At East Mountain Dental, we are proud to be a dentist in Provo, Utah. Our dentists, Dr. Hamilton and Dr. Roberts, offer a wide range of dental services to the people of Provo and surrounding areas. We offer a few different services, including cosmetic, restorative, and preventative dentistry.
Cosmetic Dentistry in Provo, Utah
Dr. Hamilton and Dr. Roberts are proud to provide cosmetic dentistry in Provo, Utah. We offer dental veneers, dental bonding, and teeth whitening for our patients. Whether you are looking to enlarge, straighten, or whiten your smile, we can help you.
Dental veneers are often referred to as shells that sit on the front of the tooth. Dental veneers can be made of porcelain or composite resin, also called a tooth-colored material. Since a dental veneer can be any shape or size, many patients use dental veneers to straighten, whiten, and enlarge their smiles.
As a dentist in Provo, Utah, we offer teeth whitening to our patients. Through Opalescence, we offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening solutions. Professional teeth whitening is more beneficial than over-the-counter solutions because professional teeth whitening uses a more robust whitening solution and a more precise application process. Your dentist will make you a custom tray for at-home whitening, which you will wear once per day for up to 10 days. You can achieve your dream smile in one or two 20 minute whitening appointments for in-office whitening.
Like dental fillings, dental bonding uses a composite resin or a tooth-colored material to mold the tooth. If you have a chipped or misshapen tooth, dental bonding can help smooth out and straighten the edges of your smile.
Another service we offer as a dentist in Provo is restorative dentistry. If you have a dental concern, Dr. Hamilton or Dr. Roberts can help you restore your smile with one of our many treatment options. From dental fillings to root canals to dental implants, we can help you convert your smile.
If you have tooth decay, your dentist may recommend a dental filling. To get a dental filling, your dentist will first remove the decay to create a cavity in your tooth. Next, he will fill the hole with a composite resin, also known as a tooth-colored filling. The goal of removing the decay and filling the cavity is to prevent future tooth decay from spreading and rid your tooth of harmful bacteria.
If bacteria and decay enter the tooth’s center, you may need a root canal. This procedure is similar to a dental filling, where your dentist will remove the infected part of the tooth and replace it with composite material. Many patients are worried about discomfort during a root canal procedure. Most patients report that the most pain they have is before the process from the infection because they receive sedation medication to make them comfortable during and after the procedure.
Some infected teeth are not salvageable. In this case, the best way to restore a smile may be to extract the tooth and replace it with a dental implant. Unlike a dental bridge, which only returns the top of the tooth, a dental implant replaces the entire tooth from its root to the crown.
One of the cornerstones of dentistry is preventative dentistry. As a dentist in Provo, we stress the importance of preventive dentistry because it can keep our patients from experiencing dental concerns. The first part of preventative dentistry is to practice good oral hygiene at home. We recommend that our patients brush, floss, and use mouthwash twice a day.
Next, we recommend that our patients visit East Mountain Dental every six months for a dental cleaning and exam. Our dentist can look for potential dental concerns during this visit, and the team can remove hard-to-get plaque and tartar from your smile. Other preventative dentistry services we offer include dental sealants and fluoride treatments.
As a dentist in Provo, we work hard to provide high-quality care for all of our patients in a comfortable environment. For more information about us, a dentist in Provo, or to schedule an appointment, call our office today.
