By masterfully recontouring your mouth, a wonderful smile can emerge. We can quickly reshape and reposition teeth to correct crooked, chipped, cracked and overlapping teeth.

Today, a revolutionary alternative to dentures is a dental implant. To fill the gap from a missing tooth, we sink a permanent anchor down into the gum and then securely place a beautiful replica (a crown) of the original tooth on top.

One of the most comforting options we offer is sedation dentistry to induce a deeply relaxed state for patients who are going through major cosmetic or restorative dental procedures. Dental sedation can be used for any type of dental work, including cleanings. It’s comforting to know you can relax at the dentist.

Placing porcelain veneers on discolored, chipped or uneven teeth is a great way to create a natural beautiful smile. You can count on the fact that dental veneer laminates are typically long lasting, ultra thin and custom designed to perfectly fit your teeth.

One of the most aesthetic ways to rebuild existing teeth that are either decayed, damaged or missing is with porcelain crowns. They look great and can restore a tooth to its original strength and functionality. We’re masters at the dental crown process.

Invisalign is an outstanding way to receive orthodontic treatment without having to wear traditional metal braces. The aligners we use are invisible, removable, comfortable and highly effective for straightening teeth.

Despite the fact that you may, like most people, have had some tooth decay, it doesn’t have to look like it when you open your mouth. One of the most basic and aesthetic procedures we perform in our office is to fill cavities with long-lasting tooth-colored materials in lieu of metal. Natural-colored fillings and restorations are inexpensive and are a wonderful option for our patients.

Professional Teeth Whitening
While over-the-counter remedies are now available, dentist-supervised teeth whitening treatments are still the AACD recommended procedure for whitening discolored teeth. We create custom dental trays and dispense highly effective bleaching gels that may be used at home.

We use a technique called “digital radiography,” which uses an electronic sensor (instead of X-ray film) to capture an electronic dental image that can be viewed almost immediately on a computer screen. And the best part of it is that less radiation (about 90% less) is needed to produce an image with digital radiography than with standard dental X-rays. It’s definitely a better health option.
Bonding is a quick and painless process that can restore the beauty of your smile through the application of a thin resin over stained, chipped and cracked teeth. The resin used in this process not only enhances a smile, but also strengthens teeth.
Missing teeth used to be a lifelong problem. Now that natural-looking porcelain bridges are an option, we can fill gaps with permanent, beautiful replacement teeth.
With the use of a miniature camera that is capable of capturing color images inside your mouth, you will see exactly what is being done in your mouth during an office visit on an overhead monitor. Finally, by being able to view the problems in your mouth, you can be more aware and involved in your treatment plan.
With the use of laser technology, we can provide much more efficient and effective dental care. Salt Lake City, Utah dentist Dr. Allan Thomas uses laser dentistry to keep you less time in the chair and eliminate the piercing whine of a drill. In fact, with laser dentistry we guarantee that your visits to our office will be far more pleasant. Laser dentistry allows us to provide better hygiene care, whitening of your teeth, gum treatments, decay removal and the application of sealants.
Our hygienists use an ultrasonic scaling device that emits a very controlled, high-pressure stream of water to remove plaque from your teeth. Faster and far more comfortable than traditional methods of cleaning teeth, you’ll be sold the first time you visit one of our hygienists.
Sometimes teeth don’t age to perfection, and the nerve pulp within them becomes inflamed or infected. The usual plan of action to rescue a tooth in distress and a patient in pain is performing a root canal. We are expertly trained in this procedure of removing the infected pulp from within the tooth and restoring the tooth afterward with a porcelain crown.
Dr. Allan Thomas of Salt Lake City, Utah, enjoys helping patients receive the dental care they need. By using the latest technology, such as laser dentistry and digital X-rays, he can improve your comfort and health. And his advanced education, training and experience in cosmetic and sedation dentistry can be applied to give you a beautiful smile while you relax in comfort.
