Missing a Tooth? Cosmetic Dentistry in Reno

Have you lost teeth? Missing teeth are more than a cosmetic problem; they can pose a long-term threat to your overall health. If you’ve lost any teeth, don’t despair: cosmetic dentistry can provide a permanent, and nearly perfect, solution.

Dental Implants
Dental implants not only restore your smile; they can save the integrity of your jaw. When you lose a tooth, bone loss is inevitable because the tooth’s root is no longer there to stimulate and stabilize the jaw bone. An implant is a titanium post that is attached to the jaw. It bonds to the bone and provides the same benefit as the natural root.

There are three parts to a dental implant: the artificial root, the connecting abutment, and the final crown or denture. An implant is often the optimal restoration as it offers beauty, strength, natural function, and protection from bone recession that often take places at the site of a missing tooth.

Dental Veneers
If you aren’t missing any teeth, but are not comfortable with them, porcelain veneers might be your answer. They offer an economical approach to cosmetic issues like uneven color, size, or shape. They are very thin shells bonded to the front of the teeth. They upgrade unsightly, but structurally sound teeth.

Call The Reno Dentist to schedule a consultation, and see what cosmetic dentistry can do. We’ll develop a customized treatment plan and a schedule for completing the work.

A Facelift For Teeth? Porcelain Veneers in Reno

porcelain veneers price Sparks

This article focuses on an effective and versatile cosmetic dental procedure, available from the Reno Dentist: veneers.

Porcelain veneers are individual covers for the front part of teeth. They’re an extraordinary way to correct a myriad of tooth imperfections, such as chips, stains, yellowing, unattractive shape or minimal misalignment.

Have you ever thought about a minimally-invasive “facelift” for a tooth? Veneers may be your solution! Durable, 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 upgrade, and their overall condition. Dr. Shane Sykes, DDS, will advise you on the most effective strategy.

The thickness, color, alignment, and shape of your teeth influence the final product 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 made at the same time.

The first step in the veneer process is to make a model of your teeth to work from. After that, a dental technician uses the model to create the veneers to the precise size, shape, color, and extent of translucency. Experienced cosmetic dentists and dental technicians elevate the level of artistry in this. It’s a painstaking process.

Many patients wonder if veneers are as durable as their natural teeth. Though the veneer tooth-prep process weakens the tooth to a very tiny degree, with proper care, veneers can last up to 15 years. Dr. Sykes will advise you in detail on proper care of porcelain veneers.

If you are looking for a dentist with an artistic eye for impeccable porcelain veneers, give The Reno Dentist a call. In addition to cosmetic dentistry, we provide general and family dentistry. Call for an appointment today.

Crowning Achievements: Restorative Dentistry in Reno

dental crowns Sparks

Today’s Reno Dentist blog post looks at one of the miracles of modern dentistry: restorative dentistry.

Let’s pretend you are a biomedical engineer working in the field of dentistry before the inception of dental restorations. The men and women of your generation who have missing or damaged teeth want to repair or replace them with a man-made substitute. You have been hired to find that substitute to make fillings, crowns, and dental bridges.

Consider the physical and chemical requirements of this incredible item. It must sustain forces of 162 pounds per square inch, hundreds of times a day, day after day, year after year. It must be resistant to cracking and chipping. Moreover it must not damage the enamel on opposing teeth. This material must also maintain its size and shape and be resistant to shrinking.

It must be bondable to living tooth structure as well as other materials necessary for specific appliances. It must be compatible with the soft tissues in the mouth as well as tooth enamel, dentin, and bone. It can’t generate allergic reactions in the wearers. It must be corrosion-resistant to saliva, foods, and beverages. It must resist infection regardless of ever-present bacteria in the mouth. And it can’t contain toxic chemicals that could be absorbed into the bloodstream.

And we haven’t even mentioned the aesthetic properties. Ideally, this incredible material would look identical to genuine teeth in color, opacity, and translucence.

Of course, we know that such a substance exists because dental restorations have been around for a long time. Currently, there are numerous materials used alone or in combination including porcelain, ceramic, and metals such as gold and silver amalgam. Though the metals are immensely strong and malleable, they don’t meet some patient’s aesthetic requirements and are used mainly for back teeth.

Dental porcelain can be shaped to closely resemble the appearance of natural tooth enamel, and is strong and resilient. It is excellent for dental crowns, and is used in porcelain veneers.

The Reno Dentist offers restorative and cosmetic dentistry, as well as general and family dentistry. We are committed to high standards of excellence, and to restoring and enhancing each patient’s smile.

What Can Veneers Do For Sparks Smiles?

porcelain veneers cost Sparks

Hello, and welcome to our The Reno Dentist cosmetic dentistry blog. Today we are taking the time to answer a common question that many dental patients have. The question is, “What exactly are veneers and how are they used in cosmetic dentistry?”

Veneers are thin shells made from durable, translucent porcelain or composite resin. They are custom-made for each patient and are used to improve the appearance of teeth. Unlike a dental crown which covers the entire visible portion of a tooth, a veneer covers just the front part of the tooth. They are commonly used to correct teeth that have been chipped, stained, decayed, or that are slightly crooked.

If you visit your dentist for veneers, he or she will first make a model of your teeth. Next, a dental technician will use the model to create the veneers, so you can be sure of a custom fit.

Since a small portion of the enamel on the tooth has to be removed so the veneer can be placed, this process is usually irreversible.

I hope that this blog entry has helped you to understand a little more about veneers and how they can help you to improve your smile. The Reno Dentist offers all the services you need to create your very best smile. Ask us about gum contouring, smile redesigns, teeth whitening, dental implants, and invisible braces.

If you are looking for a dentist with proficiency creating beautiful porcelain veneers, give The Reno Dentist a call. My name is Dr. Shane Sykes and I have been practicing dentistry since 2011.

Please call 775-525-5692 and a member of our knowledgeable staff can schedule an appointment for you and answer any questions you have about cosmetic dentistry.

How Do Veneers Create Stunning Smiles In Sparks?

Veneers Create Stunning Smiles in Sparks Veneers have a multitude of applications in cosmetic dentistry. With veneers, you can transform your smile without significant restorative dental work.

Is your tooth enamel worn and thin? Tooth-colored porcelain veneers have the brilliance and translucency of healthy tooth enamel. Many Sparks dental patients have received veneers to cover worn enamel. Some have said they look twenty years younger!

Have your teeth developed uneven edges? Tooth grinding, natural wear and other factors can roughen tooth edges. Veneers are a minimally invasive correction for uneven tooth edges.

Do you have chips or cracks in your teeth? If your teeth are otherwise healthy, veneers provide a flawless tooth surface. Are your teeth yellow or gray? Veneers can fix that, too. Veneers can be fabricated in any shade to perk up your smile while still blending naturally with your other teeth and skin tones.

Porcelain veneers are paper-thin, tooth-shaped covers that are affixed to the front of teeth. Traditional veneers required the removal of a thin layer of tooth structure. Prepless veneers are applied to unaltered teeth.

Veneers are strong, natural looking, and one of the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedures in Virginia City and Carson City. Of course, a tooth with extensive damage may need a dental crown.

At The Reno Dentist, we would be happy to show you what veneers can do for you. The Reno Dentist is located at 855 W Seventh St Ste 200 in Reno. We provide premium dental care for many of your friends and neighbors in the greater Sparks area. Our phone number is 775-525-5692.

Celebrity Smiles in Reno

Celebrity Smiles in Reno - Maybe Porcelain Veneers Are What You Need How do celebrities obtain brilliant white smiles always ready for the red carpet or a close-up? Do they avoid coffee? Not likely. Every star-watching magazine is full of pictures of famous people holding Starbucks cups. Do they avoid tobacco? Some probably do, but many actors and fashion models with dazzling white smiles are smokers.

Very few people (famous and non-famous alike) with perfect teeth were born with them. (…Sure, no one is born with teeth, but you know what I mean.) Celebrities have perfect smiles because they have undergone cosmetic dentistry.

Guess what? You can also have a smile like a supermodel or television news anchor because Dr. Shane Sykes at The Reno Dentist has as much experience and training in advanced cosmetic dentistry as any Hollywood cosmetic dentist.

Dr. Sykes has been providing smile makeovers for Reno and Carson City dental clients since 2011. Tooth whitening is the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedure in Spanish Springs. Tooth bleaching quickly perks up your teeth and makes you feel like smiling all the time!

Porcelain veneers are used often in Virginia City cosmetic dental offices because they correct myriad problems. Veneers remedy misshapen teeth, cracks and chips, and discolored teeth. Teeth that have been worn down extensively can also be repaired with veneers. Preparing a tooth for a porcelain veneer is minimally invasive. The latest veneers do not require the removal of healthy enamel. Another plus: veneers are usually less expensive than complete crowns!

Tooth bleaching and veneers are just two of the many cosmetic dental procedures performed at The Reno Dentist. Schedule a Reno cosmetic dental consultation today by calling 775-525-5692. At our office, you will always receive VIP treatment, without the annoying paparazzi!

We look forward to helping you achieve a celebrity smile.

Dental Crown Or Porcelain Veneer?

Reno: Dental Crown Or Porcelain Veneer? Reno cosmetic dentistry offers multiple procedures for improving smiles. Two of the most popular procedures in the Sparks area are dental crowns and porcelain veneers.

A dental crown covers the entire portion of the tooth that is above the gumline. A veneer is a wafer-thin, covering for just the front of a tooth. Veneers are made with several layers of ceramic laminate. Crowns can be made of all porcelain (ceramic), porcelain fused to metal, or gold. Both crowns and veneers are cemented in place. Crowns and veneers are durable and can last many years, though they are not stronger than natural enamel.

Both of these procedures improve the tooth aesthetically, but porcelain crowns are usually a better solution for a tooth that has been compromised by decay, damage, or a root canal.Veneers can perfect the shape of a tooth, repair a minor crack, cover stains, or straighten the appearance of teeth that are slightly misaligned. It takes a team of experienced Nevada dental professionals to create durable, natural-looking and perfectly functioning crowns and veneers. Your Sparks cosmetic dentist must prep the tooth, create a precision mold, and communicate to the lab technician exactly what is needed.

The role of the Reno dental lab technician is equally important. He/she must meet the precise standards necessary for successful restorations: the perfect shape, the perfect size, color that blends seamlessly with surrounding teeth, and the proper placement in the mouth. The team at The Reno Dentist provides the highest quality cosmetic dental services and restorations.

I am Shane Sykes of The Reno Dentist. If you would like more information about crowns, veneers, and additional cosmetic dental procedures, I invite you to come in for a no-pressure cosmetic dental consultation. I can help you achieve a smile that is both healthy and stunning. Call 775-525-5692 today!
