The appearance of your smile can often have a negative effect on how you feel about yourself. Suppose your smile is misshapen, unevenly spaced, crooked, or discolored. In that case, it can often lead to self-esteem issues, causing you to avoid smiling fully and interacting socially with those around you. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry allows you to restore your smile and self-confidence. Dr. Marielaina Perrone offers several cosmetic dentistry treatments in Las Vegas, NV, to restore and enhance your teeth to their beautiful, natural appearance and improve your smile.
Below we will review the top 6 cosmetic dental procedures to improve your smile.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular and straightforward cosmetic enhancements that can significantly improve your smile. Due to smoking, medications, age, food and drink, injury, and poor dental hygiene, your teeth can become stained or discolored over time.
Dr. Perrone will begin with a thorough examination and professional teeth cleaning to remove any plaque or tartar damaging your teeth. Then, Dr. Perrone will develop a treatment plan for a teeth whitening strategy based on your particular needs. This whitening treatment will enhance your smile and protect your enamel, giving you a white, beautiful, and healthier smile.
Dr. Perrone recommends this treatment for crooked, overlapping, or misaligned teeth. Invisalign can help correct these dental issues and enhance the appearance and health of children and adults.
This treatment utilizes gentle pressure to shift crooked teeth into the correct position slowly. Moreover, the clear braces are easy to use and help you avoid the hassles of wearing traditional braces.
If you have cracked, chipped, decayed, misaligned, gapped, or discolored teeth dental veneers may be a good option for you.
Dental veneers are custom-made wafer-thin porcelain shells chemically bonded onto your natural teeth’s surfaces to cover your dental imperfections, thus enhancing and restoring your smile. They work well for stained, poorly shaped, naturally short teeth or those with mild to moderate crookedness or gaps. Dr. Perrone can also use these tooth-colored layers to restore your teeth’s shape, size, and function or fix unsightly stains that do not respond to teeth whitening treatment.
This treatment – also known as cosmetic contouring – helps improve your teeth’s shape and size or fix slight overlaps or gaps. If your teeth are too long, Dr. Perrone can reduce their length by slightly filing them down. Then, she will apply dental bonding material to your teeth. Sculpting them carefully to achieve a more even, natural, and beautiful appearance.
Dental implants improve your smile by replacing your severely damaged or missing teeth. This treatment involves placing a titanium implant directly into your jawbone below your gum line. The dental implant fuses with the surrounding bone tissues (called osseointegration) and, once healed, is a strong and stable replacement. This allows your dentist to place a custom dental crown or bridge to perform all the functions of your natural teeth.
A dental implant procedure takes several months to complete and may require multiple dental visits. The final result will look and feel like a natural tooth. Dental implants can provide a lasting solution for your missing teeth.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
A dental bridge or crown may be an excellent choice if you have severe tooth decay, a weak, broken, damaged tooth, or one or more missing teeth. Your dentist can also use this procedure to improve the size and shape of your teeth or protect teeth that have had large fillings or undergone a root canal treatment.
These crowns and bridges are custom-fabricated to match your existing teeth to brighten your smile and preserve oral health.
Your smile can be ready to be restored and enhanced in no time with cosmetic dentistry (including dental implants and porcelain dental crowns).
