Despite our best efforts to care for our teeth, many of us are unhappy with our smile. Teeth can easily become damaged or discolored as a result of aging or injury. In severe cases, we may even have a mouth with gaps from missing teeth. At ourLas Vegas cosmetic dentistry practice, Jason L. Downey, DDS Dentistry, Dr. Jason L. Downey and his team offer treatment for an array of oral health problems. These treatments can be combined to offer our Las Vegas patients complete smile makeovers.
Dental bonding is a non-invasive procedure that is used to treat minor cosmetic flaws such as discoloration, cracks, chips, and gaps between the teeth. During this procedure a tooth-colored bonding material is applied to affected areas of the mouth. This material is shaped and smoothed and then hardened into place with an ultra-violet light. Dental bonding is a simple, inexpensive way to give your smile a makeover.
One of the most popular treatments for our patients inLas Vegas, porcelain veneers are cosmetic dental fabrications that are applied to the front of your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers can correct teeth that are discolored, cracked, or misshapen. In addition, the can make crooked teeth appear more uniform and close small gaps between the teeth. Patients are happy to learn of this “quick fix” for many common dental problems. .
Porcelain Dental Crowns
Porcelain dental crowns fit over a damaged tooth to restore its function and structure. A dental crown is commonly used for teeth that have been injured or are damaged from severe tooth decay. A porcelain dental crown is made of tooth colored materials and can improve the appearance of your smile, in addition to its health.
Dental implants are recommended for patients who are missing teeth. Dental implants are placed within the jawbone and cannot actually be seen. In order to complete treatment, dental crowns, permanent dentures, or dental bridges will be attached to the dental implants to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are a popular treatment because they fit comfortably and are easy to maintain.
Teeth that are crooked or misaligned can have a negative effect on both the health and appearance of the smile. Many people are hesitant to seek treatment because they do not want to face a year or more of wearing traditional metal braces. At our practice, we offer Invisalign®as a more discreet treatment option. This system uses a series of virtually invisible aligner trays to correct your bite. As the treatment progresses, you will use different trays until your teeth are properly aligned. Invisalign® is a more comfortable treatment option that can give you the straight, healthy smile you desire.
