Root canals are sometimes necessary in order to keep a person's teeth as healthy as possible. If a person gets a really deep cavity or if a tooth becomes infected, a root canal is what will save the tooth and keep it from dying. A soft pulp fills the center of your tooth (called the nerve), and if this becomes diseased, a root canal is needed to safely remove the pulp and other bacteria and decayed nerve tissue. We will seal and then fill your tooth with a rubber compound and a sealer paste to replace your tooth's pulp. Hopefully, your teeth will stay healthy enough to never force you to get root canals in Salt Lake City, but if circumstances require you to have one, Blackstone Dental will make the process as quick, safe, and comfortable as possible.

Crowns are a common part of dental work that many people stand in need of at some point in their lifetime. A crown cups the portion of the tooth above the gum line, and they are needed to cover natural teeth in the case of cracked teeth, deep cavities, or poor enamel. Usually, people get crowns to strengthen weak teeth or to repair damaged teeth that may have been chipped or broken. If a cavity filling is particularly large or cuts down too close to the root of the tooth, crowns are used to cover the filling in order to protect it. Like veneers, crowns are sometimes also put on to cover bad stains or to improve the shape of certain teeth. Whatever the reason you need to get crowns in Salt Lake City, Blackstone Dental has the expertise to get the job done right and ensure that you are happy with the appearance of your crowns.
