Best Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Your smile can give you an opportunity to make a great 1st impression. People who are not confident in their smile will not give a great 1st impression. There are many reasons why you might not be happy with your smile. Luckily, cosmetic dentistry can fix many of those flaws.

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is built on a foundation of good oral health and diligent dental hygiene routines. Cosmetic dentistry is typically considered elective bit not always. Cosmetic dentistry specifically addresses problems with the aesthetics of your teeth. In the process these procedures will also increase the health and function of your smile.

Cosmetic dentistry might address issues with the color, spacing, or alignment of your teeth. It can fill in gaps or hide the appearance of chips. The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to restore and enhance your smile to meet your desires.

Cosmetic dental costs will vary depending on the procedure. Because they are elective, your insurance may not cover any part of the cost.

What is the Best Cosmetic Dentistry for Your Smile?

The best cosmetic dentistry procedure for your smile will be the most attractive, most conservative option that can meet your desires.

Below are the most common options offered by Las Vegas Dentist Marielaina Perrone DDS.

Porcelain Veneers

During this procedure, your dentist will fabricate wafer thin shells of porcelain to place over the front of existing teeth. The veneer will be permanently bonded to your tooth. This procedure is strictly cosmetic and intended to cover up discoloration, chips, or other minor esthetic flaws. 

Laser Gum Contouring

Laser gum contouring can improve the appearance of your gum line. This will make your smile look more symmetrical.

This painless procedure only requires the removal of a small amount of gum tissue to achieve an enhanced smile. 

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening allows you to brighten your smile and reverse the effects of aging, smoking, and dietary choices.

There are a few options when it comes to whitening. You can whiten teeth in-office, at home. Consult with your dentist to determine which option is ideal for your smile.

Dental Implants

Implants completely replace missing, diseased, or damaged teeth to restore your smile.

Your dentist will place a new titanium root which will fise to your jawbone like a natural tooth. Then a natural-looking crown will be placed to replace the tooth that is missing. Implants are permanent and natural-looking and can help preserve your jaw as you age. 

Porcelain Crowns

While veneers can fix superficial or minor issues with your smile, crowns cover the entire tooth. If your entire tooth has suffered decay or damage, a porcelain crown can cover the entire tooth to preserve the function and esthetics of your smile. 

Dental Bonding

If you only have one or two problem teeth and desire a quick, attractive fix, dental Bonding can be an ideal solution. It is inexpensive and non-permanent, allowing you to address a cosmetic concern quickly and easily. 

Bonding can quickly and easily cover discoloration, chips, gaps, or eroded enamel. The dentist can apply bonding in a single office visit, with no pain whatsoever. It will allow you to preserve your existing tooth structure and still achieve a beautiful smile!

Esthetic Benefits

Dental bonding material comes in many different shades to match any smile.

Dentists can even complete teeth whitening prior to dental bonding. This will allow you to select a whiter shade for your dental bonding.

Dental bonding material does not change color. Teeth whitening is frequently recommended together with dental bonding.

Bonding is Strong and Durable

Dental bonding can be used to restore and enhance a wide range of cosmetic dental issues

This may range from a chipped tooth to a more complicated cosmetic issue like cracked teeth or gaps between the teeth.

Boost Self Confidence

When your smile has visible chips, gaps, and cracks, it will be hard to smile confidently. Dental bonding is an ideal choice for smaller repairs and cosmetic adjustments.

Once your smile is restored and enhanced you can smile confidently.

Porcelain Veneers

Sometimes referred to as a Hollywood smile or even instant orthodontics. Porcelain veneers can make minor alignment corrections but can also give you an entirely new perfect smile.

Who is A Candidate?

First and foremost, a patient must be free of tooth decay and periodontal disease. A good foundational is necessary for a long term cosmetic result. A patient whose teeth are discolored, misshapen, slightly misaligned, and/or have gaps are perfect candidates.

Dental Implants

Tooth loss is a much more common phenomenon than we would like. Luckily, dental implants can restore your smile in a way that brings esthetics, function, and comfort.

Dental Implants Procedure

There are three general steps to placing and restoring a dental implant:

Step 1: The Dental implant is placed directly into the jawbone. In about 6 months time it fuses into the jawbone to serve as the new tooth’s root.

Step 2: An abutment and dental crown are custom fabricated for the new tooth.

Step 3: The dental crown and abutment are fixed to the implant to restore and enhance your smile.

Dental Implants Benefits

  • Replaces damaged or broken teeth
  • Improves functionality 
  • Improves overall smile esthetics
  • With proper care should last a lifetime

Dental Implant Candidates

Dental implants are an ideal treatment for patients who are missing teeth due to trauma or have damaged teeth that need to replacement.


Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a dental restorative procedure that targets the surface of the teeth to create a bright, beautiful smile.

Dental bonding is a quick process with minimal downtime. It is very appealing for those who do not want to invest financially or time in their smile.

How Dental Bonding Is Done

Dr. Perrone carefully chooses a color shade that will match with your natural smile.

The dental resin is applied, sculpted, molded, and hardened with a special dental light.

Benefits of Dental Bonding

  • Quick, cheaper procedure
  • Provides immediate, visible improvement
  • Lasts up to 10 years with proper care
  • Customized for each patient

Dental Bonding Candidates

If you are unhappy with the aesthetic appearance of your smile, cosmetic dentist Marielaina Perrone DDS can use various dental procedures to enhance your smile. Cosmetic dentistry treatments, technology, and materials continue to move forward, offering patients more options than ever to achieve the ideal smile of their dreams. Below you will read about some of the most common cosmetic dentistry in Henderson, NV.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

In-office teeth whitening is typically completed in one appointment. The teeth whitening procedure involves applying a specialized gel with a powerful bleaching agent to the teeth, activated by a specialized light. 

Following treatment, you may receive custom whitening trays and gel to use at home to enhance and maintain your results periodically.

Why patients choose teeth whitening:

  • Whitening is perfect for lifting stains caused by red wine, coffee, tea, smoking, and certain medications
  • Minimal discomfort (some patients will experience temporary tooth sensitivity)
  • Fast, uniform esthetic results
  • A whiter smile exhibits a healthier and more youthful smile
  • Cost-effective

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are tiny porcelain shells chemically bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. These can hide imperfections and create a more uniform-looking smile. Veneers are commonly used to hide small tooth chips or cracks, uneven tooth edges, small misalignments, stains, or discoloration that will not respond to whitening or even abnormally shaped teeth.

Veneers typically require one to two visits to design and place.

Why patients choose veneers:

  • Can quickly transform an imperfect smile into a flawless one
  • Custom shade matching to the surrounding teeth for a uniform cosmetic result
  • Conservative treatment as just a small amount of natural tooth structure is removed
  • Lasting results with the proper at-home care and dental maintenance

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is applying a tooth-colored resin using specialized light to cover tooth chips, cracks, stains, or gaps between teeth. The material can be sculpted and molded to improve the tooth’s size, shape, and spacing. It blends in seamlessly with your natural smile and is virtually undetectable.

Bonding typically takes one appointment to complete.

Why patients choose dental bonding:

  • Fast cosmetic results
  • Little tooth structure needs to be removed
  • Inexpensive compared to other esthetic treatments
  • Results last a long time
