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

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry Oakville - Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry can be described as procedures designed to improve the appearance of a person’s teeth and gums, rather than to restore health or treat a medical dental problem. Many cosmetic services are commonly integrated along with restorative treatments though, in order to return the patient to an enhanced state of both form (appearance) and function (chewing).

Dr. Stephen Gaines and the team of professionals at Sherwood Dental in Oakville are skilled in performing a variety of cosmetic dental services. These can be used to correct a single aspect of a patient’s smile, deliver an overall image enhancement, or services can be combined to achieve an entire makeover. Any decision of a patient to pursue cosmetic dental improvements can contribute towards renewing their confidence and improving their self-esteem. While these are important to a patient’s overall wellbeing, a quality cosmetic dentist such as Dr. Gaines will ultimately be concerned with the overall oral health of the patient.

Cosmetic: Take-Home Whitening

About Dental Implants Video

Cosmetic dentistry is regularly used to correct and improve deficiencies such as missing or damaged teeth, unattractive gaps or crowded teeth, or unpleasant discolorations or stains. Innovative treatments are available, including such services as:

  • Teeth whitening – In-office or take-home methods, according to patient preference, to brighten a dull or discolored smile.
  • Porcelain veneers – Minimally invasive yet strong shell-like coverings for teeth. Suitable for correcting significant gaps, fractures, discolorations, as well as unevenness due to excess wear.
  • Orthodontics – Braces to straighten misaligned teeth.
  • Periodontics – Treatment of gum disease and underlying oral bone structure.
  • Porcelain crowns – Used cosmetically and as a restoration for severely damaged teeth. Preserves much of the natural tooth structure. Beautiful, sturdy covering for a prepared tooth to provide normal function and appearance. Also used with a dental bridge to affix it in place using adjacent teeth.
  • Bonding – Tooth-colored resin applied to teeth, often to correct minor gaps, chips, and color concerns. Bonding can also be used in situations to repair fractures and to reshape teeth for a more uniform appearance.
  • Tooth-colored fillings – Used to fill a tooth treated for a dental cavity. Strong composition for function, bonded to your natural tooth for strength, and more esthetically-pleasing than traditional amalgam, which is metal and silver in color.
  • Inlay/Onlay restorations – Strong, bonded and minimally-invasive alternative to large fillings or more invasive crowns.

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.
