August 2012: Tips, eNews and More!
Congratulations team Canada!
Our Canadian athletes gave their best efforts at the 2012 Olympic games in London. We finished a strong 13th place in the medal standings! We cheered our hearts out along with Canadian fans, friends and family from across the country who showed how awesome it is to be Canadian! A thank you goes out to our athletes who represented our country, Canada, so well!

The recent rain seems to have given us a break from the humidity as well as some well deserved water for our lawns and gardens. This has been a great summer so far with a fairly consistent forecast of "HOT and patio weather"!

Now is a great time to start looking for an indoor activity before the colder month's return. To maintain momentum we suggest looking into a league activity. After watching our Olympic athletes compete in their respective sports, why not give it a try yourself?

Are you headed off to school next month?
Many post secondary institutions offer health plans that include dental coverage. If you are enrolled in a post secondary program, remember to look into the coverage offered to you. Your new school schedule may keep you busy, remember to make your oral health a priority.

Have a great month,

Dr. Jordan Benedict and Team

Dr. Benedict is thrilled to offer Sedation Dentistry. Sedation Dentistry allows us to care for your oral health needs, while you are relaxed, under supervised sedation. Sedation Dentistry can be used for patients with dental anxiety or other conditions.

The Spa Dent teeth whitening system is now available at Dr. Jordan Benedict's Port Hope Dental Office. With this in-office whitening system, teeth may whiten 2 - 8 shades in as little as 30 minutes. Spa Dent whitening uses a cool blue and red LED light that activates the product, whitening your teeth deeper and faster for longer lasting results. There is virtually no sensitivity.

We recommend that you get your teeth cleaned before getting the whitening done for best results. Click here!

How Would You Rate Your Smile?

Is it a perfect TEN! A seven, or perhaps even lower?
Does your smile make you look younger, sexier, and smarter? It can.

When you look at pictures do you ever wish your teeth were straighter, whiter, more aligned? Cosmetic dentistry allows dentists to perform porcelain veneer 'smile makeovers' which can address all of these issues. We are delighted to be able to offer this revolutionary technique to our patients.

What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are custom, porcelain facings that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth to cover any imperfections and fix your smile. The veneers are very thin, only about 1 mm thick. That same thickness is "smoothed" off the natural tooth surface so when the veneer is bonded to the tooth, the tooth feels and looks the same thickness as before. Uneven, discoloured, or even damaged teeth can be restored or repaired using this procedure.
