Unfortunately, not everyone feels good about their smile. At Southgate Dental Centre, we believe everyone deserves to feel proud and confident in their smile. We provide a variety of esthetic dental services in hopes of helping our patients feel like their smile is worth showing off.
All services are provided by general dentists.
Everyone wants a brighter smile than they currently have. We use Zoom! Dental Whitening to help you achieve that goal! Patients usually undergo three 15 minute applications, seeing up to 8 shades of difference in tooth colour. Although each treatment is under an hour, we do recommend that patients schedule a dental evaluation and cleaning before each whitening treatment.
Once your gums have been covered with a protective barrier, the dentist will apply a body-safe hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth. Using the special Zoom! Light to activate the bleaching agent, your dentist will allow the gel to process for 15 minutes while you watch TV, listen to music, or use an in-office iPads. Once the gel finishes processing, the dentist will apply a fluoride gel to your teeth to help reduce sensitivity.
Not every patient is eligible for Zoom! Whitening
Veneers are thin shells or covers which are adhered to teeth to help restore their look or function. These shells come in a variety of materials and can address all sorts of issues; from chips and cracks to gaps and discolouration. In addition to IPS Empress system veneers, we also offer Lumineers.
Lumineers are a type of veneers designed to help your smile appear brighter than its natural shade without undergoing any whitening treatments. Each set of Lumineers is made to fit your teeth. Your dentist take a mold of your upper and lower teeth, which is sent to the lab to help create your Lumineers.
Once the dental office received your custom Lumineers, you will come in for application. After a little bit of etching to help them stick, the dentist bond the Lumineers to your teeth, giving you an instantly brighter smile!
The VITA Easyshade® system helps identify the shade that matches your other teeth as closely as possible. This machine uses complex software and sensors to replicate and produce the correct colour.
The health and well-being of our patients is our top priority. With the escalation of COVID-19 coronavirus cases, our dental practice is suspending all elective and non-essential dental treatment. We will keep you informed as updates become available.
