Complete Treatment to Protect and Enhance Your Smile
As a skilled, compassionate West Allis, WI, dentist, Dr. Yvonne Stubbs offers a complete array of treatments to meet your needs. No matter what treatment you require, you will benefit from Dr. Stubbs clinical expertise, personalized treatment, and commitment to excellence.
Routine cleanings and exams are a key component of good dental care. Dr. Stubbs uses advanced technology to check for the early signs of decay and other dental concerns. Digital x-rays provide sharper, more detailed images than traditional film x-rays, and DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection revels even the smallest cavities and lesions below the tooth surface. For optimal dental health, you should schedule biannual appointments with Dr. Stubbs. At these visits, she will also provide a thorough dental cleaning and conduct an oral cancer screening.
Although regular dental visits help to protect your teeth, decay and dental damage can still occur. Fortunately, Dr. Stubbs offers a variety of restorative treatments to correct your smile. Treatment options include:
- Crowns: Custom-made caps can strengthen a weakened tooth and restore its full functionality.
- Dentures: We can fit you for either traditional, natural tooth-supported partial dentures or full dentures for patients missing all their teeth.
- Fillings: By placing a filling, Dr. Stubbs can halt the spread of decay and reinforce your weakened tooth. Filling options include resin and traditional silver, depending on patient preference and need.
- Root canal treatment (limited to front teeth): If decay has spread to your dental roots, a root canal can end your discomfort, stop the spread of bacteria, and save your tooth.
Implants and Tooth Replacement
If you are missing teeth or if your teeth are too damaged to repair, Dr. Stubbs can provide highly lifelike implants, bridges, or dentures. Dental implants are permanent restorations that offer unparalleled stability, durability, and protection for your oral health. With specialized training in implant placement, Dr. Stubbs furnishes top-quality service and stunningly lifelike restorations. Dental implants can help replace a single tooth or multiple teeth. There is also the option of implant-supported dentures, of which there are many different kinds (ask Dr. Stubbs what kind may be best for you!).
Although bridges and dentures do not offer the same degree of stability, they are still excellent tooth replacement options, especially if you have a compromised jawbone structure or if you are on a budget. Dr. Stubbs works with an excellent dental lab to provide you with beautifully crafted, realistic restorations.
Perhaps you have healthy teeth, but you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile. Dr. Stubbs provides several cosmetic procedures that can enhance your grin and self-confidence. Using custom-made whitening and peroxide-based gel, our whitening treatment can lighten your smile by several shades in just two weeks. By offering at-home treatment, we make your whitening procedure affordable and convenient. If you want more comprehensive results, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers. These thin, custom-made shells adhere to the front of your teeth, and they may be an excellent solution if you have cracked, chipped, or misshapen teeth. They can also cover up intrinsic stains and close gaps in your smile.
