Bleaching or Teeth Whitening
Many of us feel that our smiles are most striking when our teeth look especially white. But unfortunately, soft drinks, coffee, tea, wine and tobacco can leave behind ugly stains. To help you restore your gleaming, bright white smile and to give you an added boost of confidence, we offer many options, such as custom whitening kits and Zoom whitening. Please contact us today to find out more about these options and which one is best for you.
Veneers – Direct and Indirect
We understand different patients have different needs, and budgets and that is why we offer both direct and indirect veneers to help your smile be its best! Generally speaking direct veneers are usually the less expensive option, and indirect veneers last longer but are more expensive. Indirect veneers take 2 visits and are lab made, custom for you, using our oral scanner technology. They are typically made with porcelain which looks natural and is long lasting. Direct veneers however only take 1 visit and are done directly by the dentist with composite resin. Both of these options are customizable to match the tooth shade appropriately, and give you your beautiful smile back. Ask your dentist on your next visit to see if either of these are the right option for you!
In some cases, porcelain veneers can perfect your smile by masking stains, hiding chips, correcting misalignment, and creating uniformity. Veneers, which are made of thin, customized material, are designed to slide over the teeth, look incredibly natural and are long-lasting.
Bonding to a tooth for cosmetic and functional purposes generally does not require a 2nd trip to the dentist as everything is completed in the chair. Usually this a less expensive option, since the lab is not needed and that has additional supply, labour and shipping costs. Bonding is used for many different cosmetic purposes, such as but not limited to: gap closures, chipped tooth repair, direct veneers, discolouration, reshaping teeth and protecting tooth’s root if the gum line recedes. The dentist will shade match the resin based off your teeth, in order to allow a natural look for your teeth. Take a look at our Smile Gallery for some examples of our great bonding work.
Diastema Closures (Gap between front teeth)
This procedure is a specific type of bonding procedure where gaps in patient’s front teeth are filled in. This is done using a composite resin that matches your specific tooth shade in order to ensure a natural looking smile. See our Smile Gallery for an example of this procedure. Ask us for more information on this procedure on your next visit, to see if it is right for you!

"I visited this Dental Office for a broken molar. The visit was amazing. The work was very well-done, painless, and fast! They really spoke to me gently, and were very understanding about my tooth. It was all fixed up, and wow! What a great result. I am smiling again!"
