Bonded Resin Veneers

A thin layer of resin (tooth-coloured filling material) is placed over the entire outside surface of the tooth to improve the appearance of the tooth and/or the smile. The resin material is molded into the desired tooth shape by the dentist chairside, cured and then smoothed and polished in one chairside appointment.

Porcelain Veneers

A thin layer of porcelain is placed over the entire outside surface of the tooth to improve the appearance of the tooth and/or the smile. The veneer is fabricated at a dental lab, and later cemented to the original tooth.

This is a two appointment process and considered a more permanent option compared to resin veneers. The porcelain thickness ranges from 0.5mm to 1.0 mm.

Bleaching

Our office offers two distinct bleaching systems, Kor and Whitening for Life, to achieve all of our patients' expectations and outcome goals.

KOR Whitening:

As of May 2013, we are excited to be offering Kor bleaching. While at a seminar, some American colleagues spoke very highly of a system manufactured in California with a money back guarantee as long as the dental office and patient followed all of its protocols. There are several differences with Kor compared to systems we have used in the past. Kor impressions are taken with a much more accurate material in the company's own impression trays. The bleaching trays are made by the Kor lab in California. They have an unquestionable seal, which prevents enzymes in the saliva from breaking down the active ingredient in the bleaching gel. The bleaching gel is shipped in refrigerated packs, which also prevent material breakdown and results in a consistency of results not seen with the other systems.

Kor has many different options, but one we recommend consists of both at home and in-office bleaching. It is our Kor Bleaching Max option. Other bleaching systems require either at home or in-office application, but generally do not combine both. However, best results are obtained when both in-office and at home bleaching is performed, as is the case with Kor.

We are one of only two offices in the Markham Unionville area presently using Kor. Dr. Hunter personally believes the company's attention to detail, consistency of results, and money-back guarantee make Kor a worthwhile investment. The fixed cost of the Kor system, due to the unique properties it offers, are higher. This is why the overall cost to our patients is higher. Kor also recommends continual maintenance, usually 1 night per month, after the initial bleaching procedure.

Whitening For Life:

For patients who want a simpler, cost efficient system we offer our at home bleaching. It consists of a quick appointment to take impressions. We fabricate your whitening trays at our office within a week or so. A second short appointment is needed to fit the trays and review the instructions with you. With this bleaching procedure we use 22% Carbamide peroxide, which you dispense in the custom-made whitening trays. The trays with the bleaching gel are then worn for 1 to 1.5 hours a day for 1-2weeks, depending on the patients individual results. Once a month 1.5 hour touch ups are recommended with this system.

If you are interested in brightening your smile, please ask our hygienists or dentists which option would suit your needs best. We are more than happy to explain each bleaching system in great detail, as well as its corresponding costs.
