Let’s Take Care Of Those Tooth Stains

Phoenix Teeth Bleaching

Maybe you’ve always wanted a dazzling, movie star smile. Or maybe your teeth have just grown dull with the passage of time. Whatever motivates you, you’re one of millions who want to brighten their smiles with teeth whitening, like the professional whitening at Harris Dental in Phoenix.

The effectiveness of teeth whitening depends partly on the types of stains.

Extrinsic tooth stains are the best to remove. These surface stains have not yet penetrated through the enamel into the dentin. Extrinsic stains are caused by dark-colored foods and beverages like blueberries, carrots, coffee, red wine, and cola. And nicotine is no better for your smile than it is for your lungs.

Intrinsic tooth stains develop from the inside out. Tooth injury or tetracycline are the usual culprits. Intrinsic stains are harder to remove, but it is possible to lighten them.

You can take years off your appearance with professional teeth whitening from Harris Dental in Phoenix. It’s among our most popualr cosmetic dentistry procedures. Call us to schedule an appointment today!

How Bright Can You Shine?

Cosmetic Dentistry Teeth Whitening

Affordable Phoenix Cosmetic Dentistry

Most people notice their teeth dull as the years go by. But foods, drinks, and even mouthwashes can stain teeth at any age. You can do something about it with professional teeth whitening from Harris Dental in Phoenix.

Over the counter whitening products like toothpastes and strips may whiten teeth a little bit, but none of them can match professional strength whitening.

If you have dental veneers, bonding, or bridges, teeth whitening will not affect the stains and your whitened natural teeth may make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Harris Dental, we can advise you about new dental work, including veneers or bondings, if these have discolored with age.

Brushing after meals can keep stains at bay. But immediately after consuming acidic foods or drinks, just rinse your mouth with water. Brushing before the acids are neutralized or washed away can damage enamel.

In-office teeth whitening takes about an hour and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. Professional take-home whitening kits are also available at Harris Dental and can produce wonderful results over time.

Teeth whitening is one of the cosmetic dentistry services offered at Harris Dental in Phoenix. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Whitening vs Bleaching At Harris Dental

Beautiful smile Cosmetic Dentistry Teeth Whitening

Whitening vs Bleaching At Harris Dental In Phoenix

Everyone would like a beautiful smile with brillian white teeth. That explains why teeth whitening is such a popular cosmetic dental service at Harris Dental in Phoenix.

You hear the terms teeth whitening and teeth bleaching used almost interchangeably, but they mean two different things. Teeth whitener can refer to any product used to remove stains from tooth enamel: toothpaste, DIY strips, and some mouthwashes are safe and affordable and can illuminate teeth with continued, regular use. The extent of whitening varies, and it takes dedicated, scheduled use to see results.

Whitening products that do not contain bleach can usually make teeth two to four shades lighter. These are a good choice for people with sensitive teeth and gums that can react to products containing harsher whitening chemicals. Harris Dental guides pregnant or nursing mothers to choose the non-bleach whitening products.

The term “bleaching” is used to describe a tooth whitening product that contains a form of bleach, either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, in varying concentrations. For best results, teeth bleaching should be done in-office. Bleaching generally gets more noticeable results, sometimes up to seven shades lighter. Intrinsic stains on the dentin, as well as surface stains can be effectively lightened under an experienced dentist’s supervision.

At Harris Dental in Phoenix, we offer at-home and in-office teeth whitening, and other cosmetic dentistry services. Call our patient-oriented team to schedule a consultation!

The Ultimate Anti-Aging Treatment

Cosmetic Dentistry General Dentistry Teeth Whitening

Phoenix Pediatric DentistryWishing for a whiter smile but not sure how to get it? New to tooth whitening jargon? At Harris Dental in Phoenix, we educate patients on the variety of teeth whitening procedures, from whitening trays to over-the-counter products. We do smile lightening every day.

Toothpaste Can’t Erase All Stains

Almost every toothpaste claims to brighten teeth, but as we age our teeth gradually turn yellow or gray, despite all the whitening toothpastes we use repeatedly. Tooth enamel, while one of the toughest substances in the body, is porous. Over time, the food and drinks that come in contact with our teeth bring about staining and discoloration. You probably have already noticed that a toothbrush cannot clean these microscopic pores.

Powerful Peroxide

Carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide are the two main smile whitening substances. They can penetrate the outer layer of your teeth to remove the build-up and help restore the initial color.

Call Harris Dental in Phoenix to schedule a teeth whitening appointment, and we will explain the difference between these tooth bleaching ingredients and how they may impact your smile whitening results. We also offer general dentistry. Make an appointment today.

Lighten Up In Phoenix

Lighten Up In Phoenix

Hello! This article is for people with stained teeth. Do you think your teeth are too stained for teeth whitening to have any effect? Think again. At Harris Dental in Phoenix, we are whitening smiles for patients with both intrinsic and extrinsic stains.

What’s the difference? you may ask. Fair question. Extrinsic stains are caused by dark colored foods and drinks, smoking, and normal aging. Harris Dental cosmetic dentistry patients with extrinsic stains achieve great results from both in-office and take-home teeth whitening systems.

Intrinsic stains form on the inside but can be seen from the outside. Tetracycline, excessive fluoride, trauma, and aging can cause intrinsic staining for unfortunate Phoenix dentistry patients. Though these stains are harder to remove, many patients with intrinsic staining can whiten their teeth with take-home whitening kits. The process often takes longer, but with persistence, intrinsic stains can be lightened.

In addition to teeth whitening, Harris Dental provides a full menu of cosmetic dentistry procedures. Call us to schedule a consultation.
