Filtered Phoenix Water And Oral Health

A simple way for Phoenix residents to choose beverages that won’t harm their teeth is to keep it simple and make water their go-to drink. However, for safety, thrift, and convenience, many dental patients choose to drink bottled water or filter it themselves at home.

Filtered water can be detrimental to oral health if it doesn’t contain fluoride, which is a great tooth decay preventer.

If you choose bottled water and are wondering if any naturally occurring fluoride has been removed, you can check the label. If you prefer to filter your own tap water, look to see if the American Dental Association has given the filter its seal of approval.

 

Water filters that carry the ADA seal don’t remove fluoride, so you can be sure that the fluoride is still in your water and benefitting your teeth.

Celebrating The Past And Looking To The Future At Harris Dental

It has now been over 150 years since the first dental license was issued to Sir John Tomes. Arizona dental patients should be grateful for the advances made in general dentistry during the past century and a half.

There was a time when Phoenix blacksmiths and wig makers would also extract teeth with forceps to make a little extra money. Anyone could call themselves a dentist. Often these untrained people broke the jaws of the person they were trying to help. Ouch!

At Harris Dental, we celebrate with the Phoenix dental community and marvel at the many advances made in the history of dentistry, particularly cosmetic dentistry.

One of the modern treatments that has helped countless Phoenix patients is invisible braces. This non-visible orthodontic therapy is custom made for each patient. They are transparent and removable and will help you achieve your desired smile in about 3 to 18 months.

As a cutting-edge dental practice in Phoenix, our dentists continually seek training so we can expertly perform the latest procedures. In addition, our practice uses the most advanced dental materials available.

If you are one of the many Phoenix residents who has dreamed of an esthetic improvement to your smile, we invite you to make an appointment with Harris Dental to discuss a smile makeover. Complete smile transformations are performed as quickly and professionally as possible – sometimes in just one visit!

One of our most sought after treatments at Harris Dental is teeth whitening and many Phoenix patients are enjoying a brighter smile because of cosmetic dentistry.

At Harris Dental we have been serving the residents of Arizona since 1979 and would love to provide you and your family with professional, friendly dental care.

Unfortunately, not everyone in Phoenix smiles all the time. And not everyone in Mesa is smiled at all the time. But even frowns need to be clean if you want to maintain a high level of oral health.

If you are looking for a dentist in Mesa that will serve you with a smile and help keep your teeth ready for a smile at a moment’s notice, we invite you to schedule a consultation at Harris Dental in Phoenix.

The patient-oriented dental team at Harris Dental has been cleaning, restoring and improving smiles in Phoenix, Arizona since 1979. We do find that patients are interested in more than clean teeth and healthy gums, though these are certainly essential priorities.

We provide a wide variety of cutting-edge cosmetic dentistry services for our patients. Our dental services include but are not limited to CEREC same-day crowns, dental implants, sedation dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and Invisalign clear braces.

If it’s not a mega-watt celebrity smile you’re looking for, then perhaps we could interest you in a more serious professional look or a sly half grin. If your frown’s getting you down, even when your teeth have been cleaned, let us help you achieve the look that will make you proud to smile. We can meet your needs and answer your questions:

How much do braces cost in Mesa?
What is that pain when I chew?
Do I need a crown?
Can I straighten my teeth without braces?
What can be done with this chipped tooth?
Am I a candidate for veneers?
How does a dental bridge work?
What is the cost of dental implants in Scottsdale?
Will my insurance pay for porcelain crowns?

How To Get The Whitest Teeth

Teeth Whitening Uncategorized

teeth whitening Phoenix

Some people’s teeth are whiter than others, but I think it’s safe to say that most of us Phoenix residents want our teeth to be pearly white! If you are one of those people, then Harris Dental can help you achieve that unforgettable beautiful smile you deserve. Today we want to share some tips on teeth whitening and what we can do for you!

Don’t Forget to Brush
The first tip seems like a no-brainer, but many people still miss this practice. We are talking about daily tooth brushing. Brushing your teeth with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste is one of the best ways to keep your teeth clean and prevent dental caries. Often our teeth become discolored or stained because of what we consume (drinks, food, etc.) but when we brush our teeth, it decreases the damage.

After brushing teeth, another tip is using a fluoride rinse to finish the cleaning job. Fluoride helps get into the cracks where bacteria can be hiding away. When the bacteria is killed, it prevents it from spreading and discoloring your teeth. When you are shopping for a fluoride rinse, check the labels. Some ordinary mouthwashes don’t contain fluoride.

Sometimes the discoloration is too extreme to be reversed by home remedies. That’s why we at Harris Dental offer other powerful care to whiten your smile. We provide in-office teeth whitening and take home tooth bleaching kits. Each of these methods provide an effective solution to teeth whitening. The patient-oriented at Harris Dental will work with you to find the best solution to improve your smile.

Keeping Kids Smiling At Harris Dental

General Dentistry Uncategorized

Dentistry For Child Harris Dental in Phoenix serves patients of all ages and provides general dentistry for children. Our patient-oriented staff takes special care of our youngest patients to make sure they are comfortable and safe.

We Pamper Our Youngest Patients

Being extra gentle with our young patients is important. We understand that going to the dentist can be a bit frightening for a child, so we make sure they are comfortable with their surroundings, and always invite mom or dad to join them in the room. We make sure they understand which procedures are required and answer their questions.

Children’s dentistry requires more than just comfort, however. Our skilled team of dentists understands how children’s dentistry differs from the treatment for older patients. If you have questions about dental sealants or sports mouthguards, call 480-428-0040 today to set up a consultation.

The American Dental Association counsels parents to bring their toddler to a dentist when their first tooth breaks through or around one year of age. By starting regular dental visits at the toddler age and teaching appropriate hygiene, we can help you reinforce vital oral care habits and lifestyle choices that will produce strong and healthy teeth.

In addition to children’s dentistry, Harris Dental offers:

  • sedation dentistry
  • CEREC same-day crowns
  • dental implants
  • cosmetic dentistry

We are currently accepting new general and cosmetic dentistry patients of all ages. We look forward to meeting you and your child.
