Cosmetic dentistry can mean many different things. It is a broad term that is used to describe dentistry that enhances ones smile, and confidence. There are many different “cosmetic” procedures that can be done to enhance your smile including whitening your smile with bleaching, orthodontics, veneers, cosmetic crowns, and bonding with cosmetic restorative materials. And no, you are never too old to have cosmetic work done. In fact, some people are so fed up living with embarrassing smiles, that they initiate such treatment in their mid-life years. This can be a life changing at any point of your life.
If you are missing teeth, having trouble speaking or chewing, or if you are noticing strain when biting, bridges may be the ideal procedure to help make your mouth healthy and beautiful again. Bridges literally “bridge” gaps between teeth by filling them with strong, natural-looking artificial teeth. This treatment is not for everyone and a consultation with your dentist is needed.
Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented into place, fully cover the portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. Since dental crowns encase the entire visible aspect of a tooth, a dental crown becomes the tooth’s new outer surface. Crowns are used to rebuild broken or decayed teeth, to strengthen teeth and to enhance the cosmetic appearance of teeth. Crowns can be made out of porcelain, zirconia, metal or a combination of both.
Yes, it is very much possible with today’s improved materials. The best part of it is that it doesn’t require much of tooth cutting, and usually is a one visit appointment. The downside to this treatment is that is does not last as long as a crown or veneer due to the strength of the material, especially of the biting surface of a tooth.
These are used to correct the colour, form, and alignment of mainly your front teeth. Veneers are usually placed on the facial/lip surface of the teeth. This option requires at least two visits, and we do many planning sessions with our local lab technicians and our patient before finalizing the smile to ensure your satisfaction.
Many of us feel that our smiles are most striking when our teeth look especially white, but unfortunately, soft drinks, coffee, tea, 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 custom whitening kits and a one-hour, in-office Zoom Teeth Whitening System. You will be amazed at the difference one hour can make in whitening your teeth. It’s important to note that there is a variation as to the amount of whitening that takes place for each individual smile, but there is always an improvement. All smiles are as unique as their owners and we are happy to keep every smile at its optimal health.

ZOOM In-Office Tooth Whitening Etobicoke
This option is done within the office and shows results in about one hour, meaning that you can walk out of your dental appointment with a smile that is several shades lighter! In this option you do also receive the take home trays and 1 syringe of bleach so you can do at home touch ups if you would like in the near future. In office whitening uses a higher bleach concentration that is activated by the Zoom light. We isolate your teeth and cover your gums using a very thorough isolation process. We place the gel on your teeth and turn the light on for up to four 15 min intervals. The amount of intervals depends on how quickly your teeth whiten and how much sensitivity you may be having.
Moving, and aligning teeth accomplishes both the cosmetic and functional aspect of your smile. At Eatonville Dental, Dr. Leo Kovbel and Dr. Briza Silva perform the orthodontic treatment. It can be a simple one tooth movement to changing your bite completely to a more functional one.

Conventional braces involve the use of brackets that are bonded to the teeth. These brackets allow us to control the teeth more accurately so that we can fine tune their relationship to one another and create that beautiful smile.

The new removable invisible aligners will straighten your teeth without anyone realizing you are receiving orthodontic treatment.
