It is impossible to overestimate a confident smile's emotional, social, and even professional benefits. If you find yourself covering your mouth when you grin or even holding back your smile because you do not want to reveal your teeth, you should think about what cosmetic dentistry – the art of smile improvement — may do for you.

Nowadays, so much can be done to improve the look of a person's smile at any age. Numerous exciting options range from robust, professional whitening procedures to wonderfully realistic porcelain veneers and state-of-the-art dental implants.

A thorough dental examination at 3rd South Dental, Salt Lake City, Utah, is the first step in any smile makeover to ensure that your aesthetic issues are just that and not a sign of underlying tooth illness. Once we have confirmed your health, you can improve the appearance of your smile in a variety of ways.


What are the Available Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures?

Dental Crowns

Sometimes, a tooth may be decayed, cracked, chipped, or unsightly but still viable. Covering the tooth with a lifelike ceramic crown made from tooth-colored material can change someone's appearance immediately. It is a simple procedure that should take no more than two visits to 3rd South Dental, Salt Lake City, Utah. The first visit entails removing the outer layer of the affected tooth and making an impression so that the crown fits perfectly. While we make the permanent crown, your dentist will use a temporary one to protect the tooth. The second visit will be the fitting, adjusting, and cementing the permanent crown. A dental crown fits over a tooth like a cap. Your dental crown will be placed on top of your tooth and secured in place with a bonding material. Then you will work with your dentist to refine the tooth, to make it the way you like it. 

Teeth whitening

Sure, you can buy over-the-counter, at-home whitening treatments, but these are not comparable in any way to the teeth whitening services offered at 3rd South Dental, Salt Lake City, Utah. Whatever has caused the discoloring of your teeth, we can help you get them back to a beautiful shade of white so that you can be proud of your smile once again. 

We offer two different types of whitening treatments. First, there is intrinsic whitening. Intrinsic, as the name suggests, targets the tooth's interior pulp. This uses bleach or whitening gel to remove the stains and whiten the pulp. For intrinsic whitening, we will give you custom-made whitening trays that you can take home and apply with professional-strength whitening gel. Extrinsic treatments remove stains caused by tobacco, coffee, and red wine and include cleaning, polishing, and tooth whitening enamel.
