The Ultimate Anti-Aging Treatment

Cosmetic Dentistry General Dentistry Teeth Whitening

Phoenix Pediatric DentistryWishing for a whiter smile but not sure how to get it? New to tooth whitening jargon? At Harris Dental in Phoenix, we educate patients on the variety of teeth whitening procedures, from whitening trays to over-the-counter products. We do smile lightening every day.

Toothpaste Can’t Erase All Stains

Almost every toothpaste claims to brighten teeth, but as we age our teeth gradually turn yellow or gray, despite all the whitening toothpastes we use repeatedly. Tooth enamel, while one of the toughest substances in the body, is porous. Over time, the food and drinks that come in contact with our teeth bring about staining and discoloration. You probably have already noticed that a toothbrush cannot clean these microscopic pores.

Powerful Peroxide

Carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide are the two main smile whitening substances. They can penetrate the outer layer of your teeth to remove the build-up and help restore the initial color.

Call Harris Dental in Phoenix to schedule a teeth whitening appointment, and we will explain the difference between these tooth bleaching ingredients and how they may impact your smile whitening results. We also offer general dentistry. Make an appointment today.

4 Oral Ailments To Discuss With Your Dentist

Cosmetic Dentistry Dental health General Dentistry Oral Health

Bad Breath Treatment Phoenix

We all go to the dentist for cleanings and toothaches, but there are other less-obvious issues that your dentist can help you with. At Harris Dental in Phoenix, we would like to review some of the most frequent oral conditions that should be discussed with your dentist.

1. Bad Breath. Sure, nobody wants to admit that they have bad breath, but bad breath can be treated. It is usually associated with bacteria build-up in the mouth. This means that it might be a symptom of accelerating dental caries. Discuss it with your dentist who can help you overcome this malady. (Your friends will appreciate it.)

2. Dry Mouth. Also known as xerostomia, this lack of saliva is very bothersome and can predispose dental patients to a host of problems such as dental caries and gum disease. Some men and women experience it because of prescription medications or chronic diseases, so make sure to bring a list of current prescriptions with you to your appointment

3. Jaw Issues. If you experience frequent jaw pain or notice a clicking sound, be sure to schedule an appointment with your dentist promptly! These symptoms can be signs of a serious condition called temporomandibular disorder or TMD.

4. Teeth Grinding. If you’ve been stressed out and find that you’ve been grinding your teeth (or if your partner tells you that you’re doing it in your sleep), discuss it with your dentist. A simple appliance can protect your teeth. If you have sufferred damage from grinding such as fractured or chipped teeth, we will give you information about restorative dentistry.

With four offices to serve you, Harris Dental in Phoenix provides general and cosmetic dentistry. Make an appointment with us today.

The Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry Dental health General Dentistry Laser dentistry

At Harris Dental You

In this Harris Dental blog post we discuss laser dentistry. It may sound scary, or it might make you think of science fiction. But laser dentistry provides an alternative to drills. Many services done with lasers don’t require patients to be medicated, allowing for quicker healing times.

Less Stress

Many patients become distressed while waiting for a shot of painkiller before a dental procedure. Laser dentistry allows for a more relaxed, less stressful dental visit. My patients also welcome going home without a numb mouth or drool dripping down their chin.

People in need of oral surgery will experience less bleeding thanks to laser dentistry. Some of the procedures that are executed with lasers are: infected root canal treatment, gum and bone reshaping, wisdom teeth extraction, and teeth whitening.

Many procedures at Harris Dental in Phoenix are done with laser dentistry. Our services include general dentistry. Schedule your next appointment today.

Lighten Up In Phoenix

Cosmetic Dentistry Dental health General Dentistry Teeth Whitening

Lighten Up In Phoenix

Hello! This article is for people with stained teeth. Do you think your teeth are too stained for teeth whitening to have any effect? Think again. At Harris Dental in Phoenix, we are whitening smiles for patients with both intrinsic and extrinsic stains.

What’s the difference? you may ask. Fair question. Extrinsic stains are caused by dark colored foods and drinks, smoking, and normal aging. Harris Dental cosmetic dentistry patients with extrinsic stains achieve great results from both in-office and take-home teeth whitening systems.

Intrinsic stains form on the inside but can be seen from the outside. Tetracycline, excessive fluoride, trauma, and aging can cause intrinsic staining for unfortunate Phoenix dentistry patients. Though these stains are harder to remove, many patients with intrinsic staining can whiten their teeth with take-home whitening kits. The process often takes longer, but with persistence, intrinsic stains can be lightened.

In addition to teeth whitening, Harris Dental provides a full menu of cosmetic dentistry procedures. Call us to schedule a consultation.
