Our dental team is focused on restorative care for the whole family. We offer a wide range of procedures and treatment options for all your needs. We also focus on preventative care to make sure your teeth and smile stay strong in between visits to the dentist.
Improvements to dentistry mean we no longer have to rely on the old drills and numbing that made visits to the dentist so unwelcome in the past. Laser Dentistry offers us new tools to treat many dental issues with a DIAGNOdent® laser and the Kayo Key Laser 3 and make visiting the dentist pain free and safer than ever. With laser dentistry, we treat your restorative needs and offer benefits like:
- No drills, no shots, no pain!
- Less discomfort during gum treatments
- Hard tissue laser dentistry results in faster composite curing and harder composites, which makes your teeth stronger
- No cutting or stitches during gum surgery, which results in less bleeding and promotes healing
- Less post-operative discomfort and swelling
- Laser dentistry reduces or eliminates the need for anaesthesia
- Hard tissue laser dentistry preserves more tooth structure during cavity removal
123 Dentist in Kerrisdale offers partial and full dentures for patients who need an affordable solution to badly damaged teeth. Modern dentures and partial dentures are comfortable, functional and easy to maintain.
Replace existing silver-mercury fillings with white composite fillings that are tough and match your teeth. For new fillings, composite fillings are covered by many insurance plans and are our recommended option for fillings.
VELscope is a British Columbia created technology that helps dentists conduct comprehensive Cancer screenings and save lives. Oral Cancer is on the rise and 123 Dentist in Kerrisdale believes in annual cancer screenings for all our patients. Early detection is the best defense and in some cases the only defense for oral cancer. VELscope exams are quick, painless and involve a harmless blue laser to highlight lumps and bumps on the gums, cheeks or under the tongue.
Digital x-rays are a modern improvement to traditional x-rays. They are safer, use less radiation and are more environmentally friendly. Digital x-rays allow for instant viewing and improved detailing on colour HD monitors and they allow our dentists to assess and plan treatment in less time. We can also refer patient files and digital x-rays to any dentist in the 123 Dentist network.
Talk to us about oral and IV sedation options for select procedures. With today’s advancements in restorative dentistry sedation is less necessary even for the most nervous patients, but we do offer sedation for dental surgery and anxious patients.
Your smile is important to you, that much is clear, but did you know a great smile is linked to a more productive, happy and fulfilling life?
Our ability to smile is linked to how others perceive us day-to-day, from co-workers and significant others to family and friends. Everyone else notices how much you smile before you do, and even if you have a million reasons to smile, sometimes it’s difficult to overcome insecurities and concerns about your teeth. Cosmetic Dentistry can improve your smile, and help you become more confident, more relaxed and more sociable.
If you’ve ever needed an excuse to get that movie start smile, dental technologies have improved in recent years to make almost any cosmetic restoration possible. Cosmetic services at 123 Dentist in Kerrisdale include:
