Cosmetic Dentistry in Reno, NV
Cosmetic dentistry can provide great improvements in smiles that have become discolored or otherwise damaged over the years. These enhancements can contribute to a higher level of confidence and help people express themselves openly and make a good impression.
The Reno dental office of Larry Gilman, DDS & Michael Gilman offers highly-skilled cosmetic services for their patients who wish to benefit from all that cosmetic dentistry has to offer.
Teeth Whitening and Porcelain Veneers
Two of the most popular and simple ways to achieve a more appealing smile is with teeth whitening or veneers. Depending on the cause of dental discoloration, and if there are any other mild imperfections you’d like to address, one of these treatments may be right for you.
Teeth whitening is by far the most common cosmetic treatment today. Commonly referred to as “bleaching” it is the process of removing stains from the surface (enamel) of teeth. After a routine cleaning, Dr. Gilman will apply the whitening agent directly on to one tooth at a time until all are covered and allow the material to set. This process is repeated up to four times to reach the level of brightness you desire.
Professional teeth whitening is very effective for most of our patients, but for those with deep, permanent stains, veneers are usually a better choice
For permanent (intrinsic) discoloration and other damage, veneers work by completely concealing the front of stained, chipped, cracked, or mildly misaligned teeth.
Dr. Gilman can provide veneers in as little as two visits. First, he obtains a digital impression of your teeth to send to our trusted lab where your veneers are fabricated and then delivered to our office. In about two weeks you will return to have these thin porcelain shells secured to your front teeth for a complete transformation.
In some cases, we can craft your veneers right here in our office
Crowns and Bridges
For teeth that are damaged or missing, our Reno practice offers life-like crowns and bridges. These restorations can be placed immediately, thanks to our CEREC technology, or after teeth whitening for a uniformly brighter smile. If you would like a brighter smile, we recommend this approach as ceramic prosthetics cannot be lightened later.
Dr. Gilman has the skill and experience you need when considering dental implants. This procedure entails having a biocompatible artificial tooth root inserted into the jaw for a superior tooth replacement experience.
Same-Day Cosmetic Dentistry
Our dental practice is equipped with CEREC, the latest in chairside restorations. This means if you need a quality crown or bridge, you won’t typically have to wait. After obtaining a digital impression, Dr. Gilman can fabricate your restoration in our office, saving you time and often money as well.
