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. We consider the shape, alignment, color and condition of the teeth. In order to create a balanced look, the facial shape and coloring is taken into account. 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.

Lasting a Lifetime: Dentistry for Children in Providence NV

Teeth are meant to last a lifetime, which is why early dental care is so important. Providence Dental in Las Vegas is committed to providing excellent dentistry for children.

A big part of keeping teeth and gums healthy is daily care. That means teaching your youngsters good brushing and flossing habits. It also means taking them to the dentist for a checkup and cleaning every six months. The American Dental Association recommends bringing children in for their first visit within six months of their first tooth coming in, and no later than their first birthday.

Keeping teeth and gums healthy also means having a balanced diet that is low in sugar. More and more children are showing signs of early tooth decay. It has even been called the most common chronic childhood disease. By minimizing sweets and establishing a good dental health routine, they can be limited.

A good tool for protecting teeth is dental sealants. It’s a thin protective layer of plastic material applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, where tooth decay is most prevalent. Along with brushing and flossing, sealants go a long way toward preventing cavities.

Early dental care is vital. The children’s dentistry provided by Providence Dental in Las Vegas  helps to ensure your youngster’s teeth and gums will stay healthy throughout their lives. We also provide orthodontics to patients of all ages, plus family and cosmetic dentistry. Make an appointment with us today.

The Cure, Not the Cause: Root Canals

Root canals have a bad reputation. Just hearing the words make a lot of people uneasy, because they’re associated with pain. But at Providence Dental in Las Vegas, we stress that root canals do the opposite: they don’t cause pain, they relieve it.

A root canal usually becomes necessary when a tooth is infected or badly damaged. Formally known as endodontic treatment, root canals involve cleaning the inside of the tooth by removing bacteria, soft tissue (called pulp), decayed nerve tissue, and any debris. When that’s finished, the tooth is sealed and a crown is placed over it.

Root canals are done on teeth that are very sick, and if they aren’t performed, the tooth will probably die. Even more ominous are the blood-borne infections that spread through the body because of the infected tooth.

The tip-off that something is going on with one of your teeth may be as ordinary as a toothache. But that ache is telling you something, so if you have a toothache don’t ignore it. Schedule an appointment with us right away. Remember, root canals are nothing to fear.

In addition to root canals, Providence Dental in Las Vegas provides family dentistry, pediatric dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry. Call our office today to schedule an appointment.

Six Month Checkups: Dental Health in Las Vegas

Have you scheduled your next cleaning and checkup? As a matter of dental health, you should see us at Providence Dental in Las Vegas every six months to ensure your teeth and gums are in good shape.

No one really looks forward to going to the dentist. We get that. (What they look forward to is getting it over with.) But we also know that taking good care of your teeth is one the best things you can do. Not only is it ideal to have healthy teeth and gums, but there is a direct correlation between your dental health and your overall health.

Here are four very good reasons why you should see us every six months:

  • Plaque and tartar. We’ll give you a thorough, professional teeth cleaning. The simple fact is that your toothbrush and dental floss can’t do it all, even with the most committed routine. Keeping your teeth clean of plaque and tarter puts you on the road to dental health.
  • X-rays. The dental x-rays we take allow us to spots potential problems we can’t see with a simple visual inspection. Identifying them early is the best way to treat them.
  • Oral cancer. We perform oral cancer screenings. Again, identifying this early will lead to the best outcome.
  • Gum disease. Gum disease is preventable, which is one of the reasons why your home dental care routine is so important. Checking your gums in our office every six months is the best way to catch problems early.

Notice the common theme in these four points? Prevention. When it comes to your dental health, prevention is the key.

At Providence Dental in Las Vegas, we advise all our patients to schedule their next six month cleaning and checkup, even as they leave our office after the last one. We provide family and pediatric dentistry, as well as popular cosmetic dentistry treatments like teeth whitening. Make an appointment with us today.

Amazing Dental Implants in Providence NV

Cosmetic Dentistry

Dental implants are the best permanent tooth replacement option available in Providence NV and the surrounding community.

It hasn’t always been that way, but the technology has greatly improved in the last few decades. What once sounded futuristic is considered mainstream dentistry.

A dental implant is a metal rod (usually titanium) implanted into the patient’s jaw. A crown and supporting structure are securely and permanently attached to the rod. Titanium is very strong and extremely well tolerated by the human body. There are very few instances of rejection.

Dental implants are a long-term solution to tooth loss. Are you a good candidate for tooth implant surgery?

Age is rarely a factor in whether a patient is a viable candidate for a dental implant. But because it is anchored to the jaw bone, it is essential that you have enough healthy bone at the implant site.

There are a few medical issues that may come into play. These include diabetes, osteoporosis, radiation therapy for cancer, parathyroid disorders, bone disorders and leukemia. The presence of one or more of these conditions does not necessarily rule you out as an implant candidate. We’ll discuss all relevant issues during your implant consultation.

Call Providence Dental in Las Vegas NV to set up an implant consultation. We also provide cosmetic dentistry, as well as family dentistry, including pediatric dental services.

Into The Thick Of It, The Skinny On Toothpaste

Centennial Hills cosmetic dental and tooth implants

In this post, the team at Providence Dental in Las Vegas takes aim at some common questions about toothpaste, and dental health.

What’s with the strong minty flavors?

Minty flavorants are used to encourage continued use of the paste and to freshen breath. However, powerful toothpaste alone is not designed to cure halitosis (bad breath) for people affected. While unflavored toothpastes exist, the world has also seen such flavors as peanut butter, iced tea, and ginger. To treat halitosis it is best to brush bacteria from far back on the tongue. Removing the source is essential and more effective than covering it up with minty flavorings.

What is Fluoride’s place in a toothpaste?

Fluoride occurs in small amounts in plants, animals, and some natural water sources. It is championed by health-conscious people for preventing tooth decay and controlling gingivitis. Fluoride-containing compounds are included in many toothpastes to add another important dimension to the oral hygiene regimen for preventing decay.

How are toothpaste and flossing related?

Flossing regularly in conjunction with toothbrushing helps with avert bacterial growth, tooth decay, and plaque build-up by simply removing chunks of food or substances that could break down the tooth.

Should you floss before or after brushing? It really doesn’t matter.

Finally, what about the relationship between toothpaste and mouthwash?

The use of mouthwash cannot replace regular brushing and flossing. Mouthwash (or fluoride rinse) simply adds another effective layer of defense against bacterial growth in the mouth.

Providence Dental in Las Vegas is your go-to source for dental health matters in Providence NV. We offer family and cosmetic dentistry, pediatric dentistry, and treat conditions like gum disease. Make an appointment with us today.

Protect Las Vegas Kids’ Teeth With Custom Mouthguards

Protect Las Vegas Kids

At Providence Dental we see many Las Vegas children and teens with serious mouth and tooth injuries that could have been prevented had they been wearing a mouthguard. When a tooth is knocked out or broken, speaking, eating, and smiling can become very difficult.

I am Steven Do and I recommend that Las Vegas parents encourage their children to wear mouthguards when participating in team sports, skateboarding, skiing, and ice skating. Ask us about custom mouthguards that will fit your child perfectly and offer excellent protection. Stock mouthguards found at most Las Vegas sporting goods stores are also an option, they just might not fit as well.

If you or your child is in need of restorative dentistry due to an injury or an accident, my staff and I at Providence Dental offer many restorative procedures.

Cosmetic bonding is also an option for a chipped or cracked tooth. A composite material is matched to your tooth color and then sculpted around your existing tooth to repair the crack or chip. This procedure is less expensive than veneers and gives beautiful results.

If a crown or dental implant is required to repair your tooth, my staff and I at Providence Dental will provide quality crowns made from high-strength ceramic or porcelain with beautiful shape, color, and translucency.

Providence Dental has been offering family and pediatric dentistry to the people of Nevada since 2016. My staff and I would love to serve you and your family. We invite you to contact us today to schedule a consultation.
