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.

Salt Lake Dental Care Treats Cankers Sores, Lesions, and Fever Blisters

Salt Lake Dental Care Treats Cankers Sores Lesions and Fever Blisters

At Salt Lake Dental Care, one of the most common complaints we hear from Murray dentistry patients is problems with mouth sores.

There are many different kinds of oral lesions which can make eating and talking painful. Some are annoying but harmless, while other sores are more serious and require medical intervention.

Though not contagious, the most common complaint is canker sores, which affect an estimated eighty percent of the Salt Lake area population. Canker sores can be attributed to stress, tissue irritation, or acidic foods.

Dr. Clint Blackwood can prescribe a topical dental paste to relieve pain and guard against infection. Recurring canker sores can sometimes be a symptom of a larger health problem.

Another common complaint is fever blisters or cold sores, which are contagious, fluid-filled blisters. Salt Lake City cold sore sufferers should be aware that cold sores can become infected. At Salt Lake Dental Care, we advise our patients on how to treat cold sores and avoid further breakouts.

Fungal infections and oral cancer can cause sores in the mouth and throat. See your Salt Lake City dentist if you experience any of the following:

Lumps or discolored patches in the mouth lasting longer than three weeks
Unusually large lesions
Multiple sores

Dr. Clint Blackwood reminds patients that eating a well balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, and not smoking can all aid in oral health and hygiene.

To schedule an appointment, or ask about other oral concerns, contact Salt Lake Dental Care today at 801-938-8855.
