Cosmetic Dentistry

It is impossible to overestimate the emotional, social, and even professional benefits that a confident smile can provide. 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, there is so much that can be done to improve the look of a person’s smile, at any age. There are numerous exciting options available, ranging from powerful, 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 your health has been confirmed, you can improve the appearance of your smile in a variety of ways.

What cosmetic dentistry procedures are available?


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 the permanent crown is being made, a temporary one will be used to protect the tooth. The second visit will be the fitting, adjusting, and cementing of the permanent crown

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 to 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 interior pulp of the tooth. This uses bleach or whitening gel to remove the stains and whiten the pulp. Extrinsic treatments focus on removing stains caused by things like tobacco, coffee, and red wine and include things like cleaning, polishing, and tooth whitening enamel.
