One of the earliest techniques used to create more beautiful smiles, bonding involves molding and sculpting layers of tooth-coloured resin on to the surface of the teeth. This can usually be completed in one appointment. Since resin is only moderately durable this technique is reserved today for limited situations such as chipped teeth, closing gaps and single teeth when either time or money are major factors.

Tooth-Coloured Fills
In the past, having a filling meant placing unattractive, silver restorations in your teeth. Aside from appearance, many patients are concerned about the health aspects of metallic fillings. At Dr. Lisa Lindstrom Dentistry, we are totally mercury-free and our goal is to provide metal-free restorations wherever feasible. Tooth-coloured, composite resin fillings look good, are durable and can even restore strength to teeth weakened by decay or previous restorations.

Porcelain Veneers
These are one of the most popular forms of cosmetic restoration. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain which are custom-fitted to the teeth much like artificial nails are applied to fingers. Veneers are infinitely variable and can be used to improve the colour, size, shape and positions of your teeth. 

Inlays, Onlays & Crowns
In those situations where resin fillings may not be suitable we can choose from a wide range of aesthetic alternatives.

Unlike standard fillings, inlays and onlays are constructed in the laboratory by skilled dental technician. This process produces a restoration with the improved wear and durability characteristics needed for large fillings. These are then bonded to the teeth to reinforce the weakened structure created when a tooth has been badly decayed or broken.

Crowns are also constructed by laboratory technicians. These ceramic shells completely surround and restore tooth structure where it has been extensively damaged or destroyed. As with all of our restorations, at Dentistry on the Avenue our goal is to provide you with natural looking, metal-free crowns whenever possible. These provide the best combination of appearance and strength.
