Children's Dentistry in Whitby

Looking for an experienced children's dentist in Whitby? Our dental team at Lake Vista-West Lynde would be glad to help. Dr. Wurman, Dr. Reinblatt and their experienced team recognize the pivotal importance of oral health from the earliest of ages. Children's dental needs are of particular significance, as they define how a child's oral health will evolve through adulthood.

Dental Implants Whitby

Our commitment to children's oral health is evident from the care we take with your child while they are in our office. We invite you to bring your child to our office and allow them to get acquainted with our team before their first appointment.

To recognize potential problems and focus on prevention, we recommend that you bring your child for an appointment around their third birthday. If you have any concerns beforehand, we would be pleased to see your child and assess their condition.
As your child reaches the age of three, they will likely have their primary teeth, twenty in total. Their permanent teeth will soon follow, making regular dental visits extremely important.

During your child's first visit, our dentists will:

  • Examine their mouth, teeth, and gums
  • Evaluate adverse habits like thumb-sucking
  • Check to see if they need fluoride
  • Teach you about cleaning their teeth and gums
  • Suggest a schedule for regular dental visits.

We understand that visiting the dentist at a young age can be an exciting experience. New faces, new sounds, unfamiliar surroundings...and that's all before you even sit in 'the chair'. We encourage parents to prepare their children for their first dental appointment by talking to them about the dentist, their experience, and how the process is expected to go.

To our dentist in Whitby, your child's comfort is a priority. Years of experience with children in a dental environment has helped us to create a smooth and relaxed dental experience. An early introduction to the dental office will help to ease future anxiety, as well as promote the best smile your child can have, one tooth at a time!

Dental Fillings in Whitby

Our dental offices at Whitby offers cosmetic white or composite fillings to replace amalgam fillings. Still have silver fillings in your smile? Talk with our dentist today to find out how white fillings can help.

Dental Implants Whitby

Amalgam or metallic filling were the standard practice until not so long ago in dentistry. The amalgam was needed for its strength, especially on chewing surfaces and for large cavities.

However, amalgam fillings have several downsides. Their metallic color highlights the cavity, letting everyone know that a restoration has been done. The material which they are composed of can corrode and leak blackening the silver and often the tooth. There are also people who have an allergy to mercury, which is found in the silver amalgam. We now offer composite fillings as an alternative for people that have allergies or for those who want to maintain their beautiful smiles.

Composite fillings, or white fillings, are an effective, durable, and attractive way to fill cavities and strengthen a decayed tooth. Cosmetic fillings are made from composite resin material that restores teeth to their most natural appearance. The material used in this cosmetic dental service is carved into the appropriate cavity shape while it is still soft, and then hardened with a curing light. Polishing ensures a smooth surface that looks and feels like your natural tooth. Composites are attractive and very durable, lasting several years without posing the threat of further damage.

If you're unhappy with the silver in your smile, talk to us about white/composite fillings by

Dental Bonding in Whitby

Dental Bonding in Whitby Looking to change the appearance of your teeth or fix cracked or chipped teeth? Learn more about dental bonding at our Whitby dental office. Bonding is a composite resin that can be placed and bonded to your teeth. Composites are the materials used for restoring decayed teeth, making cosmetic improvements and even changing the color and reshaping of teeth.

Dental Implants Whitby

Bonding has become a common procedure and can usually be completed in one short visit at our Whitby or dental clinics! Bonding will cover any natural flaws by first applying a thin coating on the front surface of your teeth to which the bonding material is applied. Bonding can be sculpted, colored and shaped by our skilled dental team to provide the look and feel that you desire.

There are many cases in which our Whitby dentists may recommend having teeth bonding done.

Dental Bonding is a versatile treatment and can be used to:

  • Repair decayed teeth
  • Fix cracked or chipped teeth
  • Close gaps between your teeth
  • Change the shape of your teeth
  • Improve the look of discoloured teeth

Bonding involves the application of a tooth-colored resin. Our dentists prepare the tooth for bonding by placing a mild chemical on it to roughen the surface. Using a shade guide, we select a shade that closely matches your tooth and then mixes and tints the resin. The resin is applied in thin layers and then hardened with an ultraviolet light or laser. We then shape and polish the resin to smooth it and give it a natural look.

The procedure usually takes about 30-60 minutes to complete. You can even get several teeth bonded in one visit. No special techniques are needed to care for bonded teeth - just good oral hygiene.

Contact our dental office in Whitby today to ask us if dental bonding can improve your smile.

Dental Crowns in Whitby

 Our cosmetic dentist in Whitby offers porcelain dental crowns to restore and strengthen damaged teeth. A porcelain dental crown is a custom-fitted covering that sits over the top of a damaged tooth. The dental crown creates a surface that protects, covers, seals and strengthens your tooth.

Dental Implants Whitby

Crowns are used in many different scenarios and often allow us to save a tooth rather than turning to an implant.

Situations where a crown may be the solution include:

  • Larger fillings that have broken down or have formed decay around them may need a crown to save the tooth.
  • A cracked tooth may need a crown to hold it together. Be careful not to wait too long as an untreated cracked tooth can become sensitive or eventually break.
  • Teeth that are very sensitive, either from a lot of "wear" or from receded gums sometimes require crowns to seal and protect the teeth from hot and cold sensitivity.
  • A tooth that has broken may be too weak to hold a filling. A crown will hold the tooth together and prevent it from breaking again. If the fracture is too deep, Root Canal Therapy may be required before the tooth is crowned.
  • A tooth that has undergone Root Canal Therapy will need a crown to properly seal and protect the tooth.

A dental crown may be the solution to saving that tooth; we will evaluate your needs depending on your oral health and the condition of your teeth. Contact our  Whitby cosmetic dental office to learn more!

Dental Implants in Whitby

 Missing teeth? There are many different dental implant options available at our dental office in Whitby. A missing tooth is more than just an aesthetic concern. All too often, an individual missing a tooth in the back of their mouth will have an "out of sight, out of mind" mentality. This can be a huge oversight! It is more appropriate to think of a missing tooth as a space where a tooth used to be.

Above and beyond aesthetics, a tooth's purpose includes:

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

Without a tooth in place, the surrounding teeth can shift, causing gaps and making decay more likely. Bone loss and damage can occur. The area can become more apt to periodontal disease. And the list goes on...

Dental Implants Whitby

To avoid bone loss, maintain the proper spacing of your teeth and avoid the maladies associated with a missing tooth, an implant may be required. An implant will take the place or more appropriately fill the space that your missing tooth once held.

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 replacement tooth. Once the post has settled an artificial tooth is attached to fill the space that was once your missing tooth.

A dental implant often gives back a patient's confidence in their smile, the ability to eat comfortably and a clean, healthy oral environment. Dental implants look and feel exactly like natural teeth, no one other than you and your dentist will be able to tell the difference.

There are many different dental implant and sedation options available. Contact our Lake Vista cosmetic dental office in West Lynde cosmetic dental office in Whitby to discuss the benefits and process of implant prosthetics.

Dental Veneers in Whitby

Our cosmetic dentist team offer custom veneers to enhance the look of your smile at our Whitby dental offices. Dental veneers are custom, porcelain facings that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are made to match the shape and size of your mouth and created at the whiteness level that you desire. To perform the procedure the thickness of the veneer is "smoothed" off the natural tooth surface and the veneer is bonded to the tooth.

Dental Implants Whitby

The result feels and looks natural.

Veneers serve many purposes and can be used to:

  • Straighten crooked teeth
  • Close gaps in teeth
  • Whiten dark, yellow, permanently stained or discolored teeth
  • Repair broken or chipped teeth
  • Enhance your overall smile making you feel more confident.

We would be pleased to discuss Veneers with you on your next visit. After a consultation if you decide that dental veneers are right for you, our cosmetic dental team will help you create the smile you've always dreamed of. Contact our cosmetic dentists at our Whitby dental office to learn more!

Dental Surgery and Sedation Dentistry in Whitby

There may be times when removing teeth is necessary, such as in the case of wisdom teeth removals or root canal treatments. Some of the reasons that may cause a tooth to be removed are decay, crowded teeth, infections, and gum disease.

Dental Implants Whitby

For the most simple of extractions, our Whitby dentists can simply loosen your tooth and remove it with dental forceps. These simple extractions are usually quick and don't have many steps or possible complications.

More complex extractions are less common but require more time and precision. Our Whitby are trained and skilled in this area to ensure that the extraction goes as painless and comfortable for you, the patient, as possible. For patients who have high dental anxiety and phobias, we offer sedation.

Sedation Dentistry:

Our Whitby dental teams are committed to making our patients as physically and emotionally comfortable as possible while we provide restorative, preventative and cosmetic dental services. For this reason, we offer sedation to patients who may feel stressed or anxious at the thought of a dental appointment. At your request and with consultation with your dentist, we can use anesthesia during your treatment to put you into a relaxed state (almost like sleep!).

Sedation is mostly used for treatments that require more time, for patients who have dental phobia, or for patients who have a hard time staying still (such as children). After sedation, patients are not unconscious, but rather in a "sleep-like" state where they do not remember much from the treatment.

If you think that sedation is the solution to your dental phobia, Contact our Whitby dental clinics today to discuss how we can make your dental visits the most comfortable!

Teeth Whitening in Whitby

Our cosmetic dentist in Whitby offers teeth whitening to brighten your smile. If your teeth have lost their pearly white healthy appearance, you are not alone. Aging, diet, injuries along with many other factors cause teeth to dull and yellow. With the increase in over the counter whitening products and the immediate results, Teeth Whitening has become a popular dental procedure.

Reason for Tooth Discoloration include:

  • Drinking coffee, tea, wine or soft drinks stains teeth
  • Natural aging - The dentin underneath the enamel of a tooth darkens
  • Smoking or any tobacco use stains teeth
  • Accidents - a dead nerve will darken a tooth
  • Root Canal Therapy

New breakthroughs in light-activated gels and high-intensity lights now make it possible to achieve a white, brighter smile - right here at our cosmetic dental offices in Whitby.

Dental Implants Whitby

Supervised Teeth Whitening is safe and the results can last for a long time (with touch-ups treatments every few months results can last even longer). "Touch-ups" are especially useful for patients that drink beverages that are prone to stain teeth, such as coffee, tea and red wine. Some patients may experience heightened tooth sensitivity or mild tooth or gum sensitivity during treatment, but these symptoms are only temporary and disappear after the treatment is finished.

Feel free to ask our dental team about professional tooth whitening as well as over the counter agents. Together you can compare treatments and determine which solution will be most effective for you.

If you are interested in bringing out the white in your teeth, Contact our Whitby dental office today! Our cosmetic dentist teams will evaluate your teeth and expectations. Together with you, we will determine if teeth whitening is the solution for your smile.

Emergency Dentist in Whitby

Root Canal Treatments In Whitby

Performing root canal endodontic treatment is a service we offer at our Whitby dental office. Due to its high success rate, a root canal procedure is considered one of the most effective methods of saving and retaining a tooth that has been severely compromised by dental decay or injury.

ROOT CANAL TREATMENTS

If you need a root canal it is because the dental pulp has become irreversibly damaged or has died. However, if enough intact tooth structure remains and there is healthy bone support around the compromised tooth, you do not need to have the tooth extracted.

When patients should get a root canal:

  • Decay of the tooth is beyond repaid
  • Tooth has already had several procedures on it
  • Crown is faulty
  • Tooth is cracked or chipped

During this treatment, our Whitby dentist will remove the injured or infected pulp from inside the tooth and them will clean, disinfect, shape, and seal the tooth to prevent future infection. Keeping your tooth means your adjacent teeth will not shift out of alignment and cause jaw problems. Maintaining your oral health is crucial for your overall well-being. An effective way to prevent root canal treatment is to have a proper oral hygiene routine. If you notice pain or sensitivity in a tooth, call us and schedule an appointment to see if root canal treatment can help.

Please call our Whitby dentist at our West Lynde Dental office if you believe that root canal is required.

Dentures & Partial Dentures In Whitby

Our Whitby dentist have decades of experience in dentures. If you have lost some or all of your teeth, reach out to our dental office in Whitby to find out if dentures are the right option for you. Dentures are artificial teeth that replace your teeth.

DENTURES whitby

A tried-and-true tested method of smile restoration, dentures can replace teeth that you’ve lost for any number of reasons, including:

  • Injury or trauma
  • Decay
  • Advanced periodontal disease
  • Aging

Dentures are removable. They come in two main forms: partial dentures and full dentures. Partial dentures are available for those who have lost some of their teeth. They 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 are missing all your teeth, then full dentures can replace them. Technology has made it possible for dentures to be more comfortable and natural looking than in the past. Dentures can help you look younger, eat easily and speak comfortably. At a consultation appointment at our Whitby dental office, we will be able to work with you and help you decide if dentures will help you achieve your oral health goals.

Gum Treatments In Whitby

Our Whitby periodontal dentists are here to help with gum treatments/periondtal work needed by our patients. Periodontics refers to the dental specialty that pertains to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease that affects the gums and jawbone.

Gum Treatments In Whitby

Periodontal disease is a progressive condition which begins with mild gum inflammation called gingivitis. It is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults living in North America and can be a very serious condition if left ignored. Although the telltale sign of periodontal disease, or gum disease, is red, swollen, painful, or bleeding gums, there are also cases where there are no noticeable symptoms at all.

Periodontal disease generally begins when the bacteria living in plaque starts an infection in the surrounding tissues of the teeth, causing them to become irritated and painful.  Eventually, this infection will make the jawbone recede and loosen the tooth. At our office we can perform a deep scaling to remove the bacterial plaque and calculus (tartar) from the teeth and tissues.  If the periodontal disease is advanced and the jawbone has regressed significantly, a more intensive cleaning may be recommended and loose teeth that cannot be saved will be removed.
We offer exceptional periodontist services by skilled dentists who are trained in all aspects of dental implant procedures, that can restore functionality to the mouth when teeth have been affected by periodontitis.

Since periodontal disease is progressive, it is important to remove the bacteria and calculus build up to halt the spread of the infection.  We will be happy to advise you on effective cleaning methods and treatment options should you qualify for this service. Call our Whitby dentists at our West Lynde Dental office to book an appointment for us to assess your gums.
