Traditionally, most dental schools do not teach cosmetic dentistry. In order for a dentist to become skilled in treatments for cosmetic dentistry, a dentist must attend training on their own accord. The Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI) is a post-graduate teaching facility of cosmetic dentistry and is the most premier facility in North America. LVI also focuses on extensive training in the principles and techniques of neuromuscular dentistry.
What is the LVI difference?
At LVI, dentists are taught to treat patients as unique individuals, which is an important philosophy at LVI, in that every smile is different from the rest. Therefore, it’s important your dentist develop a specially designed treatment plan that addresses your specific needs while considering your goals for aesthetically pleasing results. That is why we take the time to listen to your questions, concerns, and goals related to a healthier, more beautiful smile. We want to be sure we not only solve your dental problems, but also provide you with outstanding results.
LVI is more than just cosmetic dentistry.
Graduates of LVI are also trained in the principles of neuromuscular dentistry and how to incorporate this approach to treatment. Neuromuscular dentistry provides a more comprehensive approach to treatment in which the patients overall health and alignment of the teeth and jaw are also considered as part of the treatment of teeth and gums. When a dentist is able to treat your entire mouth effectively, using the neuromuscular dentistry approach, underlying dental issues will also be addressed. This approach also allows us to preserve your existing dental health, create beautiful, long-lasting restorations, and ensure proper alignment with your jaw and teeth. As an LVI dentist, we’re not only treating the obvious issues in your mouth, but underlying issues as well, which result in more effective, long-lasting treatment you can be proud of.
