Accepting Patients during province-wide shutdown
As Essential health care professionals we are open during any provincial covid shutdown. We have enforced strict protocols and safety measures to ensure the utmost safety of our patients and staff.
At Dentistry on Dundas, we pride ourselves on offering all aspects of dental care. Our team consists of general dentists and specialists to treat all facets of dentistry within the same building. Treatments offered include, but are not limited to, general dentistry, extractions, implants, cosmetic dentistry, root canals, orthodontics, invisalign, etc. We provide practically every dental service available for your oral health.
On average a patient should see a dentist every 6 months. However, the scheduled maintenance of your oral health is tailored to your individuals needs. A patient who has no history of decay, very little tartar buildup and no gum issues may need to see us yearly, whilst someone with extensive dental work and a history of gum disease will require a dental visit every three months. A comprehensive initial dental exam will layout your customized map to oral health.
It is recommended that your child visit the dentist around 1 year old or about 6 months following their first tooth erupting into their mouths. Your dentist will evaluate your child's development and answer any questions you have regarding child oral healthcare. Following the first visit, your dentist will recommend recare visits to further ensure proper development and make sure your child's teeth are and remain healthy.
A dental emergency is anything that requires immediate treatment. Emergency dental treatment can alleviate pain, treat an infection, and/or save a tooth. Common dental emergencies include broken teeth, knocked out teeth, dental abscesses, and severe pain originating from a tooth. Please contact us if you are experiencing a dental emergency.
There is a range of options here. Firstly, minor changes to the shape of a tooth or several teeth can be done using dental rotary instruments. In most cases this can be completed without local anaesthetic at a short appointment. Option two is a veneer process, which may include either porcelain or composite (a plastic material). The porcelain requires local anaesthetic , temporary restorations, dental laboratory assistance and a second appointment. The composite veneer may or may not require local anaethetic and usually is completed chairside. In both cases, a thin layer of material is laminated to the outside of the tooth. Usually, porcelain veneers are considered the best option because of their longevity and stability in colour. Porcelain never changes in colour, whilst composite restorations can stain and darken over time. Finally, Crowns are also an option when the need to change the shape or position of a tooth is more dramatic or when the tooth is severely discoloured. Procedurally, crowns are very similar to veneers except the restoration wraps around the entire tooth. In many cases we will use a combination of veneers and crowns to achieve an optimal cosmetic and functional result.
