional film-based technology used in the past!
We utilize the same disinfection and sterilization equipment that is used in hospital surgical suites. This ensures thorough cleaning and effective sterilization of all of our instruments and makes your appointments more efficient.
