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.

Let’s Talk About It

cosmetic dental Las Vegas

At Providence Dental in Las Vegas, we’re enthusiastic about beautifying smiles with cosmetic dentistry. Few physical improvements have such a meaningful influence on self-esteem and self-confidence as a smile makeover. Excellent oral health and a pleasing smile contribute to overall physical health and a high quality of life.

If you have ever wondered how cosmetic dentistry could change your life, we invite you to schedule a consultation so we can talk about it. We’re sure that the initial consultation is the most crucial part of any treatment plan. During your no-pressure smile makeover consultation we will consider the following issues:

  • Your goals for how you want your smile to look and feel after the makeover.
  • The status of your oral health.
  • The individual characteristics of your teeth and gums that you wish to fix.
  • Which distinct treatments are required.
  • A detailed explanation of each necessary procedure (e.g. porcelain veneers, dental crowns, inlays/onlays, gum contouring, crown lengthening, tooth implants, braces, or teeth whitening).
  • You can see before and after pictures of smile transformation patients.
  • Your options for how to schedule the procedures (all at once or over time).
  • Information about sleep dentistry.
  • Answers to any questions or concerns.
  • Cosmetic dentistry costs and financing options.

Your remarkable smile begins with an exam and consultation. To find out more about cosmetic dentistry at Providence Dental in Las Vegas, give us a call. Our services also include orthodontics.

Creating Memorable Smiles At Providence Dental

Creating Memorable Smiles at Providence DentalA smile takes but a moment, but the memory of it lasts forever. You can make your smile memorable and beautiful with cosmetic dentistry from Providence Dental in North Las Vegas.

Providence Dental cosmetic dentists in Las Vegas are knowledgeable about the processes used to fabricate crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays, braces and dental implants. Advances in ceramic and composite materials have boosted the popularity of Las Vegas cosmetic dentistry but these miracle materials are worthless without a skilled cosmetic dentist to incorporate them into a healthy and beautiful smile.

When designing a dental treatment plan for a patient, the patient’s goals and expectations are discussed. The most skillful cosmetic dentists consider the shape, alignment, color and condition of the teeth. The Nevada cosmetic dental patient’s age, health condition and lifestyle also influence the plan.

If you want to learn about what cosmetic dentistry can do for your smile, call us at Providence Dental. We also provide family dentistry. 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. 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.

Why a Water Flosser Might be a Good Idea

Las Vegas should I use waterpik?

Today, we’re discussing the water flosser, also known as interdental cleaner, interdental irrigator, or water jet, a tool favored by the dentist at Providence Dental.

The first water-shooting device for cleaning between teeth was created in the early 1960’s by Colorado dentist Dr. Gerald Moyer and John Mattingly, a hydraulics engineer. The instrument is now known by the brand name Waterpik, though many people use the term generically. Since its conception, numerous other companies have entered the market with similar products. (Note: Providence Dental does not necessarily endorse any particular brand.)

A water irrigation gadget oscillates a stream of water through a small, targeted tube to shoot out particles of food and plaque from around and between teeth. To use it, you place the tube into your mouth, turn it on, and then lean over the sink with your mouth slightly open to let the water dribble out as you direct the stream of shooting water around the gumline, pausing momentarily at each gap between adjacent teeth.

There have been over 65 studies that have substantiated the safety and efficacy of water flossing for calculus reduction, plaque biofilm removal, bleeding reduction, inflammation reduction, and gingivitis care.

Should I Use a Water Flosser?
If you don’t floss at all, absolutely. If you have periodontitis, maybe. It may also help you keep your teeth and gums healthy if you have orthodontia.

First, communicate with us to receive an oral care treatment plan that factors in your tooth and gum health, physical dexterity, and lifestyle. The following elements may impact whether or not we advise you to use an interdental irrigation device.

  • Braces or other orthodontic appliances
  • A physical impairment that reduces ability to brush and/or floss
  • Periodontal disease
  • Gums that bleed when flossing
  • Bleeding around dental implants when flossing
  • Aversion to flossing
  • Sensitive teeth

The team at Providence Dental in Las Vegas would love to help you learn the best suited processes for keeping your gums pink and healthy and firmly attached to cavity-free teeth. We provide family and cosmetic dentistry. Make an appointment with us today.
