Cosmetic Dentistry – Las Vegas, NV
Enhance Your Smile and Discover New Confidence
We all want noticeably brighter, younger smiles, but not many of us can achieve dazzling results on our own. At the Summerlin Center for Aesthetic Dentistry, Dr. Pamela West and our team work hard every day to help patients improve the appearance of their teeth so they can go home feeling confident. We do that by providing high-quality cosmetic dentistry services designed to whiten, brighten, straighten, and smooth teeth that are stained, misaligned, or otherwise imperfect.
Why Choose the Summerlin Center for Aesthetic Dentistry for Cosmetic Dentistry?
- Cosmetic dentist in Summerlin with extensive training
- Natural-looking results
- Treatment tailored to your preferences
Of the dental treatments offered at the Summerlin Center for Aesthetic Dentistry, teeth whitening is one of the most popular. Dr. West offers two options for teeth whitening: in-office and at-home. In-office whitening is ideal for individuals who want fast results, and at-home whitening is a perfect fit for those who want to transform their smile more gradually. Both can provide patients with the dazzling, professional results they want.
Porcelain veneers are the go-to cosmetic dentistry treatment of many celebrities. They are thin, custom-designed pieces of porcelain that Dr. West can attach to the fronts of your teeth to disguise all of their aesthetic flaws. Veneers can hide stains, cracks, chips, minor misalignment, and more. The porcelain is stain-resistant and is almost indistinguishable from natural tooth enamel. The treatment usually takes just two appointments in our office, and its results can last for well over a decade.
Cosmetic Gum Reshaping
If you have uneven or excess gum tissue, you have what is commonly referred to as a “gummy smile.” Dr. West can gently trim your gums in a way that reveals more of your teeth’s structure, thus providing you with a more proportionate smile. The soft tissue laser that she uses to carry out this procedure is extremely precise. It also minimizes bleeding, maximizes patient comfort, and contributes to a quick recovery period.
Is your smile marred by missing teeth? A dental implant can replace the root of any lost tooth. After the implant bonds with your body, Dr. West, your dentist in Summerlin, will finish filling in your smile by placing a custom-made crown on top of it. These crowns are made out of high-quality materials that closely resemble natural tooth enamel. They are also extremely sturdy. You might forget you ever had any missing teeth in the first place!
All-on-4 Dental Implants
If you have lost all or most of your teeth throughout one of your dental arches, Dr. West can help you regain a beautiful, natural-looking smile with All-on-4 dental implants. As few as four dental implants will be inserted into your bone. On the same day as your surgery, you will receive a temporary denture to go on top of them. Later, Dr. West will design a permanent denture that will look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.

Does my dental insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?
Typically, dental insurance holders don’t pay for cosmetic dentistry. However, the lines have begun to blur between what is considered restorative and cosmetic care. Thus, if a cosmetic treatment is deemed necessary to restore your oral health, your insurance may cover a portion of the cost. To ensure you get the maximum available coverage, our office will work on your behalf with the insurance company.
Can a teenager benefit from cosmetic dentistry?
Thankfully, if your teenager is unhappy with his or her smile, there are some cosmetic treatments that are suitable for that age-group. Some possible options are clear aligners, direct bonding and teeth whitening. It all starts with visiting Dr. West for an initial consultation to make sure that the safest and most effective route is taken.
How long will the process take?
The ultimate determinant of your treatment time will be the type of care you undergo. If you’re receiving dental bonding, you’ll only need to visit once to get the results you’re looking for. However, to have porcelain veneers placed, it will usually take two to three visits to complete. When you meet with your cosmetic dentist in Las Vegas for your consultation, she’ll map out a treatment plan and inform you of all the pertinent details so you can plan accordingly.
Is cosmetic dentistry right for me?
Your oral health is always the first priority. Therefore, you’ll need to be infection-free to be eligible for any cosmetic dental procedure. If you have an existing issue, though, it’s not the end of the world. Dr. West can provide the care needed to restore your dental health, so you can move forward with achieving the smile you’ve always wanted.
