Cosmetic dentistry can make a huge difference for anyone who is uncomfortable with the appearance of their teeth. You name the issue and there’s a good chance that a dental professional will have at least one cosmetic procedure capable of improving the smile. While the only way to know which treatments are right for you is to see a professional, here are some examples that demonstrate what can be accomplished.

Whiten The Teeth

One of the more common cosmetic issues is yellowed teeth. The discoloration can develop for a number of reasons. Beverages like coffee, tea, and wine can yellow the teeth over time. The use of tobacco products will leave stains as the years pass. Even less than satisfactory dental hygiene will take a toll over time.

Professional whitening treatments under the care of a cosmetic dentist can reverse the problem. While the approaches vary, opting for whitening by a professional avoids the possibility of damaging the teeth or achieving a look that is overly bright.

Undo Damage to Your Teeth

Various cosmetic treatments can restore the shape and appearance of teeth that sustain damage. Cracked or chipped teeth can be strengthened by the use of a combination of veneers and crowns. Along with improving the appearance and restoring the smile, this combination restores most of the strength those damaged teeth once possessed.

Fill in Gaps

Some people have gaps in their teeth that cause them to refrain from breaking out into a big grin. The good news is that a cosmetic dentist can use a technique known as bonding to correct the issue. When the dentist is done, the teeth will be proportioned properly while the gaps are gone. The result is a smile that anyone would be proud to share.

Repair Damage to the Gums

Did you know that cosmetic dentists can also help with gum issues? With the right approach to gum therapy in Markham, it’s possible to improve the appearance of the gums. Along with improving the smile, the therapy also strengthens gum tissue and will help you avoid quite a few dental problems in the future.

Replace Teeth That Can’t Be Repaired

Perhaps some of your teeth need to be replaced. A cosmetic dentist has several solutions to consider. Implants are one common solution. Whether you need to replace a single tooth or an entire set, there are implant options to consider. For example, the all on four solution may be just right.

You may also be a candidate for some type of dental bridge. There are bridges designed to fill gaps left by a single missing tooth as well as solutions that work well when you are missing two or three teeth in a row. With any of these approaches, your smile will look better than it has in years.

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. =)
