A mouth guard helps you safeguard and protect your teeth from bruxism (grinding your teeth and clenching your jaw subconsciously). This will protect your teeth from damage and restore quality to your sleep.
Are Mouth Guards Essential?
Yes. Teeth grinding can eventually lead to irreversible structural damage of your teeth. Without corrective actions, you may end up paying a higher price later on. Although you can buy mouth guards online, it's still advisable that you get custom mouth guards from a dentist for better protection against teeth grinding.
Dental veneers are not only useful to fix cavities or broken teeth but are found to be very useful to improve the visual appeal of your teeth. Veneers are very thin shells, which are applied to the surface of your tooth to modify shape, spacing or colour. It’s possible to make your teeth look better by fixing your broken, cracked or chipped teeth using veneers.
How Veneers Are Done?
Veneers are made of porcelain or composite resin. Porcelain veneers are stronger and resistant to stains. Usually, it takes two dental visits for the application of porcelain veneers. Composite resin veneers can be done in a single visit. Schedule your consultation today!
Can I Get Veneers?
Well, only your dentist can answer that question after a thorough dental examination. Dental veneers aren’t for everyone. You may not be an ideal candidate for veneers if you have any one of the following conditions:

Teeth Whitening in Etobicoke
If your teeth have lost their pearly white, healthy appearance; you are not alone. Aging, diet, injuries and many other factors cause teeth to dull and yellow. At East Mall Family Dental we offer teeth whitening in Etobicoke. Teeth whitening removes discolouration caused by aging, smoking, tobacco use and much more.
Safe When Supervised by a Professional
With the rise of personal appearance television programs, teeth whitening procedure has become a popular dental procedure. Whitening is a mild bleaching process that restores stained or discoloured teeth to a healthy, natural colour. It is very safe under the supervision of a dental professional. At East Mall Family Dental we have trained professionals that know the safest procedures to have your teeth whitened in Etobicoke.
WHY DO TEETH DISCOLOUR?
The results from whitening can last for as long as a year – and with touch-up treatments (at home) every few months, results can last even longer. Touch-ups are especially useful for patients who drink beverages that are prone to stain teeth: such as coffee, tea and red wine. Other reasons for tooth discolouration include:
Some patients may experience heightened tooth sensitivity or mild gum sensitivity during treatment, but these symptoms are only temporary and disappear within a few days after the treatment is finished. Feel free to ask East Mall Family Dental about professional tooth whitening in Etobicoke, as well as over-the-counter agents. Together, we can compare treatments and determine which solution will be most effective for you.
Bonding can lighten any stains on your teeth, close up minor gaps and correct awkward-looking crooked teeth. Bonding itself is a composite resin filling placed on your teeth. Composites are the materials used for restoring decayed teeth, making cosmetic improvements and even changing the colour and reshaping of teeth. Bonding has become a common procedure and can usually be completed in one short visit.
The bonding procedure starts by first applying a thin coating on the front surface of your teeth to which the bonding material is applied. Bonding material can be sculpted, coloured and shaped to provide just the look and feel you want.
Next time you’re in East Mall Family Dental, ask a dentist if bonding can improve your smile. It may be just the solution you’ve been seeking.
Do you have silver fillings in your smile? Do they cause you to hide your teeth when you speak? Are you allergic to metallic filling?
Amalgam or metallic fillings were the standard practice until recently in dentistry. The amalgam was needed for its strength, especially on chewing surfaces and for large cavities. These filling materials made the filled cavity completely obvious and sometimes corroded and leaked, blackening the silver and often the tooth itself.
White or composite fillings are made of a porcelain-like material that actually bonds to the tooth for a tight seal. The material is strong enough for chewing surfaces and lacks the sensitivity associated with amalgam fillings. Cosmetically, white fillings are stain-resistant and colour matched to your natural tooth – making the fillings almost invisible.
