Rebuilding & Protecting Your Oral Health

Restoring Smiles in East York

With restorations like dental crowns, bridges and root canals, we can help repair your teeth and give you a strong and healthy smile.

Dental issues that require restorative care go beyond aesthetics. Broken, chipped or missing teeth can affect your oral health by creating an environment where bacteria can build up, leading to gum disease and decay.

By restoring your smile, your dentist can help relieve pain and discomfort. Whether your issue is simple or complex, our team at O'Connor Dental Centre is here to help.
