Five Fast Ways to Improve Your Smile

cosmetic dental and implants ProvoDo you have a special event coming up? Perhaps a wedding, graduation, milestone birthday, anniversary, or reunion? At Hammond Aesthetic and General Dentistry in Provo we have five cosmetic dentistry procedures that can usually be completed in one office visit, to quickly improve your smile!

  • Veneers. Porcelain veneers have been a successful treatment for decades but we never fail to be amazed by the results. A veneer is a super-thin layer of porcelain bonded permanently to the front of a tooth. A veneer can cover a chip, hide a crack, make discoloration disappear, or correct a misshapen tooth.
  • Gum Contouring. Perhaps your teeth are sensational and healthy but you have a gumline that is too low or too high and detracts from the presentation. Gum contouring can reshape the gumline and beautify your smile.
  • Enamel Shaping. Just one slightly misshapen tooth can downgrade the aspects of a smile even if all the other teeth look great. Let us reshape the tooth so it blends in seamlessly.
  • Bonding. Dental bonding just gets better and better. Bonding is used in a multitude of applications to fix teeth with cosmetic and structural problems. The newest prep techniques are minimally invasive – leaving you with more of your own tooth structure.
  • Teeth Whitening. Make your smile pop with professional in-office teeth whitening. There is nothing like a terrific white smile to give you optimal confidence.

Cosmetic dentistry from Hammond Aesthetic and General Dentistry in Provo is an investment that will bless you every day. We’ve improved the smiles of people from American Fork and Lehi, who also come to our office for family dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today!

Do Veneers Make Teeth Look Bigger?

Utah County cosmetic dental and tooth implants

Porcelain veneers do not make your teeth look larger – unless you want them to. A veneer can correct many flaws and is a minimally invasive restoration. Porcelain veneers are among the cosmetic dentistry procedures available at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo.

Veneers are an easy way to cover chips or cracks in your teeth, or gaps between them. They are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic cemented to the front of your teeth. Each veneer is custom-fitted to the tooth it is being affixed to.

Although veneers are generally considered a cosmetic procedure, they can also be used to replace lost enamel. The enamel that covers teeth is one of the strongest substances in the human body, but it can be damaged from years of consuming acidic foods or drinks, by acid reflux, or even by brushing your teeth too vigorously over the years. Veneers are an excellent remedy.

One caveat: when a veneer is placed over a tooth, a thin layer of existing enamel must be removed to make room for it. That means they are a permanent procedure.

Porcelain veneers are just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures offered here at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo. Find out why people from American Fork and Lehi trust us with their smiles! Call for an appointment today!

Retaining Brightness After Teeth Whitening Treatment

professional tooth whitening Provo

Once you brighten your smile with professional teeth whitening at Hammond Aesthetic and General Dentistry in Provo, you’ll want the results to last as long as possible. But you must be careful: the same things that stained your teeth to begin with can stain them again. There are some things you can do retain that newly-whitened smile.

Do’s

First, use an oral rinse every day. There are many over-the-counter products with whitening agents to help keep your smile bright. As a bonus, they can improve your overall oral hygiene.

Don’ts

There are certain things that really do a number of your teeth: drinking coffee, tea, soft drinks, and red wine; smoking; even certain medications. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask us.

Avoid acidic foods and beverages. These can weaken or wear away the enamel on your teeth. Weak enamel allows the yellow dentin to show through.

Artificial coloring in many foods can stain your newly whitened teeth. Candy, popsicles, and fruit punch are examples.

Remember the Basics

Regular brushing goes a long way toward keeping your white smile. Try for twice a day. Whitening toothpastes can help the process. Brush for at least two minutes, and remember to get along the gumline.

It doesn’t take too much effort to make your whitened smile last. At Hammond Aesthetic and General Dentistry in Provo we have have brightened countless smiles with teeth whitening. Patients from American Fork and Lehi come to us for whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. Call us to set up an appointment 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!

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!
