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

Veneers, in turn, can be used for covering large gaps and re-shaping teeth to create a better smile. Fixing the gaps between teeth is an easy process that can ensure huge rewards.

Teeth whitening serves as a wonderful solution in case of stained or yellowed teeth. Many other methods can also be used for addressing the issue. Teeth whitening procedures can be used for sensitive teeth as well. You should consult with the cosmetic dentist to identify which procedures work for you.

Advantages of Cosmetic Dentistry

Advantages of Cosmetic Dentistry

Restore a Beautiful Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry

Beauty experts confirm that the smile of a person outranks hair, eyes, and body as dominant physical features. A smile serves as a vital element of the way others view and perceive you. It also affects how you view and perceive yourself every day as you look in the mirror.

A smile boosts your confidence. When a person is greeted with a smile on the face, it activates the brain’s reward system, and the person is more likely to respond with a smile due to the release of those positive chemicals. Smiling and eye contact allows you to be more approachable and represents you as a friendly person.

You can place your best face forward with cosmetic dentistry. You can smile the way you always wanted to, and create happy relationships not only at home but also in the office and around your town!

Oral Health and Cosmetic Dentistry

You can ensure natural, sustainable results for your smile if you select an experienced and qualified cosmetic dentist. Some oral health benefits provided by cosmetic dentistry include:

The Motivation for Maintaining Good Oral Hygiene

Maintaining Good Oral Hygiene
When you invest time and money in improving your smile, you are more motivated to maintain the results. You may prefer to change your eating and drinking habits with an improved smile. You will more likely start avoiding foods and drinks that may darken or stain your teeth. Avoiding teeth staining foods like coffee, sodas, junk foods, and cigarettes result in improved oral health.

Relief from Headache

Misaligned teeth may sometimes cause a severe headache. An unnatural bite can lead to a headache and tooth pain. Crooked teeth can exert extreme pressure on the gums and nerves, thereby channeling pain towards your head. Cosmetic dentistry procedures help in fixing the problem using dental appliances to align teeth.

Improved Appetite

Misaligned, cracked, decayed, or missing teeth can make it painful to chew. Eating can again be a pleasurable activity by correcting these problems.

Reduced risk of Gingivitis

Damaged, cracked, or chipped teeth are more prone to decay. Eventually, the decay may lead to serious dental diseases like periodontal disease. Cosmetic dentistry can fix the issues and reduce the risk of gum disease and other oral health problems.

Cosmetic dentistry helps in improving your smile, increasing your happiness, boosting your confidence, and reducing your overall stress level.

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.
