Smile Makeovers: First Things First

smile design Murray

Hello, I’m Dr. Clint Blackwood of Salt Lake Dental Care. Thanks for visiting my blog. In today’s post, we will focus on something that happens occasionally when a patient requests cosmetic dentistry from their Murray dentist.

Let me set the stage. The patient comes in for a consultation about a smile makeover. We’ll call him Mr. Jones. The dentist listens carefully as he explains the esthetic problems that he wants to remedy. Mr. Jones wants to fix two chipped teeth, get a dental implant for a tooth that is missing altogether, and whiten his whole smile. He describes what he envisions for his smile after undergoing treatment.

The dentist performs an examination of his entire mouth and takes x-rays. The dentist discovers some additional troubles. There are three teeth with moderate decay, one tooth with acute decay, gum disease, an old crown with a crack in it, and severe bone recession at the potential dental implant site where the tooth was extracted ten years ago.

The dentist explains that these troubles need to be addressed before the smile redesign is performed. Mr. Jones says that the smile makeover is his first priority and plans to deal with the other problems sometime in the future.

How does the dentist advise Mr. Jones? The dentist will probably explain that the lasting success of a cosmetic dental procedure such as porcelain veneers, dental bonding, or tooth whitening is influenced by the condition of the mouth at the time of treatment. There must be a solid, healthy foundation, so to speak, on which to build the smile makeover.

First things first. It makes no sense to attach a veneer to a decayed tooth that may need a root canal. A dental implant may not integrate with the surrounding bone structure if placed at a site where there is bone recession. Tooth whitening will probably not produce favorable results where there is gum disease and exposed tooth roots.

Can Mr. Jones ever have his dream smile? Yes! There are treatments to correct all of the problems mentioned previously. But just like many other things in life, the order of operations is critical.

If you are interested in a smile makeover or simply need a check-up, schedule an appointment by calling 801-938-8855. I look forward to discussing both your oral health and esthetic concerns.

What Does A Beautiful Smile Say About You?

What a Beautiful Utah Smile Says About You It’s not just about looks. According to a recent study by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), a healthy and attractive smile makes you appear more intelligent, successful, friendly and interesting. (See http://www.aacd.com for complete survey results.)

Our smile makeover patients who have undergone restorative and cosmetic dentistry at Salt Lake Dental Care in Murray have experienced this phenomenon firsthand. They have expressed that they not only feel great about their looks, they are more confident in professional and social situations. Another benefit: they also feel more appealing to the opposite gender.

I’m Clint Blackwood of Salt Lake Dental Care in Murray. I enjoy using my years of training and experience to provide premium cosmetic dentistry for my patients in the Sandy and Taylorsville area. I am passionate about developing a custom treatment plan for each Murray dental patient. Some of my Draper patients had lived with misaligned or crooked teeth for years. Others had been self-conscious about missing or stained teeth.

There has never been a better time to upgrade your smile. There are solutions for every kind of dental problem. If you are not familiar with the latest teeth whitening, crown restoration and tooth replacement procedures, it is time to find out. Call 801-938-8855 to schedule a consultation. Come in to our office on 279 E 5900 S Ste 202 in Murray and see photos of our happy Salt Lake City dental makeover patients who are enjoying their beautiful smiles every day!

Look For The Seal In Salt Lake City

Look For The Seal In Salt Lake City

When you go to a Sandy, Taylorsville, or Draper drugstore or supermarket looking for toothpaste, mouthwash, teeth whitener, or another oral care product, make sure that it carries the seal of the American Dental Association. The seal is there to help you make the best choices you can for the products you need to keep your mouth clean and healthy.

The American Dental Association (ADA) only places their seal on a product after it has been evaluated to be safe as well as effective. This usually means that companies have to meet standards even higher than those required by law.

Making sure to purchase products with the seal is practically like shopping with your Murray dentist or dental hygienist right by your side!

Hi, I’m Dr. Clint Blackwood of Salt Lake Dental Care. We serve the Sandy, Taylorsville, and Draper areas. We take pride in caring for our patients and, like the ADA, want you to have a healthy, beautiful smile. Many of our patients wonder if a smile makeover is right for them.
