Teeth Whitening Dentistry
Teeth whitening, or teeth bleaching, is very popular today. In fact, you probably see products for it every time you’re in the drug store or supermarket. But those store methods can contain abrasive ingredients and end up causing damage to your tooth enamel. Our dental care in Scottsdale, however, is pleased to give you a choice of either having our teeth whitening done right here at our office, or letting you select a take home version to do at your own convenience. Both work very well, but the one we do here is more concentrated, and therefore will give you faster results. No matter which you go with, though, you can expect to see a noticeable difference quickly. More important, both methods are completely and totally safe for your tooth enamel. The exact number of treatments you will require depend on how white you want your teeth to be, and how discolored they are now. But even if they are yellow or brown, rest assured that you will be very excited with the outcome.
Dental implants serve both a cosmetic and a practical use. Unlike bridges and dentures, they replace not only the tooth on the surface, but also the root beneath it. This is important for three reasons: first, it creates a replacement tooth that is strong and 100% reliable, much like your natural tooth would be; second, putting in a prosthetic root keeps your gum and bone tissue from atrophying; third, your natural facial contours will be preserved, keeping your appearance unchanged.
Bridges require that the tooth on either side be drilled down and capped to anchor them, but not so with dental implants. Dentures use adhesive to hold them in, which is messy and can still allow them to slide around and affect your confidence when speaking or eating. Needless to say, dental implants form our dental care in Scottsdale need no adhesive whatsoever. The end result is a replacement tooth that looks, feels, and functions like a real one.
