Technology has significantly advanced the field of orthodontics, and there are so many options available to our patients. We offer traditional metal braces, and a more aesthetic clear option.
Invisalign® is a gradual smile-straightening system involving custom-fit, transparent, removeable aligners. With Invisalign, you can brush and floss as normal, and there are no rules around what you can’t eat.
Teeth can be straightened at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. There are even virtually invisible, individualized options available – no one even has to know you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Being a part of someone’s orthodontic journey is a dream come true and a position not taken lightly at Shoreline Orthodontics. My own personal orthodontic journey was both fascinating and inspiring and I wish to be able to impart the same experience to the patients here. Learn more

I really had fun going to the orthodontist when I was in braces. Everyone in the office was happy and enjoyed their work. This and the fact that my father was an oral surgeon inspired me to become a dentist and eventually an orthodontist. I like solving puzzles, thinking, planning and organizing all of which I am able to do as an orthodontist. More importantly, I enjoy getting to know people and making them smile. Learn more

I really care about the people who trust their teeth to me. When you come to Shoreline Orthodontics for treatment you are more than a patient, you are part of the family. Your relationship with everyone at Shoreline will extend beyond the office and beyond your time in treatment. Learn more

I have always wanted to be an orthodontist. While visiting my family home a few years ago, my husband came across an old school project of mine from grade three. In it, we were asked to describe what we wanted to do when we grew up. My answer was “I want to be an orthodontist because I like to make people smile”. Years have gone by and it turns out my answer is still the same. What I have learned now is that what we do at Shoreline is so much more than making people smile – it is helping people find their confidence – and that lasts a lifetime. Learn more
Dr. Silas Yeung
Growing up, I needed extensive dental care due to my addiction to candy (and possibly lack of brushing). These experiences helped me recognize the tremendous long-term impact dental professionals can make. After practicing general dentistry for a few years, I decided to become an orthodontist, stemming from my passion for problem-solving and making people smile. Learn more
