Dental Services & Technology in Oakville

General Dentistry in Oakville

Many dental services are used to deliver preventative care and maintenance that can keep your smile healthy. Our general dentistry tools and procedures allow us to offer insight into what the future holds for your mouth so that we can intervene early and in the most minimal way possible. From your gums and lips to your teeth and their insides, we keep a close eye on your oral health whenever you visit us for an appointment.

Gum Grafting

Gum grafting is a procedure used to restore weak gum tissue that has begun to pull away from the teeth or grow thin due to gum disease. Strong gums are necessary to support both natural teeth and dental implants, which is why it’s important to maintain lifelong gum health. The gums also protect delicate nerve endings in the tooth roots, and without that protection, patients often experience a great deal of pain and loss of certain functions. The dentists at Uptown Dental @ Trafalgar can help curb gum disease before it becomes problematic by providing gum grafting right here in our Oakville dental office.

Dental Sealants

Sealants can be described as tiny plastic fillings that are painless and don’t require preparation, numbing, or anesthetic. We use dental sealant to “fill in” areas of the teeth that are prone to tooth decay to prevent cavities from occurring. This provides a smoother cleaning surface and adds an extra layer of protection over the tooth enamel. For this reason, dental sealant is ideal for young children. The sealant can be applied very quickly in a single appointment but often lasts for up to ten years. Sealant can reduce tooth decay by 70%!

Oral Cancer Screening

When detected early, the rate of survival for oral cancers increases drastically, which is why we perform screenings during every routine oral exam. What is involved in the screening? In most cases, we will perform a visual assessment of the lips, tongue, and inside the mouth for signs of unusual tissue, as well as a gentle feel of the cheeks, jaw, and neck for lumps. If you notice any unusual sores or lumps in your mouth, let your dentist know immediately and book an oral exam to have them checked out.

Digital Dental X-Rays

Dental x-rays are another key component of maintaining your overall oral health. An x-ray image allows us to examine and diagnose the parts of your mouth not visible to the human eye, such as the roots of your teeth and the bone structure of your mouth. We use these images to diagnose and treat any oral health concerns. Our dental office is fully equipped with digital dental x-rays, which use less radiation, take less time from capture to viewing, and can be looked at easily on a computer screen.

Oral Exams & New Patient Exams

Preventative care starts with being attentive to changes in your oral health, lifestyle, or needs. All regular dental visits include thorough oral examinations and routine oral cancer screening. We welcome new patients of all ages, including families, to visit us for regular appointments so that we can keep an eye on your oral health. Even young or nervous patients can feel at ease when they visit Uptown Dental @ Trafalgar for oral exams; we are devoted to providing a caring office environment so you feel valued and relaxed at every visit.

Dental Hygiene Appointments

A professional hygiene appointment provides a deep clean, removing stubborn deposits from your teeth while making your mouth look and feel great. Our experienced dental hygienists provide friendly and gentle care, while also working hard to remove substances that pose risks to your long-term oral health. We recommend booking dental hygiene appointments every six months for most patients, but depending on your oral examination, we may suggest a different frequency for your visits. Some individuals may benefit from more frequent visits to manage gum disease or plaque buildup, which can vary with your mouth’s chemistry and makeup. Learn more >

Root Canals

A root canal is a common procedure that cleans out the infected roots of a tooth while keeping the natural tooth intact. When performed in a timely manner, root canals also help prevent the spread of tooth decay in your mouth and even to other areas of your body. If you experience severe tooth pain or gum pain, be sure to book an appointment to see our dentists as soon as possible; you may be experiencing early signs and symptoms of an infection.

Teeth Extractions

Tooth extraction is typically a routine process that we can offer right here in our Oakville dental office. Tooth extractions may be necessary when the teeth are affected by trauma or disease, orthodontic treatment, or incorrect eruption in the mouth. Our dentists have provided many teeth extractions, often leaving patients surprised about how gentle and comfortable the procedure is and how quickly it can be accomplished. We are always eager to change your perceptions about dentistry! If you have been avoiding a tooth extraction, talk to our experienced team today about how we can make you comfortable.

Cosmetic Dentistry in Oakville

What makes a smile beautiful? It’s a complex answer, but what most people notice most about another person’s smile is tooth colour, shape, and alignment. If you are unhappy with your smile, you can talk to us about your options for teeth whitening, tooth restoration, or alignment procedures. Everyone deserves to love their smile, and we are here to help make that happen!

Dental Crowns

A crown is a type of dental restoration that completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are created outside the mouth and applied to the prepared natural tooth. As a result, the structure of the tooth roots is kept intact to provide a secure foundation for the crown. Crowns can be used in many ways; we use dental crowns to restore damaged teeth, strengthen weaker teeth, improve the look, colour, and shape of teeth, and support other restorations like dental bridges. If you have specific flaws in your smile that you would like to correct, talk to our team of dental professionals about custom dental crowns. Learn more >

In-Office & Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Uptown Dental @ Trafalgar offers both in-office and take-home teeth whitening options for patients looking to brighter their smiles quickly and effectively. In-office teeth whitening is a safe and quick hour-long procedure delivered by our friendly dental hygienists. Take-home teeth whitening kits are used for several weeks of treatments and include custom-fitted teeth trays and whitening gel that you apply yourself. Both options will help you get that beautiful white smile you desire and deserve!


Veneers are a wafer-thin layer of super-strong porcelain that convincingly substitutes your natural tooth enamel but with the added benefit of being resistant to staining. Veneers are applied over the outward-facing sides of the front teeth to instantly give your smile a lift. Our experienced dentists can achieve many goals with this single cosmetic dental restoration, whether applied to one or two teeth or all of your immediately visible teeth. If you’d like to improve tooth colour, size and shape, or alignment and spacing, ask us if veneers are right for you.

Restorative Dentistry in Oakville

Broken, damaged, or missing teeth can have a significant impact on both your physical and emotional health. At Uptown Dental @ Trafalgar, we offer several treatment options for patients whose smiles are incomplete. Our most common treatment options include dental implants, bridges, crowns, and dentures. Whichever treatment path you choose, we will repair your teeth and fully restore your smile, abilities, and confidence!

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is the use of “composite resins” (made of a mixture of plastic and glass) to replace missing tooth structure or to hide minor defects, including chips, discolouration, and minor spacing irregularities. The composite material bonds directly with the tooth and comes in a variety of shades to blend in naturally with the surrounding teeth. This solution is ideal for teens whose teeth are still maturing, and it can be an affordable option when light dental repair work is necessary.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a long-lasting, versatile method to both replace missing teeth and preserve your jawbone structure, which normally decays when a tooth is removed or lost. This is a minor, routine procedure that requires local anesthesia. We have created dental implants to replace one tooth and multiple teeth, making it a great solution for any level of tooth loss. If you are looking for a permanent, comfortable solution to replace your missing teeth, ask us about dental implants today! We can provide a full assessment to see if you are a candidate, or if you require other treatments to build up your gum and bone structure before an implant procedure.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are another top choice for treating tooth loss. The custom-made dental bridge consists of one or more artificial teeth bonded together. These are then anchored on two natural teeth or two dental crowns surrounding the gap. This offers a seamless solution, both in functionality and appearance. It’s also an effective, durable, and affordable option for early or minimal tooth loss. We can place dental bridges in as little as two appointments, and your custom-created bridge will be manufactured to fit your mouth perfectly.

Composite Dental Fillings

When you have a chipped, cracked, worn, or decaying tooth, the most common and least-aggressive treatment option is to restore the tooth with a filling. Our dentists use fillings to repair and strengthen the natural teeth. We provide composite fillings because composite material is both durable and attractive, mimicking the look of a natural tooth. Dental fillings are the most common procedure we perform at Uptown Dental @ Trafalgar, so you can rest assured that you are in good hands from start to finish, whether you require one filling or several.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are two types of partial tooth restoration methods for damaged or weakened teeth. Inlays cover the pits and fissures of the tooth (the primary chewing surface between the cusps or ridges of the molars). Onlays cover the same area inlays do, but they extend over one or more cusps of the tooth as well, providing a larger restorative surface. Both types of restorations are designed in a dental lab to perfectly fit your teeth and provide a solid chewing surface. Once manufactured, our experienced dentists can prepare your tooth, fit the restoration, and secure it in place using safe and durable dental materials.


Dentures are a reliable and time-tested method for treating full or partial tooth loss. They are also more comfortable, durable, and easy to clean than ever before. We can provide customized dentures in various types, including full or partial dentures. Our role is to help you find the right solution for your needs so that you can enjoy activities like eating, speaking, and smiling. Once your dentures have been created, our team of dental professionals will help you test them for fit and make adjustments whenever necessary to ensure they stay in place and feel great every day.

Sedation Dentistry in Oakville

Visiting the dentist can be a highly stressful experience for some patients. At Uptown Dental @ Trafalgar, we are experienced professionals trained in safely administering “conscious sedation.” Sedation that we provide leaves patients awake but relaxed so that they can feel at ease in our office when undergoing procedures. Sedation dentistry is often a good option for nervous children, individuals with special needs or anxiety disorders, or individuals who have had a negative experience at a dental office in the past. Contact us directly for more information about sedation options.

IV Sedation Dentistry

IV sedation dentistry allows the patient to remain conscious but mostly unaware of the procedure. If you have high anxiety about dental visits or are an individual with special needs, this is a good option to help you relax. It’s important to note that the effects of IV sedation take some time to wear off, so you’ll need to make transportation arrangements in advance of your appointment.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry

Nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing” gas, is a fast-acting gas that helps you relax and aids in pain relief when used alongside local anesthetics. You won’t remember the procedure afterward and you’ll return to alertness soon after. Nitrous oxide is also a safe and good option for kids because it’s delivered through a simple and non-invasive nasal mask.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is delivered via a pill taken in advance of your appointment. Patients will begin to feel the effects in time for a visit to our offices. Like IV sedation, oral sedation takes more time to wear off, so be sure to arrange a ride home from our office. We will provide you with more information and directions on how and when to take the pills in advance of your scheduled appointment.

Dental Guards & Dental Appliances in Oakville

If you’ve ever purchased over-the-counter dental guards, you’ve probably complained about discomfort or found yourself removing them when you should be using them. A “one-size-fits-all” approach is difficult because mouths are so different in size and shape. What many patients end up seeking out from us are dental appliances that are customized to their unique mouth shapes. At Uptown Dental @ Trafalgar, we offer custom-fitted night guards and retainers to fit both your teeth and your lifestyle.

Dental guards and dental appliances

Night Guards

Nighttime teeth grinding is a common cause of headaches, jaw pain, and toothaches. It also causes wear on your teeth. Let us help you prevent pain and tooth damage with a custom-fitted night guard that provides a snug and comfortable fit over your teeth. Our guards are much thinner than over-the-counter guards, ensuring that you can sleep well and leave your mouth guard in throughout the night.


If you’ve spent time and money on orthodontic treatments to straighten your teeth, the last thing you want is for all that work to come undone. Retainers are devices that maintain tooth position so you can keep your beautiful new smile for years to come. We provide durable and comfortable retainers that can be easily removed and cleaned, ensuring that you spend less time thinking about your mouth and more time enjoying your everyday activities.

Dental specialties

Dental Specialties

At Uptown Dental @ Trafalgar, we offer a number of in-house dental treatments and solutions to provide care for you and your entire family. However, if you require advanced dental procedures or specialized care, we can provide you with a referral to qualified dentists that specialize in one of Canada’s nine recognized dental specialties.


Endodontics is a specialized area of dentistry focused on diagnosing and treating the soft dental pulp and the roots inside the tooth. The most common procedure in this specialty is a root canal, which cleans out infected roots of the teeth. You may receive a referral to an endodontist if you have recurring tooth infections or if you have complex needs for your root canal procedure.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Dentists who specialize in oral and maxillofacial surgery treat a wide variety of conditions, injuries, and diseases in the soft and hard mouth tissues. They perform procedures on such cases as cleft lip, cleft palate surgery, cosmetic facial surgery, and reconstructive jaw surgery. In cases where we believe you may benefit from more advanced surgical treatment, our dentists will provide you with a referral to an experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon.


Prosthodontics is a specialized field of restoration that uses dental prosthetics to restore the look, comfort, and function of the mouth. These techniques also improve the overall health and wellbeing of the patient by giving them back their confidence and their ability to perform normal activities. Prosthodontists also work on complex procedures for teeth and mouth restorations.

Our Practice’s Dental Technology

Technology is constantly evolving and improving, and the same is true in the field of dentistry. At Uptown Dental @ Trafalgar, we are proud to be a digital practice with a plan to continually invest in new equipment, machinery, and software. We use current dental technologies to ensure you and your family receive convenient and high-quality dental care at every visit.

Dental technology

iTero Scanner

The iTero scanner is a lightweight, wand-like device with a camera at the tip that allows us to easily examine your teeth while showing you what we see on-screen. It’s a quick, painless, and even fun part of your exam. We use an iTero digital scanner to create a 3D map of the mouth for our patients so that we can provide better patient education, plan for upcoming treatments, and spot issues we can’t always see with our other tools.

Dental Laser

Using dental lasers is an efficient, cost-effective, and comfortable method to treat patients with hypersensitivity, tooth decay, gum disease, or teeth whitening. Dental lasers have many uses; they can be used to treat teeth, gums, and dental restoration. Contact us to learn more about how we use dental lasers in our practice and all of the benefits that come with this technology.
