Cosmetic dentistry refers to a range of procedures that use proven dental techniques to improve the appearance of a patient’s smile. Whether it is relatively minor or more involved, it can give you the beautiful teeth you have always wanted.

Available procedures include:

Any one of these procedures will have an immediate, noticeable affect on your smile. Put them together and you’ll have a stunning new smile!

Use Five Fingers For Quick And Healthy Flossing

Dental health General Dentistry

porcelain veneers cost Phoenix

This message is for smart kids who want to make flossing a habit. Here are 5 flossing steps made so easy you can tick them off one finger at a time thanks to Harris Dental in Phoenix.

Thumbkin: Thumb to Chest Reminder
Thumb to chest can remind me that this isn’t for my friends. Brushing the goobers off so I don’t gross them out. Rinsing with a fluoride rinse for fresh breath as I speak. That is for friends. Flossing is for me, myself and I. I want Your overall oral health depends not only on healthy teeth but also healthy gums, therefore I floss.

Pointer: Pointer Fingers Measure
How much floss will I need to floss my 32 teeth? The American Dental Association advises that you begin with about 18 inches. Roughly 6 lengths of your pointer finger should be adequate.

Tall Man: Wrap the Middle Fingers
This is a team endeavor. With the middle fingers wound up in the floss, the thumb and forefinger can grip and guide the floss into place. After curving the floss around the tooth into a “C” shape, and the up and down motions have wiped away plaque, then “unspool” for a new section for the next tooth in line.

Ring Man: The Smell Test
Many a long term relationship has been cut short due to not-so-fresh breath. Smell floss before going between teeth. Smell it after. Bad smell? Brushing is not cleaning away that bacteria well enough. Hurray for floss! This smell test says the brushing needs to be improved. Be gentle with your gums. Keep those areas at the base of your teeth bacteria free.

Pinky: Time to Promise
Make the pledge now. Every time you look at your pinky, remember that you pinky promised to keep those gums free from disease. Flossing isn’t so much about removing food as it is about removing dental plaque. Plaque creates tooth decay and inflamed gums. Periodontal disease can eventually bring about tooth loss. Tooth neglect is a slippery slope.

At Harris Dental in Phoenix we offer complete general dentistry. People from Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa also come to our practice for restorative dentistry. Call to schedule a checkup with us today!

Can Replacing a Missing Tooth Improve My Life?

Dental health Dental Implants Restorative Dentistry

how do I replace a missing tooth? Phoenix

If you have one or more missing teeth, you are probably self-conscious about it. A smile is one of the first things people notice. At Harris Dental in Phoenix we use dental implants to restore smiles.

The Teeth Surrounding The Missing Tooth

When a gap is left by a missing tooth, the surrounding teeth tend to shift. This can cause the other teeth to become crooked, and new gaps may appear. Teeth that are displaced are more vulnerable to gum disease, tooth decay, and TMJ pain.

Difficulty Biting and Chewing

Missing teeth also affect the way you bite a chew. Teeth should work together as a unit. Properly aligned teeth come together harmoniously when you bite and chew. When a tooth is missing more stress is placed on the others.

Speech Problems

Missing teeth, especially front teeth, can affect the way you speak. It may become hard to pronounce certain words. You may even develop a lisp. These speech problems may cause you to abstain from social situations.

What is the best solution for missing teeth?

A dental implant is a permanent anchor (post) that is inserted into the jawbone at the site of an extracted tooth. In the months after implantation, it integrates with the jawbone. One or more implants can provide a sturdy base for a crown, bridge, or denture.

A dental implant from Harris Dental in Phoenix can restore your smile and improve your life. We’ve placed them in people throughout Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa. We also offer complete general dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!

What Are CEREC Same Day Dental Crowns?

Dental Crowns Restorative Dentistry

same day dental crowns Phoenix

CEREC is a type of dental crown that eliminates what has always been a lengthy turnaround time, and they are available at Harris Dental in Phoenix.

CEREC stand for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. We use CEREC technology to create and place a crown in one day.

How Are CEREC Crowns Made?

CEREC same day dental crowns use Computer Aided Design/ Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology and 3D imaging to create a crown that fits your tooth perfectly. A CEREC crown maintains your natural bite and gumline contours.

After taking a 3D image of your tooth with an intraoral scanner, the image is converted to a digital model with the CEREC CAD/CAM software. The digital model is delivered to the milling machine.

The crown is milled from a ceramic block, and after matching its color to your teeth, is bonded to the damaged tooth.

What Are The Benefits of CEREC Dental Crowns?

  • Restores tooth function in one dental appointment
  • Only requires one dental visit
  • Prevents potential problems with temporary crowns
  • Retains more of your existing tooth structure
  • CEREC may be more affordable than a traditional crown
  • Fit better than standard crowns

CEREC dental crowns from Harris Dental are state-of-the-art. People from Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa come to our office for them, and for other restorative dentistry. Call for an appointment with us today!

You Have Nothing To Lose Except Loose Dentures

Dental Implants Dentures Restorative Dentistry

Dental implants like those available at Harris Dental in Phoenix have solved the problem of loose-fitting dentures.

Instead of relying on dental adhesive to keep ordinary dentures in place, dental implants can anchor full or partial dentures. They are secure enough to allow the wearer to eat an apple, chew a thick sandwich, or share a hearty laugh with certainty.

Implants can anchor either removable or fixed dentures. They fit better than traditional dentures, and are comfortable, functional, and pleasing.

Dental implants can also help prevent bone recession that often occurs after teeth have been extracted.

At Harris Dental we have restored countless smiles with dental implants. Patients throughout Queen Creek, Scottsdale, Mesa, and greater Phoenix have come to us for implants and other restorative dentistry. Call for an appointment with us today!
