Dr. Sara Shiewitz and the staff at Dr. Sara Shiewitz Dentistry in Toronto believe that each of our patients deserves a smile they can be proud to show off.

We invite you to learn more about the cosmetic dentistry procedures offered by Dr. Shiewitz and then contact us at 416.223.4181 to schedule your smile makeover consultation.
Teeth whitening is perhaps the most common cosmetic dentistry procedure at Dr. Sara Shiewitz Dentistry. Even the most beautiful smile can appear unhealthy or dull when teeth are stained or yellowed. There are many over-the-counter products available to whiten your teeth at home, but these products cannot match the whitening strength of the professional-grade treatments provided at Dr. Sara Shiewitz Dentistry.
Dr. Shiewitz offers both in-office bleaching and take-home whitening kits so you can choose the best option that works for you. Learn more about our whitening options here.
A dental implant is a metal post, usually made of titanium, that is surgically embedded into your jawbone to replace the root portion of a missing tooth. After a period of healing which allows the implant to fuse firmly with your jawbone, Dr. Shiewitz will create a replacement tooth to attach to the implant.
Dental implants can be used to replace one or more teeth. If you’re missing a single tooth, one implant and one replacement tooth will take care of your problem. If you’re missing several teeth in a row, a few carefully placed implants can support a permanent bridge. Similarly, if you have lost all your teeth, a full bridge can be permanently fixed in your mouth with a strategic number of implants. Alternatively, a full removable denture can be attached to implants for better support and retention but it can remain removable.
Dr. Shiewitz works with a periodontist or an oral surgeon who will place your implants. Dr. Shiewitz will then restore the implants according to the original plan, achieved by collaboration between you, your specialist, and Dr. Shiewitz.
An ideal candidate for dental implants:
- Is a non-smoker
- Has maintained good oral health
- Has healthy gums with no signs of gum disease
Taking Care of Your Dental Implants
Your new dental implants should be treated just like natural teeth. They require brushing and flossing at least twice every day and regular checkups and cleanings with Dr. Shiewitz at our North York, ON dental office. The better you take care of your implants, the more likely they truly will last you a lifetime.
At Dr. Sara Shiewitz Dentistry, we provide many various cosmetic dental techniques. Cosmetic dentistry includes more than just whitening teeth; it includes crowns, bridges, veneers, bonding, tooth colored fillings, gum recontouring, and Invisalign. Many of Dr. Shiewitz's patients combine a number of cosmetic dentistry procedures to achieve the ultimate in smile design.
To learn more about the cosmetic opportunities available to you, we encourage you to make an appointment to consult with a member of the Dr. Sara Shiewitz Dentistry team at our Toronto office.
