What’s On Your Dental Wish List?

What Is On Your Dental Wish List?

How would you like to improve your smile? At The Reno Dentist in Reno NV we use cosmetic dentistry and other procedures to improve smiles every day. If you’re not satisfied with your smile, rest assured there is a procedure for you.

Here is a sampling of what we can do to improve your smile:

  • Teeth whitening. Is there anyone who doesn’t want whiter teeth? Professional teeth whitening surpasses any product you can buy at the store, leaving you with gleaming teeth and a fabulous smile.
  • Porcelain veneers. Medical-grade porcelain are custom-fit to your teeth. They cover chips, cracks, gaps, and other imperfections. They aren’t permanent, but when properly cared for will last about ten to fifteen years.
  • Dental implants. These marvels of modern dentistry are titanium posts inserted into your jaw, where they fuse with the bone. An artificial tooth is mounted onto the post. Implants look and function like natural teeth.
  • Crowns. Crowns are often placed on top of a decayed tooth, or after a root canal or other procedure. They protect and stabilize what is left of the original tooth. They too look and function like a natural tooth.

These and other procedures can restore the appearance and functionality of your teeth.

So: what’s on your dental wish list? At The Reno Dentist in Reno NV we offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry procedures, and have improved the smiles of people from all over Spanish Springs, Virginia City, and Carson City. We also offer general and family dentistry. Call our office to schedule an appointment!

Tooth Whitening: What The ADA Has To Say

Carson City cosmetic smile makeover

When a cosmetic dentistry procedure becomes popular, it’s natural to want to see what all the fuss is about. But at The Reno Dentist in Reno NV we think it’s a good idea to know what the American Dental Association has to say, in particular about procedures such as teeth whitening.

The ADA recommends that patients speak with a dentist before starting any bleaching regimen. An oral examination will help us know if teeth whitening is right for you. This is especially critical when you have dark stains on your teeth, or multiple crowns and/or fillings.

Everyone, it seems, would like to have teeth that are whiter. The good news is that it has never been easier to get them. Just take a look at all the whitening products in any grocery store and you’ll see what we mean. From whitening toothpastes to strips and other products, there is a lot to choose from – but none can match the results you’ll get from professional whitening.

At The Reno Dentist in Reno NV, teeth whitening is just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we use to improve smiles every day. We have improved the smiles of patients throughout Spanish Springs, Virginia City, and Carson City. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

The Reno Dentist: A Reason To Smile

The Reno Dentist Cosmetic Dentistry A Reason To Smile

At The Reno Dentist we continue to achieve fantastic results with our cosmetic dentistry smile makeovers.

There are a lot of folks out there who are not pleased with the appearance of their smiles. Their teeth may have grown a little dull over the years, or there may be gaps between some of them. There may be a chip from a long-ago accident.

The good news is that you don’t have to live with any of these imperfections if you don’t want to. Cosmetic dentistry offers a range of procedures that can improve any smile.

To name just a few:

  • Dental implants can replace missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function like the real thing. They are one of the wonders of modern dentistry.
  • Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade porcelain that are affixed to the front of your teeth. They are great for covering chips and cracks that detract from your smile.
  • Clear braces from Invisalign can straighten your teeth without the bother of metal brackets. They’re worn like an athlete’s mouth guard, can be removed for meals, and are so subtle that people standing just a few feet away might not realize you’re wearing them.

Cosmetic dentistry from The Reno Dentist can transform any smile! People from Spanish Springs, Virginia City, and Carson City also come to our practice for general and family dentistry, and so much more. Call us to schedule an appointment today!

Just Like Natural Teeth (Naturally Perfect Teeth, That Is!)

porcelain veneers Reno

Is your smile beginning to look a little dull? Has its luster faded over the years? Maybe you’ve got a chipped tooth – or maybe even a couple. You don’t have to live with these imperfections if you don’t want to. At The Reno Dentist, porcelain veneers can mask these and other dental flaws, leaving you with a magnificent smile.

Porcelain veneers are custom-fitted medical-grade porcelain shells that are permanently attached to the surface of the teeth that need correcting. They look just like natural teeth – perfectly natural teeth, that is.

Veneers are one of the most popular options available from modern cosmetic dentistry. They are so effective they’ve even been called “instant orthodontics.” Technically, of course, they are not orthodotnics – but they’re very strong, and can work wonders on any smile.

One thing to remember: a thin layer of enamel must be removed from the front of each tooth being covered with a veneer, in order for them to properly adhere. Once they’re cemented in place, they are permanent. But once they are in place, you’ll have the best-looking teeth of anyone you know.

To find out more about porcelain veneers, schedule an appointment with The Reno Dentist. People from Spanish Springs, Virginia City, and Carson City come to us for veneers and other cosmetic dentistry. Call our office today!

A Noteworthy Dental Experience

At The Reno Dentist in Reno NV, we make every checkup a noteworthy experience with our attention to detail, and committment to each patient’s dental health.

Good dental health means having healthy teeth and gums. Maintaining it is something that you have to work at every day. It can be a real balancing act: using the right oral care products, your personal oral care habits, and regular checkups.

Your dental health strategy should include:

  • Daily brushing and flossing. You should brush and floss twice a day. Just before bedtime is especially important, because it cleans out the germs and plaque that build up during the course of the day.
  • Proper brushing. It’s important not only to brush, but to brush properly. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush in a gentle, circular motion along the gum line. Take your time; a minimum of two minutes is recommended. Don’t forget to brush your tongue!
  • Using fluoridated toothpaste. There is a myriad of choices when it comes to toothpaste. Whether you prefer mint flavored or bubble gum, fluoride is the most important consideration. It is your best defense against cavities.
  • Limiting sugary and acidic foods. Acidic fruits, teas, and coffee contributes to enamel erosion. Sugar converts into acid when it’s in your mouth. You don’t have to avoid these foods entirely, but choose carefully and minimize.
  • Seeing us twice a year. You saw this one coming, right? Your daily dental health care habits are essential, but so is the attention and care of a dentist. A professional teeth cleaning alone is worth the trip, but we can also identify issues before they become serious, and treat them.

At The Reno Dentist in Reno NV, we want every checkup to be a noteworthy experience. People from Spanish Springs, Virginia City, and Carson City come to us for general and family dentistry, and complete cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next checkup today!

Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?

porcelain veneers cost Sparks

Are yellowing teeth getting you down? If so, you are not alone! Everyone, it seems, would like to have whiter teeth and a better smile. Teeth whitening at The Reno Dentist in Reno NV may be just what what you need.

Of course, there are plenty of over-the-counter products you might want to try. Any grocery store will have plenty of options in the dental care aisle: every major brand of toothpaste, it seems, offers a whitening version.

Whitening toothpastes work by adding chemical agents that gently polish and whiten teeth. They do a fairly good job, and the abrasives in them are no harder on tooth enamel than ordinary toothpastes.  However, these products can only remove stains that are on the surface. This generally results in whitening by roughly one shade.

Professional whitening, on the other hand, can whiten your teeth up to eight shades. our in-office version whitening can brighten your smile in just one visit!

Professional teeth whitening at The Reno Dentist in Reno NV is just one of our cosmetic dentistry options. People throughout Spanish Springs, Virginia City, and Carson City trust us with their smiles. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

Do You Love Your Smile?

Sparks Cosmetic Dentistry

The people who are happiest with their smiles have healthy, straight teeth that sparkle when they laugh. If nature didn’t bless you with attractive teeth, you are not alone. Most perfect smiles you see were not always that way: they are the result of cosmetic dentistry, like what we provide at The Reno Dentist.

Two common smile issues are yellow enamel and chipped teeth.

Discolored Teeth
Few of us are blessed with pearly white smiles that stay that way forever. Even with consistent brushing, flossing and dental cleanings,  teeth darken as we age.

That explains the popularity of teeth whitening. Can you picture yourself with a celebrity-caliber smile? Teeth whitening makes it possible!

Damaged Teeth
Our teeth work hard for us day after day, year after year. Sometimes they get chipped or cracked in the process. If you would like to fix your tooth flaws, porcelain veneers and cosmetic bonding have been used with great results for many years.

At The Reno Dentist, we improve smiles with cosmetic dentistry every day. People from Spanish Springs, Virginia City, and Carson City also come to us for restorative dentistry and other services. Schedule your next checkup today!

Think Twice Before Using Mail-Order Aligners

smile direct aligners Reno

At The Reno Dentist, we get it. It sounds simple. It sounds economical. It sounds convenient.

You order a kit online. It is delivered to your door. You take an impression of your teeth in the comfort of your home. Or you stop by the clinic and have the impression taken. The company sends you clear aligners to adjust your teeth. And it costs a lot less than orthodontist-supervised Invisalign!

In 2013, SmileDirect Club became the first company to offer self-directed teeth straightening. The fact that they are being sued by people all over the U.S. should tell you something.

What’s wrong with at-home aligner systems?

The American Dental Association and the American Association of Orthodontists have issued warnings about the hazards of direct-to-consumer orthodontics.

“Orthodontic treatment involves the movement of biological material, which if not done correctly could lead to potentially irreversible and expensive damage such as tooth and gum loss, changed bites, and other issues.” American Association of Orthodontists

Straightening teeth is not a do-it-yourself project. At The Reno Dentist we offer clear braces from Invisalign that deliver the results you seek. People from Spanish Springs, Virginia City, and Carson City trust us with their smiles! They also come to our office for dental implants, and a complete range of dental health services.

What’s New In Dentistry?

Advanced Dentistry in RenoThe world of dentistry continues to advance at a rapid pace. If you have visited The Reno Dentist in Reno NV lately, you have probably noticed some things that make your visit more comfortable, such as the ability to watch TV or listen to music while receiving treatment.

What may not be as obvious are the advances in techniques, tools and materials. We now use digital computer imaging which is safer than traditional x-rays. Dental technicians can store, retrieve and transmit digital images much easier than was possible with traditional x-ray film.

The use of lasers has also changed the face of dentistry. Laser surgery requires less anesthesia, minimizes swelling, and protects surrounding tissue. Sparks family dentists use lasers for detecting and treating cavities and dental technicians use them for the curing of restorative materials.

At The Reno Dentist in Reno NV we strive for excellence in dentistry every day. Patients from Spanish Springs, Virginia City, and Carson City come to our office for general and family dentistry, and complete cosmetic dentistry services. Call to schedule an appointment today!

Spotlight-Ready Smiles From The Reno Dentist In Reno, Nevada

what are dental implants

A mouth full of unattractive teeth can distract from anyone’s appearance. But a spotlight-ready smile, like what you can get with cosmetic dentistry from The Reno Dentist in Reno NV, can bring you increased satisfaction and confidence in your social interactions.

Cosmetic dentistry is that branch of  dental science that creates positive changes to your teeth and your smile. We believe that cosmetic dentistry should enhance the overall dental health of our patients.

Some of the most popular procedures include:

  • Porcelain veneers. Veneers are paper-thin shells of durable material (ceramic, porcelain, or composite resin) bonded to the teeth to provide strength and add beauty to any smile.
  • Dental implants. Implants are titanium posts that are implanted into the jaw, where they act as replacement roots to missing teeth. One implant can support an artificial tooth, while a group can support dentures.
  • Teeth whitening. Who doesn’t want whiter teeth? Professional teeth whitening can brighten your smile far better than any product you’ll find at the store, giving you a brilliant smile.

These are just some of the cosmetic dentistry procedures at The Reno Dentist in Reno NV that transform smiles every day. Patients throughout Spanish Springs, Virginia City, and Carson City also come to us for dental implants, and much more. Schedule your next checkup with us today!
