Cosmetic dentistry helps improve your smile and restore your confidence. Gone are the days of metal fillings. Today people opt for more natural-looking, tooth-coloured fillings, veneers, and inlays and onlays. Eagle Point Dental has knowledgeable and skilled dentists who use advanced equipment and techniques, durable and safe dental materials in our cosmetic dental procedures. Located in Nanaimo, our cosmetic dental services include providing porcelain inlays and onlays, veneers and white fillings.
Eagle Point Dental provides durable and natural-looking porcelain inlays, onlays and crowns. They help restore large portions of teeth that are damaged by decay or injury. They are customized to match the colour of your natural teeth.
Porcelain veneers can help mask the stains and chips on your teeth and also correct teeth misalignment. The veneers from Eagle Point Dental are made of very thin material that is designed to slide over your teeth. They are durable and natural-looking and very easy to apply.
Metal fillings are a thing of the past. Tooth-coloured fillings are what people opt for today. They are made of durable resin and can be bonded to your teeth to give you stronger and a more natural-looking result. This type of restoration can be completed in a single appointment.
Appearance Composite dental fillings closely match the natural tooth colour and are ideal for the restoration of your teeth. This is why most people opt for this type of filling.
Versatility Composite resin fillings are durable and help fix a chipped or broken tooth. They also are used to fill teeth cavities. However they have their limitations and cannot be used in large amounts on your teeth. When a larger portion of a tooth needs to be filled, getting a dental crown is suggested.
Safety Composite fillings are safer than amalgam fillings because they do not contain mercury or other metals. At Eagle Point Dental we do not remove serviceable amalgam fillings. However, when a patient requires a filling replacement, we recommend composite fillings.
Less Tooth Sensitivity Composite dental filling is a poor conductor of heat and cold. If your teeth are restored with composite fillings, then you may not experience sensitivity like you might if amalgam fillings are used. You also will not get the taste of metal in your mouth when composite fillings are used, a common thing that people face with amalgam fillings.
Lesser Tooth Structure is removed When using composite fillings, a minimal amount of healthy tooth structure is removed. This helps to preserve the strength of the tooth and reduces the chances of getting an expensive crown in the future, in case the tooth needs to be restored.
Having severely damaged teeth can make it extremely uncomfortable for one to chew and could also make him or her feel uncomfortable at social gatherings. Eagle Point Dental offers a full range of dental restorative treatments. These treatments are a combination of cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures, to help people dealing with damaged or missing teeth. Our treatments include periodontal therapy, endodontic treatments, veneers, bridges, crowns, implants, or other dental work.

Composite fillings contain components that both strengthen the tooth and create a strong shield to keep out decay-causing bacteria.
