Porcelain veneers are thin, durable shells that are customized to fit over the visible surface of individual teeth. They’re an incredibly versatile cosmetic treatment because they address several different imperfections at once, including severe discoloration, chipped or broken teeth, and even slight misalignment. We’ll capture digital impressions of each of your prepared teeth that will be receiving veneers and send them off to our laboratory. As soon as they arrive, we’ll call you back in to cement them to the surface of your teeth, revealing a completely flawless and bright smile.
Lumineers are able to achieve similar transformations as porcelain veneers. The primary difference between the two treatments is that Lumineers are thinner and considered to be a more temporary procedure. Since we won’t have to account for the same thickness as veneers, we won’t need to prepare your teeth at all by removing a small portion of the enamel. This is a great option if you’re not 100 percent sure whether you want to invest in the permanent changes to your smile that porcelain veneers require.
Do you have an old metal crown or filling that people always stare at or comment on when you speak or smile? While these were once the top-tier of materials used for dental restorations, that’s not the case any longer. We recommend that our patients with metal crowns or fillings consider the natural-looking, safer, and more effective alternative that we offer, which are metal-free restorations. Crafted from porcelain and ceramic, our crowns and fillings are biocompatible, which means they’re less likely to leak and won’t cause gum or tooth discoloration, which are all common issues that our patients who have metal dental work experience.
Bonding is used to enhance the appearance and increase the strength of a damaged tooth. This procedure uses a tooth-colored composite resin that is sculpted over a tooth to conceal all kinds of minor imperfections, including chips, cracks, stains, and small gaps.
Teeth whitening is a procedure performed to brighten the shade of your smile through whitening agents. Although there are whitening kits that can be bought over the counter, the method that produces the fastest, safest, and most effective results is in-office whitening that is performed by a dentist.
These are aligners that can be used as an alternative to the traditional braces so that the patient does not have to wear unsightly metal brackets and wires.
When you see your smile in the mirror, does it look disproportional and overrun with pink gums? Your beautiful teeth that you work so hard to keep healthy should be the centerpiece of your smile, not your oral tissues! At Wauwatosa Dental Arts, we’re able to precisely reshape your gumline by removing excess oral tissue with our soft tissue dental laser to make your smile more uniform and beautiful. The process is simple and pain-free, and the best part about it is that we utilize the latest technology to do it, meaning you won’t have to encounter a scalpel and sutures.
Is the one hesitation that’s holding you back from receiving cosmetic dentistry to transform your smile the fact that you can’t see the results until after your treatment? That’s not the case when you visit Wauwatosa Dental Arts! We use advanced digital imaging technology to construct a life-like blueprint of your smile to show you what it will look like after you undergo the treatment you want to receive. That way, there’s no guesswork in the process at all.
