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

​Using the latest innovations in modern dentistry and state-of-the-art technology, our dentists can give you a healthy smile. Dr. Wong and Dr. Lee will gladly answer any questions you may have regarding your treatment or the state of your smile. Our practice can meet all of your family's general, cosmetic, and restorative dental needs in our comfortable Coquitlam, BC, office.

Dental Implants

When you lose a tooth, the gap in your smile does more than just affect your appearance. The roots of a tooth provide essential stimulation to your jawbone. When you lose a tooth, the lack of stimulation causes the bone tissue in your jaw to begin to recede. As this atrophy continues, it causes the surrounding teeth to shift, which can lead to further tooth loss and an aged, sunken facial appearance.

Our Coquitlam, BC, dentists can restore your smile and oral health with dental implants. These titanium or zirconium devices replace lost tooth roots and provide your jawbone with the needed stimulation to stop further bone loss. Implants also provide unparalleled stability for crowns, bridges, and dentures.

Veneers

If your smile is compromised by imperfections such as chipped, worn, or slightly crooked teeth, veneers can be a versatile solution. Our dentists can provide custom, ultra-thin restorations made from advanced ceramics that mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural enamel. These remarkably strong veneers are colour-matched to the shade of your surrounding teeth to blend seamlessly with your smile. They attach to the front dental surface to conceal imperfections.

Veneers can provide beautiful results on a very short timeline. This makes veneers an excellent cosmetic treatment for patients with a fast-approaching event such as a wedding, where they want to look their best. The durable porcelain used to craft veneers is remarkably strong. With proper care, veneers can last 10 years or longer.

Invisalign

Many adults and adolescents would like a straighter smile, but the thought of bulky metal braces makes them hesitate to seek treatment. Our dentists in Coquitlam, BC, offer Invisalign® as a discrete alternative to braces. Using a series of removable aligner trays that are custom-made to fit comfortably within your smile, Invisalign offers qualifying patients a number of advantages when compared to traditional braces. 

There are no diet or hygiene restrictions since the aligner trays are removable. This allows you to continue to enjoy your favorite foods and maintain your daily brushing and flossing routine. The clear plastic trays used in the Invisalign system are virtually invisible. Your friends and family may not even notice that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Patients who suffer from extensive dental damage, decay, and tooth loss may feel that their oral health issues are hopeless. If you suffer from multiple dental problems, the dentists at our Coquitlam dentistry practice can address them all at once with a full mouth reconstruction treatment plan to restore the appearance, health, and function of your smile.

During your initial appointment with our dentists, our team can review your options and provide you with a preview of your new smile thanks to digital technology. By combining treatments, we can save you both time and money. 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. If you are experiencing impaction, wisdom tooth removal can relieve pain and prevent issues such as infection and decay. Our Coquitlam, BC, dentists can also help prevent the need for more expensive procedures and invasive surgical procedures by removing wisdom teeth before they become a problem. 

Not everybody will experience pain or complications due to their wisdom teeth. But even if your wisdom teeth cause no issues, their position in your smile makes them difficult to brush and floss properly, which can lead to decay and gum disease. Preventive wisdom teeth removal can help you avoid these complications.

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 :)
