5 Cavity Basics For Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City Cosmetic Dentist

Some of the most popular dental topics discussed in Sandy and Murray relate to cosmetic dentistry, such as teeth whitening, veneers, and dental implants. However, the desire to avoid cavities is still the main reason Taylorsville and Draper residents visit their dentists, so today the Murray dental blog is going to highlight the 5 things you need to know about cavities.

1. Cavities can also be called caries or tooth decay. When a tooth is permanently damaged in the hard surface, tiny openings occur. These little holes are cavities.

2. Factors that contribute to tooth decay are:

Frequent eating
Consuming sugary beverages
Oral bacteria
Poor dental hygiene

3. Cavities may get so bad that you will see pits or holes in your teeth, but symptoms may be more subtle, such as sensitivity, pain when biting, or a toothache. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should call your Sandy, Taylorsville, or Draper dentist today for an appointment.

4. Cavities are more common among children, but that doesn’t mean adults don’t have to take precautions.

5. Avoiding cavities is simple. Be sure to brush twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, eat right and avoid snacking, and have regular visits with your dentist.

If you are in the market for quality dental care in the Murray area, give Salt Lake Dental Care a call. We have been treating dental patients in and around Salt Lake City since 2005. We can also answer any questions you have about cosmetic dentistry procedures such as gum contouring and smile makeovers.

Salt Lake City Wants Silver Screen Smiles

Salt Lake City Wants Silver Screen Smiles

With the constant media coverage of celebrities, many Murray dental patients are interested in having a smile like the stars. With an experienced dentist and the right smile makeover procedures, anyone can have a smile they want to show off.

Many smile makeovers include teeth whitening. There are a variety of ways this can be done. Most Sandy, Taylorsville, and Draper drugstores sell over-the-counter whitening strips and gels. Your Salt Lake City dentist can recommend an effective one, or he or she may offer in-office bleaching. This is a quick way to see whiter teeth in less than an hour.

For missing teeth, most Salt Lake City cosmetic dentists will recommend a dental implant. Because a dental implant is anchored into the jawbone, it looks and feels just like a natural tooth. A dental implant prevents jawbone recession and the shifting of adjacent teeth.

Veneers are especially popular in the Salt Lake City area. They cover the front of the teeth and are custom-made for each individual patient. These are useful for Murray patients who have broken or chipped teeth, stained teeth, or gaps between teeth that they would like to hide.

Enamel shaping, bonding, braces, and gum contouring are other successful treatments that can be used to help your teeth look their best.

I’m Dr. Clint Blackwood, a trusted and experienced Murray dentist. If you are looking for quality dental care in the Sandy, Taylorsville, or Draper area, I hope you’ll give us a call at 801-938-8855 to schedule a consultation.

We offer wisdom teeth removal, Invisalign, sedation dentistry, and porcelain veneers.

Is Your Smile Holding You Back?

Draper cosmetic smile makeover

Have you ever had to take an unexpected trip to the grocery store looking completely disheveled in a rush to buy an emergency item – say cough medicine for a sick spouse or a must-have poster board for your child’s school assignment? On such an occasion you will inevitably bump into someone you know. How do you feel in your ill-fitting sweatpants and stained T-shirt? Or worse yet, pajamas.

Our outward appearance affects the way we feel inside. In professional situations, don’t you feel more confident when you are wearing flattering, pulled-together business clothes? Aren’t you more likely to express your opinion when you are comfortable in your own skin?

When meeting someone for the first time, don’t you feel better when you are having a good hair day or have cleared up a recent bout of acne? Blind dates are brutal when you don’t feel at the top of your game.

Attractive clothing, well-groomed hair, and a fit body boost self-esteem for most Murray folks. But do you know what people notice before any of these features? Your face. Specifically, your smile and eyes. Multiple studies have shown that awesome teeth and eyes immediately capture attention. Now, it’s difficult to change your eyes unless you get colored contacts.

To Chew Or Not To Chew In Murray

To Chew Or Not To Chew In Murray

Hello Murray gum chewers, today we’re going to talk about that sticky wad in your mouth. You know that it can freshen your breath, but can it really help prevent cavities?

It really depends on the type of gum. Chewing regular sucrose-based gum can help remove bits of food from the surface of teeth, but that benefit is negated by the stream of sugar washing over your teeth as you chew.

However, gum with some alternative sweeteners have an added benefit for your pearly whites. Xylitol is a sweetener which not only has fewer calories than traditional sugars, but it also has antimicrobial properties that reduce plaque buildup. This means that xylitol inhibits the growth of bacteria that causes tooth decay.

So if you’re headed out to any restaurants in the Sandy, Taylorsville, or Draper area, bring a pack of sugar-free gum with you and pop it in your mouth when your meal is done. Of course, brushing and flossing are a better option for your oral health, but when you can’t brush, choose a sugarless gum with xylitol to chew.

I’m Dr. Clint Blackwood of Salt Lake Dental Care. I want my patients to have the best oral health possible. If you have any questions about how to improve your oral health, or if you would like to learn more about any of our cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, and complete smile makeovers, give us a call today at 801-938-8855.

We offer wisdom teeth removal, Invisalign, and sedation dentistry. Call our high-quality staff today for an appointment!

Whitening For 3 Types Of Tooth Stains In Sandy

Murray Teeth Bleaching

Hello Sandy! If your smile could use some brightening, what are you waiting for? Professional teeth whitening and teeth bleaching are the easiest ways Murray residents can dramatically improve their appearance.

It is important to realize that not every smile responds the same to teeth bleaching. The degree of whiteness attained and the treatment time necessary depends on the type of stains being treated.

1. Surface or extrinsic stains are the most accessible and easiest to remove. They are caused by the usual suspects: coffee, tea, wine, cola, smoking, and the natural aging process.

2. Intrinsic stains can be lightened but it may take a bit longer. These stains form from the inside out but are visible through the enamel. They can be caused by trauma, tetracycline antibiotics, infection, or excessive fluoride use in childhood before the enamel is fully formed.

3. Combination: Some Murray dental patients have both extrinsic and intrinsic staining. As we age, our teeth change – regardless of how well we take care of them. Two things that work against us are that our enamel thins while the dentin underneath fades and yellows. Again, the extrinsic stains on the enamel are the quickest to lighten, but ongoing treatment with a peroxide-based penetrating whitener can lighten the deeper discoloration.

It is best to trust fast teeth whitening treatment to the care of an experienced dentist such as Clint Blackwood of Salt Lake Dental Care in Murray. Clint Blackwood and the experienced team of dental professionals at Salt Lake Dental Care have been brightening smiles since 2005. We also offer wisdom teeth removal, Invisalign, sedation dentistry, porcelain veneers, and teeth whitening.

Upgrade your face value by brightening your smile!

The Tea And Teeth Question

Murray teeth bleaching best price

What do you call a dentist who doesn’t like tea?
Why, Denis, of course.

Joking aside, a common concern for Draper patients can be stained teeth. I’m Dr. Clint Blackwood of Salt Lake Dental Care. Today, let’s talk a little bit about a common cause of tooth staining: dark beverages, including tea.

Over time, tea can stain the plaque that may eventually turn into tartar. Plaque can be brushed and flossed away. Thorough daily rituals of oral cleaning are valuable for this. Tartar (which forms if the plaque remains on the teeth for over 24 hours), on the other hand, will need to be removed in-office during a teeth cleaning appointment. Either way, between cleanings a wise method for avoiding tea staining is to rinse with water after drinking tea or to eat something and then to be sure to brush and floss all surfaces of the teeth at the end of the day.

If the color of your teeth is still unsatisfactory after a professional cleaning, teeth whitening is a popular option. Our other services include:

Sedation dentistry
Teeth whitening
Wisdom teeth removal
Porcelain veneers
Invisalign

The cost of living is going up in Draper, Sandy, and Taylorsville. Come on in, Salt Lake City, and let us share our competitive pricing, financial options, and superb service with you. Cosmetic dentistry may be less pricey than you think.

Now you know that tea doesn’t have to stain teeth permanently. What’s your next question?
