What We Offer

Cosmetic Dentistry

People seek cosmetic dentistry for a variety of reasons. Some people simply want to look younger, and cosmetic dentistry is like a dental facelift that can quickly “reverse” the natural aging process of the teeth. Many people have had unattractive teeth their whole lives and have always felt self-conscious because of them. They will rarely smile, which can often hide a warm side of their personality.

Having a beautiful, healthy smile is an important component to feeling good about ourselves. It's the first thing people see when they look at us - be it in person or in a photograph. There is no longer any reason to hide behind less-than-perfect teeth. At Westside Dental Centre, we specialize in a wide array of cosmetic dentistry procedures which include bonding, gum reshaping, tooth whitening, crowns, and veneers. We can help you to improve your smile for good, and you deserve dazzling results!

We know that a smile influences perceived attractiveness. Studies show that the preferred female smile shows natural teeth, a high lip line, a display of many teeth, and symmetry to the smile. The best male smiles reveal a moderate display of teeth, a moderate lip line, and symmetry. The most prevalent response for an attractive smile involves a light tooth shade for both males and females.

Dentures

The aging process affects every part of our body, even our teeth. One in five adults, including half of the over-55 generation, has at least one denture. Tooth loss is often the result of the antiquated dental philosophy encountered by seniors decades ago that advocated tooth extraction for dental problems instead of saving teeth. Consequently, senior citizens are more likely to have full or partial dentures replacing missing teeth than the rest of the population.

If you are shopping for dentures, you may be surprised to discover that strides in modern cosmetic dentistry make it possible for you to create a smile as natural as it’s even been. Modern dental technology has developed personalized dentures that can be as natural-looking as the teeth you were born with. Dental professionals personalize dentures by actually considering everything from the shape of your face and the tone of your skin to your gender before creating – one tooth at a time – a denture that offers the most harmonious interplay of individual tooth form, size, colour, and arrangement. These dentures offer high levels of comfort, fit, and performance.

Fresh Breath Centre

Our Fresh Breath Centre offers a uniquely successful, individualized treatment program in a caring and professional clinic setting. Our patients are given a thorough examination and are looked after with expert care and sensitivity. We at Westside Dental Centre understand the difficulties and stress that result from living with bad breath problems and welcome the opportunity to change your life!

Implants

Only a few decades ago, people who lost their teeth due to gum disease, neglect or accidents were relegated to wearing full or partial dentures to replace some or all of their teeth. Dental implants now allow dentists to replace individual teeth, create bridges, or create denture supports that are much more natural and better-fitting than normal dentures. Dental implants are titanium rods about a centimeter long that are placed inside the jawbone and serve the same purpose as the roots of teeth.

They can replace missing teeth and prevent bone loss under dentures. Implants require some minor surgery which is normally performed using local anesthesia. There is no pain during the procedure and post-operative pain is minimal.

One of our greatest sources of satisfaction is our patients’ reactions to implants. We constantly hear comments like, “They feel just like my teeth,” “I wish I’d gotten them sooner,” and “I can eat anything now!”

Smile Analysis

At Westside Dental Centre, your “smile analysis” will consider tooth shade, defects, crowding, spacing, visible fillings or crowns, the shape and size of your teeth, and the amount of gum tissue shown when you smile. Once you and Dr. DeGruchy determine the areas of your smile you would like to improve, a treatment plan for reaching an acceptable aesthetic result can be obtained.

Tooth Whitening

Being perceived as healthier and more attractive may be as simple as flashing a healthy white smile. Teeth turn yellow as part of the natural aging process. Tobacco, red wine, berries and other brightly-coloured foods cause staining. Chips, fractures or some kind of trauma, such as a sports injury, can also cause discolourations. In addition, there are many genetic issues that enter the picture. So, you can see, there are many reasons why teeth yellow. For many people, this change can happen slowly, over several decades.

Teeth whitening can be a highly effective yet very simple method of lightening the colour of teeth and does not require the removal of any tooth structure. Custom-fitted trays will be fabricated for you in our office. Once your treatment has been started here, you will be required to continue the process at home. This will require regular applications of the bleach over a period of about 2 weeks, with a follow-up visit with us so that we may monitor your progress.

Over-the-counter kits are not recommended as they contain only a small concentration of the bleach, reducing the effectiveness of the product. Some also contain mild acids, while others are abrasive. Although these products are cheaper, whitening is a complicated treatment procedure and should only be carried out by a dentist after a thorough examination and assessment of your teeth.
There is no doubt about it – a whiter smile definitely makes you look younger. And an extra benefit is that people with white teeth feel better about themselves! Let our knowledgeable staff help you to achieve the smile of your dreams.

Veneers

Today there are many amazing options that you have! Most people already know that crooked teeth are routinely corrected with the use of braces that usually require a considerable time commitment. However, many times crooked, stained, and unsightly teeth can be corrected with the placement of porcelain bonded veneers—a process that can take place over as few as two appointments! We invite you to come in for a comprehensive consultation to help you to decide if you are a candidate for such treatment and to answer any questions that you might have.
