One of Salt Lake's Top Rated Dentists
Dental Services We Offer
Dental implants are one of the most effective ways to replace missing teeth. For dental implants, a type of screw is implanted into the jaw. A tooth-shaped replacement is screwed into the top. Implants create a natural feel and appearance. They also prevent further problems from occurring after tooth loss, such as jawbone deterioration and shifting of the remaining teeth.
Same Day Crowns
We keep up-to-date with all of the latest advances in dental technology! Our CEREC machine allows us to create crowns on the same day as your appointment. This prevents the need for waiting weeks at a time with uncomfortable temporary crowns. It also ensures that your dental work can be completed in just one visit!
Accidents happen and emergency dental visits do arrive! We understand this, which is why we offer emergency dental services. If you have a tooth fall out or are experiencing significant pain, don’t wait! Come to see us immediately.
Dental phobia is extremely common and often prevents people from visiting the dentist as much as they should. We offer sedation dentistry services to make your dental visit go as smoothly as possible.
Root canals become necessary when the pulp of your tooth becomes infected. During a root canal, the dentist clears out the infected pulp from the tooth. A root canal may be the last way to prevent tooth loss, which is why it is important to have tooth problems treated as soon as possible.
Having wisdom teeth removed may be essential in protecting your smile. Wisdom teeth can cause overcrowding and even infection, if the tooth becomes impacted. They can make it more difficult to clean your teeth, leading to even more problems. We offer wisdom tooth removal services to prevent all of these problems from occurring.
Veneers are one of the most efficient ways to drastically improve your smile. They are thin ceramic shells that are placed over your teeth. Veneers are able to completely customize your smile, allowing you to choose size, shape, and shade of white.
Braces are no longer the only solution for straightening your teeth. Through the use of Invisalign, you can subtly straighten your teeth. Invisalign uses clear retainers that guide your teeth into proper alignment.
Dentures are ideal for replacing a full set of teeth. They can greatly improve your quality of life by allowing you to chew food properly and restoring your smile.
Dental bridges are an option for replacing multiple teeth. They are typically anchored to the surrounding teeth, so they do require healthy teeth left in the mouth. Dental bridges are able to replace one or multiple teeth, depending on your needs.
No method of whitening is quite as effective as an in-office whitening treatment. We are able to brighten your teeth by several shades, usually in less than an hour. Teeth whitening treatments can significantly increase your confidence, as well as the appearance of your smile.
Dental cleanings are necessary to keep your teeth healthy. You should have your teeth cleaned professionally every 6 months. A dental cleaning will help remove plaque and tartar from your teeth, helping to prevent tooth decay from occurring.
