Cosmetic dentistry option of Porcelain CrownsPORCELAIN CROWNS — Restore that beautiful smile

Porcelain dental crowns, also known as Caps, are natural looking “teeth” that fit securely over your existing teeth. They are used to restore cracks, chips, large areas of decay, and injuries or discoloration of the teeth.  Porcelain crowns are virtually undetectable and provide the aesthetic look of a healthy tooth, while providing the additional support and protection that a damaged tooth needs.

Scottsdale Dental Arts uses only the highest quality porcelain crowns, and offers all gold, porcelain fused to gold, and porcelain zirconia crowns which have the strength of an all-metal crown, with the aesthetic look of a natural tooth.

Dental VeneersDENTAL VENEERS — Rejuvenate your smile 

Are your teeth stained, chipped, misaligned or crooked? If so, dental veneers may be just what you need to give you the healthy smile that you have always wanted. Made of porcelain, these thin wafers fit securely over your natural teeth are and virtually undetectable. They are stain-resistant and durable, and can be color matched to your existing teeth or lightened to brighten up a dull smile. Scottsdale Dental Arts is pleased to offer our patients only the highest quality of porcelain dental veneers.

Example of Dental ImplantsDENTAL IMPLANTS — Rediscover comfort and confidence

Are you missing a tooth or several teeth? Are you tired of dentures or bridges that look unnatural? Do you long to eat, speak, and laugh with confidence? If so, dental implants may be a great alternative for you. Surgically placed into your jawbone, dental implants are artificial roots made of titanium that act just like the natural roots of your teeth. These “roots” are held securely in place by your bone and gum tissue. Capped by an aesthetic crown, these artificial teeth offer a stronger, more natural looking alternative to bridges or dentures.

Scottsdale Dental Arts will work closely with the best Oral Surgeons and Periodontists in Scottsdale to ensure the perfect placement of your new “root.” After your dental implant is placed, Dr. McCargar will then ensure the effectiveness of your treatment by placing a high quality porcelain crown on your new root.

Cosmetic Teeth WhiteningTEETH WHITENING  Revive your bright smile

Whitening your teeth can be one of the easiest things that you can do to improve the quality of your smile. Scottsdale Dental Arts offers the most reliable teeth whitening products on the market today. Using the Opalessence Boost in-office tooth whitening system, a hydrogen peroxide based, self-activating gel is applied to your teeth over four 15-minute sessions during one convenient appointment. This is then followed by a brief fluoride treatment. In just a single visit, you can improve the brightness of your smile by up to 10 shades! And, with touchups and routine care, the effects of the Opalessence Boost whitening system can last indefinitely.

In addition to in-office teeth whitening, our office also offers the Opalessence take-home whitening system. This system allows you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home. Dr. McCargar will take an impression of your teeth and then create customized trays to accompany your take-home bleaching kit. Made of plastic, these trays fit snugly over your teeth, protecting your gums and tongue from the bleach, while focusing the powerful whitening gel to create a pearly white smile.

Alinger used with Invisalign at Scottsdale Dental ArtsINVISALIGN  Reveal a perfect smile

Scottsdale Dental Arts strives to help you achieve that beautiful smile that you have always wanted by offering Invisalign, an effective way to straighten teeth without unsightly bands, wires or brackets that can irritate your mouth.

Invisalign uses a series of invisible aligners to gently move your teeth to achieve that perfect smile. Using 3-D computer technology, Dr. McCargar will create a plan to straighten your teeth using a series of clear, removable aligners. As your teeth begin to move, you will continue to contour your smile by changing your aligners approximately every two weeks. As part of your treatment, you will be required to visit Dr. McCargar every month or two to check your progression and to receive new aligners. The average treatment time with Invisalign is approximately 12 months, and throughout treatment you will be able to easily remove the aligners so that you can eat your favorite foods while continuing to brush and floss normally for optimal oral health. Throughout the course of your treatment, Scottsdale Dental Arts will provide you with tips on using Invisalign cleaner, and will be there to address any questions or problems with Invisalign.
