Las Vegas dentist offers ways to close gaps between teeth
At the practice of Dr. Arthur Tomaro, a beautiful smile is of the utmost importance! When patients have a smile they are proud to share, they often enjoy better self-esteem and confidence. This is especially true for patients who work face-to-face with people every day at their job, 40 hours a week. These patients have to have a memorable, beautiful smile others will remember and enjoy. When there are gaps present between the teeth in the dental arch that show when patients laugh or talk with others, they may be slightly embarrassed with their appearance. Thankfully, cosmetic dentists in the Las Vegas, NV area have a few different methodologies to assist in addressing these imperfections.
With gaps between the teeth, there are two primary methods of treatment available at the practice of Dr. Arthur Tomaro: porcelain veneers (also known as “instant orthodontics”) and composite resin dental bonding.
Porcelain veneers are ceramic facings that a dentist will custom fabricate for patients. They are created to match the shape, size, and color of the existing teeth so they provide seamless repair. The dentist bonds the porcelain veneer to the front of the tooth to disguise the issue and allow patients to quickly and easily get back to sharing their smile with others!
Using a special composite resin material, patients can cover up gaps between their teeth. This material is like a putty that the dentist puts in place, shapes around the tooth, and hardens with a special light. The material is then filed down and polished so give the appearance of natural tooth enamel. This treatment is done during a single appointment, and is also one of the most economic solutions for a quick fix.
Both porcelain veneers and dental bonding are easily obtainable for patients. Most individuals are candidates for both treatment, though a consultation appointment is the best way to get started learning more.
