Complete dental care from A to Z

Extend the natural life of your teeth and maintain good oral health with routine dental care. Regular visits to your dentist and quick intervention at the earliest sign of decay will save you from pain, discomfort and unexpected expenses. If your teeth, gums or oral health are causing problems for you, restorative dental care will put you back on the right track and make your mouth feel normal again. General dentistry puts your overall health first. Here are some of the results you can expect from preventative and restorative care:

    Preventative Care:
  • Super clean teeth that look whiter without whitening.
  • Xrays that detect problems while they’re still small.
  • Healthy gums that don’t itch or bleed.
  • Composite fillings that halt cavities in their tracks.
  • Less sensitivity from hot and cold foods.
  • Reverse and prevent tooth decay.
  • Extend the life of prosthetics and appliances.
    Restorative Dentistry:
  • Save your natural tooth from an infection
  • Replace missing teeth with a natural-looking solution
  • Repair damaged teeth to like-new condition
  • Custom-made prosthetics and appliances
  • Eat easier, sleep better and enjoy an enhanced quality of life.

Our General Dentistry services

Composite Fillings

Tooth-coloured fillings fill cavities to stop them from getting bigger or permanently damaging your tooth. These white fillings are matched to your natural teeth so they look and feel great.

Dental Bonding

Restore chips and cracked teeth or improve the look of healthy teeth.

Dental Bridges

Restore gaps and replace your tooth or teeth with a custom made dental prosthesis permanently bonded in place.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns make up an essential part of restorative dentistry, and can greatly improve the strength, appearance, and longevity of your teeth.

Dental Extractions

Whether you require standard tooth removal or more complex dental surgery, tooth extraction is a common procedure that can be performed with very little pain or discomfort.

Dental Implants

An Implant acts like a natural tooth root and is finished off with a restoration such as a dental crown to help restore the function of your teeth, look good and feel natural.

Dentures

Get new dentures or maintain and repair your full or partial dentures. These modern dental prostheses can replace several or all of your teeth with minimal discomfort.

Root Canal

Root canals can be careful, quick, and relatively pain-free bringing you immediate relief and saving your natural tooth.

Teeth Cleanings

Regular checkups and cleanings prevent gum disease and tooth decay. Plan your cleaning and checkup every 6 to 8 months to prevent the sudden onset of dental pain and unexpected expenses.

The importance of early intervention and routine care

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We really want to see you smile. Your health is our top priority and our routine care and recommendations for early intervention come from a place of care and concern. Keeping your teeth, gums, jaw and tongue healthy right now and repairing problems when they first appear will mean much less discomfort and pain and fewer unexpected expenses for you. And that is what keeps our patients smiling.

Keep your natural teeth for longer

Did you know the most common causes of tooth loss are cavities for young adults and gum disease in older adults? Practicing good oral hygiene habits at home is a great way to keep your mouth strong and healthy and at your routine exam, we can detect the earliest signs of gum disease and tooth decay and intervene before they get worse.

Save your money

Routine teeth cleaning and exams are relatively low-cost and predictable expenses that can fit in a budget. Treatments for the earliest signs of tooth decay, such as composite fillings, also happen to be relatively low-cost and a good long-term investment. More drastic procedures needed to repair more serious health issues often come with a bigger price tag.

Don’t even think about it

One of the greatest things about optimal oral health is that you don’t even think about it at all. There are no aches or inflammation. No all-consuming toothache. You don’t have to worry about the food you want to eat or feel self-conscious about your smile. Well maintained teeth are naturally beautiful, comfortable and reliable.

Contact us today

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

A routine check-up includes a teeth cleaning and an exam. Having your teeth cleaned and examined regularly will remove stuck-on-plaque and tartar that builds up even with routine brushing and flossing and will allow the dental team to monitor your general oral health with special attention to problem areas.
Leftover food particles, especially caught in hard to reach places, become a feast for the bacteria that live in our mouths. The bacteria multiply and produce an acidic byproduct that builds up on teeth and weakens enamel. Tooth decay can be accelerated with a diet high in sugar or acidic food and drinks like coffee or soda pop.
Some people are just genetically predisposed to have more cavities than others. For example, sometimes they are simply born more susceptible to cavity-causing bacteria or they have overcrowded teeth that are difficult to clean. The best thing you or anyone can do is to focus on having great oral hygiene and eating habits at home to stack the cards in your favour.
Yes. The best part about fillings is that they prevent further tooth decay and they prevent future pain. Getting a filling now is in your best interest while the problem is still small and easily managed.
Tooth decay can be prevented and sometimes even reversed with routine cleanings. Teeth that are showing early signs of decay can be treated with fluoride and composite fillings. A tooth that has become infected can still be salvaged with a root canal. Teeth that are badly decayed can be capped with a beautiful and natural-looking dental crown or resurfaced with dental veneers. As a last resort, teeth that are very badly decayed may be extracted and the function of your bite and smile can be restored with an implant or bridge. There are many treatment options available depending on your exact circumstances.
Preventative teeth cleaning and a routine exam are encouraged and completely safe. The goal here is to prevent the onset of oral infection and to treat dental symptoms that sometimes appear during pregnancy. In the event of a dental emergency such as an infection, more invasive procedures, like a root canal, may be required. Elective procedures such as teeth whitening should be postponed until after the baby arrives.

My in-laws and I recently had the pleasure of receiving dental services from Dr. Jimmy Loo, and I am compelled to share my overwhelmingly positive experience. Dr. Loo's exceptional patience stood out throughout my entire visit. He took the time to thoroughly explain each procedure, ensuring I felt comfortable and informed at every step. His ability to listen attentively to my concerns and address them with care is truly commendable. I highly recommend Dr. Jimmy Loo for anyone seeking dental services. His wonderful demeanor, extreme professionalism, and unwavering patience set him apart in the field. My dental experience was not only painless but genuinely pleasant, thanks to Dr. Loo and his dedicated team.

Have been seeing Dr Jimmy Loo since years ago, long before this new dental office is ever set up in Kerrisdale. Noticeable upgrade in every aspect including office location and interior design. Same professional service and attention to detail. Great experience starting from the welcoming smile of the reception. Very impressive!

Dr Loo is genuinely the nicest dentist I’ve ever met. Extremely helpful, friendly, and doesn’t mind taking time to explain things to you - unlike most doctors or dentists that are always in a hurry. The staff there is also all very friendly and helpful! Always a positive experience going there.

Dr Loo has been my dentist for over 12 years. I am always impressed by his consistency, dedication to his profession and genuine care for his patients. When discussing the procedure for either a root canal, bridge, crown or an extraction, he is patient and explains clearly all the options, pros/cons, and what to expect. During the procedure, he always makes sure you are fine and he is willing to make changes/adjustment for you to get the best results. He is very flexible to accommodate dental emergency requests and gives you a follow-up call himself after something serious such as a tooth extraction. All the staff on his team are friendly and helpful. Seeing a dentist is not a fun thing, however, I always feel reassured seeing Dr Loo, because I know I am in good hands. I highly recommend Dr Loo to anyone who is looking for a caring and competent dentist.

I had a good experience with Dr. Jimmy Loo 12 years ago when I needed to have a tooth extracted, and when he opened his own practice I was happy to become one of his clients. His new office is clean, functional and fully equipped with the latest technology. I was amazed to have a night guard made using imaging software rather than an actual physical mould. Dr. Loo and his staff are professional, personable and skilful. He makes sure you understand a procedure and always asks if you have any questions. He is also prepared to take on emergencies. My wife recently recommended him to a friend who needed an emergency procedure on a Saturday evening and he remained at his office to assist her. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a competent and caring dentist.
