We provide a full suite of dental procedures in Salt Lake City from regular cleanings and check-ups, to fillings, crowns, implants, root canals, cosmetic dentistry, and more. Natural Smiles Dentistry can and will help you with any and all issues with your teeth, gums, and mouth.

When someone is poking around your mouth, you want to be sure that you are getting the best compassionate care and comfort that can be provided. Natural Smiles Dentistry houses an environment where patients feel right at home, and in the hands of professional dentists who care. Dr. Thomas Brickey and Dr. Laura Provine provide quality care services in not just teeth whitening and daily care, but also in the care of your teeth as they age. Dental implants are your chance to feel confident and secure again, all while keeping your smile natural and bright!

Oral Hygiene

It may sound cliché, but oral hygiene – brushing, flossing, and regular professional cleanings – really is the most important factor when it comes to oral health. If you don’t pay your dues with proper oral hygiene on a daily basis, you will pay much more costly and painful dues down the road. You should brush your teeth at least twice a day, ideally after eating or drinking, and floss every night before bed. You should also maintain your twice yearly cleanings with our excellent hygiene team. Our hygiene team is very gentle so you won’t leave your cleaning with sore gums, and impressively thorough to take care of any plaque or tartar you’ve left behind.

Oral Cancer Screenings

One of our most important jobs as your oral healthcare providers is to screen our patients for oral cancer. Oral cancer is unfortunately on the rise, but the good news is it does not have to be fatal if it is caught in the early stages. Did you know that 25% of oral cancer patients have no risk factors?

While it is extra important for patients with risk factors (male, age 60+, smokers, drinkers, HPV) to be on the lookout, it is important for everyone to pay attention to what’s going on in their mouth and in their body. If you notice any abnormalities or changes in your mouth, you should come see us for an oral cancer screening right away. It might just save your life.

Mouth Guards

If you or your little one is involved in any type of contact sports, we highly suggest a custom mouth guard from Natural Smiles Dentistry. Custom mouth guards offer a higher level of protection against oral injuries and concussions than stock guards do. Plus they’re more comfortable and fit better so patients are more likely to actually wear their mouth guard.

If you tend to clench and grind your teeth, or suffer from TMJ, a custom mouth guard can help minimize damage to your teeth, and help prevent the head, neck and jaw pain associated with bruxism. Your smile is one of your greatest assets. Give it the best protection with a custom mouth guard from Natural Smiles Dentistry.
