Dental Restorations

At Image Smiles, our dentists offer restorative dental procedures such as fillings, crowns and root canals to repair the function and structure of a tooth. 

What is a Dental Restoration?

A dental restoration is any procedure your dentist performs to fix a damaged tooth or teeth. Depending on your issue, your dentist can determine which restorative procedure will suit your needs.

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.

Dental Crowns

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.

Root Canals

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.
