Sherwood Dental....

We are open for business! Welcome Back!!!

We have missed seeing the smiling faces of our patients for what has felt like forever. The decision back in March to close Sherwood Dental due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as unprecedented as it was, was not taken lightly and was absolutely necessary for the safety of our team, our patients, and the community around us.

Our doctors, hygienists, assistants and administration team are very proud of how Sherwood Dental's preventative and minimally invasive philosophies of dental treatment and oral healthcare have kept so many of you free from emergency or urgent need while we have been unable to see patients in person.

Having gone above and beyond the most current guidelines for dental offices in Ontario (RCDSO) by implementing extra enhanced measures and aerosol management equipment, Sherwood Dental is open and ready to provide the complete level of care that our patients have been accustomed to for so many years.

Our focus at Sherwood Dental has always been one of striving to exceed our patients' expectations. As such, we have gone to great lengths and meticulous planning to assure that our patients and our team are in an environment that keeps everyone safe and healthy at all times. From the moment that you enter our office, during the time of your treatment, and until the moment that you leave, our enhanced protocols and specialized equipment will be in place for your added protection.

We are happy and excited again to be doing what we love to everyone with their oral healthcare needs and enjoy the time that we get to spend with all of our wonderful patients.

Looking forward to seeing your smiles really soon.

Stay well and healthy,
Dr. Gaines and your Sherwood Dental Team

Dental Bonding Oakville - Bonding

Dental bonding can provide a simple, fast, and economical solution for many problems. In some cases, it is used as a restorative treatment material. The material used for bonding is a composite resin. This is the same material we use to restore teeth affected by decay, or more simply put, to fill cavities; as well as to repair cracked or chipped teeth.

This material can be applied to many diverse cosmetic dental situations. Cosmetic uses include:

  • Filling or closing gaps between teeth
  • Altering undesirable shape of teeth
  • Lengthening teeth or evening out length
  • Improving the color and/or brightness of teeth
  • Replacement for amalgam or silver fillings
  • Protection of an exposed portion of a tooth’s root due to gum recession.

Bonding is a simple procedure, and anesthesia is not required for many cosmetic applications. The dentist will first select a resin that will blend with a patient’s natural tooth color. The tooth surface is roughened to accept the bonding better, and an application liquid is applied. The resin is applied over this coating, and then shaped and smoothed to the desired form. The bonding is exposed to a special light which hardens the material and activates the bonding of the resin to the tooth. The dentist then makes final adjustments to the shape and finish to give it a natural appearance.

While bonding offers a quick and inexpensive fix, it is not expected to be as durable as some other options, such as veneers or crowns. The bonding material can also break off if the patient is not careful. Normal oral hygiene should be practiced on bonded teeth just like a patient's natural teeth. It is suggested that a patient avoid biting down on hard things with the bonded surfaces, such as fingernails or ice, in order to avoid damaging the bonding. If the patient notices any problems, such as chipping or roughness, he or she should call the dentist for follow-up, and to have the bonding touched up.

The staff at Sherwood Dental have always been awesome. I never have to wait more than a few minutes for my appt, they are very prompt and efficient. They also always try to resolve my issues the first time I mention them. I feel that Dr. Gaines does not perform procedures that are not necessary, just to make money, as he has honestly told me before that I do not need certain things, when my previous dentist told me that I did (and Dr. Gaines told me why my other dentist may have suggested it, and why he did not necessary agree). Love these guys!

Fabulous Dental Practice - First off they value your time as much as you do. The entire team is happy to work there, which shows in the way they treat the clients. The equipment is top notch. I'm very happy even if they find a cavity.

About as much fun you can have with going to the dentist. The professional and caring attitude of the dentists, hygienists, and office staff make you feel like part of their family. And if you and the Argonauts are lucky, you might get to see the Grey Cup along with a few players they look after.
