6 Ways To Improve Your Smile In Sandy

dental payment plans Sandy

Who would say no to a prettier smile? I am guessing no one, and now with all of the amazing cosmetic dentistry procedures available from Salt Lake City, Taylorsville, and Draper cosmetic dentists, most dental patients can get the smile they want. Here is a quick look at some of the most popular treatments.

1. Teeth whitening is the most common procedure and it is used to lighten discolored teeth. This quick and easy procedure is usually done in the dentist office, and the results can be surprisingly dramatic.

2. Bonding is a popular treatment that uses a dental composite that resembles enamel. This material is applied to the surface of the teeth, sculpted into the desired shape, and then hardened and polished.

3. Tooth reshaping is a simple way to improve the appearance of teeth. It involves removing part of the enamel and can be used to fix small chips or to change the length or position of teeth.

4. Veneers are custom-made porcelain coverings that are very thin. They are bonded to the teeth and can be used to close gaps or cover discolored teeth.

5. For most Murray, Taylorsville, and Sandy patients, dental implants are the best way to fix a missing tooth.

6. And finally, there is the complete smile makeover. A smile makeover uses a combination of the available treatments to get Sandy dental patients the smiles they want.

Versatile Veneers For A Vivid Smile In Murray

Affordable Cosmetic Dentistry in Salt Lake City Have you ever wished you could quickly attach perfectly shaped, dazzling white front surfaces to your teeth? Guess what? You can! With porcelain veneers, you can eliminate smile imperfections in just one visit to your singular Murray cosmetic dental office.

The industry-leading porcelain veneer is one of the most versatile items in a cosmetic dentist’s toolbox. Veneers turn unattractive smiles into dazzling smiles with minimal disruption to existing tooth structure. They are quicker and usually less costly than complete crowns in Murray but are made with the same durable, translucent porcelain.

It’s no wonder that a very large percentage of people in the public eye have porcelain veneers. An actress can receive a perfect smile in the morning and appear on a talk show that evening. A supermodel can permanently remedy a discolored tooth on the fly and pose for photos right after leaving her dental office. A local television news anchor can have his teeth perfectly aligned in a couple hours and report Utah news that same day.

I am Clint Blackwood of Salt Lake Dental Care in Murray, Utah. I have performed hundreds of veneer placements – alone and in combination with crowns, inlays, onlays, and tooth implants for dramatic smile makeovers. Perhaps you should look at veneers as the best way to achieve your beautiful smile.

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.

3 Behind-The-Scenes Dental Advances For Utah

Crown lengthening Draper

Draper dental patients who have undergone a smile redesign are probably aware of the latest cosmetic dental procedures popular in the Salt Lake City area. These include metal-free fillings, porcelain veneers, invisible braces, implant-anchored dentures, and inlays/onlays.

Today’s Draper dental post focuses on some nifty dentistry advances that are used behind the scenes to benefit Draper dentists and dental patients alike.

Digital imaging is not just for Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest; many cutting-edge Utah dental offices use digital X-Rays. Real-time digital images help Salt Lake City dentists more easily spot and treat oral problems including emerging cavities and bone recession. Digital X-Rays require far less radiation exposure and are easier to store and access.

Pinpoint-precise Diode lasers are used in myriad procedures including crown lengthening, root scaling, biopsies, root canals, teeth whitening, oral lesion removal, and treatment of dental decay. Laser procedures are easier on the patient and require shorter healing times.

CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) are used for many restorative procedures in Draper including in-office inlays/onlays and same-day crowns. Salt Lake City dentists who offer dental implants can use CAD/CAM technology in every phase of the dental implant procedure. CAD/CAM is used in Utah dental laboratories to fabricate crowns, bridges, veneers, and ceramic braces.

The future of dentistry is here today. I’m Dr. Clint Blackwood. Salt Lake Dental Care is located at 279 E 5900 S Ste 202 in Murray. We can be reached at 801-938-8855. Ask us about:

Dental Sealants – Another Tool For Cavity Prevention In Sandy

Dental Sealants - Another Tool For Cavity Prevention In Sandy

Dental patients in the Sandy, Taylorsville, and Draper areas know that regular brushing and flossing are essential for optimal oral health. However, the bristles of your toothbrush can’t reach into every small groove and depression in your teeth, especially the really bumpy back teeth. That’s where sealants can be invaluable.

Dental sealants are a plastic material that is applied by your Salt Lake City dentist. This material is a resin that bonds to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, mainly in the pits and fissures. The plastic acts as a shield against acids and plaque that can damage the enamel.

Many Murray residents might think that sealants are only for children and teenagers, but they can actually be beneficial for adults as well. If you are wondering if sealants are right for you, speak with your Sandy, Taylorsville, or Murray dentist. This simple dental procedure can improve your oral health by protecting the surfaces that are particularly vulnerable to decay.

Many Utah dental insurance providers include dental sealants as a covered benefit, so check with your provider if you are considering them. If you don’t have dental insurance, ask us about financing options. Because they can prevent cavities, dental sealants can save you money in the long run.

I’m Dr. Clint Blackwood, an experienced Murray dentist. Thank you for visiting my dental blog. At our office we serve the Salt Lake City area by offering:

Wisdom teeth removal
Invisalign
Sedation dentistry
Porcelain veneers
Teeth whitening

If you have any questions about these or other cosmetic dental procedures, call us today at 801-938-8855 to schedule a consultation.  Our high-quality staff would be happy to assist you.
