Comprehensive Guide to Tooth Replacement in Oakville and Surrounding Areas
At Bhandari Dental, we understand how important a complete and healthy smile is to your overall confidence and well-being. Serving the communities of Oakville, Burlington, Milton, Waterdown, and Mississauga, Ontario, our office is dedicated to providing top-notch tooth replacement options tailored to meet your individual needs.

Why Tooth Replacement is Important
Losing a tooth can have significant impacts on your oral health, including misalignment of surrounding teeth, bone loss in the jaw, and difficulty in chewing and speaking. Tooth replacement is not just about aesthetics; it’s crucial for maintaining your facial structure and oral functionality. At our Oakville office, we offer a variety of solutions to help restore your smile and improve your quality of life.

Common Tooth Replacement Options

Dental Implants - Dental implants are one of the most popular and permanent tooth replacement options available. They involve surgically placing a titanium post into the jawbone, which acts as a replacement root. Once the implant integrates with the bone, a crown is attached to provide a natural-looking and durable solution. Residents of Oakville, Burlington, and Milton frequently choose dental implants for their longevity and realistic appearance.


Dental Bridges
For those seeking an effective alternative to implants, dental bridges might be the ideal solution. A dental bridge consists of a false tooth (pontic) held in place by crowns on the adjacent teeth. This option is less invasive than implants and provides a stable, functional, and aesthetically pleasing result. Our patients from Waterdown and Mississauga appreciate the quick turnaround and reliability of dental bridges.

Dentures are removable appliances that can replace multiple missing teeth. Whether you need partial or full dentures, our Oakville office offers modern dentures that are more comfortable and natural-looking than ever before. This cost-effective option is suitable for those who have lost several teeth and need a comprehensive replacement solution. Our clients from all over the service areas, including Burlington and Milton, have found great satisfaction with our advanced denture solutions.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Tooth Replacement Option

Cost of Tooth Replacement - The cost of tooth replacement varies depending on the procedure chosen. Dental implants, while more expensive, offer a long-term solution that often lasts a lifetime with proper care. Dental bridges and dentures are more affordable but may require periodic replacement or adjustments. At Bhandari Dental, we provide a detailed cost breakdown during your consultation, helping residents of Oakville, Mississauga, and beyond make an informed decision.

Durability and Maintenance - Dental implants are renowned for their durability and longevity. With proper oral hygiene, implants can last a lifetime. Bridges and dentures, on the other hand, may need replacements or adjustments over time. It's important to consider the maintenance requirements of each option. Our Oakville team will guide you through the long-term care necessary to keep your replacement teeth in optimal condition.

Aesthetic Appeal - The appearance of your tooth replacement is a significant factor for many patients. Dental implants and high-quality bridges offer a natural look that blends seamlessly with your existing teeth. Modern dentures have also significantly improved in appearance, providing a realistic and attractive solution. Our office in Oakville takes pride in delivering aesthetically pleasing results that boost your confidence.


The Tooth Replacement Procedure

Dental Implants Procedure - The dental implant process involves several stages: initial consultation, implant placement, healing period (osseointegration), abutment placement, and crown attachment. The entire process can take several months but results in a stable and long-lasting tooth replacement. Patients from Burlington and Milton appreciate the thoroughness and precision of our implant procedures.

Dental Bridges Procedure - Getting a dental bridge typically requires two visits. During the first visit, we prepare the adjacent teeth and take impressions. The bridge is then fabricated in a dental lab and fitted during the second visit. This procedure is popular among Waterdown and Mississauga residents for its efficiency and effectiveness.

Dentures Procedure - The process of getting dentures involves taking impressions, creating a wax model for fitting, and then fabricating the final dentures. Several adjustments may be needed to ensure a comfortable fit. Our patients from Oakville and surrounding areas benefit from our meticulous attention to detail, ensuring their dentures fit perfectly and look natural.

Recovery and Aftercare

Post-Procedure Care - After any tooth replacement procedure, proper aftercare is crucial for healing and maintaining oral health. We provide detailed aftercare instructions to our patients in Oakville and beyond, ensuring a smooth recovery and long-term success of your replacement teeth.

Long-Term Maintenance - Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices are essential for the longevity of your tooth replacement. Brush and floss daily, and avoid habits that could damage your replacement teeth. At Bhandari Dental, we offer comprehensive follow-up care to our patients from Oakville, Burlington, Milton, Waterdown, and Mississauga, ensuring your smile remains healthy and beautiful.

Choosing the right tooth replacement option is a personal decision that depends on your individual needs, budget, and preferences.

Over the counter products, take home whitening kits or in-office whitening are the 3 types of whitening. In-office whitening will provide the longest lasting result and greater depth (6 - 9 shades whiter). We use Opalesence Extra Boost exclusively in our office.


Bonding is used when a tooth has been chipped, damaged, misaligned or stained/ discoloured. A composite material is applied and molded to fit the form of the tooth. A
"bonding light" then dries and sets the material. Once this has been completed, we polish and smooth the material.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers provide the same function as bond­ing however they typically last longer. They are used for chipped, damaged, misaligned or discoloured teeth. The veneers are made of a very thin shell of porce­lain that is bonded to the front of the teeth. Once applied it becomes very hard and durable. They resist stains and look very natural. This is a short pro­cedure usually requiring only two appointments.


Bleaching is a very effective treatment for stained or discoloured teeth. A per­oxide solution is applied, stimulated by heat or heat combined with light. Once the solution has been rinsed the teeth have been lightened. This procedure generally needs to be touched up each year. 

Gum Tissue Contouring

Gum tissue contouring, also known as gum reshaping or gum sculpting, is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves shaping and restructuring the gum line to enhance the aesthetics of the smile. This procedure is commonly performed to address issues such as a gummy smile (excessive gum display) or an uneven gum line. 

White Fillings

Tooth-colored white fillings, also known as composite resin fillings, offer several advantages compared to traditional amalgam (silver/grey/mercury) fillings, as they are made to match the natural appearance and color of your teeth, providing a more aesthetically pleasing result, especially for visible teeth.
