Frequently Asked Questions

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is dental treatment that improves the beauty and health of one’s smile.. Nearly every dental procedure has 2 elements: Aesthetics and function. Quality cosmetic dentistry takes both of these elements into consideration; so that one may rest assured they will not only look great, but enjoy hassle free long-term results.

What are some examples of cosmetic dentistry procedures?

Cosmetic dentistry covers a multitude of procedures from smile teeth whitening to repairing, straightening, replacing or enhancing the appearance of one’s teeth and smile. Most common is the use of Cosmetic Veneers or Laminates. These thin, but durable restorations are much more conservative to the natural tooth than traditional crowns, and have become a very popular way to enhance a smile. In certain procedures dental bonding can be a way to shape teeth as well. .

What is a cosmetic veneer?

Modern metal-free dentistry has evolved to a point where we can be much more conservative with tooth preparation. A veneer is essentially a conservative crown. Rather than encompassing the entire tooth, a cosmetic veneer, essentially covers the visible part of a tooth preserving a large amount of the natural tooth structure. Veneers can straighten, lengthen and whiten teeth to provide the desired smile and bite. Each veneered tooth must be shaped. This means that an outer layer of the natural tooth structure is removed to allow space for veneer placement.

How long do veneers last?

With proper oral hygiene, a veneer can last a lifetime. To increase the lifespan of your veneers, make sure to floss daily and brush gently at least twice a day with ADA approved toothpaste.

Will veneers eventually stain?

Porcelain veneers are non-porous and will not stain or discolor. Is there a difference in quality among various types of veneers and crowns? Yes. Aesthetic dentistry is the ultimate blend of art and science. If quality and service are important to you, look for experience and proven results. There are many different materials used in veneers and crowns.

What is an all-porcelain crown or veneer?

Many restorations are designed with a metal lining covered with porcelain (porcelain fused to metal or PFM). They appear “flat”because the metal does not let light pass through like a natural tooth does. There is often a dark line next to the gum line that is undesirable (often the metal irritates the adjacent gum tissue in the form of an allergic reaction). Always inquire! Dentists will say that it is porcelain. And it is…on the outside. Dr. Wilk and Dr. Chang provides 100% all-porcelain restorations. When properly seated, they are as strong as or stronger than their metal predecessors. And the appearance is strikingly similar to a natural tooth, allowing light to pass through (referred to as translucency).

Why would someone need or be interested in cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry provides more than just a beautiful smile and a healthy mouth. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), cosmetic dentistry has also been shown to improve a person’s overall health and emotional well-being. An improved smile can boost a person’s self-image, making them more confident in their daily lives. Cosmetic dentistry is for anyone who desires to improve the quality of their smile, their oral health and their quality of life. The very essence of cosmetic dentistry almost always improves one’s bite, health and function.

How has technology improved in cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dental techniques have advanced dramatically over the last decade. The qualities of materials such as porcelain and composite resins have improved, giving a more lifelike appearance. And, where gum-tissue surgery and contouring was once performed with scalpels, lasers now provide fast, non-surgical results.

Braces or veneers?

If you are happy with the shape and color of your teeth, then orthodontic teeth straightening may be a good option for you. If you want to whiten and enhance the shape of your teeth as well as straighten them, then cosmetic dentistry will give you the results you are looking for while saving you time and money. Clear teeth aligners provide a great alternative to traditional braces. Invisible Aligner treatment is the latest generation of “invisible” teeth aligners. Though not always necessary, some people will choose to undergo some teeth straightening prior to being fitted with cosmetic veneers.

What is bonding and how is it different from a veneer?

Bonding is done by placing tooth-like material onto the tooth to build it up and/or to alter its shape. Over time the bonded portion of a tooth will change color as compared to the natural, un-bonded portion of the tooth. The advantage of bonding is that it is an ultra-conservative way to restore a tooth and is completed in one visit. The disadvantage is that it will discolor over time and is more prone to breakage than a veneer.

Is cosmetic dental work expensive?

Cosmetic dental work is probably not as expensive as you think. The cost of cosmetic dentistry depends on how much you want or need. Like any cosmetic process, costs will vary with the amount of product or services you desire. A skilled cosmetic dentist can explain various fees and the best procedure for you. Also, some cosmetic dental options are covered by insurance if “need” can be established. People often take advantage of a monthly payment plan provided through

What Our Patients Say...


I have been coming here for years. Dr Z and Chang took over which made me nervous at first but they are both amazing! They provide amazing care, go over all my options, help me understand what I need, sneak me in when I have an ache. I also love Rosa and do my best to go to her for all my cleanings. Yolanda is always super helpful on the phone and gets my messages back timely. Their whole staff make the experience of going to a dentist a much nicer one. I would recommend 1,000%

Nayeli Retana


I needed a dentist since I recently moved and I googled “dentist near me” and Artistic came up along with many other dental offices. It was only 5 minutes from my house but I’m sure glad I picked this office. Dr Chang and the crew treated my child and I. She was extremely delicate and knowledgeable about our dental health. I was very impressed with my experience here and I would highly recommend this dental office!

Nia Harrison


Dr. Wilk and the staff have helped me so much with the pain I have been experiencing. They have gotten me in for an emergency when I was crying in pain and Doctor Wilk has helped me with treatment and understanding where my pain is coming from! He has great patient bed side manners as does all the staff. I will continue to come back if further treatment is needed!

Felicia Cedillo


Dr. Z is very knowledgeable, caring, and patient. He knows what he is doing, explains things well, and respects the patient’s wishes. I have had many procedures and he is always trustworthy and consistent with my whole family. I highly recommend him and drive across town to keep him as my dentist.



Wonderful experience. Staff and doctor treat you like family here. I just wish I found this dentist sooner.
