Professional Teeth Whitening In Murray

Professional Teeth Whitening at Salt Lake Dental Care - Clint Blackwood DDS A sensational smile leaves a lasting impression. Professional teeth whitening can dramatically improve your overall appearance and give you a boost in self-confidence.

 

Most people are aware that smoking is not only bad for our lungs but can also discolor our teeth. There are even some medications that can impact tooth color.

If you are considering having your teeth whitened, you must first select which method to use. At Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS, we enjoy discussing treatment options with our patients. To schedule a consultation to talk about teeth whitening or any other dental procedure, call 801-938-8855.

At-home whitening treatments usually consist of trays filled with whitening solution. It generally takes 7-14 days to achieve 3-6 shades lighter. Brush-on teeth gels and whitening strips take up to 30 days to realize results. Whitening toothpaste may lighten superficial stains but often provides no change in the appearance of teeth.

Professional teeth whitening procedures performed by a dental professional achieve dramatic results that can last longer than other treatments.

All of the whitening methods may cause tooth pain or sensitivity, but this usually goes away in a few days. If you have crowns, porcelain veneers, or dental bonding, it is crucial to speak with your dentist before choosing a whitening method.

You Know It When You See It

top cosmetic dentist Murray

You may not be able to articulate why all the components blend in perfect harmony. But you know it when you see it.

We’re talking about a beautiful smile. At Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS, beautiful smiles are our specialty.

We provide tooth implants and other cosmetic dental procedures for complete smile makeovers.

You may be surprised at how many details Dr. Blackwood must consider when planning for a smile redesign.

Here are a few of the most obvious characteristics:

  • Tooth Color: shade, brightness, uniformity
  • Tooth alignment: straight or crooked?
  • Tooth size and proportions: are some teeth much larger or smaller than the rest?
  • Tooth spacing: is there crowding or big gaps between teeth?
  • Gumline margins: how much gum shows when you smile?

Here are some other considerations that may be less familiar to the layperson:

  • The portions of the teeth that are visible when the mouth is at rest
  • The relationship of the smile line and the lip line
  • Zenith points: the highest point of the gumline in relation to the center of the tooth

If vital design principles are not complied with, the smile may look ‘off’. Or it could impact the function of the teeth and jaw. For example, a smile transformation performed by an inexperienced cosmetic dentist could change the patient’s bite and put unnecessary stress on the restorations.

Do not elect a dental implant dentist by procedure cost alone. If you are contemplating a single tooth implant or total mouth restoration, call Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS today to schedule a dental implant consultation.

Tooth Whitening: What The ADA Has To Say

Draper cosmetic smile makeover

When a cosmetic dentistry procedure like teeth whitening becomes popular, it’s natural to want to experience it for yourself. At Salt Lake Dental Care we offer Zoom! teeth whitening.

Smart consumers, of course, want to know what they’re getting. What does the American Dental Association say about teeth whitening?

The ADA advises patients to ask their dentist before committing to any whitening procedure. An initial examination will help us know if teeth whitening is for you. This is especially important when you have dark stains on your teeth or multiple crowns and/or fillings.

Everyone, it seems, would like to whiten their teeth, and there has been a veritable explosion of whitening products in recent years. There’s a big selection of products in any grocery store, but over-the-counter products cannot match the results you’ll get from professional teeth whitening.

At Salt Lake Dental Care in Salt Lake City, we offer Zoom! teeth whitening that can transform your smile in a single office visit. It’s just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we have. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Tooth Whitening in Murray: Love Your Smile

Love Your Smile in Murray Tooth Whitening in Murray There is nothing like bright white teeth that light up a person’s whole face when they smile and laugh. No one has to settle for dull, yellow teeth with tooth whitening in Murray.

This is a great time for Salt Lake City men, women, and teens to get a deep teeth cleaning and tooth whitening in Murray at Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS. With a deep cleaning followed by teeth bleaching, your teeth will feel as good as they look.

If you have an important upcoming event such as a wedding, party or formal family portrait sitting, a smile makeover will give you extra confidence as you pose for photos. Even if those photos are close-ups.

You have probably seen the porcelain tabs in graduated shades that Murray dentists use to determine appropriate, yet natural looking, shades for tooth restorations. Draper teeth bleaching can whiten teeth beyond their natural shade. Many cosmetic dentistry practices don’t use a conventional shade chart for whitening patients anymore.

There are now shade guides with levels significantly whiter than the guides used in the past. Tooth whitening in Murray is not a gimmick; it is a safe and incredibly effective treatment. Salt Lake City tooth bleaching patients can maintain a white shade that equals the brightness of the ‘tooth’ models you see in dental marketing.

Draper tooth whitening following twice-yearly cleanings is usually the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedure. Tooth bleaching in Murray is comparable to the cost of a professional hair weaving and cut, but when you consider the transformation – there is no comparison! Flash your gorgeous, sparkling smile, and no one will even notice your hair! For more information about cosmetic dentistry or dental implants, give us a call today!

Cosmetic Dentistry: How To Get The White Teeth in Salt Lake City

White Teeth in Salt Lake City

Some people’s teeth are whiter than others, but I think it’s safe to say that most of us Murray residents want our teeth to be pearly white! If you are one of those people, then Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS can help you achieve that brilliant smile you deserve. Today we want to share some tips about white teeth in Salt Lake City and what we can do for you!

Don’t Forget to Brush

The first tip seems like a no-brainer, but many individuals still forget this practice. We are talking about daily tooth brushing. Brushing your teeth with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste is one of the best ways to keep your teeth clean and prevent dental cavities. Often our teeth become discolored or stained because of what we consume, but when we brush our teeth, it limits the damage.

After brushing teeth, another tip is using a fluoride rinse to finish the cleaning job. Fluoride helps to get into the cracks where bacteria can be hiding away. When the bacteria is killed, it prohibits it from spreading and discoloring your teeth. When you are shopping for a fluoride rinse, check the labels. Some ordinary mouthwashes don’t contain fluoride. Also avoid rinses with alcohol, as this can cause dry mouth and detract from white teeth in Salt Lake City.

Want White Teeth in Salt Lake City?

Sometimes the discoloration is too extreme to be reversed by home remedies. That’s why we at Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS offer other effective care to lighten your smile. We provide in-office teeth whitening and take home teeth bleaching kits. Each of these treatment plans provides an effective solution to teeth whitening. Our friendly staff at Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS will work with you to find the best solution to beautify your smile. For more information about porcelain veneers and Invisalign clear braces, give us a call!

Modern Marvels: Dental Implants in Murray UT

Millions of Americans are enjoying the benefits of dental implants, many of them here in Murray UT.  Salt Lake Dental Care is a provider of these dental marvels.

A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted into a patient’s jaw. They replace the missing tooth’s root, which helps the jawbone maintain its density and prevents bone recession. An artificial tooth is fitted on top of the titanium post.

One of the things that make dental implants so popular is that they blend in so easily with the patient’s remaining teeth. They look and function like natural teeth, and are therefore an excellent long-term solution.

For patients missing all of their teeth, implants can be used to anchor dentures, providing a much firmer, more secure fit. Many patients say they have renewed confidence in  themselves, after years of embarrassment caused by missing teeth.

To find out more about dental implants from Salt Lake Dental Care in Murray UT, contact our office. We also provide general and family dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Has Your Toddler Had A Dental Exam?

If you have a toddler who has not yet had that first trip to the dentist, we invite you to make an appointment with us at Salt Lake Dental Care in Murray UT. Our family dentistry is for people of all ages.

The the best time to start dental check-ups for young children is when their teeth first come in, or by their first birthday. This may seem a bit early, but it’s the best way to get them started on the path to lifelong oral health.

National studies show that more and more preschool-aged children are getting cavities. Some are showing signs of tooth decay as early as age two. Children with an increased risk of dental problems should receive a dental examination as early as possible. Here are some of the risk factors:

  • Sleeping with a bottle
  • Drinking juice repeatedly during the day
  • Abnormal tooth development
  • Thumb sucking
  • Tooth grinding
  • A mother with significant tooth decay
  • Other physical problems

When you bring your toddler in, we’ll analyze the condition of his or her teeth and identify potential problems. It’s helpful for parents to get a review of proper oral hygiene for young children. You can also learn about preventative measures, such as dental sealants and fluoride supplements.

Make an appointment, and bring your questions, too. Salt Lake Dental Care in Murray UT provides general and family dentistry, as well as popular cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. Give us a call today!

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.
