Dr. Gill is a thorough dentist who is passionate about helping patients reach their aesthetic and restorative goals. With years of providing compassionate care, Dr. Gill has strived to be an honest and open communicator with her patients.
Our team at Ivory Dental Studio employs the WIDIOM rule which stands for “Would I Do It On Me?” This holds us accountable for taking a conservative approach to dental procedures and placing our patient's needs first.
You will receive a customized cosmetic treatment plan from Dr. Gill after discussing your cosmetic goals and concerns about the appearance of your smile. She will provide you with a variety of treatment options and help you figure out which is best suited for you based on your individual needs, budget, and schedule. If you want to transform your smile, give us a call at (289) 296-0720 to schedule a consultation.
To begin the consultation, Dr. Gill will perform a comprehensive oral exam to assess your oral health, the damage to your teeth, and the best way to restore your smile and your oral health. There are lots of treatments available, and the right one depends on your own unique situation.
Then, you’ll get a personalized treatment plan. Dr. Gill and our dental team will schedule you for your necessary follow-ups, and you’ll get the treatment you need to restore your smile. In some cases, we may be able to start your treatment on the same day, such as in the case of a dental emergency.
Whether you have a special event coming up or you’re tired of feeling insecure about your teeth, transform your smile with teeth whitening! Whitening treatments will remove intrinsic and extrinsic stains to reduce discoloration and create a radiating, white smile.
Did you know you can whiten your teeth from the comfort of your own home? All we need you to do is come in for a short appointment to take impressions of your teeth to create personalized whitening trays for you to take home along with your whitening gel and written instructions on how to use them.
Take-home whitening works in the same way as in-office whitening and can even achieve just as effective results, just over a slower period. Because the concentration of peroxide is lower, you will need to wear your whitening trays each day for about 2 weeks to produce similar results.
A whitening treatment performed in-office by the Niagara Falls dentist is irreplaceable in terms of drastic whitening transformations. The concentration of peroxide is the highest you can have applied to your teeth safely.
This is the best way to lighten the teeth up to 10 shades in a single appointment – perfect for an upcoming wedding or formal photos. We apply the whitening agent directly to your teeth after protecting your gums with a protective gel. The whitening agent is activated with UV light.
Fill chips and cracks, close gaps, cover up misaligned teeth, mask tooth discoloration, or change the size and shape of your teeth altogether with dental bonding. Tooth bonding is the process of repairing or altering the structure of the teeth by bonding composite resin to the teeth.
This is used to cover up aesthetic imperfections and improve the appearance of the teeth. However, it can also repair minor damage to the teeth from dental trauma, teeth grinding, or enamel erosion.
Veneers are porcelain caps bonded to the front-facing surface of the six front teeth to correct cosmetic problems like tooth discoloration, gaps, chipped teeth, and teeth that are too short, round, or small. They can even cover up slightly crooked or asymmetrical teeth.
Because of the thickness of veneers, we need to remove .5 mm of tooth enamel to prevent them from sticking out. This makes veneers a permanent procedure. However, they drastically improve the appearance of your smile and can boost your confidence. Once the veneers are bonded to your teeth, they strengthen them.
Lumineers are like ultra-thin veneers. They are also made of porcelain and serve the same purpose as veneers but the thinness of the material enables us to bond them to your teeth without removing any tooth enamel.
While lumineers are not always as effective at covering up certain cosmetic issues like severe discoloration, they are reversible. If you decide you no longer want lumineers later in life, you can have them removed without any change to your natural teeth.
Need an entire smile transformation? A cosmetic makeover may be just what you’re looking for. A cosmetic dental makeover is a fully personalized treatment plan for patients with multiple concerns with their smiles.
Maybe you have some chips and cracks you want to correct in your teeth but you also have discoloration – we can combine multiple cosmetic treatments to produce the best result. Some patients want to replace missing teeth while correcting orthodontic issues.
Whatever goals you have for your teeth, we can discuss during your consultation and can develop a treatment plan that is fully tailored to your needs and budget.
Cosmetic dentistry can fix a lot of aesthetic problems, including discoloration, chips or cracks, eroded enamel, misaligned teeth, gaps, and teeth that are too small, too sharp, or awkwardly shaped. Best of all, however, cosmetic dentistry can fix a patient’s insecurities with their smile.
This leaves them with a boost of confidence and an eagerness to put themselves out there. Don’t let your smile insecurities hold you back. We can help you address them with minimally invasive cosmetic treatment. Cosmetic treatment also offers restorative benefits like repairing damaged or eroded enamel, strengthening the teeth, and replacing missing teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry isn’t just an investment in your teeth, it’s an investment in your well-being. Patients experience a greater quality of life when they feel good in their skin. When people have severe discoloration, damaged teeth, or misalignment, it can cause them to avoid social gatherings, take photos, and explore new opportunities.
Patients with an aesthetic white smile are perceived as being healthier, kinder, and more competent. This can help patients land job interviews, meet more people, and put themselves out there more often.
It is just as important to feel good in your smile as it is to have healthy and functioning teeth. Studies show that patients who invest in their smiles are more likely to practice good oral hygiene.
Cosmetic dentistry is generally not covered by dental insurance because insurance companies consider cosmetic treatments elective procedures. Insurance will cover a portion of preventative and restorative procedures that are medically necessary to maintain the health and structure of your natural teeth.
However, sometimes cosmetic and restorative dentistry overlaps. Dental bonding, for example, may be necessary to repair a chipped tooth that could otherwise break without it. Even though it is improving the appearance of your smile, it is also serving a medical purpose. Contact your insurance provider to find out what their policy is on covering cosmetic dentistry.
