At Dentistry on Bay, our dentists are professionals and have more than 40 years of combined experience in general dentistry. We are a general dental practice with a concentration in complex cosmetic procedures as well as periodontics. In the past, people had to accept their dental health condition. Today, we have the technology, products and services to bring it back better than ever.
We are proud to offer a complete set of in-house procedures and products that can be combined to achieve your desired cosmetic dental results. Our services include:
DENTAL CROWNS AND BRIDGES
A crown is a cap for a broken or worn tooth that will restore its shape and size. A crown will fully enclose the original visible portion of the tooth. Crowns are also important in holding a dental bridge in place. A bridge is meant to fill in one or more missing teeth and is made of an artificial tooth that is fused to crowns that support the bridge from adjacent teeth. Bridges and crowns can be used to improve the appearance and shape of specific teeth or the alignment of your overall bite.
A veneer is a thin shell of porcelain placed over a tooth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect the tooth’s surface from damage. They are resistant to stains and can be molded to provide the most natural appearance by matching the size, shape and colour of surrounding teeth.
Bruxism is the involuntary or habitual grinding of the teeth occurring, typically during sleep. Common causes of teeth grinding are: stress and anxiety, abnormal bite, crooked teeth, and sleep apnea. A night guard can be individually custom made.
At Dentistry on Bay we use the LumiBrite or LumiSmile professional teeth whitening system, an effective way to whiten teeth using safe and gentle methods. We have three options to choose from to get patients the luminous smile they have always wanted.
IN OFFICE CHAIRSIDE WHITENING – LUMIBRITE OR LUMISMILE
Whiten your teeth under carefully monitored conditions which allow for the safe and controlled use of a relatively high concentration of bleaching gel – yielding results that are visible immediately.
In as little as three minutes per day, LumiBrite or LumiSmile can give patients an effective whitening treatment from the comfort of their own home. Use the custom mouth trays for just over a week and achieve whitening with almost no increase in sensitivity.

A dental implant is a synthetic root made of titanium and inserted into the jaw to replace a natural root that has been damaged. The implant is used as an anchor point for an artificial tooth or as a support for bridges or dentures.
Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal therapy and is the procedure by which a dentist removes infected, injured, or dead tooth pulp. The root canal system is filled with soft pulp made up of nerves and blood vessels that your tooth requires to develop. When this pulp becomes infected, a root canal treatment will allow a patient to keep the tooth rather than requiring an extraction.
A removable prosthetic appliance can be fabricated to replace missing teeth that can be inserted and removed by the patient. They include complete or partial dentures.
