You can get the smile of your dreams with cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Robert Mays, Jr. and Dr. Jake Banks in Sparks, NV can help you cosmetic dentistrydetermine which cosmetic dentistry procedure is right for you.

1. Dental Implants

Dental implants are root-like structures made of titanium. They can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants look like natural teeth. With dental implants, you will have the most beautiful smile to face the world for the rest of your life. You need a sufficient amount of bone in order to adequately support a dental implant.

2. Cosmetic Fillings

Need a dental filling? Everyone needs a filling at some point in their lives. Cosmetic fillings, or tooth-colored fillings, are used to restore damaged or decayed teeth. Amalgam fillings are less popular than composite fillings because of their silvery appearance. Once your dentist completes your cosmetic filling, it will look completely natural and won't be noticeable when you speak.

3. Teeth Whitening

At-home teeth whitening involves custom-made dental trays filled with a whitening gel that you can use at home. At-home teeth whitening kits provide great results in 1 to 2 weeks of use. For in-office bleaching, your dentist in Sparks, NV, will combine a whitening gel with a light source to speed up the process. One in-office bleaching session can make your teeth about eight shades lighter.

4. Dental Crowns

Dental crowns encase the entire visible portion of the teeth that lie at and above the gum line. Dental crowns can correct fractures, cracks, discoloration, chips, crookedness, and more. Dental crowns also strengthen the teeth and improve tooth function. They can withstand chewing forces well.

5. Invisalign

You can straighten your smile without a mouthful of metal. Invisalign gradually moves your teeth using a series of virtually invisible aligners. Many patients love the fact that Invisalign aligners are clear and that they work with their lifestyle. Invisalign aligners are removable. With Invisalign, you can eat whatever you want, whenever you want, and maintain good oral hygiene.
