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.

Dental Sealant Q & A

dental sealants Las Vegas

Dental sealants, available at Providence Dental in North Las Vegas, are one of the most effective ways to protect your teeth. But a lot of our patients aren’t sure exactly what they are, so we’re using this blog post to talk a little about them, and answer the most common questions.

Q. What are dental sealants?
A. Dental sealants are permanent plastic barriers applied to the biting surfaces of teeth. They prevent cavities by filling in the grooves and fissures where food particles are particularly difficult to remove. Most pediatric dentists and family dentists offer sealants to their patients.

A. Do sealants significantly reduce tooth decay?
Q. Yes. Studies show that dental sealants can curtail the risk of decay by 70%!

Q. How are dental sealants applied to the teeth?
A. Your dentist applies the sealant resin as a liquid which quickly hardens and adheres tightly to the pits and grooves. The procedure is speedy, simple and painless.

Q. Which teeth can benefit the most from sealants?
A. Sealants are most commonly applied to the first and second molars because they are at the highest risk for decay.

Q. When should sealants be applied?
A. The best time is early – while the teeth are cavity-free. Your dentist will advise you.

Q. Are sealants just for kids?
A. Not necessarily. Talk to your Las Vegas dentist about whether sealants could benefit you.

Q. Is brushing and flossing still necessary for the teeth with sealants?
A. Yes. Vigilant oral hygiene is still essential to keep teeth and gums healthy. Even the teeth with sealants are at risk for decay along the gumline.

At Providence Dental in North Las Vegas, we offer our patients family and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next checkup and cleaning today.

Ignoring It Won’t Make It Go Away

Ignoring It Won't Make It Go Away

Are you suffering with a toothache, but ignoring the pain? Have you started chewing on one side of your mouth to avoid your sensitive teeth? Have you stopped drinking hot and cold beverages to alleviate the discomfort? If you’re suffering with toothache pain, call us at Providence Dental in North Las Vegas.

Dental pain is like an unpaid speeding ticket: ignoring it won’t make it go away. Yet many of us share that very human tendency to ignore a toothache. Many of us just plain dread seeing the dentist because of fear the treatment will hurt worse than the toothache.

Waiting too long to care for your teeth can cause serious health problems – and not just in your mouth.

The most common cause of a toothache is a cavity. Cavities are easily treatable with fillings. But toothaches may also be caused by problems having nothing to do with teeth, or even with the jaw. Toothache pain can be mimicked by, for example, a sinus infection.

No matter the cause, it’s important to seek help. At Summer Dental in North Las Vegas we offer toothache relief by properly diagnosing the cause and then treating it. We also provide family dentistry, emergency dentistry, and wisdom teeth extraction. Schedule an appointment with us today.

A Toothache The Size Of Las Vegas

Las Vegas Tooth WhiteningThrobbing toothache pain can be absolutely intolerable. At the very least, milder toothache pain can cause you to abstain from certain foods. At Providence Dental in North Las Vegas, we know that severe tooth pain can be totally debilitating, forcing men and women to go to extreme measures to alleviate the pain.

The most prevalent causes of a toothache include infection, decay, injury, or loss of a tooth. Tooth pain can develop after a tooth has been extracted or following oral surgery. We can identify the source of your toothache, and in most cases can provide nearly immediate relief.

Of course, the best way to avoid toothache pain is to visit your dentist frequently, and to care properly for your teeth including a daily regimen of brushing and flossing.

If you are experiencing tooth pain, please call us at Providence Dental in North Las Vegas. Worst case scenario? We offer emergency dental care. We also provide general dentistry. Make an appointment 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.
