Frequently Asked Questions

At Linden Market Dental Centre, we take pride in providing Winnipeg-area residents with the very finest dental care available. From thorough examinations and cleanings for the whole family, to smile makeovers and smile restoration with dental implants, our team, led by Les Rykiss, D.M.D., has the perfect solution to keep your smile healthy, beautiful, and strong for life. We hope that the following frequently asked questions are helpful to our current and prospective patients. If you have questions that are unanswered on this page, please do not hesitate to contact us.

While permanent dental implants are more expensive than traditional dentures, they are by far the most permanent, comfortable, and natural-looking method of tooth replacement. Many patients with dentures complain about clicking noises, slippage, and difficulty enjoying all their favorite foods as a result of ill-fitting dentures. Dental implants, on the other hand, are grafted to the jawbone as tightly as natural teeth, so wearers always enjoy natural chewing and speaking. Another major benefit of dental implants instead of dentures is their convenience. Dentures need to be removed and cleaned nightly, then re-adhered with glues or tapes that are often difficult to work with and messy. With dental implants from Linden Market Dental Centre, Dr. Rykiss’ patients only need to maintain a good oral hygiene routine (regular brushing and flossing), to maintain their restorations in perfect condition for years.

Dr. Rykiss and the team at Linden Market Dental Centre firmly believe that nobody should forego dental care because cost is a concern. While most dental insurance policies cover the cost of regular checkups and cleanings, elective or cosmetic procedures are not covered.

There is! Porcelain veneers from Linden Market Dental Centre are crafted at one of the leading boutique dental studios in the country, and they can be fitted over the front surface of a tooth to mask any number of imperfections. We also offer cosmetic dental bonding to help restore and reshape teeth. To learn more about the porcelain veneers or dental bonding process, we recommend that you visit our before-and-after photo gallery, and then contact Dr. Rykiss to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation.

While the team at Linden Market Dental Centre in Winnipeg is well-known for creating stunning smile makeovers by using modern cosmetic and restorative dentistry techniques, we know that the best foundation for a beautiful smile is a healthy mouth.
