  • Cosmetic Dentistry

    If your teeth are discolored, stained, chipped, worn out, broken, misshapen, excessively gapped, or misaligned, modern cosmetic dentistry can help you solve all these problems and achieve a perfect smile. Cosmetic dental work focuses on different procedures to improve your smile. An improved appearance of a smile not only keeps you confident but also urges you to maintain your oral health. When you schedule an appointment with our dentist for cosmetic dentistry, you can expect the following procedures: COSMETIC TEETH WHITENING Also known as cosmetic teeth bleaching, this procedure helps to whiten and brighten your teeth, thereby reversing the effects of staining or discoloration. Staining on the teeth happens because of the reasons such as smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol, or caffeine. Your teeth also get stained due to the excessive accumulation of plaque or tartar. Cosmetic teeth whitening addresses all these problems. DENTAL VENEERS Veneers refer to thin shells made using composite material or porcelain. They are customized according to the shape and size of your tooth and are cemented to its front side. The use of dental veneers addresses conditions such as chipped teeth, crooked teeth, and discolored teeth. It can also be used to fill the spaces between your teeth. DENTAL IMPLANTS This cosmetic dental procedure uses a metal restoration to replace missing teeth. The device is made using titanium and is surgically fitted into your jawbone, where your tooth is missing. This implant acts as a tooth root to anchor different types of artificial teeth like dentures, crowns, or bridges.  DENTAL CROWNS Also known as dental caps, crowns are custom-made restorations fitted on your tooth to treat concerns such as a broken tooth, chipped tooth, a decayed tooth, etc. Dental crowns are also used to treat teeth with large fillings or cover unwanted gaps between the teeth. TEETH SHAPING Cosmetic teeth shaping or enamel shaping is the process of reshaping the teeth by filling or removing the tooth enamel. This non-invasive and not-so-painful procedure gives immediate effects and leads to long-term results. TOOTH BONDING Cosmetic tooth bonding refers to the process of bonding tooth-colored composite resin materials to the tooth, intending to restore a broken or chipped tooth. Sometimes, tooth bonding can also enhance the appearance of a badly stained tooth. COSMETIC ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT Our orthodontists address several dental problems like crooked teeth or buck teeth and restore your smile to perfection. You can also reserve an appointment for your kids. Some of the prominent orthodontic appliances we use are dental braces and Invisalign.

  • Dental Implants

    A dental implant is a screw-like surgical component that is placed in your jawbone to provide support to the prosthetics, such as a crown. An implant acts as an artificial tooth root and provides a strong foundation to the replaced prosthetic tooth. The success rate of a dental implant is up to 98%, and with proper maintenance, it can last for a lifetime. There is hardly any pain involved in the procedure since you will be given local anesthesia. BENEFITS OF A DENTAL IMPLANT * They help improve your overall self-esteem and confidence. * Implants improve the appearance of your smile. * They function and look exactly like your natural teeth. * They are highly durable, comfortable, and convenient. * Dental implants improve your overall dental health. HOW ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS PLACED? The overall structure of a dental implant consists of 3 main components- the implant, the crown, and the abutment, which is a connector that supports the crown. During the procedure, you will be given local anesthesia as well as sedatives to make your experience pain-free and much more comfortable. During the initial diagnosis, our dentist will conduct a thorough screening of the teeth, gums, jawbone, and overall health. If you have any pre-existing health conditions, please do disclose them to our dentist so that we are well aware of them before commencing with the treatment. Scans and digital x-rays will be taken to be used as a reference to fabricate the restoration and understand the jawbone structure. Further, we will share this data with a dental laboratory to get the restoration made. We will administer local anesthesia during the next appointment and make a small hole in the jawbone in place of the missing tooth. The metal implant stud will be placed in this hole and secured with dental cement. We will advise a few months of healing period so that the bone can integrate with the implant. Once the implant is firmly secured, the second surgery will be carried out to place the crown on the implant. We will check for a suitable fit and comfort and then secure it firmly using a connecting abutment and dental adhesives. We will polish the crown and take a bite test to ensure the restoration is fixed perfectly in place. AFTERCARE Dental implants ideally last for several years without any hassle, making them one of the most reliable and longest-lasting restorations. But, it is necessary for patients to care for them optimally by brushing and flossing regularly, avoiding biting hard objects, limiting the consumption of colored foods, etc. Please reach out to our dental practice in Henderson, NV, to have a consultation with our dentist, Dr. Christensen. Please call us at (702) 331-2121 or schedule an online consultation, and we'll guide you further.

  • Dental Cleanings & Exam

    Do you visit the dentist for routine dental check-ups and examinations? Regular dental exams involving professional dental cleaning are the foundation of preventive dentistry. They focus on minimizing different dental concerns and other health issues.  If you want to maintain your oral health in the long run, it is integral to see our dentist for regular dental exams and routine check-ups. When you take care of your mouth, you also end up protecting the rest of your body from severe medical disorders. Dental check-ups also help to detect the signs of existing issues with your oral wellness.  BENEFITS OF DENTAL CHECK-UPS AND EXAMINATIONS * Prevent future dental issues * Check for severe dental concerns and treat them in time * Save your teeth from different dental problems * Educate on maintaining proper oral hygiene * Treat bad breath * Enhance your smile Here’s everything to know about dental cleanings and examinations:  DENTAL CLEANING Our dentist will start the procedure by cleaning your teeth using specialized dental instruments. They will scrape the excessive build-up of plaque and tartar from your teeth, followed by flossing them. After this, they will take an electric toothbrush to brush their teeth. After brushing, they will apply foam or fluoride gel to them. Fluoride helps to prevent tooth decay.  After performing the above-listed steps, our dentist will also give you some tips on after-care. You are expected to perform regular brushing and flossing with the right technique. A professional dental cleaning can be performed both on adults and children.  DENTAL X-RAY When you visit our dentist for a dental examination, they may perform a dental X-ray on your teeth. The procedure includes placing appropriate protective gear to protect you from radiation. You will be given a piece of plastic to bite down. They will now place a scanner outside your mouth to take a picture.  Different dental X-rays are performed during a dental examination to check for oral concerns such as cavities, decay, and other tooth problems.  DENTAL CHECK-UP A dental check-up starts with checking the overall condition of your teeth. If our dentists find something more serious, they carry out an X-ray and look for the signs of cavities, decay, or other problems. They will also check your bite, and upon finding an issue, suitable orthodontic treatment will be suggested.  Dental check-ups also include checking for oral cancer. Here, our dentists examine your jaw, sides of the tongue, inside lips, roof, and floor of your mouth to check for lesions or tumors. In children, dental check-ups are carried out to see if their teeth are developing normally.  Please reach out to our dental practice in Henderson, NV, to have a consultation with our dentist, Dr. Christensen.

  • Root Canal Treatment

    Root canal therapy or endodontic therapy is a dental treatment performed to remove an infection inside your teeth. This treatment also protects your tooth from severe infections in the future. Root canal therapy is carried out in the root canal cavity of your tooth, which involves removing the infected pulp.  WHY IS ROOT CANAL THERAPY PERFORMED?  The pulp of your tooth may get infected due to several causes. The infection doesn’t go away and makes the situation worse by decaying other teeth as well. Root canal therapy is essential to save you from losing your entire tooth.  Some of the signs and symptoms that suggest you may need root canal therapy are bad breath, foul taste in your mouth, swollen gums, sensitivity in the tooth, throbbing pain around your tooth, etc. We advise you to visit our dentists if you experience one or all the symptoms to coin out the problem at the earliest.  WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ROOT CANAL THERAPY?  * Root canal therapy saves you from tooth extractions and helps you get rid of the severe pain you may suffer because of the infected tooth pulp.  * Root canal treatment reduces the infection rate in your mouth.  * The procedure is efficient and cost-effective.  WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE OF ROOT CANAL THERAPY?  1. Our dentist will take your medical history to know about any health complications that you may or may not be suffering from. After this, they will administer an anesthetic to make you feel completely relaxed.  2. We will make a small hole into your tooth to remove the pulp that is infected. With the use of special tools, we will remove the pulp, clean the infection, and disinfect the area.  3. The next step is to cover your tooth using a crown or a filling to keep the infected area from getting reinfected. Hence, you must maintain good aftercare involving brushing and flossing your teeth every day.  WHAT HAPPENS AFTER ROOT CANAL THERAPY?  After your root canal therapy, your tooth may feel sensitive for a few hours. It happens because of the surrounding tissue inflammation. Our dentists recommend you follow the below-listed aftercare suggestions as a part of the root canal therapy:  * Do not chew with the same tooth after your treatment. Eat soft food items such as mashed potatoes, cottage cheese, porridge on the day of the procedure.  * Brush, floss, and use a mouthwash regularly.  * You may take a painkiller on the recommendation of our dentists.  * Be gentle with brushing and flossing your teeth for the first few days after the treatment.  * Make sure you visit our dentists from time to time for regular check-ups and follow-up of the treatment.  Please reach out to our dental practice in Henderson, NV, to have a consultation with our dentist, Dr. Christensen. Please call us at (702) 331-2121 or schedule an online consultation, and we'll guide you further.

  • Non-surgical Gum Treatment

    Gum diseases are caused by bacterial plaque, which occurs due to poor oral hygiene. A thin, sticky layer of microorganisms, known as a biofilm, causes inflammation in the gums, separating them from the teeth. Several tiny spaces known as periodontal pockets are formed that offer a sheltered environment for the pathogenic bacteria to reproduce. If left untreated, it spreads further into the bone that supports the teeth, eventually causing tooth loss. At Christensen Dental, we offer a variety of non-surgical gum treatments to our patients. During the early stages, we prefer non-surgical procedures. However, in more advanced stages, we recommend surgery.  The common symptoms indicating the need for non-surgical gum disease treatment include: * Bad taste and bad breath * Red and irritated gum tissue * Dull and uneven gum line * Bleeding gums * Gaps between gums and teeth * Changes in the bite or position of your teeth PERIO-PROTECT Perio-Protect is a comprehensive approach to address the bacteria that cause gum disease. It provides gum disease management and promotes a healthy oral balance. HOW DOES THE PERIO PROTECT TRAY WORK? The Perio Tray reaches deep into the periodontal pockets and applies medication to the infected gum tissue. The medication solutions used include oxygenating and oxidizing agents and are customized for individual patient needs. Our dentist will take measurements and impressions of your mouth and send them to the dental lab. The lab will then customize an internal seal for each Perio Tray. Once ready, you can put medication directly in this Perio Tray and wear it for several minutes each day. The actual duration and frequency of use vary based on individual patient needs. We recommend using the Perio Tray-based on your periodontist’s advice. You can start with 2 to 3 Perio Tray applications each day for about 10 to 15 minutes. Once the bleeding decreases and the infection gets under control, its usage drops to one time per day. Consult your dentist to know when to reduce the use of your Perio Tray. The daily use of these Perio trays for the application of medication to the gums prevents the disease-causing bacteria from recolonizing and enables the gums to heal faster. ADVANTAGES OF PERIO PROTECT TRAY The Perio Tray offers several advantages as a gum disease treatment device, such as: * It is a more comfortable and effective alternative to apply medication deep below the gums.  * It helps patients avoid the excessive use of systemic antibiotics.  * The Perio Tray is not technique-sensitive and is easy to use. The patient simply needs to add medication and place it accurately in the mouth.  * It offers a comprehensive treatment of biofilms underneath the gums.
