Tooth Coloured Filings

Do you have any old metal (amalgam) fillings? When Amalgam fillings wear out, they can leak and let harmful bacteria into your tooth where they can start a new cavity. Tooth colored fillings can restore your teeth’s natural appearance, and last a long time. These restorations are the only type of restorations done at Chinook Dental Centre.

Porcelain Veneers

If you are unhappy with your smile because of spaces or crooked teeth, a “smile design” may be just what your are looking for. Our team will use porcelain veneers and crowns to improve your original smile. When done properly, porcelain veneers are strong and durable. If you are unhappy with your smile, porcelain veneers may be your answer. To read some case studies and view some of the restorations we have done for our patients click here.

If your teeth are “worn-out” or you suffer from extensive cavities, then bonded porcelain crowns can improve your teeth. Pure ceramic crowns contain no metal so you will not have a black line at the gum line even if your gums recede. Once bonded, the crowns are very strong and seal your teeth very well. This means that the crowns are very durable and comfortable. If your teeth are all worn, you can turn back the clock with bonded porcelain crowns. To read some case studies and view some of the mouths we have restored for our patients click here.

In the past, if your tooth needed a small or medium sized filling, your only option was an amalgam filling. With Composite Resin filling materials and bonding agents, you don’t have to get another metal filling. Composite resin has several advantages including the ability to bond to tooth structure, a co-efficient of thermal expansion similar to tooth structure, and a tooth like colour. If you have the need for small to medium fillings, composite resin fillings are the only fillings done at Chinook Dental Centre.
