Sparkling Smiles At Providence Dental

affordable teeth whitening Las Vegas

This post from Providence Dental in North Las Vegas focuses on teeth whitening.

Unfortunately our teeth lose their luster as we grow older, even with regular brushing. Tooth whitening products like strips, whitening mouthwashes, and toothpastes can lighten stains slightly, but for a truly stunning smile, professional whitening is the best solution.

If you have existing dental work such as porcelain crowns, dental bonding, or veneers, the whitening process can be trickier, but not impossible. Teeth whitening will not lighten the stains on your restorations and your whitened natural teeth will make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Providence Dental, we can upgrade your dull restorations including veneers, crowns or bondings.

In-office teeth whitening takes about an hour and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. Professional take-home whitening kits are also available at Providence Dental and can produce excellent results over time.

Teeth whitening is just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures available at Providence Dental in North Las Vegas. We also offer orthodontics. Call our office to schedule an appointment today.

The Providence Dental Guide To Veneers

porcelain veneers cost Las Vegas

It’s easy to see why smile makeover patients at Providence Dental in North Las Vegas love porcelain veneers. They correct a multitude of cosmetic flaws and deliver dazzling results for my Las Vegas area patients.

A porcelain veneer is an extremely thin shell (about .5mm or 1/64 inch) that is permanently attached to the front of a tooth. They are custom made for each patient. Veneers cover chips, cracks, and stains. They can also improve the shape, size or length of a tooth.

While preparing a tooth for a veneer is less invasive than preparing a tooth for a crown, it is not a reversible procedure. A microscopically small amount of enamel must be removed to make room for the veneer. Thus, the tooth can never be restored to its original condition.

When performing the multi-step veneer procedure, the dentist must consider the surrounding teeth, the patient’s bite, the gums, the health of the affected teeth, and the patient’s goals and expectations. Most smiles contain varying shades of tooth enamel – sometimes a considerable range – further complicating the color selection process.

The dentist must also work closely with the dental lab technician who fabricates the veneers. The lab technician’s skill level and quality of materials is just as critical as the expertise of the cosmetic dentist.

Porcelain veneers from Providence Dental in North Las Vegas are one of the fastest and easiest ways to transform your smile. It is just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer. Call us to schedule an appointment today.

You Know It When You See It

top cosmetic dentist Las Vegas

You may not be able to express why all the elements blend in perfect harmony, but you know it when you see it. We’re talking about a beautiful smile, like what we create with cosmetic dentistry at Providence Dental in Las Vegas.

You may be surprised at how many components we consider when planning for a smile makeover. Here are a few of the most obvious ones:

  • Tooth Color: shade, brightness, uniformity
  • Tooth alignment: straight or crooked?
  • Tooth size and proportions: are some teeth much larger or smaller than the rest?
  • Tooth spacing: is there crowding or big gaps between teeth?
  • Gumline margins: how much gum shows when you smile?

Here are some other important elements that may be less familiar to the layperson:

  • The portions of the teeth that are visible when the mouth is at rest
  • The relationship of the smile line and the lip line
  • Zenith points: the highest point of the gumline in relation to the center of the tooth
  • Midline placement: the smile should be centered in the middle of the lips, mouth, and face
  • Mesial inclination: the tops of the teeth should angle slightly away from the midline

If crucial design principles are not followed the smile may look off, or the function of the teeth and jaw could be adversely affected. For example, a cosmetic dental smile makeover completed by an inexperienced cosmetic dentist could change the patient’s bite and put unnecessary stress on the restorations.

At Providence Dental in Noth Las Vegas our services include cosmetic dentisry, pediatric dentistry, and orthodontics. Call today to schedule a consultation.

Express Your Personality With A Smile Makeover

Las Vegas lowest price teeth bleaching

What makes up a perfect smile? White teeth? Straight teeth? Teeth with pleasing proportions, relative to one another? At Providence Dental in North Las Vegas, we believe that it’s more than the sum of the parts. Your perfect smile also contains another element: your personality.

What is a smile makeover? It is a combination of procedures that remedy any problems with your existing smile.

Modern cosmetic dentistry offers a multitude of tooth restoration treatments. On the least invasive end, we have dental bonding and inlays/onlays. These can often be completed in just one visit. Porcelain veneers can remedy small imperfections such as chips. A veneer can also correct the shape of a tooth that is misaligned.

If you have teeth that are not structurally sound, you may need a dental crown. The crowns we provide at Providence Dental blend perfectly with your existing teeth. No “chiclet” effect, where the crown sticks out like a sore thumb.

What if you have a missing tooth? Ask us about dental implants. This permanent tooth restoration is actually anchored into the jawbone, offering strength, natural function, and protection from bone recession.

At Providence Dental in North Las Vegas, cosmetic dentistry techniques combine to create perfect smiles in our patients. Other services include family dentistry. Schedule your next appointment today.

Inlays/Onlays: Less Invasive Than Complete Crowns

cosmetic dental Las Vegas

Restorative dentistry has progressed considerably over the years and there are now several effective ways to repair decayed teeth. In this post from Providence Dental in North Las Vegas, we are going to focus on two similar types of restorations: dental inlays and onlays.

Where possible, an inlay or an onlay can be a less-invasive alternative to a complete crown and either one is usually more affordable than a porcelain crown procedure.

Inlays/onlays are “indirect fillings,” meaning that they are produced in a lab and placed whole on the tooth. A traditional “direct filling” is applied to the tooth while the material is malleable and then shaped by the dentist.

An inlay is used to correct the surface of a damaged tooth, often to fill a small cavity or a natural pit that is at risk for decay.

Typically porcelain or composite resin are used for inlays; these materials are strong and look very natural because the color can be matched exactly to the surrounding teeth. An inlay is precisely fitted to your tooth and looks, feels, and functions like the previous tooth.

An onlay covers a larger part of the tooth. Because they cover such a large area of the tooth, they are often referred to as partial crowns. Onlays are generally applied to the biting surface of the tooth. Just like inlays, they are precisely fitted to the damaged part of the tooth. Composite resin and porcelain are also the main materials used to create an onlay.

At Providence Dental in North Las Vegas, our services include family and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Love Your Smile

Love Your Smile in Las Vegas There is nothing like bright white teeth that light up a person’s whole face when they smile and laugh. No one has to settle for dull, yellow teeth. Not when there’s professional teeth whitening at Providence Dental in Las Vegas.

If you have an important upcoming event such as a wedding, party or formal family portrait sitting, teeth whitening will give you extra confidence as you pose for photos (even close-ups).

You have probably seen the porcelain tabs in graduated shades that  dentists use to determine appropriate, yet natural looking, shades for tooth restorations. Our teeth whitening can whiten teeth beyond their natural shade.

There are now shade guides with levels significantly whiter than the guides used in the past. Tooth whitening is not a gimmick; it is safe and very effective. Teeth whitening patients can maintain a white shade that equals the brightness of the ‘tooth’ models you see in dental marketing.

Teeth whitening at Providence Dental in Las Vegas will do wonders for your smile. We also provide pediatric dentistry. Schedule an appointment today.

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.
