Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign clear braces are completely invisible, removable, and treatment can be completed in as little as a few weeks for minor cosmetic problems using Invisalign Express. Usually, treatment time is comparable to treatment with traditional braces.
This comfortable and convenient technology doesn’t cause dental scarring or mouth lesions that often result from wire and bracket braces. Because you can take them out for cleanings or special occasions, Invisalign aligners allow more control over your oral hygiene and flexibility in your treatment process. They’re perfect for discerning adults. And with Invisalign Teen, teenagers can take advantage of this comfortable and convenient treatment. Removable aligners mean less risk of injuries when participating in sports, and of course their near invisibility makes them perfect for the high-pressure social life of high school.
Receding gums are unattractive and uncomfortable. They expose the tooth root, which is a darker color than the enamel of the tooth crown. Receding gums can make your teeth look crooked, even if they ‘re really straight. And receding gums make your teeth sensitive.
In the past, correcting receding gums required highly invasive surgery, but the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique allows us to correct your receding gums with a shorter recovery time and less discomfort. If you are looking for the most modern and comfortable way to correct your receding gums.
If you have tooth decay, you want to get it treated so it’s healthy and looks good. You don’t want a smile that shows everyone you have had decay, and may even look worse than the cavities themselves. And most of all, you don’t want fillings that may be dangerous or damaging to your teeth. Metal fillings are unattractive and potentially unhealthy, but there is another option. White fillings are more attractive and can actually restore strength to your teeth.
General anesthesia is the strongest form of anesthesia to help if you are extremely anxious about dental work or if very invasive dental work is required. If you cannot stand the thought of dental work, won’t be able to sit still for the procedure, or if it’s anticipated that the dental work may otherwise be unbearable, general anesthesia can put you in a sleep state for the entire length of the procedure. When considering general anesthesia, safety should be a foremost concern, and it is vital that your dentist is fully licensed and equipped to perform the procedure. Few dentists in Las Vegas are licensed to perform general anesthesia, so be sure to ask.
Routine exams, teeth cleaning, and daily oral hygiene can prevent tooth decay and other troublesome dental conditions. Regular dental checkups are important because they allow us to find problems and resolve them before they escalate. The mouth is a doorway to the entire body, so keeping your teeth and gums healthy will promote overall health. We recommend professional hygiene visits every six months to maintain optimal oral and general health.
Has your dentist recommended an invasive, expensive, or irreversible dental treatment? They’re probably right, but it’s best to get a second opinion before committing to any major dental procedure. It’s also best to seek a second opinion if your recommended treatment isn’t giving you the results you want, or if you feel your dentist neglected important symptoms in making their recommendation. Don’t worry about offending your dentist. They are a medical professional and understand that getting a second opinion is a routine part of medical practice.
If you are a snorer, you might not think it’s anything more than a nuisance. But it can be serious, and may even be a sign of a potentially life-threatening condition. People who sleep with snorers may lose more than an hour of sleep every night, which can lead to health problems and increased conflict in a relationship. Snoring can also be a sign of sleep apnea, which can lead to premature death through heart disease, stroke, or car and workplace accidents.
If you snore regularly, don’t ignore it. We can help you get tested for sleep apnea, or find a more comfortable treatment option if you’ve already been diagnosed but don’t like CPAP.
Do you need a porcelain veneer, dental crown, or bridge and don’t want to wait two weeks for a dental lab to produce one? Do you want to avoid wearing an unattractive temporary crown or bridge that can fail? Do you like the idea of getting your dental crown designed and manufactured by expert Summerlin cosmetic dentist Dr. James B. Polley? If so, then CEREC same-day dentistry can help you. Using this advanced CAD/CAM technology, we can get your dental restorations manufactured for you while you wait.
Periodontal disease, commonly called gum disease, accounts for 75% of adult tooth loss in the United States, and new research has linked it to systemic health problems, like heart disease and stroke. Don’t ignore gums that are inflamed, red, or bleeding. Putting off treatment can lead to permanent illness or damage to your teeth and bones.
Fortunately, periodontal therapy can eliminate and often reverse damage and risks associated with periodontal disease.
If you fear going to the dentist, experience unpleasant gagging sensations, have trouble getting numb, or need multiple procedures done in one sitting, oral sedation dentistry can make your experience relaxing and rewarding. Dr. Polley will review your medical history to determine if you are a candidate for sedation dentistry, then he will answer your questions and tell you what to expect. Sedation dentistry allows fearful, nervous, or anxious patients to receive the dental care they need and deserve.
Dental implants are a modern innovation that allows us to replace your missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function just like natural teeth. No one will be able to tell you’ve lost teeth–and you won’t notice the loss, either. You’ll be able to smile with confidence, speak clearly, and eat all the foods you enjoyed with your natural teeth. And there will be no additional hassle, either–just brush, floss, and make your regular dental appointments.
Have you always thought cavities were just a part of life? They don’t have to be. Like most bacterial infections, cavities are 100% preventable. With CariFree, a xylitol-based topical treatment, Dr. Polley can help you stop cavities from ever forming, which will save you time, money, discomfort, and preserve more natural tooth structure.
If you think you’ve done everything in your power to prevent cavities but they keep showing up, we can help. By supplementing your regular oral hygiene with CariFree, we can effectively reduce the number of cavities you experience.
If you have lost one or more teeth, replacing them is essential to preserving your oral health and the attractiveness of your smile. Dentures are the oldest tooth replacement technology, but modern options are more comfortable and natural in appearance than older types.
Your smile reflects your unique personality. We won’t compromise your individuality with generic cosmetic dentistry treatments. Oftentimes, multiple procedures are required to achieve the results you desire. Summerlin dentist, Dr. Polley will listen to your ideas and expectations, then discuss smile makeover options that will maintain your smile’s uniqueness.
A smile makeover is a highly customized procedure. The best way to learn what a smile makeover would be like for you is to talk to Dr. Polley in person.
Discolored teeth are one of the most common complaints people have about their smile. Discoloration can be caused by food and drink with staining compounds in them, smoking, or just age. Other times, staining may be caused by problems in the tooth itself, which may require a different treatment.
We can evaluate your smile and recommend the right teeth whitening treatment for you.
Of all the methods available today for changing and improving the look of your smile, Dental veneers are among the most popular and successful with our patients. One veneer can be used to restore a damaged tooth, or several veneers placed in the smile zone can enhance your entire image.
The transformations that we can achieve with Dental veneers can be miraculous. Now anyone can have the smile they’ve always wanted.
With modern advances in reconstructive dentistry, there’s no reason why you have to live with damage to your teeth. From a small cavity to a missing tooth, we have treatments that can restore your teeth to their beautiful and functional best. If you are unhappy with the state of your smile, even if it’s suffered serious damage or decay, it’s likely that reconstructive dentistry has a solution for you.
This page describes some of the more common problems we see in reconstructive dentistry, and the solutions available for them. However, the best way to know what treatment might be right for you is to schedule an appointment.
Whether you’re looking for a dental home for checkups and hygiene, some improvements like teeth whitening or implant therapy, or a little relaxing sedation to ease you through your visit, Dr. Polley can help. You’ll be amazed at how we can recreate your smile with contemporary cosmetic dentistry.

The best dental experience ever
The girls are so pleasant. Michael, the hygienist was considerate and gentle and gave me me a painless deep root cleaning.
Dr. Polley gave me the most thorough dental exam. He put no pressure on me to get anything done. He just laid out the facts and left it up to me. I’all be recommending this office to everyone.
I've been a patient of Dr Polley's for over 15 years. I've had all my preventative maintenance done regularly with him. But unfortunately I've had a lot of chemotherapy in my lifetime and it has adversely affected my dental health over the years. Luckily I found Dr Polley who has done everything from fillings, to pulling teeth, to putting in Crowns for me when needed. He has really kept my dental health in tip top shape considering the challenges my dental issues present to a dentist. He listens, he addresses your concerns, and he truly cares about your dental health and comfort. 5 Stars
Dr. Polley is a very caring and takes his time, and always makes you feel comfortable. Also has a great staff. Office is very clean and comfy.
This office is absolutely beautiful and it's like no other office I have been in.
Let me start off by saying when u walk in u feel like u r in your own home.
Sarah will come out and greet u right away and she makes u feel like u are part of their family.
You take a seat maybe wait 5 mins. and Mike the hygienist will be out to get u and take u back. He makes u feel very comfortable, as well as in the chair. He is gentle and takes his time with his patients.
If u r looking for an office that treat u like family and does not rush u out of the office this is the office for u.
The rest of the staff Charlotte and Lara are so sweet as well and let's not forget the most important person u will see in this office Dr. Polley.
I would say Dr. Polley is a perfectionist. He wants to make sure ur smile is the right smile for u and if u r not happy he will fix that for u.
U will have the best smile of ur life after leaving this office.
Before I went to Dr. Polley I never, ever wanted to smile. Now I never stop I want people to see my beautiful smile that Dr. Polley gave me. He even put my picture up on his wall with a few other patients. That made my day even more special.
You could not ask for a better dentist and staff in town.
Dr. Polley and his exceptional team are truly one of a kind! In a town where it is difficult to find honest medical and dental care, Dr. Polley is genuine and a great artist. His staff will welcome and treat you like family the minute you walk through the door; ensure your comfort throughout your visit. Dr. Polley is, hands down, THE BEST DENTIST IN LAS VEGAS!!
I am so happy to have found Dr. Polley and his staff! Dr. Polley is the best dentist in town! I have been a patient for many years and I started at 56% gum healthiness to 98% gum healthiness! I have had fillings by Dr Polley and have never had any problems afterwards. Emily is a terrific dental hygienist! She's gentle and really takes the time to educate you on your gum health, etc.. Sarah is always warm and friendly when scheduling my appointments! The office is very clean and nicely decorated to give you a very cozy feeling. I never leave disappointed with their service.
Dr. Polley and his staff are the absolute BEST. I've never had to wait for an appointment, and am always made to feel welcome and at home. Teeth cleanings are an absolute breeze and seem to somehow be more thorough, and yet take less time, than those I've had at other dentist offices in the Valley. Dr. Polley always takes his time with me, carefully and clearly explaining any issues that he sees and thoughtfully answering all of my questions. I never feel rushed, uncomfortable, or like I'm being up-sold in their office—which is why, even after having switched insurance companies, I still make a point to see Dr. Polley and pay out-of-pocket for a teeth cleaning (rather than going somewhere else that would be cheaper). The staff's experience, expertise, and efficiency make it absolutely worth it.
Nice office, clean and modern environment. Friendly staff, very professional and I got the feeling everyone cared about their work (not always the case at other dentists in town).
A little pricey but you get what you pay for.
I’m not a fan of going to the dentist so giving a good review is saying something. Dr Polley explained everything and was very gentle. His whole team is great and very caring. I’m so glad I finally found a great dentist in Las Vegas.
We have been going to Dr. Polley for over 6 years for our routine care as well as for a trouble tooth. One of the scariest things is a trouble tooth. Dr. Polley fixed it immediately and rendered it a forgettable experience...which is what you want! We count on he and his staff to take good care of us and they always do.
Dr. Polley and his highly trained staff have been my families choice for our dental needs for over five years. The comfortable environment, professionalism of his staff, and the dedication to improved dental health for me and my family are just some of the reasons he continues to be our "provider of choice". Thank you Dr Polley!
