Phoenix Teeth Bleaching

Maybe you’ve always wanted a dazzling, movie star smile. Or maybe your teeth have just grown dull with the passage of time. Whatever motivates you, you’re one of millions who want to brighten their smiles with teeth whitening, like the professional whitening at Harris Dental in Phoenix.

The effectiveness of teeth whitening depends partly on the types of stains.

Extrinsic tooth stains are the best to remove. These surface stains have not yet penetrated through the enamel into the dentin. Extrinsic stains are caused by dark-colored foods and beverages like blueberries, carrots, coffee, red wine, and cola. And nicotine is no better for your smile than it is for your lungs.

Intrinsic tooth stains develop from the inside out. Tooth injury or tetracycline are the usual culprits. Intrinsic stains are harder to remove, but it is possible to lighten them.

You can take years off your appearance with professional teeth whitening from Harris Dental in Phoenix. It’s among our most popualr cosmetic dentistry procedures. Call us to schedule an appointment today!

Bridging The Gap

Beautiful smile Restorative Dentistry

cosmetic dental Phoenix

Do you have a missing tooth that is detracting from your otherwise pleasing smile? Let Harris Dental in Phoenix fill the gap for you with a dental bridge, to help you get your smile back!

A traditional bridge consists of one or more fake teeth (called pontics) that are held in place by dental crowns. Known as abutments, the crowns are cemented to the the teeth on either side of the gap created by the missing tooth or teeth.

The teeth on either side of the gap must be prepared before they can support the bridge. This is accomplished by removing the enamel so there is enough room for the crowns to be cemented into place. These teeth will always need to be covered with a crown moving forward, even if you change the bridge later on.

At Harris Dental in Phoenix, dental bridges are one of our restorative dentistry services. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Beautifying With Bonding

Beautiful smile Cosmetic Dentistry

Phoenix fix chipped tooth

A dentist’s toolkit is filled with handy instruments for fixing most types of dental issues. Cosmetic dentistry at Harris Dental in Phoenix is especially effective for improving the appearance of your smile.

In the past few years, procedures like teeth whitening, dental implants, and porcelain veneers have had a lot of attention. In this post, we are going to talk about an effective but rather ignored treatment that has been used successfully for decades. We’re talking about dental bonding.

Dentists use bonding to repair tooth issues caused by decay, chips, or cracks. Large spaces between healthy teeth can be filled with bonding material, and bonding can guard tooth roots if the gums have regressed.

Bonding involves a resin material that is durable and natural looking. It is applied to the teeth while soft and putty-like, and then hardened (or cured) with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.

Discolored teeth can be lightened with bonding. Since bonding material is easily molded, teeth can be lengthened or re-shaped to more pleasing proportions. Bonding is usually used as part of a total smile makeover.

Bonding is just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures offered at Harris Dental in Phoenix. Other services include general dentistry. Schedule your next cleaning and checkup with us today.

Whitening vs Bleaching At Harris Dental

Whitening vs Bleaching At Harris Dental In Phoenix

Everyone would like a beautiful smile with brillian white teeth. That explains why teeth whitening is such a popular cosmetic dental service at Harris Dental in Phoenix.

You hear the terms teeth whitening and teeth bleaching used almost interchangeably, but they mean two different things. Teeth whitener can refer to any product used to remove stains from tooth enamel: toothpaste, DIY strips, and some mouthwashes are safe and affordable and can illuminate teeth with continued, regular use. The extent of whitening varies, and it takes dedicated, scheduled use to see results.

Whitening products that do not contain bleach can usually make teeth two to four shades lighter. These are a good choice for people with sensitive teeth and gums that can react to products containing harsher whitening chemicals. Harris Dental guides pregnant or nursing mothers to choose the non-bleach whitening products.

The term “bleaching” is used to describe a tooth whitening product that contains a form of bleach, either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, in varying concentrations. For best results, teeth bleaching should be done in-office. Bleaching generally gets more noticeable results, sometimes up to seven shades lighter. Intrinsic stains on the dentin, as well as surface stains can be effectively lightened under an experienced dentist’s supervision.

At Harris Dental in Phoenix, we offer at-home and in-office teeth whitening, and other cosmetic dentistry services. Call our patient-oriented team to schedule a consultation!
