If you've been thinking about how much happier you'd feel with a dental crown or onlays, but are put off by the thought of the process and how long it might take to accomplish, you should know about the CEREC procedure. This system of creating crowns and veneers eliminates the need for a messy tray of goop to form an impression of your teeth; instead, it uses digital imagery to model the precise shape of your tooth (or teeth). With this information, along with the necessary training and experience, Dr. Orth is able to craft your crown (or veneer) in the office, while you wait. There is no need to book a second appointment for fitting the restoration - it will be bonded in place the same day. Contact Core Dental for more information.

Our mission is to guide our patients through their preventative, cosmetic and restorative dental care in a comfortable environment, to help them achieve a lifetime of optimal health and wellness. We believe in educating and informing patients, and in treating them as family. We feel strongly about making patients feel at ease, and in providing a stress-free environment.

Are you missing teeth, or wearing dentures that you find uncomfortable? Talk to us about dental implants - a great solution! As the name implies, an implant is "planted" in the jaw; that is, a post is installed which acts as a very stable anchor for a replacement tooth or teeth. The benefits are many and include a natural looking smile and a fully functional mouth that lets you eat anything you want without discomfort or concern. You can have the confidence of a strong and healthy smile again. Ask us how.

Core Dental is proud to be part of CORE, Calgary's only downtown shopping centre. We are located on the fourth level, above Holt Renfrew. The two parkades at the centre provide plenty of close, convenient and weather-proof parking, and the valet service is included at no extra charge. Appointments are available Mondays and Wednesdays from 10 am to 5:30, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30 to 3:30, and Fridays by arrangement. Give us a call today at 403-265-5724 or use our form for a callback. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Our lead dentist at Core Dental is Dr. Kim Orth, who has been in Calgary since 1988. Even after decades in practice, he continues to find dentistry exciting, in part because of the continuous education he seeks and the ever changing and always amazing technology he brings in for his patients. His interest in dentistry is also constantly renewed by the steady flow of patients (and their growing families) who all feel like family to Dr. Orth and his team.

If you are fortunate enough to have insurance coverage for dental work, but aren't sure how the plan is applied, bring in your information. We will be happy to explain your coverage to you and make sure that you make the best use of it to achieve your goals. For example, most plans renew each year and any unused benefits are simply lost forever. We can coordinate your treatment plan to split the cost over two coverage periods, reducing your share of the cost to the greatest extent possible. We've worked with a lot of insurers - we can translate their fine print and special clauses into English. Actually, we can also help you out in Hungarian and Romanian. Stop by our clinic in downtown Calgary's CORE centre.

At Core Dental, we want our patients to feel comfortable, and we offer a soothing environment you are not likely to find in most other clinics. As well as providing a high level of professional dentistry (under sedation if that's your preference), we also offer some creature comforts to keep you at ease and feeling confident. We invite you to partake of our well-stocked complimentary snack and beverages bar as well as the Internet kiosk in the waiting area, and during your appointment, aromatherapy, blankets & pillows and in-ceiling entertainment are available for your enjoyment.
