Have you seen Hollywood smiles on your favorite actress or actor?
They are veneers. Dental Spa can do that for your smile as well.
Worried about mercury leaking into your body from those old amalgam fillings?
Dr. Gertsen only does what is best for your overall health – composite and porcelain fillings, which blend with the coloring of the tooth.
Are you concerned about radiation from x-rays taken by doctors?
Dental Spa stays current with dental technology by using digital radiography.
Have you ever sat in a dental chair thinking to yourself, “What is this dentist talking about?” or “Why is s/he wanting to do this procedure? I do not feel any pain.”
Dr. Gertsen and his staff can show you, the patient, inside your mouth using an intraoral camera so you can know exactly why the procedure is needed to maintain the health and function of your teeth and gums. If there is a fractured tooth, he and his staff may recommend a filling to protect the viability of the tooth. Even though you may not feel pain or discomfort, the intraoral camera can show you the fracture magnified up to 40 times. Oftentimes, pain and discomfort occurs in the later stages of untreated teeth and gums problems.
Other benefits of Dental Spa are and emphasis on patient comfort, power bleaching, and dental education. The staff at the Dental Spa want you to feel relaxed while your smile is being perfected; therefore, our office implements aromatherapy and electrical anesthesia. For those patients who like immediate results, the Dental Spa offers power bleaching. Dr. Gertsen will consult with you before the procedure to determine which shade he expects from the bleaching. Within an hour you will have a whiter smile.
As a consumer of dentistry, it is important for you, the patient, to know what you are purchasing. Dental Spa offers several means of patient education on dentistry, which includes Casey. You will find a computer monitor in each operatory room. This educational software explains how a diagnosis is determined and illustrates the steps of the procedures performed at Dental Spa. You may be presented with two options for treatment. After viewing Casey and consulting with Dr. Gertsen, you will be able to make an educated decision. It is our desire at Dental Spa that you not leave our office with unanswered questions regarding your diagnosis or treatment.
We believe in a level of personal attention, care, and technical excellence – the best dentistry we can possibly perform. We enjoy the dramatic change in our patients who have completed extensive dental procedures-they feel good, look good, and enjoy the vitality that all the advances in dentistry can bestow.
