Modern Techniques for Modern Smiles

Dr. Melanie uses modern techniques like supra-gingival, minimally invasive dentistry. This approach allows the patient to maintain more of the natural tooth structure, leading to a more durable tooth. It keeps restorative work above the gum tissue as much as possible, helping to maintain healthier gums. In addition, Dr. Melanie treats patients using onlays instead of dental crowns whenever possible. Porcelain onlays keep more of the natural tooth structure intact.

Treating Patients With Modern Technology

Dental technology has revolutionized how dentists treat patients, and Dr. Melanie is no exception. She can deliver a more accurate diagnosis and create a more thorough treatment plan with diagnostic tools like digital X-rays, intraoral cameras, and a top-of-the-line intraoral scanner. This scanner can not only show our patients exact 3D digital replicas of their teeth and surrounding tissues but it can also detect cavities in between teeth with near-infrared imaging (NIRI) technology, map your bite health, and show you what your teeth would look like after using Invisalign. Dr. Melanie enhances your patient experience and provides the highest quality care.

Been going here for 10+ years. Always been great. Dr. Schlang is a fantastic dentist with cheerful bedside manner. She also has excellent hygienists (I think that's what you call them?) and awesome receptionists. They're always on time (in my experience) and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great dental office on the Westside.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Melanie for almost ten years.  The office is open on Saturdays and that is very convenient and makes it easier to keep up with my cleanings and check-ups. Doreen always explains the billing and provides an estimate before any dental treatment. The staff here are always welcoming and provide excellent dental services.

The name should be Gentle. This is the nice place to get your teeth fixed. I recently had a cavity, and called them up. I was in and out in a flash with a great big smile. I recommend Wilshire Dental to my family and friends.
