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

Oakville, ON dentist, offers beautiful dental crowns


Dental Crowns at Sherwood Dental in Oakville Area

Our teeth are strong, but they can still be significantly damaged and can have problems if they are not cared for properly. With the help of the right dentist, however, your teeth can last your lifetime and be repaired if damaged. Dental crowns are a fantastic way to repair damaged teeth, and for those in Oakville looking for dental crowns, the Sherwood Dental team can help. Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel offer restorative solutions, including quality dental crowns.

When might you need a dental crown?

When a tooth becomes severely damaged due to decay, cracks, or chips, it cannot function as it should. Additionally, severe tooth decay can lead to an infection that causes pain and discomfort. Therefore, whenever a tooth is damaged beyond the point when a filling or composite resin can assist, the dentist may recommend dental crown placement. A crown acts as a "cap" to the exposed area of the tooth above the gum line. It is made of porcelain and bonded over the tooth structure. It provides protection and aesthetic appearance, as the crown's colour, shape, and size are designed to match the patient's natural teeth for seamless integration. Dental crowns are an excellent solution for many of our patients.

What is the process of obtaining a dental crown?

  • Consultation. First, patients will have an evaluation with Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel to determine if they are an appropriate candidate.
  • Preparation. Second, preparation is done, where the dentist will remove enamel to make room for the crown.
  • Impressions. Moulds of the tooth are made and used by a dental ceramist to fabricate the crown based on the dentist's instructions.
  • Temporary. A temporary crown is put in place until the permanent restoration is completed.
  • Bonding. After approximately one week, the patient will return to the dental office to remove the temporary crown and place the new crown from the ceramist.
  • Care. Patients will learn how to care for their dental crown and keep it for many years to come!
We are here to help you get the perfect smile.

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.
