I had a lot of anxiety around going to the dentist, and after carefully researching for a new local office to attend, I stumbled upon Vitacare and now I can't stop recommending them to friends and family! Never in my life did I think a time would come when I would feel neutral - never mind, happy - about going to the dentist, but I do! Dr. Lee has been lovely in every way and all of the support staff have been so great! 10/10, would recommend.

Never felt so good about my teeth and gum after cleaning. Had an amazing experience with Dr. Lee! She is very patient and takes the time to gently work on your teeth and inform you at the same time. Friendly staff and comfortable setting. They did their best to give me two appointments in such a short notice.

Our Specialties

Our Coquitlam, BC, practice can meet all of your family's general, cosmetic, and restorative dental needs in one convenient location. Dr. Wong and Dr. Lee offer several special procedures to give you the healthiest and best-looking smile of your life. 

Dental Implants

Dental implant

When you lose a tooth, the gap in your smile does more than affect your appearance. Missing tooth roots can cause bone recession, leading to an aged sunken appearance, and even further tooth loss.

Fortunately, our Coquitlam dentists can restore your smile and oral health with dental implants. These titanium or zirconium posts act as artificial tooth roots, stimulating the jawbone and anchoring an implant-supported restoration. Dental implants provide unparalleled stability and longevity for your custom crown, bridge, or denture, functioning just like natural teeth for decades to come. 

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are a highly versatile and affordable solution to a number of dental cosmetic imperfections, including chips, cracks, discoloration, and misalignment. These thin porcelain shells are artfully crafted to look just like your natural teeth - only better. During the procedure, our dentists will bond the veneer to the front surface of your tooth with special dental cement. With proper care, they will remain on your tooth for up to a decade. Unlike some cosmetic solutions which can take months to complete, Drs. Lee and Wong can completely transform with veneers in just two office visits. Ask our dentists about veneers during your next appointment at our Coquitlam office.

Invisalign

Invisalign aligner

Many patients at our Coquitlam, BC, practice would like a straighter smile but are hesitant to seek treatment with bulky metal braces. Fortunately, our dentists offer Invisalign® orthodontics, as a discreet alternative to braces. Using a series of custom-made clear aligner trays, we will progressively shift asymmetrical and crooked teeth into the proper position.

There are no dietary restrictions with Invisalign since the aligner trays are removable, allowing you to enjoy all your favorite foods without worry. Furthermore, the lack of metal archwires improves the comfort of orthodontic treatment and can be safer for patients who lead physically active and sporty lifestyles. Start the journey towards a more beautiful smile, and better self-confidence with Invisalign.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Patients who suffer from extensive dental damage, decay, and tooth loss may feel that their oral condition is beyond repair. However, the dentists at our Coquitlam practice can address multiple issues at once with a full mouth reconstruction. Combining multiple procedures into one streamlined treatment plan will restore your smile while also saving you time and money.

During your initial appointment, our dentists will review your options and show you a preview of your results with our digital smile design technology. Improve your health and experience a better quality of life by restoring your smile with a full mouth reconstruction.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

When wisdom teeth become impacted (meaning they erupt at an angle that disrupts nearby teeth and other tissues), they can cause a number of oral health complications. Even if you are not experiencing pain, changes in your alignment can make it difficult to clean your teeth properly, which can lead to gum disease and decay. 

If you are experiencing impaction, wisdom tooth removal can relieve your symptoms and prevent issues that may require extensive and costly restorative procedures. Our Coquitlam, BC, dentists will help you take care of your longterm oral health by removing wisdom teeth before they become a problem.

Dr. Wong was extremely attentative and thorough with my routine check up. He asked me many questions about my dental health that I have never been even asked before. He was skillful and super approachable! I would definitely recommend Dr. Wong to people of all ages including kids, he even has a video game set up for kids (or adults) who will be waiting around :)
