It is our practice policy to give patients full information about the cost of their dental work before any treatment is undertaken. A written estimate and treatment plan will be provided for all dental treatment during your first visit for a check up at the practice.

DENTAL FINANCE: We offer finance options on some treatments and are able to guide you with the payment options. It is a simple procedure. You would be required to fill out a finance company form. They perform a credit check and inform the practice. We will be able to make your appointment at your first visit.

Our office will be fully equipped to process your payments directly to your health funds. You may pay for your dental care by cash, cheque or credit/debit card. You might be requested to show us another proof of ID if required. This is for your security. We do accept payments over the phone.

We try to make payment as straightforward as possible. Our normal policy is that patients are asked to make payments on the day of the treatment for the treatment they have received.
 
At Icon Dental Group we can remove unsightly dark amalgam fillings and replace them with white composite or ceramic fillings to restore the look of your original tooth and to remove the risk of amalgam toxins.

White fillings are made of a composite resin, or porcelain ceramic material that can be coloured to exactly match your existing tooth colour. These fillings are extremely durable and offer the additional benefit of not carrying the potential toxicity of older amalgam (silver) fillings. White fillings can revive your smile, making it appear younger and healthier.

There are areas in and around your teeth that a toothbrush simply can’t reach, and the only way to get the debris, not to mention the plaque, out of these areas is to floss. If you simply let this plaque accumulate, then tooth decay will eventually set in. That is what makes flossing such an important step. If you learn to follow up brushing your teeth with flossing them, you will quickly notice the difference in the way that your mouth feels afterward. Ring Icon Dental Group today to make an appointment with our Oral Health Therapist.

Dental implants provide a solution for missing teeth, as well as long-term comfort for your mouth. These artificial tooth roots are inserted directly into the jawbone, so that they’re meant to function—as well as look—like real teeth. In some cases, we can use them to replace a whole row of teeth, making them superior to dentures.
 
If teeth are not replaced movement will occur, which can lead to other problems.
 
Many people grind or clench their teeth in their sleep without ever realizing they do it. Besides causing damage directly to the teeth, bruxism can also lead to recurring headaches.
 
For many people, snoring unfortunately goes hand in hand with sleep. While it used to be that most snoring treatments were available only through medical channels such as ENT specialists or overnight sleep clinics, these days, many people are turning to their dentists for help in coming up with effective snoring treatments.
