It’s Time to Upgrade Your Smile
What Cosmetic Dentistry Can Correct
Select Treatments at SLC Family Dental
Veneers in Salt Lake City, UT are thin shells of porcelain that cover just the front portion of the teeth that show when you smile. Once your teeth have been modified (a small portion of enamel removed), veneers fit naturally and restore the proper size, shape, and alignment of your teeth. With minimal maintenance and maximum longevity, porcelain veneers are a beneficial and hassle-free choice for renewing your smile.
Same-Day Dental Crowns
Crowns are porcelain or ceramic “caps” for your teeth that conceal cosmetic and functional damage. They are durable and crack-resistant, which makes them a good choice for molars and front teeth that are cracked/, broken, or misshapen. A tooth crown can generally last 15 years or more when cared for properly.
Our in-house, computer-aided technology called CEREC eliminates the need for temporary crowns. CEREC enables creating same-day dental crowns in Salt Lake City, UT made of metal-free, high-grade ceramic material that closely matches the composition of your natural tooth structure.
Same-Day Dental Bridges
Bridges are a fixed replacement for one or more missing teeth. Made up of two or more custom dental crowns fused together, dental bridges effectively restore function and aesthetics to your smile. They can also keep remaining teeth from shifting out of place and altering your bite. Dental bridges can also be attached to dental implants instead of adjacent natural teeth. As with our crowns, in-house CEREC technology means you can get same-day bridges in one visit!
Professional teeth whitening ranges from 1-hour in-office whitening sessions to KöR whitening, the only recognized system in the world that will even whiten tetracycline (dark) stained teeth. These take-home home trays with professional-grade bleaching gel are only worn while you sleep, so they won’t interfere with your daily activities. Depending on your time constraints and preferences, teeth whitening in Salt Lake City, UT can be customized to your needs as well as your specific smile goals. Our cosmetic dentist will monitor your treatment to ensure your whitening is natural and aesthetically pleasing.
Inlays and Onlays
Sometimes teeth only need small cosmetic adjustments to restore their natural aesthetics and function. If you don’t need a complete crown, we offer inlays and onlays to spruce up your smile instead. Inlays replace an inside portion of a tooth and onlays restore one or more cusps of a tooth to renew strength and structure.
Gum Recession Treatment
Although gums don’t grow back, two procedures offered at SLC Family Dental can reverse receding gums. During traditional gum grafting, we take a small piece of gum tissue from a different place in your mouth and use it to cover the exposed tooth roots. The innovative Pinhole® Surgical Technique involves making a small hole in your gum tissue below the recession site, then gently loosening, guiding, and reshaping your gum tissue over the receded part of your tooth with specially designed instruments.
During this procedure, we improve the aesthetics of your smile by removing excess gum tissue around your upper teeth to make them look longer. If your gum line is uneven, crown lengthening can sculpt it to produce a more symmetrical, balanced smile. This procedure is sometimes done to expose more of your tooth’s crown to support a filling or restoration.
Crooked teeth almost always result in cosmetic concerns, even if their misalignment isn’t causing functional problems affecting your bite. We offer a range of orthodontic treatment that can be tailored to your needs, including clear aligners in Salt Lake City, UT. ClearCorrect braces offered at SLC Family Dental are a comfortable and attractive alternative for busy adults who don’t want to deal with traditional metal braces. We’ll help you determine the most optimal solution to correct your crooked teeth and improve the beauty of your smile. Orthodontic treatment generally lasts between 6-24 months, depending on your unique case.
