Absolutely wonderful dental office. If you’re someone like me who is anxious when it comes to visiting the dentist then I highly recommend Dr. Emily Baker. She explained everything in detail and made my visit extremely comfortable (especially during these Covid times). She was great at making sure I felt comfortable during the whole process. I’m glad I found this dental office because I will be going here from now on.

My @dtdentistry hygienist wore a N100 mask, a medical mask, a face shield, eye goggles, and a surgical scrub cap, gown and gloves for my recent dental cleaning. Thank you for giving me super-clean teeth and for keeping me safe from getting #Covid19.

I'm doing the Invisalign with Downtown Dentistry since January 2020. Dr. Chan and her team all are very professional and very kind. Only half year my teeth got a big change from the crowded bottom teeth and protruding upper teeth. I'm so happy about this experience, especially in the pandemic period they continue contacted with us. I would say that thank you Dr. Chan! Thanks each of you in the team for your excellent service ! All the best, Claire

Great experience. Highly professional staff. Dr chan recommended invisalign to straighten my teeth while correcting my bite and thus far, I have achieved perfect results. A few more tweaks, and I will complete this phase of my dental care. With regular hygiene appointments, I will have excellent dental health for the remainder of my life. Thank you so much.

Recently went to get a cleaning done (early June 2020) and I am so glad I went. The staff was absolutely amazing! (As always). Even during the COVID period they were well prepared with proper PPE and made sure all answered questionnaire (and sanitized etc). My hygienist was very patient and did a great job. I highly recommend Downtown Dentistry!

My experience with Downtown Dentistry has been wonderful, especially with Dr. Reddy and his staff. I have always been greeted with respect, dignity and a deep desire to provide the best possible care. I underwent several dental procedures like cleaning, fillings, gum disease treatment and tooth extraction. Dr. Reddy was very encouraging and informative throughout different procedures. He also encouraged me to get a cavity filled without any anesthesia. I would like to pass on the message to anyone reading this, when possible please consider getting cavity filled without needles and numbing. There is no other dentist I would go to or recommend! When you find the best, you keep it!

Overall, an exceptional experience with my Hygienist. Yolanda made me feel warm and welcomed as she had remembered me from past visits. She was also able to relieve my anxiety over the cleaning by creating a meaningful conversation that took my mind off of what was happening. Would definitely recommend for anyone who is looking for a welcoming dentistry office!

Dr. Michelle Fung is the best dentist I've ever had and by far the most attentive. She's kind, encouraging, and I truly felt like my comfort was her priority. I'm a huge wimp when it comes to any kind of dental procedures so I really appreciated her approach. I learn something new about how to take better care of my teeth every time I see her, and she takes her time to answer all of my questions. Her personality actually makes me look forward to visiting the dentist, which I never thought was possible :P

I've been going to Downtown Dentistry for almost 17 years. Dr. Chan, who is my dentist, is to be commended on the highly competent staff employed there. The dental professionals and support staff are first rate. I've never had cause for complaint in all my visits. Currently I am in the process of completing the 'Invisalign' process to straighten my teeth. I have recommended Downtown Dentistry to others owing to their excellent and caring service.

I went for cleaning and check up. Eni was my hygienist who did an amazing job of cleaning my teeth. She took her time and carefully removed any plaque that was left due to braces. Throughout the cleaning she shared very useful advice and hygiene tips on protecting my teeth with braces. I left feeling very happy.

Had been to this clinic after moving to the city. I was skeptical initially, but this clinic is really on par with their reviews and standards. Met Dr. Reddy N.C. and I am very happy with his work. He was so good in diagnosing the issue and explain it in laymen terms. Looking forward for the treatment.

Dr. Fung is changing and raising the standard for all dentists out there. Absolutely goes out of her way to make sure that you’re the most comfortable and remembers all of your preferences and sensitivities. Keeps you informed about what procedure she’s doing and why and if you’re curious or have any question, she’s a book of knowledge. And what’s so rare to find- she’s just a great and fun person and shows it during each visit. She makes greatest atmosphere between her, the patient and whoever is assisting her. Could not be happier to be her patient. Clinic is super clean and friendly too!

I went in because I was trying to find a dentist to transfer my Invisalign case to, since I recently moved. Dr Amelia came off as competent and knowledgeable and she seemed to getting care that I was happy with the end results of my treatment. I'll definitely be considering continuing my treatment with her.

The space was clean & the staff was nice. It’s a big office so they can do anything you need on the premises. I will keep going there from now on!

The most beautiful thing that you can wear without effort is your smile. However, some patients find teeth misalignment a hindrance for them to flash a friendly gesture. Good thing, technology gives a chance to everyone who wants to achieve beautiful teeth and optimal oral health. Ceramic dental braces are one of the modern solutions to crooked teeth. This dental appliance is similar to the traditional metal braces that you’ve already known. 

How do braces help you correct your teeth? 

What are braces for?

Teeth braces are orthodontic appliances that are traditionally made of wires and brackets. These components are what an orthodontist attaches to the patient’s teeth to help the bites move to the correct places. Throughout the treatment, the braces supposedly apply constant pressure to the misaligned teeth. This treatment lasts for at least a year and within the treatment period, the patient revisits their dentist to adjust their braces. The adjustment gradually shifts the placement of the bites. 

After orthodontic treatment, some patients will need retainers. Dental retainers are either made of plastic or wire and are for maintaining the new teeth position.  

Orthodontics aims to fix or prevent the following teeth issues: 

  • Teeth gaps
  • Overcrowding
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Crookedness or misalignment
  • Overbites, underbites, and crossbites

Ceramic dental braces

Tooth braces have been around for more than centuries now and innovation just comes up with better ways to improve its functions. Today, patients no longer have to feel anxious about bulky and glaring brackets and braces wire. There are various types of braces now that are available to suit every patient’s dental needs. 

Ceramic braces look and function similarly to a traditional orthodontic appliance. However, the brackets of ceramic braces are either clear or tooth-coloured making it less visible than the metallic ones.

Aside from this, here are the benefits and drawbacks of ceramic tooth braces you should learn about.

Pros

  • Less visible. 

As mentioned above, ceramic types can either match the colour of the natural tooth or be see-through. These qualities are the reason why most patients prefer this to traditional braces. It gives the patients a discreet way to undergo their treatment until they are able to reveal their beautiful smile.

  • More comfortable.

The metal braces tend to give discomfort because food and debris often get stuck in their wires. Its pressure is also greater and at some times painful to the patient. However, ceramic braces materials are smoother letting food slip by easily. Its treatment doesn’t require much pressure, especially for minor malocclusion cases. More importantly, without worrying about its appearance, patients are comfortable wearing them and continue their daily lives. 

  • Faster treatment period than Invisalign.

Both Invisalign and clear braces are suitable for mild orthodontic cases. However, since braces provide more grip and consistency, it is more reliable than Invisalign. Clear aligners are made of a thermoplastic material that is flexible and gives less pressure. That’s why ceramic braces usually guarantee a faster treatment period than Invisalign.

Cons

  • Expensive.

Most probably because of its advantage in appearance, ceramic braces are more expensive than metal braces. On average, clear braces cost $1000 CAD to $2000 CAD more than the traditional ones. Although orthodontia services are a bit costly, some insurance companies cover costs if the treatment is necessary.  

  • May cause sensitivity.

The ceramic brackets take a larger space on the tooth which can be a challenge in cleaning. If the toothbrush is not able to clean the gumlines thoroughly, there’s a tendency of developing gum issues. When bacteria builds up in the gums, it affects the tooth roots and leads to tooth or gum sensitivity. Make sure that you heed your dentist’s advice on how to care for your teeth with ceramic braces.

  • Less durable.

Ceramic materials are brittle and less durable than metallic materials. In effect, it is vulnerable to foods that are hard and crunchy. Without proper maintenance, it could also chip or break. This is the reason why some patients who use this type frequent their dentists more for upkeep. 

  • More susceptible to stain

The ceramic bracket itself does not easily discolour but the orthodontic elastics that surround it. The best thing to do is to avoid eating food and drinking liquids that have a stain. If it’s not helped, the stain on the elastic ties will remain until it is replaced which can be very unappealing.

Every look is beautiful in their own unique way. Nevertheless, wanting to enhance one’s appearance should not be frowned upon. It is an indication that you love and nurture yourself. Your Toronto dentist will help you attain that transformation by starting with your smile.
