Making Markham Smiles Beautiful!

What do you notice when you look at your smile in the mirror? Are you happy with the appearance of your teeth and gums? Are your teeth straight and evenly spaced?

Cosmetic dentistry is concerned with enhancing your smile by focusing on the appearance of your teeth and gums. With a variety of cosmetic treatments, Markham Gate Dental Centre can bring your smile to life.

To produce lifelike and beautiful cosmetic enhancements such as crowns and veneers, we use Ceramic Reconstruction (CEREC) technology. This technology allows us to design and create these enhancements on a computer and produce them right in our office. The benefit to you is that you can have crowns, veneers or other enhancements quickly designed and fitted with only one appointment.

Here are a few of our cosmetic dentistry procedures:

Veneer (color correction) Cosmetic Procedures Veneer (color correction)

Veneers

Porcelain veneers close spaces between your teeth, change the shape and length of your teeth, and cover stains and damage to your teeth. Veneers can also be used to correct orthodontic issues such as gapped or misshapen teeth. We can fit you for veneers and place them on your teeth in as little as two appointments so you can have a smile that radiates confident beauty.

Crown Tooth Decay Crown

Crowns

A dental crown or cap is an artificial shell that replaces or enhances the visible part of your tooth. They are made of ceramic or porcelain material that is almost an exact match for your existing teeth. We use crowns to cover teeth with cosmetic issues that cannot be enhanced with veneers. With CEREC technology we can fit you for a crown and place it in your mouth within one visit!

Laser Whitening Cosmetic Procedures Laser Whitening

Teeth Whitening

Whiter teeth look healthier and are naturally beautiful. We offer a variety of whitening techniques. See our teeth whitening section for more information.

Contouring

Contouring is used to correct crooked, chipped or overlapping teeth by reshaping and enhancing these teeth with techniques similar to those used by a sculptor. We can add material to your teeth, or remove enamel from them, to gradually achieve teeth that are the ideal shape and size.

Bonding

Bonding is another method to reshape teeth or cover blemished or damaged spots on a tooth using a synthetic resin. This resin, which is coloured to match your tooth, is applied, shaped and then hardened using a special light.

FAQs — Click to reveal the answers to cosmetic dentistry questions

Q: Aren’t veneers just a type of crown?

A: No. Crowns are designed and created to completely cover a tooth and replace it in function. They are made to replicate a natural tooth’s biting strength. Veneers are a thin laminate that covers the existing tooth like a second skin. They are made to be extremely strong but they are not intended to replace a tooth.

Q: What foods and drinks can stain my teeth?

A: The worst culprits for staining teeth are drinks such as red wine, coffee, and tea. These drinks all contain tannins and natural dyes that can darken your teeth. The acid in soft drinks can also weaken the enamel of your teeth and make it prone to stains. Berries, some sauces and candy can also leave permanent stains on your teeth.

Q: How do celebrities and guests on makeover shows get such beautiful teeth so quickly?

A: It’s likely they used veneers. Veneers can be placed very quickly and they have a dramatic effect on your smile.

Q: Will my insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?

A: Your coverage will depend on your plan. We can help you understand your coverage and discuss treatments with your insurer.
