Get Them Straight! Perfect Smiles in Phoenix

Mesa cosmetic dental and adult braces

Are you an adult with misaligned teeth? Do you regret not having orthodontic treatment when you were a teen? At Harris Dental in Phoenix, it’s not too late to get that perfect smile – and clear braces make it easy.

If you don’t want the whole world to know you are wearing braces, then Invisalign braces may be for you. Sometimes called invisible braces, they look like an athlete’s mouthguard. They are clear, but not invisible, yet they’re very inconspicuous. Someone standing just a few feet away might never realize you’re wearing them.

Invisalign braces have been on the market since 2000. They are fitted to your teeth and worn over them, so they gently move them into an ideal bite.

One of the most appealing things about them for many Phoenix-area patients is that they’re removable. Take them out at mealtime and at bedtime. Take them out when you brush, too: unlike conventional braces, there is nothing to prohibit you from thorough brushing, just like (we hope) you’ve always done.

This brings us to what may be the most critical thing to remember: the success of Invisalign clear braces depends on you. Since they’re removable, it’s up to you to wear them faithfully during the day. If you don’t, they won’t do what they’re supposed to do. And straightening your teeth is the whole point.

If you want more beautiful teeth, come into Harris Dental in Phoenix and discuss your goals with Dr. Harris, DDS. Dr. Harris will examine your teeth and recommend the most effective system for you.

Harris Dental in Phoenix is a full-service general dentistry practice. We provide cosmetic dentistry such as teeth whitening. For that perfect smile, call one of our four locations to make an appointment.

Everything You Never Wanted To Know About Saliva

Cosmetic Dentistry

Phoenix dry mouth relief

Hello, my name is Dr. Harris, and I want to welcome you to my Phoenix dental blog. My dental practice, Harris Dental, wants to help our Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa patients to be knowledgeable about oral health issues.

Today we are going to discuss the complexity and importance of your saliva. This typically yucky substance is, in reality, a finely balance body fluid that not only maintains dental health but also aids in digestion of your food. So, without further adieu, here are the main components of saliva.

1. Water. No surprise here! You saliva consists mostly of water.

2. Enzymes. Enzymes are important biological catalysts that speed chemical reactions. The enzymes in saliva begin the process of digestion.

3. Immunoproteins. These are powerful cells that fight cellular invaders, such as bacteria. Those in saliva inhibit the overgrowth of microbes in the mouth. This is essential to avoiding gingivitis and keeping a healthy pH balance in the mouth.

4. Minerals. Saliva minerals assist in maintaining the protective enamel surface of the teeth.

Most dental patients produce enough saliva, but some suffer from dry mouth, which is a lack of saliva. This can be harmful to your dental health, so be sure to talk to your dentist if you are experiencing this.

If you are in the Queen Creek, Scottsdale, or Mesa area and are in search of quality dental care, please call my office today at 480-428-0040 . Our patient-oriented staff would be happy to talk to you about our well-liked services, which include:

7 Ways Bonding Can Beautify

Cosmetic Dentistry

Phoenix Cosmetic Dentist

Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure, but we sometimes find that patients don’t know exactly what it is. Today in the Harris Dental dental blog, we’ll explain how we use dental bonding in cosmetic dentistry.

The dental bonding procedure uses a resin material that is sturdy and tooth-colored. It is applied to the teeth while soft, like putty, and then hardened or set with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.

Dentists will usually consider the option of bonding when 1) decayed, 2) chipped, or 3) cracked teeth need to be repaired.

4) Large spaces between teeth can be filled with bonding material, and 5) roots can be protected by bonding after gums recede.

6) Discolored teeth can also be improved using the bonding process. Because the material is easily shaped, teeth can be made to 7) look longer or reshaped entirely. Bonding is often used, along with teeth whitening as part of a total smile makeover.

Hi. I’m Dr. Harris.  My practice, Harris Dental, offers the following services:

dental implants
Invisalign clear braces
sedation dentistry
cosmetic dentistry

And more! So, if you are in the Queen Creek, Scottsdale, or Mesa area and are in need of dental care or have cosmetic dentistry questions, please give us a call at 480-428-0040 .

We hope to hear from you soon!

Spotlight-Ready Smiles From Harris Dental In Phoenix, Arizona

Cosmetic Dentistry

what are dental implants

A mouth full of unattractive teeth can really distract from a beautiful person’s appearance. Having a red-carpet-worthy smile can bring you increased satisfaction and confidence in your social interactions with your distinguished A-list friends.

This smile, however, doesn’t have to have a celebrity price tag. Affordable cosmetic dentistry and VIP treatment has been available since 1979 at Harris Dental. Come see what our expertise and experience can offer. When you ask about the cost of veneers, don’t forget to ask about the cost of dental implants as well.

What are dental veneers? Veneers are paper-thin shells of durable material (ceramic, porcelain, or composite resin) bonded to the teeth to provide strength and add beauty to any smile.

What are dental implants? A wonderful long-term solution for missing teeth, dental implants are artificial roots surgically implanted in the jaw to anchor a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, or denture.

The best way to find out if veneers or dental implants are a possibility is to meet with Dr. Harris DDS at Harris Dental for a smile makeover consultation.
