Cosmetic Dentistry: Art and Science

At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo, we create beautiful smiles with cosmetic dentistry.

It’s been said that cosmetic dentistry is part science and part art. That is a short-and-sweet definition for what we do. More to the point, though, is that we use sound dental techniques to bring positive changes to the smiles of our patients.

Smile enhancement through cosmetic dentistry can have positive changes on your life. The smallest improvement can boost your self-confidence. We have many techniques we can use, depending on the state of your smile: we can correct teeth that are discolored, chipped, mis-shapen, and even missing.

Traditional dentistry addrtesses the health of your teeth and gums, and that certainly has its place in what we do. Cosmetic dentistry aims to complement the overall general and dental health of each patient. We do more than recommend specific procedures. We consider the shape, alignment, color and condition of the teeth, and the facial shape and coloring of each patient. There is no one-size-fits-all treatment. (If only!)

Your teeth take a lot of wear and tear over the years. But cosmetic dentistry from Hammond Aesthetic and General Dentistry can restore your smile to its youthful appearance. Possibilities include porcelain veneers and Invisalign clear braces. Call us today to schedule a consultation.

Sparkling Smiles With Safe Bleaching

affordable teeth bleaching Provo

One of the easiest ways to brighten your smile cosmetically is by teeth whitening at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo. It’s a simple, non-invasive method to improve your overall appearance and bring confidence to your daily interactions with people.

Before beginning the procedure of teeth whitening, we recommend meeting with us for a consultation. This will help determine which whitening method is best for you. We can also discuss foods and habits, such as smoking, that you can avoid to keep your teeth whiter longer.

During the consult, we can also discuss other aspects of your smile you would like to improve. New, industry-leading technology provides methods to correct any dental problem you may have.

How white you want your teeth to be? Depending on the whitening method chosen, your teeth can be whitened three to eight shades in just an hour. An in-office procedure produces a degree of lightening that cannot be achieved with a grocery store product.

It is essential to understand that whitening does not affect existing fillings, veneers, or crowns. It also is temporary and may require follow-up visits to keep them white.

Teeth whitening is just one of the cosmetic dentistry services we offer at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo. Schedule a consultation with us today!

Teeth Look Too Short? Lengthen Them!

fix gummy smile Provo

There are multiple cosmetic dentistry procedures that can upgrade your smile, and they’re available at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo.

There are porcelain veneers: a custom made, wafer-thin covering permanently attached to the front of a tooth to make it stain-free and perfectly shaped. Veneers can repair small chips and crack in teeth that are free of decay. Many patients get minimally invasive veneers on their top six teeth for a dramatic improvement.

Orthodontia has received a lot of attention in Utah in the past twenty years with the introduction of Invisalign and short-term braces. And braces are not only for ‘tweens and teenagers. We have seen more adults straighten their teeth to achieve dazzling smiles with discrete orthodontic treatment.

A cosmetic dental procedure that is lesser known in the Provo area is crown lengthening. If you feel that your teeth appear too short or that your smile exposes more gum than you would like (a ‘gummy smile’), you may be interested in crown lengthening.

Crown lengthening surgery is a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth while minimizing the vertical length of exposed gum tissue.

When a gummy smile is corrected, our Provo crown lengthening patients are often surprised at how it positively affects their whole face. They love their new smile which reveals pleasing, symmetrical portions of their upper teeth that have been hidden under gum tissue their whole life.

Sometimes, crown lengthening is used when a tooth is fractured at the gumline. The surgery makes tooth structure accessible for the necessary restoration.

Digital imaging helps Orem dental professionals perform crown lengthening with exactness. A highly-detailed, 3-D image of tooth and bone structure allows the cosmetic dentist to contour a gumline to the patient’s exact specifications.

Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo provides a full range of cosmetic dentistry services. We also offer sedation dentistry to those patients with dental anxiety. Call us today to schedule an appointment.

Healthy Living Starts With A Smile

general dentistry Provo

What comes to mind when you hear the term “healthy living?” A dinner plate with a grilled chicken breast and carrot sticks? The sound of your feet rhythmically hitting the ground on your favorite jogging footpath? A cholesterol test indicating that your arteries are in great shape? If you pictured a white, healthy smile or a dental X-ray showing no dental caries, Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo salutes you.

At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry, we urge everyone with a smile (that includes you!) to include oral health in your definition of “healthy living.”

When done thoroughly and consistently, brushing and flossing are an integral component of everyday oral hygiene. Brushing should be done at least twice a day. We recommend a soft-bristled toothbrush to guard your gums. Brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes and make sure you reach all the surfaces.

Flossing should be done once a day and is necessary for reaching the areas that a toothbrush can’t. A wide variety of floss can be found at Provo stores, so experiment until find one you like.

At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo, we provide a range of cosmetic dentistry procedures, and aim to give you your dream smile. Schedule a consultation with us today.
