dental payment plans Queen Creek

Cosmetic dentistry is really coming into its own. Trend-watchers say that more and more people are choosing it every day to improve their smiles, with the procedures that are available at Harris Dental in Phoenix.

We all want to look our best. But cosmetic dentistry isn’t just about looking good; it is good for your dental health.

  1. Teeth whitening is used to lighten stained teeth. This quick and easy treatment is usually done in the office, and the results can be very dramatic.
  2. Bonding uses a dental composite that resembles enamel. This material is applied to the surface of the teeth, sculpted into the desired shape, and then hardened and polished.
  3. Tooth reshaping is a simple way to improve your teeth. It involves removing part of the enamel and can be used to fix small chips or to change the length or position of teeth.
  4. Veneers are custom-made porcelain coverings that are bonded to the teeth to close gaps or cover discolored teeth.
  5. Dental implants are titanium posts placed in the jaw to support one or more artificial teeth.
  6. Smile makeover. A smile makeover is a combination of procedures to get dental patients the smiles they want.

At Harris Dental in Phoenix we use cosmetic dentistry to improve smiles every day. We’ve  enhanced the smiles of people throughout Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa, who  also come to us for complete general dentistry. Call for an appointment today!

A great smile can light up a room, and if that smile is yours you are bound to make a great first impression. You can transform your smile with cosmetic dentistry from Harris Dental in Phoenix. Are you skeptical? We invite you to judge for yourself.

Few of us were born with perfect teeth. Cosmetic dentistry uses sound dental techniques to improve the appearance of your teeth. Even one procedure can make a big difference to your smile, and several will give you a complete makeover.

The available procedures include:

  • Teeth whitening. This may be the most popular one we’ve got. Yes, there are plenty of over-the-counter products for brightening smiles. None of them can compare to the results you’ll get from professional teeth whitening.
  • Porcelain veneers. Our teeth undergo a lot of wear and tear over the years. Porcelain veneers are custom-made shells of medical-grade ceramic that we attach to the front of your teeth to cover chips, gaps, and other imperfections.
  • Dental crowns. Crowns are used to repair teeth that have been damaged in accidents or eroded by decay. They give a tooth new strength and improved appearance.
  • Bonding. Dental bonding involves the application of a putty-like resin directly to the teeth. We can correct small chips, coat discolored teeth, and even fill in small cavities.

Cosmetic dentistry from Harris Dental in Phoenix can give you a whole new smile, but we’ll let you be the judge! Find out why people from Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa come to our practice to improve the appearance of their smiles, and for complete general dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today!

Do You Want To Change The Shape Of Your Gums?

Beautiful smile Cosmetic Dentistry

gum contouring ScottsdaleWhen you look in the mirror, do you like the smile you see? The flaws and strengths of your smile may be subjective, but if there are things about yours you don’t like, such as a gummy smile, we can fix it with cosmetic dentistry at Harris Dental in Phoenix.

The shape and size of your gumline can make your teeth appear too large or too small, or otherwise out of proportion. Gum contouring can correct gums that appear too low or too high in relation to the teeth, and customize them for the perfect smile.

Determining just what it is that makes a smile appear too gummy is more complicated than you might think. Your smile is the sum of its parts: the proportions of not only the gums themselves, but the teeth and upper jaw, and even the lips.

In most cases, bringing the proportion of visible gum into harmony with the teeth is enough to make a difference. When excessive gum tissue obscures some of the teeth, a technique called crown lengthening can correct it.

If you’re self-conscious about a gummy smile, cosmetic dentistry from Harris Dental in Phoenix can help. We’ve improved the smiles of patients throughout Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa, and also offer restorative dentistry services, and much more. Schedule an appointment today!

How Your Lifestyle Affects Your Tooth Color

It’s common for people to want white teeth. But the majority of men and women have discolored or just plain yellow teeth. Especially in a world of tea and coffee drinkers. Teeth whitening from Harris Dental in Phoenix can brighten your smile.

Your Genes Make a Difference

As with other physical aspects, there is a genetic component to your oral health. You can thank your parents if your enamel is thick and durable. If it is resistant to decay, you can thank them again. Even more importantly, you can thank them if they taught you to take care of your teeth.

Like complexions, natural tooth shade varies from person to person. Some of us have whiter teeth naturally. But many people have tarnished teeth due to their lifestyle. Dietary practices and dental hygiene influence tooth color as well as overall oral health.

Lifestyle Habits That Affect Tooth Color

Did you know that your enamel is like your skin? It contains pores that can get clogged and discolored. The most common practices that work against you are:

  1. Tobacco and other smokable substances
  2. Sodas and other dark colored drinks, i.e. coffee, red wines, and teas
  3. Not practicing daily oral hygiene
  4. Not having proper dental care

If you want whiter teeth, these will work against you. We suggest kicking these habits to the curb.

But to get the whitest possible teeth, nothing beats professional teeth whitening from Harris Dental in Phoenix. Patients from Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa have brightened their smiles with whitening and other cosmetic dentistry. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!
