Help! My Dental Crown in Murray Came Off!

repair broken dental crown in Murray

You are chewing an apple and hear a strange sound, then something in your mouth feels wrong. You realize that one of your dental crowns has come off. Chances are, the crown can be re-cemented, which could potentially save you hundreds of dollars. What do you do when your dental crown in Murray comes off? It’s vital that you take the following steps:

Don’t Swallow It!
This may seem like a fairly obvious tip, but we are mentioning it because it is essential. Carefully take the dental crown out of your mouth. If you accidentally swallow it, you will have some extra issues that aren’t very pleasant.

Look Carefully
Inspect the crown and your tooth in the mirror. If there is damage to either, Dr. Blackwood and his team of professionals will need that information.

Call Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS
We will schedule you an appointment ASAP and advise you on whether you should use temporary cement to re-attach the dental crown in Murray until you can get into Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS and have it permanently re-cemented.

Clean Gently
Use a toothbrush to very carefully clean the crown and the unprotected partial tooth. Do not put too much pressure on the tooth and be as gentle as possible. You don’t want to cause any damage to the tooth.

Handle With Care
While waiting for the crown to be re-cemented, forego substances that are chewy, sticky, or crunchy. Avoid snacks, candy, chips, and gum. Try to eat things that are soft or that are mostly liquid.

We hope this post has been informative for you. If you would like more information on taking care of your dental crown in Murray, give us a call at 801-938-8855. At Salt Lake Dental Care, our practice offers a variety of dental services such as dental implants, dental veneers, and wisdom teeth extraction. We look forward to hearing from you.

We Treat You Like Royalty At Salt Lake Dental Care

Salt Lake Dental Care

When Dr. Clint Blackwood crowns one of our patients, the coronation is a celebration of a stronger smile. The necessity of a dental crown is usually readily apparent. Based on how much tooth is available to hold in a filling, sometimes a crown is needed to add more support and to keep the tooth from falling apart or breaking. Crowns are also necessary as a sturdy support for dental bridges.

A crown restores your tooth to normal shape, size and strength, and allows it to resume its proper place as a team player with the other teeth.

Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS, located at 279 E 5900 S Ste 202 in Murray, Utah 84107, opened their doors in 2005 and has been serving patients throughout Utah with extraordinary efficiency, expertise and personal attention. You could be our next royal to smile and wave for the paparazzi.

Consult with Dr. Blackwood to find out if you are a candidate for innovative restorative procedures meant to increase the life of your precious permanent teeth such as a fabulous crown. Keep in mind that crowns come in a variety of strong, reliable materials. Matching the natural color of your teeth increases the beauty of your smile. Gold crowns are incredibly strong and have the “bling” factor, but there are certainly other options.

In addition to restorative services, we would love to meet with you about cleanings, cosmetic services, teeth whitening, braces, veneers, and other smile makeover possibilities. At Salt Lake Dental Care, we are equipped to offer teeth whitening, wisdom teeth removal, porcelain veneers, Invisalign and a long list of other procedures. Schedule your visit today with our high-quality staff at 801-938-8855. A crown can return your tooth to all its former glory as a smiling, glowing, expert chewing machine.

Bridging The Gap

cosmetic dental Murray

Do you have a missing tooth that is detracting from your otherwise beautiful teeth? Let Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS fill the gap for you and help you get your stunning smile back! A dental bridge could be the perfect answer for your missing tooth and help you chew and speak properly.

A bridge includes two or more crowns on either side of the gap created by your missing tooth. These two anchoring teeth permit a false tooth to be held in place where the missing tooth should be. The false tooth that is placed in the gap is called a pontic. Bridges can contain one or more pontics. A pontic can be matched to the surrounding teeth if you select a porcelain material. If you’d like, a pontic can also be produced using gold or an alloy.

Dr. Blackwood will work closely with you to make sure that your bridge has a precise fit. Then one of our proficient hygienists will show you how to clean under and around the bridge to ensure that no cavities develops in the nooks and crannies.

Dr. Blackwood has been successfully restoring smiles since 2005. Thousands of patients have trusted our practice with their dental health.

Come see us at Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS and you can bridge the gap and love your smile again!

Crowning Achievements In Dentistry

dental crowns Salt Lake City

Today’s message looks at one of the miracles of modern dentistry: the dental restoration.

Let’s pretend you are a biomedical engineer working in the field of dentistry before the conception of dental restorations. The men and women of your generation who have missing or damaged teeth want to repair or replace them with a man-made substitute. You have been hired to find or create a material that can be used to fabricate fillings, crowns, and dental bridges.

Consider the physical and chemical requirements of this incredible material. It must tolerate forces of 162 pounds per square inch (PSI), hundreds of times a day – day after day, year after year. It must be resistant to cracking and chipping. But there’s a catch regarding its strength; it must not impair the enamel on opposing teeth. This material must also maintain its size and shape and be resistant to shrinking.

It must be bondable to living tooth structure as well as other materials necessary for specific appliances. It must be biocompatible with the soft tissues in the mouth as well as tooth enamel, dentin, and bone. It can’t trigger allergic reactions in the wearers. It must be corrosion-resistant to the chemicals in saliva, foods, and beverages. It must resist infection regardless of ever-present bacteria in the mouth. And it can’t contain toxic chemicals that could be absorbed into the bloodstream.

And we haven’t even touched on the artistic properties yet. Ideally, this incredible material would look exactly like teeth in color, opacity, and translucence.

Of course, we know that such an entity exists because dental restorations have been around for a long time. At this time, there are multiple materials used alone or in combination including porcelain, ceramic, and metals such as gold and silver amalgam. Though the metals are uncommonly strong and malleable, they don’t meet some patient’s esthetic requirements and are used mainly for back teeth.

It is interesting to note that porcelain, one of the prime materials used in modern restorations, was developed over 2000 years ago in China.

I wonder if the ancient Chinese porcelain originators who developed the techniques for molding, firing, and painting the beautiful tableware and vases revered around the world ever imagined that their invention would live beautifully in the mouths of millions of people more than twenty centuries later!

Crown Or Veneer?

cosmetic dentistry Murray

I am Clint Blackwood of Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS in Murray.  Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS offers multiple cosmetic dental procedures for creating unforgettable smiles. Two of the most popular procedures are dental crowns and porcelain veneers. Many patients don’t understand the difference between the two. Generally, a crown strengthens a compromised tooth while a veneer is used mainly for cosmetic improvements.

A dental crown covers the entire visible part of the tooth. A veneer is an ultra-thin layer for the front of a tooth. Veneers are made with several layers of extremely strong ceramic laminate. Crowns can be made of all porcelain (ceramic), porcelain fused to metal, or gold. Both crowns and veneers are affixed to the tooth with special adhesive. Crowns and veneers are durable and can last many years if properly cared for, though they are not stronger than natural enamel.

Both of these procedures improve the tooth aesthetically, but dental crowns are generally a better solution for a tooth that has been compromised by decay, damage, or a root canal. Veneers can repair the shape of a tooth, fix a minor crack, cover stains, or straighten the appearance of teeth that are slightly misaligned.

The success of a crown or veneer procedure depends on experienced professionals at the lab and in the dentist’s office. Your cosmetic dentist must prep the tooth, create a precision mold, and submit an accurate order to the lab.

The role of the dental lab technician is equally vital.  Highly skilled lab technicians fabricate custom dental crowns and veneers to the specifications of the cosmetic dentist. They must have the expertise to meet the precise standards needed for successful restorations.

Consider the myriad characteristics of a restoration: the precise shape, the specific size, the precise color, and the proper placement in the mouth. This is a case of all or nothing – each variable must be right on the mark or it must be redone.

The team at Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS and the remarkable staff at our dental lab work together to provide the highest quality dental restorations for our valued patients.

If you would like more helpful information about crowns, veneers, and other cosmetic dental procedures, I invite you to reach out to us to schedule a cosmetic dental consultation. I can help you achieve a smile that is both healthy and sensational. Call 801-938-8855 today!
