You Be The Judge

smile makeover cost Provo

A great smile can light up a room, and if that smile is yours you are bound to make a great first impression. You can transform your smile with cosmetic dentistry from Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo.

Are you skeptical? We invite you to judge for yourself.

Few of us were born with perfect teeth. Cosmetic dentistry uses sound dental techniques to improve the appearance of your teeth. Even one procedure can make a big difference to your smile, and several will give you a complete makeover.

The available procedures include:

  • Teeth whitening. This may be the most popular one we’ve got. Yes, there are plenty of over-the-counter products for brightening smiles. None of them can compare to the results you’ll get from professional teeth whitening.
  • Porcelain veneers. Our teeth undergo a lot of wear and tear over the years. Porcelain veneers are custom-made shells of medical-grade ceramic that we attach to the front of your teeth to cover chips, gaps, and other imperfections.
  • Dental crowns. Crowns are used to repair teeth that have been damaged in accidents or eroded by decay. They give a tooth new strength and improved appearance.
  • Bonding. Dental bonding involves the application of a putty-like resin directly to the teeth. We can correct small chips, coat discolored teeth, and even fill in small cavities.

Cosmetic dentistry from Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo can give you a whole new smile, but we’ll let you be the judge! Find out why people from American Fork and Lehi come to our practice to improve the appearance of their smiles, and for complete family dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today!

Dull to Dazzling: Professional Teeth Whitening

Maybe you’ve always wanted a dazzling, movie star smile. Or maybe your teeth have just grown dull with the passage of time. Whatever the reason might be, you’re one of millions of Americans who want to brighten their smiles with teeth whitening. At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo, we can help!

There are already plenty of options. Take a stroll down the dental care aisle at the store, and you’ll see an almost bewildering selection of teeth whitening products: everything from toothpaste to strips to bleaching trays.

Most of these products can be moderately effective. But whitening toothpaste generally takes only the surface stains off of your teeth, and you may be disappointed with the end result. Whitening strips are more effective; they rely on hydrogen peroxide to remove stains. Bleaching trays are also good. But none of them can match professional teeth whitening.

We offer highly effective in-office teeth whitening that can transform your smile in a single visit. You have the option of GLO! Teeth Whitening, or the Boost Whitening System.

At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo, teeth whitening is just one of our cosmetic dentistry porcedures. People from American Fork and Lehi come to our practice for their dream smiles! Call for an appointment today!

A Ginormous Cavity?

Provo Cosmetic Dentistry

When we repair a decayed or damaged tooth at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo, the procedure we use depends on the location of the problem.

If there is a chip, crack, or tooth decay on the biting surface of a tooth, an inlay or onlay is often created to restore it.

Inlays and onlays are usually bigger than a conventional filling, yet smaller than a complete crown. An inlay is used to fill an area inside the cusp tips or bumps of a tooth. An onlay covers an area that includes more than one cusp.

Our inlays and onlays:

  • Are stain resistant
  • Do not result in tooth sensitivity
  • Are beautifully matched to natural teeth
  • Strengthen the tooth and safeguard against further decay or degeneration

At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo, we use a variety of procedures to repair teeth and restore smiles. People from American Fork and Lehi come to our practice for family and cosmetic dentistry, and a full range of other services. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

Reinvent Yourself With A Smile Makeover

Lehi smile makeover

A cosmetic dentistry smile makeover from Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo brings with it many benefits: from improved appearance and self-confidence to improved dental health. There are a lot of different procedures to choose from.

While the most obvious benefit of a smile makeover is a beautiful new smile, we never overlook the dental health aspects. Available procedures can improve the functioning of your teeth and bite, and since your teeth will probably be easier to care for, you’ll have healthier teeth and gums.

Cosmetic dentistry procedures include:

  • Bonding
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Crowns (also known as caps)
  • Orthodontics
  • Whitening
  • Teeth reshaping
  • Dental implants

Some of these procedures, like bonding and veneers, restore teeth that are cracked and broken. Crowns can strengthen teeth that are worn or damaged. Orthodontics and reshaping can improve speaking and chewing ability. All of them make your smile look great!

At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo, a cosmetic dentistry smile makeover may be just the answer for your dental needs. People from American Fork and Lehi also come to us for family dentistry services. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

Go Back In Time

cosmetic dental and implants Orem

So you’ve lost some teeth and hesitate to smile because of the gaps. If only you could go back in time and regain that full-toothed smile you once had. Guess what? With dental implants from Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo, you can!

For most patients, a dental implant is the ideal replacement for a missing tooth, because it replaces both the root and crown. They feel so authentic that some people forget they’re there!

A dental implant is a titanium post inserted into the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. A supporting device (called an abutment) and crown connect to the post.

While a single implant can support one artificial tooth, multiple implants can support a set of dentures.

Dental implants are available here at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo. Patients from American Fork and Lehi also come to our office for complete family dentistry services. Schedule your next checkup with us today!

Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?

porcelain veneers cost Orem

Are yellowing teeth getting you down? If so, you are not alone! Everyone, it seems, would like to have whiter teeth and a better smile. Teeth whitening at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo may be just what what you need.

Of course, there are plenty of over-the-counter products you might want to try. Any grocery store will have plenty of options in the dental care aisle: every major brand of toothpaste, it seems, offers a whitening version.

Whitening toothpastes work by adding chemical agents that can gently polish and whiten teeth. They do a fairly good job, and the abrasives in them are no harder on tooth enamel than ordinary toothpastes. However, these products can only remove stains that are on the surface. This generally results in whitening by roughly one shade.

Professional whitening, on the other hand, can whiten your teeth up to eight shades. We have two options: Glo in-office whitening, and the Boost take-home version. Both are safe and effective. The in-office version can whiten your smile in just one visit!

Professional teeth whitening at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo is just one of our cosmetic dentistry options. People from American Fork and Lehi come to our practice to improve their smiles! Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

It Doesn’t Take Long To Beautify Your Smile

dental implants Provo

At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo, we can improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry by restoring cracked or discolored teeth, by straightening them, or even replacing those that are missing.

We all want to have the best possible smiles, but cosmetic dentistry is more than just appearance. Straight teeth are easier to care for, and make for a healthier smile. That may explain why clear braces are so popular. They can straighten your teeth, and are almost undetectable as you wear them.

Also in demand are porcelain veneers. They can transform your appearance and are minimally invasive. A thin layer of tooth enamel is removed before veneers are permanently attached to your teeth. After that, you’ve got a mega-watt smile.

Dental implants are, in many ways, one of the most significant advances in the history of dentistry. Titanium posts inserted in the jaw can support one or more replacement teeth that look and function like the real thing.

At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo, cosmetic dentistry can restore your smile. People from American Fork and Lehi come to our office for these procedures, and for our complete family dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment today!

Is Tooth Decay Contagious?

tooth decay prevention Provo

This message from Hammond Aesthetic and General Dentistry in Provo is about bacteria and cavities. Your mouth has 200-300 types of bacteria, but most of them do not cause tooth decay.

Bacteria that cause decay are in the mutans streptococcus family. They mix with sugar to create a powerful acid. The acid reduces the calcium in tooth enamel. When the bacteria remains on teeth, it produces a yellowish substance called plaque. Plaque is brutally effective at drilling into tooth enamel and causing cavities. Minerals in saliva and fluoride help enamel re-mineralize.

Special Caution for Parents

The tooth decay bacteria can spread through saliva. People in close contact with one another are at risk. Sharing spoons or kissing are two avenues. Mothers, fathers, siblings, and caregivers can give the bacteria to babies.

Young children whose teeth are forming are at a heightened risk. It’s important that moms and dads protect their children from early tooth decay. Start teaching daily oral hygiene as soon as your child’s first tooth erupts. Childhood cavities are so common that some parents believe it’s just part of growing up. It isn’t!

At Hammond Aesthetic and General Dentistry in Provo we strongly recommend daily brushing with fluoridated toothpaste. Don’t forget to floss! Our services include family and cosmetic dentistry. Call for an appointment today!
