Dental Fillings in Oshawa

Our Oshawa dental office offers an excellent solution to patients who still have silver filings in their smile. We can replace your silver amalgam fillings with cosmetic white or composite fillings to make your smile white again!

Our Oshawa dental office offers composite tooth-coloured fillings in order to repair teeth that are affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. 

Cosmetic Dentist Oshawa

The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling. If you are interested in having your amalgam (silver) fillings replaced with more aesthetically pleasing composite ones, then talk to your dentist about it. Up until recently amalgam fillings were the common practice for filling teeth. Due to their strength, they were useful to fill larger cavities and chewing surfaces.

Composite fillings are now preferable for those who have an allergy to mercury and who want to preserve their natural smiles as much as possible. As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. However, they are very durable and will last many years.

If you aren’t loving your silver smile, talk to us about changing it with white or composite fillings by contacting our Oshawa dental office.

Dental Bonding in Oshawa

If you want to change the appearance of your teeth or if any of your teeth are cracked or chipped, our Oshawa dentists at Lake Vista Dental can help. Composite bonding can work wonders for your smile to restore decaying teeth, cosmetic enhancements, as well as colour changes and reshaping of teeth.

Bonding is a composite resin that uses materials that match the shade, translucency and the texture of your teeth. It can easily close gaps between your teeth, eliminate spots and discoloration, and improve your overall smile and achieve the look you desire.

Cosmetic Dentist Oshawa

Dental bonding is an effective and flexible treatment with a variety of uses:

  • Fix decaying teeth
  • Repair any cracks or chips in teeth
  • Close unwanted gaps between teeth
  • Change the shaping of teeth
  • Enhance the appearance of discolouring in teeth

Bonding is a common procedure and can most often be done in one visit to our clinic. In order to cover any flaws, a thin coating is applied on the front surface of your teeth to which the bonding material is applied. Our skilled team can also use bonding to sculpt, colour and shape your teeth to provide you with the dream smile that you deserve.

Contact our Lake Vista Dental office today to ask us if dental bonding is an option to improve your smile.

Dental Crowns in Oshawa

Dental crowns are an excellent option to strengthen and restore any damaged teeth that you have. Our cosmetic dentist in Oshawa are experts with porcelain dental crowns.

Crowns are applied to restore and strengthen damaged teeth. This damage can result from a variety of factors, such as injury, decay, or even just normal wear and tear. Patients commonly experience pain in back teeth that have fillings due to cracks on the chewing surface of the tooth. In the front teeth, aging fillings can weaken the teeth and cause stains or chips.

Cosmetic Dentist Oshawa

A porcelain dental crown is a custom fitted covering that sits over the top of a damaged tooth. They can be used in various scenarios, often allowing our Oshawa cosmetic dentists to save a tooth instead of turning it into an implant.

There are several instances where a crown is the preferred option:

  • Larger fillings that have decayed or broken down and require a crown to save the tooth
  • A crown is necessary to hold a cracked tooth together
  • Teeth have become sensitive from receded gums or significant wear and require crowns to seal and protect from sensitivity to hot or cold
  • A broken tooth might be too weak for filling and a crown will hold it together. If the fracture is too deep, you may require root canal therapy.
  • If root canal therapy has already been done, a crown will be needed to seal and protect the tooth.

The dental crown creates a surface that protects, covers, seals and strengthens your tooth. A dental crown may be the solution you need to save a tooth and we will be able to evaluate your needs at your next appointment. Please contact our Lake Vista Dental office if dental crowns in Oshawa sound like a possible option for you.

Dental Implants in Oshawa

There are many different dental implant options available at our Oshawa dental office. If you are missing teeth, dental implants act as metal anchors or substitutes for missing tooth structures. Missing teeth can limit your ability to eat the foods you love or smile with confidence. Dental implants are not just the foundation for replacement teeth like bridges or dentures—they are the first step in regaining a functional, attractive smile.

Cosmetic Dentist Oshawa

A dental implant is a small prosthetic post that is placed into the bone of the upper or lower jaw. The post functions as the root portion of the lost natural tooth and serves as an anchor for the replacement tooth. Once the post has settled an artificial tooth is attached to fill the empty space. Dental implants are a perfect replica for your natural teeth. The best part is no one will be able to tell the difference other than you and your dentist.

What is a tooth's purpose?

  • Acting as a chewing surface
  • Holding its place with regards to adjacent teeth
  • Maintaining the bone structure where it was rooted

Please contact our Lake Vista cosmetic dental office to discuss the dental implant and sedation options we have available.

Dental Veneers in Oshawa

If you are looking to visually enhance your smile, custom veneers is a great option we offer by our Oshawa cosmetic dentist. A dental veneer is a thin layer of synthetic material that is bonded to the tooth’s surface. Veneers are a great alternative to otherwise painful dental procedures to improve the appearance of your smile. They are made to match the shape and size of your mouth and can be designed to match the level of whiteness that you want. The main issues that veneers can address are spaces between the teeth, broken or chipped teeth, permanently stained or discolored teeth, and crooked or misshapen teeth. One of the great benefits of veneers is that a substantial aesthetic effect can be obtained with minimal tooth preparation required.

Cosmetic Dentist Oshawa

Veneers are very versatile, useful for a variety of situations:

  • Straightens crooked teeth
  • Closes gaps between teeth
  • Perfect to whiten teeth that are dark, yellow, stained, or discoloured
  • Repairs teeth that are broken or chipped
  • Enhances your overall smile, giving you added confidence

To finally create the smile you have always dreamed, book an appointment with one of our cosmetic dentists at our Oshawa dental office.

Dental Surgery and Sedation Dentistry in Oshawa

Our Oshawa dentists are always focused to make our patients comfortable, while we provide preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental services. Sedation is a worthwhile option for our patients that may be anxious for their dental procedure. Our Oshawa dentists use a safe anesthesia to make our anxious patients relaxed during their treatment.

Cosmetic Dentist Oshawa

Tooth extraction is one form of dental surgery when sedation may be used. Some of the reasons for tooth extraction include:

  • The tooth being severely decayed
  • Advanced gum disease is present
  • The tooth is broken beyond repair
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • To prepare your mouth for orthodontic treatment, implants, and dentures

For simple tooth extractions in Oshawa, our dental office can easily loosen your tooth and remove it with dental forceps. Simple extractions are quick and have very few steps or possible complications. Extractions that are more complex, may be less common, but will require more time and precision. Our Oshawa dentists are highly trained and skilled in this area to ensure that these procedures are as painless and comfortable as possible. The aftercare process for dental extractions is extremely important to aid healing and we will provide you with precise instructions on how to take care of yourself for the days following your procedure.

Patients that use dental sedation in Oshawa are not unconscious, but more so in a sleep-like state with little memory of the procedure taking place.

Teeth Whitening in Oshawa

Our Oshawa cosmetic dentist offers teeth whitening to help brighten your smile. If you have noticed that your teeth have lost their white healthy appearance, then Oshawa teeth whitening would be a great addition to your oral health.

There are many reasons why our teeth lose their bright white color. These include genetics, medication, poor oral hygiene, aging, smoking, certain foods and beverages, or a combination of all the above.

Cosmetic Dentist Oshawa

Reasons for discolouring of teeth include:

  • Food, coffee, tea, wine, and soft drinks
  • Aging, it happens to the best of us
  • Smoking
  • Accidents that hurts a nerve will darken teeth
  • Root canal therapy

Our cosmetic dentists in Oshawa recognize that many of these lifestyle habits quite natural are difficult to completely avoid. Good oral hygiene can slow down this process, but some stains are harder to get rid of than others.

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular dental procedures and with new light-activated gels and high-intensity lights we have in our Oshawa dental office. The amazing results provide almost a no-brainer to make the decision to have this procedure done. We offer supervised and safe teeth whitening services by our Oshawa cosmetic dentist, including touch-ups for those who need an extra boost of whitening in between appointments. Although some mild tooth and gum sensitivity is a side effect during this treatment, please note that it is only temporary and will disappear when the treatment is over.

Our cosmetic dental team will be happy to evaluate your teeth and listen to your expectations during a consultation. Contact our office if you are in search of a million-dollar smile.

Emergency Dentist In Oshawa

We provide emergency dental care to ensure that patients can get the help they need right away. If you leave a damaged or infected tooth alone for too long, you will risk the infection spreading. It is common for teeth to sustain damage in a standard car accident, workplace injury, sports accident or other situation. These casual everyday events can lead to sudden tooth damage and if they do, you need to get to a dentist as soon as possible. While providing emergency dental care, we can fix a cracked tooth, chipped tooth or even a tooth that is knocked out.

To salvage a knocked-out tooth, rinse it and put it in a cup of milk, then get to our office as soon as possible. If you are suffering from a sudden toothache, come to our office where we will provide you relief. We will examine your teeth, look for any signs of infection or decay and treat the problem before you go from moderate discomfort to a severe toothache.

Root Canal In Oshawa

At our Oshawa dental office, we regularly perform root canal endodontic treatment in order to remove infections and save our patients' teeth. When a tooth becomes infected it can spread into the dental pulp, which is the center of the tooth. Inside the dental pulp are the nerves, connective tissue, and blood vessels. These are where all the sensitive areas of the tooth are contained. As such, when the area becomes infected it can be incredibly painful, requiring immediate treatment. 

Reasons to get a root canal:

  • Deep decay
  • Repeated dental procedures on the tooth
  • Faulty crown
  • Crack or chip in the tooth

Root canals in Oshawa are a common procedure that work by creating a small hole in the tooth so that all the infected areas can be removed. Once done, we will clean the area to ensure that the infection is gone. We usually prescribe antibiotics for aftercare as well. This treatment is extremely effective for saving damaged teeth. Once completed, eating and drinking become easy again.

Please get in touch with our Oshawa dentists at our Lake Vista Dental office to discuss if root canal therapy is the right option for you.

Dentures In Oshawa

Our Oshawa dentists recommend dentures as a reliable solution for replacing missing teeth. As with any dental solution, there are pros and cons to wearing dentures. Deciding if they will work for you will depend on your lifestyle and the goals that you have for your appearance, including the functionality of your smile. If only a few of your teeth are missing, partial dentures are a good solution for replacing them.

Partial dentures are held in place by a plastic base that is the same color as your gums. A metal framework is created in order to secure the base and prevent it from falling out. If you have natural teeth still in place, you cannot wear a full set, so a partial set of dentures is necessary. Partial dentures function differently that cosmetic dentistry solutions because dentures are removable and cosmetic dentistry is permanent.

When all your teeth are missing, complete dentures can replace them. Fortunately, our Oshawa dental office has the latest in denture technology, making dentures more comfortable and natural looking than ever. We can determine if this is the best way to replace your teeth or if an alternative solution will help you to achieve your goals. If you proceed with getting a complete set of dentures, your gums will be healed and ready in eight to 12 weeks after your teeth have been removed. After this time your dentures will fit securely.

For dentures in Oshawa, our dentists at our Lake Vista Dental office, we will be happy to discuss which dentures are right for you. Please contact us to schedule an appointment.

Gum Treatments In Oshawa

Our Oshawa dental office at Lake Vista Dental provides periodontic services to treat gum disease. In its early stages, we can treat periodontal or gum disease with nonsurgical periodontal therapy. This procedure called scaling & root planing.

Scaling & root planing is a detailed gum disease treatment designed to remove toxins and bacteria from root surfaces of the teeth, which allows the body’s immune system to begin the healing process. It is meant to eliminate bacteria that cause gum disease and to shrink periodontal pockets that house bacteria.

If the periodontic disease is severe, this therapy often comes before a surgical procedure. This is done to improve overall tissue quality prior to surgery and to help limit the areas requiring surgery. Antibiotics may also be used to help control the growth of bacteria that lead to gum disease. It is important to proceed with gum treatment as soon as possible because periodontal disease is progressive, and bacteria and calculus build up need to be removed to prevent infection.

We are here to help evaluate your gums and decide what treatment would work best with the level of severity.  Contact our Oshawa dentists at our Lake Vista Dental office to set up an appointment for an assessment on your gums.
