Las Vegas’ Most Common Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Porcelain veneers are, by far, the most oft-performed cosmetic procedure at our office. Also referred to as “dental veneers,” porcelain veneers are wafer-thin sheaths placed on top of natural teeth that have a minor flaw like a chip or a crack.
Dr. James Polley, cosmetic dentist in Las Vegas, will perform a thorough evaluation and discuss with you how porcelain veneers will correct your problem. You can get one veneer or several veneers; the number you need depends on the number of damaged teeth.
Whether you need one or several veneers, the procedure is very much the same. Dr. Polley will remove a small amount of enamel from the tooth to receive the porcelain veneer; this is done at your first porcelain veneer appointment. During that same visit, temporary veneers will be placed on top of your tooth while your permanent ones are custom-made in a laboratory. During your next visit, the permanent porcelain veneer will be bonded to your tooth using the most advanced dental technology available today. Finally, Dr. Polley will add the finishing touches to your beautiful new teeth. People may notice you have a stunning new smile, but they won’t know you have porcelain veneers unless you tell them.
Porcelain veneers fix the following problems:
• Discolored teeth (from smoking or medications)
• Worn teeth
• Chipped teeth
• Broken teeth
• Cracked teeth
• Misaligned teeth
• Uneven teeth
• Irregularly shaped teeth
• Small gaps between teeth
Invisalign® Clear Aligners are another way we improve patient smiles through cosmetic dentistry. Invisalign® shifts your teeth over time to form a beautiful, straight smile. With these amazing clear aligners, your teeth will gradually move into a perfectly straight position, and you can even see your teeth straightening mapped out for you on the amazing technology Dr. Polley utilizes.
