|August 2014 - Tips, eNews & More!
Warm weather, long days and so much to do!
There's always a palpable hurry in August to get as much done before the summer is over and it's time to go back to school.
The CNE at Exhibition Place is always a fun place to be on a summer's day. If you're like most people, a must-see attraction is the famed Food Building wherein you'll find all sorts of fantastical delights.
While it's fun to be gluttonous and enjoy yourself every once and a while, be sure to take care of your mouth and avoid eating anything too hot, too spicy, or too sugary. At the very least, chew sugar-free gum (preferably a gum like Trident Xtra Care Gum) after you eat. Chewing sugar-free gum helps protect your teeth and gums between meals as it helps the mouth to produce more saliva - the mouth's natural defense against acid. And don't forget: chewing sugar-free gum is no substitution for brushing, so make sure you still brush your teeth when you get home.
School is just around the corner...
If you are heading off to college or university, bring your good oral health habits along with you.
Be sure to check your school's student health plan as it may include dental coverage. Remember to review the coverage offered to you and let us know if you have
any questions. As for the younger kids, August is a great time to come in for a checkup before the hectic school year begins. Call or click here today to book an appointment.

|How Would You Rate Your Smile?
Is it a perfect TEN! A seven, or perhaps even lower?
Does your smile make you look younger, sexier, and smarter? It can.
When you look at pictures do you ever wish your teeth were straighter,
whiter, more aligned? Cosmetic dentistry allows dentists to perform
porcelain veneer 'smile makeovers' which can address all of these issues.
We are delighted to be able to offer this revolutionary technique to our
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are custom, porcelain facings that are bonded to the
front surfaces of your teeth to cover any imperfections and fix your
smile. The veneers are very thin, only about 1 mm thick. That same
thickness is "smoothed" off the natural tooth surface so when the veneer
is bonded to the tooth, the tooth feels and looks the same thickness as
before. Uneven, discoloured, or even damaged teeth can be restored or
repaired using this procedure.
