Have you ever considered undergoing some type of cosmetic dental procedure? Many people think that the problem must be serious in order to seek this type of dental help. In fact, many procedures are simple ones that yield big results. Take a good look at the condition of your teeth and determine if one of these four reasons will provide the motivation needed to see a dentist.

Take Care of Gaps Between Teeth

Have you lived with gaps between your teeth all your life? Perhaps you have lost a tooth and now have a gap that makes you hesitate to smile. There are several approaches that would help.

For gaps in general, consider veneers along with crowns. The combination will help make your teeth more uniform in size and also fill in those gaps. Once the work is done, those gaps will be history and your smile will look better than ever.

If you've lost a tooth, consider a combination of crowns and bridges to fill in the gap. The bridge is a single tooth substitute that spans the gap and fills in the empty space. Crowns that connect with the teeth on each side hold the denture in place. Only you will know that you have a false tooth.

Do Something About the Hue

Teeth can stain over time. From the beverages people consume to the sometimes less than diligent brushing and flossing that becomes part of the day, a yellow hue can develop. Fortunately, it’s possible to use whitening treatments and get rid of the yellow. Go with professional whitening under the care of your dentist and there will be no worries about ending up with teeth that are a little too white.

Straighten Crooked Teeth

All it takes is one crooked tooth to ruin a smile. This is especially true if the tooth happens to be in the front. The good news is that your dentist can use one of several cosmetic treatments to reshape or shift the tooth so the appearance is more natural. You may have to wear some type of brace for several months to a year, but retainers that fit on the back side of the teeth are also a possibility.

Protect Teeth From More Damage

The fact that your cracked tooth does not hurt is irrelevant. That crack weakens the tooth and increases the odds for all sorts of other damage to occur. Your best best it to talk with your dentist about getting a veneer for the tooth. The veneer will prevent the crack from getting worse and eventually leading to quite a bit of pain. It also helps to replace some of the strength that the tooth lost when it was damaged.

Remember that many cosmetic procedures do more than make your teeth look better. They can also correct issues that would ultimately make it easier to develop more dental problems. If you are not happy with your teeth for any reason, now is the perfect time to visit Markham Smile Centre dentist and learn how to schedule an full dental exam. Once the checkup is complete, you and the dentist can decide what needs to happen next.

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. =)
