Cosmetic Dentistry

Anxiety about dental treatment is a very real and very common thing.  Rest assured that you have many options to relieve anxiety and nervousness.

 

We can offer:

 

Calm, gentle and very effective local anesthetic techniques for pain-free treatment.

 

Pleasant diversion with headphones and satellite TV you can watch during treatment.

 

Laughing gas (nitrous oxide) for relief of mild-to-moderate anxiety.  Nitrous is a very safe and effective agent.  It is short-acting, readily reversible and you can drive or return to normal activities after your appointment.

 

Conscious sedation of relief of moderate-to-severe anxiety.  Dr. Wuensch has taken additional training and is licensed to administer oral medications (usually Halicon) for sedation.  You are not rendered unconscious like in the hospital but you are very relaxed and worry-free. 

 

Some patients also report they have no memory of the appointment.  You need to have someone accompany to the office and drive you home as well.

Custom Whitening Options

Tooth whitening is a procedure that lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can significantly improve how your teeth look.

The outer layer of a tooth is called the enamel. Every day, a thin coating forms on the enamel and picks up stains. Tooth enamel also contains pores that can hold stains. Whitening is not a one-time solution. It will need to be repeated from time to time if you want to maintain the brighter color.

The most common type of vital tooth whitening uses a gel-like whitening solution. This product usually contains hydrogen peroxide. You will place the whitening gel in a tray that resembles a night guard or mouth guard. Then you place the tray over your teeth for a certain period of time, anywhere from an hour or two to overnight.

Tooth whitening can be done in our office or at home. In-office (chairside) whitening allows Dr. Wuensch to supervise the process and your progress more closely.

In-office whitening usually takes 30 to 90 minutes. You will need at least two or three appointments. The number of visits required will depend on the type of discoloration and how white you want your teeth to be.
