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.

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.

Our practice strives to deliver excellence with every possible service, including:

sedation dentistry
CEREC same-day crowns
dental implants
Invisalign clear braces
cosmetic dentistry

The lips, gums, mouth, facial structure, patient’s age, and coloring are all taken into consideration. This unified approach to cosmetic dentistry has helped us establish and maintain a stellar reputation in the local professional dental community.

Why Aren’t You Smiling?

Cosmetic Dentistry

Phoenix Dentistry Hello, and welcome to the Harris Dental blog. I am Dr. Harris. We are located at 4 locations in Mesa, Phoenix, Queen Creek, and Scottsdale, and you can reach us by calling 480-428-0040.

You can probably imagine why I look at smiles everywhere I go in the Phoenix area. Whether I am working with a dental patient, having dinner at my favorite Queen Creek restaurant, or attending a sporting event, I notice whether the people around me smile. Whenever I encounter someone with obvious tooth problems, I want to tell them about the procedures that can completely transform their frown into a healthy and beautiful smile.

Are you one of those people who don’t want to show their teeth? I would love to talk to you about a smile makeover. Whatever your excuse is for not seeking dental treatment, I can discuss all of your concerns with you during a free consultation.

Perhaps you are afraid of dental work. Have you ever considered oral conscious sedation? With sedation dentistry, even extensive treatment is virtually pain free. Sedation will calm your mind as well as the nerves in your mouth.

Perhaps the cost of Phoenix cosmetic dentistry is holding you back. My patient-oriented staff will be happy to talk to you about financing plans. It is important to remember that if your teeth are decayed, postponing treatment will cost more money in the long run. Filling a cavity is far more affordable dentistry than a root canal procedure or, in the case of an extracted tooth, a dental implant.

You can contact my office at 480-428-0040 or online at https://www.harrisdental.com/. I can transform your smile into one that you will want to show all the time!
