It’s understandable because the whole process of losing the tooth, whether it’s because of poor oral health or a sports injury, can be a challenge to deal with. You may feel depressed, eating certain foods can be uncomfortable or impossible, and you hate the idea of a gap in your smile.

3 Ways Today's Dentures Have Improved Over the Years

Dentures | Tucson AZ Dentist

Many patients who learn they need dentures react with dread to the idea. While the fear is unwarranted, we understand why dentures have such a bad reputation.

State-of-the-Art Dentures

Flossing is also a challenge because getting between crooked or crowded teeth can be difficult.

Eliminate a Teeth Grinding Habit

Smiling Mouth | Teeth Whitening Tucson AZ

We all want to look our best, and teeth whitening is a great way to quickly transform the appearance of your smile. Choosing over-the-counter whitening products can be tempting; after all, there is an overwhelming array to choose from, and they all claim to produce dazzling results!

But can they really do all they claim to do? Is it worth spending a few dollars to give it a try?

The bottom line is that, while an OTC treatment will provide some level of whitening, it is limited by the strength of the peroxide used in the product. Because treatment is not supervised by a professional, the concentration of hydrogen peroxide in OTC ...
