At Image Smiles in Vancouver, our dentists offer restorative dental procedures such as fillings, crowns and root canals to repair the function and structure of a tooth.
Fillings, Inlays & Onlays
At Image Smiles, we use tooth-coloured composite fillings to directly repair a cavity or tooth damage, like a crack.
Inlays and onlays are indirect fillings that are made outside of the mouth and then used to fill a cavity, generally on a molar or premolar.
Because composite fillings are white, they can be closely matched to the colour of your existing teeth.
A dental crown is hollow, artificial tooth that is placed over an entire damaged tooth to restore and protect it.
Your dentist may also recommend a dental crown for aesthetic reasons, like to cover a crooked or discoloured tooth, or to cover a tooth after a root canal.
Generally made from materials like porcelain or composite, dental crowns look and function just like natural teeth.
A root canal is a dental procedure where your dentist removes a damaged tooth root from the inside of a tooth.
Once the tooth root is removed, your dentist fills the space with a filling, or covers it with a crown to help restore the tooth's function.
A root canal helps to relieve any pain or symptoms caused by the damage and prevents the need for an extraction.
