7 Ways To Fix A Tooth

fix broken tooth Murray

In a perfect world, each of your prized teeth would stay healthy, strong, and brilliantly white throughout your life. The truth is, however, that most Utah men and women will need to restore a tooth at some point.

A tooth can be compromised by dental caries, enamel erosion, a chip or crack, gum disease, or injury. Sometimes old restorations break and need to be replaced or root canals performed decades ago develop an abscess.

Here are 7 different options for repairing a damaged tooth:

Dental Bonding
Bonding, officially called direct composite veneers, is used to repair minor cosmetic issues – small chips, cracks, discoloration, and spaces between teeth. A skilled cosmetic dentist applies moldable tooth-colored composite resin and shapes as desired. The resin is then cured with a special light to harden and adhere tightly to the tooth. Composite bonding is often the most cost-effective option for improving healthy teeth with minor cosmetic issues.

Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin tooth-shaped fronts that are permanently bonded to your natural teeth. They are used when the underlying tooth is structurally sound and free of dental caries. A beautiful veneer can cover a chip or crack or fix the alignment of a tooth that appears slightly off kilter as compared to surrounding teeth.

Fillings
Modern white fillings are strong and inconspicuous. A minimally invasive filling at Salt Lake Dental Care leaves you with more of nature’s prime dental material — your own enamel and dentin. We can also replace old amalgam fillings with white fillings. This makes your teeth look a lot better every time you open your mouth. Get rid of all that metal!

Inlays and Onlays
A traditional filling is shaped and molded after it is applied to the tooth. Because inlays and onlays are constructed in a dental lab, they are typically called indirect fillings. A less invasive inlay or onlay may be used instead of a traditional filling or, in some cases, a crown. Inlays are applied to just the center of the biting surface of a tooth (not to a cusp or point) and are generally smaller than onlays. An onlay restores one or more cusps of a tooth.

Crowns
A dental crown replaces the entire visible portion of the tooth, restoring appearance, strength, and function. A crown is commonly needed for a tooth that has had a root canal, a tooth with extreme decay, or as the replacement tooth in a dental bridge. Attaching a crown to the abutment is the final step of a tooth implant procedure. Crowns can be made of all metal (such as gold), porcelain-fused-to-metal, all ceramic, or all resin.

Soft Tissue Grafts
Gum recession puts teeth and underlying bone at risk. Soft tissue grafting can cover the exposed root of a tooth to impede further damage. Gum surgery is also handled for cosmetic reasons such reshaping a gumline to eliminate a “gummy” smile.

Dental Implants
What if a tooth has to be extracted because it is beyond saving? For many Salt Lake Dental Care patients, a dental implant anchored into the bone is the best solution. A tooth implant consist of a strong metal post (artificial root), abutment (connecting piece), and beautiful crown. A dental implant had many advantages over a dental bridge. They are stronger, provide virtually natural function, prohibit bone recession, and do not influence the surrounding teeth. For patients with numerous missing teeth, custom implant-anchored dentures can be established in any configuration required.

For more specifics about any of these procedures, call Salt Lake Dental Care at 801-938-8855. Thanks for visiting the Salt Lake Dental Care blog. We appreciate your interest in our Murray dental practice.

Restoring Teeth At Salt Lake Dental Care

Restoring Teeth At Salt Lake Dental Care At Salt Lake Dental Care in Murray, we use a variety of techniques to restore damaged teeth. Most Salt Lake City dental patients are familiar with fillings. Traditional fillings are also called ‘direct restorations’ because they are applied to the tooth and then shaped and polished in one visit.

Another type of filling is called an ‘indirect restoration’ and is fabricated in a dental lab. There are two types: inlays and onlays.

When a tooth needs more extensive dental restoration, a crown is often used. At Salt Lake Dental Care in Murray, we create strong, natural-looking crowns from a variety of materials.

What if the tooth is damaged beyond repair? There are a number of functional replacements for missing teeth. Dentures are not the only option.

Call 801-938-8855 to learn about the restoration options available. We have been improving smiles for Salt Lake City and Draper patients since 2005.

Whether the damage is caused by decay, injury, bite problems, or natural wear; Clint Blackwood DDS will choose the best dental treatment plan for your tooth restoration needs. Salt Lake Dental Care is conveniently located at 279 E 5900 S Ste 202 in Murray. We provide quality dental care for Murray area families.

“If Your Gums Are Swollen And Sore, Call Salt Lake Dental Care”

"If Your Gums Are Swollen And Sore, Call Salt Lake Dental Care"

If you are a worried Murray resident experiencing inflamed gums or an aching tooth, you’re are not alone.

About one third of U.S. adults are affected by tooth decay, according to the CDC, and gum disease plagues one in seven people age 35 to 40.1 Don’t ignore these symptoms, call Salt Lake Dental Care today at 801-938-8855 for immediate treatment.

At Salt Lake Dental Care we take gum disease, seriously because left untreated it can lead to loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth.

Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease. You will know you have it if your gums bleed easily and look red and swollen. If this condition is not reversed it can lead to periodontitis. With this condition your gums become loose and separate from the teeth forming cavities that can become infected. This can spread to the bone supporting the tooth. If this is damaged, the tooth can be lost. (If you have already lost a tooth to gum disease, ask us about dental implants.)

At Salt Lake Dental Care we recommend daily brushing and flossing and regular dental cleanings to help combat gingivitis. Our team has been treating gum disease and other dental problems for Utah residents since 2005.

If you want your teeth to feel fresh and bright, come in for a cleaning and check-up. Don’t become a statistic, prevent gingivitis by treating your teeth and gums with the TLC they deserve. (After all, they work pretty hard for you day in and day out.)

My name is Clint Blackwood and my staff and I at Salt Lake Dental Care offer quality general and cosmetic dental services including wisdom teeth removal, Invisalign, and
sedation dentistry.

Take care of your beautiful smile by calling Salt Lake Dental Care today. Visit Us Once and You’ll Be A Patient For Life

4 Murray UT Smile Boosters

Draper cosmetic dental and tooth implants

Hi, my name is Dr. Clint Blackwood. My dental practice Salt Lake Dental Care has been serving the Murray, Salt Lake City, and Sandy Utah area since 2005. Today in my Murray Dental Blog, I would like to highlight four ways you can improve your smile.

1. Teeth Whitening is quick and non-invasive. External tooth whitening occurs when teeth whitening agents bleach the teeth directly. This can be done in your home or in the office of your Murray dentist.

2. Dental Implants are another common procedure that many Murray residents seek. A dental implant is secured into the jawbone to replace the roots of a lost tooth. A crown is then attached to the implant to replace the missing tooth. Along with improving appearance and restoring tooth function, the dental implant does double-duty by helping to maintain the bone support.

3. Dental Bonding can be done with various materials such as porcelains and composite resins. With recent advances in the field of cosmetic dentistry, these materials can more precisely replicate natural tooth structure and appearance. This procedure is commonly used to fix chipped or cracked teeth.

4. Periodontal Plastic Surgery is an excellent solution for gum recession and cosmetic irregularities. Gum tissue is removed or added to give the appropriate framework to the teeth.

I hope this post has helped you to get better acquainted with some highly effective cosmetic dentistry treatments. A combination of procedures can be used to give Murray dental patients a complete smile redesign.

Aching Jaw In Murray?

Hi. I’m Dr. Clint Blackwood, and today in the Murray dentist blog, I want to look at some of the conditions that may result in jaw pain.

Jaw pain may be caused by sinusitis. Sinusitis is the inflammation of the tissues that line your sinuses, and when these tissues are inflamed, the sinuses exert pressure on surrounding areas. If the inflamed sinus is near the jaw, pain in the jaw joint may result. This commonly happens following a cold or when someone suffers from allergies.

Many of my Murray, Salt Lake City, and Sandy patients who come to me with jaw pain have some type of dental problem, such as an infection or a problem in the temporomandibular joint (also known as TMJ).

The source of jaw pain can easily be identified at your Salt Lake City dental office, and treatment can begin from there. But remember, jaw pain shouldn’t be ignored.

If you are looking for quality dental care around the Sandy, Murray, or Salt Lake City UT areas, please consider Salt Lake Dental Care. I have been serving this area since 2005. If you have any questions about oral health or any cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, bonding, or dental implants, give us a call today at 801-938-8855.

A Fresh Start After Losing A Tooth In Murray

A Fresh Start After Losing A Tooth In Murray UT With Dental Implants Are you one of the many Murray men and women who has had a tooth extracted? If the tooth had been bothering you, it may have been a relief. Unless, of course, the tooth was in the front of your mouth and now the gaping hole shows every time you smile. Ignoring it is impossible because your tongue can’t leave it alone.

Once the tooth has been pulled, you have many decisions to make. Can I afford a dental bridge? Do I want to damage two healthy teeth to anchor the bridge? Should I go with a partial denture? What about bone loss?

What if you could have a fresh start? What if you could have a permanent, natural looking tooth replacement that would restore your smile and retain the healthy bone and gum tissue around the tooth root?

With a dental implants from Salt Lake Dental Care, you can. A dental implant is a permanent replacement for all parts of the tooth. A dental implant consists of three parts: the titanium post, the abutment, and the restoration.

The Titanium Post
—Inserted directly into the jaw bone
—Extremely strong
—Titanium is unique in that it bonds with living bone tissue (also used in knee and hip replacement surgery)

The Abutment
—Can be made of gold, porcelain or titanium
—Permanently attached to the post (it will not slip and slide like dentures)

The Restoration (Dental Crown)
—Usually made of porcelain fused to a metal alloy (PFM)
—Is made to match the color of surrounding teeth
—Will look as good or better than the tooth it replaced

Dental implant surgery is not an experimental treatment. The materials and techniques have been tested and refined for several decades. It has been performed by Murray dentists and prosthodontists for over twenty years. To schedule a dental implant consultation, call 801-938-8855.

Attention Murray: Replace Your Dental Bridge Before You Lose Teeth

Attention Murray UT: Replace Your Dental Bridge Before You Lose TeethHello Murray visitors, welcome to Salt Lake Dental Care. Let’s talk about a tooth replacement option common in Salt Lake City: dental bridges.

While dental bridges have restored smiles for thousands of Salt Lake City dental patients, they are not problem free. Many Utah people with bridges find it impossible to keep the small areas around the dental bridge clean. This is not surprising because it is hard to get toothbrush bristles or dental floss under the bridge.

Of course bacteria has no trouble moving in and taking over without the Murray dental patient even knowing it. When the decay reaches the roots of the surrounding teeth, it is not only painful, the person is at risk of losing those teeth also.

That is one reason why dental implants are superior to dental bridges. Most Salt Lake City people with missing teeth are great candidates for dental implants.

A dental implant looks just like the beautiful tooth restoration on a high-quality dental bridge, but the important part is what you don’t see.

A dental implant is screwed directly into the jaw bone. It is not attached to teeth like the dental bridges traditionally used in Salt Lake City. In a way, a dental implant is a more conservative tooth replacement because it leaves the adjacent teeth intact. The bone and gum tissue mesh permanently with the titanium post that serves as the replacement tooth root.

Dental implants do not have the same decay risk as the teeth that anchor dental bridges. Of course patients with dental implants need to brush and floss, but cleaning a dental implant is usually no more difficult than cleaning a normal tooth.

Implant dentistry has a far better track record in Utah than dental bridges. With proper care, a dental implant can last a lifetime for smile-smart Salt Lake City folks.

If you currently have a dental bridge, you might consider permanently replacing it with a dental implant before the adjacent teeth are threatened with decay.

At Salt Lake Dental Care, dental implants can replace one or more teeth and can also serve as anchors for full or partial dentures. No more embarrassing slipping!

If you are interested in learning more about dental implants, I invite you to call Salt Lake Dental Care at 801-938-8855. I am Dr. Clint Blackwood. Call today to schedule a dental implant consultation. A beautiful new smile can be yours with dental implants.
