Exceptional Dentistry in Tucson

At Great Smile Dentistry, Dr Vaterlaus knows the importance of having healthy teeth and knows that when your smile looks good, you feel good. He uses the best combination of preventive dental care and restorative techniques to give you the beautiful smile you deserve.

Preventive Dental Care

A beautiful smile begins with healthy teeth.  Taking preventative measures will help you avoid costly and painful dental emergencies and preserve one of your most valuable assets – a beautiful smile!

We offer complete routine dental exams, children’s exams and cleanings and provide the education you need to achieve complete dental health.  We also provide superior non-surgical care for patients with periodontal problems.

Teeth Whitening

The KöR Whitening system is the most effective and reliable way to add the "WOW" factor to your smile. In fact, the KöR Whitening System is so effective, it is the only recognized whitening system that whitens even tetracycline-stained teeth in a short time (previously thought to be impossible). These amazing results are typically achieved with little to no sensitivity, and is an entirely permanent solution (unlike other methods) to keeping your smile bright and white! 

Porcelain Veneers

If unsightly gaps, poorly shaped teeth or deep discoloration are keeping you from smiling, thin porcelain veneers may be the answer.  You can enjoy a natural-looking, beautiful smile in just a few visits.

White Fillings

We use only the best quality, high strength, natural tooth-colored dental restoration materials with no metal or mercury. Our materials actually strengthen your teeth, dramatically reducing the potential for tooth cracking.


Now you can have beautiful porcelain crowns.  Our natural looking, reinforced porcelain restorations provide beauty, strength and durability.  They're a perfect solution for cracked or weak teeth.

Are missing teeth ruining your health and confidence?  Now there is a permanent solution to missing teeth – dental implants.  Implants look and function exactly like natural teeth to restore the beauty of your smile.  Unlike many dental offices Dr. Vaterlaus offers this procedure completely in house.


For cases not suited to dental implants, Dr. Vaterlaus is skilled at creating exceptionally comfortable and well functioning dentures that look completely natural.  Loose and ill-fitting dentures can have a negative impact on your speech, social confidence, and your health.  If your current dentures fit or function poorly, call Dr Vaterlaus – he can help you!

Endodontic Care

Sometimes a tooth is so badly decayed the only option to prevent further damage and infection is a root canal.  Dr. Vaterlaus practices the most advanced, painless techniques available.  We’ll be happy to explain the procedure and be sure you are completely comfortable.
