Porcelain Veneers And Instant Orthodontics For Murray

Murray Porcelain Veneers and Instant Orthodontics If you have been paying attention to the orthodontics scene in recent years, you probably know about invisible braces and speed braces. These new teeth straightening procedures have been welcomed by many people, especially Salt Lake City adults who want an alternative to traditional metal braces.

There’s more good news for Sandy residents who want to straighten their teeth. How about ‘instant orthodontics’?

If you want immediate teeth straightening, you can get beautiful porcelain veneers from Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS!

Clint Blackwood at Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS can help you determine if porcelain veneers are for you.

In addition to correcting minor tooth misalignment, porcelain veneers are used to whiten teeth and restore chipped teeth. Porcelain veneers are attached to the front of teeth and often require no removal of healthy tooth structure. Another advantage? They are usually less expensive than complete crown restorations but look just as natural.

To schedule a consultation, call Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS at 801-506-6009. Porcelain veneers may be the best way for you to receive a smile makeover at a fraction of the cost.

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 801-506-6009 today!

Versatile Veneers For A Vivid Smile In Murray

Affordable Cosmetic Dentistry in Salt Lake City Have you ever wished you could quickly attach perfectly shaped, dazzling white front surfaces to your teeth? Guess what? You can! With porcelain veneers, you can eliminate smile imperfections in just one visit to your singular Murray cosmetic dental office.

The industry-leading porcelain veneer is one of the most versatile items in a cosmetic dentist’s toolbox. Veneers turn unattractive smiles into dazzling smiles with minimal disruption to existing tooth structure. They are quicker and usually less costly than complete crowns in Murray but are made with the same durable, translucent porcelain.

It’s no wonder that a very large percentage of people in the public eye have porcelain veneers. An actress can receive a perfect smile in the morning and appear on a talk show that evening. A supermodel can permanently remedy a discolored tooth on the fly and pose for photos right after leaving her dental office. A local television news anchor can have his teeth perfectly aligned in a couple hours and report Utah news that same day.

I am Clint Blackwood of Salt Lake Dental Care in Murray, Utah. I have performed hundreds of veneer placements – alone and in combination with crowns, inlays, onlays, and tooth implants for dramatic smile makeovers. Perhaps you should look at veneers as the best way to achieve your beautiful smile.

Let’s talk. My office can be reached at 801-506-6009

What Can Veneers Do For Salt Lake City Smiles?

porcelain veneers cost Salt Lake City

Hello, and welcome to our Salt Lake Dental Care cosmetic dentistry blog. Today we are taking the time to answer a common question that many dental patients in the Salt Lake City area have. The question is, “What exactly are veneers and how are they used in cosmetic dentistry?”

Veneers are thin shells made from tooth-colored substances. They are custom-made for each patient and are used to improve the appearance of teeth. Veneers are designed to cover the front part of the teeth and are most commonly employed to correct teeth that have been chipped, stained, decayed, or that are crooked.

If you visit your Sandy, Taylorsville, or Draper dentist for veneers, they will first make a model of your teeth. Next, a dental technician will use the model to create the veneers, so you can be sure of a custom fit.

Since a little of the enamel from the tooth has to be removed so the veneers can be placed, this process is usually irreversible.

I hope that this blog entry has helped you to understand a little more about porcelain veneers and how they can help you to improve your smile. Along with other cosmetic dentistry procedures such as gum contouring, smile makeovers, and teeth whitening, the smile that you desire is really just a few dental visits away! If you are in the Draper area and are looking for a dentist, give Salt Lake Dental Care a call. My name is Dr. Clint Blackwood and I have been a Murray, Utah dentist since 2005.

Please call 801-506-6009 and a member of our high-quality staff can schedule an appointment for you and answer any questions you have about the following top services that we offer at Salt Lake Dental Care:

Is a Perfect Smile Possible In Murray?

Is a Perfect Cosmetic Dental Smile Possible In Murray? Are you considering a smile makeover in the Murray UT area? Are you skeptical of promises of a ‘perfect smile’ a ‘celebrity smile’ or ‘a dazzling, youthful smile’? Let’s talk about the most popular Murray cosmetic dental procedures and the results that can be expected.

Composite Veneers
The application of porcelain veneers at Salt Lake Dental Care can remedy a multitude of aesthetic dental problems and is often a better cosmetic dental solution for candidates in the Murray UT area than dental bonding. Veneers can correct tooth chips, tooth cracks, minor tooth misalignment, tooth discoloration, unattractive tooth shape, and disproportionate tooth size. Can a porcelain veneer create a perfect tooth? While a veneer cannot fix a decayed tooth, it can turn an unsightly tooth into an aesthetically perfect tooth.

Tooth Bleaching
Salt Lake City tooth whitening is a non-invasive cosmetic dental treatment that dramatically improves a smile. However, some Salt Lake City tooth whitening dentists will guarantee fantastic results for any patient that desires a whiter smile. At Salt Lake Dental Care in Murray we only recommend tooth bleaching for clients that are good candidates for the process. If you have all-natural teeth that are dull or stained, tooth whitening will brighten your smile. If you have several crowns in the front of your mouth, or gums that have receded, conventional tooth-whitening may not improve your smile.

Call 801-938-8855 to schedule a tooth-whitening consultation.

Tooth-Colored Fillings
If you have a mouth full of metal fillings, you may be interested in tooth-colored fillings. To get an idea of how the inside of your mouth would look without metal, have someone without any fillings open their mouth. Do you remember when your mouth looked like that? Would you like to bring your smile back to its pre-filling appearance? It is possible with tooth-colored fillings at Salt Lake Dental Care.

These are just a few of the cosmetic dental solutions that create perfect smiles for our Salt Lake City clients. You can see a complete list of our services at https://www.saltlakedentalcare.com/

Help For Tetracycline And Fluoride Stains At Salt Lake Dental Care

Teeth Whitening Helps Remove Tooth Stains In Sandy Utah

Here at Salt Lake Dental Care, our mission is making the smiles of all Sandy Utah area residents white and bright. My name is Dr. Clint Blackwood and today we are going to talk about ways to enhance your beautiful smile.

Maybe as a self-conscious teen you were prescribed tetracycline to combat acne, but have now been left with discolored teeth. Or maybe the municipal Sandy Utah water you drank growing up had excessive fluoride, another cause of tarnished teeth.

If you are like many of my Murray UT area patients you have sipped one too many dark beverages such as coffee, soda, and wine; and now your teeth are dark and dingy. Call me today at 801-938-8855 to talk about our extensive cosmetic dental treatment plans.

One of the options we recommend at Salt Lake Dental Care for treating discolored teeth are dental veneers which are sometimes called porcelain laminates. The reason I recommend veneers is that veneers not only restore discolored teeth, but they can cover worn, chipped, and cracked teeth.

This is done by placing a thin composite of porcelain over the damaged tooth or teeth leaving a gorgeous, white, flawless smile. At Salt Lake Dental Care we feel that porcelain veneers are the least invasive form of cosmetic dentistry, yet the results are stunning. The smiles of our happy veneer patients are dazzling.

My staff and I at Salt Lake Dental Care also offer teeth whitening, dental restorations and clear braces. Come see why the residents of the Murray UT area have been improving their smiles at Salt Lake Dental Care since 2005.

Murray UT Cosmetic Dental Artistry

Cosmetic Dentistry Murray UT Murray UT cosmetic dentistry is part science and part art.

I’m Dr. Clint Blackwood of Salt Lake Dental Care and I enjoy using my extensive dental training and specialized artistic skills to design treatment plans unique to each of my Murray UT cosmetic dental clients.

In order to achieve an attractive, yet natural looking result, I do much more than recommend specific procedures. I consider the shape, alignment, color and condition of the teeth. In order to create a balanced look, the facial shape and coloring is taken into account. The Murray UT general dentistry client’s age, health condition and lifestyle all influence the plan.

At Salt Lake Dental Care, there is no one size fits all treatment plan.

My artistic abilities have been perfected over several years of creating smile transformations for my Murray UT area cosmetic dentistry clients. I am constantly receiving the latest training in new techniques and materials.

Even fairly recent cosmetic dental procedures such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers have advanced considerably. Dental implants are a truly remarkable solution for our Murray UT dental clients who have lost one or more teeth.

I would love to design a personalized smile makeover for you. When the work has been completed and you are enjoying your new look, it will only be obvious to those who see you all the time. Others will assume you have always been blessed with a naturally beautiful and healthy smile.
