A Wide Range of Fillings to Repair Your Smile
At North Burnaby Dental Group, our dentists repair chipped, fractured, or decayed teeth with white composite fillings, inlays and onlays.
Composite resin fillings are used to restore decayed parts of a tooth or to make cosmetic improvements to your smile by changing a tooth's shape or colour. Your dentist can custom-blend the colour of each filling to match it to the colour of your existing teeth for a natural look.
Larger than regular fillings, inlays are restorations that fill the space between rounded edges, or cusps, at the centre of the tooth's surface. Aesthetic inlays can be made from composite resin or porcelain. You may opt to replace silver fillings with aesthetic inlays to restore the appearance of your smile.
One or more cusps on a damaged tooth may be covered with onlays. Onlays may be a helpful solution for cases where a dental crown would be excessive. With proper care, dental onlays can last for decades. They are often more durable and longer-lasting than regular fillings.
