The brand name of an orthodontic procedure, a kind of thin clear aligner, is Invisalign. SmartTrack, a malleable thermoplastic polymer, is used to construct the aligner.
With Invisalign, you can fix spacing and crowding issues as well as some minor and moderate biting issues. The following dental issues can be treated with Invisalign, according to the company's website: overbite, underbite, cross-bite, and crowded teeth.
The initial step in the process is to see an orthodontist, who will create a 3-D scan of your mouth and jaw. Using this illustration, they'll come up with a plan to move your teeth into the proper alignment.
Your orthodontist will next utilize the plan to create a set of customized plastic aligners. By exerting pressure on your teeth, these aligners will gradually shift and reposition them into the right places.
Depending on your orthodontist's recommendations, you'll swap out one set of aligners for a fresh one every week or two. The typical amount of time every day that you must wear the aligners is 20 to 22 hours.
Use Invisalign to straighten your teeth without using braces. To schedule a consultation to go over Invisalign in the Las Vegas, Nevada, area, give us a call.

As an alternative to veneers, bonding is a restorative procedure for teeth that have been cracked, damaged, discolored, or positioned irregularly.
To get it ready for the procedure, the tooth is gently etched and coated with a bonding agent. The dentist will add plastic resin and shape the liquid into the appropriate form when it has dried and hardened. After then, the resin is sliced, polished, and smoothed to give it a natural appearance.
Bonding can often be completed in just one dentist visit and significantly enhance a tooth's look. However, the employed plastic resin is more prone to staining, chipping, and shattering since it is less durable than actual tooth enamel. Bonding typically lasts three to five years before it needs to be repaired.
Thin ceramic shells called porcelain veneers are glued to the front surfaces of teeth. Because of their ease of use and adaptability, they have become increasingly popular as a means to enhance your smile.
The application of a custom veneer requires both a high level of technical proficiency and exacting attention to aesthetics. We frequently employ veneers, customizing each instance to enhance the individual characteristics of each patient's smile.
The extremely thin porcelain veneers are exceptionally resistant to stains from coffee, tea, and even cigarette smoke and are hardly noticeable when cemented to the teeth. In terms of strength and aesthetics, other restorative options cannot match their likeness to healthy, white tooth enamel.
If properly maintained, porcelain veneers will enhance your smile for well over a decade.
According to Dr. Michael Sherman and Silver Mountain Dental, your veneers will be crafted from the best porcelains and bonded using the most cutting-edge and tried-and-true methods.
You may extend the life of your veneers by using them as tools to open and cut things, and if they are unintentionally broken or damaged, you can usually just replace the offending veneer.
When a tooth's biting surface is damaged to more than 50%, an inlay or onlay is employed.
Inlays and onlays may be made of porcelain, gold, or composite resin. These components are joined to the tooth's troublesome region. An inlay, which resembles a filling, is placed inside the cusp points of the tooth. A larger restoration called an onlay is similar to an inlay but covers one or more of the tooth's cusps.
For inlays and onlays, gold has long been the material of choice. However, porcelain has been more well-liked recently due to its durability and color, which might be able to match the color of your teeth naturally.
How are inlays and onlays applied?
The treatment for inlays and onlays takes two appointments to complete. The filling is replaced or the damaged or decayed region of the tooth is removed during the first session, and the tooth is prepped for the inlay or onlay. The dentist takes an impression of the tooth and sends it to a lab for manufacturing to guarantee perfect fit and bite. The dentist will then apply a temporary sealant to the tooth and make an appointment for the following visit.
The temporary sealant is removed at the second session. The inlay or onlay will next be checked by Dr. Chanon Ruangjumrusvet, DMD and the Silver Stream Dental to ensure that it fits properly. The inlay or onlay will be cemented to the tooth using a strong resin and polished to a smooth finish if the fit is satisfactory.
Traditional fillings can reduce the strength of a natural tooth by up to 50%. A tooth's strength can be increased by up to 75% by inlays and onlays, which are bonded directly to the tooth using particular high-strength resins. They live between 10 and 30 years as a result. In some cases, onlays are a good option when the tooth damage isn't serious enough to require a full crown.

Dental bleaching can be used to treat discolored teeth. Teeth discoloration can be brought on by aging, chemical deterioration, or staining. With the most recent in bleaching technology, we can offer a secure method for obtaining a gorgeous, shining smile. In cases of severe tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only treatment options; however, given the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worthwhile to attempt.
How is teeth whitening done?
A personalized mouthguard or stent is made using an impression to keep the bleach in place. After using the product nightly for about 3 to 4 hours for a week or two, noticeable whitening will have taken place. The change can be nothing short of remarkable in some circumstances. With the aid of bleaching technology, we can guarantee changes in aging, stained, or yellowing teeth for self-assurance in look. For teeth that are severely stained, crowns or porcelain veneers can be a better option.
In medicine stores and pharmacies, bleaching agents are available over-the-counter. However, it's recommended to stay with items that our office suggests because these products have the potential to harm the gums and teeth.
