Dr. Sonny Kim is by far the best dentist I’ve ever had.

Dr. Sonny Kim is by far the best dentist I’ve ever had. I’ve had braces 3 times to close a gap between my front teeth but due to grinding, I broke my permanent retainer and the gap came back in another spot that was quite noticeable. I asked Dr.Kim what we could do to fix it without having veneers put on my front. 6 teeth. He made by HAND a mold to show me what it would look like if he just made each tooth a little bigger. I loved it immediately and booked an appointment to have it done permanently. My smile has changed for the better and I am absolutely in love with his work. No more getting my tongue caught in the gap or showing when I smile. The fact that he did this all by hand instead of sending it out shows how much he cares and how much he values his work. No other dentist could do what he did without it looking funny. I am super happy with the results and find myself smiling more than I use to. Oh, and did I mention that he got the colour perfect so you can’t see where the bonding starts and ends on my teeth. Kudos to Dr. Kim for making my vision a reality.

Once again Dr.Kim, I can’t thank you enough.
