New to Las Vegas? How to Find Your New Dentist

New to Las Vegas? How to Find Your New Dentist | SummerlinThere are countless hassles involved in moving to a new town such as Las Vegas. Aside from finding the perfect home, you must also change your address with USPS and have internet and cable installed. One thing that often gets missed in the constant stress of the moving process is finding a new dentist. You likely had a dentist, doctor, ophthalmologist and other specialists at your old home, but now you must find the right ones for you in the Las Vegas area.

Here are some tips to help you decide which dentistry office is the best fit:

  1. Scheduling Your Appointment: There are several new patient papers you must fill out before being seen. Some dentistry offices send this paperwork ahead of time or offer an online option such as our dentists’ new patient forms. The ease of making your appointment can give you a good impression before you step inside the door.
  2. Atmosphere: You should feel welcome the moment you step into your new dentist’s office. Whether it’s through softer lighting in the waiting room with ample reading materials or just an overall feeling you get when interacting with the staff.
  3. Bedside Manor: Your dentist should be friendly and walk you through the new patient process. You will likely need x-rays and a teeth cleaning before moving forward with any necessary dental work. If you don’t feel comfortable with the dentist, you may want to keep looking.
  4. Continued Education and Certifications: Many dentistry professionals such as our Drs. Bryson and Margio strive to continue their education and stay up to date with the latest certifications and expertise in the ever-advancing dental technologies.
  5. Honesty: Many dentistry professionals may try to sell you on unnecessary dental procedures such as pushing you to fill a cavity that isn’t needed. You want a dentist who is honest with you instead of seeing you as a dollar sign.

If you’re new to the Las Vegas area and/or are looking for a new dentist, please contact Drs. Bryson and Margio in Las Vegas today at (702) 445-7075 to schedule your dental exam and evaluation. Our dentists serve clients in Summerlin, Henderson and Las Vegas, Nevada.

Are Porcelain Veneers or Teeth Whitening Best for Your Smile?

Are Porcelain Veneers or Teeth Whitening Best for Your Smile?

Cosmetic dentistry procedures such as porcelain veneers and teeth whitening are great ways to improve your smile and get rid of teeth stains and chips, but which one is best for you? Well, the right one for your smile depends on the current state of your teeth, gums and overall dental health. Our cosmetic dentist in Las Vegas can help you determine the right option to enhance the appearance and function of your mouth.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers can do more than whiten your teeth. They can correct chips, cracks and misshapen teeth as well as worn, crooked and overcrowded teeth. These thin, porcelain shells are customized for you, and our goal is to give you a stunning, natural-looking smile. The shells fit comfortably over your teeth and look and feel just like your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers require very little upkeep. You can care for them just as you would your other teeth, by brushing twice a day, flossing and rinsing with mouthwash. This cosmetic option is a great way to transform teeth with chips and cracks into a flawless smile.

The Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is likely your best option if you have teeth that are in good shape but have stained due to coffee, tea, wine or nicotine use. Genetics and certain medications may also cause your teeth to yellow or become discolored. There are dozens of over-the-counter products that promise to whiten your teeth, but they often fall short because the whitening agents aren’t strong enough to make a lasting difference. Our cosmetic dentists offer professional in-office teeth whitening and customized take-home kits to continue to improve the color of your teeth over time.

Porcelain veneers and teeth whitening are best for men and women who don’t have any stage of gum disease.

If you’re interested in improving the appearance of your smile, please contact our dentists in Las Vegas today at (702) 445-7075 to schedule your dental exam. Drs. Bryson and Margio serve clients in Las Vegas, Summerlin and Henderson, Nevada.

How to Choose a Dentist for You and Your Children

How to Choose a Dentist for You and Your Children | Las VegasWhether you’re new to the Las Vegas area or are looking to switch to a different dentist, picking the right dental professional for your children can be complicated. You want a family dentist who has the compassion, patience and experience necessary to make your child feel comfortable. The dentist’s chair can be intimidating for both kids and adults, so the office atmosphere is one important aspect to consider when you choose a new dentist.

Some other factors to keep in mind as you shop around for the right dentist include:

  • His or her credentials: You want a dentist who has the respect of their peers and strives to continue their education to provide the latest procedures and treatments available for your teeth and the growing teeth of your child.
  • Affordable dental financing: As your children grow up, they will need bi-annual dental exams and potentially, fluoride treatments and orthodontics. These can be quite pricey, especially if you have several kids around the same age. Our dentists offer financing options so your family can have great dental care without breaking the bank.
  • Emergency dentistry: Your children are likely involved in after-school activities and sports, which may increase their risk of a dental emergency. Consider choosing a dentist who offers emergency dentistry, so you know what to do and who to call if your child has an urgent tooth issue.
  • Cleanliness: This is somewhat of a no-brainer, but pay attention to the state of the dentistry office and the hygiene habits of the staff.

There are many dentists to choose from in the Las Vegas area, and picking the best one for your family can be overwhelming. Use the tips we listed above to help you make the right decision.

Lumineers® vs. Porcelain Veneers: What’s the Difference?

Many patients are unhappy with the appearance of their smile. Fortunately, Drs. Randy Bryson and Toni Margio offer cosmetic dentistry treatments to address aesthetic issues with your teeth, such as Lumineers® and porcelain veneers. But what, exactly, is the difference between the two?

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that bond to the outer surfaces of your teeth. This type of veneer offers a relatively non-invasive treatment for cosmetic issues, including:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Teeth that have been worn down over time

However, Lumineers® are slightly different. While most other veneers require the outer surface of your tooth to be ground down to make room for the veneer, Lumineers® are so thin, that little to no surface reduction is needed.

Lumineers® offer several advantages, such as:

  • Durable, lasting 20 years or more
  • Pain-free replacements
  • No post-placement discomfort or heightened tooth sensitivity
  • Instant results

Both of these cosmetic dentistry options can offer great results. Depending on your unique goals and needs, one treatment option may be better for you than the other. To fully determine which veneers are right for you, our dentists will meet with you in person to discuss your cosmetic goals and needs. Together, we will formulate your personalized treatment plan to help you get the smile of your dreams.
