tooth Emergencies

If you are in pain, swollen, or have a broken tooth, we can help you. Call us now at: 514-697-9053


tooth How we Sterilize Our Equipment for Your Safety

1. Instruments are first rinsed in water

2. They are placed in a disinfecting ultrasonic bath

3. After the bath, they are rinsed, dried, then sterilized in a STATIM steam autoclave.

4. Spore tests are done on the autoclave monthly to make sure that there is 100% sterilization.

5. Instruments such as handpieces that can't be immersed in liquid are wiped with a surface disinfectant and are also placed in the STATIM steam autoclave.

6. Hard surfaces like countertops, hoses, etc. are wiped with a surface disinfectant twice - the first time to remove debris; the second, to disinfect.


tooth How we Reduce Your Anxiety


1. We will walk you through the entire procedure to make sure you know what's going to happen. 

2. We will tell you what to expect in terms of freezing - which a lot of people are most anxious about.

3. Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) is available if so desired to help you relax

4. We encourage you to bring an mp3 player to listen to your favourite music.

5. Finally, if you are very anxious, then we may prescribe a sedative.


tooth Preventive Dentistry

We want to make sure you and your family have a healthy mouth for years to come.  By diagnosing problems when they are small, we can prevent them from becoming big problems later.


tooth Cleaning

Both dentists will clean your mouth personally to make sure you are comfortable and have healthy mouth.


tooth Digital X-rays

Digital x-rays means significant reduction in the radiation used to image the teeth in your mouth. 




tooth Aesthetic Dentistry and Restorative Dentistry: Designing the Smile you Want or Giving you Back the Smile you Had

When you first book your appointment with us, we have to know: Do you want a checkup? Is something wrong (pain?) or is there some thing else you want?


We will then do a comprehensive full-mouth exam with x-rays so we know  the true state of your mouth.


We accomplish aesthetic and restorative dentistry using the following:


tooth Teeth Whitening


If your teeth are discoloured or stained, we can provide professional whitening to restore a whiter smile.


tooth Porcelain Crowns


A crown is a piece of material that completely and

permanently surrounds your tooth - providing aesthetic and structural improvements to your mouth. 


Porcelain crowns use ceramics to match the colour, feel and look of your other teeth.

tooth Bridges


A bridge is a fixed partial denture used to replace a missing tooth.  This is accomplished by joining the missing tooth to the teeth beside the space.


tooth Veneers


A veneer is a thin layer of material whcih placed over a tooth, either protects it or improves its appearance.  It can also change it's shape or colour.


tooth Dental Implants


If you have broken, missing or severely decayed teeth, then a dental implant may be needed.


A dental implant is an artificial tooth that is designed to provide aesthetic and structural improvements to your mouth. 


They can last up to 20 - 25 years making it a safe and long-lasting solution

Dentures are artificial teeth that are used to replace your missing teeth. They can be partial or complete. 


Partial dentures are made when there are some useful remaining teeth.


Complete dentures are used when there are no remaining teeth.
