Dental Implants
Replace Missing Teeth

When your smile is sporting noticeable gaps where teeth once were, it’s time to pursue a quality reconstructive solution – and dental implants are truly second to none! Because dental implants replicate your tooth’s entire natural structure, they provide greater health benefits and longer-lasting durability than their traditional counterparts. Better yet, Dr. Thomas has the advanced training needed to both surgically place and restore your implants right here in his Sparks, NV dental office for maximum patient convenience.

SureSmile technology uses clear, custom-made aligners that blend in with your teeth while worn, allowing you to enjoy your life to the fullest while you’re achieving the look of your dreams.

You Asked, We Answered!

Whether you’re interested in learning about the technology we use, what to expect at your first appointment, or if your dental insurance will cover the treatment you’re interested in, don’t hesitate to reach out to our Sparks dental team – we want to help! Of course, getting on the phone isn’t always convenient, which is why we’ve dedicated this next section to answering FAQs.

How much does a dental checkup & cleaning cost in Sparks?

You might be surprised how many factors go into the cost of your routine dental checkup and teeth cleaning, including if we need to take X-rays and if you have dental insurance. With that said, the average price in the U.S. is between $200 and $350. Again, there’s a chance that your out-of-pocket expenses will be significantly lower (or completely non-existent) depending on if you’re a part of our in-house plan or you are currently insured. Ultimately, the best way to find out the cost is by giving us a call.

What do you do if you can't afford a dentist?

Whether you need a specialty treatment to rebuild your smile, like dental implants, or you’re simply overdue for your six-month dental checkup, the last thing we want is for the cost to stand in your way. In other words, don’t hesitate to ask our Sparks dental team about the financial solutions we offer if you’re worried that your care will be too expensive. Between dental insurance, flexible financing, and our very own dental plan, we can work with patients with all sorts of budgets.

What level of education is required to be a dentist?

Many patients are aware that becoming a dentist requires years and years of schooling, but they aren’t exactly sure what that entails. Basically, the aspiring dentist needs to first earn their bachelor’s degree and apply to an accredited dental school in the U.S. Once they are accepted, they begin rigorous in-classroom and hands on training on preventive care, restorative dentistry, and more. This culminates in a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or a Doctor of Dental Sciences (DDS) degree. At this point, they can officially begin their career since they have their license. In order to maintain it, they need to take continuing education hours and pursue advanced training each year. In short, becoming a dentist requires 7+ years of schooling as well as a lifelong commitment to continuing education.


Whether you’re interested in a cosmetic dental service, like veneers , you need immediate treatment from a skilled emergency dentist , or you’re simply overdue for your six-month checkup, you can turn to our dental team – we’re here to help.
