Re-Contour Your Teeth

Re-Contour Your Teeth At Providence Dental

If your crooked, stained teeth keep you from smiling and you feel like there is nothing you can do about it, please give Providence Dental in Las Vegas a call! Cosmetic dentistry procedures and unprecedented materials make it possible to completely revamp and restyle your mouth.

If your teeth are uneven, Providence Dental has several options to correct that. We can re-contour your teeth by removing a small portion of your enamel to change the length or shape of your tooth. If more is required to improve your smile we can offer veneers or bonding.

A veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that is permanently attached to the front of a tooth, correcting cosmetic imperfections. They can last longer than dental bonding and preserve more natural tooth structure than crowns.

Many men and women have teeth that have become darkened by drinking colas, tea, or coffee. If you have stained teeth and dream of having pearly white teeth then check out the many teeth whitening options.

7 Ways Bonding Can Beautify

Las Vegas Cosmetic Dentist

Dental bonding is a popular procedure, but there are many patients who don’t know exactly what it is. In  this Providence Dental dental blog post, we explain seven ways dental bonding is used in cosmetic dentistry.

The dental bonding procedure uses a resin material that is sturdy and tooth-colored. It is applied to the teeth while soft, like putty, and then hardened or set with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.

Dentists will usually consider the option of bonding when 1) decayed, 2) chipped, or 3) cracked teeth need to be repaired.

4) Large spaces between teeth can be filled with bonding material, and 5) roots can be protected by bonding after gums recede.

6) Discolored teeth can also be improved using the bonding process, and, since the material is easily shaped, teeth can be made to 7) look longer or just have the general shape changed. Bonding is often used, along with teeth whitening as part of a total smile makeover.

At Providence Dental in Las Vegas we offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services. We also specialize in pediatric dentistry, and orthodontics. Schedule an appointment with us today.

A Facelift For Your Teeth?

porcelain veneers price Las Vegas

Today’s message from Providence Dental in North Las Vegas focuses on an effective and versatile cosmetic dental procedure—porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are individual covers for the front part of teeth. They are a terrific way to fix a myriad of tooth imperfections, such as chips, stains, yellowing, an unattractive shape or minimal misalignment.

Have you ever wished for a minimally-invasive facelift for a tooth without getting an entire crown? Veneers are your solution! Strong, tooth-colored porcelain laminate is shaped into thin shells and custom-fitted for each patient’s unique set of teeth.

How many veneers should you get? This depends on how many teeth you want to brighten and the overall condition of your teeth. We can counsel you on the most beneficial strategy.

The thickness, enamel color, alignment, and shape of your teeth affect the result as well as whether you have any gum recession. Veneers are matched to your existing teeth so they will blend seamlessly, but if you are planning to treat several teeth, you definitely want to have them fabricated in the same “batch” at the lab.

Porcelain veneers are just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures provided by Providence Dental in North Las Vegas. We also offer orthodontics. Schedule an appointment with us today.

What Does A Missing Tooth Say About You?

Las Vegas Mini-ImplantsAt Providence Dental in Las Vegas, we know that a missing tooth is a big deal. Think about it: when you meet someone who is missing a front tooth, do you wonder if they were in an accident? Do you automatically make assumptions about their income, education and overall physical health?

Though it is extremely unfair, we are often judged (and misjudged) by our appearance. Even if a person is impeccably dressed and groomed, a missing front tooth detracts from the overall pleasing impression.

Here is a personal story from a woman who lost a tooth:

I lost my job and along with it my dental insurance, then a month later, one of my front teeth. It has been very hard to find work…. and I know the missing tooth has cost me several jobs.

Dental implants not only restore missing teeth, they restore self-confidence. Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. Studies have shown that after more than 20 years, the vast majority of dental implants placed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons continue to function at peak performance. If properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime.

Not all cosmetic dentistry is as extreme as teeth implants. There are many minimally-invasive remedies for unattractive smiles.

At Providence Dental, we provide dental implants and many other procedures. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?

porcelain veneers cost Las Vegas

Are yellowing teeth getting you down? If so, you are not alone! Over time, teeth have a way of losing their luster. You can do something about it with professional teeth whitening at Providence Dental in Las Vegas, or you can try using an over-the-counter product.

Because many dental products such as toothpastes and mouthwashes say they can enhance your teeth, it’s natural to look at changing your brand of toothpaste. Whitening toothpastes work by adding chemical agents that can gently polish and whiten teeth. However, these substances can only remove stains that are on the surface of the teeth. This often results in whitening by roughly one shade.

On the other hand, Providence Dental offers rapid in-office teeth whitening procedures that can typically whiten your teeth anywhere from three to eight shades. That is quite a difference!

At Providence Dental in Las Vegas, we offer a fully range of cosmetic dentistry procedures, as well as orthodontics. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Your Smile Says Keep Trying!

gentle dentist Las Vegas

Today’s post is for men and women who are disheartened because they haven’t been successful at making some changes that will benefit their oral health. The Providence Dental dentist in North Las Vegas wants to encourage you to keep trying and assure you that we’re eager to help.

Keep Trying To Floss

Many people are faithful about brushing, and believe that it makes up for lack of flossing. This is a misconception. Flossing is the only way to clean food debris and plaque from the gumline. Failure to floss can lead to periodontal disease which can, in turn, lead to tooth loss.

We urge everyone to make it a habit to floss correctly every day!

Keep Trying to Overcome Dental Anxiety

Skipping dental checkups can have detrimental, and in some cases, irreversible oral health consequences. Severe dental caries or delayed diagnosis of oral cancer are two potential risks. If you are afraid of going to the dentist, you are not alone. Dental anxiety affects millions of Americans.

Fortunately, there are many ways to manage this condition so you can undergo an exam and any needed services. Talk to dentist us if you or a family member suffers from dental anxiety.

Keep Trying to Quit Tobacco

Smoking is just as dangerous for your teeth and gums as it is for other parts of your body. If you’ve tried unsuccessfully to stop the practice, it’s clear that you value your health and want to lower your risk for all the troubles caused or exacerbated by smoking, chewing, or vaping.

Many smokers do not overcome the habit the first time. But there’s hope! According to the CDC, there are now more former smokers than current users. Each of those former smokers was once right where you are. Keep trying!

Sometimes a little help can make all the difference. Providence Dental in North Las Vegas provides family and cosmetic dentistry. Call today to schedule your next appointment.

Cosmetic Dental Artistry

Las Vegas Cosmetic Dental Artistry

North Las Vegas cosmetic dentistry is part science and part art.

In order to achieve an attractive, yet natural looking result, the team at Providence Dental does much more than recommend specific procedures.

The patient’s age, health condition and lifestyle all influence the plan.

At Providence Dental, there is no one-size-fits-all treatment plan.

Our team’s ability has been perfected over several years of creating smile transformations for our Providence and North Las Vegas cosmetic dentistry patients. Even fairly recent cosmetic dental procedures such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers have advanced considerably.

The team at Providence Dental in North Las Vegas would love to perform a personalized cosmetic dentistry makeover for you. When the work has been completed and you are enjoying your new look, it will only be obvious to those who see you all the time. Others will assume you have always been blessed with a naturally beautiful and healthy smile.

Dental Breakthroughs On The Horizon

dental breakthroughs Las Vegas

At Providence Dental, we use the latest validated dental technology to provide our patients with quality general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry. In addition, our dentists keep tabs on the latest research that is propelling the industry forward.

Here are some of the intriguing dental technologies currently being analyzed and tested:

Fill and Heal: Bioactive Glass
A new type of filling created from ‘bioactive glass’ has been shown to increase the life of fillings by restricting secondary decay and replacing lost minerals.

“Bioactive glass, which is a type of crushed glass that is able to interact with the body, has been used in some types of bone healing for decades. This type of glass is only beginning to see use in dentistry, and our research shows it may be very promising for tooth fillings.” – Jamie Kruzic, professor of advanced structural and biomaterials at the Oregon State University College of Engineering

Stem cell regenerative medicine is poised to furnish a multitude of exciting discoveries in dentistry.

A research team from the University of Nottingham and Harvard University is applying stem cell technology to dentistry with the development of stem-cell based biomaterials that regenerate tooth dentin. The objective is to use them in fillings and root canals to save and regenerate tooth structure. The research is in its early stages, but this technology could one day help preserve millions of smiles for individuals worldwide.

3D Printing
3D printing is already being used in some dental offices to fabricate aligners, retainers, drilling guides for implant placement, and extremely accurate models for restorations. As the printers become faster and less pricey, you will be seeing them in more Nevada  dental offices.

Technology has its place, but experience, expertise, and a warm and attentive chairside manner are just as vital. The dentists at Providence Dental invite you to enjoy the difference at our comfortable dental office. We provide many services, including family and pediatric dentistry. Call today to make an appointment.
