While you’re at The Summit, you can pick up a new outfit, grab some delicious food, and now…get the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. If you’re dealing with troublesome stains, chips, cracks, or gaps in your teeth, the team at Summit Boulevard Smiles can help eliminate any flaw you can imagine with the treatments outlined below. From teeth whitening to porcelain veneers and even Botox, we have everything you could possibly need to always look and feel your best. To schedule an appointment, contact us today.
If you’re dealing with multiple smile imperfections, we can easily take care of them all with one of our veneer treatments. These extremely thin ceramic coverings fit onto and completely cover the front of the teeth, and with them, we can fix:
Porcelain veneers are more permanent and durable, while Lumineers can be applied in much less time and require less prep. Whichever one you choose, the end result will be a set of teeth you’ll love to show off.
When it comes to repairing a tooth that shows prominently in the smile, we won’t simply slap on an unnatural metal crown and call it a day! Rather, we’ll use a restoration that is made of 100% high-quality dental porcelain. This material is notable for being strong and durable, but it can also be shaped and shaded to resemble real enamel in every way possible. With it, we can create restorations so lifelike that absolutely no one but you and your dentist will know that you’ve had dental work.
If you’re looking for a quick way to take care of that one pesky stain, chip, or gap that has bothered you for years, direct bonding can do it in just an hour or less. Your dentist will apply a color-matched composite resin to your compromised tooth, and then they can literally sculpt it to hide any shortcoming you can imagine. This treatment is not only fast, but painless as well, and you can trust the results to last for 10 years or more.
Do your crowded or oddly spaced teeth cause you to think twice before smiling? Not willing to get braces to straighten them? Now you don’t have to with Invisalign! Instead of brackets and wires, this system uses a series of clear plastic aligner trays to gently shift the teeth in the most discreet way possible. The trays are practically invisible when worn, and you can even take them out when it’s time to eat or brush!
Everything from the foods and beverages you enjoy every day to natural aging and even genetics can leave your teeth looking a bit stained and discolored. To turn the brightness up on your smile, we’re ready to offer you a choice of professional-strength whitening treatments that will deliver results you simply can’t get with a store bought kit. In our office, we can make your smile dramatically whiter in less than an hour, or if you want a more gradual treatment, we can provide you with your own custom-made take-home kit. Either way, the end result will be the same: a pristinely white set of teeth.
For many, the issue with their smile has nothing to do with their teeth, but rather their gums. A smile that has an overbearing gum line can often look off balance, but we can fix this issue in just one appointment using our soft tissue laser. With a highly-concentrated beam of light, your dentist can painlessly remove excess gum tissue to unveil previously hidden dental structure. From there, they can shape your gum line along the teeth to create the perfect frame for your new smile.
Cosmetic dentistry has the ability to completely transform your smile from top to bottom. However, it can be difficult to know for sure which treatments you need to make your smile look the way you want it to. At Summit Boulevard Dental, we want to do everything possible to make your dream smile a reality. This is where smile makeovers come in. With a makeover, we can break down exactly which treatments will best address your cosmetic dental concerns.
For example, it’s possible that certain teeth in your smile might need porcelain veneers to cover imperfections, but other teeth may only need some whitening treatment or cosmetic bonding to address concerns. Perhaps you have some teeth that require more complex restorations like metal-free crowns. Regardless of how simple or complex your overall treatment becomes, we’ll personalize your makeover to meet your specific needs from start to finish.
If you’re searching for ways to improve the appearance of your smile, look no further than cosmetic dentistry in Reno. However, before you invest in any of these treatments, it’s perfectly understandable for you to have some questions. Don’t worry; we’ve collected some of the cosmetic dentistry questions that we get asked the most often and answered them here for your benefit. If you have a question about any aspect of cosmetic dentistry that you don’t see answered here on this page, just give us a call and we’ll be more than happy to help you out!
An imperfect smile can leave kids, especially older kids and teenagers, feeling self-conscious. However, before going through with any cosmetic treatment, we have to ensure that your child’s smile is in optimal health. Any issues like cavities and gum disease must be dealt with before undergoing cosmetic treatment. Once your child’s oral health is squared away, we can begin addressing their aesthetic concerns. We typically don’t recommend permanent treatment like veneers for children since it requires removal of enamel. Instead, we suggest getting chips treated with direct bonding. We also don’t generally prescribe Invisalign to kids, since their teeth and jawbones are still developing, but we may recommend it for older teens. Ultimately, it’s up to your dentist in Reno to evaluate your child’s smile and determine what the best treatment would be.
Typically, dental insurance companies don’t count cosmetic procedures as medically necessary, so they don’t cover the majority of treatment. However, sometimes, such as in the case of a damaged tooth, a cosmetic treatment may overlap into a restorative procedure, such as with dental crowns or direct bonding. It’s best to consult with your insurance company to find out exactly what portion of your desired plans they cover. If not, we partner with CareCredit, a low-to-no interest financing option that lets you fit paying for the treatment you want within your budget.
It’s no secret that everyone wants to have a beautiful smile. In fact, people with straight white teeth are often perceived as healthier, more attractive, and even more successful. Although it might seem frivolous to spend money on improving the aesthetics of your smile, the benefits far outweigh the cost. Having a more attractive smile can bolster your self-esteem, making you a more confident person. If you’re confident in your smile, you’ll naturally going to smile more often. This will make you happier, since the act of smiling triggers the release of feel-good chemicals like dopamine in the brain. Lastly, if your smile looks good, you’ll want to keep it that way, so you’re more likely to take care of it with regular brushing, flossing, and checkups.
Rest assured that our dentists have all the necessary qualifications to take your smile from blah to beautiful. Unlike many over-the-counter teeth whitening products, our professional treatment won’t cause any damage to your teeth and gums. To combat any sensitivity, we can provide your pearly whites with a topical fluoride varnish when we’re done with treatment.
