Cosmetic Dentistry

Aesthetic imperfections such as chips, cracks, dental discoloration, and gapped teeth can detract from the appearance of your smile.

Advances in cosmetic dentistry allow dentists to address these flaws, enhancing your smile and boosting your confidence.

Drs. Alex Wong and Vanessa Lee offer a wide range of cosmetic procedures at Vitacare Dental Centre in Coquitlam, BC.

Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

Enhanced Appearance

The most obvious benefit of aesthetic dental treatment is that it allows cosmetic dentists to improve the balance, beauty, and symmetry of your smile. These options can also reduce the signs of aging by giving you a more youthful appearance.

Improved Confidence

When you look your best, you feel your best. Because cosmetic dentistry procedures can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile, they can also give you a boost in confidence and self-esteem.

Motivation for Better Oral Health

While cosmetic treatments do not directly impact oral health, they often encourage patients to take better care of their teeth and gums. When you have an attractive smile, you want to maintain it.

What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Accomplish?

Am I a Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?

To qualify for any type of cosmetic procedure, you must:

Be in Good Oral Health

Patients should not have severe decay, gum disease, or any other condition that could affect their oral health or the results of treatment. If necessary, restorative procedures can be performed to improve oral health prior to cosmetic work.

Have Realistic Expectations

In addition, individuals should have a thorough understanding of their treatment plan and realistic expectations of the results that can be achieved. Candidacy can be discussed in more detail during a consultation at our Coquitlam practice.

Common Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Dental Bonding

This minimally invasive procedure involves the application of composite resin to the affected areas. Bonding can conceal minor imperfections like chips, cracks, and tooth discoloration. Once complete, the results last about five to seven years on average. Because it does not require the removal of enamel, this procedure is reversible.

Contact Us

Porcelain Veneers

Like dental bonding, porcelain veneers can alter the size and shape of the teeth. Each veneer is custom-made and adheres to the front surface of the treated tooth. They are incredibly natural looking and have a translucency that is similar in appearance to dental enamel. Porcelain veneers can typically be placed during two visits to our Coquitlam practice. 

More about Veneers

Invisalign

Straighter teeth are not only more attractive, they are also easier to clean. Invisalign® is a popular orthodontic alternative that improves tooth alignment with clear trays. This system is preferable to traditional braces for several reasons: the aligners are discreet, more comfortable, and removable.

More about Invisalign

Teeth Whitening

Extrinsic dental stains, the discoloration caused by dark-colored foods and beverages, can be addressed with professional teeth whitening. We offer in-office and at-home whitening treatments. Both can lighten natural tooth enamel by several shades. We can discuss which teeth whitening option is best for you during an exam or consultation.

Smile Makeover

If you have multiple cosmetic issues, a smile makeover is an excellent solution. This treatment plan combines two or more procedures. For instance, many individuals combine porcelain veneers and teeth whitening for more comprehensive results. Each smile makeover plan is custom-designed to meet your unique needs.

Combining Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry

In addition to cosmetic services, we also offer a wide range of restorative options, including dental implants, denturescrowns, bridges, fillings, full mouth reconstruction, and more. Depending on your needs, our dentistry team in Coquitlam can combine these services to improve your oral health and aesthetics. For example, we can place dental implants to replace missing teeth, and then place crowns or veneers on your remaining teeth for beautiful results. No matter what your specific needs may be, we can design a plan that will help you achieve the results you desire.

I got a couple of fillings here that gave me trouble and kept needing adjusting. I had to go back enough that the receptionist knew who I was when I went in. The staff was nice and caring, and Dr. Lee texted me a week or so after each appointment to see how I was doing. 
Overall, a good experience for going to the dentist.

I had some serious work done that required a lots of hours in the chair, ithe work required  the removal and replacement of crowns.  The work was done efficiently and carefully with lots of respect and concern for the patient.  I am very pleased with the results and would recommend Vitacare to my friends.
