One Day Dentistry
These photos below show our latest smile enhancement success story that we accomplished through cosmetic bonding in just one office visit, in a few hours.
Dr. Martens and her team perform take-home teeth-whitening treatments to lighten stains and brighten discolored teeth, in about two weeks.
You will start by having impressions taken of the upper arch or lower arch or both, depending on your preference. The in-office lab will fabricate your whitening trays, and you will return within a day or two to pick up your take-home whitening kit. You will be given instructions on how to achieve a successful result as well as how to keep your whitening trays clean. Patients are usually able to complete the whitening process to a satisfactory whiter shade and still have whitening gel left over to use for occasional touch up applications. Touch-up whitening kits are always available for purchase at the office that you can use to maintain your beautiful results.
Alternative Teeth-Straightening Treatment Options
If you wish your teeth were straighter or better aligned, you will be happy to know that there are alternative treatment options to traditional metal braces.
Six Month Smiles® offers an alternative to conventional orthodontia. Six Month Smiles® typically works faster than other teeth-straightening methods, because treatment focuses on improving the alignment of the teeth that others see when you smile or speak. In addition, Six Month Smiles® involves the use of clear brackets and white wires, so very few people will be able to tell that you are straightening your teeth. When the optimum result is achieved, you will be provided with retainers to help your teeth remain straight as well as take-home whitening, which is provided at no additional charge.
Dr. Martens also offers Invisalign®, a clear teeth-straightening system that allows crooked teeth to straighten nearly invisibly. Dr. Martens will fit you for custom plastic trays, called aligners. Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks before moving on to the next set. The process is repeated until your teeth are straight. You will then be provided with retainers to help your teeth remain straight as well as take-home whitening, which is provided at no additional charge.
For patients with minor dental imperfections, Dr. Martens may recommend dental veneer treatment. Dr. Martens puts porcelain veneers over the front surface of teeth, to conceal small imperfections, such as cracked, chipped or oddly shaped teeth or deeply set stains on the teeth that do not respond to teeth-whitening treatment.
Placing porcelain dental crowns is another effective way to conceal dental imperfections. Dental crowns are placed over the top of a prepared tooth to bolster decaying teeth or to improve the look of cracked, chipped or otherwise damaged teeth.
Full Mouth Restorations
For patients with multiple aesthetic concerns, Dr. Martens might recommend a full mouth restoration, or a smile makeover. As the name suggests, a full mouth restoration involves using several cosmetic dentistry treatments to restore the look of the patient’s entire smile.
About Dr. Martens’ Practice
Dr. Martens offers concierge dental care in a boutique-style practice. Most of her patients come to her as a result of a word-of-mouth referral from a friend or family member. Dr. JoAnn Martens is the proud recipient of the Waunakee Tribune’s Readers’ Choice “Best Dentist” and “Best Customer Service” awards, which she has received for the past four years.
Thanks to her concierge-style approach to dentistry, Dr. Martens is able to work with you on a one-on-one basis — from your first dental appointment to your final follow-up visit — to ensure that all your oral health and cosmetic dentistry goals are achieved. Although Dr. Martens is a very experienced dentist with many years under her belt, she refers patients to an endodontist for root canals or a periodontist for major gum issues, so you can be assured that you are receiving the best care and treatment results from specialists that she trusts, who treat your type of issues every day, all day. Her main focus is the patient experience and offering nothing but the very best in treatment and customer service.
