Do You Love Your Smile?

Beautiful smile Cosmetic Dentistry

Phoenix Cosmetic Dentistry

The people who are happiest with their smiles have healthy, straight teeth that sparkle when they laugh. If nature didn’t bless you with attractive teeth, you are not alone. Most perfect smiles you see were not always that way: they are the result of cosmetic dentistry, like what we provide at Harris Dental in Phoenix.

Two common smile issues are yellow enamel and chipped teeth.

Discolored Teeth
Few of us are blessed with pearly white smiles that stay that way forever. Even with consistent brushing, flossing and dental cleanings,  teeth darken as we age.

That explains the popularity of teeth whitening. Can you picture yourself with a celebrity-caliber smile? Teeth whitening makes it possible!

Damaged Teeth
Our teeth work hard for us day after day, year after year. Sometimes they get chipped or cracked in the process. If you would like to fix your tooth flaws, porcelain veneers and cosmetic bonding have been used with great results for many years.

At Harris Dental in Phoenix we improve smiles with cosmetic dentistry every day. People from Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa also come to our practice for restorative dentistry. Schedule your next checkup today!

The Harris Dental Guide To Veneers

Beautiful smile Cosmetic Dentistry Perfect smiles Porcelain Veneers

porcelain veneers cost Phoenix

It’s easy to see why so many of our patients at Harris Dental in Phoenix love porcelain veneers. Veneers can be used to address many flaws, and deliver brilliant results.

A veneer is an ultra-thin shell of medical-grade porcelain that is permanently attached to the front of a tooth. Each one is custom made. Veneers cover chips, cracks, and stains, and can also improve the shape, size or length of a tooth.

It’s important to understand that porcelain veneers are not reversible. A thin layer of enamel must be removed to make room for the veneer. Thus, the tooth can never be restored to its original condition.

We offer two types: standard porcelain veneers, and prepless veneers. With standard veneers a thin layer of enamel is removed in order to accommodate the veneers. Prepless veneers do not require enamel removal.

To find out which type is best for you, please schedule an appointment with us at Harris Dental in Phoenix. We have improve smiles for people from Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa. Call us to to set up an appointment today!

Your Smile Says Keep Trying!

Beautiful smile Cosmetic Dentistry Dental health General Dentistry

gentle dentist Phoenix

This message from Harris Dental in Phoenix is for anyone who is finding it difficult to improve their dental health. We urge you to keep working at it and assure you that we’re here to help!

Keep Trying To Floss

Many people are good about brushing their teeth, but sometimes skip flossing. This is a bad idea. Flossing is the only way to clean food debris and plaque from between teeth.

Failure to floss can lead to cavities, and even gum disease. Our recommendation? Brush twice a day, and floss before going to bed at night.

Keep Trying to Quit Tobacco

Smoking is as bad for your teeth and gums as it is for other parts of your body. If you’ve tried to quit but just can’t, you’re far from alone.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, former smokers now outnumber active smokers. Everyone who has kicked the habit was once right where you are. Keep trying!

Keep Getting Checkups

Regular cleanings and checkups are a critical part of maintaining good dental health. Along with brushing and flossing, they are your first line of defense against tooth decay. On average, we recommend a checkup every six months. Some patients can spread them out a little more, and others may need more frequent visits.

Remember, the link between dental health and overall health is well-established. Patients come to Harris Dental in Phoenix from Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa for general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next checkup today!

Affordable Smile Makeovers In Phoenix

You may have heard that cosmetic dentistry can totally transform a smile. You may be a little skeptical, and at Harris Dental in Phoenix, we don’t blame you. The promise of total transformation, after all, sounds like a tall order!

But hear us out. Are total smile makeovers really possible? Absolutely!

If your smile has grown dull over the years, or has flaws like chips or unsightly gaps, there is a procedure to help. Even something like a missing tooth can be effectively addressed with modern dentistry.

Procedures include:

  • Teeth whitening. Professional teeth whitening is incredibly effective: superior to any product you can buy at the store. We offer in-office whitening and take-home kits, and both deliver amazing results.
  • Porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that are attached to the front of your teeth. Each one is custom-made for a specific tooth. They can cover chips, cracks, and gaps, as well as misaligned teeth.
  • Dental implants. One of the truly great advances of modern dentistry, dental implants are inserted into your jaw and support artificial teeth that look and function like natural teeth.

Combine these and other cosmetic dentistry procedures from Harris Dental in Phoenix, and you’ll have a total smile makeover. Visit our smile gallery to see results for yourself! People from Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa trust us with their smiles. Schedule an appointment today!

Cosmetic Dentistry vs. General Dentistry

Beautiful smile Cosmetic Dentistry Dental health General Dentistry

Phoenix Cosmetic Dentistry

This post from Harris Dental in Phoenix highlights the differences between general and cosmetic dentistry.

General dentistry is about preventing and treating oral diseases such as cavities and gum disease. When a problem is diagnosed, like a cavity, a general dentist determines the best way to address it.

Cosmetic dentistry is a term for elective dental procedures that make a smile more attractive. This includes things like teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.

Sometimes there is overlap, and sometimes the terminology gets a different spin from one practice to the next. For example, one dentist might call a dental implant cosmetic, while another will call it general or restorative. It’s the same procedure, of course, and used for the same reasons.

At Harris Dental in Phoenix, we are a full-service practice meeting the needs of all our patients. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry, of course. Patients from all over Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa count on our expert dental care, and love that our office is a lecture-free zone. Call our office to schedule your next cleaning and checkup today!
