Scared of dental visits, dental implants, or even teeth whitening? Let The Reno Dentist offer 6 ways to prepare yourself mentally, emotionally and physically before your big dental day.

1. Remember Dr. Shane Sykes is trained to provide the best care and comfort possible.

2. Take some time to relax and consider what you are anxious about. Take deep breaths in and slowly let them out as you weigh the reasons for and against taking these steps to a better smile. Remember that many Reno folks have been in your shoes and passed with flying colors. Especially all of our visitors who came in for dental implants, our most popular service.

3. Know your medical history. You may be asked to fill out a medical history and medications form, so be sure you know what medications and supplements you are currently taking and review past hospitalizations and illnesses.

4. Have a dental plan. Come in for a thorough consultation. If we are aware of your dental goals, then we’ll know if combining any of it can save you time and money. We offer root canals, wisdom teeth extraction, dentures, porcelain veneers, and Invisalign to name just a few.

5. Trust the outstanding staff at The Reno Dentist to guide you through the before, during and after process. We’ve got the experience and skill to make your experience a positive one.

6. Our final and most important suggestion! Ask all the questions that you actually want answered before you have dental tools and gloved hands in your mouth!

Sparks Parents Need To Understand The Importance Of Baby Teeth!

Kid-friendly Reno dentist

Today’s Reno children’s dental blog focuses on the issue of caring for baby teeth. Why would you take care of something that’s just going to fall out and be given to the tooth fairy? It’s a good question and it has an even better answer.

Spanish Springs, Virginia City, and Carson City parents shouldn’t feel like they are wasting their time because baby teeth are more important than many people might think. Baby teeth are needed to keep the proper amount of space available for the permanent teeth that will come in later.

Baby teeth are also invaluable in the development of clear speech. This is especially important for Reno parents who are dying to know what their child means when they point to something repeatedly and say ‘scklash’ or ‘grag-grag’.

Having healthy baby teeth will also help your child develop a healthy diet because difficulty chewing can lead to the rejection of many different foods.

And, finally, tooth decay and infection can be passed down from baby teeth to permanent teeth as they develop below them. That’s not what you want for the teeth that Sparks kids are going to have for the rest of their lives. You may be setting them up to need cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers and dental implants.

Hi. I’m Dr. Shane Sykes, an experienced, kid-friendly Reno dentist.
I want my patients to have the best oral health possible. I also want them to look their best, so if you have any questions about a smile makeover or teeth whitening, give us a call at 775-322-5016.

Look Younger With A Smile Makeover In Reno

Affordable Smile Makeovers In Sparks

Welcome to The Reno Dentist dental blog! I am Dr. Shane Sykes. Perhaps you have heard that cosmetic dentistry procedures can totally transform a smile. You may be a little skeptical of the claims; after all, the promise of total transformation is a tall order.

Are smile makeovers really possible? Absolutely! At The Reno Dentist in Reno, Nevada, we work miracles with modern cosmetic dentistry.

The success of smile makeovers in Reno depends upon the skill of the cosmetic dentist, the procedures performed, and the quality of the materials. At The Reno Dentist, we deliver the best to our valued Reno, Spanish Springs, and Carson City cosmetic dental patients every day.

If your smile has several problems, including cavities, stained teeth, chipped teeth, old silver fillings, or misaligned teeth, you may suppose that a smile makeover would take many hours and several visits. The truth is, the smile re-designs I perform currently are quicker and easier than ever before. We offer dental veneers, porcelain crowns, dental bonding, and tooth-colored fillings. Ask us about sedation dentistry, invisible braces, dental implants, and crown lengthening.

There are few physical features that bring continual long-term pleasure and satisfaction like a perfect smile.
My Sparks smile makeover patients feel younger, more attractive, and more self-confident with their dramatic smile transformations. To book a cosmetic dental consultation at The Reno Dentist today, call 775-322-5016 or visit https://www.therenodentist.com/about/our-office/.
