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

The cost, benefits, and reviews of teeth bonding treatment in Oakville, ON


Dr. Gaines will fixed Discolored or chipped teeth
Discolored or chipped teeth can be fixed with a cosmetic procedure known as tooth bonding. This procedure entails applying resin material that matches the color of the tooth being repaired, which is bonded using a high intensity curing light – hence the name ‘tooth bonding.’

This procedure can be used to change the appearance of the teeth, making them longer, filling in the gaps between teeth or even changing the color. Bonding is the cosmetic procedure that can be used as a substitute for other more complex procedures. Patients should choose a good dentist for teeth bonding treatment in Oakville, ON.

Improvements with Teeth Bonding

Dental bonding is commonly used to repair the following:
  • Tooth decay – using composite resins
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Filling gaps between teeth
  • Cosmetic enhancement of small teeth
  • Alteration in the shape of teeth
  • Alternative to amalgam fillings
  • Protection of exposed roots due to receding gums

Dental Bonding Consultation

examination through x-rays
Deciding whether your dental health issues can be solved by bonding is a decision best left to your dentist. A thorough examination through x-rays, and tooth and gum evaluation may be conducted by the dentist. This consultation will determine if the condition of your teeth is going to be receptive to bonding. Issues mentioned above like decay or cracks in teeth, or discoloration will be taken into consideration before a procedure is performed. If extensive damage is found in your teeth, you may be advised to seek reconstructive and restorative aesthetic procedures, which have more lasting effects.

Bonding Procedure

Bonding is not an invasive procedure and does not require the use of anesthesia with an exception of fixing tooth decay. Your dentist matches the shade of the composite resin to your teeth.

A dentist sometimes uses tooth colored composite resin to repair damaged, chipped or cracked teeth, or to fill the gaps. It also is used to smooth rough edges around the teeth. It can be applied directly to teeth that are most visible when the patient smiles, and used to create an aesthetically pleasing smile.


Dental bonding has many benefits. It is commonly offered at a qualified dentist’s office and is affordable to most. It does not require many visits unless the patient needs more than one tooth to be repaired. Tooth enamel is not damaged or removed in bonding procedures, which sets it apart from veneers and dental crown procedures. No anesthesia is needed.

The limitations to this procedure are few. It is suitable for relatively small cosmetic corrections and temporary fixing of teeth situated in an area devoid of extra bite pressure. The dentist must be consulted in depth before deciding to pick a specific dental healthcare procedure, as it is dependent on the patient’s oral health or aesthetic state.
We are here to help you get the perfect smile.

How to Care for Bonded Teeth

bonded teeth is like natural teeth
Care of bonded teeth is like that of natural teeth. Good oral hygiene is necessary to keep the bonded teeth in good condition. As normally advised, teeth must be brushed twice a day and flossed every day. Along with this, regular check-ups with the dentist are recommended.

Dentists recommend that persons who repair their teeth through bonding avoid biting down on hard foods and surfaces. Chewing on pen caps, biting fingernails, chewing on ice cubes and foods with shells should be avoided at all costs to not damage the bonded teeth. Chipped bonds can be felt by the patient and should be reported to the dentist who applied the resin so that it can be repaired.

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!

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.
