Laser Dentistry

waterlaseLaser dentistry allows for fillings without injections! This latest technology is available at Utah Smile Clinic. Laser dentistry is only offered by a very small percentage of dentists nationwide, and is a highly sought-after technique for those seeking extreme safety and comfort at the dentist.

Procedures performed using soft tissue dental lasers may not require sutures (stitches) and may not require anesthesia. Laser dentistry also minimizes bleeding because the high-energy light beam aids in the clotting (coagulation) of exposed blood vessels, thus inhibiting blood loss. Bacterial infections are minimized because the high-energy beam sterilizes the area being worked on. Damage to surrounding tissue is minimized. Wounds heal faster and tissues can be regenerated quicker using laser dental.

 

CEREC Same-day Crowns

cerec-same-day-crownUsually a crown takes two visits: on the first visit the tooth is prepared, and impression is taken of your teeth, and this impression is sent to a laboratory where your crown will be made. Meanwhile, you wear a temporary crown. On your secondary appointment, the temporary crown is removed and the durable crown is placed on your tooth.

At Utah Smile Clinic the same day pure ceramic crown is made by a computer while you wait. You won’t need to schedule a second appointment with our office and miss other important appointments in your life. Same day crown technology also eliminates the need for an uncomfortable temporary crown. Your mouth is mapped out digitally, preventing the need for impressions using “goop”, reducing inaccuracy and increasing comfort. The ceramic material that is used to mill your new crown has the same characteristics as tooth enamel.

Overall, CEREC same-day crown technology will save you a considerable amount of time and discomfort. These crowns have no metal in them, and thus are very esthetic. Our patients have been very pleased with how amazing their teeth look and comfortable they feel eating after a placement of our same day crown.

 

Utah Smile Clinic Brand Clear Aligners

clear-alignersAt Utah Smile Clinic we are very sensitive to the price concerns of our patients. We offer services for clear aligners such as Invisalign and Clear Correct when requested. Our Utah Smile Clinic brand clear aligners gives us the most affordable option for clear aligners in the Salt Lake City area. We’ve successfully straightened the teeth of thousands of patients and have an amazing track record.

Clear aligners give the patient the benefit of straightening teeth like braces, without the discomfort of wearing braces and are not visible without close inspection. Braces can cut your lips and gums and can make some people feel self-conscious. We recommend clear aligners for responsible individuals as they need to be removed and cleaned and also left out, which will delay treatment completion.
