Gummy Smile?

Gummy Smile? Many Murray cosmetic dentistry patients with a gummy smile undergo crown lengthening surgery to bring proper balance and symmetry to their smile. Gum tissue and, in some cases, bone is removed to expose more of the visible part of a tooth. It is a safe procedure that does not affect healthy tooth structure.

A ‘gummy smile’ is a term used to describe a smile with teeth that appear too short because an unusual amount of bone and soft tissue hide part of the crown. Our Murray cosmetic dental patients who have opted for crown lengthening love how their new perfect smile looks and feels. Some of our Murray crown lengthening patients also choose teeth whitening for an extra-dazzling smile!

Crown lengthening is not used solely for cosmetic reasons. When a tooth is injured and breaks at the gum line or if a filling or crown comes off a tooth that contains decay, crown lengthening makes additional tooth structure accessible for further restorative work. It is also used to treat some types of periodontal disease.

At Salt Lake Dental Care, we perform cosmetic and restorative crown lengthening for patients in the Murray, Sandy and Taylorsville area. The surgery can be performed by a general dentist, periodontist or oral surgeon.

If you are interested in crown lengthening or other cosmetic dental procedures and live in the Salt Lake City, area, schedule an exam by calling 801-938-8855. We are conveniently located at 279 E 5900 S Ste 202 in Murray. When you come in, we can show you before and after photos of Utah cosmetic dentistry patients who are enjoying their new smiles.

Murray Dental Miracles

Affordable Murray Family Dentistry Murray cosmetic dentistry can not only improve your smile, it can improve the health of your teeth. It can also make your face more attractive and younger-looking. In addition, it can help with TMJ issues, and it definitely boosts your self-esteem!

What’s more, Salt Lake City cosmetic dentistry is surprisingly quick and virtually pain-free. Why? Because of advanced dental technology and new oral sedation options.

At Salt Lake Dental Care, Dr. Clint Blackwood performs dental miracles everyday. Regardless of the number of teeth affected, Dr. Blackwood re-designs smiles and corrects problems by skillfully performing cosmetic dental treatments.

Orthodontics can be the answer for misaligned teeth. Even if you have suffered with crooked teeth for years, a short time enduring braces will be well worth it.

If you have teeth that are decayed or otherwise damaged, there are several remedies. Porcelain crowns, inlays, onlays, dental bonding, and veneers are some of the effective procedures.

What if a tooth is missing entirely? A dental implant is a complete restoration; including a new root!

Some of the most popular procedures performed at Salt Lake Dental Care are cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry.

Perhaps all of this sounds too good to be true. If you are a skeptic, schedule a smile makeover consultation today and find out for yourself. Clint Blackwood will explain how your teeth can be transformed and you can see before and after photos.

We are located at 279 E 5900 S Ste 202 in Murray. Call 801-938-8855 for an informative, no-pressure discussion with Dr. Clint Blackwood.

Going to the dentist for the first time in Murray, or if you have not been for while, can be an unsettling experience for both kids and adults. The very idea of a ‘dentist’ seems to hold negative connotation for many people. If you are an adult who is moving to the Murray area, or your child is preparing to visit the dentist for the first time, here are a few tips that may help ease you into regular dental checkups and put you on the path toward increased oral health and wellness.

Choose an Murray dentist who is appropriate for your needs. When you meet your new Murray dentist for the first time, make an effort to ask questions about the care you will receive. Ask questions that are relevant to your situation including questions about experience, age range of patients, and recommended procedures for any conditions you may have. Get to know your Murray dentist so you feel comfortable with the care you will receive.

Introduce yourself to your Murray dentist and get to know the office staff. Visiting the dentist in Murray will seem less of a chore when you feel you have trusted friends who are there to help.

Be prepared to provide your Murray dentist with information. Whether you are experiencing specific pain at that moment, or anticipating a problem, be sure to discuss everything with your dentist. Many patients become intimidated in the office environment and avoid expressing pain or discussing issues. As your dentist, I need to know everything you are experiencing and will be better prepared to help as you ask questions and express your concerns.

I understand that everyone is unique; what works for one person may not work for another. You know what works best for you, and the best way to have a good experience with a Murray dentist is to communicate. Let me know what you are experiencing so that I can make adjustments and help you feel more comfortable and secure.

At Salt Lake Dental Care our high-quality staff will work to make your dental experience a pleasant one. We know it can be frightening to visit the dentist for the first time, or after a long while. We’ll do what we can to make you feel comfortable, secure, and among caring friends.

Diet Changes For Healthier Teeth In Murray

Diet Changes For Healthier Teeth In Murray

Hello, I am Dr. Clint Blackwood of Salt Lake Dental Care in Murray. Today’s blog topic is ‘How Your Diet Affects Your Smile.’

I’m sure you brush and floss regularly and hopefully visit your Murray cosmetic dental practice for cleanings, but did you know that making small changes to your diet can improve your oral health?

Most Murray residents are aware that sugar found in candy, cookies, and sodas can harm your teeth, but some Salt Lake City people don’t realize that all carbohydrates can cause cavities. A handful of pretzels or a piece of pumpernickel bread can have the same effect on your teeth as a fudge brownie.

All carbohydrates break down into simple sugars, which are converted into plaque, which can then cause cavities and gum disease. Carbs are naturally sticky and adhere to your teeth. Eating carbs with meals is healthier than eating them as snacks because more saliva is generated at mealtime. Saliva helps prevent food particles from sticking to teeth.

At Salt Lake Dental Care, I continue to see tooth damage caused by sodas and sports drinks. If you choose to drink them, sip them through a straw. By limiting the contact of these drinks on your teeth, you will help preserve your enamel.

Another way Salt Lake City folks can improve their oral health is to get 800mg of calcium a day for men and 1,000mg for women under 50. Calcium helps strengthen your jaw and secure your teeth firmly in the jaw bone.

Diet alone will not prevent cavities and gum disease for Murray folks, however, a few changes in eating habits can help maintain healthy teeth and gums.

My staff and I at Salt Lake Dental Care are accepting new Murray general and cosmetic dental patients in the 84107 zip code area. I encourage you to call 801-938-8855 today to schedule an exam and cleaning.

Salt Lake Dental Care offers a full menu of general and specialty dental services including general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry. For more information, call today to schedule an appointment.

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.

To schedule an appointment at Salt Lake Dental Care, give us a call at 801-938-8855.
