If you are facing the loss of one or more teeth, you have likely spent some time researching tooth replacement options.

dental crowns | Burnaby BC Dentist

Dental crowns are essentially tooth covers that cap a damaged tooth, restoring its size, shape, and function. For example, if you have an old, large filling in your back molar, over time this filling will begin to pull away from the tooth; it can also cause the tooth to develop a fracture.

Instead, a dental crown fits over the tooth and restores its function. Dental crowns are made to blend in seamlessly with your surrounding teeth, so it looks completely ...

What Is the “Angry 11” and How Do You Treat It?

If you have two lines, or furrows, between your eyebrows, you already know what the “angry 11” is. These two lines are also sometimes referred to as “angry resting face” because the lines make people look like they are angry or annoyed—even when their face is at rest. The lines are usually a result of squinting, frowning, or thinking, and they tend to get worse as people get older.
