4 Smile Boosters

Lehi cosmetic dental and tooth implants

Hi, my name is Drs. Chris Hammond. My dental practice, Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry, has been serving the Provo, Utah area since 1967. Today in my Orem dental blog, I would like to highlight four ways you can improve your smile.

1. Teeth Whitening is quick and non-invasive. External tooth whitening occurs when teeth whitening agents bleach the teeth directly. This can be done in your home or in the office of your dentist.

2. Dental Implants are another common procedure that many Provo residents seek. A dental implant is secured into the jawbone to replace the roots of a lost tooth. A crown is then attached to the implant to replace the missing tooth. Along with improving appearance and restoring tooth function, the dental implant does double-duty by helping to preserve bone support.

3. Dental Bonding can be done with various materials such as porcelains and composite resins. With recent advances in cosmetic dental services, these materials can more precisely replicate natural tooth structure and natural appearance. This procedure is commonly used to correct chipped or cracked teeth.

4. Periodontal Plastic Surgery is a wonderful solution for gum recession and cosmetic irregularities. Gum tissue is removed or added to give the appropriate framework to the teeth.

I hope this post has helped you to get better acquainted with some highly effective cosmetic dentistry treatments. A combination of procedures can be used to give Provo dental patients a complete smile redesign.

To schedule an appointment at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry, give us a call at 801-374-0070.

Veneers Explained For Utah County Dental Patients

Hello! We are so glad you came to the Provo dental health blog. This is the place where we take the time to answer some of the questions cosmetic dentistry patients in the Orem area are curious about. Today we are discussing veneers. You may have heard the word veneer used in conjunction with cosmetic dentistry, and that is because they are a popular and effective cosmetic dentistry tool.

Veneers are covers for the front part of the teeth. They are usually used to correct tooth imperfections, such as chipping, staining, decay, or crooked teeth. Super-strong, tooth-colored porcelain laminate is shaped into thin shells and custom-fitted for each patient’s unique set of teeth.

The first step in the veneer process is to make a mold to work from. Your Utah County, American Fork, or Lehi dentist will make the model of your teeth. After that, a dental technician will use the model to create the veneers.

It is important to note that because a little of the enamel from the tooth has to be removed so the veneers can be placed, this process is usually irreversible.

If you are in the Lehi area and are looking for a dentist, give Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry a call. My name is Drs. Dr. Hammond and I have been serving Provo, Utah since 1967.

Please call 801-374-0070 and a member of our caring staff can answer any questions you have about veneers, teeth whitening, dental care, or smile makeovers.

Floss Pick Facts For Provo

fast teeth whitening Orem

Dental patients who live in the Utah County, American Fork, and Lehi area want to keep their mouths as healthy and clean as possible. However, they are also looking for convenience, and that’s why many of them turn to floss picks instead of old-fashioned dental floss.

These little tools are quite handy. They usually have a handle that is pointed and can double as a toothpick, and a length of floss strung in a U-shaped groove. They are inexpensive and can be used more discreetly than floss.

While this may seem like a dream come true for those hoping to make flossing a more regular part of their oral health routine, floss picks are still a step below actual floss in effectiveness.

The American Dental Association has only approved dental floss for cleaning in between teeth. One issue is that floss picks can’t curve and form the angles needed for superior cleaning.

So, what is a responsible dental patient to do? The first thing is to communicate with your Provo, Utah dentist and see what their opinion is. If you love floss picks, continue to use them when convenient, but still try to use regular dental floss daily.

If you are in the process of looking for a new dentist, we hope that you consider Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry. We have been serving the Orem area since 1967 from our Provo practice.

Our caring staff would love to answer any questions you have regarding flossing and other dental health concerns, as well as questions about cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening and veneers.

Call 801-374-0070 today to schedule an exam or consultation.

Provo Dental Patients Want A Choice In Dental Fillings

Provo Dental Patients Want A Choice In Dental Fillings

With all the talk in Provo of multi-procedure smile makeovers involving veneers, porcelain crowns, bridges, teeth whitening, dental implants, and invisible braces, sometimes the traditional dental filling is overlooked. If a cavity progresses no further than a filling, Utah cosmetic dental patients can avoid more extensive and invasive treatments. Today, let’s talk about dental fillings.

Most dental patients in the Provo and Orem area have a few fillings in their mouth. When a tooth has been damaged through decay, a dental filling is the most common way Utah family dentists restore the tooth to its previous, intact condition.

Dental fillings have been used for over a hundred years, and they’ve come a long way from the silvery amalgam fillings many of us in the Utah County area remember.

Provo cosmetic dentists and dental labs have been working to formulate filling materials that are more cosmetically pleasing to their Utah patients.

Today, the filling material of choice in Provo and around the country is a composite of plastic resin with glass or quartz filler. Referred to as composite fillings, Provo dental patients love the fact that they can be matched to their natural tooth color, making them practically invisible. This is particularly important when the filling needs to be in a conspicuous part of the mouth, such as the front teeth.

Despite the popularity of tooth-colored fillings, many Provo dentists still find amalgam fillings appropriate in some cases. Dental amalgam is made from a metal alloy, which gives it the ability to hold strong even when the chewing load is great.

We’re Dr. Hammond, cosmetic Provo dentists, and we work hard to make sure our clients enjoy their dental visits and love their smiles. We find it especially rewarding when Orem, Utah County, and Provo residents find renewed confidence after a smile makeover. So whether you are interested in replacing metal fillings with composites, or if you want to discuss tooth whitening and veneers, our staff would be happy to answer any questions you have.

Provo Dental News: Poor Oral Health And Heart Disease

Top Provo Family Dentists Attention Provo dental patients: brushing twice daily may help lower your risk of heart disease. Utah scientists, dentists, and cardiologists have known for many years that there is a link between inflammation in the mouth (gum disease) and heart problems. However, a recent study analyzed oral health habits and heart disease risk. Science Daily reported on the study, which was published in the British Medical Journal.

We quote from the Science Daily article:

“The authors, led by Professor Richard Watt from University College London, analyzed data from over 11,000 adults who took part in a Scottish Health Survey. The research team analyzed data about lifestyle behaviors such as smoking, physical activity, and oral health routines.”

“Once the data was adjusted for established cardio risk factors, the researchers found that participants who reported less frequent toothbrushing had a 70 percent extra risk of heart disease compared to individuals who brushed their teeth twice a day.”

We are Dr. Hammond DDS of Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry. The Scottish survey is one of many that confirms the link between oral health and overall health. Simply put: you aren’t healthy unless your gums and teeth are healthy.

It doesn’t matter if you are a lean Provo distance runner with a pulse of fifteen beats a minute and a blood pressure of 100 over 60. It doesn’t matter if you are an Orem vegan who has eaten a nutritionally balanced, low-fat diet for the past five years. If you have inflamed gums and tooth decay, you are at risk for problems in other areas of your body.

The phone number for Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry is 801-374-0070. If you have concerns about your oral health, I invite you to schedule an examination today.

Perhaps your teeth and gums are healthy but you wish your smile was more attractive. We can help you! We offer complete smile redesigns. Porcelain veneers, crowns, inlays/onlays, and orthodontia are all available to solve any cosmetic problems you wish to correct.

If you have a small child who has not visited a pediatric dentist in Provo yet, now is the time. My caring team and I will help keep your child’s smile beautiful for life.
