Treatments to keep our clients smiling
Preventive measures help safeguard against decay and bacteria buildup, and may prevent the need for more extensive restorative treatment later on in life. To help our patients maintain their smiles, we provide a range of dentistry treatments at our London practice, The London Centre for Cosmetic Dentistry.
From simple routine cleanings to oral cancer screenings and the treatment of TMJ disorder, we are here for our patients.

Minor cosmetic flaws, such as small cracks, chips or unsightly gaps between two teeth, can be corrected through dental bonding. This restorative and cosmetic procedure requires zero downtime and is simple, quick and non-invasive.
The dental bonding procedure involves the application of a malleable dental resin directly to the tooth.
A dental crown is a cap that is employed to treat highly decayed, damaged, or malformed teeth.
Shaped like a tooth, a dental crown is referred to as a cap, as it encapsulates the tooth being treated.
Once excess or decayed portions of the affected tooth have been removed to provide space for the restoration and ensure a sound underlying structure, the dental crown is placed over top of the tooth.
A dental bridge is so named because it is designed to bridge gaps in the jaw. If you are missing a tooth, seeking prompt treatment is very important.
In the absence of a tooth, surrounding teeth will slowly begin to shift out of place to fill the void, resulting in malocclusion, which can cause discomfort, speech impediments and TMJ disorder.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are dental prosthetics that are designed to cap only the upper-most portion of the tooth.
Like dental crowns, they are fabricated from porcelain for durability, strength and cosmetics.
The prosthetic is then placed onto the affected tooth (inlays and onlays are used to treat rear teeth with cusps) and secured in place with dental cement.
If the pulp tissue (which contains blood vessels, connective tissue and nerve endings) in the root chamber beneath a tooth becomes infected, it can result in severe and constant pain.
In such cases, endodontic therapy, or root canal treatment as it’s more commonly known, is necessary to alleviate these symptoms and prevent the risk of further infection.
If you are missing most or all of your teeth, a dentist from our practice can discuss dentures with you in detail.
They can have a transformative impact on a person’s quality of life, as dentures make it possible to once more enjoy the foods that you love, participate in social activities and engagements, and feel confident and comfortable in your own skin.
Non Surgical Periodontal Treatment
The health of the gums is extremely important, as they provide a foundation for the teeth. If the gums are decayed or compromised, and left untreated, tooth decay and tooth loss can result.
At The London Centre for Cosmetic Dentistry, we are able to provide our patients with brilliant results, non-surgically.
Bad Breath Treatment
At The London Centre for Cosmetic Dentistry, home to the London Fresh Breath Centre, we have an extremely high success rate for bad breath cases and are confident that we can help you eliminate your problem, and in the process of doing so, regain your confidence and self-esteem.
Everyone has bacteria in their mouth, but certain people are at a higher risk of developing gum disease. Often, you cannot tell that you have gum disease unless you have been assessed by a dentist or hygienist, as it rarely causes pain since the infection travels up through the gums.
At the practice, our dentists are experts at diagnosing and treating gum disease and their treatment success rate is extremely high.
