Wide Range of Holistic
Dental Health Services

There is so much to love about Bel Canto Dental. You’ll find a team of dental professionals passionate about your whole health as well as your comfort. We want you to keep smiling with confidence for the rest of your life. From making sure that you’re protected from latex to avoiding flouride, we make an effort to provide the healthiest environment possible. Take a look at some of the things that make this clinic special.

Clearline® Clear Removable Braces

Here at Bel Canto Dental, you have convenient access to Clearline braces, a system that uses clear aligners to precisely realign your smile. Clearline braces produce proven results and best of all they are made here in Vancouver and are very competitively priced.

VELscope Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer can affect the soft tissues inside your mouth including your tongue, cheeks, lips and the roof and floor of your mouth. One of the major problems with this disease is late diagnosis, by which time treatment is more invasive and may be less successful. Catching it early is critical. VELscope scans use a special light to look for unhealthy tissues in your mouth. It’s quick and painless!

Basic Restorative Procedures

Our basic restorative procedures are metal-free because we believe this is a healthier way to restore your teeth. The latest dental materials are extremely strong, durable and beautiful. Unlike metals these materials can mend your teeth in a more natural way. They are designed to closely mimic your natural tooth structure and will work in harmony with your tooth and with your gums. Using these materials allows us to preserve more of your natural tooth structure while restoring a damaged tooth to full function. Once your tooth is restored you can bite, chew and smile with the confidence of knowing your teeth look great and are strong and healthy once more.

Latex-Free Dental Practice

At Bel Canto Dental, we take sensitivities towards latex products very seriously, especially since this problem is becoming more common. It is estimated that between 1% and 6% of the general population are sensitised towards latex and this percentage is higher for health care workers who are regularly exposed to latex.

Digital Dental X-Rays

Digital dental x-rays are also known as radiographs and are an essential part of any preventative dental care plan. We will regularly take digital dental x-rays to closely monitor your dental health and most healthy adults will only require a set of x-rays every two years. Children tend to require more frequent x-rays because their teeth and jaws are developing so rapidly.

Safe Amalgam Removal with HEPA Filter

All types of fillings need renewing periodically but we do need to take extra precautions when removing amalgams, a common older style of filling. This is because mercury vapour can be released when amalgam fillings are taken out which is why we follow a strict protocol to make sure you will not inhale any vapours. Once the amalgam is removed we will make sure it is correctly disposed of so it will not harm the environment.

Fluoride-Free Dental Office

We are committed to providing you and your family with the safest and most effective dental care available today. For this reason, Bel Canto is a fluoride-free dental practice. You do not need to use fluoride products to maintain a healthy mouth and there are more natural ways to prevent cavities and gum disease. We think it is time to sing a requiem mass for over-zealous fluoride use.

Laser Gum Therapy

Here at Bel Canto Dental, we have invested in up-to-date laser technology so we can provide you with the very best and most comfortable dental care. Laser dentistry is extremely useful when treating gum infections and we will suggest laser gum therapy if you have gum disease.

Intraoral Camera

Our intraoral camera is a vital piece of equipment because it allows you to see exactly what we see when our dentist examines your mouth. This is a tiny handheld camera looks a little like a pen and is used to take highly detailed images right inside your mouth. To keep you safe, it is fitted with a disposable cover that is freshly fitted for each patient.

Periowave™ Laser Light

Periowave is a quick and painless technology that utilizes a laser light to kill bacteria associated with periodontal (gum) disease.
