A Great Achievement in Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry Dental Implants

Dental implants are one of the greatest advances in the field of dentistry. They are an artificial tooth root that is surgically implanted into the jaw of a patient, to replace a missing root. The implant, in turn, can support an artificial tooth. Dental implants are available from Harris Dental in Phoenix.

Sometimes we have to take a moment and marvel at human ingenuity. The idea of a dental implant actually goes back at least a thousand years. But implants as we know them today date back to the early 1950s. One of their great benefits is that they help to prevent bone loss, which is common in people who have lost one of their natural teeth.

In practical terms, the great thing about implants is that they function like a natural tooth. Implant are typically made of titanium, and they fuse to the patient’s jaw. They integrate so well with the bone that the body does not recognize them as a foreign object, and try to reject them.

Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, or they can be used as anchors for dentures. Dentures may be more affordable, but because they are removable, most patients find that they can be unreliably loose. They can also affect the ability to enjoy food. These are not issues with implant-supported dentures.

Dental implants are one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures available at Harris Dental in Phoenix. 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.

How Bright Can You Shine?

Cosmetic Dentistry Teeth Whitening

Affordable Phoenix Cosmetic Dentistry

Most people notice their teeth dull as the years go by. But foods, drinks, and even mouthwashes can stain teeth at any age. You can do something about it with professional teeth whitening from Harris Dental in Phoenix.

Over the counter whitening products like toothpastes and strips may whiten teeth a little bit, but none of them can match professional strength whitening.

If you have dental veneers, bonding, or bridges, teeth whitening will not affect the stains and your whitened natural teeth may make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Harris Dental, we can advise you about new dental work, including veneers or bondings, if these have discolored with age.

Brushing after meals can keep stains at bay. But immediately after consuming acidic foods or drinks, just rinse your mouth with water. Brushing before the acids are neutralized or washed away can damage enamel.

In-office teeth whitening takes about an hour and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. Professional take-home whitening kits are also available at Harris Dental and can produce wonderful results over time.

Teeth whitening is one of the cosmetic dentistry services offered at Harris Dental in Phoenix. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Schedule Your Coronation

Cosmetic Dentistry Dental Crowns Dental health

dentist crowns Phoenix

We treat all of our patients royally here at Harris Dental, but some of them receive actual crowns. We’re not talking about crowns a king or queen wears, but crowns for your teeth!

A dental crown is like a cap that we place over a damaged tooth, in order to restore its size, shape, and strength. They also restore its appearance. Crowns are used for a myriad of problems:

  • To safeguard a weak tooth from decay, breaking, or to hold together a cracked tooth.
  • To cover and provide strength to a tooth with a large filling and little tooth structure remaining.
  • To restore a broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down.
  • To improve a tooth that is too small or misshapen.
  • To cover a tooth with severe discoloration.
  • To add strength to a tooth following a root canal procedure.

Once a dental crown is cemented into place, it completely covers the visible portion of the tooth, at and above the gum line. There are several different types of crowns available: stainless steel, porcelain and metal, all resin, or all ceramic.

At Harris Dental in Phoenix, same-day crowns are just one of our cosmetic dentistry options. Schedule an appointment today.
