What Are Your Cosmetic Dentistry Options?

  • Porcelain Veneers and DURAthins: Porcelain veneers are incredibly versatile cosmetic dentistry tools. They can instantly correct chips, cracks, deep staining and discoloration, and misaligned or misshapen teeth. Your cosmetic imperfections may require traditional porcelain veneers, or minimally invasive DURAthins veneers, to achieve that picture perfect smile.
  • Professional Teeth Whitening: Dr. Nelson offers Boost! professional teeth whitening in-office, and as an easy take-home teeth whitening method. Boost! professional teeth whitening is safe for sensitive gums, and can instantly remove years of staining and discoloration to whiten your teeth by several shades.
  • Invisalign Orthodontics Treatment: Invisalign clear aligners are the perfect orthodontics solution for busy teens and adults. Invisalign incrementally repositions your teeth without the lengthy treatment time or inconvenience of traditional “bracket and wires” braces. You can also easily remove them at any time to clean your teeth or enjoy your favorite foods. And because the aligners are nearly invisible, hardly anyone will even notice you’re undergoing treatment.
  • Six Month Smiles Orthodontics Treatment: Six Month Smiles orthodontic treatment can correct your misalignment problems in a fraction of the time required by traditional orthodontics treatments. Six Month Smiles only focuses on correcting the most noticeable portions of your teeth. It’s the fastest and most cosmetically driven form of orthodontics treatment, designed specifically for patients with minor malocclusion and bite problems.

Many cosmetic dentistry procedures can be completed in just one office visit, and require little if any anesthetic. Don’t put off your smile make-over any longer. Dr. Nelson will work with you to find a cosmetic solution that completes your smile wish list and falls within your budget.

Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants

Feeling confident in your smile is very important in feeling confident in the way you look overall. Having a beautiful, flawless smile is something that many people strive for, as it is a sign of vitality and health. If you are not secure in your smile, it can affect the way you feel about yourself as well as affect the way you interact with the people around you. Having teeth missing from your smile is never an easy thing to deal with, and Dr. Jay A. Nelson wants to give his patients the smile of their dreams. By offering dental implants to his patients, Dr. Nelson is able to restore smiles and confidence!

One of the reasons why replacing missing teeth is so important is because it not only affects your oral health, but the health of your body. When left untreated, having teeth missing from your smile can result in bone loss, a misaligned bite, TMJ, and your teeth shifting in order to make up for the extra space. If you have teeth missing from your smile, it is important to address the situation immediately. It is also important to have a consultation with Dr. Nelson to make sure you are a candidate for dental implants.

Dr. Nelson will refer you to a dental implant specialist who will embed titanium screws into your jaw bone. These screws will take the place of a tooth root, and will fuse with your bone over time, establishing a solid foundation for your new smile. After the right amount of healing time has passed, Dr. Nelson will place a tooth-resembling crown on top of your implant, completing your new look! Dental implants also support multiple-tooth prosthetics, partials, dentures, and bridges. If you would like to restore your smile using dental implants, contact our office today!

If you are ready to make an appointment with Dr. Jay A. Nelson, contact our office today! We are able to take care of all of your general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry needs. We are proud to serve patients from New Tampa, Wesley Chapel, Land O’Lakes, and surrounding Florida areas.

Periodontal Disease Therapy with Dr. Nelson!

Many people do not know that their gums are very crucial in making sure they have a healthy, beautiful smile. In order to have any sort of healthy result, no matter what it is, it is important to have a healthy foundation to build on. Because your gums are the foundation to your smile, it is important to make sure it is the healthiest it can be. When your gums are compromised, it can yield damaging results. Because Dr. Jay A. Nelson wants his patients to have the best smile possible, he offers periodontal disease therapy to his patients.

One of the reasons why untreated periodontal disease is so dangerous is because it has the potential to affect more than your smile. If not tackled soon, periodontal disease can contribute to stroke, heart disease, tooth loss, bone loss, osteoporosis, dementia, and much more. Some signs of periodontal disease are red, swollen gums, gums that bleed when you brush or floss, and gums that are sensitive to the touch. If you are suffering from any of these effects, contact Dr. Nelson as soon as possible.

One of the ways we treat your periodontal disease is with scaling and root planing. This allows us to remove the harmful bacteria from under the gum line, as well as smooth out any rough spots on your tooth’s root. We will also give you some antibiotic therapy in order to fight off the infection. For advanced stages of periodontal disease, we will perform laser treatment with Periolase. This way, we are able to remove the bacteria as well as promote your gum’s reattachment to your tooth. If you are wanting Dr. Nelson to take care of your periodontal disease, make an appointment at our office, and we would love to help!

If you are ready to make an appointment with Dr. Jay A. Nelson, contact our office today! We are able to take care of all of your general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry needs.

Well, everyone at Nelson Dentistry is here to tell you nothing could be further from the truth! By taking advantage of our root canal therapy, you will be able to experience a world of relief and healthy smiling!

There are many reasons why someone would need to get a root canal; pesky fillings, a large cavity, tooth injury, etcetera can all be means of getting a root canal. The process of getting a root canal begins with our experienced Dr. Jay Nelson taking a good look at your smile. He will be able to see where the infected tooth is, and begin working on it before it gets any worse. The Dr. Nelson begins with accessing the unhealthy tooth, and removing the decaying pulp. They will then fill the tooth, and put a crown on the tooth to prevent it from further damage and to keep bothersome bacteria out. In the end, you’re left feeling relieved and pain free!

Even though root canal therapy has been cast in a negative light throughout the years, many patients say the entire process is either pain free, or feels like a normal filling does. Plus, your smile will be a lot healthier at the end of the procedure, leading to a healthier you! So please, don’t let negative rumors keep you from taking care of your dental needs.
