Fight Aging With a Healthy Smile

Fight Aging With a Healthy Smile

Did you know that people often underestimate someone’s age when they are smiling? While a smiling face can seem more attractive and youthful, one filled with damaged or yellowed teeth can actually make someone look older. Luckily, turning back the years can be as simple as visiting the dentist.

With age, teeth can get worn down and can crack or chip. Also, the colour of your teeth can change over time. This happens from a combination of natural thinning tooth enamel and the cumulative effects of foods/drinks staining your teeth.

If you don’t want your teeth to show their age, there are two ways that you can give yourself a brighter, more youthful smile.

  1. Teeth Whitening, such as in-office or take-home tooth whitening, can whiten your teeth and brighten your smile.
  2. Cosmetic treatments, such as dental crowns and bonding, can also provide impressive results

Before undertaking any kind of cosmetic treatment, your teeth and gums need to be healthy. Regular dental appointments and daily brushing and flossing are essential to maintaining a healthy mouth.

If you are unhappy with your smile, contact your dentist today to find out how easy it is to bring back a healthy, youthful glow. We’re here to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy now, and into your twilight years.

Start The New Year with a Bright, White Smile

Start The New Year with a Bright, White Smile

With the holiday season in full swing, there are parties, celebrations and many reasons to smile. From time with family and friends, you can’t help but enjoy this special time of year.

As you smile your way through the holiday season, we want to make sure that you have a smile you can be proud of. If you wish you had a brighter or whiter smile. We can help!

Tooth Whitening

If your teeth are stained or discoloured, we can help brighten your smile. We offer two smile whitening options: take home teeth whitening and in-office teeth whitening.  Both processes can give you a whiter, brighter smile.

Take Home Teeth Whitening

You can whiten your teeth at home during the day or at night. In both instances, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth to create custom bleaching trays. The whitening gel is placed in the tray before use.  It can take 5 to 14 days to see maximum results, wearing the trays for 15 to 30 minutes during the day or a minimum of 4 to 6 hours over night.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Our in-office bleaching process lightens discolouration and tooth enamel. The procedure is simple. Your hygienist will cover your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed. A whitening gel will then be placed on your teeth and a light will be used to activate the gel removing any stains and discolouration.  After your one to two hour appointment, your teeth will be brighter and whiter.


Veneers can give you the smile you always wanted. With thin layers of porcelain material, veneers are individually crafted and applied to the front of your tooth’s surface. Veneers offer precise colour-matching and natural enamel-like quality and they can improve the appearance of your teeth. You’ve probably admired other people’s teeth without even realizing that they were veneers.

If you are interested in tooth whitening, we offer a Free Whitening for Life Program. If you have any questions about tooth whitening, veneers, or cosmetic dentistry, please contact our office at (514) 364-3366 or click here, to visit our website. Also, be sure to visit our Facebook page to keep up with information that affects your dental health and wellness.

2016 New Year’s Resolution

2016 New Year's Resolution

With a new year comes resolutions. You may have already decided to learn a new language, travel more, or spend more time with family. These are all good resolutions, but we have a few other ideas.

Floss Daily

Flossing helps prevent gum disease and helps keep the rest of your body healthy. If you have trouble flossing, that’s not an excuse. Try a dental flossing aid and feel free to ask anyone at the Centre Dentaire Lasalle how to use it.

Change Your Toothbrush

A toothbrush is not something you want to hold on to. You should replace your brush every three months, or earlier if the bristles appear worn.

Stop Smoking

Smoking can lead to a variety of illnesses including cancer, heart disease, and emphysema. It can also increase your risk of gum disease, stain your teeth, and lead to foul smelling breath.  This is the perfect year to quit smoking.

Wear a Sports Guard

Sports guards can protect your teeth from chipping, breaking, and even dislodging. They can also protect your jaw joints from trauma, a crucial component of concussion prevention.  Wear a custom mouth guard during any activity where you can get a blow to the face or mouth.

Don’t Use Your Teeth as Tools

This year, avoid using your teeth to open bottles, packages, or anything else.  Over time, these actions can cause your teeth to weaken, chip, and even break.

Whiten Your Smile

A brighter, whiter smile can make you feel more confident and more attractive to others.  Show off a beautiful smile to the world. You’re worth it.

Eat Plenty of Fruits and Vegetables

Fruits and vegetables are not only good for your overall health, they are also good for your oral health. Crisp fruits and raw vegetables, like celery and carrots, can clean plaque from your teeth and even freshen your breath.

Wear Your Seat Belt

Not only do seat belts save lives, they also protect your mouth from minor accidents, such as chipped, broken, and even dislodged teeth.  Buckle up – save your life and your smile.

Visit the Dentist Regularly

Make your dental health a priority this year. Visit your dentist regular, every six months. Your mouth will reward you.

If you have any questions or concerns about any of these dental resolutions or one of your own, please do not hesitate to contact us.
