Provo Dental Emergencies

Provo Dental Emergencies Many people will experience at least one tooth emergency in their life. You could break a tooth playing a sport, accidentally dislodge a crown, experience sudden pain caused by an abscess or break a wire on your braces. In the case of a dental emergency, see your Provo dentist as soon as possible!

Following are some immediate treatments:
Broken Tooth: Save any tooth fragments. Rinse mouth with warm water. If the area is bleeding, apply a piece of gauze. A cold compress held on the cheek can reduce swelling and lessen pain. Visit your Provo dentist as soon as you can.

Lost Filling: Save the filling if you can. It can help your dentist determine why it came out. Do not let food get stuck in the hole left by the filling. Do not chew on the tooth. Brush it gently. Call your Provo dentist’s office to schedule an emergency appointment right away.

Displaced Crowns: If there is pain, you may apply a dab of clove oil with a Q-tip to the affected tooth (a common home remedy that may reduce pain). Save the crown. If you can’t see your Provo dentist immediately, you can apply dental cement (available at drugstores) or denture adhesive to temporarily re-attach the crown until you can get to your Provo dentist. Do not use other types of glue or adhesive.

By visiting your Provo dentist as soon as possible, you avoid pain, infection and possible further tooth damage. If you delay treatment, even for a few days, you risk needing more extensive treatment later.

For dental emergencies in and around Orem, call Dr. Chris Hammond at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry. Our phone number is 801-374-0070

Helping Your Smile Last a Lifetime


Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo Cares For Teeth

Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo Cares For Teeth Dentists in Provo are concerned with your oral health and thus care about the condition of your mouth and all of your many teeth. At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry we recognize that your teeth help you both eat and speak. You use your teeth to tear, scrape, and chew food, as well as to form words with your tongue. Teeth are an important part of your oral health and Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry located in Provo, Utah wants to help keep your mouth and teeth healthy.

We humans have two sets of teeth in our lifetime. The first set are your ‘primary teeth’, which many folks often call ‘baby teeth’. Baby teeth typically start to come in at about 6 months old. An average healthy mouth has a total of 20 primary teeth by about age 5.

Your primary teeth will eventually fall out and new teeth known as ‘permanent teeth’ will grow in. Permanent teeth typically begin to come in around age 6, but every person is unique and it could be a little earlier or later. By about age 13 an average healthy mouth should have 28 of the total 32 permanent teeth. The last four permanent teeth may or may not come, but typically come in between the ages of 17 and 21 if they do. Because of the late age that these last teeth come in they are commonly called ‘wisdom teeth’.

Many adults in Provo have their wisdom teeth pulled out because these teeth can be problematic to your oral health, such as crowding a mouth. Other adults in the Provo area may not have these teeth pulled out because they are not causing problems. If you are concerned about the state of your wisdom teeth you can visit our local Provo office and we can help you make a decision.

Caring for all of your teeth whether you are young and have 20 primary teeth or are an adult and have 28 to 32 permanent teeth is important for your overall health. Visiting your Provo dentist regularly, and brushing and flossing daily are great ways to care for your many teeth. Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry located in Provo, cares about your oral health and teeth and can be reached by phone at 801-374-0070.

Veneers Create Stunning Smiles in Orem

Veneers Create Stunning Smiles in Orem Veneers have myriad applications in Provo cosmetic smile dentistry. With veneers, you can transform your smile without significant restorative dental work.

Is your tooth enamel worn and thin? Tooth-colored porcelain veneers have the translucency of healthy tooth enamel. Many Orem dental clients have received veneers to cover worn enamel. Some believe they look twenty years younger!

Have your teeth developed uneven edges? Tooth grinding, natural wear and other factors can roughen tooth edges. Veneers are a minimally invasive correction for uneven tooth edges. Veneers are a popular treatment for Provo cosmetic dentistry patients.

Do you have chips or cracks in your teeth? If your teeth are otherwise healthy, veneers provide a flawless tooth surface. Are your teeth yellow or gray? Veneers can fix that, too. Veneers can be fabricated in any shade to perk up your smile while still blending naturally with your skin tones.

Porcelain veneers are paper-thin, tooth-shaped covers that are affixed to the front of teeth. Traditional veneers required the removal of a thin layer of tooth structure. Prepless veneers are applied to unaltered teeth.

Veneers are strong, natural looking and one of the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedures in Orem and Utah County. Veneers are usually far less expensive than complete crowns, yet they are just as strong and beautiful.

Provo aesthetic dentists love veneers because they correct a multitude of tooth problems. At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry, we would be happy to show you what veneers can do for you. Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry is located at 3575 North 100 East, Suite 200, in Provo, Utah. We provide premium dental care for many of your friends and neighbors in the greater Orem area. Our phone number is 801-374-0070.

Questions To Ask Your Provo Dentist

Questions To Ask Your Provo Dentist Sometimes we research our Provo mechanic or Provo hairdresser more thoroughly than our Provo dental professional. Shouldn’t your dental care be far more important than the condition of your car or the style of your hair? At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry, we love to answer questions about your teeth. You should be asking your Utah dentist any question you have about the care and status of your teeth.

For instance, you may have questions about the school of dentistry and dental specialties studied. Though important, dentistry school is not the only place to gain dental experience, however. Dr. Chris Hammond has been performing complex Utah dental procedures since 1996.

You should also be asking about the dentistry specialties your Provo dentist offers such as tooth restoration, braces and lumineers. These services may not be important to you now, but it is a good idea to have an understanding of your options, and to know what your Provo dentist has to offer.

If you are contemplating smile restoration, tooth implants, or tooth whitening, evaluate Provo cosmetic dentistry options with your dentist. Look at before and after pictures, and ask your Provo dentist what procedures may be right for you.

General dentists offer a variety of Provo dental services such as tooth extractions and tooth fillings, and can treat every member of the family. At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry, we specialize in cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers and sedation dentistry.
