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.

The Tea And Teeth Question

What do you call a dentist who doesn’t like tea?
Why, Denis, of course.

Joking aside, a common concern for Carson City patients can be stained teeth. I’m Dr. Shane Sykes of The Reno Dentist. Today, let’s talk a little bit about a common cause of tooth staining: dark beverages including tea.

Over time, tea can stain the plaque that may eventually turn into tartar. Plaque can be brushed and flossed away. Thorough daily rituals of oral cleaning are valuable for this. Tartar (which forms if the plaque remains on the teeth for over 24 hours), on the other hand, will need to be removed in-office during a teeth cleaning appointment. Either way, between cleanings a wise method for avoiding tea staining is to rinse with water after drinking tea or to eat something and then to be sure to brush and floss all surfaces of the teeth at the end of the day.

If the color of your teeth is still unsatisfactory after a professional cleaning, there is always teeth whitening as an option. Our other services include:

Dentures and partial dentures
Invisalign
Root canals
Porcelain veneers
Wisdom teeth extraction

The cost of living is going up in Carson City, Spanish Springs, and Virginia City. Come on in, Sparks, and let us share our competitive pricing, financial options and superb service with you. Cosmetic dentistry may be less costly than you think.

Our specialty is cosmetic dentistry. A popular service in our office is dental implants. We would love to do restorative dentistry if that appeals to you.

Now you know that tea doesn’t have to stain teeth permanently. What’s your next question?

Dental Sealant Q & A

dental sealants Reno

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 Sparks 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 cut down 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, easy 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 Reno 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 vital to keep teeth and gums healthy. Even the teeth with sealants are at risk for decay along the gumline.
