David Wilhelm, DDS, is a board-certified cosmetic dentist with more than 35 years of experience. At Newport Dental Arts, Dr. Wilhelm provides exceptional dental care to the community of Newport Beach, California. He focuses on delivering high-quality treatment in a relaxing, comfortable environment.

Dr. Wilhelm graduated from the University of Pacific School Dentistry in San Francisco, California, before completing his cosmetic dentistry training. He went on to obtain a fellowship certification and associate fellowship certification from the World Clinical Laser Institute. His training gave Dr. Wilhelm the tools to perform Biolase® laser treatments with extreme precision.

With laser dentistry, Dr. Wilhelm can perform a number of dental procedures with minimal discomfort, pain, and a shorter recovery period. Teeth whitening, gum reshaping, and tooth decay removal are just a few treatments Dr. Wilhelm can perform with the Biolase laser.

Along with laser dentistry, Dr. Wilhelm specializes in placing state-of-the-art porcelain veneers, dental implants, and same-day crowns. He also offers Invisalign® for individuals who want to straighten their teeth and correct bite problems without the inconvenience of traditional metal braces.

Providing the comforts of home is part of the foundation of Dr. Wilhelm’s practice. He stocks his office with fresh-baked cookies and coffee and invests in high-end massage chairs for his patients. He also uses sterilized water when treating his patients to minimize the risk of bacteria.
