One of your resolutions for the upcoming year is to get back into the habit of seeing a dentist regularly. In fact, you already have a checkup set in the coming weeks. Once you do go back and get into the habit again, there are several benefits you will notice. Here are a few examples.
Dental Issues Are Corrected
The great thing about checkups is that the dentist will determine if there is any issue in the early stages. That’s important for two reasons. Finding the issue now rather than later will likely mean a less complex procedure will get rid of it. You also have the chance to correct the issue before it can cause any more damage. The result is that instead of losing a tooth, you get to keep it for decades.
Your Teeth Look Better
Your dentist can also recommend procedures that will improve the general appearance of your teeth. Perhaps you have that one crooked tooth that tends to impair your smile. Maybe you’ve been grinding your teeth and a couple have started to chip or crack.
There are two choices. You can do nothing and allow the situation to worsen. Another approach is to undergo simple treatments that repair your teeth and improve your smile. Many cosmetic dentists can take care of these types of issues during a simple office visit. Depending on the type of procedure needed, you may not even need sedation.
There’s No Pain
Maybe you’ve been having pain that seems to come and go. Lately it comes and stays for longer periods. You’ve also noticed a little swelling under one or two teeth. Understand that these issues are signs that something is wrong and needs to be corrected before things can get any worse.
While you might try home remedies, the best they will do is dull the pain. They won’t eliminate the underlying cause. After you see the dentist and the problem is resolved, there will be no more pain. In fact, you will feel better than you have in quite some time.
You Smile Without Hesitation
Your teeth are straight, free of cavities, and in general look fantastic. The one thing that bothers you is the dull shade of white. Did you know that teeth whitening under the care of a dentist will restore the brighter white of years past? Treatments administered in the office will make a difference quickly, or you can opt for home treatments suppled by the dental professional. With either choice, your teeth will look better and the temptation to smile behind a napkin will go away.
Never assume an issue with your teeth or gums is too minor for a dental expert. Have annual checkups and feel free to check into cosmetic procedures that improve and protect the teeth. In the years to come, your efforts will pay off in a big way.

Everyone here is very friendly and provides excellent care. I received a full exam on my first visit, and everyone took time to answer my questions and ensured I felt comfortable the entire time - exactly what you want when visiting the dentist. I highly recommend Markham Smile Centre for anyone looking for great dental care.
There is an ample parking space before you get into the office. The receptionists welcome us friendly with proper COVID-19 procedures in place. The staff worked with patient very patiently and professionally. My teeth cleaning was done by Ying, she explained every detail to me and I did not feel any pain or uncomfortable at all. Thanks to the best team !
It's been a while since I've been to a dentist but I'm trying to get back on track with health in general. Overall it was great going to Markham Smile Centre! The receptionist (I believe she was Kim) was friendly. The hygienist, Ying, was attentive and gentle during the cleaning; x-ray tech (forgot her name, sorry!) was great too. Dr. Sara Riad explained things with good detail. Looking forward to going back!
I was someone who was nervous and anxious about visiting the dentist, but the team at Markham Smile Centre has made me feel SO comfortable. Kim is so patient and helpful and Dr. Hwang and Rory are both so professional and wonderful. They thoroughly explain the procedure to make you comfortable beforehand and are very gentle. I now look forward to visiting the dentist!
I found this place on a whim when I was looking for a new dentist in Markham. My hygienist ying was super nice and her cleaning was very gentle yet thorough. I saw Dr.Jason and he was very nice and informative in regards to what needs to be done and provided me with all the information I needed to make a choice. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a new dentist, they’re accepting new patients!!
I have been to many dentists in my life, Dr. Jason is easily the best dentist I have ever been too. He does everything he can to make you comfortable no matter the procedure and is a true professional, as does all the staff at Markham Smile Centre. Truly an amazing dentistry
The clinic was clean and the staff was very polite. I particularly liked the fact that everything was explained to me before going in for the procedure so I knew what to expect at each step. The dental hygienist who did the cleaning for me was also very gentle and took my concerns into consideration. I will definitely recommend them.
Upon arriving to the Markham Smile Centre, my son and I were greeted with a warm welcome by the receptionists. The hygienists and Dentist were very gentle and transparent with what they were doing. The hygienist that worked on my 9 year old son was patient and very friendly with him, which helped ease his nerves. Our overall experience was A+.
Since I was little, I have always hated going to the dentist... Its always uncomfortable and unpleasant. These days, visiting the dentist isn’t so bad! Dr Jason, Rory, and the lovely staff at reception make the experience 100x better. I have had absolutely no issues with the gum graft and cleanings that I’ve gotten done here. Everyone is incredibly friendly and helpful, even when I’m calling in or emailing a hundred questions :). I would highly recommend Markham Smile Centre.
Love this place! All the staffs are friendly and Professional and I mean all, cause I've been to most of their office, Markham , Stouffville, North York, and Maple. Dr. Ko is very professional and patient. Whenever I have questions and concerns he would always reply me . I would say this this dental office take care of you all the way. I would highly recommend everyone to come here for any dental works. =)
