Are you dissatisfied at how the silver mercury fillings look in your teeth? Did you know that these older fillings can also be a health concern – or even lead to tooth loss over time? Extensive research has been conducted regarding the effects that these fillings can have on your health, and over time, they have been known to leak and allow new cavities to form underneath them. This causes damage to the structure of your existing teeth and can cause them to crack to the point where a root canal and crown will be needed to correct the issue. These amalgam fillings can also permanently stain the gums.
At our practice in Maple, we only offer the highest quality metal-free fillings such as white plastic, porcelain veneers, bridges and crowns. These materials enable our dentists to transform your smile with only the most natural-looking products. By being able to bond these safe products to your teeth, our dentists can provide you with the healthiest smile possible whether you are visiting relatives in Richmond Hill, chatting with coworkers at your Vaughan office, or entertaining in your Woodbridge home.
Although either of these materials can be used, porcelain is usually the recommended choice because it is a far stronger product that is able to provide additional strength to the remaining tooth structure. Plastic works well for small fillings, but when used for larger projects, it may need to be replaced sooner rather than later because it may not be as durable. Over time though, the tooth will eventually require a porcelain restoration to be done.
Porcelain is by far stronger, more durable and longer-lasting. As with all dental procedures though, regular check-ups and proper in-home oral hygiene will help ensure that your new restorations last as long as possible.
Amazing background music for a cleaning. Super soothing and relaxing experience in something I usually find unpleasant. The staff is also friendly, kind and caring. Especially Stephanie, who is an absolute gem and lovely to talk to. Highly recommend.
I was very satisfied with my experience at Mapleridge Dental. The staff were friendly, thorough in the care they provided, and attentive to all my needs. First-class service!
Recently changed dentistries to be closer to home and found Mapleridge. This has honestly been the best decision I have made for my dental care. The doctors and staff are absolutely amazing: very welcoming, friendly and helpful! They have also made every visit very comforting, which was possibly the biggest concern of mine when looking for a new dental office. Any questions, concerns or fears you may have, Mapleridge will help you every step of the way!
Great experience! Everyone at the clinic was very kind, welcoming, and competent. This was my first visit and I felt very comfortable with all aspects of my appointment; from the booking process, cleaning, and dental exam. I believe communication and honest professional advice are important when choosing a dentist, I feel I got this here... thank you to the entire team.
Mapleridge Dentistry - what a nice surprise! Everyone so friendly, attentive. Modern facility. Dr. Ko took me on an emergency basis and explained my options, after listening patiently to all my concerns.Thank you for making my first experience a welcoming one and I look forward to my next appointment.
Mapleridge has the best team out there- their staff is kind and helpful, and treats you like family. You are actually happy to go to your dentist instead of being scared. Stephanie is such a wonderful dental hygienist and such a lovely person. And Dr. Ko is just incredible- my whole family sees them and we couldn't be happier!
Fantastic experience! I have been to several dentists in the past and I always felt like it was an in and out experience, or they would not explain anything. At Mapleridge they are extremely professional, knowledgeable and explain everything in a lot of detail. I like that I’m able to be aware of what is going on with my teeth. I love the hygienist, dentist and the reception is super friendly. I highly recommend!
My experience at Mapleridge was nothing short of spectacular. They are professional, kind and informative and they explain everything they’re going to do and their reasons for their procedures. I definitely made the right choice in choosing them!
Great staff. The team at the front was courteous, friendly and extremely helpful. I had Dr. Ko as my dentist. Its the 2nd time I've seen him and he was great - he explained everything, walked me through some options, and explained next steps. I'll definitely continue going to Mapleridge dentistry and I'd recommend them to others in Vaughan.
Very clean, friendly clinic. I was very impressed by the dental hygienist Shirine, who took time to explain everything and provide practical suggestions. Dr. Yara was also very professional and gentle. Thorough exam and happy patient! Will be back!
