Love Your Smile in Phoenix

There is nothing like bright white teeth that light up a person’s face when they smile and laugh. No one has to settle for dull, yellow teeth. With cosmetic dentistry from Harris Dental in Phoenix, anyone can have a fabulous smile.

If you have an important upcoming event such as a wedding, party or formal family portrait sitting, a smile makeover will give you extra confidence as you pose for photos (even close-ups).

A smile makeover is a process that draws on different cosmetic dentistry procedures to improve your smile. We can whiten your teeth, restore missing teeth, close gaps between them, and repair chips, cracks, and other damage. We have an array of tools and techniques that can improve any smile.

Let’s consider teeth whitening as just one example. Our teeth get dull and discolored as the years go by, stained by the things that we eat and drink. Tobacco, too, can take a toll on your teeth. We offer several whitening procedures to restore the brilliance of your smile.

You can learn a lot from someone’s smile, and at Harris Dental in Phoenix we help you make great impressions on others by putting your best smile forward. We offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry procedures, as well as restorative dentistry and much more. Call our office to schedule an appointment today.

You Know It When You See It

Beautiful smile Cosmetic Dentistry

top cosmetic dentist Phoenix

You may not be able to identify how the parts of a smile blend in perfect harmony, but you know it when you see it. At Harris Dental in Phoenix, beautiful smiles with cosmetic dentistry are our specialty.

You may be surprised at how many design elements we consider when planning for a smile makeover. Here are a few of the most obvious parts:

  • Tooth Color: shade, brightness, uniformity
  • Tooth alignment: straight or crooked?
  • Tooth size and proportions: are some teeth much larger or smaller than the rest?
  • Tooth spacing: is there crowding or big gaps between teeth?
  • Gumline margins: how much gum shows when you smile?

Here are some other cosiderations that may be less familiar to the layperson:

  • The portions of the teeth that are visible when the mouth is at rest
  • The relationship of the smile line and the lip line
  • Zenith points: the highest point of the gumline in relation to the center of the tooth
  • Midline placement: the smile should be centered in the middle of the lips, mouth, and face
  • Mesial inclination: the tops of the teeth should angle slightly away from the midline

At Harris Dental we improve the smiles of our patients with cosmetic dentistry every day. We also offer complete general dentistry services. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!

Five Fast Ways to Improve Your Smile

Beautiful smile Cosmetic Dentistry

cosmetic dental and implants Phoenix

Do you have a special event coming up? Perhaps a wedding, graduation, milestone birthday, anniversary, or reunion? These celebrations usually involve a lot of photographs and, of course, you want to look attractive. You may not have time to lose 20 pounds, but you can dramatically transform your smile with cosmetic dentistry.

Here are five cosmetic dental procedures that can usually be performed in one office visit.

1. Veneers
Porcelain veneers have been a successful treatment for decades but we never fail to be amazed by the marvelous results they furnish. A veneer is a super-thin layer of porcelain bonded permanently to the tooth. A veneer can cover a chip, hide a crack, make discoloration disappear, or repair a misshapen tooth.

2. Gum Contouring
Perhaps your teeth are beautiful and healthy but you have a gumline that is too low or too high and detracts from the presentation. Gum contouring can reshape the gumline and perfect your smile. Book a consultation with Dr. Harris today for an intensive examination and savvy guidance regarding your gumline.

3. Enamel Shaping
Just one slightly misshapen tooth can downgrade the features of a smile even if all the other teeth have a positive appearance. (Your mouth is no place for a sore thumb, right?) Let Dr. Harris reshape the tooth so it blends in seamlessly.

4. Bonding
Dental bonding just gets better and better as additional revolutionary materials are developed. Bonding is used in a multitude of applications to repair teeth with cosmetic and structural troubles. The newest prep techniques are minimally invasive – leaving you with more of your own tooth structure.

5. Teeth Whitening
Make your smile pop with professional in-office teeth whitening. There is nothing like a fantastic white smile to give you maximum confidence.

Cosmetic dentistry from Harris Dental in Phoenix is an investment that will bless you with increased morale every day! We also offer general dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!.

Professional Teeth Whitening In Phoenix

Beautiful smile Cosmetic Dentistry Perfect smiles Teeth Whitening

Professional Teeth Whitening at Harris DentalA sensational smile leaves a lasting impression. Professional teeth whitening from Harris Dental in Phoenix can dramatically improve your appearance and give you a boost in self-confidence.

Our teeth often turn yellow or gray as we age. The things we eat and drink, such as colored sodas, coffee and red wine, contribute to the staining.

Most people know that smoking is not only bad for our lungs, but can also discolor our teeth. There are even some medications that can impact tooth color.

If you are considering having your teeth whitened, you must first choose which method to use. At Harris Dental, we enjoy discussing treatment options with our patients.

At-home whitening treatments usually consist of trays filled with whitening solution. It generally takes 7-14 days to achieve 3-6 shades lighter. Brush-on teeth gels and whitening strips take up to 30 days to achieve results. Whitening toothpaste may lighten superficial stains but often provides no change in the appearance of teeth.

All of the whitening methods may cause tooth pain or sensitivity, but this usually goes away in a few days. If you have crowns, porcelain veneers, or dental bonding, it is essential to speak with your dentist before choosing a whitening method.

At Harris Dental in Phoenix, teeth whitening is just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we use to improve smiles. Call us to schedule an appointment today!

7 Ways To Fix A Tooth

Cosmetic Dentistry Dental health General Dentistry Restorative Dentistry

fix broken tooth Phoenix

In a perfect world, each of your priceless teeth would stay healthy, strong, and brilliantly white throughout your life. The truth is, however, that most of us will need to restore a tooth at some point.

Here are 7 different options for repairing a damaged tooth:

Dental Bonding
Bonding is used to repair minor cosmetic issues – small chips, cracks, discoloration, and spaces between teeth.

Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin tooth-shaped fronts that are permanently bonded to your natural teeth.

Fillings
Modern white fillings are strong and inconspicuous. A minimally invasive filling leaves you with more of nature’s optimal dental material — your own enamel and dentin.

Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are commonly called indirect fillings. A less invasive inlay or onlay may be used instead of a traditional filling or, in some cases, a crown.

Crowns
A crown replaces the entire visible portion of the tooth, restoring appearance, stability, and function.

Soft Tissue Grafts
Gum recession puts teeth and underlying bone at risk. Soft tissue grafting can cover the exposed root of a tooth to avoid further damage. Gum surgery is also completed for cosmetic reasons such as reshaping a gumline to eliminate a “gummy” smile.

Dental Implants
A dental implant is a titanium post inserted into the jaw. One implant can support one artificial tooth, while several can support a dental bridge or arch.

For more information about any of these procedures, call Harris Dental in Phoenix. We offer general and restorative dentistry. Call for an appointment today!
