Dental Services to Invest

When was the last time you had an appointment with a dental professional? Many people wait until they are in pain before they start calling local dentists to find someone who can help them. A better approach is to see a dentist regularly and make use of several of the basic treatments they have to offer. Here are a few examples of dental services you can invest in now and reap the benefits for years to come.

Annual Dental Exams

If you don’t make use of any other service, it’s important to call a North York dentist and arrange for annual dental exams. These exams are intended to determine if your teeth and gums are in basically good condition, or if there are issues beginning to develop. If the latter happens to be the case, the dental professional will go over options for treatment, help you set up a schedule, and prevent those conditions from getting worse and ultimately affecting your health.

Teeth Cleaning

Next to an annual exam, going in for a teeth cleaning at least once a year is a good idea. While it may be true that you always brush after meals and use floss at least a few times each week, there is still some residue trapped on and between the teeth. Over time, the residue increases the potential for damage to the teeth and the gums. By having your teeth cleaned, you minimize the risk of developing a number of dental issues.

Remember that as your teeth are being cleaned, the professional is also on the lookout for anything that indicates some issue has developed since your last exam. From noticing the enamel is weakening to detecting a hairline cavity, finding the problem now means it can be resolved before it poses a serious threat to your dental health.

Teeth Whitening

So many things can affect the shade of your teeth that it’s impossible to completely reverse the yellowing effect on your own. That’s where having professional whitening treatments makes a difference. You could try over the counter products, but they don’t work as quickly and you run the risk of overdoing the treatments and ending up with teeth that are a little too white. If you choose to leave dental services like this in the capable hands of your dental team, they will ensure the treatments leave you with a brighter smile but without the pitfalls that come with other approaches to getting rid of the yellowed look.

Teeth Straightening

Crooked teeth will ruin what is otherwise a great smile. Whether you have one crooked tooth or several, it makes sense to seek help from an expert in dentistry in North York. Remember that there options other than traditional metal braces. You could be a prime candidate for clear aligners that help to gradually correct the problem and leave you with a mouth full of perfectly straight teeth. The only way to find the right solution is to consult with a dental professional.

Why live with any dental condition or run the risk of developing dental problems? There are so many solutions today that take little time and are very affordable. Call your dentist today and start making use of these and other services. The impact on your smile, your dental health, and even general health will make the effort worth it.

We Believe in Your Smile!

Dear Smile Centre Family,

The recent Ontario government announcement declaring a state of emergency and issuing of a new stay-at-home order has caused some uncertainty. We wanted to let you know that all of our Smile Centre locations are still OPEN.

As dental professionals we have been classified as an essential part of healthcare and will continue to provide both preventive, restorative, and emergency treatment. We will not be providing some elective services such as teeth whitening at this time.

We are grateful to remain open as we know how important it is to stay on top of dental issues before they become major problems. Good oral health is directly related to good overall health. Please know that we are doing everything we can to ensure that we go above and beyond all of the recommended safety protocols to keep you, your loved ones, and our team healthy and safe. That is, and always will be our highest priority. Our strict protocols include: Advanced pre screening, using Hepa air filters, wearing advanced PPE, and limiting the number of people in the office by making virtual consultations available. Our offices have always prided ourselves on being experts when it comes to asepsis and sterilizations protocols and it should be noted that there has been no evidence of COVID spread related to dental offices at this time.

Should you have any questions, or wish to postpone or delay any upcoming appointments, please feel free to reach out. We completely understand that not everyone is comfortable receiving dental treatment at this time and we will do our best to accommodate all of your needs while making sure that you feel safe.

Continuing to follow our enhanced safety guidelines, that we have had in place since June, will help to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for everyone.  Underneath these layers of extra protection, rest assured that we are still the same, caring, attentive providers we have always been!

Thank You for your trust during these uncertain times,

Your Smile Centre
