Smile Correction In Phoenix & Ahwatukee, AZ
Treatments & Affordability
Some people have either crooked teeth, broken teeth, or yellowed teeth. This causes them to be afraid to fully and naturally smile. Others get to the point of avoiding social situations because of the appearance of their teeth. The reason that some have dental problems is because they did not have dental service for a period of time, and their dental care was neglected. For others, it is because they fear dentists and dental service because they don’t want to experience pain.
For many, smile correction begins with whitening yellowed teeth. The best way to treat yellowed or yellowing teeth is to begin with the basics. Brush your teeth after every meal, and try to floss daily. Twice a year, come into our friendly offices at Imagine Dental in Ahwatukee and Phoenix to have your teeth professionally cleaned. We will gently remove all of the tartar and plaque buildup on your teeth that is making your smile less than stellar. The side benefit of regular teeth cleaning is that it will help you avoid cavities.
At times, a good cleaning and regular brushing is not enough. We have services to further help your smile correction routine by teeth whitening procedures. These procedures change the color of the enamel of your teeth. For those of you who are afraid of dentists, you will like this procedure because you can do it at home. First, we take a mold of your teeth and make a custom tray for bleaching. Then, you bleach your teeth at home. Whitening can also be done in a few visits to our office. This procedure is with the use of a whitening gel that is activated by a laser. The in-house whitening procedure usually takes a few visits.
Many people with crooked teeth just leave them as is when they get to adulthood because they don’t want to wear “railroad tracks” on their teeth until their smile correction is complete. Dentistry today has answers for the dreaded railroad tracks look.
Two products adults prefer to straighten crooked teeth are Invisalign and ClearCorrect. These are removable devices that do not produce as much pain nor produce the cuts in your soft tissues that metal braces can produce. They are also clear and hard to detect. Since you can remove these straightening devices, it is easier to maintain the rest of your dental health with full flossing and brushing. Also, Invisalign and ClearCorrect treatments tend to only take a year and a half to two years as opposed to metal braces that can take two to three years to produce the desired smile correction.
If you have missing or broken teeth due to accidents, tooth decay, osteoporosis or other reasons, Imagine Dental can help you as well. Broken teeth that have not impacted other teeth nearby can be remedied quickly with crowns that are like a cap that covers your broken tooth. If two or more teeth are missing, a removable dental bridge can be made to span the missing teeth. Other options for missing teeth include dentures and tooth implants that put a new tooth surgically in your jawbone.
Dentists use a local anesthesia injected in your gums to prevent you from feeling the pain of drilling. Also, we can utilize nitrous oxide, which is a gas that will put you out long enough to get through the dental procedure but will not cause a problem when you need to drive home.

When it comes to ClearCorrect and Invisalign for crooked teeth, if you have orthodontic coverage on your insurance, you are covered for these treatments. The same is true for twice-yearly teeth cleaning services for yellowed teeth. Smile correction for broken and missing teeth is also covered on your insurance. At Imagine Dental, we work with a very long list of supported insurance providers. Also, we have a discounted dental plan for families without dental insurance coverage.
