At Bloor Dufferin Dental Centre we provide a wide range of dental treatments from consultation to emergency, from preventive to restorative, from children to adult dentistry, from regular maintenance to cosmetic. The dental services we provide are but not limited to:

Examination, x-ray, consultation

This is an important session which the dentist will reveiw your medical history and understand your dental concerns, examine your mouth, along with the xray a diagnosis is made. The doctor will recommend treatment and present alternative options for the problems. Depending on the nature of the findings, cost, insurance coverage, time and your primary concerns the dentist will help you sequencing the treatment plan.

Emergency treatments

Dental emergency such as Toothache or orofacial pain is unpredictable and unbearable. Missing or a broken front tooth is unattractive and may impair your social life. We'll try every attempt to address dental emergencies on same day or the next available appointment. New patients are always welcome at our clinic.

Periodontal therapy and maintenance

Peridontal therapy is the treatment of gum and bone diseases around the teeth. Periodontal therapy ranges from teeth cleaning, also known as scaling and or root planning to gum surgery depending on the severity of the problem. The treatment goal is to eliminate/minimize inflammation and infection of your gum by to removing the tartar and plaque around the teeth. This treatment helps your gum to become healthier, less likely to bleed and stronger teeth.

Dental bondings

Dental bonding is a conservative procedure in correcting minor problems such as chipped tooth, small space, discoloured or misalign tooth.It doesn’t need removing or grinding your tooth structure.A tooth-color filling is bonded to the tooth transforming the tooth to a more desired shape or shade.

Tooth colored fillings

Cavity or broken tooth can be filled with tooth color material, also known as white or composite resin fillings. Tooth-color fillings are more aesthetic silver filling. The filling is blended to your existing tooth shade making it difficult to be noticed.

Amalgam fillings

Amalgam fillings are also known as silver fillings because of its color. It is a mixture of liquid mercury and metal alloys. It has been used successfully as tooth filling clinically for over 150 years. In recent years its use becomes less popular because of availability of white fillings a more aesthetic alternatives and the controversial of mercury toxicity.

Root canal treatments

Root canal therapy is treatment for injured pulp (tooth soft core consists of nerve, blood vessels and connective tissue). When the infected pulp is not removed, pain and swelling can result. Without treatment, your tooth may have to be removed.

Crowns (caps)

Crown or cap is made of metal, ceramic fused to metal or ceramic. It is made to cover a tooth and restore it to its normal shape and size. It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there is not enough tooth structure left. It protects a week tooth from breaking or restores one that’s already broken. Crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discoloured or badly shaped. It is also used to cover a dental implant and on back tooth that had root canal treatment.


There's no reason to put up with gaps in your teeth or with teeth that are stained, badly shaped or crooked. Today a veneer placed on top of your teeth can correct nature's mistake or the results of an injury and help you have a beautiful smile.

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They're made by a dental technician, usually in a dental lab, working from a model provided by your dentist.

You should know that this is usually an irreversible process, because it's necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the shell.

Extraction - Simple, Surgical

Various words are commonly used to describe tooth extractions: simple, surgical, partially bony, bony, and root removal. Extraction of an erupted tooth in a healthy individual is a relatively simple, nontraumatic event that heals well in a few days to a few weeks. Teeth that are functioning well or have the potential to do so with restorations (fillings, crowns [caps]), should not be extracted. When a tooth is decayed, broken or infected, causing pain and discomfort and if tooth can’t not be saved, it needs to be extracted. Tooth is also removed for orthodontic and preventive purposes.

Teeth are impacted- usually wisdom teeth- may require extraction if the dentist feels that they will not erupt adequately. Such impacted teeth usually have nothing wrong with them, except that they are in improper positions and cannot function. Leaving them in place can cause disease by development of cysts (growths in the bone) or deviation of other teeth. Some impacted teeth do not require extraction.

Dental implants

Crowns and conventional bridges or dentures may not be your only options when replacing missing teeth. For some people, dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural. Surgically placed below the gums over a series of appointments, implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a denture.

Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.

Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by dentist will help determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants.


orthodontic treatment is used to correct malocclusion, involves teeth that are crowded or crooked. In some cases, the upper and lower jaws may not meet properly and although the teeth may appear straight, the individual may have an uneven bite.

Protruding, crowded or irregularly spaced teeth and jaw problems may be inherited. Thumb-sucking, losing teeth prematurely and accidents also can lead to these conditions.

Correcting the problem can create a nice-looking smile, but more important, orthodontic treatment results in a healthier mouth. That’s because crooked and crowded teeth make cleaning the mouth difficult, which can lead to tooth decay, gum disease and possibly tooth loss. An improper bite can interfere with chewing and speaking, can cause abnormal wear to tooth enamel, and can lead to problems with the jaws.

Removable Complete Dentures

If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury, complete dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile. Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag, making a person look older. You’ll be able to eat and speak—things that people often take for granted until their natural teeth are lost.

Removable Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures are inserted immediately after the removal of the remaining teeth. To make this possible, the dentist takes measurements and makes the models of the patient's jaws during a preliminary visit. An advantage of immediate dentures is that the wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. However, bones and gums can shrink over time, especially during the period of healing in the first six months after the removal of teeth. When gums shrink, immediate dentures may require rebasing or relining to fit properly.

Removable Partial Dentures

When you have a missing tooth or several missing teeth a removable partial denture can replace those giving you the ability to chew more effectively. It supports your collapsed facial muscles giving you back many years of youth and confidence. Removable partial denture is the most affordable treatment in replacing missing one or several teeth.


Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. The bridge can be made from gold, alloys, ceramic or a combination of these materials and is bonded onto adjacent teeth for support. Unlike a removable bridge, which you can take out and clean, a fixed bridge can only be removed by a dentist and require special care.


Nitrous oxide is a form of inhalation conscious sedation used for children and anxious patients. The mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen is administered by inhalation through nose-piece. The patient is relaxed and conscious during treatment. When nitrous oxide is administered properly, "laughing gas" is safe, effective and relaxing. Certain groups, such as pregnant women, should avoid nitrous oxide.
