How Do Porcelain Veneers in Murray Create Stunning Smiles?

porcelain veneers in murrayPorcelain veneers in Murray have a multitude of applications for cosmetic dentistry. With veneers, you can transform your smile without significant restorative dental work.

Is your tooth enamel worn and thin? Tooth-colored porcelain veneers in Murray have the brilliance and translucency of healthy tooth enamel. Many Salt Lake City dental patients have received veneers to cover worn enamel. Some believe they look twenty years younger!

Restoring Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers

Have your teeth developed uneven edges? Tooth grinding, natural wear, and other factors can roughen tooth edges. Veneers are a minimally invasive correction for uneven tooth edges.

Do you have chips or cracks in your teeth? If your teeth are otherwise healthy, porcelain veneers in Murray provide a flawless tooth surface. Are your teeth yellow or gray? Veneers can fix that too! Veneers can be fabricated in any shade to perk up your smile while still blending naturally with your other teeth and skin tones.

Porcelain veneers in Murray are paper-thin, tooth-shaped covers that are affixed to the front of teeth. Traditional veneers required the removal of a thin layer of tooth structure.

Veneers are strong, natural looking, and one of the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedures in Taylorsville and Draper. Of course, for some patients, a tooth with extensive damage may need a dental crown.

Cosmetic Dentistry in Salt Lake City: Gum Contouring and More

Cosmetic Dentistry in Salt Lake City: Gum Contouring

If you are a regular visitor to our blog here at Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS, you have probably read many articles on cosmetic dentistry in Salt Lake City. Well, here’s our two cents on the subject of cosmetic dentistry in Salt Lake City.

Bonding and Restorations

With dental bonding, crowns, and porcelain veneers, we can take care of teeth that are chipped, broken, or misshapen. Our Salt Lake City patients with stained or dull teeth can have a sparkly white smile with teeth whitening. For ordinary cavities, there are tooth-colored fillings, inlays, and onlays.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are gaining popularity in Salt Lake City among dental patients who want to restore missing teeth. If your teeth are misaligned, there are a number of orthodontic options here at Salt Lake Dental Care with Clint Blackwood DDS in Murray.

Resolving Issues With Gums

What if your cosmetic dental problem has to do with your gums? Are you one of the many Salt Lake City residents whose gums are too long, short, or uneven? There is a solution for gum problems as well. The answer is gum contouring surgery. With gum contouring, sometimes called tissue sculpting or gum reshaping, a Murray dentist or periodontist can improve the shape or size of your gums.

Gum reshaping is not always a cosmetic procedure. If the gums have receded to a point where the tooth root is susceptible to decay, gum surgery can restore the natural, healthy gum line and protect tooth root and bone. For more information about gum contouring or cosmetic dentistry in Salt Lake City, call us at 801-506-6009 or visit our website for more information. Clint Blackwood is a master of smile makeovers and he can give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.

Don’t Let Stress Hurt Your Perfect Smile

Don't Take Stress Out On Your Teeth Murray At Salt Lake Dental Care in Murray UT, it’s not uncommon to see patients with stress-related dental issues. You might not realize it, but stress can do a number on your oral health and your perfect smile.

Mouth sores, clenching and grinding, gum disease, and poor oral hygiene can all be exacerbated by stress.

People who have difficulty managing stress need to realize it can increase the risk of getting mouth sores such as cankers and cold sores. Most canker sores only last 7-10 days, but for relief from the irritation, we recommend an over-the-counter topical anesthetic.

Clenching and grinding the teeth is common, and many people do it unconsciously. We can determine whether a night guard or other dental appliance is appropriate to reduce grinding.

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is exacerbated by stress because stress can result in an increase in dental plaque.

As a final note, many people are more likely to neglect their dental health routine when they are under stress. They also tend to eat more sugary snacks when they’re under stress.

Protect your perfect smile! If you’re concerned about the effect stress is having on your teeth, schedule an appointment at Salt Lake Dental Care in Murray UT. We offer general and family dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening. Make an appointment today.
