Smile Arizona Dentistry is a cosmetic and family dentist in Scottsdale, Arizona. Founded over 27 years ago, Smile Arizona Dentistry has been providing advanced dental care services to local communities ever since. The company provides family dentistry services, cosmetic dentistry, implant services, sedation dentistry, and can help with any emergency dental needs. Smile Arizona Dentistry accepts most dental insurances and also offers teeth whitening with Glo products and Reveal invisible braces to help patients get a beautiful smile.
Smile Arizona Dentistry provides several different ways for patients to whiten their teeth. These include at-home kits, custom teeth whitening trays, and laser treatments.
The at-home treatment is a great option for patients who don’t want to spend hours in an office whitening their teeth. Patients can use professional-grade whitening gel at home and expect to see their teeth become up to five shades whiter in five days.
Smile Arizona Dentistry provides custom-made teeth whitening trays to help patients whiten specific teeth. If patients have a specific tooth that they’d like whitened, this is the treatment for them. These trays are said to be more comfortable than generic whitening trays because they’re fitted to the patient’s teeth. With whitening gel inside these custom trays, patients can protect their gums from damage that the whitening gel could cause and whiten their teeth comfortably.
For patients sho want an all inclusive whitening treatment, Smile Arizona Dentistry offers laser treatments in office. These treatments use high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide and lasers to whiten teeth up to 12 shades whiter. This whitening treatment lasts about two hours.
As teledentistry has become more popular among busy families and working professionals, Smile Arizona Dentistry has adopted this new platform. Teledentistry appointments are available to new and existing patients.These types of appointments are helpful during dental emergencies, in helping determine the urgence of a new dental problem, getting prescriptions sooner, and for post-operative care.
It’s important to note that there is a $40 fee applied when scheduling a virtual appointment. The money is billed when the patient is seen by the dentist and any insurance funds available can be used towards this cost.
Teledentistry is an up and coming trend that many healthcare providers are starting to adopt, but is still a new practice. The fact that Smile Arizona Dentistry offers this service to its patients is a great benefit.
Smile Arizona Dentistry offers Reveal invisible braces to patients who want to straighten their smile in a discrete way. If patients have mild or moderate spacing or bite issues, invisible braces are a great option for treatment.
Starting the invisible braces process requires a visit to the dental clinic. At their appointment, patients will have their teeth x-rayed to check for any hidden dental or orthodontic problems. If everything looks good with the patient’s teeth, then an impression of their teeth will be taken to create the clear aligners.
When the aligners are ready, a dentist will check to make sure that they fit correctly and patients can start their treatment. Wearing each set of invisible braces for two weeks each, the plastic molds will start to slowly move and straighten teeth.
Treatment takes 6–12 months on average with Reveal invisible braces. Treatment times vary depending on the type of work needed, but are usually within that range if the patient wears the clear aligners for 22 hours a day. This treatment time is standard or a little longer than average treatment times with other invisible braces companies.
As with most dental services, pricing depends a lot on the patient’s insurance coverage. That being said, many invisible braces companies share the overall cost of treatment and monthly payment option online. This information is readily available with other companies, but not with Smile Arizona Dentistry.
