Have you ever dreamed of having a gorgeous smile by changing imperfections in your teeth or gums? With advances in cosmetic dentistry, attaining that perfect smile can be your reality. Renowned Las Vegas cosmetic dentist Dr. Matthew Wilson provides customized consultations with each patient who desires to have a perfect smile, detailing each treatment necessary to achieve their desired results. During your consultation, we will assess your oral health, medical history, and desires for an improved smile to determine if you are an ideal candidate for cosmetic dentistry.

Make a good first impression

Studies show that a smile is the first thing most people notice about others. With that being said, how do you feel about your smile? Do you hide it or rarely smile? Are you worried about dating, because you feel embarrassed about your smile? For some individuals, their smile could be holding them back from living life. Do not let that be you! Instead, Dr. Wilson can give you the smile of your dreams!  

Our Philosophy

At Inspire Dental of Summerlin, we value your oral health. Cosmetic dentistry is, of course, about the look of a smile, but at our office it is much more than that. We consider the patient’s overall health, oral health, and smile concerns to ensure we provide not only outstanding results but results that are functional as well. This means that if other oral health concerns are discovered, these issues should be taken care of first, before proceeding with cosmetic dentistry. This saves the patient time and money in the long run by not having to repeat procedures later on.

More than just looks

Oral health concerns such as gum disease may affect the outcome of your cosmetic dentistry if not treated first. For example, if a patient is suffering from severe stages of periodontal disease, yet they want a full set of veneers to transform their smile, the results will probably not last as long as it could unless the gum disease is taken care of first. This is why a full assessment of the patient’s oral health is important when considering cosmetic dentistry.

For patients with seemingly healthy teeth, you are likely an ideal candidate for cosmetic dentistry. Keep in mind, however, that it is important to discuss your complete health and oral health history with your dentist before undergoing cosmetic dentistry.

What is good oral health?

In general, good oral health means no active tooth decay, gum disease, or any other problem that may affect the outcome of your cosmetic dentistry. However, it is not uncommon for people to develop cavities. We simply would treat any active tooth decay first, before completing cosmetic treatments.

Common cosmetic issues:

Let’s face it – many of us do not have a perfect smile. Thankfully, with cosmetic dentistry, you can achieve a smile that is worthy of Hollywood!

Not sure what you need to fix your smile? Do not worry! Cosmetic dentistry treatments are chosen based on your individual need.

How to pay for your cosmetic dental procedures

Cosmetic dentistry may seem out of reach for some patients, given the upfront cost of most procedures. Since cosmetic dentistry is not cheap, we want to make a way for our patients to have the smile that they desire, without the headache of finances. We offer a variety of payment options, including low monthly payments that are interest-free.
