Can you help me replace my missing teeth?
We have a multitude of treatments that can do just that, but for the longest-lasting and most natural-looking results, we may recommend that you get dental implants. To learn how they could help rebuild your smile, you can schedule a FREE consultation.
How can you improve the appearance of my smile?
All of the services we provide can improve your smile’s overall look, but for that extra boost, we have cosmetic dentistry. Whether you simply want whiter teeth or a complete makeover, we can provide it in just one or two easy visits.
Do I have to get braces to straighten my crooked teeth?
Not anymore! With Invisalign, you can get the straighter smile you’ve always wanted without the mouthful of metal. It uses nearly invisible clear plastic aligner trays to gently and effectively straighten the teeth in the most discreet way possible.
I’ve just knocked a tooth out/ I’m in extreme dental pain! What should I do?
When you’re in the middle of a dental emergency, don’t worry, you only need to remember to do one thing: call the Bal Dental Centre. We happily take dental emergencies and we’ll work to see you as quickly as possible, on the same day if possible.
