Dr. Man received this award when he graduated from UBC.

Our Featured Services For a Healthy, Beautiful Smile
If discolored teeth are making you hide your smile, contact our dentistry practice to ask about professional teeth whitening. Our options include in-office Zoom!® teeth whitening and take-home bleaching kits. These cosmetic dentistry treatments can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile during a single appointment or over the course of about two weeks. Professional teeth whitening is a non-invasive and affordable way to brighten your smile and boost your confidence.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is secured over a damaged tooth to provide support and protection. A dental crown looks and functions just like a natural tooth: once placed, a crown is indistinguishable from your natural teeth. This restoration protects the remaining natural tooth structure and repairs the appearance of your smile. A crown can either be placed over an existing tooth to strengthen it or over a dental implant to replace a missing tooth.
A dental filling restores the health of a tooth with a cavity. Our dentist will remove the decaying portion of your natural tooth and then fill the hole that remains. We typically use composite (white) filling materials because they blend in with the surrounding structure of the teeth and look natural. However, our dentist can place amalgam (silver) fillings as an alternative if you so choose.
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that fit over your existing teeth to create a more uniform smile. Porcelain veneers can conceal chips, cracks, discoloration, minor misalignment, and other aesthetic flaws to enhance your appearance. During the veneers procedure, a portion of your enamel must be removed to create space for the veneer to be attached, which makes this treatment irreversible. With proper care, your veneers can last for over a decade before they need to be replaced.
