Wear A Crown In Sparks

Wear A Crown In Sparks

Some Reno residents who have a weak or broken tooth may want to research dental crowns as a solution to improve their smile and overall oral health. A crown is really a cap or covering that is tooth-shaped and when it is in place, it will cover the portion of the covered tooth that is above the gum line.

Crowns can be made of metals, resin, ceramic, porcelain, or a porcelain-fused-to-metal material. Your Reno area dentist will usually put in a temporary crown while a permanent crown is being created especially for your mouth in a dental laboratory.

Dental crowns have been used successfully in Reno cosmetic dentistry for decades.

Many Spanish Springs, Virginia City, and Carson City dentists use crowns when performing smile makeovers to cover patient’s discolored or poorly shaped teeth. Strong, natural-looking crowns are also used with dental implants.

If you think a dental crown may be right for you, check with your Sparks dentist. Or, if you are searching for quality dental care in the Sparks area, call us here at The Reno Dentist. We are located in Reno and have been serving the greater Reno area since 2011. We are currently accepting new patients at our state-of-the art, yet warm and comfortable dental office.

Call us at 775-322-5016 and our knowledgeable staff can answer any questions you have about teeth whitening in Reno, veneers, enamel shaping, or any other cosmetic dental, general oral health, or dental financing questions.


Dental Patient Education For Virginia City

Virginia City family dentist

Hi. My name is Dr. Shane Sykes. I have enjoyed serving the Reno and Sparks area since 2011. One of the things that I pride myself on is giving my patients the oral health education they need to have a healthy smile.

Here at The Reno Dentist we know that optimal dental health happens at home, so we want you to have all the information you need to form good dental habits, such as brushing and flossing regularly, and to stick with those habits throughout your life.

When my patients are in need of a dental procedure such as a filling or a crown, we take the time to communicate what will happen, why it needs to be done, and how to care for your teeth post-procedure.

In addition to having healthy teeth and gums, I also want my Sparks dental patients to have the beautiful smile they have always wanted. That’s why I also work to make my patients aware of the many effective cosmetic dentistry procedures that are available in and around Reno. Procedures such as teeth whitening and veneers are simple, but can have amazing results.

If you are in the Reno, Spanish Springs, or Sparks area and are looking for a highly skilled dentist with experience as well as superior communication skills, give us a call here at 775-322-5016. We can answer any questions you have about cosmetic dentistry procedures such as dental implants or complete smile makeovers. Some of the most popular procedures done in our office are:

Saving Teeth in Reno

Saving Teeth in Reno with Root Canals When a tooth is threatened by severe decay, periodontal disease, or damage from an injury, a skilled Reno dentist or endodontist must make a judgment call concerning the course of treatment. If the pulp of the tooth is infected or inflamed, a root canal is often the only way to save the tooth.

The Reno Dentist: 775-322-5016

During a root canal procedure (or endodontic treatment) the soft tissue in the root of the tooth is removed. This tissue contains veins, arteries and lymph vessels. Once the roots are cleaned out and widened, they are filled with a special rubber material. The root canal is only the first step in the complete tooth restoration. After the root canal, without a crown, the tooth will become dry and brittle. The final steps are the core build up and crown.

At The Reno Dentist, we fabricate strong, natural-looking crowns that blend perfectly with the surrounding teeth. With proper oral hygiene and regular visits to a Sparks dentist, a tooth with a filled root can often function problem-free for the rest of a patient’s life.

I am Dr. Shane Sykes DMD of The Reno Dentist. I have been practicing dentistry since 2011. During that time I have seen hundreds of teeth saved by this effective dental procedure. Root canal therapy at The Reno Dentist in Reno has a very high success rate.

Because teeth with infected pulp tissue often cause no symptoms, it is important to have regular dental examinations. I can determine which (if any) teeth have infected roots. If the infection in the soft pulp tissue is left untreated, it can progress to a point where the tooth cannot be saved. Is it time for a thorough dental exam? Call our office at 775-322-5016.

Call The Reno Dentist immediately if one of your teeth is screaming for attention!


Tooth Restoration in Reno

Superior Restorative Dentistry For Reno Resdidents At The Reno Dentist in Reno, we use a variety of techniques to restore damaged teeth. Most Sparks dental clients are familiar with fillings. Traditional fillings are also called ‘direct restorations’ because they are applied to the tooth, shaped and polished in one visit.

Another type of filling is called an ‘indirect restorations’ and is fabricated in a Nevada dental lab. There are two types: inlays and onlays.

When a tooth needs more extensive dental restoration, a dental crown is often used. At The Reno Dentist in Reno, we create strong, natural-looking crowns from a variety of materials.

What if the tooth is damaged beyond repair? There are a number of functional replacements for missing teeth. Dentures are not the only option.

Call 775-322-5016 to learn about the restoration options available. We have been improving smiles for Sparks and Carson City patients since 2011.

Whether the damage is caused by decay, injury, bite problems, or natural wear; Shane Sykes DMD will choose the best dental treatment plan for your tooth restoration needs. The Reno Dentist is conveniently located at 855 W Seventh St Ste 200 in Reno. We provide quality dental care for Spanish Springs and Virginia City families.


Cosmetic Dental Solutions in Reno

Cosmetic Dental Solutions in Reno Reno cosmetic dentists use dental crowns to solve a number of dental dilemmas. A dental crown is a strong, natural-looking permanent tooth restoration that covers the top of the damaged tooth.

Sparks family dentists recommend crowns to remedy the following problems:

  • A broken tooth with decay
  • An ill-fitting existing crown
  • A decayed tooth that has lost significant tooth structure
  • A tooth that has had a root canal
  • A tooth that is too small or misshapen
  • A tooth that causes a bite problem

Before your Spanish Springs dentist can attach the crown to your tooth, we must prepare the tooth. Virginia City family dentists often apply a local anesthetic so you won’t feel pain during the prepping. Your dentist will remove decay, if any, and shape the tooth to receive the crown. Then a mold is taken of the prepped tooth and surrounding teeth.

A temporary crown is then placed on the tooth to protect it until you return to your Carson City dentistry office to receive the permanent restoration. The patient needs to be careful while wearing the temporary crown. Vigorous brushing or flossing can displace the crown or damage the exposed soft tissue. The Spanish Springs dental crown patient should also refrain from eating extremely hard foods like nuts or sticky candy.

The mold of your teeth is sent to a Nevada dental lab where your crown is built. Dental crowns are fabricated in three varieties: tooth colored crowns made of resin or porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and solid metal crowns. Each type has its pros and cons. Your Reno cosmetic dentist at The Reno Dentist will choose the best crown material for your particular tooth.

What if you need a permanent dental restoration for both the top and root of your tooth? A dental implant is your answer.

For more information about complete dental restorations and other cosmetic dental solutions, call The Reno Dentist at 775-322-5016 today.


Have A Large Cavity In Your Tooth?

Large Cavity? Spanish Springs Family Dentistry When Dr. Shane Sykes of The Reno Dentist in Reno repairs a tooth that has decay or damage, the procedure chosen often depends on the location of the problem. (We’re talking tooth-specific locale here; it doesn’t matter whether you live in Spanish Springs, Virginia City, or Carson City.) If there is a chip, crack or cavity on the biting surface of a tooth, an onlay or inlay is often used to restore the tooth.

Inlays and onlays are a type of tooth restoration used successfully at The Reno Dentist. They are usually bigger than a conventional filling yet smaller than a complete dental crown. An inlay is used to fill an area inside the cusp tips or bumps of a tooth. An onlay covers an area that includes more than one cusp.

At The Reno Dentist, the inlays and onlays we place for our Spanish Springs and Virginia City clients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Dr. Shane Sykes has the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of cosmetic dentistry to create an exact match.

The Reno Dentist inlays and onlays:

  • Are stain resistant
  • Do not cause tooth sensitivity
  • Are beautifully matched to natural teeth
  • When bonded to the tooth, they strengthen the tooth and prevent further decay or damage

Call 775-322-5016 to book a cosmetic dental consultation today.

We’ll help you keep your smile happy and healthy!


The Reno Dentist: Calming Root Canal Fears

Reno Dentist Calms Root Canal Fears In Reno,  a dentist’s office is sometimes seen as a painful and scary place. The Reno Dentist, located at 855 W Seventh St Ste 200 Reno, NV tries to discourage that image with a knowledgeable staff and qualified dentists. However, endodontic therapy, a dental procedure commonly known as a root canal, still carries a strong association with pain that sometimes keeps people from regularly visiting the dentist and tending optimally to their oral health.

When a tooth becomes badly infected or decayed, a qualified dentist in Reno can clean the inside of the tooth by removing the bacteria, soft tissue (called pulp), decayed nerve tissue, and any debris that may be causing the tooth infection from the inside of the tooth. Your qualified dentist will then seal the tooth to prevent further decay and finish by applying a dental crown or filling. This is the process and purpose of a root canal. The process can be completed, typically, in just a few visits to your family dentistry practice. In many cases, a root canal procedure is a better option than removing the infected tooth since it allows you to keep your natural tooth.

Teeth that are more prone to requiring a root canal procedure in the state of Nevada are cracked or chipped, have received repeated dental procedures, have been damaged by trauma to the face, or are suffering from deep tooth decay. Wearing a mouth guard can help prevent damage sustained to teeth and practicing good oral hygiene habits, such as daily flossing and brushing, coupled with regular dental visits, can reduce the possibility of needing a dental root canal.

Though a root canal can be intimidating or scary, educating yourself and talking to your local cosmetic dentist in the Reno, Nevada area can relieve much of your anxiety. Root canals are often not painful, and for many people the pain of the infection experienced beforehand is worse than any pain that might be experienced during the procedure, and the relief is well worth the trouble.

If you are in the Reno or Sparks NV area, you can give The Reno Dentist a call at 775-322-5016 to see what we can do for your oral health.

We can make you look and feel great.

Same Day Smile Makeovers At The Reno Dentist

Cosmetic Dentistry Reno Have you ever wished your Reno cosmetic dentist could glue new pearly white covers on your existing teeth as easy as you paint a wall in your house? Guess what? With porcelain veneers, it’s possible. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin tooth-shaped fronts that are permanently bonded to your natural teeth.

Unlike a dental crown procedure, your Reno dentist does not need to remove tooth structure to place the restoration. If the teeth in question have decay, come see us immediately.

Call 775-322-5016 to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

At The Reno Dentist in Reno, veneers are used alone and in combination with other cosmetic dental procedures to create complete smile makeovers. Because they can correct cosmetic tooth misalignment in one visit, porcelain veneers are sometimes referred to as ‘instant orthodontics’.

Do veneers look like natural teeth?
Skilled Reno cosmetic dental lab artists create porcelain veneers with the color, reflective properties, and translucency of natural teeth: perfect natural teeth, that is. In addition, porcelain veneers can be made in any size or shape.

Are veneers at The Reno Dentist
strong?
Porcelain veneers are fabricated out of extremely durable material. If you have questions about whether a veneer or dental crown is the best choice for you, talk to Dr. Shane Sykes. Dr. Sykes will consider the size and condition of the tooth and its position in the mouth.

How long do veneers last?
Some smile makeover clients have veneers they received over 15 years ago. (And they still look terrific!) If properly cared for, veneers can last as long as dental crowns.

Are porcelain veneers affordable in Reno
?
The cost of cosmetic dental veneers at The Reno Dentist is competitive with other premium cosmetic and restorative dentistry practices in the Reno area. We use what we believe is the top dental lab in the state to create our client’s veneers and a significant portion of the cost of veneers goes to the lab. Porcelain veneers are often less expensive in Reno than crowns and orthodontia. For questions about the cost of porcelain veneers, call our office at 775-322-5016.

Are Dental Implants Worth It For Reno?

Dental Implants Reno A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement that looks, feels and works like a natural tooth.

The actual dental implant material is usually titanium. A post is surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post integrates with the bone to provide a stable foundation. The root replacement device can help prevent future jaw bone deterioration that can occur after a tooth has been lost. When the implant has integrated securely with the bone (it can take three to six months), a smaller post is attached. This post extends above the gum line. The artificial tooth (dental crown) is then attached.

The dental implants available in the Reno area are extremely versatile and can be used in a variety of configurations. One dental implant can replace one missing tooth. A series of implants can replace more than one tooth or anchor a dental bridge. Implants can also act as a sturdy base for partial or full dentures.

When calculating the cost of dental implants in Reno, you’ll want to compare them to other restorative options.

Call 775-322-5016 to schedule a visit to discuss your dental goals and the possibility of reasonably priced dental implants. If you are missing one or more teeth, you owe it to yourself to get information on dental implants.
