My experience with Downtown Dentistry has been wonderful, especially with Dr. Reddy and his staff. I have always been greeted with respect, dignity and a deep desire to provide the best possible care. I underwent several dental procedures like cleaning, fillings, gum disease treatment and tooth extraction. Dr. Reddy was very encouraging and informative throughout different procedures. He also encouraged me to get a cavity filled without any anesthesia. I would like to pass on the message to anyone reading this, when possible please consider getting cavity filled without needles and numbing. There is no other dentist I would go to or recommend! When you find the best, you keep it!

They are so nice and great. The minute I got there, I felt so cozy that I decided to get them to take care of my teeth. Especially there is a Korean doctor in the dentistry. She is decent and professional.

Overall, an exceptional experience with my Hygienist. Yolanda made me feel warm and welcomed as she had remembered me from past visits. She was also able to relieve my anxiety over the cleaning by creating a meaningful conversation that took my mind off of what was happening. Would definitely recommend for anyone who is looking for a welcoming dentistry office!

Dr. Michelle Fung is the best dentist I've ever had and by far the most attentive. She's kind, encouraging, and I truly felt like my comfort was her priority. I'm a huge wimp when it comes to any kind of dental procedures so I really appreciated her approach. I learn something new about how to take better care of my teeth every time I see her, and she takes her time to answer all of my questions. Her personality actually makes me look forward to visiting the dentist, which I never thought was possible :P

I've been going to Downtown Dentistry for almost 17 years. Dr. Chan, who is my dentist, is to be commended on the highly competent staff employed there. The dental professionals and support staff are first rate. I've never had cause for complaint in all my visits. Currently I am in the process of completing the 'Invisalign' process to straighten my teeth. I have recommended Downtown Dentistry to others owing to their excellent and caring service.

I went for cleaning and check up. Eni was my hygienist who did an amazing job of cleaning my teeth. She took her time and carefully removed any plaque that was left due to braces. Throughout the cleaning she shared very useful advice and hygiene tips on protecting my teeth with braces. I left feeling very happy.

The hygienist that I’ve dealt with today was amazing! She also shared additional and very interesting information. I highly recommend this place to everyone looking for top of the line service!

Had been to this clinic after moving to the city. I was skeptical initially, but this clinic is really on par with their reviews and standards. Met Dr. Reddy N.C. and I am very happy with his work. He was so good in diagnosing the issue and explain it in laymen terms. Looking forward for the treatment.

Dr. Fung is changing and raising the standard for all dentists out there. Absolutely goes out of her way to make sure that you’re the most comfortable and remembers all of your preferences and sensitivities. Keeps you informed about what procedure she’s doing and why and if you’re curious or have any question, she’s a book of knowledge. And what’s so rare to find- she’s just a great and fun person and shows it during each visit. She makes greatest atmosphere between her, the patient and whoever is assisting her. Could not be happier to be her patient. Clinic is super clean and friendly too!

Dr. Reddy has been very helpful. He is very considerate. He listened to my problem and suggested best possible treatments. He is a thorough professional and treated me with utmost care. What else do we expect from a dentist. I am going to be a regular from now for his consult. Thank you Dr. Reddy

I went in because I was trying to find a dentist to transfer my Invisalign case to, since I recently moved. Dr Amelia came off as competent and knowledgeable and she seemed to getting care that I was happy with the end results of my treatment. I'll definitely be considering continuing my treatment with her.

Dr. Chan is by far the best dentist I’ve ever had. She is so friendly and kind that my 3 and 6 year-old-kids finally enjoyed going to a dentist. The front desk staff and hygienists are incredibly nice and they make it very clear customer satisfaction is the number one priority for them. I highly recommend Dr. Chan and associates to all my friends and patients.

Great dentist! I really appreciated the treatment coordinator Marsha. She walked me through how my appointments would work and the costs and it made me feel very comfortable. The space was clean & the staff was nice. It’s a big office so they can do anything you need on the premises. I will keep going there from now on!

Straighter teeth can improve your appearance, your self confidence and even your health. Going to your dentist is the right first step if your teeth are crowded, crooked or misaligned. Your dentist might suggest different options, since both Invisalign and Veneers can give you a straighter smile. Your dentist can help you make the decision, but it also helps to know something about the choices yourself. Then, you can ask better questions and feel surer of your decision.

 Consider Your Teeth-Straightening Goals

Think about why you want your teeth straightened. Is it all about appearance for you? If so, either option can be a good choice. Invisalign makes your teeth look straighter, but so can veneers. An advantage of veneersis that they hide stains and discolorations that Invisalign won’t, which is why many people choose to have Invisalign followed by veneers.

Do you want to have better oral health? Dental veneers can help you take pride in your appearance and thus inspire you to take better care of your teeth. However, veneers require irreversible treatment as the front surface of your tooth’s enamel is removed. Veneers don’t actually make your teeth straighter; they just look that way. Invisalign, on the other hand, can improve your oral health by giving you straighter teeth that are easier to care for and clean.

 Recognize What Veneers and Invisalign Can Correct

Veneers correct visual imperfections such as slightly crooked front teeth. Invisalign can correct deeper problems like crowding, bite issues and crooked teeth. As orthopedist Janet Stoess-Allen explains, the best use of veneers is to cover healthy teeth for cosmetic reasons. When the teeth, especially the bottom teeth, are crowded, orthopedic treatment is the best first step. Invisalign is a true orthopedic treatment, while veneersare primarily cosmetic.

 Know Your Time Investment

How long are you willing to wait to have more beautiful teeth? Your dentist can prepare your teeth and install the veneers in two weeks or less. Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that usually takes an average of 12 months to completely straighten your teeth.

 Understand Life After Treatment

After having cosmetic orthodontic treatment with Invisalign, your teeth are in healthy positions. Otherwise, they are just as durable and hassle-free as they ever were. Veneers may require you to make certain lifestyle changes. You will need to avoid red wine, smoking, caffeine and other substances that can stain or discolor the veneers. You will also have to be more careful not to chip or crack the veneers than you would after having only Invisalign.

 Compare Costs

The costs for veneers can be as high as $2000 CAD per tooth. The trays for Invisalign may cost more, depending on how many veneers you need. However, when you consider how long each treatment will last, Invisalignactually may be cheaper. Veneers have to be replaced every 10 to 15 years. The entire Invisalign treatment may never have to be done again, especially if you keep going to your dentist so they can correct minor issues before they become major. Wearing a retainer can also eliminate the need to have Invisalign redone.

So, what is right for you? It may be different from what is right for someone else. Consider all the factors and discuss the options with your dentist. When you do, you can make the right decision based on your teeth and your preferences.
