Not All Smile Makeovers Are Created Equal

Hello Phoenix! Welcome to the Harris Dental dental blog. Let’s talk about smile transformations. Some Phoenix patients wonder if  the term is synonymous with general cosmetic dentistry.

Are the placement of four veneers considered a smile makeover? Well, yes and no. If your smile is attractive and healthy except for some chips in your upper front teeth, veneer placement may remedy the few cosmetic problems and result in a dazzling smile.

Generally, however, a complete smile makeover combines several carefully-chosen cosmetic dentistry procedures performed at the same time for a complete smile renewal. In other words, the sum is greater than the parts.

For example, one treatment plan could include crown restorations, veneers for teeth that are misshapen but otherwise healthy, tooth-colored filling replacement for old amalgam fillings, and teeth whitening for the crowning touch.

When we design a custom smile makeover, we study several elements in addition to the teeth. After all, the teeth are just one component of the patient’s face. The gumline, lips, mouth, facial shape, facial structure, coloring, and patient’s age affect the scope of the design. This comprehensive approach to a smile makeover achieves amazing results and sets our practice apart.

At Harris Dental in Phoenix, we provide cosmetic and general dentistry. Schedule an appointment today.

Artistic Smile Masterpieces At Harris Dental

Hello friends of Harris Dental in Phoenix! Thanks for stopping by the ultimate cosmetic dentistry blog. Today we are talking about personal transformation. Many people want to reinvent themselves in at least one facet of their life.

Some folks are training for a new career. Some men and women have made a healthy lifestyle a priority by making better food choices and working out on a regular basis. Some people are dedicating more attention to their personal relationships.

At Harris Dental, we skillfully use advanced cosmetic dentistry to transform lucky patients with complete smile makeovers.

A comprehensive smile redesign involves more than applying four or six porcelain veneers to the upper front teeth. Though veneers can dramatically improve a smile, a complete smile makeover is a total smile transformation.

We evaluate the condition, size, shape, alignment, and color of the teeth. These elements are created, meticulously refined, and integrated in perfect harmony. Like any artistic masterpiece, a perfect smile is far more than the sum of its parts.

If you have a vision for your beautiful smile, it can become a reality with cosmetic dentistry at Harris Dental in Phoenix. We also provide general dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today!

Get Them Straight! Perfect Smiles in Phoenix

Clear braces Cosmetic Dentistry Orthodontics Perfect smiles Teeth Whitening

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.
