The journey to better health and a confidence-boosting smile starts here at Canyon Crossing Dental!

At Canyon Crossing Dental, we understand that you and your family have many options for dentists to choose from in St. George, Utah, area. Our one-of-a-kind team is led by Dr. Susan Baker, an experienced and skilled dentist of more than 30 years. Dr. Baker blends a personal touch with investments of time, talent, and treasure in the latest dental techniques and technologies. You can “have it all” at our practice – enjoy that timeless, unhurried, one-on-one service and cutting-edge advancements in preventative, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry.

We are happy to provide a glimpse into just a few of the services that make us stand out from other providers in the St. George metro and greater southwestern Utah:

  • Comprehensive implant dentistryOther dentists in our region may market dental implants. However, these dentists are limited in their capabilities. They can only restore the visible part of the tooth (the crown) that connects to the implant. They cannot precisely place the implant in the jawbone. Dr. Baker has the training and tools to safely and exactingly position the implant (or “artificial tooth root”) in the jaw. In turn, we can handle every aspect of the implant process from this office! This feature cuts down on the stress, time, hassle, and cost of replacing your teeth with implants.
  • Cosmetic dentistry to bring out your smile’s natural best Dr. Baker offers a wide array of options to enhance the appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile. These options range from professional teeth whitening that gets results safely and comfortably to porcelain veneers. In fact, veneers are the “secret” to some of the world’s most admired smiles. These thin layers of dental ceramic are placed on top of prepared tooth surfaces to cover up everything from chips and small cracks to worn-down teeth and gaps between teeth. Due to Dr. Baker’s artistry and technical aptitude, her veneers never stick out too prominently, nor do they look plastic or “fake.” They look like your natural teeth – only better!
  • Full-service restorative care that you can trustWhile every effort is made to preserve the health and beauty of your teeth, gums, and oral tissues, patients can also benefit from our wide-ranging restorative treatments. These options include tooth preservation methods such as dental fillings and full crowns and tooth replacement with conventional bridges, precision-fit dentures, and crowns, bridges, and dentures supported by dental implants. Other options to restore oral health include deep cleaning alternatives to standard professional cleanings (“prophy”) and periodontal therapies to resolve existing gum disease.
  • Periodontal (Gum) Treatment and Prevention – laser gum treatment to heal infected gum tissue, remove bacteria, and actually grow bone back around your teeth.

Regardless of your age and needs, at Canyon Crossing Dental in St. George, UT, we are here for you and your family with quality care that protects, restores, and sustains the mouth’s health. When your mouth is healthy, the “rest of you” shines! Call (435) 344-4445 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Baker today.
